"We knew when he was first hospitalized with COVID-19 that this was going to be a rough fight", read an article posted on the Twitter account. "It became clear pretty quick that he was in for a battle", the post states.

Cain started his career as a civilian employee for the U.S. Navy and worked for Pillsbury and Burger King before becoming chief executive of Godfather's Pizza.

But Cain ended his campaign after allegations surfaced that he had sexually harassed several women around the time he headed the National Restaurant Association from 1996 to 1999, and that he had an extramarital affair.

Cain, who is a survivor of stage 4 colon cancer, had also served on Kansas City's Federal Reserve Bank before eventually becoming a Republican presidential candidate in the 2012 elections. It is unknown where Cain contracted the virus. He was about to launch a television show for Newsmax TV. Cain tweeted a photo of him sitting with a group of people, none of whom were wearing a mask.
