Following a breakthrough case of Covid-19, morning anchor Fred Blankenship of WSB-TV in Atlanta has returned to the news desk.

The Telegraph had the initial report and points out that Soul II Soul’s ‘Keep on Movin” is playing in the background. Blankenship was previously vaccinated for the virus and his breakthrough case was contracted while on vacation in California.

“We took all the precautions, got the vaccinations and it still happened,” he said after the initial diagnois.

“We quarantined, tested like crazy and hoped for the best. Breakthrough positives as they are known are very real.”
