Paul, 57, tested positive for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as novel coronavirus, last month and entered quarantine. He said he did not know how he became infected and would not have been tested under guidelines at the time.

Speaking on social media on Tuesday, Paul revealed he recovered from the virus and that hes been volunteering to help patients with COVID-19, the disease the virus causes.

“I appreciate all the best wishes I have received. I have been retested and I am negative. I have started volunteering at a local hospital to assist those in my community who are in need of medical help, including Coronavirus patients. Together we will overcome this!” he said.

No other senators have tested positive positive for COVID-19 and Romney and Lee later exited isolation.
