Virginia Gov. Northam Still Can’t Smell or Taste a Year After Getting COVID-19

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam says he still can’t smell or taste a year after a bout with COVID-19.

The Democratic governor said he and his wife Pam still haven’t fully recovered since both tested positive last September.

“We still have some lasting symptoms,” Northam told WTTG-TV (Channel 5) on Tuesday. “I’m just fortunate that nothing worse happened.”

Northam, who is also a medical doctor, has recently expressed his frustration over vaccine holdouts as the state’s cases and related deaths continue to mount.

As of Wednesday, roughly 80% of Virginia residents 18 and older have gotten at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, but only 60% of the state’s population is fully vaccinated, according to state health department data.

“Everyone needs to realize that the only way we’re going to get this behind us is if people get the shot,” Northam told WTTG.
