November 12, US media reported on the 11th that the White House election night gathering caused another two infections. Up to now, a total of five participants have been diagnosed.
CNBC reported on the 11th that two people involved in the event were confirmed to have been infected with Coronavirus. One of them was White House Political Affairs Director Brian Jack, and the other was White House Adviser Healy Baumgardner.
Baum Gardner had previously participated in an event held in the East Room of the White House at the invitation of Trump’s personal lawyer Giuliani.
US President Trump held an election night party in the East Room of the White House on the evening of November 3, local time. US media reported that hundreds of people attended the meeting, but few of them wore masks. Sure enough, pandemic were frequently exposed in the following days. White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, and Trump campaign consultant David Bossi have been diagnosed.
US media said that it is unclear whether the gathering is a “super spread” event like the outbreak of the Supreme Court nomination ceremony. In addition, before the White House outbreak, at least 28 Trump administration and campaign officials were infected with Coronavirus in late September and early October. (Overseas Net Li Meng)
