    CodaK MomentS says:

    I cant even get a test to find out if I have COVID right now out here in the West. This whole supply chain issue is a bust. No tests until Next Monday ridiculous!

    Dan Wruck says:

    @Gabriella Grace exactly!! I ain’t standing in a damn line for hours, in the cold no less, just to increase my odds of catching something

    CodaK MomentS says:

    @Gabriella Grace Um because I work at a public institution that does not require people to be vaccinated and I have a conscience so I would feel bad if someone got it and died. Cause I’m not dead inside.

    CodaK MomentS says:

    You have a chance of dying everytime you wake up, the point is to not try to inflict harm upon others unless you care about no one but yourself and that seems to be the case. The American way.

    We Do A Little Trolling says:

    Just you use your anime powers

    Bob Cob says:

    @CodaK MomentS oh you’re dead inside. You just haven’t realized it yet.

    destroyerplayer says:

    So deadly that we are forcing people back to work.and school, no more unemoyment and forced passports

    Angel Luis Espada 1970 says:

    It is to usher the digital passports 😁

    h n says:

    @destroyer versus what? Paying people to stay home? That money is gone. No more free money. Stop asking. Get a job. Govt is broke. Economy needs workers. Bills need to be paid. Stop asking to destroy the economy any further.

    BigBadJerry Rogers says:

    @h n Nobody should have to work if they don’t want to, this is not acceptable

    Benny And the Jets says:

    I got the omicron and I’m vaccinated it felt like I was dying but thank God I’m ok

    Carpe Diem says:

    That’s because the vaccine made you worse.

    Carpe Diem says:

    @3nterprise Official Notice they’re not reporting how many of these cases are vaxxed ppl.

    BigBadJerry Rogers says:

    @Carpe Diem No stupid. If this person wasn’t vaccinated, they would have probably been taking up hospital space like a trashbag or a slab in the morgue

    Benny And the Jets says:

    @BigBadJerry Rogers yeah I actually stayed home, and just made sure I healed up..
    Symptoms where actually
    Sore throat-headeach-extreme nausea-extreme body pain-tired-cough-mucus-not able to think or remember stuff- hard to focus… No appetite.. it was tuff

    Golden Mean says:

    Thanks for sharing Benny, your voice is very important to the audiances.

    Catpax says:

    This country is going downhill so fast and hasn’t helped the people suffering all these years

    David E. Vogel says:

    Can you be more vague?

    daheikkinen says:

    This could help our Olympic bobsled team.

    BigBadJerry Rogers says:

    Yeah it’s going to be something when everything finally collapses. I just wish we could get on with it because I am definitely sick of paying the bills.

    LooNey Yang says:

    I lasted all this time without Covid until Friday Jan 7th. Cold chills, sweats, headache.

    jadrie eirdaj says:

    @LooNey Yang try natural meds like immunoboost drops sold online

    Moon Moon says:

    @zoom same

    nickole kirkendoll says:

    Me too and I was fine I had it the day after Christmas it literally only lastedv3 days…I fasted and drunk turmeric ginger garlic tea only

    Dr Cowan says:

    @cortical1 There are too many mutations in the s-protein of O’Micron for the immunity acquired from the “vaccines” and their subsequent boosters to be effective. Prepare for Biden’s winter of illness and death.

    cortical1 says:

    @Dr Cowan That’s ridiculous. Take an intro bio course at your local community college. 🎓

    Fortitudine Vincimus says:

    Now think of all the cases that didn’t get reported by people who used home testing kits.

    Fortitudine Vincimus says:

    @Courtney Breitwisch Well… I’ve read reports by specialists that said there’s evidence that this virus was spreading around the world before China even announced it.

    Courtney Breitwisch says:

    @Fortitudine Vincimus These symptoms overlap with several viral infections. Omicron is very different than other illnesses and is usually known by severe fatigue and body aches, scratchy (sandpaper-like) throat, headache, and upper respiratory tract infection, and most markedly, loss of taste or smell.

    Courtney Breitwisch says:

    @Fortitudine Vincimus China never announced it, so that would be correct. China didn’t need to make an announcement for us to track cases in Wuhan, though. We have also been able to track travelers from Wuhan to the US and Wuhan to Europe.
    Why the incessant need to have been infected earlier than Covid was in the US?

    Fortitudine Vincimus says:

    @Courtney Breitwisch Incessant?? I’m just telling you the information I’ve read in reports by specialists.

    Moon Moon says:

    @Courtney Breitwisch facts. That happened to me

    Thrax Hunter says:

    After reading the newly published papers from University of S. Africa, masks and vaccines may matter very little with Omicron. Good news is that it might out compete Delta and the much more dangerous variants.

    Matt says:

    @Courtney Breitwisch Agree to a point. South Africa’s population is younger, thinner, more diverse, and has a higher rate of immunity through prior infection than the US. The real risk appears to be people who were infected so early on that their immunity has waned (and they haven’t received a vaccine booster) as well as those who haven’t been infected so far and haven’t been vaccinated. Those 2 groups look to be in for a tough road ahead.

    Steve Strange says:

    This news story you’re commenting on states that vaccines offer tremendous protection — 20x more likely to die if you are unvaccinated. Are you saying you don’t believe the US-based data expressed in this story? Or that you believe most of these cases are Delta and not Omicron?

    Golden Mean says:

    @Courtney Breitwisch I agree with you. I am in the Epic Centre of Omicron, in Pretoria/S.Africa. We are doing very well without Vic. This is the truth. S. Africa has a very low V-Rate only 25% and 92% natural immunity to fight Omicron. Countries have V-Immunity likely to spread, examples of those highly V’ed countries and regions.

    Thrax Hunter says:

    @Steve Strange I believe the spread of Delta seems to be happening much later in the states almost as if the US is somehow keeping the variant around longer. Masks may help stop the spread of Delta but Omicron will continue to spread no matter what the US does. Maybe that’s a good thing since the data suggest it may wipe out Delta in several months.

    nursenica 16 says:

    I had covid and i’m vaccinated.. horrible dry cough. My lungs hursts when I cough and sneeze. My body and head hurst. I thought I will be asymptomatic,but I was wrong.

    Carpe Diem says:

    @frank g stfu

    Carpe Diem says:

    I’m not vaxxed and have never had covid symptoms and have never gotten tested.

    Hairy Rokeke says:

    @Omar Guerrero could be deltacron

    Moon Moon says:

    @TheKing0fHalo I did too but weird that I’m unvaccinated….hmm

    Fattiger says:

    What does it mean to “have covid” and how do you know its different from other colds/flus you have had? With out the tests what would you think happened to you?

    82boulou says:

    I got it and yes i Know many people this time got it and guess what ? It’s mild cold symptoms .. I’ve had much nastiest ones in my life .. The Pandemic is obviously fading away and this new strain is indeed more infectious but not dangerous .

    Matt says:

    Just because you had mild symptoms doesn’t mean it was mild for others. It’s honestly pretty arrogant to assume that.

    82boulou says:

    @Matt
    what is really Pretty arrogant is thinking that we could totally control nature and live risk free or even avoid the constantly existing possibility of death for thousands of reasons . The new strain is mild even if it killed a million people cause people just die even for the most trivial of reasons . You please sir stop being arrogant and accept the fact that we live through hundreds of dangers on daily basis and all we can do is to keep living and take our chances through the risks . Otherwise we ll sit around in lockdown untill we die of hunger or kill ourselves from severe depression !

    Ram's 12thMan says:

    My 5 year old niece got covid and was only really sick for 1 day..same with me
    I’m not downplaying the situation but don’t freak out ppl

    Free Thinker 45 says:

    @Random Thoughts my point is that covid is not that big of a killer. Yes it kills but not at a alarming rate. Yes it is transmissible but again not that big of a killer. It hasn’t even reached the level of Spanish flu let alone the plague level. The plague wiped out half of the population of Europe and yet Europe went on to colonize the world. Mean while we have a sickness that over all kills hardly anyone by comparison and we freak the hell out and act like the world is ending. Complete insanity.

    We Do A Little Trolling says:

    @Free Thinker 45 Did you know that heart disease and cancer are the the number one and number 2 killers of people worldwide every year? What a dumbass 😂

    We Do A Little Trolling says:

    @Free Thinker 45 Your critical thinking skills are so unbelievably flawed it’s mind blowing 😂. People like you are the reason it’s gotten this bad end of story.

    cortical1 says:

    @Free Thinker 45 My uncle and colleague are both dead because of it. Infected before vaccines were available. No one’s freaking out. 900,000 dead just isn’t a good thing. And it would be much, much worse if not taken seriously.

    HeartDoc Andrew says:

    “Omicron cases explode to 1.4 million in a day” so let’s #ConvinceItForward

    Ester Paisley says:

    My family of 4 – all vaccinated within 2 to 3 months ago! We all tested positive this week. All of us. Stay home if you are sick – with anything (cold, flu, covid). This is the key. Most people think that it is safe to go around sick if it is not covid, not really knowing what they have. Just stay home if sick.

    chinrong1988 says:

    @Kathy Carroll If you think vaccine is joke, have you consider smallpox vaccine which successfully implemented to eradicate smallpox? Or you also one of those whom prioritize own freedom and calling Covid-19 pendemic is hoax? Look around your community and see many people are drying because of Covid-19.

    tagamial says:

    @Truth is Freedom Florida , when you’re not busy trolling on you tube right

    Ryan Burton says:

    Hahahaha idiots

    Free Thinker 45 says:

    @chinrong1988 first off the covid vaccine actually isn’t a vaccine in the traditional way. It is brand new technology that had never been tried in humans before now and that is because every animal testing they did they ended up with massive amounts of dead animals. It is why they never made a vaccine for the common cold because the kind of technology needed hadn’t been perfected and always ended in failure. But yet they went forward with the covid vaccine even though every animal trial ended in failure. That is why I am sceptical. There is a lot of people getting heart attacks and some straight up dying after taking the vaccine. I have no problem with most other vaccines because they have proven themselves but the covid vaccine doesn’t protect you. You can still get sick, still transmit and even die from covid. Sorry but that isn’t a vaccine.

    Truth is Freedom Florida says:

    @chinrong1988
    Provide a single study that proves ANY “virus” is transmissible. Also, provide a single instance of any “virus” being isolated. Feel free to file a FOIA request with any government for the answers and see what you get! You are all being fooled, over and over.

    Elizabeth Lehman says:

    It pisses me off that they feel there is such science that we need to use N95 or KN95 but the government is no where to be found to get them in households.

    jc ntp says:

    Most people stocked up when ppl were going for cloth masks, now i guiess there will be a shortage for some time

    “Alaska” says:

    Lol, that’s not going to happen. Biden won’t even allow treatments. He’s got them cut off too.

    Samuel1127 Lee says:

    But in HK, with <10 community cases a day, they are still imposing harsh measures. I was able to ride on an empty train 2 days ago.
    The MTR app has been listing a lot of last train times early, especially on the Light Rail, but it is beneficial to prevent covid as more people return home sooner.

    Kevin's Journal says:

    I was in HK right when pandemic started early 2020, almost everyone was already wearing masks, haven’t been back since, can only imagine what it must be like these days right now.

    Kevin's Journal says:

    Been listening to David report about covid prob since we went into lockdown almost wild 2 years ago.

    tagamial says:

    Many people think it’s a cold and aren’t even bothering with testing. Many people don’t want to wait in lines where insurance isn’t needed for testing. Then you have some who can’t afford to not work and work for small businesses who won’t pay for covid leave.

    James A says:

    What exactly do you think getting tested will accomplish?

    tagamial says:

    @James A , people without insurance and those that are living paycheck to paycheck probably won’t get tested. Eventually most people will get sick because of this. The people that are getting tested have the means to do so or are people that need to for work or other personal reasons. Not all people have cars to get to a test . I know people that are working because their jobs won’t pay them time off . Why bother filing disability when you only will get paid for a couple of those days? This variant seems mild compared to previous ones and fortunately not as many people will get severely sick as previous ones. I think at this point testing is all personal.

    James A says:

    @tagamial i just find it very suspect that people get very sick only after they’ve been tested. Something strange is happening.

    tagamial says:

    @James A, I was sick before testing. I needed verification for work . I don’t know if what you’re questioning is true or not – who knows ? Everyone I know who has recently gotten tested has done so because they are sick and have symptoms. I know some people people are in denial and don’t want to know. Like I stated , I think it’s personal at this point. I hope that people don’t suffer from this virus , but it seems inevitable that most will get it eventually. If what they’re saying is true , it’s going to be a part of all of our lives.

    Elaine says:

    Thank you for reporting on better masks which are so important.

    My daughter is vaccinated, tested positive but her symptoms were extremely mild. She’s negative now but the after effects is a lingering cough she’s never had.
