U.S. Senator and U.S. Congressman Under Self Quarantine #Coronavirus #COVID-19

As the world closely watches the spread of the coronavirus, many are taking precautions — including Senator Ted Cruz. He recently took to Twitter on Sunday to reveal that he recently shook hands with someone at CPAC who had tested positive for COVID-19.

Cruz said that the individual was showing symptoms and his interaction with the person consisted of a “brief conversation and a handshake”.

He has consulted with medical professionals in Houston and said, “I’m not experiencing any symptoms, and I feel fine and healthy. Given that the interaction was 10 days ago, that the average incubation period is 5-6 days, that the interaction was for less than a minute, and that I have no current symptoms, the medical authorities have advised me that the odds of transmission from the other individual to me were extremely low.”
