Poor Ringo: Famed Beatle Tests Positive Again for COVID, Whole Tour Cancelled


Ringo thought he was negative the other day and his tour was back on. Alas, he says now he’s positive again, and the whole tour is cancelled.

I’m so glad I saw him when I did a few weeks ago. Ringo is a legend, and a hero. Wishing him all the best getting well. This does sound like he got Paxlovid, everyone gets COVID again, it seems, after taking the drug.

But you know what? He’ll get buy with a little help from his friends.
