U.S. Vice President Pence, wife test negative for coronavirus

U.S. Vice President Pence and his wife, Karen, have tested negative for coronavirus, the vice president’s press secretary Katie Miller tweeted on Saturday night.

Pence said earlier Saturday that he and his wife would be tested for the coronavirus after a member of the vice president’s staff tested positive for COVID-19. “The White House doctor has indicated he has no reason to believe that I was exposed and no need to be tested,” Pence told the daily briefing at the White House.

“Given the unique position I have as vice president and as the leader of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, both I and my wife will be tested for the coronavirus later this afternoon.” And the test, just like the one for Donald Trump, turned negative.
