Russia, Which Closed Its Border in January, Has Coronavirus Under Control

Some kind of connection here.

Russia, which closed most of its border ports back in January, has registered just 20 coronavirus cases, many of them Russians returning from Italy, and zero deaths.

It’s almost like border controls work.

At the end of January, Russia announced it had closed the entirety of its 2,600-mile border with China. Moscow also asked all returning citizens to self-quarantine and banned Chinese citizens from entering the country.

The result is that Russia has avoided the kind of panic that has gripped numerous other European countries with porous borders, most notably Italy (ruled by a left-wing open borders government) which now has 9,172 coronavirus cases and has recorded 463 deaths.

The entire nation of Italy has also now been placed under de facto quarantine, with all public gatherings banned and at least 16 million people prevented from leaving the north of the country.

Contrast that with Russia, which thanks to its strong border measures has recorded just 20 coronavirus cases, most of whom were Russians returning from Italy and some of whom have already fully recovered. Zero people have died.

Unlike other European countries, most of which allow people to enter from Italy without even testing them, Russia has also enforced strict quarantine procedures, threatening anyone who violates their self-quarantine with 5 years in prison.

Despite the escalating infection and death toll, European Union leaders have repeatedly insisted that no border controls will be implemented.

Russia has also firmly ignored the World Health Organization’s demands that profiling be avoided in order to reduce “stigmatization.”

As we highlighted last month, Moscow police and subway workers were checking passengers believed to be Chinese for signs of coronavirus, leading Beijing to file an official complaint.

Unlike other major European countries such as Italy, Germany and France, whatever Russia is doing appears to be working and Moscow certainly won’t be making any apologies.

Almost a Quarter of COVID Patients in England Are Being Treated For Something Else

Almost a quarter of people in hospitals in England who are being counted as ‘COVID patients’ are actually being treated for other illnesses, according to a new report.

“Health service statistics show there were 6,146 NHS beds taken up by people who were Covid positive on September 14th, the latest date data is available for,” reports the Daily Mail.

“But just 4,721 patients (77%) were primarily being treated for the virus, with the remaining 1,425 receiving care for other illnesses or injuries. They could include patients who’ve had a fall or even new mothers who tested positive after giving birth.”

In the Midlands area meanwhile, a full third of patients supposedly being treated for COVID were actually in hospital for different reasons.

The report also acknowledges that as many of half of patients who enter hospital only test positive for COVID after being admitted for an unrelated illness.

The difference between the ‘official’ figure and the real one is important because the UK government has said it won’t hesitate to re-enforce mask mandates, vaccine passports and a new lockdown this winter if hospitalizations continue to rise.

As we previously highlighted, despite the fact that the vaccine was supposed to prevent hospitalizations, many of the same experts who lobbied for the previous lockdowns are claiming that numbers are on a trajectory that will mandate new lockdown restrictions.

Just 24 hours after health secretary Sajid Javid asserted that they had been completely scrapped, the government reversed its position, saying that vaccine passports will in fact form a “first-line defence” against a winter wave of coronavirus.

Back in December, the same government told the public that there was no plan whatsoever to introduce vaccine passports even as they were paying private corporations to build the system.

Video: Inside Edition Finds That Majority Of NYC Restaurants Are Not Enforcing Vaccine Passport Mandate

Only 4 out of 15 eateries asked for papers

CBS Investigate show Inside Edition has discovered that most restaurants in New York City are not enforcing vaccine passport mandates, which came into effect in late August.

Reporters shot undercover video and found that 11 out of 15 restaurants seated them inside without asking for proof of vaccination, going directly against the mandate by Mayor Bill de Blasio, who ordered businesses to begin implementing vaccine checkpoints or face $1,000 fines.

Watch:

While polls have found a majority of Americans are on board with vaccine passports, it’s clear that the actual implementation of them is a different matter.

Many establishments do not have the staff or means to check the papers of every person coming in, and after months of lockdowns, many simply cannot afford to turn people away.

Critics of the system, including Dr. Drew, have asserted that vaccine passports which ban the unvaccinated from venues like bars and restaurants are a new form of “segregation.”

    Poll: Almost Half Of Americans Disapprove Of Biden Vaccine Mandates

    But half are fully onboard with it

    A Quinnipiac poll has found that almost half of Americans (48%) believe that Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates “go too far,” and that a slight majority are in opposition to it.

    Quinnipiac noted that a “slight majority of Americans (51 – 48 percent) disapprove of President Biden’s plan to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for millions of Americans in the public and private sectors. Republicans disapprove 84 – 13 percent, independents disapprove 56 – 44 percent, and Democrats approve 89 – 10 percent.”

    The survey found that 10 percent think the mandate does not go far enough, while 39 percent think it’s about right.

    Obviously, however, this means that around half of Americans are fully on board with the mandates.

    As we noted earlier this week, a OnePoll survey found that vaccinated Americans are far more likely to permanently sever relationships with friends over their opinion on the COVID-19 jab than those who haven’t been vaccinated.

    America now faces that reckoning with Biden’s plan to impose federal vaccine mandates on every company that employs over 100 people.

    As we previously reported, Police and firefighters are among the groups who are resisting, bringing lawsuits against the mandates.

    There has also been significant resistance among military service members, who will be mandated to take the shots.

    Republican attorneys general from 24 states, almost half the country, have threatened lawsuits against Biden if the mandate takes effect.

    Earlier this week, Joe Biden’s Commerce Secretary claimed that “nobody is being forced” to get vaccinated, despite last week’s announcement that millions of Americans will be mandated to take the shot in order to go to work.

    “We are not being forced,” Raimondo again claimed, stating “You can work from home, get tested on a weekly basis,” and adding “I think this is smart public policy and great leadership by the president.”
