Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has tested positive for COVID-19, becoming the first U.S. governor known to have been infected by the coronavirus.
Stitt, a Republican, disclosed his illness during a press conference over Zoom on Wednesday. He said he had been tested the day before, and that he has been getting tested periodically.
"I feel fine. I felt a little bit achy yesterday, didn't have a fever but just a little bit achy," the governor said. "So just did my regular testing and it came back positive."
