Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, a high-profile ally of President Donald Trump, has contracted the coronavirus, according to reports.
Gaetz told Politico that he “tested positive for antibodies. I have no live virus.”
The diagnosis comes during a second outbreak of the virus among Republican circles. Earlier this week, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows tested positive for the virus. At least five other staffers have also tested postive, KABC reported.
Trump, first lady Melania Trump and more than two dozen others tested positive in October after attending a large, outdoor gathering announcing the nomination of Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
