Attorney General Barr Attended 'Super-Spreader' WH Event, But Won't Self-Quarantine

US Attorney General William Barr was potentially exposed to the novel coronavirus at a White House reception where attendees didn't wear masks.

However, Business Insider reports Barr has refused to self-quarantine.

The September 26 reception for Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett has since been identified as a possible superspreader event.

That designation came after several Republican lawmakers and White House associates announced they had tested positive for coronavirus.

America's coronavirus deaths could surpass 511,000 by the end of February. According to Business Insider, the staggering number comes from a new University of Washington model. The model also found that nearly 130,000 of those lives could be saved if 95% of Americans wore masks. The problem officials found is that only 60% of Americans say they always wear a mask in public.
