Senator Kamala Harris, the Democrats ‘vice presidential candidate, cancels all travel over the weekend after infection was detected among Harris’ campaign staff.
This is stated by the election campaign management in a statement on Thursday afternoon, according to the Washington Post.
Two people working for Harris’ election campaign have tested positive for the coronavirus. They have now been placed in isolation.
– Not close contact
In the statement from Joe Bidens and Kamala Harris’ election campaign management, it is emphasized that the infected have not had close contact with Vice Presidential candidate Harris, as defined by the CDC, the American Infection Control Agency.
– Harris has not been in contact with any of these in the two days before they took positive tests, and consequently there is no requirement for quarantine, the statement says.
Nevertheless, the election campaign wants to take extra precautions, it is emphasized in the statement. They emphasize that Harris will still campaign, but that it will take place virtually.

After a weekend, the president was discharged, and a week after his discharge, he was discharged. Then he immediately began to hold large public meetings, to the great despair of the infection control experts.
In Florida earlier this week, he gathered several thousand listeners, and repeated the business in Pennsylvania two days later. On Friday, he travels again to Florida and will again hold a similar public meeting.
Joe Biden, the Democrats’ presidential candidate, also meets voters, but on a much smaller scale and in other ways than Trump.
On the same day that Trump held his first public meeting after the corona recovery announcement, Biden held two election campaign meetings in Ohio.
