As the vice president noted, one of the employees of his staff was previously infected.
“We found out about it yesterday (on Friday – TASS approx.) Late at night,” said Pence. “I am pleased to report that he is doing well, for about a day and a half he had mild symptoms that are common with a cold. He’s not been at the White House since Monday, neither the president [США Дональд Трамп], neither did I contact this employee directly. ”
“My wife and I will pass the coronavirus test later this afternoon,” Pence said.
As he noted, doctors previously stated that “there is no reason to believe” that he could become infected. The vice president emphasized that the test will take place as a precautionary measure, given the importance of his post, as well as the fact that he is coordinating efforts in the United States to combat the spread of the virus.
According to Johns Hopkins University, which calculates based on data from federal and local authorities, in the United States recorded more than 22 thousand cases of infection with a new coronavirus. At least 278 people died.
