The day after revealing her husband had tested positive for coronavirus and was hospitalized, Sen. Amy Klobuchar provided an update, saying he’s still on oxygen. Her husband, John Bessler, has suffered from a bleeding cough and “dangerously low” oxygen levels, the Minnesota senator told Good Morning America host Robin Roberts on Tuesday. Klobuchar said one of the hardest things about the disease is “you can’t go and visit your loved one.”

“All you can do is call, email and text and try to reach the caretakers who are taking care of him … to get updates,” Klobuchar said.

Bessler started to feel sick almost two weeks ago and immediately self-quarantined in his apartment, as coronavirus concerns began to grow, Klobuchar said. But given that Bessler, 52, was healthy and had no pre-existing health conditions, she said she wasn’t sure how he contracted the virus. While he took the test last Wednesday, Klobuchar said he received the results on Monday.
