Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms says she tested positive for coronavirus

(CNN) Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, one of the top prospects to be presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's running mate, said Monday that she has tested positive for Covid-19.

"COVID-19 has literally hit home. I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive," the mayor said on Twitter.
She told MSNBC that she received the news that both she and her husband were positive on Monday. She said they decided to get tested because her husband was sleeping more than normal.

"It's a shock," she said, noting that she initially thought her husband's symptoms were due to allergies. "It leaves me at a loss for words."

The mayor added that her diagnosis highlights how contagious the virus is and that she has no idea where they were exposed. (Read More)

1. I am really sorry to hear this.

Nobody should test positive for this damned virus, esp. a talented Black mayor.

I hope she recovers (and her husband too!) without any complications.
