Ex-NJ governor Chris Christie says he's out of the hospital
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said Saturday he was discharged from a New Jersey hospital where he spent a week after announcing he was infected with the coronavirus.
"I'm happy to announce that I was released from Morristown Medical Center this morning," Christie said in a post on Saturday morning on Twitter. “I want to thank the exceptional doctors and nurses who have looked after me over the past week. Thanks to my family and friends for their prayers. I'll have more to say about it next week. "
Christie announced on October 3 that he had tested positive and said hours later that he checked into the hospital after deciding with his doctors that it was "an important precaution" given his history of asthma.
Christie was part of a series of virus cases associated with President Donald Trump's inner circle. In addition to Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, several people who had traveled with the president or attended events with him recently contracted the virus.
Trump's former 2016 rival told The Associated Press on October 2 that the last time he was in Cleveland with the president was on September 29, as he was preparing for his debate with former Vice President Joe Biden. He tweeted on the morning of October 2 that he had last tested negative before that first presidential debate and had no symptoms at the time.
During Christie's first tenure as New Jersey governor, he underwent lap band surgery in 2013 and lost significant weight. Two years earlier, he was hospitalized for breathing difficulties. The 58-year-old who uses an inhaler once called himself "the healthiest fat guy you have ever seen".
