Democrat Senator says he tested positive for coronavirus antibodies

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) announced on Thursday that he and his wife both tested positive for coronavirus antibodies after a suspected case of COVID-19 in late March.

Kaine revealed that he had experienced a flu-like illness in March, but chalked up the symptoms to an “unusually high spring pollen count.” Neither were tested for the virus at the time.

“At the end of March, I experienced new symptoms that I initially thought were flu remnants and a reaction to an unusually high spring pollen count. Then Anne experienced a short bout of fever and chills, followed by congestion and eventually a cough,” Kaine said in the statement.

After recovering from the mystery illness, Kaine said his doctor advised the pair that they may have had an undiagnosed case of COVID-19.

“We were both at home in Richmond [after getting the news], working remotely and isolated from others. Due to the national testing shortage, we were not tested for the virus but continued isolating and watched for any worsening of symptoms. By mid-April we were symptom free,” the former presidential candidate continued.

Both were then tested for antibodies to the novel coronavirus, though Kaine declined to disclose when the test took place.

Kaine is only the second senator to have contracted the virus. Sen. Rand Paul (D-KY) received a positive COVID-19 diagnosis in late March.
