COVID-19 is Partisan: Targeting Trump White House, Capitol Hill Republicans

Considering how adamant the left is when it comes to contact tracing, the fact that identities of these infected journalists are being kept secret defies protocols, especially the common courtesy of informing those whom they had contact with before and since.

Then again, since when are rules for Trump-hating journalists enforced nowadays?
