President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for the coronavirus, Trump announced on Twitter on Sunday.

“@RudyGiuliani, by far the greatest mayor in the history of NYC, and who has been working tirelessly exposing the most corrupt election (by far!) in the history of the USA,  has tested positive for the China Virus. Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!” Trump wrote.

Giuliani, 76, is in a high-risk group for Covid-19. It’s unclear whether or not Giuliani has symptoms. Giuliani’s team did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.

The former New York City mayor was in Atlanta on Thursday to attend a state Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing on election security. He has led Trump’s legal fight to undo Joe Biden’s projected win in November, claiming without evidence widespread voter fraud.

Giuliani’s diagnosis comes a roughly weeks after his son Andrew Giuliani, a special assistant to Trump, also tested positive for the virus.
