COVID cases reported among attendees at White House Correspondent Association Dinner

COVID reported by attendees at White House Correspondent Association Dinner

by | May 4, 2022

Trevor Noah joked about the event becoming a superspreader and now the cases are rolling in. The annual White House Correspondents Dinner on April 30, along with the festivities held in the days before and after it, have led to the inevitable spread of Covid, reports CNN.

In the days since the event, reporters and staffers from CNN, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, Politico, and other participating news organizations have tested positive for the virus. Most notably, ABC’s Jon Karl, who shook hands with President Biden and who sat next to Kim Kardashian, has fallen ill.

There is no exact data to indicate precisely how many people have caught the virus from the weekend. But, anecdotally speaking, much of Tuesday afternoon following the event seemed to consist of attendees trading text messages and emails about colleagues and friends and people they had seen who had tested positive. That’s almost certainly going to continue in the days ahead, states CNN.

The WHCA dinner attracted approximately 2,500 people.

(In addition, Secretary of State Antony Blinken tested positive for Covid-19 Wednesday, according to the State Department, as did Steve Herman, chief national correspondent at Voice of America.)
