After Kamala Harris contracts COVID, can White House protect Biden?

Vice President Kamala Harris’ positive test was a stark reminder that the circle of those infected in closing tighter around President Joe Biden.

  • “He is vaccinated and boosted. He is very well protected,” COVID-19 response coordinator Ashish Jha said
  • Harris is not exhibiting any symptoms and has not been in close contact with Biden.
  • The White House acknowledged the potential for exposure for Biden, who at age 79 faces greater health risks.

WASHINGTON – The White House sought Tuesday to prepare Americans for the possibility that President Joe Biden could contract COVID-19 after Vice President Kamala Harris became the latest White House official to test positive for the virus.

Harris’ positive test was a stark reminder that the circle of those infected in closing tighter around Biden, who has been vaccinated and received two booster shots. Biden is tested regularly – his most recent test, administered Monday, was negative – and administration officials stress that extra steps are taken to protect him.
