After being diagnosed with COVID-19 on Tuesday, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice is recovering well, he said in a press release Thursday afternoon.
Justice continues to experience mild symptoms, but feels much better today. His monoclonal antibody treatment was received well and has begun to mitigate his symptoms.
“Thankfully, I am feeling much better today,” Justice said. “I desperately want to get out of this house and back to serving our state. I am not one to lay around.
“I deeply appreciate everyone’s prayers and well-wishes for my family and I this week. They mean more to Cathy and I than words can convey, and we will never forget them.
“Without question, the fact that I chose to get vaccinated and boosted saved my life, that’s all there is to it. So, now more than ever, I strongly encourage all West Virginians to protect themselves and their families by getting vaccinated.”
