On Sunday, a young journalist from Canada was in the middle of a live broadcast when she suddenly experienced a medical emergency.
Jessica Robb, who was reporting on the scene for the Canadian news station CTV, started slurring, going blank on words, and looked like she was about to collapse live during the live broadcast while she was in the middle of a dialogue with the anchor Nahreman Issa.
CTV immediately cut the program.

Jessica Robb issued a statement before going private with her account.
“I won’t bury the lede: l’m okay. Thank you to everyone who has reached [out], my cameraman [Sean McClune] for being there for me, & [Nahreman Issa] for being an absolute pro (as usual),” Robb wrote.
Social media users found it suspicious that she suddenly made her Twitter profile private.

Her COVID vaccination was widely suspected by social media users to be the cause of her sudden illness.
Back in April, Robb tweeted that she was thankful she received her third shot of the COVID vaccine after she got infected with Covid.
“Consider this my official out of (the physical) office. Feeling very lucky to be vaxxed ×3 & that I started isolating as soon as symptoms started,” she wrote.
