Rand Paul says he has recovered from COVID-19 and is volunteering at a hospital
Wearing a smile, a beard and a doctor’s smock, Kentucky U.S. Sen Rand Paul posted on his Twitter page Tuesday that he no longer has the coronavirus and is volunteering at a Bowling Green hospital.
“I appreciate all the best wishes I have received. I have been retested and I am negative.,” Paul said. “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, a Bowling Green Republican and an ophthalmologist, announced March 22 that he tested positive for COVID-19.
His office said then he was asymptomatic and was tested out of an abundance of caution due to his extensive travel and event schedule.
It’s so great that he is volunteering his time to help!
