Governor Eric Holcomb and First Lady Janet Holcomb have tested negative for COVID-19.

The Governor and First Lady began quarantining on Tuesday, Nov. 17, after several members of their security detail tested positive for COVID-19 and they were determined to be close contacts of the infected individuals.

The couple received both an Abbott rapid test and a nasopharyngeal PCR test, and had negative results on both. They are doing well and are not experiencing symptoms.

Per the advice of Indiana Health Commissioner Dr. Kris Box and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Lindsay Weaver, the Governor and First Lady will not be tested again unless they develop symptoms.

They will continue their 14-day quarantine and can resume a normal schedule with masking and social distancing on Tuesday, Dec. 1.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website disclosed the shockingly small number of people who died from only the Wuhan coronavirus, with no other cause of death mentioned. Hold on to your hat because here it is: out of the 161,392 deaths in the CDC data, just six percent, about 9,700 deaths, were attributed to the coronavirus alone. According to the CDC, the other 94 percent had an average of 2.6 additional conditions or causes of deaths, such as heart disease, diabetes, and sepsis.
It very difficult to square the actions of government with the minuscule number of deaths that can be attributed to the Wuhan flu only. People die each yer from a lot of different reasons. Older people wit the co-morbidity also die with bad colds and regular flu. But instead of protecting the vulnerable we punish EVERYONE with stupid rules that are of no help at all. That mask we all wear is merely a method to convince everyone to COMPLY with government edicts. It is a conditioning scheme to get us to go along with more serious tyranny coming down the pike. If Joe and the ho tell you to give up your freedom of speech, religion, or firearms will you comply just because they say it is for the greater good?? Will they have any more evidence that for their maskerade??
