Charlie Puth is among the latest American celebrity who tested positive for COVID-19 after Billie Eilish who also shared the news of being diagnosed with COVID-19 after she got vaccinated in August.
Eilish praised the COVD-19 vaccine, telling Stern, “I think if I weren’t vaccinated, I would have, like, died, because it was bad … When I say it was bad, I more just mean that it felt horrible. But really, in the scheme of COVID, it was not bad. You know what I mean? When you’re sick, you feel f—ing horrible.”
The U.S is currently facing a spike in the COVID-19 cases, with an increasing number of cases coming from the newly diagnosed contagious omicron variant. On Wednesday, the citizens were warned by the CDC of a potential jump in the cases this January 2022, due to the new variant where the first case has been identified in the US a week ago.
Anthony Fauci highlighted that despite growing cases for COVID-19, booster shots are highly effective in preventing severe illness among people.
“Our booster vaccine regimens work against omicron,” he said Wednesday, per The New York Times. “At this point, there is no need for a very specific booster. And so the message remains clear: If you are unvaccinated get vaccinated, and particularly in the arena of omicron if you are fully vaccinated, get your booster shot.”
