Rand Paul Recovers From Coronavirus; Volunteering At Local Hospital

Senator Rand Paul, the first U.S. Senator who tested positive for the coronavirus, reported Tuesday that he’s “retested” negative for the virus. Now, Paul said in a Tweet, he’ll be volunteering to assist local hospitals overwhelmed by the pandemic outbreak.

“I appreciate all the best wishes I have received. I have been retested and I am negative. I have started volunteering at a local hospital to assist those in my community who are in need of medical help, including Coronavirus patients. Together we will overcome this!” the Kentucky Senator wrote in a Tweet.

Paul was a physician before he was a politician.┬áIn 1995, he founded the Southern Kentucky Lions Eye Clinic and was a member of Lions Clubs International, both to serve patients in need. He’s also done pro-bono surgeries and provided care for patients around the world.
