Kamala Harris

US Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for Covid, according to a White House statement on Tuesday.

Harris is reportedly not exhibiting any symptoms and President Biden is not a close contact.

According to the press statement, Kamala Harris has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence.

“She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules,” the statement noted.

Harris will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of physicians and will return to the White House when she tests negative.

Harris, 57, received her first Moderna Covid-19 vaccination dosage weeks before taking office and a second dose two days after Inauguration Day in 2021. She had a booster shot in late October and another one on April 1.

People who have been fully vaccinated and boosted have a significant level of protection against serious disease and mortality caused by Covid-19, particularly the most frequent and highly transmissible omicron strain.

Harris’ diagnosis comes a month after her husband, Doug Emhoff, recovered from the virus, during a surge of instances of the highly transmissible omicron subvariant that has infected Cabinet members, White House workers, and lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

After more than two years and almost a million deaths in the United States, the virus is still killing more than 300 people every day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to the public health department, unvaccinated people are more than three times more likely to test positive for the virus and 20 times more likely to die from it than those who have had at least a primary dose of the immunizations.
