These congressmen, including Texas Senator Ted Cruz, shook hands with an infected person at a party conference.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who also attended the conference at the end of February, but had no direct contact with this person, insists that he feels good and does not need testing.

Voluntary quarantine was also announced by a member of the House of Representatives of the Democratic Party, who met with a person who has become infected with the virus.

Ted Cruz, Arizona congressman Paul Gozar, Georgia congressman Doug Collins and Florida congressman Matt Getz volunteered to go through quarantine for 14 days. They all had contact with the same participant in the CPAC Republican Conference of Conservative Forces held in Maryland at the end of February.

Earlier, Vice President Mike Pence issued a warning that the number of new infections in the United States will increase. He confirmed that he had not requested a virus test and said that the administration was consulting with Congress on the introduction of paid sick leave.
