Just an FYI

In order to fly, you need to be vaxxed.
This means that the person that brought it to the US is vaxxed.

So let’s be insane, keep doing the same stuff over and over again, (getting vaxxed), and expect different results.

No one has ever said that if a person is vaccinated they can’t spread it. The point of being vaccinated is that it greatly decreases hospitalization and death

I agree with your point

But you do not have to be vaxxed to fly.
If you are not a citizen/legal resident, you can’t enter the country (not just fly) if you are not vaxxed except for certain exemptions. The article doesn’t say whether or not this person is a US citizen or exempt from being vaccinated.

I do agree that vaccines are not the way to go at this rate.

Can you not read?

Didn’t u read that the guy who got it was vaccinated?
So what is the point?
It did not prevent him from catching it.
So stop the nonsense

The truth

They won’t talk about how you cant enter the country if you are unvaccinated, will they? In other words, who is spreading this variant?…..

YES !!
This news is like music to my ears !!

Thank Gd they were vaccinated
December 1, 2021 3:58 pm

Had they not been vaccinated, their symptoms would be so much worse.

Get vaccinated!! Get your booster shot!!

Gd forbid we have a repeat of March 2020.

Fascinating

So, by this account a doubly- vaccinated brought this OMNICON variant to the US. Yet, the govt is trying to hijack this as some reason to get vaccinated. Furthermore, by all accounts, this ‘monster variant’ actually causes mostly mild symptoms, so it may be a better variant to catch. Regardless, BigPharma and their gov’t lackey Fauci are trying to use this non-issue to create panic, to turn Americans against each other in a bid to buy $$$$$$$$$$$ more pharmaceutical products. One day, the full story will be revealed. And like the coverup at Chernobyl, and the fake ‘Weapons of Mass… Read more »

Guess what!?!!
Omicron also exists outside of the United States

The majority of people getting sick are from the vaccinated ones.

Not News
December 1, 2021 4:49 pm

Just with all the ‘big news’ regarding this virus after the first three months when were still learning what it was and who affects…this is not news worthy

If your American you don’t need a vax
December 1, 2021 5:43 pm

Only non Americans for now need a vax to come but Americans only need antigen test not even pcr and I actually came to New York from South Africa that same week and may or may not have had it who knows and who cares the vax didn’t help anyone anyways

We're done

The original 3 cases of this variant in Botswana were identified in those who had two doses of the vaccine. In Israel, one who was triple vaxxed spread it to another person who was triple vaxxed. It got into *Australia * via a fully vaccinated individual. Seems like the vaccines are doing the opposite of what they were intended to do. So yeah, keep pointing fingers to people who either have natural immunity, are medically exempt, or have another reason that is non of your business to know, for not getting the vaccine and “SpReaDinG nEw vAriNanTs”. Because it’s obviously… Read more »

The anti vaccine comments here are horrifying and embarrassing.

If any one sane is reading this, I promise not all chabad people are right wing conspiracy theorists!! There are liberal, educated, kind, pro vaccine people in this community, we’re just a minority in a sea of religious extremists, but we do exist.

and that’s after skipping the name of the next Greek letter “Xi”
so they wouldn’t offend the Chinese President

how can God fearing people play with their health like this taking unneeded experimental medicine?
