A Statement by Buffalo, New York-area Democratic Congressman Brian Higgins, in Response to the U.S. President & First Lady Contracting COVID-19
Posted October 2nd, 2020 on Niagara At Large
Buffalo, New York – “News that the President and First Lady have tested positive for COVID-19 is an urgent reminder that everyone is vulnerable to this disease. While we wish the first couple a speedy recovery, these results should be a wake-up call to the Administration and an urgent reminder that we all must take this virus seriously.
“The President is the Commander in Chief of our armed forces at home and around the world. That his actions and those in his inner circle could have made such a transmission event possible should be a cause for concern to our national security.”
“Wearing a mask, adhering to social distancing guidelines, and following the advice of medical experts and scientists is not political; its common sense and lifesaving.
“Last night the House approved the updated Heroes Act, legislation based primarily on many of the bipartisan provisions included in the CARES Act, which provides relief to communities, families and businesses and invests $75 billion in the expansion of coronavirus testing and contract tracing capabilities. The Senate should approve this bill without delay.”
