Katie Waldman Coronavirus
On May 8, 2020 Katie tested positive of coronavirus, making her the second person who works at the White House complex known to test positive for the virus this week. She had tested negative, a day before her positive result.
Her diagnosis was revealed by President Donald Trump during a meeting with White House reporters. He said, “She’s a wonderful young woman, Katie, she tested very good for a long period of time, then all of a sudden today she tested positive. She hasn’t come into contact with me. She’s spent some time with the vice president. He went on to again bash COVID-19 testing procedures, as he did when his valet was diagnosed on May 7.
So she tested positive out of the blue. This is why the whole concept of tests aren’t necessarily great. The tests are perfect but something could happen between a test where it’s good and then something happens and all of a sudden. She was tested very recently and tested negative and then today I guess for some reason, she tested positive. Mike [Pence] knows about it and Mike has done what he has to do.”
