Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, have tested negative for Covid-19, a White House official told CNN on Saturday morning. The Vice-President is tested every day for coronavirus and his result also came back negative yesterday. The last time Pence and Donald Trump came into close contact is believed to have been on Tuesday at the White House.
Pence is due to take part in Wednesday’s vice-presidential debate with Kamala Harris in Salt Lake City.
