    The decision was made as a precaution measure after consulting his doctors, since Christie has a long medical record of suffering from asthma.

    Former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie checked into a hospital on Saturday afternoon, according to a tweet he posted later. 

    He also thanked medics treating coronavirus patients and expressed hope of coming back home soon.

    ​Christie apparently contracted coronavirus while visiting formal events recently. According to Axios, he helped President Donald Trump, who's also tested positive for COVID-19, to prepare for his first presidential debate with Joe Biden. He was also at Judge Amy Coney Barrett's Rose Garden nomination on Tuesday, after which several officials close to the White House were confirmed with coronavirus.
