An attendee at the 2020 Conservative Political Action Conference has tested positive for the coroanavirus.
The American Conservative Union announced that one person at the event last month where President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence made speeches was diagnosed with the deadly virus.
The group insisted the patient had no contact with either Trump or Pence at the conservative gathering in National Harbor, Maryland.
In a statement they said: ‘The American Conservative Union has learned that one of our CPAC attendees has unfortunately tested positive today for coronavirus. The exposure occurred previous to the conference.
‘A New Jersey hospital tested the person, and CDC confirmed the positive result.
‘The individual is under the care of medical professionals in the state of New Jersey, and has been quarantined.’
