Posted February 20, 2022 by with 6 comments

Despite what most politicians and the right wing media would have you believe, COVID is of course nowhere near over, with at least 2,000 unvaccinated people in the United States dying from it every day. The Queen of England and Justin Bieber are the latest high profile infections making headlines today. The Queen’s case, via CNN:

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for coronavirus, Buckingham Palace announced Sunday.

The 95-year-old sovereign — who is celebrating her 70th year on the throne — is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week, the palace said.

“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all appropriate guidelines,” it added.

UK media have reported that the Queen is fully vaccinated. Buckingham Palace previously confirmed both the monarch and her late husband, Prince Philip, had received their first doses of a Covid-19 vaccine in January 2021. But the palace has declined to reveal any information about subsequent vaccinations, citing medical privacy.

And Bieber’s case, which has led to concert delays, via Deadline:

Justin Bieber has contracted the Covid-19 virus, causing him to postpone his scheduled show tonight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Bieber tested positive as of Saturday, but reportedly is feeling okay. He has a show scheduled for Glendale, Arizona on Tuesday, but it’s unclear as to whether that will move forward. The Las Vegas show will be made up during the summer, according to representatives. His “The Justice World Tour” began Friday night in San Diego.
