Rudy Giuliani, an attorney for US President Donald Trump, said he will leave the hospital on Wednesday after a short stay following his COVID-19 diagnosis over the weekend.

Giuliani, 76, was the mayor of New York City and is leading Trump’s legal efforts to reverse his loss to President-elect Democrat Joe Biden in the Nov.3 election.
The attorney said he felt 10 years younger after receiving some of the same medications that Trump took when he contracted COVID-19 in October.
“I feel almost 100% right now,” Giuliani told WABC-AM radio in New York on Wednesday, adding that he would quarantine for three or four more days.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people who have had COVID-19 isolate themselves from others, including members of their own household if possible, during at least 10 days after the first symptoms appeared.
Giuliani is the latest in a long line of people close to the White House, including Trump himself, who has been infected during a pandemic that has killed more than 286,000 Americans.
The former mayor plans to attend a virtual hearing this week with Georgia lawmakers to discuss election issues, a source told . on Tuesday.
The hearing comes after Giuliani visited the Georgia House of Representatives in person last week, where he urged state lawmakers to step in and reverse Biden’s victory in the state. Giuliani also made similar requests last week in Michigan and Arizona.
Giuliani’s meetings with state officials are a last-ditch effort to persuade them to reverse the election results, as his legal efforts so far have failed to convince any court that widespread fraud was involved and that cost Trump the election.
State and federal officials have repeatedly said there is no evidence of large-scale fraud. Courts across the country have rejected lawsuits seeking to throw away votes, including the US Supreme Court, which on Tuesday refused to stop Pennsylvania from formalizing Biden’s victory in the state.
