Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for COVID-19, President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday afternoon.
“@RudyGiuliani, by far the greatest mayor in the history of NYC, and who has been working tirelessly exposing the most corrupt election (by far!) in the history of the USA, has tested positive for the China Virus. Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!” Trump tweeted.
Just hours after the announcement, ABC News reported that the 76-year-old was admitted to MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington Sunday.
It is unclear when exactly Giuliani tested positive or the details of his condition. There have been no additional details provided about his condition.
The former New York City mayor appeared tired and tired and subdued during a Fox News appearance on Sunday morning, just two hours before Trump’s tweet.
He has spent the last month traveling the country fighting to overturn the 2020 election results in states including Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona on behalf of the president. On Wednesday, Giuliani attended a hearing in the Michigan House of Representatives where he was seen without a mask and argued the election was riddled with fraud.
Rudy Giuliani, who just tested positive for COVID-19, asked a witness at a committee hearing to take off her face masks just days ago, claiming he couldn't hear her speak. (Nobody else had any issues hearing the witness except for Giuliani.) pic.twitter.com/36ft1zBaKG

The next day he appeared at a hearing at the Georgia Senate Judiciary Committee to contest that state’s results.
“Senate staff members who were present in the committee room for the hearings have been instructed to work from home until they have an opportunity to take a COVID test and receive the results,” a spokesperson for the Georgia state senate told ABC News.
