Covid-19 Reaches The White House, Mike Pence and Wife to Be Tested

There is no reason to believe that the Vice President is in danger at this time.

As our nation continues to spread the word about “social distancing”, there have been plenty of naysayer still populating the platforms of social media.

There are folks out there who still refuse to believe that Covid-19 is a threat, and who constantly retweet or “share” misleading or outright false information regarding the illness and its effects. ¬†There are some who even believe that this is merely a ruse to impose martial law on the nation, or this is an “illuminati” plan to depopulate the world.

Of course, this wild speculation will likely be taken down a notch after the virus has now arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Pence said here was “no reason to believe” he or his wife, Karen Pence, were exposed to the virus. But he said he will get tested because of his sensitive role in the Trump administration. Pence made the comments at a Saturday afternoon press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic alongside President Donald Trump.

“We’ve done all contact tracing and while the White House doctor has indicated that he has no reason to believe that I was exposed and no need to be tested, given the unique position that I have as vice president and as the leader of the White House coronavirus task force, both I and my wife will be tested for the coronavirus later this afternoon,” Pence said.

Officials hope that they’ve nipped the exposure in the bud.

The White House learned on Friday that a member of Pence’s staff had tested positive for the coronavirus. Pence said the staffer “had mild cold-like symptoms” for about a day and a half but is “doing well.”

“He has not been to the White House since Monday,” Pence added. “Neither the president nor I had direct contact with that staff person.”

Those claiming conspiracy can go ahead and socially distance themselves even further from the rest of us now, if they don’t mind.
