The Democratic candidate for vice presidency of the United States Kamala Harris, has suspended his campaign trips until Sunday after two cases of covid-19 in your environment, with whom the senator was not in “close contact,” the Democratic team announced Thursday.
Two people linked to the campaign tested positive for the new coronavirus: Liz Allen, Harris communications director, and a Member of the flight crew that does not belong to the staff, reported in a statement. Both infected were with the candidate on a flight on October 8, although they did not create danger by not coming into direct contact with her.
Harris does not need to quarantine himself, but in an “excess of caution”, will keep your commitments virtually and will only return to the field on Monday 19, he added. In the last fifteen days, the Democratic candidate for the vice presidency has undergone two PCR tests with negative results, the last of them this Wednesday, October 14.
The coronavirus has also been present in the Republican party’s campaign after Trump’s positive a couple of weeks ago and from which he has already almost fully recovered. Like the president, first lady, Melania Trump, and Barron Trump, the son of the marriage, have passed the disease.
