When Ken McElroy decided to go to Belize after a business trip to Miami last June, he wasn’t worried about contracting Covid-19, he said.
The real estate investment company CEO was flying privately to both places — plus, he’s vaccinated.
“I was like, there’s no way I’ll get it,” he told CNBC.
His fiancee, Danille Underwood, wasn’t as confident, said McElroy.
After 10 days in Belize, the couple took Covid tests the day before their flight back to Arizona. Though he was feeling tired and she had a cough, both were surprised when their tests came back positive.
