US Vice President Kamala Harris will return to work today after testing negative for coronavirus.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Ms Harris said: “Today the Vice President tested negative for COVID-19 on a rapid antigen test.”

Ms Harris’ office has said the US politician will follow guidelines and wear a well-fitted mask while around others for a period of 10 days.

It comes a week after the vice president’s press secretary confirmed that Ms Harris had tested positive for COVID-19 and would isolate while continuing to work.

The White House said neither US President Joe Biden nor first lady Jill Biden were considered a “close contact” of Ms Harris in the days before she tested positive.

 

Coronavirus cases rise in California by 30%

 

California has seen a 30% increase in coronavirus cases in the past week, according to data gathered by the Los Angeles Times.

Fears are mounting that the city could see a new wave of infections after the state recorded about 5,600 coronavirus cases a day over the last week – the highest rate since March.

Dr Curtis Chan, deputy health officer for San Mateo County, told the Los Angeles Times that while he expected the number of patients being admitted to hospital to rise, he did not expect the figures to be as high as last year.

He said: “We’re expecting a small surge that may mirror something that we saw in Delta last summer, in early July, but it’s happening now, in May.”

Meanwhile, Marin County’s health officer, Dr Matt Willis, told the paper: “The virus is definitely flowing. People need to know the likelihood of an exposure in the community is increasing.”
