US Vice-President’s Mike Pence’s chief of staff has examined positive for the coronavirus.
Mr Pence and his spouse, Karen Pence, each examined negative for the virus on Saturday and stay in good well being, spokesman Devin O’Malley mentioned.
Marc Short is Mr Pence’s closest aide and the Vice-President is considered a “close contact” below Facilities for Illness Control and Prevention tips.
However Mr Pence’ spokesman mentioned the Vice-President meant to proceed together with his election campaign schedule.
“In session with the White House Medical Unit, the Vice-President will keep his schedule in accordance with the CDC tips for important personnel,” Mr O’Malley mentioned.
Mr Short joins a growing list of White House staff and senior Republicans who’ve caught coronavirus.
