Chris Christie Checks Himself Into Hospital in New Jersey With Mild Symptoms

Chris Christie has gone to the hospital with mild symptoms after testing positive for the coronavirus. He said:

“In consultation with my doctors, I checked myself into Morristown Medical Center this afternoon.

While I am feeling good and only have mild symptoms, due to my history of asthma we decided this is an important precautionary measure.”

“I am thankful for our hardworking medical professionals and look forward to coming home soon,” he added.

Chris said this earlier when he got his test results, “I just received word that I am positive for COVID-19. I want to thank all of my friends and colleagues who have reached out to ask how I was feeling in the last day or two”

“I will be receiving medical attention today and will keep the necessary folks apprised of my condition.”

From Fox News:

White House physician Dr. Sean Conley and other members of the medical team briefed reporters on Trump’s condition. Conley said they were “extremely happy with the progress” Trump is making.

“This morning, the president is doing very well,” he said.

However, a senior administration official told Fox News that on Friday morning, Trump was showing troubling signs of a possible progression from mild to more severe form of the disease.

The official said that medical professionals moved quickly and decided to transfer the President to Walter Reed out of an abundance of caution over what was seen as a very concerning trajectory of disease progression.

“Twenty-four hours ago, there was real concern about the President’s vitals,” the official said. “For the past 12 hours, there has been zero concern.”

The official added: “Early indications are for an extremely good prognosis – but the next 48 hours will be critical.”
