It is known that this is the second case of infection among Pence’s subordinates since March. Some White House workers began wearing protective masks.
The day before it became known that the coronavirus disease was found in the personal aide of US President Donald Trump. The president and vice president are now being tested for coronavirus on a daily basis, although they used to be tested every week.
Last month, the US Centers for Disease Control recommended that citizens wear masks when meeting other people to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
However, Pence and Trump avoided wearing protective equipment when appearing in public.
We will remind, in particular the vice-president was criticized that on April 29 he visited hospital and was thus without a mask.
News of Pence’s office worker’s illness delayed the vice president’s trip to Iowa on May 8. There he plans to meet with clergy to discuss the terms of “responsible” mass events.
There are currently 1.3 million cases of COVID-19 in the United States, of which 76,000 are fatal. These are the highest rates among the countries of the world.
