COVID breathalyzers are now a thing in the US: FDA

Federal officials in the United States have officially permitted yet another tool for COVID-19 testing. On Friday it was announced that FDA officials OK'd the use of a COVID test that appears as if it were a Breathalyzer test like when one gets stopped by a cop under suspicions of being intoxicated. "Today’s authorization is yet another example of the rapid innovation occurring with diagnostic tests for COVID-19," says an FDA director. "The FDA continues to support the development of novel COVID-19 tests with the goal of advancing technologies that can help address the current pandemic and better position the US for the next public health emergency."  These tests appear to have roughly a 91.2% success rate in determining positive test results through breath samples.

Biden has revealed that the White House is mulling new COVID-19 restrictions, federal mandate may follow

The White House has revealed that more COVID-19 restrictions are likely on the way. Reports out today show that Biden made the comments on his way out of DC towards Camp David. Of course, however, the comments almost universally have not sat well with right-wing America. Earlier this week the CDC confirmed a u-turn on their existing guidance for vaccinated people and the use of masks. On Tuesday the agency revealed new guidance that pretty much everyone should wear masks at all times. It is unclear exactly when those restrictions may come. Republican lawmakers have already chastised the agency for the u-turn which they said is based on evidence that the Delta variant is evading detection.

In wake of members death, Hillsong founder says vaccines are nothing more than a choice

In the midst of a vaccination struggle in America, and people needlessly dying because they’re misinformed, Hillsong Church is the latest place to see loss due to misinformed beliefs. This week news reports confirmed that church member Stephen Harmon died from complications of COVID-19 because he had refused to get the vaccination. The same vaccination it is understood that his mother had already had and was fine. In statements to CNN, church pastor Brian Houston defended Harmon’s then right not to get vaccinated because vaccines are a personal choice. "On any medical issue, we strongly encourage those in our church to follow the guidance of their doctors," Houston said, emphasizing that the church's focus was on spiritual well-being. "While many of our staff, leadership and...

Being fully vaccinated might not mean much in the battle against COVID-19 if they can’t keep up with variants

Being fully vaccinated might not mean much in the battle against COVID-19 if they can’t keep up with variants

The battle against COVID-19 has brought up a new problem that the government likely already knew about. But in governmental fashion, they can’t say things out of precaution that it may stoke fear among people. According to several media reports, a trio of people in Hawaii have call come down with COVID-19 after being fully vaccinated. Local media reports that at least two of them traveled to several US cities, which is an indicator they probably caught one of the many variants still spreading. It’s a stark reminder that nobody still knows whether or not the vaccines stop the spread or someone getting it. State officials say nobody has transmitted it to others yet. Generally speaking vaccines are designed to prevent illnesses.

The U.S has recorded more daily COVID-19 deaths than EVER as the virus rages once more

With inaction from the Trump Administration because of faulty claims of election interference —- America has a reckoning happening before our very eyes. America must face the Coronavirus and uppend the failure to properly address it — or a ton of people should expect to die from it. It is both sad as it is terrifying as many Americans have been left to go hungry; almost homeless, and nearly die at the hands of a country that could care less. Yesterday, John Hopkins reported that for the first time more COVID deaths occurred in a day than ever before. Per the latest numbers, 2800+ people died yesterday from either the virus. As many continue to travel and gear up for Christmas travel — it is expected that thousands more will die before Christmas Eve alone. Many people who went to Th...

The CDC is voting today on which Americans will get the COVID vaccine first

But that may be a tougher task than many realise because there's just that many people. A CDC panel is scheduled to meet this afternoon to determine which groups of Americans and so on will get the first bout of vaccinations. The problem is actually getting people to line up for a vaccination that a significant portion of the country doesn't even trust to begin with. December is slated to be a big month for the vaccination rush, although, the decision on who gets it actually comes before the FDA 's decision in itself. Some see this as problematic because after the obvious people -- who gets it next? It also goes to state that per reports is unclear whether or not there are enough vaccinations to go around at first. The idea in itself could potentially lead to a larger problem....
