Indiana’s state health commissioner, Dr. Kris Box, announced Wednesday morning that she has COVID-19, again. Box has had coronavirus before, but said in a news release from the state Dept. of Health, that she tested positive again Tuesday morning.

Box took a rapid test and then a PCR test, which will also tell if she has the Omicron variant.

The state’s seven-day positivity rate is now 20.5 percent, with over 8,500 cases reported Tuesday.

Box is one of more than 113,000 Hoosiers to be reinfected with COVID-19, since Jan. 18, 2021.

“She was experiencing symptoms including muscle aches, chills, coughing and a sore throat and was isolating at home,” said the news release. “She will follow the isolation guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which call for her to isolate for five full days and allow her to return to work fully masked on the sixth day if her symptoms are improving.”

Box said last week that Hoosiers should protect themselves from COVID-19 by wearing a mask in public.

“Box said last week that Hoosiers should protect themselves from COVID-19 by wearing a mask in public.”

What a load of BS, doubling down on the lies. Masks don’t work, the CDC has even tacitly admitted as much. It’s simple math and physics.

Get another booster Mrs. Fauci….. CLUELESS!!! Maybe you should look at the vax as a HOAX…. Just like the rest of the propaganda you spread.

I wonder…was Dr. Kris Box wearing a mask in public? If so, how did she contract COVID-19 again? If not, why not?

She doubles down on methods that simply are not working. That is called Insanity in a sane world. it takes all my training to be kind to not laugh out loud at her situation. Since I had Covid and recovered without any of the BS Dr. Box pronouncements who realty cares. Get well soon physically if not mentally. you are beyond hope mentally.

It doesn’t mention any vaccines or boosters she might have received. You can be sure if she hadn’t been stuck they would have. Instead she showed why she doesn’t have a practice. She trusts masks. I’m wondering if she actually ever had it. Really how would we really know unless the sense of smell and taste buds don’t work. Goofballs.
