Vice President Mike Pence and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) were among the political leaders who attended the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference.


On Friday, AIPAC announced that two attendees had tested positive for COVID-19 coronavirus.

Israel ordered the self-quarantine of citizens who had attended the conference, but there are no such precautions in the United States.

Despite the coronavirus outbreak, AIPAC did not cancel the conference.

Here are some of the photos political leaders posted of them attending the conference or meeting with conference attendees:
