Trump rally: Two people who attended North Carolina event test positive for coronavirus

Two people at one of Donald Trump’s campaign rallies in North Carolina have tested positive for Covid-19.

The Gaston County health department announced that the two cases were believed to be independent and not an indication of a spread at the rally held on 21 October, according to The Charlotte Observer.

The announcement on Thursday comes as North Carolina recorded 2,232 new cases to bring the state’s total to more than 267,000, with 4,275 related deaths since the pandemic began.  

The rally brought an estimated 15,000 to the president’s rally on the tarmac of a North Carolina airfield.

“Because of the large number of potential contacts from the rally, and the inability to alert them directly, the community is being notified so they can assess their own risk and take appropriate actions,” the county said in a statement.
