Illinois Attorney General Says He Has Tested Positive for the Coronavirus

CHICAGO — Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul says he has tested positive for the coronavirus, has mild COVID-19 symptoms and is self-isolating on the advice of his doctor.

Raoul revealed his virus test results on Tuesday and said he got tested a day earlier after experiencing symptoms.

He said in a statement that he is fortunate “to be otherwise healthy.”

The former state legislator is a Democrat who won his first term as state attorney general in 2018.

Raoul’s disclosure came as the number of confirmed virus cases in Illinois has been falling and the state has been taking gradual steps to reopen amid stay-at-home orders.
