Mitt Romney, 74, tests positive for COVID-19: Vaccinated senator is asymptomatic and will work from home https://t.co/eS9lrUKeTd

CBS News reported:
Romney joins dozens of other members of Congress who have tested positive for the virus despite being fully vaccinated. In recent weeks, lawmakers including Virginia Senator Mark Warner and Arizona Representative Raúl Grijalva have announced positive test results.
While being vaccinated significantly lowers the chances of contracting COVID-19, breakthrough infections are still common, according to the CDC. But research has shown that the vaccine significantly lowers a person’s chances of being hospitalized or dying from the virus.
While mainstream media still wants us to believe the experimental COVID-19 jabs ‘significantly’ lower your chance of hospitalization, recent figures tell a different story.
Since Romney is asymptomatic, there’s a possibility his test result was a false positive.
Daily Mail added:
In May 2020, doctors directed both Romney and Mike Lee, his fellow Utah senator, to self-quarantine after being around Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, who tested positive for COVID-19.
Romney, who said he did not experience any symptoms, tested negative for the virus at that time.
Earlier this month, Romney criticized the Biden administration for not doing enough to supply sufficient COVID tests. He said that he himself was frequently tested, and thought everyone should have access to the tests.
‘I think, unfortunately, the administration was wrong in not building testing capacity at a time when we all thought COVID was going away,’ he said in a Senate hearing.
‘I think a lot of individuals, myself included, get tested when there’s no indication that I need to get tested, other than to just want to make sure I’m not sick.
‘There’s huge demand for tests which are in short supply, in part because of that.’
