The news of Pelosi’s situation was reported a short time ago on major news networks. CNN stated the following: “After testing negative this week, Speaker Pelosi received a positive test result for COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic,” Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill tweeted. “The Speaker is fully vaccinated and boosted, and is thankful for the robust protection the vaccine has provided.”
Pelosi, the top House Democrat, is 82 years old. As speaker of the House, Pelosi is second in the line of presidential succession behind the vice president.
Hammill announced Pelosi’s positive test result just before Pelosi was scheduled to have her weekly news conference with reporters, which was canceled. He also said a planned congressional delegation to Asia, to be led by Pelosi over the two-week congressional break, “will be postponed to a later date.”
It remains unclear, at the time of this published article, what President Joe Biden has taken tests or precautions to assess the situation regarding his own personal health.
