TEXAS (VINnews) – Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tests positive for COVID-19; office says the Republican is vaccinated and has no symptoms.
Here’s the full statement from his office:
“Governor Greg Abbott today tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The Governor has been testing daily, and today was the first positive test result. Governor Abbott is in constant communication with his staff, agency heads, and government officials to ensure that state government continues to operate smoothly and efficiently. The Governor will isolate in the Governor’s Mansion and continue to test daily. Governor Abbott is receiving Regeneron’s monoclonal antibody treatment.
“Governor Abbott is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, in good health, and currently experiencing no symptoms. Everyone that the Governor has been in close contact with today has been notified. Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott tested negative.”
I hope he recovers quickly. I seem to recall he has a number of medical issues.
The proper unbiased headline would read: “Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott Tests Positive For COVID And Is Completely Asymptomatic Because Being Fully Vaccinated.”
If the Governor was vaccinated why was he tested daily?
If he’s asymptomatic,why’s he receiving Regeneron?
