CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said Monday he is recuperating at home after being diagnosed with the coronavirus and pneumonia.

Morrisey said in a statement that he was diagnosed last week. He said he is currently receiving breathing and medical treatments while under quarantine at home.

“I am feeling better today, and as such I am busy working from home," Morrisey said. "Make no mistake about it, this can be a nasty virus, especially for those who are elderly or may be immunocompromised.

Morrisey said he hopes to return to his office “in the very near future.”
