Pence Staffer Infected; 1st WH Staffer to Test Positive

A member of Vice President Mike Pence’s staff has tested positive for coronavirus, his office announced on Friday evening. According to news reports, that represents the first known positive test to date for a staffer at the White House.

Neither Pence nor President Donald Trump “had close contact with the individual,” Pence spokeswoman Katie Miller said in a statement, without naming the staffer.

“Further contact tracing is being conducted in accordance with” guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

According to Fox News, Miller said there are efforts being made to identify others the individual has had contact with.

Trump has tested negative for the virus. He underwent testing last Friday after questions from reporters about his interactions with people who were infected or were concerned they had the virus.

Pence said earlier this week he had not been tested.

Pence was appointed by Trump to lead the White House’s coronavirus task force, which has been holding daily press briefings on national efforts to bring the virus to heel.

  1. No one is immune from this virus unfortunately but we all should wish anyone with this virus or any disease a quick and speedy recovery. Remember anyone can get it even you A-HOLES so be careful of your surroundings.

  2. China this was no mistake ! It was chemical warfare , world wide ! Just what were you testing ? It seems to me that this plays right into the Democrats hands , they’ve talked about the elderly , and to remove them all , because they vote republican. I remember obama and Hillary saying , withhold life saving drugs to insure that happens , there’s cures out there that could save many many lives , pharmaceutical companies paid Democrats to hide cures for cancer and diabetes along with others. It’s just like the 200 miles per gallon carburator there out there but not for us , petroleum companies bought the rights to them. And stored them away , never to be seen again. This was back in the 1970s ! It’s a damn shame.

    1. U mean the Pogue carburetor. Last I heard was Mobil oil of Canada hid the plans 4 yrs. However no oil company has any rights 2 buy since original inventor never sold plans. There4 plans 4 said carburetor & similar derivatives should B public domain.
