Corona Digest

February 9, 2021


Note from Cindy:

Today is the 40th birthday of my oldest daughter, Carly.

I'd like to give her a shout-out because she is a beautiful human-being and a teacher. She's been teaching 8th grade for several years and has won awards and she hates this distance "learning," she yearns to be back in the classroom with her students.

Happy Birthday, Carly!

More Nursing Home Deaths After Vaccination Spark Concern

Summary by Cindy Olmstead

A nursing home in Spain where the Pfizer mRNA vaccine was administered January 13, 2021, is reporting that all 78 residents have now tested positive for COVID-19, and at least seven have died.

While the reports are not saying whether the COVID cases and deaths are related to the vaccine, a pathologist at Wuhan University told Global Times that “it is possible that the vaccination causes positive IgM antibodies, which is a natural process. IgM is usually the first antibody produced by the immune system when a virus attacks.”

Regarding the deaths, it’s also possible that those were coincidental, the pathologist said, although “the use of mRNA-based vaccines carries the risk of causing abnormal immune dysfunction, allergy or even death especially among the elderly and people with underlying diseases.”

"They" don't know because technically, the covid jabs are still in clinical trial stage until January 2023...I don't know about anyone else, but I'd like to NOT be a guinea pig for profit.

Tenney: Cuomo Should Resign over Nursing Homes

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox News @ Night,” Rep.-Elect Claudia Tenney (R-NY) called for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) to resign over his handling of nursing homes during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tenney said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:45] “Gov. Cuomo should be held accountable. I called for his resignation as the governor. Because this is a clear violation of the law and could potentially be a criminal act. It isn’t the first time I’ve called for Gov. Cuomo’s resignation…I think the governor has to pay the price for this. I think we need a new governor.”

Newsom dealt big blow to his authoritarianism from Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court dealt a major blow to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s executive authority when it knocked down California’s ban on indoor worship, ruling that the governor’s pandemic restrictions unfairly targeted churches in violation of the First Amendment.

The 6-3 ruling issued late Friday prompted Newsom’s administration to release new guidelines Saturday permitting places of worship to hold indoor services at 25% capacity in purple- or red-tier counties and at 50% capacity in orange- or yellow-tier counties. The Supreme Court left intact the state’s prohibition on indoor singing and chanting, though Pasadena-based Harvest Rock Church, one of the plaintiffs, plans to petition for the right to sing indoors. In another wrinkle, Santa Clara County said it will continue to ban indoor worship because its health orders are different than the state’s.

Although some California religious institutions plan to continue holding online services for the time being, others opened their doors for Sunday services.

The ruling is likely to embolden other groups fighting Newsom in court who argue they, too, are being singled out. Among them:

  • Let Them Play CA. The group sued Newsom for banning high school sports but allowing college and professional sports teams to compete.
  • The California Fitness Alliance. The group on Friday questioned why Newsom “continues to bend the rules subjectively” by allowing one-on-one personal training indoors, but not indoor gym workouts.
  • The California Craft Brewers Association. The group is suing Newsom for “arbitrary” rules that allow wine tasting rooms to serve wine by itself but force brewpubs to serve food with beer.

Newsom offered his perspective on reopening at a Wednesday press conference.

  • Newsom: “We want to do it safely and a lot of great data has been provided by the same groups that are suing us. If I was concerned about lawsuits, I would have collapsed a year ago. We receive dozens of them every week.”
