And announced the “Sarasota” Military Academy in Florida, southeastern United States, in a statement that one of her students and his mother have been quarantined starting yesterday, Monday, against the background of their infection with the Coronavirus, according to the American weekly “Newsweek”.
She added that the student’s diagnosis of the virus came days after contact with members of the Pentagon who were accompanied by the Vice President on a visit he made a few days ago to the academy.
She also indicated that the student “did not show any symptoms after he was infected with Corona,” and he was present at school during Pence’s visit. Still, he did not shake hands with him like other colleagues.
