"Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests. She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence," said Allen's announcement.

"The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative," the statement said. She added that the Vice President "has not been a close contact with the president or first lady due to their respective recent travel schedules."

According to the data collected by the  US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the U.S., the new case records have registered 44 416 infected people per day, with 1 629 hospitalizations and 314 deaths reported daily.

Tuesday afternoon, the U.S. President, Joe Biden held a phone conversation with Harris to check in with the vice president and ensure that she had what is needed at her house for the quarantine time, said the White House in a report.

Referring to the possibilities of the President's potential fallout, the White House communications director Kate Bedingfield has said that "it is certainly possible that he will test positive for Covid, and he is vaccinated, he is boosted and protected from the most severe strains of the virus."
