NBC DOCTOR FAKED? 🔊: Dr. Joseph Fair, an NBC medical correspondent, claimed to have been diagnosed with COVID-19 despite multiple reported negative tests. Newsmax TV's @seanspicer investigates.
NBC and MSNBC asserted contributor Dr. Joseph Fair was suffering or recovering from coronavirus 10 different times over the last two months, but he's tested negative for the virus's antibodies and now says the illness that hospitalized him is a mystery.
Doctors assumed Dr. Joseph Fair had the coronavirus when he was severely sick in May. But with a negative antibody test, his illness "remains an undiagnosed mystery."
Virologist and epidemiologist Dr. Joseph Fair has been hospitalized with coronavirus and believes it came in through his eyes. Days after being on a plane that “had us packed in like sardines," he got sick with flu-like symptoms that gradually worsened.
"There's always a learning curve ... every time a new one comes up, especially if it's a new virus with which we are not familiar, then there's going to be new protocols," Dr. Joseph Fair, virologist and infectious disease specialist, tells @maddow .
Officials in Nassau County are monitoring 83 people in voluntary isolation who may have been exposed to COVID-19. Dr. Joseph Fair and @AliVelshi discuss how COVID-19 can be transmitted in daily life and how the US can prepare.
