U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert Test Positive on Covid-19


U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert Positive Covid-19:


Texas Republican Representative Louis Goharmt, who often refuses to wear a mask, has tested positive for the coronavirus.


The news resurfaced across Capitol Hill on Wednesday, prompting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to announce the necessary new rules for masks on the House floor and to reconsider the debate over access to exams for members of Congress and their staff.


The diagnosis was also made because congressional leaders on both sides were far from discussing a stimulus package to respond to the Kovid-1p epidemic.


Louie Gohmert was scheduled to travel with President Donald Trump on Wednesday in the Midlands, Texas, on a one-on-one fight. Gourmet tested positive for the coronavirus during a pre-flight screening at the White House on Wednesday morning.


The test results had caused problems in the highlands where "a lot of workers" had instructed them to go to meetings and take the test before resuming activities.


No one is showering affluence in their office until they are tested. Louie Gohmert's office informed Republican leaders, who briefed House House medical staff and protocols, for further notice, the GOP aide said.


Louie Gohmert issued a video statement on Twitter, saying "the news of my death was long overdue" and that he was unhappy.


He said, "I don't have any of the symptoms listed as part of Kovid-9, but I do have the Uhan virus,".


“I wouldn’t be surprised if I put on a mask and put it on if I could put some germs or viruses on top of the mask and breathe in it,” Goharmt said.He added that he wore more masks in the last two weeks than in the last three-four months.


“I can’t help but think that if I hadn’t worn the mask in the last 10 days or so, I would have wondered if I could have achieved it,” Goharmt added.


Wrongly wearing a mask, touching it and adjusting publicly can come in contact with the virus. Face masks are most effective when masks do not touch their face or turn it over when using the mask.


However, Louie Gohmert claims that how he was infected in such a situation is "probably" suspicious, as experts say the virus spreads primarily during person-to-person contact.



He said the virus does not change his view of wearing a mask, but now that he has it, he will come in contact with someone else if he can "religiously wear a mask".



“I won’t be with anyone for the next 10 days without making sure I have a mask,” Goharmt said. "Because that's the real danger. Once you get it, it's given to someone else, and that's when the mask is most important."


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that anyone tested positive for the virus should be avoided altogether, if possible, for 10 days if they do not have symptoms and otherwise for at least 24 hours until their symptoms go away.


Louie Gohmert, who has no symptoms, said he would stay away for 10 days if he complied with the guidelines.
