Singapore’s anti-vax evangelist has never been happier to test positive for a virus that has killed millions worldwide. 

Iris Koh last evening posted her excitement about catching COVID-19 from her husband, who was infected recently.

“I’m very happy to announce that after many days of living with a Covid Positive spouse, I’m finally tested positive today!” she wrote.

Koh, who was charged in January with conspiring to falsify vaccination records and tearing up a police statement, said she still has her sense of smell and taste and is “mostly feeling quite ok.”

She insinuated that the virus was “mild” and said she didn’t understand why the public would get vaccinated.

On Monday, she broke the news that her husband had been infected but she was testing negative despite getting “fever and body aches.”

Koh is also under investigation for interfering with official duties by attempting to disrupt operations at pediatric vaccination centers and flooding public health hotlines

Singapore has been recording its highest number of cases since the start of the year. Yesterday, the nation reported close to 16,000 cases and six deaths, though only 231 were in need of urgent medical care. Nearly all of the population (92%) has been vaccinated with 70% having received booster shots.
