Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Anime convention attendee who became one of first Omicron cases speaks out”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Minneapolis man who tested positive for the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in one of the US’s first cases has spoken out, saying it had not “crossed my mind” that he might have been exposed to the virus.

Peter McGinn, 30, who is fully vaccinated and received a booster shot, said he went out following the Anime NYC 2021 event at the Javits Center last month to a bar with several other vaccinated attendees, half of whom have since tested positive for the virus, ABC News reported.

“I felt perfectly safe with the people that I was with, and so it never really crossed my mind to think that I had COVID,” McGinn, a health care analyst, told the network Sunday. “I was just a little taken aback.”

McGinn said after returning to Minneapolis from the trip, he learned that a friend with whom he had attended the convention contracted the virus.

On Nov. 23, McGinn took an at-home test that showed he was positive for the virus. He then went to a large testing site for a PCR test that confirmed his result.
