The AOC has been charged with Covid after being burned for partying without a mask while in Miami.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has tested positive for the deadly virus, according to an announcement from her office.
“The Ocasio-Cortez representative received a positive test result for COVID-19. She is experiencing symptoms and recovering at home,” it read.
“Congresswoman received booster shots this Fall, and encourages people to get booster shots and Follow all CDC guidelines. ”
Ocasio-Cortez was discovered last week no mask while on vacation in Miami. A short clip posted on social media shows the congresswoman waving to passersby to cheer and clap.
She was seen hugging a drag performer at an outdoor event hosted by actor Billy Porter.
Ocasio-Cortez has a history of criticizing Florida for its lax COVID-19 restrictions during early pandemic waves.
Conservative reporters have called the New York representative “hypocritical”.
“The AOC is STILL waiting for it in Florida, in a large crowd and without a mask. This time at a Drag Queen bar in Miami. Rules for you but not for me,” wrote the journalist Brendon Leslie.
“For those of you with no sense of humour: the whole point of this post is to expose hypocrisy,” adds Leslie. “We really don’t care she’s not wearing a mask. We care that she scares people who expect Florida but then has the guts to vacation here. “
In Florida, there is currently no mask regulation. However, the number of COVID-19 infections has increased significantly in the state with the highest number in the country.
On January 1, 56,865 new cases were reported in the state. More than 75,900 cases were reported a day earlier.
“Welcome to Florida, AOC!” tweeted official team to Governor Ron DeSantis after photos emerged of Ocasio-Cortez during lunch in Miami without a mask.
“We hope you are enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to the leadership of @RonDeSantisFL.”
