“I am disclosing today’s positive test out of an abundance of transparency,” Psaki said in Sunday’s press release. “I last saw the President on Tuesday, when we sat outside more than six-feet apart, and wore masks.”
Some estimates have suggested that as many as half of Americans have been sick with the coronavirus since the disease reached US shores. The virus is seriously dangerous to older Americans and the immunocompromised, and it’s very likely that Psaki will make a full recovery. Psaki indicated that her contact with President Biden was socially distanced, leading her to believe she wouldn’t have infected Biden with the disease.
Psaki had recieved two shots of the coronavirus vaccine. Scientific consensus generally indicates that the vaccines are effective in preventing coronavirus infections from resulting in hospitalization and death, but they’re less effective in preventing the actual spread and transmission of the disease.
The Trump White House incurred an outbreak of the coronavirus, with the corporate media largely alleging that Trump and his staff were responsible. They’re yet to pin blame for a coronavirus outbreak in Biden’s administration on those who have gotten sick, despite similar circumstances.
Psaki’s quite misleading and a political spin artist as the White House Press Secretary, but she is someone with a family and fortunately it’s almost a certainty she’ll make a full recovery.
