"My husband has coronavirus. I love him & not being able to be by his side is one of the hardest things about this disease," Klobuchar tweeted. "So many are going through this & much worse. I pray for him & you & meanwhile I will do all I can to get help to the American people."

After a persistent temperature and a "bad, bad" cough, Bessler began coughing up blood, Klobuchar said, prompting him to get a coronavirus test and a chest X-ray.

He checked into a hospital in Virginia and "now has pneumonia and is on oxygen but not a ventilator," Klobuchar said.

To date, only one U.S. senator, Rand Paul, R-Ky., has tested positive for coronavirus.

And he was on oxygen for four or five days, and then somehow turned the corner, and he’s now recovering at home. They still don’t know when he won't be contagious, so I am going to go wave to him outside the window.
