Herman Cain is hospitalized with coronavirus
Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain is hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19.
The 74-year-old found out Monday that he had coronavirus and by Wednesday “had developed symptoms serious enough that he required hospitalization,” a statement on his Twitter account said.
“Mr. Cain did not require a respirator, and he is awake and alert.”
Cain, a cancer survivor, attended a highly publicized Trump political rally last month in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
In photo posted to his Twitter account, he was shown not wearing a mask and not social distancing in the crowd of thousands.
“There is no way of knowing for sure how or where Mr. Cain contracted the coronavirus, but we do know he is a fighter who has beaten Stage 4 cancer,” the statement said.
