A White House staffer and a senior aide to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi have contracted COVID-19 while working in Washington despite their fully vaccinated status.
It comes after a White House press briefing where public health officials emphasised the coronavirus was mostly spreading among unvaccinated Americans.
“There is a clear message that is coming through: This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” a Centre of Disease Control and Prevention (DCDC) official said.
The COVID-positive tests in Washington were reported by the White House and a spokesman for Ms Pelosi on Tuesday with the senior aide believed to have been infected by a Democrat Texas delegation.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been blasted as a ‘hypocrite’ for going maskless to a White House event after she fined…
The COVID-spreader event took place last week and the aide in question has not been in contact with Ms Pelosi since, spokesman Drew Hammill said.
It’s believed the White House staffer attended an event with Ms Pelosi’s aide last week and only experienced mild symptoms.
House Speaker Ms Pelosi is 81-years-old and lies in a vulnerable age group where the coronavirus poses a greater threat.
The positive diagnosis triggered remote work on Tuesday for any member of the press office who had been in contact with the aide or had not recently tested negative.
The Democrat Texas delegation – who is believed to have passed on the virus to Ms Pelosi’s aide – arrived in the US capital on July 1 in a bid to block a Republican voting bill.
By Monday, six members of the group had tested positive for the virus and were forced into self-isolation.
The Democrat Delegation rushed to Washington in a bit to raise awareness about a Republican bill seeking to put in place criteria to identify voters and reduce loopholes for election fraud.
The White House official said contact tracing efforts had determined there were no close contacts among White House employees.
The official also suggested the mild symptoms experienced by the staffer were not unexpected and provided further proof vaccines are effective.
According to the CDC, COVID-19 vaccines only reduce the risk of people spreading the virus – contraction and transmission of the infection can still occur.
