GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has been tested for coronavirus after experiencing flu-like symptoms. The test results are not back yet.
RNC Communications director tweeted:
Last night, Chairwoman McDaniel began experiencing a fever and flu-like symptoms, and she went to her local hospital in Michigan for treatment.
Flu and strep tests were administered and came back negative.
Her doctor determined a test for COVID-19 was necessary given her symptoms.
Some critics complained over the availability of testing for McDaniel.
Kinda weird that a test was available for her immediately but literally thousands of Americans are still going without.
