Two hosts of The View tested positive for Covid-19 in the middle of the show with vice president Kamala Harris waiting backstage for a live interview.

Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro were asked to leave the show’s set live on-air as co-host Joy Behar was introducing Ms Harris.

“There seems to be something happening here that I’m not 100 per cent aware of,” Behar said after the show returned from a commercial break.

“Can someone please apprise me of the situation?”

Hostin and Navarro were asked to leave by an off-camera producer, and when Behar asked if she should continue to introduce the vice president, one voice shouted “yes” and another “no.”

“OK, since this is going to be a major news story any minute now, what happened is, Sunny and Ana both apparently tested positive for Covid,” Behar added.

“No matter how hard we try, these things happen, they probably have a breakthrough case. They’re both vaccinated up the wazoo!”

“I’ve been watching, like many of you, with heartache, with the videos of people who are in an ICU bed, who did not get vaccinated, pleading with their family members, ‘please get vaccinated,’” Ms Harris said.

And she added: “You know, when I think of it in the context of any one of us who have had these awful experiences of holding the hands of a loved one who is in an ICU bed, or is near death - like, don’t put your families through that. The vaccine is free. It is safe, and it will save your life. So folks just need to get vaccinated.”

“Before we go into the pandemic question that I have for you, I just want to say, I hope that you’re in a safe spot right now,” Joy Behar told the vice president as the now-remote interview finally began..

“We did everything we could to make sure you’re safe because we value you so much.”

After an interview, in which Ms Harris condemned Haitian migrants being rounded up by border patrol agents on horseback, Behar urged the vice president to come back on the show under normal circumstances.

“Please come back, we want you back,” Behar told Ms Harris.

“And I promise you, it’ll be different.”

The vice president said it was a positive fact that the fact the two hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, had been vaccinated.

“Sunny and Ana are strong women and I know they’re fine, but it really also does speak to the fact that they’re vaccinated and vaccines really make all the difference because otherwise we would be concerned about hospitalisation and worse,” she said.
