U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra announced another breakthrough case of COVID-19 on Monday (June 13), testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 the second time in less than a month.
Becerra, 64, is triple-vaccinated against COVID-19.
“This morning in Sacramento, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra tested positive for COVID-19 after taking an antigen test. He is fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms,” the agency said in a statement.
Becerra previously tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 on May 18 during a trip to Germany for a G-7 health summit.
