Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she tested positive for COVID-19. However, it is not known when Palin tested positive. Her son and daughter tested positive as well. She has urged everyone to wear masks and ensure a healthy lifestyle.
Sarah Palin said Wednesday she has tested positive for COVID-19. Palin who was the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008 and now a TV personality, confirmed her positive test, urging other people to continue taking the pandemic seriously.
It was not clear when Palin tested positive. She told the magazine that other members of her family tested positive as well and that it started when one of her daughters woke up and noticed she had lost her sense of taste and smell. A subsequent test revealed a positive result.
She added that her father Chuck Heath had recently been through his second dose of vaccinations. Her son Trig, who was born with Down syndrome and is at increased risk from COVID, also tested positive. The former vice-presidential candidate said she gave him prescribed azithromycin to help control his high fever and loaded his food up with vitamins.
Palin, 57, said she quarantined with Trig and continued to test negative until she started to experience the “bizarre” symptoms so many others have felt and ultimately tested positive. She said she experienced a fever, sore muscles, and a loss of her senses of taste and smell, adding that COVID-19 can “really knock you down.”
Palin said: "I strongly encourage everyone to use common sense to avoid spreading this and every other virus out there.
"There are more viruses than there are stars in the sky, meaning we'll never avoid every source of illness or danger."
She added: "But please be vigilant, don't be frightened, and I advise reprioritizing some personal time and resources to ensure a healthy lifestyle as you can create so when viruses do hit, you have at least some armor to fight it."
The poll by Kaiser Family Foundation tells that about 61% of adults in the US have either received their first dose or are eager for one, which was 47% back in January.
President Joe Biden said in his speech on March 29 that 90% of US adults will be eligible for a Covid-19 shot by 19 April.
He added: "We’re going to send more aid to states to expand the opening of more community vaccination sites, more vaccines, more sites, more vaccinators, all designed to speed our critical work."
