The United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to multiple reports on Monday morning.
“We are so touched by the outpouring of concern and prayers after the news came out that I had tested positive for COVID-19.
“Thankfully I have access to a very powerful therapeutic, so I was only sick for a very short period of time and I am already back to working, albeit virtually. I will be quarantining for a few days just to be safe. God is good!,” Ben Carson said on Facebook.
