The 76-year-old former New York mayor, who is leading Trump’s long-term legal challenges to overturn the presidential election results, was admitted to Georgetown University Hospital on Sunday. Giuliani said in a radio interview Wednesday morning that he was feeling well and announced that he would be leaving the facility later today.
“I feel pretty much 100% now,” he told TalkRadio 77 WABC. “I have to quarantine myself for a few more days. Because, from the way they calculate it, I was probably (infected with coronavirus) seven, eight days ago. So I have about three or four days left to make sure. from my system. ”
He was spotted by reporters leaving the hospital in a vehicle on Wednesday just before 5 p.m. and gave the cameras a thumbs-up.
Giuliani, who noted that he currently has no major symptoms, claimed that some of the drugs given to him at the hospital worked like “miracles.”
During his own battle with the virus in October, Trump received the experimental antibody treatment from Regeneron and also received dexamethasone and remdesivir, which subsequently received federal approval for treatment of Covid-19.
News of Giuliani’s hospital stay immediately raised concerns about the extent to which Trump’s lawyer, who has often appeared maskless as he crisscrossed the country in recent weeks to push forward baseless allegations of electoral fraud of the president, may have spread the virus among officials. On Sunday evening, it was announced that the Arizona state legislature – where Giuliani appeared early last week – would be closed for the coming week due to concerns over Covid-19. Jenna Ellis, another lawyer representing Trump’s efforts to overturn the election results, also announced this week that she had tested positive for Covid-19.
Giuliani, who is considered at higher risk for complications from the coronavirus due to his age, has repeatedly ignored public health guidelines, appearing without a mask in state capitals, hotel ballrooms and at conferences press releases in recent weeks. At many events, most of the others inside were also not wearing masks.
