An Iowan meat packing plant confirms that over 1,000 of its workers have tested positive for Covid-19, three of which have died.

"WASHINGTON — An aide to Vice President Mike Pence has tested positive for coronavirus, a senior administration official confirmed to NBC News on Friday.
The confirmation comes a day after news broke that President Donald Trump’s personal valet had also tested positive.
A spokeswoman for Pence did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
Pence was scheduled to travel to Des Moines, Iowa, in the morning, but his departure from Andrews Air Force Base was delayed by nearly an hour as staff dealt with news of the diagnosis. Reporters traveling with Pence said several staffers disembarked from Air Force Two just before takeoff.
As of Friday, more than 75,000 Americans have died of Covid-19, and more than 1.2 million have tested positive."
