California Gov. Newsom Joins Long List of Vaccine Enthusiasts to Come Down with Covid

California Gov. Newsom Joins Long List of Vaccine Enthusiasts to Come Down with Covid

New Zealand Prime Minister also tests positive for covid.

Last year, California Governor Gavin Newsom pushed vaccinations against covid eagerly and insinuated those who did not get the shot were like those who drive drunk.

“You can’t choose to drive drunk,” Newsom stated. “You put your life at risk. You put other lives at risk. We don’t want to go back to where we were this fall. We don’t want to wait until we’re overwhelmed in our ICUs. We don’t want to wait until thousands and thousands of more Californians die of a virus where they simply can save their lives by getting a simple vaccine shot.”

Newsom recently toured New Zealand and returned with a case of covid.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, a day after a high-profile meeting with the visiting prime minister of New Zealand.

Newsom has mild symptoms and will remain in isolation at least through Thursday and until he tests negative, his office said in a statement. The Democratic governor plans to work remotely during that time.

His office said Newsom, 54, will begin a five-day regimen of the Paxlovid antiviral.

Newsom may not be out of the woods yet. Doctors are reconsidering Paxlovid for lower-risk patients after a U.S. public health agency warned that symptoms can recur after people complete a course of the drug and that they need to isolate a second time.

More quarantine time “is not a crowd-pleaser,” Dr. Sandra Kemmerly, an infectious disease specialist at Ochsner Health in New Orleans, told Reuters. “For those people who really aren’t at risk … I would recommend that they not take it.”

Use of Pfizer’s Paxlovid, authorized to treat newly infected, at-risk people in order to prevent severe illness, has soared as infections have risen. More than 162,000 courses were dispensed last week – compared with an average of 33,000 a week since the drug was launched late last year, according to government data. Biden administration officials have pushed for wide use of Paxlovid, which the government purchased and provides free.

Few who followed the history of covid worldwide could forget the strict rules and moralistic assertions of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, whose restrictions stifled the burgeoning “Lord of the Rings” industry with Nazgul-like compassion.

She is infected with covid, too.

Jacinda Ardern’s office said in a statement Saturday that she has mild symptoms and has been in isolation since Sunday, when her partner, Clarke Gayford, tested positive.

Ardern is required to be in isolation until May 21, preventing her from being in Parliament for the release of the Government’s Emissions Reduction Plan on Monday and the country’s budget on Thursday.

“This is a milestone week for the government, and I’m gutted I can’t be there for it,” Ardern said.

We wish Newsom and Ardern speedy recoveries and hope they have learned valuable lessons about tying personal medical decisions to morality.

The vaccine is for another virus that’s (remarkably) not around any longer. It’s said to reduce symptoms on current versions, which, for all I know, it may.

    It might, but to believe that I would have to take the word of the people who have spread the most disinformation about the scamdemic and that is the government. I’m not inclined to give them the benefit of any doubt because they are known liars.

This have been going on for some weeks now, if anyone is paying attention. It’s like they are going down a roster of Democrat “celebrities”.

When their turn comes they come out saying “Oh. I just tested positive for covid. So lucky that I am vaccinated and super-duper boosted, or it would be so much worse.”

It’s all horse manure to keep the scam going.

    Yeah, that’s what blue gun-control cities say every time you publish their firearms violence statistics, which always show them at the top of the national charts: “Thank heavens for all our gun laws, or the violence would be so much worse.”

    Saying publically that you have WuFlu and actually having WuFlu are two separate things, just like dying from WuFlu (10%) and dying with WuFlu (90%) are two separate things. I bet no more than 10% of those who went public ever actually had it. Just something to give them attention. Anyone who had it twice likely had a false positive the first time, or maybe even the second time as well. medical Science died in March 2020, and to my knowledge it has not been resurrected.

A) Everyone is going to catch covid eventually – time to get realistic

B) contrary to published data, there are indications that the vax inhibits the body’s ability to develop more fully developed and long lasting immunity.

C) Emerging evidence is that being vaxed only reduces the severity of covid for less than 10% of those that become infected. The other 90% of individuals , being vaxed will provide virtually no difference in severity.

Isn’t this the second time he has it?
That we know of

So today we see yet another example of two-tiered justice, and also two-tiered healthcare. I have Covid right now, started last night and I took a test this morning. Like Newsom, I’m also experiencing mild symptoms, primarily a fever between 101-103. But I’m 10 years older than Newsom, I have diabetes and hypertension. I emailed my doctor about Paxlovid and got a reply that I “don’t meet the criteria”. So there are different criteria for leftist politicians vs regular tax paying peons.

Stop testing mild cases. Then the problem goes away.

Take ivermectin

    I had a mild case of covid and took some one night just to shut up a buddy of mine. Woke up with no symptoms at all. Anecdotal, I know, but I hear the same story a lot.

Good to see those “vaccines” are as effective as ever, that is, not at all.

It’s great to see more high profile people get COVID without any severe symptoms. Even crazy people in blue states will start accepting the endemic phase of the virus, and everybody can get back to normal.

My understanding is that Jacinda the nutter visited him in the US. She has recovered from Covid but a bunch of her fawning media sycophants and media managers have caught it since then.

She met with Biden today so I wish you guys luck.

Things Jacinda has done in NZ:

Deliberately pushed the housing market up and then using the state social housing provider to buy up as much as it could.
Promised to buy people’s cars off them then lease back electric alternatives.
Get banks to push SMEs looking for money to let the Government take an active stake in their business.
Dissolved a local City Council and replaced it with Government appointees.
Tried (with full media blackout) to bring in race based wards in one major city resulting in white votes worth 40% of Maori votes.
Stolen water infrastructure off local councils and given 50% of their control to tribes.
Split our health system so there’s a Maori one and a non-Maori one with the Maori one having veto powers over everyone else.
Stolen farmland off farmers under the guise of “protected wetlands” with no consideration.
Bringing in National minimum wage rates for entire industries.
Took farmer’s guns away that were legitimately being used for pest control (we have a bunny problem).
There is much more – none of which were campaigned on obviously.

She’s definitely giving your politicians bad ideas.

This guy is Kamala Harris with a penis.

Good thing we used birth control when we got pregnant, or otherwise we would have gotten more pregnant – said no one ever.

Got it at the train tracks I bet.

So, Pfizer produces an unproven and experimental gene therapy that the government tries to force people into taking and when the guinea pigs still get Covid they are prescribed another Pfizer product? This is what we call a clue to a racket.

Two-tiered justice is becoming more firmly rooted every day that we allow it to continue. This is just one aspect of the socialist assault on America that is motivated to bring down the republic. So far, they are gaining and we are losing…
