A Democratic Congresswoman claims she has coronavirus just days after she was with Nancy Pelosi and others:
FOX NEWS – Rep. Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y., said Monday that she has been diagnosed “with presumed coronavirus infection” but added that her symptoms so far have been mild.
“In the wee hours of Sunday morning, I began to feel under the weather,” Velazquez said in a statement. “I developed the abrupt onset of muscle aches, fevers, nasal congestion and stomach upset. I noticed that I could no longer smell my perfume or taste my food. After speaking with The Attending Physician by phone, I was diagnosed with presumed coronavirus infection.”
Velazquez was not administered a test for COVID-19 but said she was resting at home and monitoring her symptoms.
Assuming her doctor knows what they are doing, this doesn’t sound good.
Not only was Velazquez with Pelosi, but she was with other high ranking Democrats and Republicans as well as on the House floor:

What’s bad for some, like Pelosi, is that they are older and more at risk if they contract the virus. I would assume there’s going to be some testing going on soon on Capitol Hill.
