January 15th – Congressman Adriano Espaillat, a Democrat from New York, announced on social media that he had tested positive for the novel coronavirus and was currently quarantined at home.
Just a day ago, Esprat participated in the debate on the impeachment clause of the President of the United States.
Combining CNN, The New York Times and other media sources, Esprat, 66, tweeted: “I am following the guidance of my doctor and quarantine at home after testing positive for COVID-19.” He also said that he had been vaccinated against the second Pfizer coronavirus last week, and said he understood that it would take some time for the vaccine to fully work.
On the 13th local time, Esprat wore a mask to participate in the debate on Trump’s impeachment clause in the House of Representatives.
Its office has not immediately responded to requests for comment.
At present, the two coronavirus vaccines authorized for emergency use in the United States are Pfizer vaccine and Modena vaccine.
However, the U.S. media pointed out that these two vaccines have not yet been proven to prevent infection with the novel coronavirus, but have been proven to prevent the symptoms of infection and serious diseases.
