Rand Paul Says He's Volunteering At a Local Hospital After Testing Negative For COVID-19


More than two weeks after Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul was himself diagnosed with the coronavirus, the physician/lawmaker now says he has tested negative and has begun volunteering a local hospital to care for patients including those suffering from COVID-19.

“I appreciate all the best wishes I have received,” Paul wrote in a tweet Tuesday. “I have been retested and I am negative. I have started volunteering at a local hospital to assist those in my community who are in need of medical help, including Coronavirus patients. Together we will overcome this!”

Paul was diagnosed with the coronavirus in mid-March, the only member of the U.S. Senate so far to have tested positive for the Wuhan-based disease.
