An Australian woman has died allegedly after getting the COVID-19 vaccine: Report

Yet another puzzling report of COVID-19 vaccine frustrations has emerged. According to News.com.au, an unnamed elderly woman reportedly died this week just hours after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine down under. Many following the report began to question whether or not it was in fact safe to take the vaccine. Chief Medical Examiner Paul Kelly said  “at this stage there are no signs of any causal link,” the Australian Associated Press reported. “It can be expected that older and more frail people in an aged care setting may pass away due to progression of underlying disease or natural causes, this does not mean the vaccine has contributed to this,” he said.

Europe is now vying for America’s unused vaccines

The race to vaccinate as many people as possible is exposing another problem with vaccinations entirely. According to the New York Times, the Astrazeneca vaccine is being hoarded mostly in America to the tune of millions of doses -- but other countries want to get their hands on them. America however has reportedly told the EU-block that such won't happen in the near future until as many Americans as possible are indeed vaccinated. The idea that the Biden Administration is hogging the vaccines has upset people overseas who see it as yet another great divide between America and the rest of the world.

The vaccinated anti masker attacks have begun: Watch

Out in San Francisco an Uber driver has found himself in the midst of headlines after being assaulted by his passengers.

UK Hospitals: Wanna park that car? That’ll be some £ £ £

You'd think in a time like this nurse heroes would be ones to get freebies; discounts, and other stuff but that isn't the case. In a bombshell exclusive out this week, The Mirror uncovered how a series of NHS hospitals are apparently charging said heroes upwards of £500 to park their cars at Epsom and St Heller. Bosses apparently claim that the move comes amid "increased demand" and is meant to help reduce said demand. Although it seems crass and despicable to charge these people to park their cars when they are quite literally saving our lives. The hospitals join a series of other businesses and such that in more ways than one are profiting off of the pandemic.

China: Come here, we have to swab your anal cavity for COVID-19

No that headline is not a joke. Amid reports of a new outbreak in China, a bizarre caveat has emerged right behind it.

As much as we wish we didn't know this, the swab is reportedly entered 1.2 to 2inches deep and turned in a circular motion to collect a sample.

Officials are now saying that the current COVID-19 vaccines may not work against 501.V2

501.V2 being a new strand of the Coronavirus that appears to possibly have mutated its way into immunity. According to the BBC, the current vaccines may still work but due to the resistance or “immunity” that the current South African variant has developed within itself —- said vaccines may be weakened. Experts are cautioning that research is being done at breakneck speed to determine if new vaccines may be needed and the fact that there is no need to panic at this time. The South African variant, thus, has been detected in the United Kingdom and the United States as of this writing. It is unclear whether or not this variant is more deadly or transmissable, but what is known, is that this variant has ravaged the South African coast.
