According to the police statement, two of the responding officers had fallen ill by May 2nd and tested positive for COVID-19 later that day. The third officer present is reportedly under quarantine.

“The suspect who gave them this virus continues to roam the streets potentially infecting many other people in our community,” Culpeper Police Chief Chris Jenkins said.

While it is unclear where the suspect contracted the virus, as the COVID-19 pandemic has unfolded across the United States, issues surrounding border security and immigration have become increasingly linked to public health. Thousands of illegal aliens have been released onto American streets since the virus’ spread began, with officials citing concerns of large scale outbreaks in jails and immigration detention facilities.

On April 23rd, an Indian national who illegally entered the United States by way of Mexico was apprehended by Customs and Border Patrol agents and subsequently tested positive for the virus.
