Omicron ‘Patient Zero’ Doesn’t Think He Caught Virus Variant at Anime Convention

December 6, 2021

Peter McGinn was one of the first people in the U.S. to test positive for the Omicron COVID-19 variant after attending an anime convention in New York City. Now, he says that half the group he was regularly hanging out with during the trip — 15 people — have also gotten sick with the virus. He doesn’t think they got it at the convention, which was attended by 53,000 other fans, but rather at a karaoke bar in New York City. He says his symptoms were mild, which he attributes to the vaccine.
