New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says pushing people back to work after a five-day COVID-19 quarantine is "sociopathic" and made the false assertion that Omicron is not mild despite science showing the opposite, as she says she has now healed from the virus.

The Democrat gave an update on Saturday after it was published on Monday, January 10, that she had tested positive for Coronavirus.

She posted three photos, one showing two positive test results, one of her cuddling up with her dog and a solo shot of her French bulldog Deco. "Welp, so it happened. Got COVID, probably Omicron. As of today I am thankfully recovered and wrapping up quarantine, but COVID was no joke," she started off the dull caption on Saturday.

AOC then argued that Omicron is not mild, despite the study that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported the variant doesn't seem to be as dangerous as the previous Delta variant.

"For a while I've noted the term 'mild' is misleading when the bar is hospitalization and death. Even 'mild' cases can result in long COVID, which includes a range of conditions like cognitive impairment, POTS, & chronic fatigue," AOC said about it.

The news of AOC's positive COVID test result came just a week after she was seen partying maskless at a Miami drag brunch on January 2.

The Bronx Representative, 32, made the remark on her official Twitter page on January 9, sharing a statement on a House of Representatives headed paper which said: "Representative Ocasio-Cortez has received a positive test result for COVID-19.

"She is experiencing symptoms and is recovering at home. The Congresswoman received her booster shot this Fall, and encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all CDC guidance."

AOC then added some of her own guidance in a follow-up tweet, writing: "For information on what to do if you're exposed to COVID, test positive or want to schedule a test or vaccine in New York City -- see our round-up of CDC and NYC resources here," before adding a link to a personal website.

Clinical reports suggest that Omicron patients cope far better than those with other variants, while research suggests that Omicron does not target tissues associated with worse disease outcomes, which is an encouraging prospect, according to The Scientist.

Omicron has proven also to have a shorter incubation period - defined as the time between becoming infected and symptom onset - of just two to four days.

Hospitalization and death rates are much lower for vaccinated people when compared to all other COVID-19 variants, the CDC reported earlier this month.
