‘I’m Weak, But I Feel Good’: Former New York Senator Hospitalized With COVID-19
Former Republican New York Sen. Al D’Amato was hospitalized for treatment for the coronavirus, The New York Post reported Friday.
D’Amato said he had a “light fever” and “congestion,” The New York Post reported. The former senator said he began to feel sick late last week and doesn’t believe he had put anyone in contact with the coronavirus.
“I’m weak, but I feel good,” D’Amato told The New York Post in a phone interview from St. Francis Hospital when he was being taken care of.
D’Amato tested positive for the virus last week and immediately went into self-quarantine at his house on Long Island, his office said in a Friday statement, PIX 11 reported. The former senator checked himself into the hospital in order to be cautious.
“As his recovery was not as prompt as he would have liked, out of an abundance of caution, he admitted himself to a regional hospital where he continues to be treated for the virus and remains in good spirits,” a spokesperson said in a statement, according to PIX 11.
