Murthy, who is fully vaccinated, said that his wife and 4-year-old son also tested positive for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus and developed mild symptoms. Previously, he announced his 5-year-old daughter contracted the virus and is now recovering.
“Update: my 5 year old son, my wife Alice, and I have all tested positive for COVID-19. Our son has a runny nose and low grade fever but is otherwise eating, drinking, playing with his sister, and watching his favorite cartoons,” Murthy wrote. “My four year old daughter who tested positive first is doing ok. Fevers are starting to improve. She’s still congested and is now hoarse from all the coughing, but thankfully she’s still smiling and enjoying her arts and crafts.”
Murthy, who confirmed his symptoms are “mild,” also wrote that “when you’ve been as safe as you can, getting COVID-19 can be frustrating and disappointing. I’ve felt that. It can also be a source of shame. Many people assume you must have been careless to get sick. Our safety measures reduce risk but they can’t eliminate risk. Nothing can.”
As numerous studies have shown the COVID-19 Omicron variant is highly infectious and easily infects vaccinated individuals, it’s not clear why he suggested that one would feel shame for contracting a highly contagious virus.
Murthy, who previously mounted a defense of the Biden administration’s controversial vaccine mandate for private businesses with 100 or more workers, recommended on Friday that people get the vaccine and a booster if eligible.
His positive COVID-19 test comes as a number of Democrat-led states and municipalities have started to rescind vaccine or mask mandates. In the past week, authorities in Washington and Philadelphia announced they would end their vaccine passport rules for restaurants and other venues—for now.
And this month, so far, the governors of New Jersey, California, Oregon, Connecticut, and Delaware have announced plans to roll back mask mandates. However, some of the states will still require masks in schools.
On Wednesday, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walenksy told reporters that the Atlanta-based health agency is not considering changing its mask recommendation and mandate for public transportation. Walensky’s rationale was that the agency, under its 2020 guidelines, will only do so if community transmission drops.
“We recognize the importance of not just cases, which continue to result in substantial or high community transmission and over 97 percent of our counties in the country, but critically, medically severe disease that leads to hospitalizations,” she said.
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
