Last week on High Plains Morning, we had a delightful visit from Marcy McKay, an Amarillo-based author and regular HPPR Radio Readers Book Club contributor about her latest book, When Life Feels Like a House Fire: Transforming Your COVID-19 Stress.

LIBERAL, Kansas — Una mujer piensa que la pandemia de la COVID-19 fue planeada, hecha por el hombre.

Un hombre no se inocula porque sospecha que otros países usan a los estadounidenses como sujetos de estudio para sus vacunas.

Tres cuartos de este grupo de enfoque que se reúnen en un centro comunitario en Liberal, habían oído que las vacunas podrían contener microchips para que el gobierno pueda rastrear a la gente, a pesar de que la mayoría dice que ya no creen en ese mito.

LIBERAL, Kansas — One woman thinks the COVID-19 pandemic was planned, man-made.

A man won’t get inoculated because he suspects other countries are using Americans as test subjects for their vaccines.

Three-fourths of this focus group gathered at a Liberal community center had heard the shots might contain microchips so the government can track people, even if most said they don’t buy that myth anymore.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has tested positive for the coronavirus, becoming the first U.S. governor known to have been infected during the COVID-19 crisis.

Stitt, a Republican, disclosed his illness during a press conference Wednesday over Zoom. He said that he had been tested the day before and that he has been getting tested periodically.

"I feel fine. I felt a little bit achy yesterday, didn't have a fever but just a little bit achy," the governor said. "So just did my regular testing, and it came back positive."
