White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has contracted the coronavirus. Bloomberg reports this citing sources.
As it became known, the official spoke about the illness on Tuesday, November 3, after the US presidential election. At the same time, it is not known exactly when Meadows became infected and whether he has any symptoms. According to sources, the chief of staff of the administration was seen at Trump campaign headquarters on the same day without a mask.
The White House itself did not comment on the situation.
It is noted that, despite the illness, Meadows continued to participate in challenging the vote in several states, where Donald Trump is inferior to former Vice President Joe Biden.
In October, US President Donald Trump, his wife Melania and son Barron were ill with the coronavirus. On October 11, the American leader announced that he had recovered from the infection and received immunity.
