Detroit Police Chief James Craig, who tested positive for COVID-19 late last week, tells CNN he feels better.
"I'm not feeling bad. I mean it's been a little bit of a fight, but I've been fortunate," he said on "Erin Burnett OutFront" on Tuesday, according to The Detroit News.
"You know, I have some mild symptoms now ... but all in all, I'm fighting the good fight and I certainly appreciate all the support I'm getting across the country."
To date, two people in the department -- Capt. Jonathan Parnell, 50, and a dispatcher -- have died from the virus.
Hundreds of department members have been quarantined and 76 have tested positive for the virus.
The department had backup plans to work with a smaller force, the chief says.
