The novel coronavirus is no respecter of persons.
President Donald Trump admitted during a press briefing that Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary, Katie Miller has contracted COVID-19.
“She’s a wonderful young woman, Katie, she tested very good for a long period of time,” said President Trump. “Then all of a sudden today she tested positive. She hasn’t come into contact with me. She’s spent some time with the vice president.”
Trump confirmed that Pence know about it and was taking precautions.
“Mike knows about it and Mike has done what he has to do,” Trump said. “I think he is on an airplane, going to some faraway place, but you’ll be able to ask him later on. But they’ve taken all of the necessary precautions. I understand Mike has been tested, vice president, and he tested negative.”
