Member of U.S. Vice President Pence’s office tests positive for coronavirus

A member of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence’s office has actually evaluated positively for the coronavirus; however, neither President Donald Trump nor Pence has actually had close contact with the person, Pence’s press secretary Katie Miller stated in a declaration on Friday.

Miller stated Pence’s office was informed on Friday night about the positive test. The declaration did not call the person. “Further contact tracing is being conducted in accordance with CDC guidelines,” she stated, describing the Centers for Illness Control and Avoidance.

Pence is leading the White House job force formed to combat the breakout.

The vice president’s office did not instantly react to a demand for additional information and whether Pence would now be evaluated.

White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham stated recently that Pence did not need screening after dining with a Brazilian federal government official who later on evaluated positively for the illness.

President Donald Trump has actually evaluated unfavorably for the coronavirus, his physician stated recently.

Two members of the U.S. House of Representatives, Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida and Ben McAdams of Utah, stated on Wednesday they had actually evaluated positive, ending up being the first members of Congress understood to have actually contracted the breathing disease.
