Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris are set to take the debate stage Wednesday night. 

This comes a week after President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden faced off in a debate that was filled with yelling and arguing between the two candidates. 

This also comes as an outbreak of the coronavirus has sent White House staffers reeling as senior aides and the president himself test positive.

Vice President Mike Pence himself was in contact with some of the people who have since tested positive for the virus.

RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, Hope Hicks, President Donald Trump, Melania Trump, Notre Dame president John Jenkins, Kellyanne Conway, senior aide Stephen Miller, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, Chris Christie, Senators Mike Lee, Thom Tillis and Ron Johnson as well as Trump’s bodyguard Nick Luna have all tested positive.

However, Pence has tested negative for the virus up to the debate. And in order to protect both candidates, plexiglass dividers have been installed. 

Dr. Dan Fagbuyi, biotech expert and ER physician known to his patients as Dr. Dan, joined TheStreet to talk about his thoughts on the protective measures taken ahead of the debate.
