The news is out: [Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was hospitalized Saturday after testing positive for COVID-19, the latest Trump administration insider to come down with the virus.
Christie told CNN he drove himself to a hospital in the Garden State after coming down with a fever and experiencing flu-like aches and pains.
“While I am feeling good and only have mild symptoms, due to my history of asthma we decided this is an important precautionary measure,” Christie wrote on Twitter.
Christie, 58, is seriously overweight and suffers from asthma, both of which are conditions that contribute to bad outcomes with coronavirus patients.
Christie said he has been treated with remdesivir, a promising therapeutic that may speed up the recovery from COVID-19.]
