Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong’o is urging everyone to get vaccinated and to wear their masks, after she tested positive for Covid-19.

“I too have tested positive for COVID-19. I’m fully vaccinated and taking care in isolation, so I trust I will be well. Please do all you can to keep yourself and others protected from serious illness,” she tweeted along with the hashtag #StayMaskedAndVaxxed.

Nyong’o has since been forced to cancel virtual interviews for her new movie “The 355.”

We wish the “Black Panther” actress a speedy recovery.

Several other celebrities have announced testing positive for the virus this year, including Whoopi Goldberg and DJ Kay Slay.

On Tuesday, President Joe Biden once again labeled the spread as a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

“There is no excuse — no excuse for anyone being unvaccinated,” Biden said during remarks from the White House following a briefing from his COVID-19 response team. “This continues to be a pandemic of the unvaccinated. So we got to make more progress.”

But those who have been vaccinated are still getting sick.

The U.S. recorded its record number of COVID-19 cases for a single day on Monday. About 73% of the U.S. population is at least partially vaccinated and 62% fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

“Omicron is a very transmissible, transmissible variant, but much different than anything we’ve seen before,” Biden said. “You can protect yourself, and you should protect yourself, quite frankly. Get vaccinated, get boosted. There are plenty of booster shots. Wear a mask while you’re in public.”

Biden issued another stern warning: “Many of you will, you know, you’ll experience severe illness in many cases if you get COVID-19 if you are not vaccinated,” Biden said. “Some will die, needlessly die. Unvaccinated are taking up hospital beds and crowding emergency rooms and intensive care units.”
