Jesse Jackson, wife, hospitalized with COVID-19

The Rev. Jesse Jackson and his wife have been hospitalized in Chicago just after screening positive for COVID-19, in accordance to a assertion on Sunday.

The 79-yr-previous political activist and minister contracted the virus despite being vaccinated back in January, in a publicity blitz meant to stimulate black people today to get a jab.

He and his spouse, Jacqueline Jackson, 77, are becoming addressed at Northwestern Memorial Medical center in Chicago.
