When asked about her accusation by NBC-affiliate 11Alive News
, Greene stood by her claim, insisting that anyone who received a positive COVID-19 test result has Pelosi to blame. “Healthy people do not spread COVID. COVID positive people spread COVID,” she said in a statement. “Everyone was exposed ALL week by the COVID positive members who Nancy Pelosi brought into the Capitol and into Washington DC. It is absolutely ridiculous and insane to blame those of us who did not have COVID or symptoms…It’s absurd to say they caught it during the safe room.” Greene failed to mention that the idea that a person must exhibit symptoms in order to carry coronavirus has been disproven by medical experts, who say that it is common for people to be asymptomatic and spread the virus unknowingly.
