ancing with the Stars’ pro-Cheryl Burke reveals breakthrough Covid.
Cheryl Burke, a pro dancer on “Dancing with the Stars,” announced in a tearful Instagram post on Sunday that she tested positive for Covid-19 despite having vaccinated.
The 37-year-old dancer,
who is partnered with Peloton instructor Cody Rigsby,
described her experience of being tested in the morning and receiving the results of her breakthrough infection in the afternoon — just one day before the live competition was scheduled to film a new episode Monday.
She added, “The PCR test came back, and it came back positive.”
“I’m really sorry for Cody. I’m afraid I’m disappointing him.
To be honest, I simply feel likes—-. And it’s especially stressful since it’s Sunday and the performance is the next day.
“I thought I should let you guys know,” she added, “because I’ve been as honest, genuine,
and vulnerable as I could be here.” I really hope I didn’t transmit it to anybody else. It’s f——— real, man, for those of you who don’t believe Covid is a genuine thing.
It was uncertain if Rigsby would perform alongside someone else.

A request for comment from ABC was not immediately returned on Monday.
Burke said she the two-shot Moderna vaccination and “completely immunized.”
Breakthrough infections do not always imply that vaccinations are ineffective.
Experts say no vaccination is 100 percent effective, so they’re anticipating.
Severe breakthrough infections, on the other hand, are uncommon, according to statistics.
Researchers in the United Kingdom examined data from the ZOE Covid Study,
a project in which participants report symptoms, vaccination status,
and other demographic information daily through an app, in a study, published this month in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.
The researchers examined data from over 1 million individuals gathered between December 2020 and July 2021, a timeframe that included both the alpha and delta variant waves in the United Kingdom.
Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or AstraZeneca vaccinations were given in two doses to the participants.
A breakthrough infection report by fewer than 0.2 percent of the participants,
with such instances occurring more often in those who were previously deemed susceptible,
such as the elderly or those with underlying diseases.
The majority of breakthrough infections were minor; only 6% of individuals with breakthrough infections reported symptoms.
Furthermore, immunization has been found to reduce hospitalization risk by more than two-thirds.
The research also discovered that completely immunized individuals had a 50% lower risk of getting long Covid.
People with protracted Covid have symptoms of the disease for at least a month,
and often much longer, following infection, such as cognitive fog, fatigue, and a racing heart.
A very low incidence of breakthrough infections also seen in two additional trials released this month.
The first study, which publishes in JAMA Network Open,
looked at outbreaks among Israel’s more than 5,300 vaccinated healthcare professionals. Only 27 infections of this kind were discovered.
There is no fatalities record and just one patient admitted to the hospital.
The research conduct, however, before the delta variation became the prevalent strain in Israel.
The second study, which publishes in the New England Journal of Medicine,
found 94 symptomatic breakthrough infections among over 16,000 healthcare employees.
The research, which lasted until July,
discovered that as the delta variation became more prevalent, breakthroughs rose.
Burke said in her video that she quarantine for ten days.
“I’d told to remain at home,” she said. “I’m going to bed.” I’m not sure how this occurred.
