Pfizer now claims that its vaccine likely will protect against the new fast spreading COVID-19 strains

Pfizer has now annnounced amid growing fears that its vaccine may be inadequate against new strains of COVID-19 that the vaccine actually appears to be adequate. The AP reports that the reason why tne UK and the African strains were believed to be mutated and more contagious is because of a particular point in the strain. That point has been identified as N501Y. Researchers note that such is an apparent spike in one of the proteins that coat the virus.

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.

South African strain of COVID-19 might be in the U.S and it may be deadlier than the last

The third known strain of COVID-19 known to have reportedly come from South Africa may already be in the United States. As such this would mean that the U.S is likely battling its own strain; the UK strain, and the South African strain. According to the CDC, efforts to track down people who may be infected with this strain have grown to be complicated to say the least. Researchers now say that, per African media reports, that the SA strain appears to or may already have a mutation of itself that makes it harder to determine such in a test. The strain is believed to have some level of antibody resistance. Just last week, officials in Colorado managed to detect the first known case of the UK strain in America. That strain was found in someone who reportedly has no travel histo...

A NYC landlord couldn’t evict his tenants so he allegedly burnt down the house with them inside of it

Talk about cruel intentions. According to FDNY and several media reports, police are still investigating a suspicious housefire that recently occurred in Queens. That housefire, indeed, now appears to have been intentionally set as accelerant has been found on gloves that were near the home. Some believe that the landlord (living up to fully NY reputation here) was pissed that he couldn’t evict and decided to do the unthinkable. Editors note: This story appears to have first been reported by the New York Post, but because of an editorial directive, we aren’t allowed to link to the Post due to their shoddy editorial practices and negligence. Media reports show that Eric Chen, who appears to be the owner of  90-31 48th Ave, is now under serious investigation in relation to the crim...

Republicans are burning themselves to the ground at remarkable breakneck speeds

In what likely will be the end of the GOP 's control over the Senate, Mitch McConnell (unless he suddenly does an about face) has effectively sealed the GOP 's fate. Senator Loeffler and Perdue were both already struggling in Georgia, and against the backdrop of arguments that the GOP isn't doing enough for Americans, they began to struggle even more as polls and discussions went on. On Tuesday, Mitch McConnell effectively ended any hopes right now of increased stimulus to Americans. This means, however, that people should increasingly pay attention to Mitch 's own moves and his financial interests from here on out. During Tuesday 's session, Mitch refused to bring to the floor a vote that would otherwise either reject or grant the piece of legislation that would swiftly incre...

McConnell has blocked efforts to increase US stimulus checks

Senate Maj Leader Mitch McConnell has once again blocked efforts to increase the stimulus checks for Americans to $2k. During a floor speech, Mitch made the comment that an apparent process is in the works to bring such an issue to the floor; along with that of Section 230, and that of the baseless claims of election fraud. https://twitter.com/therecount/status/1343973126565224448?s=21 Unless his process means that something will change the move is essentially dead unless Democrats win the Senate race in Georgia.

The U.S House approves $2k payments to Americans, the final tally, is however up to Republicans

As it has been several times throughout 2020. As of Monday evening, the House narrowly managed to pass a measure that would increase the stimulus checks to $2k. In that passing, they managed to get along the Dem side at least 44 Republicans to vote along with the measure. Thus, as I usually is, the real test will be whether or not the Senate actually takes up the issue which is ultimately up to McConnell. The Washington Post reports that the Senate may convene on the issue on Tuesday, but, it is unknown how McConnell will move. Although it's worth noting, the fate of the Senate is up in the air and Mitch is getting pretty desperate to keep it. Right now, Senator Loeffler and Perdue are both neck and neck with the Democrats in the state. The end result of the GA Senate runoff u...

Expanded unemployment benefits renewed as Trump has signed relief bill

A downfall brought on largely by an indept government that has in nearly every sense possible failed the very people the government is supposed to represent. Tonight at the stroke of midnight, more than 20m Americans will lose their expanded unemployment benefits as part of the previously passed CARES Act. Those expanded unemployment benefits have largely been part of a larger lifeline to millions most of whom are now on the brink and collapse of quite literally every possible person’s worst nightmare. With the unemployment benefits expiring; the fate of the bill uncertain, and the fact that rental and eviction protections also expire later next week — America has continued its extraordinary plummet downwards. A feat that it has largely achieved at nearly universal breakneck speed. ...

Canadian health officials now say mutant COVID strain is inside Canada

Amid growing reports that the mutant COVID strain originally thought to be from the UK has made it to other parts of the world — it has now reportedly made it to Canada. Per Canadian health officials, a couple in Metro Toronto has tested positive for the highly contagious new strain of the virus. Here’s what we know so far: Canadian health officials claim that the couple, who has not been identified, has no known travel history, Because of such it is an indication they may have caught the strain from inside Canada.US health officials are warning their own lackluster UK travel rules are insufficient. There is conflicting information running amuck on just how contagious the new strain is. The new strain has also made it into: Denmark, Belgium, Australia, Holland, and other cou...

Three more mutant strains of COVID-19 have been discovered

Potentially throwing vaccination efforts into disarray considering medical officials from Pfizer and Moderna have both acknowledged they would need more time to ensure their vaccines are appropriate. Appropriate being they may not be suitable for the newer version of the virus as they were designed mostly for the old version of the virus. According to the World Health Organisation, new strains (in the UK and South Africa both of which are considered to be much more contagious that the original COVID-19) are side-by-side with another strain recently discovered in Nigeria. Researchers and officials reportedly aren’t clear yet as to whether or not the Nigerian strain of the virus is more contagious like others discovered. Meanwhile in the UK, the Kent mutation that was found is be...

Bye Bye Birx

Controversial task force member and healthcare official Deborah Birx is out of a job. According to reports, Birx confirmed her resignation this week following intensified backlash after it was found she violated her own recommendations. Over the holidays, as it turns out, Birx traveled to a vacation home whilst telling the rest of America to stay put. Many took the notion as Birx being outed as a hypocrite.  "I will be helpful in any role that people think I can be helpful in," Birx told Newsy, "and then I will retire."  The comments weren’t taken well considering Birx didn’t really own up to her own actions.

The teen who knowingly violated COVID-19 laws in the Cayman Islands has of course had her privilege exercised

To be white and American surely lends credence to break the law overseas and then apparently getting the government to intervene to stop your sentence. According to a Cayman newspaper, Skylar Mack, 18, who knowingly broke COVID/Quarantine rules in the tropical island will now only serve half of her sentence rather than the entire one. The move comes after Mack ‘s American grandmother reportedly sent the Trump Administration a letter claiming that Mack ‘s rights were being violated and that the punishment didn’t fit the crime. Ah yes, to go to a foreign country and then tell them how to run their country and whether or nor their laws are just vs unjust.

Flights from the UK into New York now have one restriction

Travelers from the U.K hoping to get into New York City must now test negative for the novel Coronavirus in order to board planes. According to Delta and British Airways, all flights into the Big Apple will now have the mandated requirement after Andrew Cuomo summoned airline execs in an emergency call this week. The emergency meeting was called after the U.K has been found to have an even more serious strain of the Coronavirus. According to officials, this particular strain of the Coronavirus is at least 70% more contagious and is believed to be spreading quite fast (as a result we’ve also had to suspend all in-person services we offer in the country.) There were at least 25 flights that landed from London at JFK this afternoon in NYC alone.

Not so fast on that COVID-19 relief bill, Americans are getting bamboozled and bamboozled hard

The much discussed COVID-19 relief bill is about to be voted on but uh Americans might want to pay close attention to what we’re about to share with you. In the monster 5,000 page bill, it is abundantly clear that our American friends are getting played by the government. In the middle of a pandemic; arguments by the GOP that the small payments to Americans are already to generous, and one Mitch McConnell with his claims that such aren’t cost-effective — turns out there’s more to the story. According to the massive bill, there is quite literally billions of dollars going to foreign powers; Israel, Cambodia, an apparent Asian resource project (we’re not entirely sure what that actually is), and various other causes around the world. While that seems generous and all, perhaps, many ...

The U.S has passed a COVID-19 relief bill here’s what you need to know

Sunday marked a big day in Washington even though many expected more. On Sunday shortly after 5pm, members of the U.S Senate and House finally reportedly came to an agreement that would allow a COVID-19 relief bill to pass. The $908B bill includes $600 direct payments to Americans; extended unemployment insurance, and payments to schools and the like who need financial assistance as brought on by the pandemic. https://twitter.com/NBCPolitics/status/1340794754095837185?s=20 It marks an end to a bizarre standoff as the millionaires in Washington throw a bone to struggling Americans who are coming to terms with the fact Washington does not represent them.
