    Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar is on Capitol Hill Friday testifying before a House Committee on the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Azar’s appearance comes as the country woke up to the news that President Donald Trump and his wife Melania tested positive for the COVID-19. Trump’s positive test came just hours after he confirmed late Thursday that senior aide Hope Hicks had come down with the virus. Trump, who has spent much of the year downplaying the threat of a virus that has killed more than 205,000 Americans, said he and Mrs. Trump were quarantining. The White House physician said the president is expected to continue carrying out his duties “without disruption” while recovering. A White House official said Friday morning that the president was experiencing mild symptoms but was working from the White House residence.
