Guangzhou Patients Must Be COVID Negative For Admission?!

Guangzhou appears to have reinstated the Health Code, requiring patients and their caregivers to test negative for COVID-19 before being admitted to a hospital!

 

Guangzhou Patients Must Be COVID Negative For Admission?!

The city of Guangzhou has apparently reinstated the Chinese COVID-19 Health Code requirements from 2 December 2023 onwards.

In a video translated and posted by Jennifer Zeng (archive), the Deputy Director and Spokesperson for the Guangzhou Health Commission Zhang Yi appears to announce an immediate requirement for patients and their caregivers to present a Green Health Code, in order to enter all types of medical institutions.

Effective immediately, patients visiting all levels and types of medical institutions in Guangzhou City and its districts must present a green health code for entry. Dec 2, Guangzhou, Guangdong.

Zhang Yi : From now on, all levels & types of medical institutions in Guangzhou City & its districts for outpatient and emergency department visits will require a green health code for entry.

Bizarrely, patients and their caregivers are expected to undertake PCR nuclei tests for COVID-19, and show a negative test result within the past 24 hours to gain admission!

Zhang Yi : Newly admitted inpatients and their accompanying personnel must present a negative nucleic acid test result from within the past 24 hours for admission.

Less controversially, she called on fever clinics to operate at their maximum capacity, and conduct nucleic acid (PCR) tests on patients.

Zhang Yi : Fever clinics should operate to their fullest capacity. The role of the previously established 114 standardised fever clinics should be fully utilised.

Strengthen the staffing of medical personnel in fever clinics, optimise the waiting area settings and consultation process.

Conduct nucleic acid testing for visiting patients, and implement graded & categorised diagnosis and treatment.

Not Only Guangzhou Patients Must Be COVID Negative For Admission?

China has been experiencing a surge of respiratory illnesses that have alarmed many people, especially when it appeared to cause pneumonia in many children.

The WHO called on China to provide more information, after health monitoring groups like the Program for Monitoring Emerging Diseases (ProMED) reported clusters of undiagnosed pneumonia in children in north China.

China responded within 24 hours, stating that it has not detected any new or usual pathogens causing this surge of respiratory illness, with clusters of pneumonia being blamed on a bacteria – Mycoplasma pneumoniae which has been circulating since May, as well as influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and adenovirus that have been circulating since October.

While the negative COVID-19 test looks really bizarre, it  is possible that the Chinese government has instituted this requirement to prevent these patients, who are already suffering from pneumonia, from being infected with COVID-19 as well.

Even so, Jennifer Zeng reported (archive) that the Chinese Health Code requirement is not just being reactivated in Guangzhou, but for the entire Guangdong province, as well as the Beijing, Sichuan, Fujian, Shaanxi, and Zhejiang provinces!

The health code is a mobile app used by the CCP during the three-year COVID pandemic to control people’s movements. If your health code turns red or yellow, you can’t go anywhere.

But it’s not just Guangzhou. From what we know so far, Beijing, Sichuan, Fujian, Guangdong, Shaanxi, and Zhejiang Province are also implementing it.

So it is possible that the Chinese government at least suspects that some of these cases of respiratory illnesses may be due to a surge in COVID-19 cases.

To be clear – this reimplementation of the Chinese Health Code appears to be limited to patients attempting to seek medical assistance in clinics and hospitals. It does not appear that the Health Code is being reimplemented to restrict other types of movement in China.

However, reports of a surge in respiratory illnesses, and this (partial) reimplementation of the Health Code requirement will likely put a damper on the revival of the Chinese tourism industry. The Chinese government recently implemented visa-free travel for 6 new countries in an effort to boost tourism.

Jordan Brister : Student’s Cause of Death Revealed!

The official cause of death for 18 year-old student Jordan Brister has been revealed, confirming that he did not die from any vaccine side effect!

 

Claim : Jordan Brister Died From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Jordan Brister died suddenly and unexpectedly, people immediately claimed that the 18 year-old Las Vegas student died suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS!

Another one #DiedSuddenly

ANOTHER Las Vegas teenager has collapsed and died while at school from a sudden heart attack. 💉☠️💉☠️
“Jordan Tyler Brister suddenly and unexpectedly suffered cardiac arrest while at school with no explanation as to why” #diedsuddenly #VaccineDeath

Nothing to see here 👀 ..and don’t even begin to question what the connection could possibly be 💉

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth :  Cause Of Death For Jordan Brister Was Not Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all sudden deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Jordan Brister Was Found Unconscious After Gym Class

18 year-old Jordan Brister was a 12th grade student at the Amplus Academy in Las Vegas, who was found unresponsive in his school’s bathroom after attending gym class on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

As he was suspected to have suffered a sudden cardiac arrest, Amplus Academy staff performed CPR on him until paramedics arrived and transported him to the Southern Hills Hospital.

Despite the efforts of first responders and the medical team at Southern Hills Hospital, Jordan Brister passed away on Sunday, January 8, 2023.

Fact #2 : Jordan Brister’s Cause Of Death Was Pneumonia + Tracheitis

The Clark County Coroner’s Office conducted an autopsy of Jordan Brister, and released its results on Friday, February 24.

According to the Clark County Coroner’s Office, Jordan Brister died from acute bacterial pneumonia and tracheitis (an infection of his windpipe, the trachea) caused by the bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus.

The coroner also said that Brister’s manner of death was natural.

Needless to say, this confirms once and for all that Jordan Brister did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect.

Fact #3 : Jordan Brister Donated His Organs

This fact has no relevance to the topic, but I felt it is important to know that even in death, Jordan Brister made a difference – he donated his organs.

The Southern Hills Hospital held an honor walk on January 11, with care providers lining the hospital hallways as Brister was transferred to an operating room to donate his organs.

Staff said so many people came out to support Brister that staff members had trouble fitting in the hallways. Brister’s family said their goodbyes as he went into surgery.

Anytime an organ is donated, it helps change the track of someone’s life. He gets to live on in these individuals whose lives are impacted and saved.
– Dr. Shahid Ahmad, Southern Hills Hospital

Fact #4 : Unknown If Jordan Brister Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Jordan Brister was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, and the Amplus Academy, where he studied, does not have any COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Jordan Brister received the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Jordan Brister was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean he died from the COVID-19 vaccine, as he would have received his doses many months ago!

He cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #5 : Claims Of Teachers / Students Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of teacher or student deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen cases I fact checked recently.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next teacher or student tragedy…

Did Michael J. Fox Die Suddenly From COVID-19?!

Did Michael J. Fox just die suddenly in a hospital from COVID-19 pneumonia?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Michael J. Fox Died Suddenly From COVID-19!

People are sharing YouTube and Facebook videos claiming that Michael J. Fox died in a hospital from COVID-19 pneumonia, with titles like :

Sad News, Michael J. Fox Passed Away Expected Soon Family Prepared To Say Goodbye!

Recommended : Is Chris Hemsworth Taking Break Over Alzheimer’s Gene News?!

 

Truth : Michael J. Fox Did Not Die From COVID-19!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Michael J. Fox Is Still Alive + Well!

Michael J. Fox (born Michael Andrew Fox on June 9, 1961) is very much alive and well. He last tweeted on January 26, and shared an Instagram photo on February 15.

He also appeared at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, January 20, at the premiere of a new documentary about his life, career and work as a public advocate for Parkinson’s research.

As many of us know, Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 – a fact which he disclosed only in 1998. Despite his worsening symptoms, he continued to act until he was forced to retire in 2020.

But the most recent sighting of Fox was on February 19, 2023, when Lea Thompson posted a photo of her Back to the Future co-stars – Christopher Lloyd, Michael J. Fox, and Thomas F. Wilson , taken at Fan Expo Portland.

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported his death.

Even though Michael J. Fox has been out of the limelight since his 2020 retirement, he is still a celebrity, and the media regularly reports on his activities.

Just a week ago, TODAY wrote an article on his twin daughter’s birthday, based on nothing more than an Instagram photo he posted on February 15, 2023!

If Michael J. Fox really did die, whether from COVID-19 pneumonia or a car accident, the worldwide media would have reported on it.

No legitimate media outlet reported that Michael J. Fox died in a hospital from any cause. Only a bunch of small-time YouTube and Facebook channels.

Fact #3 : COVID-19 Patient Photos Were Not Of Michael J. Fox

The fake video creators used photos of COVID-19 patients to convey the perception that Michael J. Fox died from COVID-19 pneumonia.

This photo, for example, does not show Michael J. Fox being intubated for COVID-19 pneumonia, but is a stock photograph by Kiryl Lis, called “Intubated adult white man under ventilator lying in coma in intensive care department. Patient in critical state.

Recommended : Did Simon Cowell Just Die In A Car Accident?!

This photo is a screenshot from a CBS8 video showing a COVID-19 patient being transported in a hospital. It appears to have been recorded on September 23, 2021.

Again, that is not Michael J. Fox on that hospital bed. The screenshot was just misappropriated to make you believe that’s him.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Fake Celebrity News

This is yet another example of fake celebrity news created to generate page views and money through advertising, just like these examples:

Santino Blanco : Why Face of AR Vaccine Effort Died

Santino Godoy Blanco – the 4 year-old face of Argentina’s child vaccination campaign tragically died.

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Santino Godoy Blanco Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Santino Godoy Blanco fell sick and died, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the poster boy for Argentina’s child vaccination campaign died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Heartbreaking: Santino Blanco, the four-year-old boy who had been the face of #Argentina’s national #vaccination campaign #diedsuddenly this morning. This is #murder.

These parents have made this 💉 a religion and they are all willing to sacrifice their healthy children to pharma gods.  Shameful and disgusting.

A new slap from Israel to the COVID-19 vaccines, while in Argentina, 4-year-old Santino Godoy Blanco, who was the central figure of the National Vaccination Campaign, died!

Recommended : Did Aaron Carter Die From Vaccine Sudden Death?!

 

Truth : Santino Godoy Blanco Did NOT Die From Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

But before I start, I would like to point out that it is unbelievable how low they would go. They didn’t even bat an eye in lying about a young boy’s death. They have no shame at all.

Fact #1 : Santino Godoy Blanco Died From Pneumonia

Santino Godoy Blanco, who hailed from the town of San Miguel, had been unwell for a week with a high fever that persisted despite being given ibuprofen.

His mother, Agustina Blanco, took him to the Dr. Raúl F. Larcade Municipal Hospital at dawn on Wednesday, November 2, where the doctor said that he had a viral fever, and sent him home.

Unfortunately, Santino’s fever persisted and he started to throw up. He was Reliverán (Metoclopramide) for his vomiting, but eventually went back to the hospital after his condition did not improve.

Santino’s condition continued to deteriorate to Thursday – he kept vomiting, and was weak and not able to eat. Once again, his mother brought him to the hospital, but this time, Santino was so weak, he was no longer able to sit up and had to lie down.

After 10 minutes, the nurse told his mother that Santino needed oxygen, explaining that the doctor who checked him believed he was suffering from bronchospasm, but the three pulse oximeter sensors they tried didn’t work. Santino then went into shock, and they tried but failed to revive him after 1.5 hours.

After Santino Blanco died, an autopsy was conducted on his body, which revealed that he died from pneumonia.

In short, Santino Godoy Blanca’s cause of death was pneumonia, not COVID-19 or the COVID-19 vaccine.

It was also not a “sudden death”, as anti-vaccination activists keep claiming. Sadly, Santino suffered for a long time before dying from pneumonia.

Fact #2 : Argentinian Vaccination Campaign Was Not For COVID-19

Now, I should point out that the vaccination campaign that Santino Godoy Blanco was featured in, was not for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Santino was a model for the Argentinian National Ministry of Health’s vaccination campaign for measles, rubella, mumps and polio (sarampión, rubéola, paperas y polio).

All those nasty antivaxxers mocking his family or the boy for promoting something that “killed him” got it completely wrong. So you have to ask yourself – why should you listen to people who either lied, or just made up that claim?

Fact #3 : Unknown If Santino Blanco Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Just because Santino Godoy Blanco was a model for a vaccination campaign, does not mean he was actually vaccinated against COVID-19.

It’s no different from how actors may appear to be macho in a movie, but are quite different people in real life.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Argentina, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #4 : Argentina Uses Sinopharm For Child COVID-19 Vaccinations

Anti-vaccination activists are falsely blaming Santino Godoy Bianco’s death on mRNA vaccines.

Even if Santino Godoy Blanco was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he never received an mRNA vaccine, because Argentina only approved the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine for use in children between 3 and 11 years in age.

The Sinopharm COVILO vaccine, also known as BBIBP-CorV or just BIBP, is an inactivated virus vaccine made from actual SARS-CoV-2 virus grown in Vero cells, and killed using β-propiolactone. This vaccine does not use mRNA technology.

Fact #5 : Pneumonia Is A Common Cause Of Childhood Death

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that children do not die from pneumonia.

The truth is – pneumonia is a common cause of death in very young children, accounting for 14% of all deaths of children under 5 years old.

In fact, the WHO points out that pneumonia is the single largest infectious cause of death in children worldwide, killing 740,180 children in 2019 alone.

Pneumonia is a form of acute respiratory infection by viruses, bacteria or fungi that infect the lungs, and makes breathing difficult and reduces the amount of oxygen the child receives.

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s pneumonia, cardiac arrest or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.

It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…
