It was reported that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director William Burns was officially confirmed positive for CCP virus last Thursday after receiving three doses of the CCP virus vaccine and having mild symptoms. The day before the diagnosis, he attended a meeting with President Biden, the official statement emphasized that “the meeting was held at a social distance and wore an N95 mask”, President Biden was not considered as close contact as defined by CDC guidance.
In addition to the Director of Central Intelligence, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and Deputy Secretary Karin Pierre were successively tested positive for the CCP virus. Before the diagnosis, they maintained a social distance from the meeting with President Biden, so President Biden is not a close contact category. According to foreign media, White House Deputy Press Secretary Karin Pierre previously planned to visit Belgium and Poland with President Biden but couldn’t travel together after being diagnosed.
Currently President Biden got his fourth dose of the vaccine last week after the U.S. approved it and has publicly urged for sufficient fourth dose of the CCP virus vaccine available.
