A different virus classified by the World Health Organisation as having ‘pandemic potential’ is spreading more than usual due to care shortages caused by COVID.

The London Telegraph reports that the Nipah virus, which attacks the brain and has an up to 75% fatality rate, has killed a twelve year old boy who was shunted around five different hospitals because of COVID.

It is believed that the boy came into contact with close to 200 people, with two health workers and the boys mother already in isolation after developing the symptoms, which are similar to those of COVID.

The Nipah virus has been known since 1998, but has been contained, with the worst outbreak occurring twenty years ago in West Bengal when 45 out of 66 people infected with the virus died.

The bat-borne virus was the inspiration for the movie Contagion, and while more deadly than COVID it spreads less efficiently.

Health authorities in Kerala where the boy died are urging people to get tested for Nipah, with lockdowns being implemented in the surrounding regions.

“People should continue to wear masks and practice social distancing to stop the Nipah virus from spreading. In hospitals, doctors and nurses can also wear PPE,” said Kerla doctor Arun N Madhavan. 

The Telegraph notes that “There are currently no drugs available to treat Nipah, although the WHO has identified the virus as a priority disease for the development of a vaccine.”

In June, The Oxford University team of virologists who developed the COVID AstraZeneca vaccine announced that they had made a “big step forward” in testing the Nipah vaccine.

    Survey Finds More Than HALF Of U.S. Companies To Impose Vaccine mandates

    At least a third could have ‘no jab, no job’ policies by year’s end

    A survey conducted by risk management and advisory company Willis Towers Watson has found that more than half of U.S. companies expect to impose COVID vaccine mandates on their employees by the end of the year.

    The survey of 1000 companies, employing close to 10 million people, found that 52 percent of employers are planning some form of vaccine mandate for workers.

    The figure would be a massive increase on the 21 percent of employers who currently have mandates in place.

    The survey also found that almost one-third of employers say they are planning to make full vaccination a requirement to enter the workplace building.

    A further 21 percent said could make vaccination a requirement for any new hires, the literal enacting of a ‘no jab, no job’ policy.

    The survey also noted that 59 percent of employers are already tracking workers’ vaccination status, with a further 19 percent planning to do so by the end of the year.

    Of those already tracking vaccination status, 62 percent require workers to submit proof of vaccination.

    The survey also found that “Eight in 10 respondents (80%) require employees to wear masks indoors at any location. Another 13% are planning or considering doing so.”

    Willis Towers Watson’s population health leader Dr Jeff Levin-Sherz commented that “We expect even more employers to institute vaccine mandates in the wake of FDA approval of the Pfizer vaccine.”

    “We have reached a point in the pandemic where employers that have worked hard to make it easy for employees to get vaccinated are also considering approaches to make it more difficult for employees to remain unvaccinated,” Levin-Scherz added.

    As we noted last week, 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.

    The latest findings, however, highlight that the government doesn’t even need to be involved for vaccine mandates to become the norm.

    It remains to be seen whether resistance will form among private sector workers, as it has among first responders and the military.

    Despite Mandates, Biden Commerce Secretary Claims “Nobody Is Being Forced” To Take COVID Vaccine

    “There’s always been a choice: If you do not want to get vaccinated, you can work from home, shop online.”

    Joe Biden’s Commerce Secretary has 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.

    Gina Raimondo made the comments Tuesday in an interview on MSNBC, after host Stephanie Ruhle proclaimed she was “puzzled by people that continue to say they’re forced to get vaccinated here.”

    Watch:

    The pair seriously suggested that anyone who doesn’t want to or can’t get vaccinated can simply stay at home and never go outside.

    “There’s always been a choice: If you do not want to get vaccinated, you can work from home. You can homeschool your children. You can shop online,” Ruhle declared, adding “If you didn’t want to vaccinate your kids, you can homeschool, and people have done it for years.”

    “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.” 

    There you have it, if you don’t take the vaccine just stay at home and have no life, no one is forcing you. In fact, it’s a long standing American tradition.

    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.

    In the latest example a US Army Lieutenant Colonel resigned and gave up his pension after more than 19 years of service, labelling the mandate “unethical, immoral and tyrannical.”

    Lt Col Paul Douglas Hague wrote a now viral resignation letter, explaining how he will not “sit still and allow a serum to be injected into my flesh against my will and better judgement.”

    Hague, who is stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, further declared “It is impossible for this so-called ‘vaccine’ to have been studied adequately to determine the long term effects,” adding “it simply has not existed for enough time and any claim otherwise is blatantly ignorant and likely an outright lie driven by negligent political agenda.”

    The Lt Col further described the vaccine mandate as part of “an ideologically Marxist takeover of the military and United States government.”

    “We are watching the fall of liberty at this moment,” Hague asserted.

    Biden Surgeon General Claims Vaccine Mandates Are “Part Of A Long Tradition” In U.S.

    “This is what we’ve got to do to go back to normal.”

    Published

    Appearing on NBC News Sunday, Biden Surgeon General Vivek Murthy ludicrously claimed that the government putting requirements on people to take vaccines is a long held American tradition.

    Meet The Press host Chuck Todd asked Murthy why Biden has flip flopped on vaccine mandates after previously saying the government shouldn’t get involved in such policies.

    Murthy pulled out the stock answer, “from the beginning the president and all of us have said we’ve got to use every lever we have in order to fight this pandemic. And that’s what you see happening right now.”

    Murthy added that the coming months would see the Biden adminstration “expanding the vaccination effort through a combination of mandates and access.”

    When Todd noted that “some people take the mandate as not a moment of unity, but as sort of a divisive weapon,” Murthy replied “I’d say, Chuck, that the requirements for vaccination are part of a long tradition that we have in this country of taking steps as a collective to keep people safe.”

    He reiterated, “we have a tradition in our country, Chuck, of taking steps, you know, as a collective to protect the broader community. And that’s what these requirements represent.” 

    Murthy added, “we know that when people wear masks all together, that gives us our greatest chance of reducing infection. When people get vaccinated, that gives us our greatest chance of keeping workplaces and schools safe. And that’s what we’ve got to do.”

    Huh? It’s hard to recall that long held American tradition.

    Watch:

    In a further appearance on CNN, Murthy claimed that many businesses are “relieved” that Biden has placed mandates on them to get employees vaccinated, adding “this is what we’ve got to do to go back to normal.”
