U.S. lawmake, Pramila Jayapal has tested positive for COVID-19 after Capitol siege.

Jayapal, 55, lambasted Republicans late on Monday and said many of them not only refused to wear a mask while stuck in the room for several hours but also mocked colleagues and staff when offered one.

“Too many Republicans have refused to take this pandemic and virus seriously, and in doing so, they endanger everyone around them,” she said in a statement.

Jayapal, the second Democratic member of the U.S. Congress, testing positive after Trump’s supporters invaded the Capitol last Wednesday, said she would work in isolation, in accordance with the Capitol doctor’s advice.
