According to new White House reports, Mike Pence’s spokesperson, Katie Miller has tested positive for coronavirus, COVID-19! This comes only a day after it was also confirmed that one of president Donald Trump’s personal valets is also infected with the virus!
In the meantime, Katie Miller has confirmed that she has indeed tested positive for COVID-19, also revealing via NBC News that she is not experiencing any symptoms at all!
As you might know, Katie’s husband is White House senior advisor Stephen Miller who works closely with the president and vice president as well.
CNN reported that Pence was en route to Des Moines, Iowa on Air Force Two when he and the members of his team were informed about the test results.
That being said, the plane ended up getting delayed for about an hour at Joint Base Andrews near DC.
They reported that Katie was not on board at the time but there were, of course, concerns that someone else might have had it if they had been in direct contact with her.
Some of the people were deplaned and only then the plane was allowed to take off again.
At this time, Pence is yet to open up about his member of the staff being diagnosed with the dangerous virus that has been spreading all over the world, particularly in the States, where there are much more cases than anywhere else!
In fact, at this point, America has over a quarter of the total global number of cases, being pretty much the epicenter of the pandemic.
With that being said, it makes sense that a lot of American citizens are very concerned and upset with the current leadership that has proven generally incompetent when it comes to taking proper measures to contain the pandemic.
Seeing how there are even more and more people close to the country’s biggest leaders getting infected with the virus, it’s only adding to people’s outrage and disappointment over how things are being handled.
