This week, the Reba actress explained on a TikTok live stream that she and her boyfriend, Young Sheldon star Rex Linn, had tested positive for the virus despite being vaccinated.
Now, Reba McEntire is urging everyone to stay at home following her battle with COVID-19.
Reba sounds downright miserable and it’s like that she didn’t just get a “mild” case.
According to The Hill:
McEntire says she and her boyfriend, Rex Linn, have both tested positive for COVID-19 despite being vaccinated in what are known as breakthrough infections.
In a recent TikTok live stream McEntire said, according to Fox News, “I just want to say one thing: This has been a hard year, and it’s getting rougher again, You guys, please stay safe. Wear your mask. Do what you have to do. Stay home.”
“It’s not fun to get this. I did get it. Rex and I got it, and it’s not fun. You don’t feel good,” McEntire said. “We were both vaccinated, and we still got it, so stay safe, stay home and be protected the best you can.”
Breakthrough COVID-19 cases still account for an incredibly small number of confirmed cases in the U.S. from a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation in late July, “the rate of breakthrough cases reported among those fully vaccinated is well below 1% in all reporting states” that Kaiser analyzed.
So, it would seem that vaccinated folks are getting “serious” cases of COVID, even though we’ve been told that’s not the case?
Who knows? It’s so hard to tell these days, thanks to all the confusing information and “science” that keeps changing at the drop of a hat.
