Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has been hospitalized after contracting coronavirus following a series of maskless meetings and gatherings.
The news of the attorney’s condition was initially announced by President Trump who took to Twitter to claim that “the greatest mayor in the history of NYC” contracted “China Virus.”
“@RudyGiuliani, 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,” Trump tweeted on Sunday afternoon.
“Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!”
The news was not confirmed by Giuliani himself until hours later on the same day when he responded to a well-wisher who called on fellow Americans to pray for the attorney.
“Will you pray with me tonight for Rudy America? The power of prayer in numbers is staggering! Lord please put your hedge of protection around Rudy Giuliani tonight. We know that you are a healing God! Please lift Rudy up & get him back quickly fighting for our Republic Oh Lord!” Matt Couch wrote, prompting Trump to retweet the message.
According to the reports, the 76-year-old attorney has been hospitalized at Washington DC’s Georgetown University Medical Center. As his son confirmed on Sunday night, Giuliani is in stable condition and on bedrest.
“My Dad is resting, getting great care and feeling well. Thank you to all the friends who have reached out concerned about his wellbeing,” Andrew Giuliani expressed.
Following the bombshell announcement, experts have shared their concerns that the attorney might have infected hundreds of other people with coronavirus due to his recent presence at many meetings and hearings during which social distancing was not observed and masks weren’t worn.
Among other controversial events, Giuliani was seen hugging people and taking photos with strangers – while not wearing a face mask – in Atlanta on Thursday.
“Giuliani has not just exposed himself and caught COVID, but he has potentially exposed hundreds and hundreds of Trump supporters to the virus,” Brown University’s emergency doctor, Dr.
Megan Ranney, warned in an interview with CNN.“His irresponsible actions have potentially put others at risk as well. ”
