  • Beijing appears to retract vaccine mandate after pushback

    Daily Mail ^ | 8 July 2022
    The Chinese capital Beijing appears to have backed off a plan to launch a vaccine mandate for entry into certain public spaces after pushback from residents. While not explicitly saying it had dropped the plan, a city official was quoted in state media late Thursday saying that people could enter venues with a negative virus test result and a temperature check, as has been the norm. They also said vaccinations would continue on the principle of "informed, voluntary consent." An unidentified official in the pandemic control office said residents of the city could enter any sort of public venue with...

    So, you got a positive result on your home test for Covid-19. What do you do next? In addition to everything else on your plate — isolating and notifying close contacts, taking time off work and rescheduling appointments — it’s good practice to report your test results. And while home tests have made it easier and faster to screen yourself and get treatment, it is not always easy to report an illness. This confusion has meant that many cases are left out of official counts. If you test positive at a clinic or another community testing site, those results must...

O’Rourke said he tested negative on Sunday before getting a positive test on Monday.

    Soon, most travellers entering Canada will not have to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test, CTV News has learned. As of April 1, the federal government will be lifting the pre-arrival COVID-19 testing requirement at the border for fully vaccinated travellers. Passengers may still be subjected to random PCR testing at the airport, and travellers will still have to use the ArriveCAN app to enter their proof of vaccination and other required information, Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, Transport Minister Omar Alghabra and Tourism Minister Randy Boissonnault will be announcing the latest easing of pandemic travel restrictions on Thursday. As...

    CINCINNATI (WXIX/Gray News) - Officials are advising parents to keep at-home COVID-19 test kits away from kids because they could contain a harmful, toxic substance. The Cincinnati Drug and Poison Information Center is reporting an uptick in accidental exposures to a possibly toxic substance in at-home COVID-19 test kits, the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center said in a blog post on its website. Poison control centers nationwide are reporting the same finding, WXIX reported. This comes as more than 50 million households recently received free at-home COVID-19 tests from the federal government, according to Dr. Tom Inglesby, senior advisor for...

    As if there wasn’t enough sketchy stuff amid positive HIV tests as a result of the COVID-19 vaccination program, apparently now there’s a vaccine induced positive syphilis result. ... ... I guess that’s why they call it “practicing” medicine. On a serious note, it would be interesting to see what the difference is between people who took the vaccine and the percentage of people who then took the booster shot(s) after adverse vaccine events began getting recorded. Are there a lot of people who took the original vaccine, but later wouldn’t continue taking the booster shots?

    How convenient when a bureaucratic body has the power to switch COVID standards at the drop of a hat in order to allow it to continue moving forward and not shut down as the rest of us have been forced to do. COVID Standards around testing and quarantine rules are going from asinine and impossible to achieve to almost gone in the blink of an eye. Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced last week he was doing away with all COVID precautions from vaccine mandates to mask wearing, and instead, would rely on the judgement of its citizens to protect...

    This is a video of a black LED light over a NHS lateral flow test that has not been used to determine if some is Covid positive. As we can see in the video the tests are already have a pre determined mark on them if you are a positive or not. This explains a lot of the mixed results from multiple tests. https://youtu.be/GJkmBAP0IPY This is how an assay test works.There is a control line (C) and a Test line (T). You usually place 3 drops of urineor other fluid onto the test strip to obtain a result. The Test...

Prayers up that the DailyExpose will continue to survive Paypal's effort at censorship.Since the beginning of the pandemic, experts have warned that the PCR test is not a valid diagnostic tool and produces far too many false positives, as it can pick up on “dead,” nonreplicating viral debris. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) now admits the PCR test cannot identify active infection or measure contagiousness.A PCR test cannot distinguish between “live” viruses and inactive, non-infectious, viral particles.

    Amid a surge in Covid-19 cases across the country, fueled in large part by the spread of the new Omicron variant, at-home testing kits are nearly impossible to find in some areas. That makes the Biden administration’s new deal with a pharmaceutical company to increase production welcome news…except for one major catch. The $137 million contract with Millipore Sigma, a unit of Germany's Merck KGaA, to build a factory for making Covid-19 test strip materials won’t be ready for at least three years, the company said, according to Fox News, doing nothing to alleviate the current demand. The move also...

    The president said he was on the phone most of the day to discuss a plan to make 500 million at-home rapid tests available to Americans via direct order to address the spike in infections caused by the Omicron variant. Key details of the program, which was unveiled last week, remain unknown. For example, it is unclear how many tests each household will be allowed to request. Nor is it known how quickly they will be mailed or when a website will be launched for people to order tests.

    Rapid tests causing grief in state with highest vaccination rate. Emergency rooms in Vermont are being overwhelmed with people who have tested positive for COVID but have no symptoms, bolstering the criticism that mass testing amid a pandemic is counterproductive. Vermont, with about 77% of the population vaccinated, has the nation's highest rate.. Vermonters who take the rapid tests and test positive for COVID-19 are "clogging up emergency rooms." Dr. Rick Hildebrant, medical director of the emergency department at the Rutland Regional Medical Center, said people should go to the ER only if they have a positive test and are...

    Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) is the latest lawmaker to announce he has tested positive for COVID-19. In a statement on Thursday, Coons said after testing regularly for COVID-19 in recent weeks with rapid and PCR tests, he received a positive diagnosis Wednesday night. “I have minimal symptoms so far and am optimistic I will recover well after isolating and following CDC guidelines. Like millions of other families, it seems we’ll also be wrestling with another holiday spent on Zoom and cancelled plans for travel or gathering,” he said.

    The Biden administration has warned COVID-19 test makers and labs that demand for tests could soon double or even triple, five people familiar with the situation told Politico. The Health and Human Services Department’s Testing and Diagnostic Working Group shared an internal model with the diagnostic industry that projects the country needing more COVID-19 tests on top of the more than 1.6 million currently used daily. The model shows 3 million to 5 million daily tests needed by January or February, an estimate that makes the assumption the omicron variant is three to five times more transmissible than delta and...

    Web infrastructure company Cloudflare on Wednesday revealed that threat actors are actively attempting to exploit a second bug disclosed in the widely used Log4j logging utility, making it imperative that customers move quickly to install the latest version as a barrage of attacks continues to pummel unpatched systems with a variety of malware. The new vulnerability, assigned the identifier CVE-2021-45046, makes it possible for adversaries to carry out denial-of-service (DoS) attacks and follows disclosure from the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) that the original fix for the remote code execution bug — CVE-2021-44228 aka Log4Shell — was "incomplete in certain non-default...

    A ruling politician in Northern Britain has suggested that people should take a COVID test every time they leave home. John Swinney, the Deputy First Minister for Scotland and member of the Scottish National Party — which, ironically enough, campaigns to split Scotland away from the rest of the United Kingdom so the state could then be absorbed into a Federal Europe — has suggested that people should take a test for the Chinese Coronavirus every time they leave the house.

    Alzheimer’s dementia predicted by brain amyloid levels, age. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed an approach to estimating when a person who is likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease, but has no cognitive symptoms, will start showing signs of Alzheimer’s dementia. The algorithm, available online in the journal Neurology, uses data from a kind of brain scan known as amyloid positron emission tomography (PET) to gauge brain levels of the key Alzheimer’s protein amyloid beta. In those who eventually develop Alzheimer’s dementia, amyloid silently builds up in the brain for up to two decades before...

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended the Biden administration’s decision not to require coronavirus vaccines or negative COVID-19 tests for people illegally crossing the border to seek asylum, claiming they are “not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time.” In recent days, thousands of migrants from Haiti and other countries have flooded the southern border seeking permanent asylum in the US. Many reached a processing bottleneck in Del Rio, Texas, last week, leaving over 12,000 migrants to camp under a bridge, sparking coronavirus and security threat concerns among local and state leaders. During Monday’s daily press...

    Rice University moved to online classes last week after a surprisingly high amount of students tested for COVID-19, which the university now says were false positives. Approximately 2% of the 4,500 administered tests produced a positive result. Consequently, Rice delayed the start of classes by two days to yesterday while maintaining online instruction through September 3. Unlike public schools in Texas, which are barred from mandating the COVID vaccine or masks, Rice stated that it expects students to get vaccinated before returning to campus. After analyzing the results, the university began to suspect that there was something amiss. Although Coronavirus...
