Washington Post: Nearly a sixth of the Senate Republican caucus has tested positive for coronavirus

Washington Post: Nearly a sixth of the Senate Republican caucus has tested positive for coronavirus. “Since the novel coronavirus emerged in the United States, more than 12.5 million Americans have been confirmed to have been infected by it. The actual number is unquestionably far higher than that, given the slow rollout of effective testing for the virus. But even by itself, that number constitutes nearly 4 percent of the population. In the Senate, the rate of infections is even higher. As of writing, eight senators have tested positive for the virus, according to data compiled by GovTrack. That’s an 8 percent rate of positive tests, more than twice the national measure.”
