BLINKs have taken over Twitter to wish the idol a quick recovery. They shared supportive words in the hopes of giving her strength. According to many, the BLACKPINK member has been fully vaccinated, and has had a breakthrough case. A breakthrough case is a person who contracts the virus despite being fully vaccinated. Knowing that the member received both doses of vaccine gives some relief to fans.

YG Entertainment did not reveal when her symptoms started or whether the member was asymptomatic or not. However, fans’ concerns for the artist and the rest of the members are understandably at an all-time high, at least until the agency releases a statement regarding the other three members.

The news has brought with it hatred too. Some netizens blame the member for partying in Los Angeles, speculating that she caught the virus abroad. An Instagram account of a probable YG staff shared the BLACKPINK member’s photo, sharing more information regarding the situation. She added in her caption that the idol “was infected in Korea, not America.” The account holder has turned off comments on the post.

lisa didn’t get covid bc of ‘partying in la’ how hard is it to comprehend that u need a negative test before and after flying😭
Nothing frustrates me more that some ppl be blaming L for getting COVID. THE VIRUS BEEN WALKING ON EARTH FOR 2 YEARS NOW AND YA'LL STILL DO NOT KNOW HOW IT WORKS?
@chaedeluxe Guys just pray for her recovery. Stop the fight. One can get covid just by sitting at their house too
lisa didn’t get the virus in la. you need a negative test before and after flying. 2 years of dealing with this virus how hard it is still for yall to understand
PRAYING FOR FAST RECOVERY FOR LISA AND NEGATIVE RESULT FOR JENNIE, ROSÉ AND JISOO! https://t.co/7MWNU2oFZK
ⓘ This user hopes that lisa, jisoo, jennie, and rosé are safe.

Fans worldwide hope the artist has a swift recovery and the remaining members’ tests come out negative.
