Omicron COVID-19 variant identified in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A person in California became the first in the U.S. to have an identified case of the omicron variant of COVID-19, a U.S. official told The Associated Press on Wednesday. It comes as scientists continue to study the risks posed by the new strain of the virus.

In a morning news conference from the White House, Dr. Anthony Fauci confirmed the first case of the omicron variant is in San Francisco.

Dr. Fauci said the person was a traveler who returned from South Africa on Nov. 22 and tested positive on Nov. 29. The person was vaccinated but had not received a booster shot.

The Biden administration moved late last month to restrict travel from Southern Africa where the variant was first identified and had been widespread. Clusters of cases have also been identified in about two dozen other nations. The official could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity... Read More

Cellphone video from Michigan school shooting shows students escape classroom

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Dramatic cellphone video shows students huddled in a classroom at the Michigan high school where another student allegedly went on a shooting spree that left four students dead and seven others injured. The fourth student died Wednesday.

The video apparently shot by a student in a classroom shows the frightening moments as the students waited to be rescued.

There's a knock at the door and students can hear someone yell.

"Sheriff's office. It's safe to come out."

But some students are fearful and concerned it might be a trick.

"We're not willing to take that risk right now."

When the person outside the door uses the word "bro" another student says that's a "red flag."

Panicked students rush toward a classroom window and jump out running toward an officer who guides them into another building assuring them they are safe.

It is still unclear exactly who was at the classroom door... Read More

For those of you, like this writer, who has never heard of it here's a little background... Read More
