On August 7, 2020, Kentucky Congressman claimed that he recovered from Wuhan virus and tested for antibodies.
He went on the Glenn Beck Program that day and said he has plans of donating plasma to help others combat the virus. He was sure to have contracted the virus on January when it was starting to spread across the world.
“I’ve had the ‘Rona, and I have recovered from it,” Massie stated. “And the titer of my antibodies indicates I have three times the level that’s required to donate plasma, so I would happily do that to help anybody I can.”
Massie claimed that he requested and eventually received the antibody test on July 31 while being tested for the active Wuhan virus. He received his results August 6.
“I was laid out for four days,” Massie recounted. “No energy. This was the end of the Christmas recess. A fever, a sore throat, I laid on the couch for four days because this is before we knew what ‘Rona was, but I knew I had something, and I didn’t want to give it to my family.”
Massie said that he went to the doctor’s office because of the degree of sickness he felt, which he claims to have never experienced in 10 to 15 years. He ended up receiving an antibiotic shot and an antihistamine. “Within a day” he claims to have been feeling better.
According to a New York Times report, medical experts were able to track traces of the Wuhan virus in the U.S. that could have reached the country back in January or December. However, those cases were largely confined to the coastal areas of the U.S.
Massie made waves back in March when he criticized the lack of a transparent congressional vote on the $2.2 trillion CARES Act, which passed during the economic downturn caused by the Wuhan virus pandemic.
Despite widespread condemnation from the mainstream media and President Donald Trump, Massie went on to smash his opponent in the District 4 primary and will likely go on to win resoundingly in the 2020 general election.
Massie has set the tone for what liberty conservatism looks like and other reps should do their best to follow his lead. The country would be in much better shape if they did so.
