Chris Christie said he was released from a New Jersey hospital Saturday a week since the former Republican governor tested positive for the novel coronavirus and soon began experiencing symptoms.
“I am happy to let you know that this morning I was released from Morristown Medical Center,” Mr. Christie said in a statement he shared on social media.
The former two-term Garden State governor and close ally to President Trump also voiced his appreciation to the medical professionals, family and friends who recently provided him care and support.
“I will have more to say about all of this next week,” Mr. Christie added.
Mr. Christie, 58, announced he tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, on Friday, Oct. 3, among a number of prominent Republicans suddenly becoming similarly ill.
He added hours later that was experiencing mild symptoms and had checked himself into the hospital as a precautionary measure, citing a history of asthma.
