After the raid by Donald Trump supporters on the Congress building in Washington DC, the capital of the USA, 3 representatives announced that they were caught in Covid-19.
Pramila Jayapal, Bonnie Watson Coleman and Brad Schnieder, representatives at the Congress, announced that they caught Covid-19 after the raid.
Stating that he stayed in a closed area for hours with other Congress members due to the raid, Schnieder explained that the Covid-19 test he had done today was positive.
“Unfortunately, I got a positive Covid-19 test this morning, after being tested yesterday. “Last Wednesday, after narrowly escaping a violent crowd at the Capitol provoked by the US President, I had to spend a few hours in a safe but closed place with dozens of Congressmen.”
Democrat Schneider stated that several Republicans ‘stubbornly refused to wear masks’ in the area where they were kept closed.
Pramila Jayapal, one of the representatives at the Congress, announced on Twitter that the Covid-19 test was positive. Jayapal used the following statements in his post:
“My Covid-19 test result was positive after being locked in a safe room, where several Republicans not only refused to wear masks but also mocked colleagues and staff on duty who demanded them to wear masks.”
Bonnie Watson Coleman, another name who shared that he was caught in Covid-19, used the following statements:
“I decided to have a Kovid test because of my colleagues who refused to wear a mask in the asylum area during the events on Wednesday. The result was positive.”
Brad Schnieder shared the following on Twitter: “Unfortunately, after getting the test yesterday on the doctor’s recommendation, my Covid-19 test was positive this morning.”
