Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, a Florida Republican, becomes the first member of Congress with the coronavirus. Diaz-Balart announced the news on Twitter, saying he tested positive. He advised people to follow the CDC guidelines to avoid getting sick and prevent the virus from spreading. Diaz-Balart said: “We must continue to work together to emerge stronger as a country during these trying times.” The congressman then decided to stay in Washington, D.C. and not return to South Florida because of his wife's pre-existing conditions.
