Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
“COVID-19 has literally hit home,” the 50-year old mayor tweeted. “I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive.”
Keisha Lance Bottoms is often referred to as a possible running mate for Joe Biden.
Her profile rose recently amid the coronavirus pandemic and racially motivated killings of black people in the state of Georgia.
Georgia reported 1,897 new coronavirus cases on Sunday.
