Joe Biden’s vice presidential candidate will be in isolation until Sunday.
The Democratic candidate for the vice presidency of the United States, Kamala Harris, announced that she will suspend her trips until Sunday after confirming two cases of coronavirus in her environment.
The people linked to Harris who tested positive in the past few hours are his communications director, Liz Allen, and a non-staff member of the flight crew.
As reported, Harris will not need to remain in quarantine, but in a “excess of caution” He will keep his commitments virtually and will only return to the campaign on Monday 19.
“I was not in close contact with either of them during the two days prior to his positive tests, “said Harris on his Twitter account.
The vice candidate specified that the two PCR tests that were done this week were negative and that she does not present symptoms. “Both the crew member and the staff member wore N95 chinstraps the entire time they were around me and our doctors believe we were not exposed,” he said.
The candidate was scheduled to travel to North Carolina on Thursday to encourage voters to cast their early votes.
Meanwhile, the Biden campaign reported that the candidate for president had no exposure, though he and Harris spent several hours campaigning together in Arizona on October 8.
The news comes amid a presidential campaign disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic and two weeks after President Donald Trump tested positive for the virus.
Harris took advantage of the news to ask the population of the country hardest hit by the pandemic to “wear chinstraps, practice social distancing and wash their hands regularly.”
