First Member of United States Senate to Test Positive for COVID – 19

On March 22, 2020, he announced that he had tested positive for corona virus (COVID -19), a pandemic that has taken the lives of more than 9000 people.

Two weeks ago, he attended a major black-tie event in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Several attendees of the event have tested positive for the corona virus. 

According to several Republican sources, he got tested for the virus because he too had been at that event.

Some of the senators expressed their anger at Paul for not being on self-quarantine earlier and potentially exposing senators to the corona virus. 

In his defense, he said, 

“For those who want to criticize me for lack of quarantine, realize that if the rules on testing had been followed to a tee, I would never have been tested and would still be walking around the halls of the Capitol.” 

He also said that he took the extra precaution, which led him to get tested.

His earnings from his profession as an ophthalmologist, surgeon, politician, and physician has added to his net worth.
