An anti-lockdown protest leader tested positive for COVID-19
Audrey Whitlock, the protest leader of the group ReOpen NC that went against the lockdown was tested positive for novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
When lockdown was implemented in the United States of America in order to hinder the spread of coronavirus, many citizens were against the said measure. Protests were help attacking the government for implementing the lockdown that for them is against their “human rights”.
“The reality is that modern society has not been able to eradicate contagious viruses. A typical public health quarantine would occur in a medical facility. I have been told not to participate in public or private accommodations as requested by the government, and therefore denied my 1st amendment right of freedom of religion,” the organizer of ReOpen NC previously posted on her social media account.
However, the protest leader in North Carolina stumbled upon a negative outcome for not following the said rule. Whitlock revealed in her recent Facebook post that the tested positive for COVID-19, based on the report from CBS 17.
She said that she is ending her two-week quarantine period after she tested positive. Whitlock also said that she is an “asymptomatic COVID-19 positive patient”.
She believed that she had the virus back in February. In her private message to their group’s Facebook Page, based on the report from WFAE, she said:
“When they started doing antibody testing (select labs) I went and had one done just out of curiosity to see if what I had in Feb was COVID. The test came back positive for COVID and negative for the antibodies, so I had a CDC test performed.”
The protest leader also said that she had the first-hand experience that the testing and tracing that NC Gov. Roy Cooper is talking about did not exist in her case
“After an abundance of caution I notified my primary care physician who advised me on what to do, and I have been in my house ever since!” she added.
Based on the report, Governor Cooper extended the stay-at-home order until May 8. Meanwhile, members of the protest group are already planning their third rally against lockdown on Tuesday.
