Former Republican presidential candidate and enthusiastic Trump supporter Herman Cain is still fighting the coronavirus. He has been hospitalized more than three weeks after he was first diagnosed. 

According to a statement via Twitter on July 27, “We know it's been a few days since we last gave you an update on the boss. But he is still in the hospital being treated with oxygen for his lungs. In the meantime, the doctors say his other organs and systems are strong.”

Cain posted a photo of himself at the Tulsa rally next to other attendees without a mask.
