Here’s what he said.
According to Breitbart News, Sen. Rand Paul broke silence on his fight against the coronavirus stating that he had an “extraordinarily mild case.”
“Well, you know, in my case, I had an extraordinarily mild case,” he said. “I had no symptoms. Never had a headache. Never had a body ache. Never had a fever. Never had a cough. I didn’t really have any symptoms. In fact, I would have never gone to the hospital had I not — or not to the hospital, I would not have even gone to the doctor’s office had I not known this was about and that I had been traveling so much.”
“So it’s a bizarre sort of situation that some people get very, very sick, you know, even die from this, and some people get no symptoms,” Paul continued.
He further stated, “They’ve tested people in Iceland where they’ve tested, you know, a large body of the population of Iceland and they found that about 50 percent of the people were positive have no symptoms. And so there’s something about this illness that’s not just the illness, but your immune response to it. And it may be some sort of genetic thing that some people are genetically predisposed to an overwhelming immune response that ends up making the patient very sick with their lungs filling up with fluid and then other people, like myself, get virtually no symptoms.” You can watch a clip of Paul’s comments here.
