Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is knocked back but not knocked down, while hospitalized with the coronavirus, the Star Ledger reported Monday.

TRENTON, N.J.: Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is knocked back but not knocked down, while hospitalized with the coronavirus, the Star Ledger reported Monday.

The newspaper’s columnist Tom Moran reported he spoke to the former GOP governor for 10 minutes Monday. Christie sounded raspy, but didnt want to talk about details about his health or his treatment, according to the article.

Christie said the virus is scary, of course, and that he’s a prime target given his weight and a history of asthma, according to the newspaper.

Christie called to rub (Moran’s) nose in a mistake he had made stemming from Christie’s 2012 visit to Jordan, according to the newspaper.

So, for now, folks, lets not worry too much. The man is knocked back, but hes not knocked down,” Moran wrote.

Christie announced Saturday morning that he tested positive a day after President Donald Trumps own diagnosis. He was with the president for debate prep in Cleveland on Tuesday and at the Rose Garden event where Trump named Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his pick for the Supreme Court on Sept. 26.

Later Saturday, Christie said he had gone to the hospital for precautionary reasons including his history of asthma.

Messages seeking comment were left with Christie’s spokeswoman.
