The U.S. just recorded its worst week for new COVID-19 infections since the beginning of the pandemic, with over 500,000 new cases. Dr. Neeta Ogden joined CBSN to discuss the surge, which is especially severe in parts of the Midwest. In the days leading up to his COVID-19 diagnosis early Friday, President Donald Trump had a heavy schedule of appearances—a fact that is now raising questions about when exactly Trump contracted the virus and concerns about how it may have spread to others in his inner circle and beyond. Here's a timeline of events leading up to Trump's early Friday tweet announcing he had tested positive. Hours before his diagnosis was announced, he met with 50 wealthy donors at his New Jersey golf club. Judge Amy Coney Barrett was questioned by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., about the Affordable Care Act and was asked whether she would consider recusing herself from the Supreme Court case if she were confirmed. Before President Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 he had a busy week, traveling from Washington, DC, to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Minnesota and New Jersey.
