The White House Press Secretary Psaki confirmed on July 20 that a fully vaccinated White House official tested positive for the new crown on the 19th.

He has no close contact with President Biden, has mild symptoms, and is waiting for the review result of the nucleic acid test.

  At the White House press conference held on the same day, Psaki also admitted that “breakthrough infection cases” (that is, infected persons who have completed vaccination) have appeared among White House staff.

She reiterated that the White House will, in accordance with the relevant information disclosure agreement, promptly inform the public once a high-level official confirms the diagnosis.

  Psaki did not disclose the number of "breakthrough infection cases" and specific information.
