Greg Laurie, the senior pastor of the Harvest Christian Fellowship with locations in Riverside and Irvine, California and Maui, Hawaii, has announced he has tested positive for COVID-19.
In a video sent to CBN News on Monday, Laurie explained his symptoms started with some fatigue he was feeling, some aches and pains, and fever.
“Then I found out the news that I didn’t want to find out that I have the coronavirus,” Laurie said.
Laurie explained in the video that he has been feeling OK and is in quarantine.
“I just wish that at a time like this we could not politicize this and show compassion to people that are struggling with this. It’s real,” the pastor said. “It really is a pandemic that’s swept our nation and even the world.”
“If the President of the United States can get it, obviously anybody can get it,” he continued. “But with God’s help and your prayers, I expect to get through this.”
