Amy Klobuchar's Husband Diagnosed with Coronavirus, Now In Hospital After Coughing Up Blood

Senator Amy Klobuchar‘s husband John Bessler, 52, is currently hospitalized with Coronavirus.

“John started to feel sick when I was in Minnesota and he was in Washington D.C. and like so many others who have had the disease, he thought it was just a cold. Yet he immediately quarantined himself just in case and stopped going to his job teaching in Baltimore. He kept having a temperature and a bad, bad cough and when he started coughing up blood he got a test and a chest X-ray and they checked him into a hospital in Virginia because of a variety of things including very low oxygen levels which haven’t really improved. He now has pneumonia and is on oxygen but not a ventilator,” the 59-year-old politician wrote.

She continued, “While this is his story and not mine, I wanted to let my colleagues and constituents know that since John and I have been in different places for the last two weeks and I am outside the 14-day period for getting sick, my doctor has advised me to not get a test. As everyone is aware, there are test shortages for people who need them everywhere and I don’t qualify to get one under any standard.”

“I love my husband so very much and not being able to be there at the hospital by his side is one of the hardest things about this disease,” Amy added.

We’re wishing John and his family the best during this time and hoping for a quick recovery.
