A member of the US Coronavirus Task Force says she had a fever over the weekend, urging everyone to take 'personal responsibility'.

One of the common symptoms of coronavirus includes a low-grade fever.

After hearing Dr Deborah Birx had a fever over the weekend, US President Donald Trump quickly took a step back.

"So actually, probably a good thing, but you know I'm meticulous; I'm a physician," explains Dr Birx, "I got a test late Saturday night and I'm negative. I stayed home another day."

Mr Trump replied, "Phew! Thank you for saying that."
