President Trump tweeted Sunday that personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has COVID-19. Giuliani "has tested positive for the China Virus," Trump wrote in a tweet that heaped praise on the former New York City mayor. "Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!" USA Today notes that Giuliani has been traveling throughout the US while making allegations about election fraud, often without social-distancing or wearing a mask. Details are scant and it's unclear why Trump made the announcement, but a source tells the New York Times that Giuliani is at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC. It's unknown whether the 76-year-old has any symptoms from the illness that has infected nearly 15 million Americans and killed over 281,000. (Read more Rudy Giuliani stories.)
