The United States has identified its first case of the Omicron COVID variant in California, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.
National radio host Todd Starnes slammed the Biden administration.
“That’s what happens when you don’t shut down your borders immediately,” Starnes said.
White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said the infected person, who was fully vaccinated, returned from South Africa to the San Francisco area on Nov. 22 and tested positive Monday.
“Wait – the patient was fully vaccinated?” Starnes questioned, adding, “So which is worse – catching the virus from a fully vaccinated person or unvaccinated person?”
Fauci said the person is self-quarantining while giving an update during the White House press briefing.
“We feel good that this patient not only had mild symptoms, but actually the symptoms appear to be improving,” he said.
