Chris Christie remains hospitalized with COVID-19 in New Jersey

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie remained hospitalized with COVID-19 on Wednesday for the fourth straight day.

The one-time presidential candidate has been at Morristown Medical Center since Saturday afternoon.

Insiders told The Post that Christie is holding up, and has been taking phone calls.

“He’s in good spirits and getting good care,” said a source familiar with his condition.

Christie, 58, has asthma, a respiratory condition that makes him more vulnerable to coronavirus complications, and is playing it safe, the source said.

“The governor is doing fine. He’s just being cautious,” another insider said.

“He’s been talking and texting with people all day. It’s Chris Christie!”

The two-term former governor told the Star-Ledger on Monday he had received well wishes from Jordanian King Abdullah II.

He spent much of last week playing Joe Biden in the president’s debate prep, and also attended the Sept. 26 event at which Trump introduced Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Attendees at both events later tested positive for the potentially deadly virus.
