December 22 – U.S. media found on the 21st that U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo, who had previously been in contact with coronavirus positive patients, suddenly appeared in his office, and his quarantine period was less than a week.
According to ABC, two U.S. State Department officials revealed that Pompeo appeared in his office on the 21st local time.
Because Pompeo has not been quarantined for a week, this move may violate the epidemic prevention regulations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Pompeo was previously quarantined on the 16th because of contact with coronavirus-positive patients.
It is not clear how often Pompeo will be tested for the novel coronavirus. U.S. media said that the U.S. State Department has refused to reply to relevant issues since last week.
