Kristy Swanson portrayed the movie version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer back in 1993. She’s also regularly appeared in made for TV movies from The Hallmark Channel and Lifetime.
Swanson is also a Conservative. And like many others who identify as Republicans, she has attempted to downplay the seriousness of COVID-19. But according to an update from her Twitter page, Swanson is now in the hospital with COVID pneumonia.
The actress tweeted today:
“Prayers for me please. Yesterday I took an ambulance ride to the hospital. I’m still here with pneumonia, I’m on oxygen etc, all covid related of course. I’m in good spirits and in great hands. Thank you all for the prayers it truly means a lot to me. I can feel it. Just little more clarification & update, I was just at the tail end of my Covid diagnosis when it jumped into my lungs. So they are treating me with Baricitinib & blood thinners so I don’t clot. I’m ok.”

Users were quick to point out the times that Swanson posted about COVID. One post from September 29th, shared by Mel Ankoly, read, “Oh I see, so it behaves just like the flu. Ever year, a new flu strain arises and a new vaccine comes out for it, if you wan to get one. That’s exactly what this whole thing is, except this time they want to mandate vaccines so they can make mo-money.”
You'll be alright, Kristy, it's just like the flu.
You know, the flu known for causing people to have to take ambulances to the hospital and get put on oxygen.🙄 pic.twitter.com/EpUZa2mAGZ
