WASHINGTON, Jan 14 (Reuters) - U.S. Representative Adriano Espaillat on Thursday said he had tested positive for COVID-19, becoming the fourth member of Congress to announce they had contracted the novel coronavirus following a mob attack on the U.S. Capitol last week.

“I am following guidance from my physician and quarantining at home after having tested positive for COVID-19,” he wrote on Twitter.
