Sometimes, you don’t know what is going to hit you or when.

You just have to look at the people who have been affected by the COVID epidemic and you have to think that no matter what, they had no idea they were going to be affected by this.

If you look at the list of people who have been infected you have to realize by now that this does not care who you are or what your station in life is.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt announced on Wednesday that he has tested positive for COVID-19, weeks after attending a campaign rally for President Trump in Tulsa.

During a remote press conference, Stitt said he had tested positive for the disease caused by exposure to the coronavirus on Tuesday afternoon.

“I feel fine,” said Stitt, the first U.S. governor to announce testing positive for COVID-19. “I felt a little bit achy yesterday. I did not have a fever.”

He said he is working with contact tracers and will keep working from home in isolation. His wife and children have tested negative, he said.

The Republican governor attended Trump’s controversial campaign rally in Tulsa on June 20. Health officials there said the rally “more than likely” contributed to a surge in coronavirus cases.

“The past two days we’ve had almost 500 cases, and we know we had several large events a little over two weeks ago, which is about right,” Tulsa Health Department Executive Director Bruce Dart said on July 9. “So I guess we just connect the dots.”

At least eight Trump campaign staffers who attended the rally in Tulsa later tested positive for the coronavirus, according to CNN.

On the eve of the rally, Stitt downplayed concerns about holding the event amid the pandemic.

“We have been safely reopening,” he said during an interview with Fox News on June 16. “We were one of the first states to start reopening. So, we’re 57 days into our reopening campaign, and we feel like it’s the right time to start reopening. So we’re excited about the president coming.”
