Pence still traveling despite COVID outbreak among staffPosted by Annie May / October 26, 2020
The White House’s COVID outbreak has spread to the Vice President’s office. His chief of staff, Marc Short, tested positive for the virus. Despite Pence’s exposure, he will still travel.
Trump’s press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and two of her deputies have tested positive for COVID, as has a New York Times White House reporter, who complained that the White House is not contact tracing.
A source told the Associated Press that President Trump was given supplemental oxygen before going to the hospital. He appears to be doing better now, though. He is no longer on oxygen, and he has been given his first dose of Remdesivir, an experimental antiviral treatment.
Donald Trump and his wife have tested positive for COVID. Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Convention, has also tested positive for COVID. And, according to Christ Christie, no one on Trump’s debate prep team was wearing a mask, meaning it is likely that all of Trump’s aides have been exposed to COVID.
Some staffers report that Trump was showing signs of COVID on Wednesday, leading to some fears that Joe Biden might have been exposed during Tuesday’s debate. Fortunately, Biden has tested negative so far.
