For quite some time now, people have heard from health officials about how great COVID vaccines are.
The healthcare community has touted these vaccines as a vital step towards putting the pandemic in the past; however, scores of vaccinated individuals are not stopping COVID at all.
In fact, COVID appears to be hitting vaccinated people like never before. Time and time again, Americans have heard about “breakthrough cases” where a vaccinated individual tests positive for the virus.
As Newsmax confirms, the latest person to suffer a breakthrough case is none other than House Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
What to Know About AOC Testing Positive for COVID
First and foremost, it’s critical to note that the congresswoman testing positive for COVID comes in spite of her having both of her original vaccine shots, in addition to her booster shot.
On Sunday, the congressional office of Ocasio-Cortez confirmed she is positive for the virus and furthermore wrestling with COVID symptoms.

Of course, the office of the congresswoman also made sure to laud the increasingly debated and questionable efficacy of these vaccines.
As a result of Ocasio-Cortez testing positive for coronavirus, she is spending time at home to quarantine and beat the virus. It is not currently public knowledge whether or not the congresswoman’s COVID symptoms are moderate or serious.
The news of the House Democrat testing positive for coronavirus comes as a series of vaccinated and boosted lawmakers (notably on the left) are getting infected.
More Controversy Surrounding AOC
Over the Christmas holiday break, Ocasio-Cortez and her boyfriend went down to Florida to vacation. Many Republicans noted this was hypocritical, given the congresswoman’s infamous criticisms of Florida’s leadership, governor, and policies.
Many folks on the right also questioned why Ocasio-Cortez chose to celebrate in Florida, rather than in her home state of New York that has all the mask mandates and vaccination mandates she advocates for.

Finally, the congresswoman also took heat after questioning the whereabouts of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who she claimed disappeared amid the omicron surge.
It later came out that DeSantis was with his wife, Casey DeSantis, as she was getting treatments for a recent cancer diagnosis. Following Ocasio-Cortez’s visit, the Florida governor’s office welcomed her to the free state that she has so often spoken out against.
The congresswoman is not alone, though. There are countless other Democrats and leftists who trash DeSantis and Florida, only to later visit and vacation there. The Florida governor has made it a point to note the outright hypocrisy of this.
