COVID-19 Cases Near And In The White House
A member of Vice President Mike Pence's staff has tested positive for COVID-19. Katie Miller, the Vice President's Press Secretary, confirms to NBC News that she has tested positive for coronavirus. She said she tested negative yesterday and then positive today, but she says she is asymptomatic. Katie Miller is the wife of Stephen Miller, a top adviser to the President who is in frequent contact with him. Pence's trip to Iowa was delayed after learning of the positive case. Reporters saw multiple staff members exit Air Force Two just before exiting Washington en route to Iowa.
A number of Secret Service members have also tested positive for the coronavirus. Yahoo News reports there are 11 active cases of COVID-19 among the agency as of Thursday. There are also 23 members who have already recovered and dozens more who are allegedly self-quarantining. However, it is not clear if any have been working in the White House or with President Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.
