Laura Loomer tests positive for COVID-19
Laura Loomer, a right-wing political activist, confirmed that she tested positive for COVID-19.
“I had a fever, chills, a runny nose, sore throat, nausea and severe body aches that made my whole body feel like I got hit by a bus,” the Florida House candidate wrote on Gettr.
Loomer said she has not and will not receive the vaccine. The 28-year-old said she “immediately started a treatment of Azithromyacin and Hydroxychloroquine.”
“Can’t even begin to explain how brutal the body aches and nausea that come with COVID are. I am in so much pain.,” she reportedly wrote on Telegram.
Last year, Loomer became the subject of criticism after saying she wished she could get the virus to show everyone it’s overblown.
“I hope I get COVID just so I can prove to people I’ve had bouts of food poisoning that are more serious and life threatening than a hyped up virus. Have you ever eaten bad fajitas? That will kill you faster than COVID,” she wrote on Parler in December.
