Rudy Giuliani Has Tested Positive for COVID-19, Trump Says

United States President Donald Trump’s personal and campaign attorney Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for COVID-19, Trump announced on Dec. 6.

United States President Donald Trump’s personal and campaign attorney Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for COVID-19, Trump announced on Dec. 6.

“Rudy Giuliani, by far the greatest mayor in the history of NYC, and who has been working tirelessly exposing the most corrupt election (by far!) in the history of the USA, has tested positive for the China Virus. Get better soon, Rudy, we will carry on!” Trump stated in a tweet without further details on Giuliani’s condition, including when he received the COVID-19 positive test result.

Media reports have said that the 76-year-old former New York City mayor has been admitted to the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington DC, citing sources on the matter.

Giuliani has spent the last month traveling to several states to lead the lawsuits in Trump’s attempt to overturn his defeat at the presidential elections held last Nov. 3. 

Giuliani has often appeared in public without a mask and most of the indoor events he attended had people without masks as well. Furthermore, he has repeatedly been in close contact with others who tested positive for COVID-19, including his son, Andrew, who works at the White House.

Giuliani becomes the latest White House official to have contracted the virus. At least 40 people in the White House have tested positive, including Trump himself last October.

Giuliani has not immediately made a public comment, but his son tweeted that Rudy is “resting, getting great care, and feeling well.”
