Herman Cain, a former presidential candidate and a co-chairman for Black Voices for Trump, remains hospitalized for complications related to the coronavirus after contracting the contagion several weeks ago. 

The 74-year-old Cain’s condition was updated Monday on his official Twitter account, in a series of posts. 

“We know it's been a few days since we last gave you an update on the boss,” one post stated. “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, who ran for president in the 2012 GOP primary, was admitted July 2 to a hospital in Atlanta.

He attended a June 20 Trump reelection rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in which several members of Trump’s advance team contracted the virus. And he travelled in Arizona, which has had a recent spike in cases. However, how Cain contracted the virus is unclear.
