BERKELEY, CA – The University of California Berkeley was forced to cancel their upcoming game against the University of Southern California after 44 members of the team tested positive for COVID-19. This happened despite the fact that 99% of the team had been vaccinated.
“Cal football players are 99% vaccinated, but their football game against USC was just canceled because of covid,” tweeted Fox News personality Clay Travis. “You guys need to realize that the coronabros aren’t ever going to quit. You have to fight them with every ounce of your ability.”
This came after the Berkeley Department of Public Health confirmed to The San Francisco Gate that 44 players had tested positive.
“Berkeley Public Health continues to work closely with University Health Services to help contain and respond to a major COVID-19 outbreak involving the coaches, students, and staff in the Cal Football program,” the statement began. “All of these 44 lab-confirmed cases involve people infected with highly contagious COVID-19, which spreads easily unless public health safeguards are used.”
