Prayers don’t work. Vaccines do. This isn’t very complicated.
N.C. Rep. Keith Kidwell is hospitalized Friday after writing on Facebook that his wife, Viki, has COVID-19.
The Beaufort County Republican Party asked people to gather at 6:30 p.m. outside the Beaufort County Hospital to pray for the Kidwells, the hospital workers and other patients.
House Speaker Tim Moore confirmed Kidwell’s hospitalization to The News & Observer Friday afternoon but when asked about Kidwell’s condition and whether he too had the virus, Moore said, “I can’t say. We are checking.”
NC GOP Rep. Keith Kidwell hospitalized with Covid “has been vocal about not wearing a mask and is the chief sponsor of House Bill 572, which would not allow Gov. Roy Cooper to issue an executive order to require vaccination.”
