Sources who spoke with Christie as recently as Wednesday night told The Post and other media that he was doing well – but there have been few updates on his health since then.
Unlike other elderly Republicans who have had close contact with Trump – who are either recovering at home or repeatedly taking tests to see if they have been infected – Christie has been hospitalized longer than for the average COVID-19 patient.
Christie tweeted on Saturday – 7 days ago – that he had checked in at a New Jersey hospital out of caution after testing positive for the virus.
The median hospital stay for COVID-19 in countries outside of China is five days, according to the BMC medical journal.
His successor, Gov. Phil Murphy, told NJ.com on Thursday that Christie was “the quintessential Jersey fighter.”
