The Democratic candidate for the vice presidency of the United States, Kamala Harris, has canceled her agenda on Thursday until next week after two of your campaign collaborators have positive in the coronavirus test.
Joe Biden chose Harris last August to be his right hand and future vice president of the country if on November 3 he manages to defeat President Donald Trump in the US elections. “A fearless fighter for humble people and one of the best public servants in the country “, he defined her.
Harris Communications Director, Liz Allen, and a member of the flight crew have tested positive for Covid-19. Two colleagues with whom the candidate affirms not having had close contact, based on the indications presented by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And it is that “during her flights, Senator Harris wore an N95 mask.”
“Last night I learned that a member of the crew of my plane, who does not belong to my staff, and a member of my campaign tested positive for Covid,” Harris wrote on his official Twitter account. “Me I was not in close contact with any of them during the two days before their positive tests, “he added.
Still, to maintain caution, Thursday’s planned trip to North Carolina has been scrapped and the democrat will stay off the road until next monday, as reported by CNN.
Similarly, Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon, has clarified that “None of these people have had contact with Vice President Biden, Senator Harris or any other member of staff since they tested positive “in the PCR. And, according to Dillon,” these protocols help protect the campaign, the staff and anyone with whom they may have contact.
Now, “the former vice president continues with his agenda today,” since “he was not in close contact with either of these two people,” according to Dillon.
Since October 8, Harris has performed two PCR tests, including last Wednesday in which tested negative for coronavirus, the results of which he has made public immediately. A transparency that contrasts with the attitude taken by the team of his rival, the president of the United States, Donald Trump, who has not yet revealed his state of health after passing the disease.
In addition, the Biden campaign has begun the contact tracing process “to notify everyone who came into contact with infected people.” The team, too, scrapped Harris’s husband Doug Emhoff’s plans, who would travel to Minnesota this Thursday to campaign with Jill Biden.
