In an ABSOLUTELY not clickbait article published by The Week, VP Mike Pence, who has been appointed the head of the White House task force responsible for coming up with a strategy to combat the coronavirus, might have been exposed to the virus himself.
So here it goes.
Last week, VP Pence met with students of the Sarasota Military Academy in Florida, where he shook the hands of several students. Since then, a student has been put into quarantine because his mother had been exposed to someone who has been confirmed to have the virus.
The Sarasota Military Academy made a Facebook post about the quarantined student and mother on Monday, saying both of them "currently are not showing any symptoms" and promising it would disinfect the school. The school's maintenance team had also disinfected the school prior to the VP's visit, as is standard practice during flu season.
The school assured the Herald-Tribune that the student hadn't met Pence last week. "We have been in touch with the Pentagon, so we assured them that particular cadet was not present for that occasion," the school's executive director Col. Christina Bowman said. That said, two people in Florida have tested positive for the virus so it's only a matter of time before the world ends.
