Three fully vaccinated U.S. senators have tested positive for the coronavirus. The senators announced they have Covid-19 on Thursday.
“Sens. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), Angus King (I-Maine) and John Hickenlooper (D-Colo.) said they had tested positive in what is known as a breakthrough case, when fully vaccinated individuals test positive for COVID-19,” the Hill reported. “It marks three known breakthrough cases among senators within 24 hours.”
“The positive tests come as senators have been back in their home states for roughly a week and aren’t expected to return to Washington, D.C., until mid-September,” the Hill noted.
The news comes amidst an all-out press to get all Americans possible vaccinated for Covid-9, even if they are too young to be at risk or already have natural immunity.
Earlier, Becker News broke that a lawsuit was being filed in Colorado against the upcoming military vaccine mandate.
Soldiers in Colorado filed the lawsuit against Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Secretary of Health & Human Services Xavier Becerra, and Janet Woodock, Acting Commissioner of the Food & Drug Administration. The plaintiffs argue that their natural immunity should exempt them from the mandatory vaccinations.
The plaintiffs submitted in their lawsuit expert testimony from Dr. Peter McCullough, M.D., who is board certified in internal medicine and was the Chief Fellow at William Beaumont Hospital. In addition to being a cardiologist, he also holds a Master’s Degree in Public Health from the University of Michigan. He is currently a Professor of Medicine at Texas Christian University and the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center School of Medicine.
“To put it concisely and bluntly, people who have naturally created antibodies resulting from contracting and recovering from the Virus should not receive any inoculation against the virus or any family or variant thereof becuase it will do more harm than good,” Dr. McCullough is testifying.
