Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms of Atlanta, who is reportedly on Joe Biden’s vice presidential short list, said on Monday that she had tested positive for coronavirus.

“COVID-19 has literally hit home,” she wrote on Twitter. “I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive.”

In an MSNBC interview on Monday, Bottoms said that she got tested because her husband had been sleeping more than usual – sometimes a symptom of having the coronavirus – and that the positive result was a “shock.”
