New COVID testing sites are opening today in New York City, as officials across the region and the country scramble to meet a rising tide of cases fueled by the omicron variant.

Today’s testing site openings in NYC come one day after city officials reported a new single-day record for positive cases, as more shows on Broadway were forced to cancel performances, and as the NHL paused its season.

  1. Asian people gets daily attack because of the covid they think it comes from, yet omicron comes from south Africa , not a single attack to south african people or Delta from Europe. Yet they still pick on Asian people.

  2. Wakeup NY Bill A416 will put people in Camps who do not take the Jab, Hilter did the same, if you want to Save America and your Children its time to Remove these People from office, no vote needed.

  3. NY Assembly Bill A416: "RELATES TO THE REMOVAL AND DETENTION OF CASES, CONTACTS AND CARRIERS AT THE ORDER OF THE GOVERNOR" still think this is about a virus?

  4. So you use a faulty test to "diagnose" a variant for an illness with a 99% survival rate and low incidence of severe symptoms. If you test positive with none or mild symptoms, you're told to quarantine for 14 days, and then proceed with living your life. With stats like those, testing is senseless. These people voluntarily lined up is so sad. The fraud is that they want you to willingly get tested with their ineffective and inaccurate tests so that they can continue to inflate numbers, conflating "cases" with sickness. The majority of positive tests are from people with no symptoms or mild symptoms, but their reporting would lead you to believe that the high number of cases are "hospitalizations" and that is far from the truth. "Case" just means positive test, which is very different from ever developing severe symptoms. Now get a vaccine, and that's where you'll be risking a chance of severe symptoms.

  5. There is no real test for ” covid19″.

    The RT PCR test cannot even detect 1 whole transmissible virus.
    It cannot be used to diagnose disease.
    Its use to create “cases” is fraud.

  6. Let me understand this, people are standing hours in cool temperature outdoors to get tested for covid? Has common sense left people's minds🤔? They should be passing out what people in the white house are taking instead of what they are offering. Can't wait for the results from more testing stations as they become AVAILABLE & the distribution of 5 million free test kits. Incentives for vaccinations, threats telecast live on tv by Biden & Fauci of covid repercussions knowing 2 weeks prior it existed before the general public was notified worldwide. Ever get the feeling of being set up?

  7. If you read this, you cannot say you didn't know…the LORD JESUS is coming soon, to call His own Home, and to take vengeance on the wicked, don't be numbered with the wicked. JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.

    Romans 1 17-23 17For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. 18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    1John 1:5-10 5This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness to light and light to darkness, who replace bitter with sweet and sweet with bitter.

    Matthew 13:27-30 27So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

    2Peter 3:7-13 7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

    Jude 1:20-25 20But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. 24Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

    2Thessalonians 1:8-10 8In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

    Matthew 7:20-26 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

    Proverbs 2:22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

    Romans 10:9-10 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    ONLY JESUS SAVES..
