On Tuesday afternoon local time, Ted Bad, a Republican congressman from North Carolina, announced on social media that he had been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus and is currently suffering from mild symptoms. This is the second case of infection among members of Congress this week.
On Monday local time, Republican Congressman Austin Scott’s office confirmed that Scott had tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Several members of the U.S. Congress have been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus.
Despite the relevant epidemic prevention measures taken by Congress, members of Congress have just returned to Washington from all over the United States, so there is still a greater risk of infection within Congress.
