Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spent seven days in the intensive care unit with COVID-19.
He was released from the hospital on October 10, after registration on October 3.
Christie said she believes she is in a “safe zone” in the White House, where many thought testing would protect them from the virus. Christie was at risk of serious complications from COVID-19 because she was overweight and had asthma.
“When I entered the White House, I believed I was in a safe zone because of the testing I and many others took every day,”; Christie said in a statement. “I was wrong.” He also spent hours with the president, helping him prepare for the debate against Joe Biden in early October.
Christie was one of many people associated with the president and the White House who tested positive for COVID-19. President, First Lady Melania Trump,, adviser Hope Hicks, chief aide Stephen Miller, former adviser Kellianna Conway and others in the presidential orbit have seen positive results.
“No one should be happy about being infected with the virus, and no one should be cavalier about infecting or infecting others,” Christie warned.
Since then, Mr. Trump has said he feels better than he did before he became infected with COVID-19..
Christie also said, “Every government official, regardless of party or position, should advocate that every American wear a mask in public, according to social distance, and wash his hands frequently every day.”
