2/3 of Serious Covid Cases Among Fully Vaxed

No.897949 ViewReplyOriginalReport
>More than half of the current cases and two-thirds of patients in serious condition were fully vaccinated, the Health Ministry reported.
>here were 2,100 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday and 145 patients in serious condition, the Health Ministry reported.“We have been dealing with it, believe me, for a month now,” Bennett said while visiting the Migdal Nofim assisted-living facility in Jerusalem, Hebrew media outlets reported. “There are things that need to be allowed to develop. We are very close.
>The rise in serious morbidity has been relatively limited compared with general morbidity. At the beginning of June, out of fewer than 200 active cases, about 20 patients were in serious condition. Today, with more than 13,000 active cases, 145 patients are in serious condition.Health officials and experts are concerned that the protection granted to the most vulnerable sectors of the population who were vaccinated first has been waning.

Now the truth comes out. Earlier reports that stated the fully vaxed were getting covid, but not being hospitalized with serious symptoms may have just been due to early information being wrong.

Who's ready for more jabs?

Justice says IRS must give Trump tax returns to Congress

The Justice Department, in a reversal, says the Treasury Department must provide the House Ways and Means Committee former President Donald Trump’s tax returns, apparently ending a long legal showdown over the records.

In a memo dated Friday, Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel said the committee chairman “has invoked sufficient reasons for requesting the former President’s tax information” and that under federal law, “Treasury must furnish the information to the Committee.”

The 39-page memo is signed by Dawn Johnsen, installed by the Biden administration as the acting head of the legal counsel office.

During the Trump administration, then-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he wouldn’t turn over the tax returns because he concluded they were being sought by Democrats who control the House of Representatives for partisan reasons.

Retired US general says the Trump White House 'was complicit

in the planning' of the January 6 insurrection

Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, who was tasked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with conducting a review of the US Capitol's security after January 6, on Tuesday said President Donald Trump's White House was complicit in orchestrating the insurrection.

"It's my personal opinion that the executive branch was complicit in the planning and the delayed response that occurred in bringing in more federal assistance to the Capitol that day," Honoré said during an MSNBC appearance, underscoring that he had not reached this conclusion from the security review he spearheaded.

"That's my own perception, based on what I've seen and what I've heard and by the fact the former president is continuing to tell people, 'This was not a riot, it meant no harm, it was like a picnic,'" Honoré said, adding, "The last I heard from him, he told them to go to the Capitol and raise hell."

During an incendiary speech near the White House shortly before the violence at the Capitol, Trump told lies about the 2020 election and called on his supporters to "fight like hell."

Trump was impeached for provoking the insurrection, but he was acquitted in the Senate with the help of his Republican allies — including GOP lawmakers who had said he bore responsibility for the deadly riot.

Audio from migrant shelter reveals allegations of sex misconduct by staff with minors

No.899924 ViewReplyOriginalReport

New audio from inside a U.S. government shelter for unaccompanied migrant children in Fort Bliss, Texas, reveals allegations of sexual misconduct by staff toward minors, acknowledgment the children were running low on clean clothes and shoes and a reluctance by officials to make public the scope of the facility's Covid outbreak.

"We have already caught staff with minors inappropriately. Is that OK with you guys?" says a federal contractor running a training session with staffers inside Fort Bliss in May.

The crowd shouts back, "No!"

"I hope not," she says.

"If you catch them, especially if it's a staff member, you separate that minor from that person immediately," the contractor says, making no mention of flagging supervisors to report the incident.

At its peak this spring, the temporary facility at Fort Bliss held nearly 5,000 migrant children, as the Department of Health and Human Services scrambled to take in children who were overcrowding Border Patrol stations. At the time of the training session, the facility held about 3,000 minors.

Later in the training session, the contractor says children have complained about staff bouncing up and down on their beds to wake them up.
"I know there have been a lot of complaints from minors about staff members waking them up in the morning," she says. "We've got some staff members that are picking up and shaking the bed to wake up the minor. Or they're bouncing them on the bed. They think they're being playful, but that constitutes child abuse. I want you guys to know that."

A few minutes later, she acknowledges there is a shortage of clean clothes and shoes for minors.

>About three-fourths of people infected in a Massachusetts Covid-19 outbreak were fully vaccinated against the coronavirus with four of them ending up in the hospital, according to new data published Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

>The new data, published in the U.S. agency’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, also found that fully vaccinated people who get infected carry as much of the virus in their nose as unvaccinated people, and could spread it to other individuals.

Florida coronavirus cases jump 50 % in one week,highest since January

No.899850 ViewReplyOriginalReport
The Florida Department of Health said there were more than 110,000 new cases recorded this week, a jump from the more than 73,000 reported last week. Case numbers have returned to the level seen in January, before widespread distribution of the vaccine.

Just over 50 percent of Florida's population is fully vaccinated

Florida is second nationally in new coronavirus cases and hospitalizations, behind Louisiana.

Florida Gov. Ron DeathSantis (R) has urged Florida residents to get vaccinated, but has also criticized the CDC's masking guidance and signaled he won't go along with efforts to require indoor face coverings.

The governor on Friday announced he had signed an executive order directing state officials to push to "protect parents' freedom to choose whether their children wear masks" when school starts this fall.

“The federal government has no right to tell parents that in order for their kids to attend school in person, they must be forced to wear a mask all day, every day,” he said in a statement.

DC cops ordered to arrest staff and visitors not wearing masks

No.898567 ViewReplyOriginalReport
U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress.

Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks.
Pelosi's office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it's not within her power, although she is heartily in favor of it.

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Thursday pointed out the police are only permitted to arrest people on the Union bluebelly House side of the complex, not the Johnny Reb Senate side, because leadership in the upper chamber hasn't brought back the mask mandates.

"If you are a Capitol police officer you got orders … if a vaccinated staffer comes across in the Union bluebelly House side without a mask you're ordered to arrest them, but not on the Senate side," McCarthy said. "This is not the America we know."
