BOWLING GREEN, KY – Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was the first US lawmaker to test positive for coronavirus, though he was mostly asymptomatic at the time. Now rested and recently testing negative for the virus, the physician and liberty-minded U.S. Senator has gone straight to work volunteering at a local hospital in his hometown.
I appreciate all the best wishes I have received. I have been retested and I am negative. I have started volunteering at a local hospital to assist those in my community who are in need of medical help, including Coronavirus patients. Together we will overcome this! pic.twitter.com/9SeypT7rL6

An ophthalmologist by training, Senator Paul actually earned his medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine. He’s made news before for embarking on medical mission trips to places like Guatemala, performing life-changing cataracts surgery for hundreds of men, women, and children. At the same time, he is a tireless defender of liberty and the constitutional precepts that have enabled the greatness of the United States.
He walks the walk, in so many ways, and we’re glad to see that Sen. Paul is healthy again.
