82-Year-Old Nancy Pelosi Infected With COVID

Posted April 7, 2022 by with 0 comments

Now that all mitigation measures have been lifted nationwide (no masks, no social distancing) and the highly transmissible Omicron variant is the dominant strain, the next wave in COVID infections is taking shape. Most people are vaccinated and/or have already been infected, so deaths shouldn’t be as high as they’ve been in previous surges. Nancy Pelosi is the latest high profile person to test positive, but she says she’s currently asymptomatic:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tested positive for Covid-19, a spokesman for the California Democrat said Thursday. “

After testing negative this week, Speaker Pelosi received a positive test result for COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic,” Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill tweeted. “The Speaker is fully vaccinated and boosted, and is thankful for the robust protection the vaccine has provided.”

Pelosi, the top House Democrat, is 82 years old. As speaker of the House, Pelosi is second in the line of presidential succession behind the vice president.

Hammill announced Pelosi’s positive test result just before Pelosi was scheduled to have her weekly news conference with reporters, which was canceled. He also said a planned congressional delegation to Asia, to be led by Pelosi over the two-week congressional break, “will be postponed to a later date.”
