Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton revealed earlier this evening, Tuesday, March 22, that she has tested positive for COVID-19. The news hit social media when the former presidential hopeful took to Twitter to reveal the diagnosis in an early evening post.

In the tweet, Hillary Clinton notes that she is feeling mild symptoms related to the virus. However, Clinton notes, she is feeling fine overall, despite the positive COVID-19 test.

“Well, I’ve tested positive for COVID,” Clinton tells her Twitter followers earlier this evening.

“I’ve got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine,” the former Secretary of State continues in the Tuesday evening Twitter update.

The former Democratic presidential nominee adds that she is thankful for the protections that are available against the virus.
