Sen. Rand Paul Tests Positive For COVID-19 After Delaying Aid For Coronavirus Victims
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who delayed coronavirus aid to tens of thousands of victims, has announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus.
The announcement was made on Paul’s Twitter page:
He expects to be back in the Senate after his quarantine period ends and will continue to work for the people of Kentucky at this difficult time. Ten days ago, our D.C. office began operating remotely, hence virtually no staff has had contact with Senator Rand Paul.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) March 22, 2020
Paul — who is “pro-life” — was the only senator to vote against a bipartisan $8 billion deal to provide emergency coronavirus funding earlier this month.
