Everyone Screamed When They Saw The “Mask” He Was Wearing On The Bus



One British man was spotted with quite the extraordinary face covering. While most people use a surgical mask, bandana, or some other type of fabric covering to help slow the spread of COVID-19, one man decided to use a living snake as his mask. The “snake charmer” was spotted (and photographed) aboard public transportation on the Swinton to Manchester service at Salford precinct when the bystander captured his bizarre snake-face covering on camera.

Other passengers were appalled that this man did not take the threat of the deadly coronavirus seriously. It has been proven that when people wear face masks and face coverings in public, the virus loses. This was why China and other countries were able to defeat the virus so quickly – residents adapted to wearing masks. Meanwhile, in the United States and the United Kingdom, people continue to refuse masks and even gather in large groups to protest the mask mandates.

However, this man’s mask did not want to stay put. It unraveled itself from around the man’s face and then started stretching itself out onto the handrailing on the public transit vehicle.

Everyone aboard admitted that the scene was “definitely entertaining.” However, it put other people at risk of death due to COVID-19 since the man was not properly masked. This bothered many passengers who moved far away from the potentially-contagious man riding public transportation with a snake instead of a real face mask.

One passenger, who did not want their name reported in the news, said that they thought the guy was wearing some sort of “funky mask” until the thing actually moved and began slithering all over the vehicle’s railing. This woman found the stunt “really funny” but worried that dimwits might follow this guy’s lead and wear snakes instead of masks.

Local authorities condemned the man’s publicity stunt. Now they are on the hunt for him and are working with the Daily Mail to extract the man’s name from the public. Images clearly showed that the man was not wearing a real face mask or covering underneath the snake. It is mandatory for people on public transit to wear some sort of covering over their nose and mouth unless they’re extremely young or suffer from some sort of health condition or disability that prevents them from properly covering up.

A spokesman for Transport for Greater Manchester said: “Government guidance clearly states that this needn’t be a surgical mask and that passengers can make their own or wear something suitable, such as a scarf or bandana. While there is a small degree of interpretation that can be applied to this, we do not believe it extends to the use of snakeskin – especially when still attached to the snake.”

A female witness, 46, told the Manchester Evening News, “He had it wrapped around his face like a mask getting on the bus. At first, I thought he had a really funky mask on. Then he let it crawl around the handrails. No one was really bothered on the bus, but a man behind took a video. It was definitely entertaining.”

California cops’ Memorial Day tribute busted by spelling police



Just throw in the “e” for effort.

A well-meaning salute to heroes by the San Jose Police Department was cited for bad spelling on Twitter, where the cops botched an operative word.

“Remembering and Honoring Our Heros,” reads a graphic celebrating Memorial Day.

Missing from the SJPD’s spelling of the word “heros” is the letter e.

Several commenters, all of whom should expect to get a ticket if pulled over for speeding in the Silicon Valley area, noted that a heros is a type of fish found in South America.

Only 10 people who’ve gotten Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine have had severe allergic reactions – and more than 4 million doses have been given out



The odds of having a severe allergic reaction after receiving Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine are looking incredibly slim.

On Friday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its first comprehensive trove of data detailing how many people have had confirmed allergic reactions after getting Moderna’s new shot.

Among more than 4 million doses of the vaccine that were administered nationwide from December 21 to January 10, just 10 people reported confirmed cases of anaphylaxis after vaccination, which is a severe allergic reaction requiring administration of epinephrine. That rate of anaphylaxis cases is 2.5 per million.

An additional 43 vaccine-takers had less severe nonanaphylactic allergic reactions, with symptoms including itching (especially in the mouth and throat), rashes, and “sensations of throat closure.”

There have been no reports of death so far, and patients have generally recovered well after these allergic reactions, though five of the 10 severe cases had to be admitted to intensive care first. ( Pfizer’s new COVID-19 vaccine , too, has been very rarely associated with severe allergic reactions .)

All of the confirmed cases of anaphylaxis after administration of Moderna’s shot so far were in women, which isn’t a huge surprise when you consider that most of the non-elderly people who’ve been vaccinated so far are healthcare workers, an industry which is 76% female in the US.

In addition, according to CDC data, more than 2.4 million woman have gotten Moderna’s shot, compared with 1.4 million men (an additional 125,000-plus people who got Moderna shots didn’t record a sex.)

Most of the anaphylactic reactions happened within just minutes of vaccination. Only one of the ten cases took longer than 30 minutes to present, post-vaccination:

For these reasons, the CDC is recommending that all vaccine sites have doses of epinephrine on hand, and that people who get vaccinated should wait 30 minutes at the vaccine site before heading off, just in case something happens.

“It’s important that anybody who has had anaphylaxis talk to their vaccinator about that, and make sure that if they choose to be vaccinated, they wait the 30 minutes,” Dr. Thomas Clark, who’s been tracking allergic reactions after vaccination at the CDC, told reporters earlier this month .

Nine of the 10 patients who had severe, allergic reactions after Moderna’s shot had a history of allergies, and the most common allergies among them were to drugs (six patients). Just one patient with a severe reaction after vaccination had a food allergy.

“You know, many, many people with histories of allergies were vaccinated uneventfully,” Dr. Clark added.

People who do have an allergic reaction after their first shot of Moderna or Pfizer’s vaccine should not get their second dose, the CDC says.
