Democratic state leaders in Pennsylvania are accusing GOP counterparts of endangering everyone at the statehouse after a representative, who'd attended meetings, announced he tested positive for the coronavirus.

Rep. Andrew Lewis, who represents Dauphin County, revealed on Wednesday he tested positive for COVID-19 on May 20 after he experienced flu-like symptoms two days earlier.


The Pennsylvania state Democrats said they and some Republicans were not informed about Lewis's diagnosis until recently, and they're accusing the house GOP of covering up his condition.

"If he truly cared about the well-being of those he may have exposed, he should have been transparent from day one," Pennsylvania Democratic Party spokesman Brendan Welch said in a statement.
