    Nearly 1 in 10 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. are from the BA.2.86 variant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated Monday, nearly triple what the agency estimated the highly mutated variant's prevalence was two weeks ago. Among the handful of regions with enough specimens reported from testing laboratories, BA.2.86's prevalence is largest in the Northeast: 13.1% of cases in the New York and New Jersey region are blamed on the strain. Monday's figures mark the first time BA.2.86's prevalence has surged enough to be listed as a standalone variant on the CDC's estimates. Scientists first warned of...

    The number of Americans complying with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest COVID-19 vaccine recommendation has dramatically waned, the federal agency warns. According to CDC data, approximately 14 percent of US adults have received the latest COVID jab that became available in the fall. In other words, a whopping 86 percent of Americans don’t trust the Biden administration’s agenda and see through one of the biggest scams forced on the public to date. “COVID-19 vaccine uptake is lower than we’d like to see, and most people will be without the added protection that can reduce the severity of...

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is encouraging Americans to “keep” their holiday plans and “get vaccinated” for protection, despite the fact that the coronavirus vaccine does not prevent one from contracting the virus or halt virus transmission. “Keep your holiday plans. Get vaccinated. Stay protected,” an image shared by the CDC reads, featuring a group of people smiling around the dinner table about to have a Thanksgiving meal. “Planning for COVID-19 protection makes for a safer, healthier holiday season. Get yourself and your loved ones vaccinated and stay up to date on your immunizations,” the caption...

    (NEXSTAR) — As Americans prepare to gather for the holidays, many say they fear becoming sick in the coming months. Based on the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, those concerns may be genuine. While the CDC doesn’t track COVID-19 testing as closely as it did during the pandemic, it does still track other COVID-related data. That includes hospital admissions for COVID, jumped by almost 9% in the most recent week of data, through Nov. 11. The percentage of people visiting the emergency room and testing positive for COVID is up by 7%, and the number...
  • FBI and CDC Slammed for “Dropping the Ball” on Illegal California Biolab Run by Chinese

    The lab was run by a Chinese man, Jesse Zhu, and was paid millions of dollars by China while experiments were being conducted at the Reedley facility. Legal Insurrection readers may recall that this summer, I reported on a warehouse in Reedley, California had been the site of a massive remediation project and investigation after it was discovered to be an illegal, unlicensed laboratory full of lab mice, infectious agent samples, medical waste, and hazardous materials. There were over 20 different infectious agents that this company was working with, ostensibly for the development of diagnostic kits. The pathogens included herpes,...

    In a new Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) response, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now admits that it recommended COVID-19 vaccines for people who had recovered from COVID-19 despite the fact that CDC subject matter experts didn't have access to the underlying data.The stunning disclosure came in reply to a FOIA request for information on the CDC’s claim, first made on Oct. 29, 2021, that unvaccinated people with previous infection were five times more likely to get COVID-19 than vaccinated people.The CDC’s claim was based on a CDC study published in the Nov. 9, 2021, edition of...

    The nation’s primary early warning system used to detect possible safety problems with vaccines is “overwhelmed,” raising concerns the system may be broken and isn’t being adequately managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to a new investigation.The report published on Nov. 10 by The BMJ found the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has received an unprecedented number of reports attributed to COVID-19 vaccines, and there aren't enough staff to meet the requirements for reviewing and following up with serious reports, including deaths. Additionally, the investigation revealed that VAERS is neither transparent, user-friendly, nor responsive,...

    The owner of the Reedley biolab was/is part of the Chinese Communist Party’s “Military-Civil Fusion” program, and received millions in suspicious dollars from China while stealing American bio-technology, selling unlicensed pregnancy and COVID tests, and squirreling away thousands of vials of deadly pathogens.
  • CDC Runs Two VAERS Systems – The Public Can Only View One of Them

    VAERS is the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System and is a national early warning system to detect possible safety problems in U.S.-licensed vaccines. VAERS accepts and analyses reports of adverse events (possible side effects) after a person has received a vaccination and is co-managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Recently an investigation by The BMJ into VAERS, found multiple deficiencies in the system, including the revelation that the government runs two systems — one for the public, and a private back-end system that contains all of the corrections...

    Federal public health agencies are reportedly withholding the most accurate and up-to-date reports of vaccine injury from the public, allegedly to protect privacy. Patients don't necessarily see it that way, and it's not clear the feds told Congress. The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, jointly managed by the CDC and FDA, has a secret "back end" privy only to regulators, an FDA official told advocates of VAERS reform nearly a year ago, according to a British Medical Journal investigation published Friday. "Anything derived from medical records by law" cannot be included in the "front end system" accessible to the public,...

    A COVID-19 map from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows where new cases and hospitalizations are rising in states throughout the country. Overall, data from the CDC showed that across the U.S., COVID-19 testing positivity, hospitalizations and deaths declined for the week of October 29 to November 4, but some states saw a rise. In August and September, many health officials across the nation warned of a possible rise in new cases during the upcoming winter months, which coincides with what the CDC calls respiratory season. "Fall and winter are a time when viruses that cause...

    CDC is conducting a new pilot on samples it is collecting as part of its Traveler-based Genomic Surveillance (TGS) program that will provide early detection of flu, RSV, and select other respiratory viruses, in addition to SARS-CoV-2. The pilot, which will last for several months, will be implemented by Ginkgo Bioworks and XpresCheck. Samples that test positive for these viruses will be sequenced and uploaded to public databases to provide valuable information to public health officials and policy makers. “The expansion of the Traveler-based Genomic Surveillance program to flu, RSV, and other pathogens is essential as we head into fall...

    After being stuffed into an airplane cabin for a long, redeye flight from overseas, you’re finally on your way home — but first, the government wants to shove a cotton swab up your nose. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is asking passengers returning from international destinations at four U.S. airports to volunteer for its Traveler-based Genomic Surveillance (TGS) program. Passengers at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., and San Francisco International Airport can now have their nasal discharge anonymously sampled as they leave the travel hubs.

    ATLANTA -- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday continued to sound the alarm about a spike in syphilis cases among newborns. Congenital syphilis is caused by a pregnant woman with syphilis passing the infection to their unborn child. CDC officials said that new data shows that 10-times more babies were born with syphilis in 2022 than in 2012. "New actions are needed to prevent more family tragedies," CDC Chief Medical Officer Debra Houry said. "We’re calling on healthcare providers, public health systems, and communities to take additional steps to connect mothers and babies with the care they...

  • New “anti-CRISPR” discovered in viruses...It could be an “off” switch for gene editing and create better weapons against superbugs.

    Anewly discovered “anti-CRISPR” system in viruses could help us control CRISPR gene-editing technologies and lead to better weapons against antibiotic-resistant superbugs. The background: Your immune system has ways to remember viruses you’ve encountered before and help defend you if they appear again — and, amazingly, some single-celled bacteria do, too. These microbes evolved the CRISPR system to protect themselves from the viruses that infect bacteria, called phages. The bacteria will take a little bit of a virus’ DNA sequence and add it to their own genome, like a memory of past infections. They then create CRISPR-associated (Cas) proteins containing copies...

    Sheesh, talk about the timing of two different articles. Politico reported yesterday that CDC officials admit only 3% of eligible Americans have chosen to get the latest COVID-19 booster shot, although there could be some delay in reporting.WASHINGTON – The Biden administration’s campaign to convince Americans to get an annual Covid shot is off to a very slow start. Even so, the nation’s top disease-fighting official says the U.S. remains “on track” to hit last year’s uptake levels, which crested at just 17 percent of the U.S. population.

    Researcher who caught dozens of CDC errors calls agency's talking points "really irresponsible." Possible roadmap for challenging mRNA vaccines after Gilead denied legal immunity for tainted remdesivir. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is going to greater lengths than Pfizer to minimize the risk of heart inflammation in teenagers after COVID-19 vaccination. The FDA authorized the latest mRNA boosters for children as young as 6 months in September despite its own researchers finding a "safety signal" for post-vaccination seizures and convulsions in 2- to 5-year-old children, a demographic at near-zero risk from SARS-CoV-2 itself. The disconnect between agency brass...

    Move over mosquitos. There's another blood-sucking biter Americans need to guard against because it can spread disease: the sand fly.Sand flies are tiny tan flies — about a quarter of the size of a mosquito — that live in warm, wet, rural and forested areas. In other parts of the world, they are known to transmit a parasite — a single-celled organism — that causes an infectious disease called leishmaniasis. They're most active at night, and they're so tiny they can slip through ordinary mosquito nets on tents or window screens. "Sometimes you don't even notice that you've been bitten,"...

    Fewer pregnant women are getting influenza and other vaccines this year. Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as some doctors, say that fewer pregnant women are getting influenza and other vaccines this year. A recent CDC report found that among 2,000 women who were pregnant during last year's cold and influenza season, as the survey was carried out in March and April, about a quarter of them were "very hesitant" about getting a flu vaccine. A year before that, some 17.2 percent were very hesitant to receive the shot. The CDC study also found that...
