U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy announced Friday that he tested positive for COVID-19.
Article by Jack Phillips from our premium news partners at The Epoch Times.
Murthy, who is fully vaccinated, said that his wife and 4-year-old son also tested positive for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus and developed mild symptoms. Previously, he announced his 5-year-old daughter contracted the virus and is now recovering.
“Update: my 5 year old son, my wife Alice, and I have all tested positive for COVID-19. Our son has a runny nose and low grade fever but is otherwise eating, drinking, playing with his sister, and watching his favorite cartoons,” Murthy wrote. “My four year old daughter who tested positive first is doing ok. Fevers are starting to improve. She’s still congested and is now hoarse from all the coughing, but thankfully she’s still smiling and enjoying her arts and crafts.”

Murthy, who confirmed his symptoms are “mild,” also wrote that “when you’ve been as safe as you can, getting COVID-19 can be frustrating and disappointing. I’ve felt that. It can also be a source of shame. Many people assume you must have been careless to get sick. Our safety measures reduce risk but they can’t eliminate risk. Nothing can.”
As numerous studies have shown the COVID-19 Omicron variant is highly infectious and easily infects vaccinated individuals, it’s not clear why he suggested that one would feel shame for contracting a highly contagious virus.
Murthy, who previously mounted a defense of the Biden administration’s controversial vaccine mandate for private businesses with 100 or more workers, recommended on Friday that people get the vaccine and a booster if eligible.
His positive COVID-19 test comes as a number of Democrat-led states and municipalities have started to rescind vaccine or mask mandates. In the past week, authorities in Washington and Philadelphia announced they would end their vaccine passport rules for restaurants and other venues—for now.
And this month, so far, the governors of New Jersey, California, Oregon, Connecticut, and Delaware have announced plans to roll back mask mandates. However, some of the states will still require masks in schools.
On Wednesday, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walenksy told reporters that the Atlanta-based health agency is not considering changing its mask recommendation and mandate for public transportation. Walensky’s rationale was that the agency, under its 2020 guidelines, will only do so if community transmission drops.
“We recognize the importance of not just cases, which continue to result in substantial or high community transmission and over 97 percent of our counties in the country, but critically, medically severe disease that leads to hospitalizations,” she said.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
