Rep. Diaz-Balart Becomes 1st Member Of Congress To Announce Positive COVID-19 Test

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart says he has tested positive for COVID-19, becoming the first member of Congress to announce he has contracted the novel coronavirus.

Diaz-Balart, 58, voted on the House floor as recently as early Saturday morning, when lawmakers passed a coronavirus relief package.

Diaz-Balart, a Republican who represents Florida's 25th Congressional District, which includes Miami-Dade County, said in a statement that on Saturday evening he developed symptoms, including a fever and a headache.


Still think it's a hoax, Trump?

1. Everybody I talked to on the phone today

 

at my business thinks it is either a hoax or we’re overreacting. They will call it whatever they need to to serve their agenda.

5. I hope we're overreacting. It's a damned sight better than under-reacting.

 

Because of Trump's failure to act, we're flying blind. The only reasonable option is to assume the worst.

3. "Still think it's a hoax, Trump?"

 

Oh, no! He knew it was a pandemic before it ever left Asia! Remember, the doctors just couldn't understand how he knew SO much about all of this.

There's not enough time in a 30-second ad to list all of his lies just about the COVID-19!
