Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is expected to be released from the hospital "soon" after being admitted for a non-coronavirus related issue, a department spokesperson told FOX Business.
"Secretary Ross has been admitted into the hospital for minor, non-coronavirus related issues," the spokesperson said Saturday night. "He is doing well and we anticipate his release soon."
Ross, 82, was not feeling well and went to a hospital in upstate New York on Friday night, two sources said.
Ross, a former banker known for acquiring and restructuring failed companies, was confirmed as commerce secretary in February 2017.
