Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) Sunday evening that he and his wife have contracted COVID-19 for a second time and "this episode is far more challenging."
Driving the news: "Becca and I had COVID before, early on, in January 2020, before the world really knew what it was," he wrote in a Facebook post, confirming his son also has the coronavirus — which he described as a "biological attack weaponized virus."
- This time round, the virus has "required all of my devoted energy," he said.
- "We are all under excellent care, and our prognosis is positive," Higgins added. "We are very healthy generally speaking, and our treatment of any health concern always encompasses western, eastern, and holistic variables."
Of note: Higgins has advocated for people to get inoculated against the coronavirus but hasn't publicly stated whether has been vaccinated, per NBC News.
- He told Lake Charles, Louisiana, news outlet the Daily American in April that he believed he was "naturally immunized" because he had already contracted the virus.
