Pence spokeswoman Katie Miller said that she has returned to work after recovering from the CCP virus.

“Back at work today after three NEGATIVE COVID tests. Thank you to all my amazing doctors and everyone who reached out with support. I couldn’t have done it without my amazing husband who took great care of his pregnant wife. #TransitionToGreatness,” Miller wrote on Twitter Tuesday, also announcing that she is pregnant.

On May 8, Miller tested positive for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, the novel coronavirus that causes the COVID-19 disease, President Donald Trump confirmed, according to ABC News. Miller is one of two people actively working in the White House who have been infected by the virus.

According to USA Today, she tested positive for the CCP virus shortly before Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Iowa to help promote efforts to reopen the economy.

Miller said at the time that she was doing ok and thanked everyone for the supportive messages and well wishes. She did not say how ill she became after testing positive.

“Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. I’m doing well and look forward to getting back to work for the American people,” the tweet read.

After she tested positive, several officials who were working in close proximity went into self isolation as a precaution, according to The Star. Pence also kept his distance from President Donald Trump.

All White House aides are being tested for the CCP virus daily.

The White House has not reported any additional official being infected by the virus, according to The Star.

Miller’s husband, Stephen Miller, is a senior adviser to the president.

Sinai Health reported that pregnant women are not necessarily more likely to become infected by the virus compared to the general population, according to information currently available.
