BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a statement from her office.
According to a statement, the congresswoman is recovering from the virus at home and is experiencing symptoms. Ocasio-Cortez received her booster shot in the fall, according to the statement.
The positive coronavirus test comes shortly after the congresswoman was seen without a mask in a Miami bar, according to video that circulated on social media.
“For the record, I did not catch the virus at a Miami bar as many has implied,” she later tweeted. “The truth is, I had symptoms before I took the trip, and if anything, I gave it to other unsuspecting passengers on the plane, because I wasn’t wearing a mask there either.”
