Hagee has been a committed supporter of Israel, founding Christians United for Israel.
Prominent megachurch pastor and conservative activist John Hagee has been diagnosed with COVID-19, his son announced during services at the church his father founded.
The 80-year-old pastor received the diagnosis Friday and was recovering after the illness was detected early, Matt Hagee said during Sunday morning services at Cornerstone Church.
John Hagee founded a ministry that the church says now has 22,000 members. His sermons are broadcast throughout the United States and Canada and livestreamed online.
Hagee has been a committed supporter of Israel, founding Christians United for Israel. Well-known among Jewish leaders, he was wished a speedy recovery by none other than Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“I pray for the speedy recovery of Pastor John Hagee. Israel has no better friend,” Netanyahu said.
Hagee also is a stalwart backer of President Donald Trump, who with first lady Melania Trump also has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Trump was discharged Monday from Walter Reed Military Medical Center and returned to the White House, where his doctors said he would continue receiving treatment.
For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and a cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
