Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney to President Donald Trump, gave a positive result on COVID-19. This was announced by Trump himself on Sunday.
Giuliani was hospitalized at Georgetown University Hospital on Sunday, according to a CNN source from the Republican’s entourage. A few hours after Trump shared the news, Giuliani himself confirmed his positive diagnosis by tweeting that he was “getting all the help he needs and feeling good.
No additional information about his condition was provided, and it is not clear when Giuliani passed the test. He and his spokesman have not responded to CNN’s requests for comments.
A former mayor of New York traveled around the country, leading a long lawsuit by the president for the cancellation of the 2020 presidential election results. Giuliani has repeatedly ignored public health guidelines, appearing maskless in state capitals, hotel ballrooms and at closed press conferences in recent weeks. At many events, most people indoors also wore no masks.
At some of these events, Giuliani was spotted shaking hands, hugging and taking pictures with people without masks.
He was last seen at the Georgia Capitol in Atlanta on Thursday to attend the Georgia State Senate hearing on the November elections.
