11 Positive Coronavirus Cases Surround The Last Presidential Debate


At the first presidential debate, President Donald Trump boasted about his campaign’s large crowd turnouts. He teased Joe Biden about wearing a mask everywhere he went, and said he’d never be able to attract the large turnouts at his rallies. Less than a week after this all took place, Donald Trump and First Lady Melania have tested positive for COVID-19.

According to city and clinic officials, about 11 positive coronavirus cases can be traced back to this past week’s presidential debate.

Cleveland Clinic oversaw the COVID-19 protocols for the debate. They released the following statement in regards to if their guests were exposed to the buried or not."Based on what we know about the virus and the safety measures we had in place, we believe there is low risk of exposure to our guests,".

The city looks to those who were responsible for organizing the debate as potential culprits. They also clarified that the 11 people who had tested positive for coronavirus, never accessed the debate hall. These people range from media personnel, to those responsible for laying out the logistics of the event. Per regulation, you were not allowed to access the debate hall until you received a negative test result.

Ohio House Minority Leader Emilia Sykes attended the debate, and is now in self isolation after learning she tested positive for the virus. Sykes said in a statement that she personally witnessed Cleveland clinic doctors offer masks to attendees who were not wearing them. They refused.

Images from inside the debate hall show that very few people associated with the Trump campaign wore masks at the event, including Trump’s family. This was supported by Kristin Urquiza, a guest of the Biden campaign who has experienced personal loss due to Covid-19. She told MSNBC that not a single person on Trump’s side wore a mask. Urquiza was disturbed at the sight of the first family not wearing masks, and expected some regulation to be enforced.

As of Friday, the President is said to be doing “very well” only experiencing mild symptoms. He has been transported to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
