    While the pandemic has brought out the best in people, with countless volunteers helping those in desperate need find oxygen, drugs or hospital beds, it has also brought out some of the worst.

    Black market operators across the country have been profiteering by selling oxygen cylinders at exorbitant prices.

    Delhi Police arrested 3 who tampered with scrapped fire extinguishers & sold them as oxygen cylinders. Police seized 532 such cylinders of various sizes.

    Potentially Deadly 'Black Fungus' Keeps Showing Up in COVID-19 Patients in India

    Some COVID-19 patients in India have developed a rare and potentially fatal fungal infection called mucormycosis, also known as "black fungus," according to news reports.

    Mucormycosis is caused by a group of molds called mucormycetes, which grow in soil and decaying organic matter, such as rotting leaves and wood, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    "It is ubiquitous and found in soil and air and even in the nose and mucus of healthy people," Dr. Akshay Nair, a Mumbai-based eye surgeon, told BBC News.

    The mold can enter the body through cuts and other abrasions in the skin, or the infection can take hold in the sinuses or lungs after people breathe in the fungal spores. Once inside the body, the fungus can sometimes spread through the bloodstream and affect other organs, such as the brain, eyes, spleen and heart.

    Most commonly, mucormycosis strikes those with weakened immune systems, including those with diabetes and those taking medicines that suppress immune activity, according to the CDC. Now, an increasing number of COVID-19 patients in India appear to be contracting the infection, The New York Times reported.

    COVID-19 vaccine in development at Duke, could be used alone or as booster shot

    RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Duke University is developing a vaccine to stay ahead of COVID-19 variants. This shot might also stop new viruses from jumping from animals to humans like the coronavirus did.

    The combination of three new findings may make it the most promising vaccine yet.

    “It’s just been a fulfilling, a rewarding experience to hopefully have an effect on the pandemic,” said Kevin Saunders, director of the Duke Human Vaccine Institute. Saunders switched from working on an HIV vaccine to COVID-19 last spring.

    He said Duke’s COVID-19 vaccine looks promising in its animal trials so far. It could be used alone or as a booster shot for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

    “You get really good protection whether they received the mRNA vaccine first or whether or not they received only the nano-particle vaccine,” Saunders said.

    Studies have shown the variants are decreasing vaccine efficacy by up to 10-fold. Saunders said their vaccine was only decreased three-fold. He said it was shown to do well against the Brazil, South Africa, and United Kingdom variants.

    “We were able to have more potent immunity against some of the variants compared to the mRNA vaccines we tested,” Saunders said.

    I suspect he meant to post this article with the same headline:

    World’s most vaccinated nation sees COVID-19 resurgence, raising questions over Chinese vaccine
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/world-most-vaccinated-nation-sees-212354694.html

    It concerns the Seychelles being the most vaccinated country, and apparently a third of people who received a vaccine are infected.

    Apparently the majority received the chinese vaccine Sinopherm.

    ...most of Seychelle's cases appear to be mild, said Kate O' Brien, director of immunizations, vaccines and biologicals at the World Health Organization. "The Sinopharm vaccine really requires two doses," she added, "and some of the cases that are being reported are occurring either soon after a single dose, or soon after a second dose."

    There is no breakdown on which vaccine they received, how many doses, when they received it, or what strain of the virus they were infected with. What it does mention is that most Seychelle cases are mild cases.

    Take whatever vaccine you can get your hands on. It's better than nothing and will likely reduce the severity of infection.

    Woman charged with selling unapproved COVID remedies online

    A woman has been charged with selling adulterated or misbranded drugs after Food and Drug Administration investigators said she was shipping remedies she claimed would confer immunity against COVID-19, but have not been approved for that use by the FDA.

    Diana Daffin of Charlotte, N.C., was charged Tuesday in U.S. District Court in New Hampshire after FDA investigators in the administration’s Boston regional office inquired about the remedies and had them shipped to New Hampshire.

    The investigation began when an FDA investigator found a website in March 2020, Holistic Healthy Pet, advertising homeopathic remedies touting “Corona Viral Immune Support and/or Active Respiratory Infection for all ages.” (story continues...)

    Expect the situation to get worse before it gets better (ie. heightened travel restrictions, vaccine passports etc.), due to some people ignoring public health and safety guidelines.

    nothing has to due with anyone ignoring public health and safety guidelines … people will die from a virus sometime in 2021 just like every year … ain’t nothing new going on … influenza will runs its path as usual .. stomach viruses and colds … what they are trying is accomplish is in plain sight … let’s say they get a 70% ratio of the US completely vaccinated … that is when unvaccinated becomes minority and forced inoculation can happen without people that have been vaccinated giving shit if it does .. or .. unvaccinated get imprisonment possibly .. it all is very Godless …. I have no expectations really … there is nothing .. I myself can do about any of it

    So what we know to be facts: People are getting Covid-19 after taking the vaccine.... The Vaccines - Plural... is causing Blood Clots.... Heart Enlargement .... Brain Abnormalities ....Death... Covid vaccines are mRNA filled ... Long Term Complications??? They don't know yet ... Science has yet to prove a 19th Variant of Covid actually exists ... But what the long term effects of the three vaccines???

    Because COVID-19 vaccines clinical trials only started in the summer of 2020, it's not yet clear if these vaccines will have long-term side effects.

    Plandemic, AKA planned pandemic?

    There are a couple of members who have been pushing this conspiracy theory here who are largely ignored.

    Just block them and the Plandemic will go away.
