President-Elect Luke tests positive for COVID-19; mild symptoms reported

BRAN DISTRICT – President Elect Stephen Luke reported having COVID-19 symptoms approximately four days ago, which included a fever, cough, headache, and body aches.

Today, Luke went to receive his fourth COVID test, which resulted in a positive result. Luckily, due to his symptoms being mild, his fever breaking and his self quarantine, recovery appears to be making an upward trajectory.

According to Luke, a family member at the Christmas party he attended tested positive the day after the party, prompting him to take action in getting tested. Since symptoms began four days ago, Luke has six days left in quarantine before he is considered not contagious.

Medical staff have stated that while the new variant Omicron is more contagious, it is less severe regarding symptoms. Those who are vaccinated have a smaller chance at being hospitalized, according to world statistics.

The inauguration of Luke-Modena is still expected to take place on Jan 6, via video call for all participating. Broadcast will take place at noon on the Dracul KBRN YouTube channel.
