Congressman Clay Higgins revealed that he, his wife and son have contracted the coronavirus, which he called a “biological attack” by the Chinese Communist Party, in a Facebook after Sunday.
The US third-term representative from Louisiana said he and his fourth wife Becca had the virus earlier in January 2020 “before the world really knew what it was.”
“So this is our second experience with the CCP-armed biological attack virus…and this episode is much more challenging. It took all my dedicated energy.’
It is unclear whether Higgins or his family have been vaccinated.

The congressman appeared to be promoting the unproven theory that the virus was deliberately created and spread by the Chinese government.
The US and international agencies such as the World Health Organization are urging China to be more transparent about the origin of the virus as US intelligence agencies consider the theory that it may have escaped a lab in China.
The Delta variant of Covid-19, first identified in India, is “aggressive and much more transmissible than previously circulating strains,” said CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky at a briefing last week.
The variant is now responsible for most cases in the US, India, Israel and the UK.
Most hospitalizations and severe cases of Covid are among those who have not been vaccinated.
About 98 to 99 percent of Americans who die from the coronavirus have not been vaccinated, suggested former Covid-19 Biden administration adviser Andy Slavvit in June.
“We are all being looked after very well and our prognosis is positive,” Higgins told his followers on Sunday. “We are generally very healthy and our treatment of any health problem always includes western, eastern and holistic variables.”

Higgins, 59, did not respond to a CNN survey members of Congress ask about their vaccination status. Nearly half of Republicans did not respond to the survey.
His office did not immediately respond to inquiries from DailyMail.com.
in a editorial Speaking to The Daily American in April, Higgins said his office had “aggressively promoted” the availability of vaccines and called their development “scientifically sound,” though he was skeptical of their safety.
He claimed he and his wife had “naturalized immunity” to the virus last year.
Higgins’ wife, Becca, underwent eight to 10 hours of treatment that was similar to “chemotherapy” for multiple sclerosis, according to a May 2018 Facebook post.
“I love you and respect you all,” Higgins wrote on Sunday.
“I am honored and humbled to serve you in Congress. Our mission will continue. My family and I will make a full recovery. Your prayerful support is felt deep in my family and will never be forgotten.”
Higgins, a former law enforcement officer, has represented Louisiana’s 3rd congressional district since 2017.
