Aug 22, 2021 | Coronavirus

After testing positive for Covid-19, Rev. Jesse Jackson and his wife have been admitted to the hospital.

In a statement released Saturday, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition (RPC) announced; “Doctors are currently monitoring the condition of both,” “Anyone who has been around either of them for the last five or six days should follow the CDC guidelines.”

According to its website, RPC is a Chicago-based worldwide human and civil rights organisation formed by Jackson.

According to the statement, Jackson, 79, and his wife, Jacqueline Jackson, 77, are currently in Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago.

According to a statement from RPC at the time, Jackson received his first Covid-19 vaccine injection in January at an event to promote African American confidence in immunizations.

Breakthrough infections for persons who have been vaccinated have been observed, mostly among the elderly or immunocompromised, due to the more deadly nature of the Delta form.
