Christie arrives for a news conference at the White House on September 27.

He noted that White House did not contact him regarding contact tracing.

The government's top infectious disease doctor, Anthony Fauci, last week called the Rose Garden event, where few attendees wore masks, a "superspreader event".

"It was a mistake".

"I was led to believe that all the people I was interacting with had been tested and it gave you a false sense of security", he said. Everybody's going to make their own decisions on that but I think no matter what you're doing, whether you're at a rally for your preferred candidate whether you're out at the supermarket, whether you're at a protest, no matter what you're doing, you should have a mask on and you should try to remain socially distant from folks.

'It was wrong and it was just a big mistake'.

Christie, 58, is among more than a dozen high-profile Republican leaders who have tested positive for the coronavirus after attending an event in the Rose Garden on September 26 to honor Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett. At least 20 people who attended the event contracted the virus.

In the statement he admits he had been "wrong" not to wear a mask.

And, it’s important to account for the time and effort spent by administrative staff handling these denied claims. They also have the potential to adversely affect patients’ opinions about the organization.

Christie entered the hospital a week later for what turned into a seven-day stay, explaining that the virus hit him "like a freight train".

"No one should be happy to get the virus and no one should be cavalier about being infected or infecting others", Christie said, adding that "as a former public official, I believe we have not treated Americans as adults, who understand truth, sacrifice and responsibility". I was wracked with pain and exhaustion'. It all happened very very quickly. Eli Lilly's antibody treatment study was paused this week over a "potential safety concern".

"It was a mistake", Mr Christie told ABC's Good Morning America in an interview where he detailed his hospitalisation following his interactions with President Donald Trump and his staff ahead of the first presidential debate. "It's very random. It's very, very unpredictable".

He said Covid-19 had hospitalized him for 72 hours but there was nothing to fear.

"When you have seven days in isolation in an ICU though, you have time to do a lot of thinking".

At a town hall in Miami on Tuesday night, Trump said of Christie's statement, "He has to say that". "I think he should be even more affirmative about it".

He urged Mr Trump and leaders across the political spectrum to be more "affirmative" about masks. "Put your masks on and be safe".

"We need to be telling people there is no downside to you wearing masks and in fact there can be a great deal of upside", Mr Christie said.
