Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence have both tested negative for the CCP virus, the White House announced on Saturday evening.
The Epoch Times refers to the novel coronavirus, which causes the disease COVID-19, as the CCP virus because the Chinese Communist Partys coverup and mismanagement allowed the virus to spread throughout China and create a global pandemic.
“Pleased to report that the COVID-19 test results came back negative for both Vice President @Mike_Pence and Second Lady @KarenPence,” Katie Miller, the press secretary for the vice president, said on Twitter.

The vice president and the second lady said they would be tested on Saturday afternoon because a member of his staff earlier tested positive for the virus.
The Vice President, who heads the White House COVID-19 task force, told reporters that the staff member was last at the White House on Monday but didnt come into direct contact with him or President Donald Trump. Pence added that the affected individual had “mild cold symptoms,” but “hes doing well.”
Pence said that while there was a priority to give tests to people with symptoms, he would take one due to his strategic role as chief of the task force. He said that neither himself or President Donald Trump had any direct contact with the staffer. Health authorities have traced the mans contacts.
