President Joe Biden plans to announces new restrictions on travel in the wake of the first case of the ‘omicron’ variant of covid-19 being discovered in the US.

As The Hill reports:

The steps come as the first known U.S. case of the omicron variant was detected in California on Wednesday in a person who had returned more than a week ago from South Africa, where the variant was first detected.

Biden is expected to announce Thursday that his administration, which has already imposed a ban on international travelers from eight southern African nations, will further tighten testing requirements on all other international travelers entering the country.

The new testing policy, which goes into effect early next week, will require international air travelers to present a negative COVID-19 test within 24 hours of their flight, regardless of vaccination status or nationality.

That shortens the time from the current rule, which requires fully vaccinated travelers to present a negative test within three days of their flight. International travelers are already required to be fully vaccinated, but that vaccination policy doesn’t apply to American citizens.

The new rules come as Biden’s popularity continues to wane and he faces the winter season with no end in sight to the pandemic he promised to finally end.

How many times have we EVER eradicated a coronavirus? The common cold, a coronavirus, is still with us and always will be. The Media for political purposes is hyping this virus up into The Black Plague of the 21st century. Sure, some will die of it. The annual flu always kills some, as well. But the CDC itself now admits that this virus is ~99% survivable. And lookee here: the Grand Vax does not protect!

As long as these bastards are in power and want to perpetuate their position of power, all these variants of the corona virus ( or another kind of virus) will be used to control us. Do not trust too much , the twisted or skewed news from the mainstream media….they no longer announce factual news but their opinion and agenda.
About the virus, as long as they are not weaponized, our natural immune system of our bodies will handle the self-limiting viral infection.
DO NOT BE AFRAID.

The liar Biden got the so-called covid – 19 vaccine . He probably got a vitamin so people can think that he got the covid vaccine.

Fauci is a doctor only because of his degree …..how many patients did he actually treat? He is simply a political puppet of the administration, made to look like an authority because of the “Dr.” title…. DO NOT LISTEN TO HIS LIES….
