Washington:

Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris told Republicans it was “reckless” to hold the Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Monday amid a pandemic, particularly given the recent Covid-19 outbreak that has affected three US Senators.

“That hearing brought more than 50 people together to sit in an enclosed space for hours while our nation is exposed to a deadly airborne virus,” Harris, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, videolinked the hearing.

“The decision to hold this hearing now is a ruthless decision and puts the facility’s staff, janitorial staff, congressional assistants and the Capitol Police at risk,” added the 55-year-old Senator.
