Greek Minister Georgiadis – Vacccinated – Gets Mild COVID Case

July 27, 2021

ATHENS – Greek Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis said he tested positive for COVID-19 after appearing on a TV show but that he expects it will be mild because he is fully vaccinated.

There are rare cases of breakthrough infections among the vaccinated that are far less serious than for the unvaccinated who could become ill enough to be hospitalized, put on ventilators or even perish from the Coronavirus.

Anti-vaxxers don't believe the vaccines are safe or effective or that they are part of an international conspiracy to alter their DNA or control their minds although they have worked to drastically reduce cases and also deaths in Greece.

On Twitter, Georgiadis said that after running a fever the night after going on TV that he took a PCR rapid test which showed positive. He had taken the test before going on the show and it was negative although it wasn't said if he may have contracted the infection there.

“I’m almost 49 years old and the only reason I know that I will have a mild case is the fact that I’m fully vaccinated,” the minister tweeted, urging everyone – especially those older than him – to get vaccinated fast to protect themselves.
