The American senator Ted Cruz has put himself in quarantine after having been in contact with a political conference ten days ago with someone later diagnosed with the new corona virus. The Republican has announced this on Twitter.

Cruz has no symptoms associated with the COVID-19 disease and he says he feels good.

“Since the meeting was ten days ago, the incubation period was five to six days, it was a short interaction and I have no symptoms of disease, the doctors told me that there is little chance that I am infected.”

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were also present at the conference in question. They said they had no contact with the infected person.

According to Cruz, the doctors see no danger to him or people with whom he has had contact in the past period.

“To be on the safe side, especially since I often meet with voters, I stay at home until fourteen days have passed since the conference where the meeting took place,” said the Texas senator.
