'INTENTIONAL': Chinese defector's shock theory over Covid origins



A Chinese defector has suggested the Covid-19 pandemic began after the virus was potentially leaked amongst participants of the military games in Wuhan months before the deadly outbreak was confirmed.

Speaking to Sky News journalist Sharri Markson for her new documentary What Really Happened in Wuhan, defector and democracy campaigner Wei Jingsheng said the Military World Games in October, which saw thousands of athletes from around the world head to the central Chinese city, was likely the first superspreader event.

“I thought that the Chinese government would take this opportunity to spread the virus during the Military Games, as many foreigners would show up there,” he said.

Wei claims he was aware of Chinese authorities experimenting with "strange biological weapons", a tip off from a government source, and tried to warn the US but was unsuccessful.

Multiple athletes from around the world later reported sickness and symptoms consistent with Covid-19.

Last month the the US's Republican Foreign Affairs Committee released a report claiming Beijing was rushing to cover up the virus's spread around the time of the military games.

"When they realised what happened, Chinese Communist Party officials and scientists at the WIV began frantically covering up the leak," Republican Rep. Michael McCaul said.

"But their coverup was too late — the virus was already spreading throughout the megacity of Wuhan."
Former US president Donald Trump also spoke with Markson for the documentary and said a mountain of evidence suggested it was clear the virus had been leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

He said he was unsure however if the virus was intentionally spread or whether it was an accidental leak by scientists.

Initially criticised for his soft approach with China, World Health Organisation chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus surprisingly questioned the findings of a joint mission into the origins of the virus earlier this year calling on more to be done to investigate the lab leak theory and called for a new team of experts in the process.

Thailand Mulls Week Quarantine for Vaccinated Visitors



Thai officials proposed reducing a mandatory quarantine period to just seven days -- down from two weeks -- for all vaccinated international travelers, according to Opas Karnkawinpong, director-general of the Department of Disease Control. Travelers with inoculation caccine certificates would still need to be tested for Covid upon arrival, and before departing quarantine.

Singapore Signals Cases Rising Faster Than It Expected



Virus cases are rising faster in Singapore than the government originally projected but the situation remains under control, Health Minister Ong Ye Kung told a Straits Times sister publication.

The Southeast Asian city-state had 1,457 new virus cases as of noon Sept. 22, the Ministry of Health said -- a higher per-capita rate than New York, and just below that of London, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

“We had planned to have a preparatory period, during which we could gradually open up while handling perhaps 100 to 200 cases a day,” Ong was quoted as saying in a Mandarin-language interview with Lianhe Zaobao, reported by the Straits Times. “But delta did not wait for us to be ready and attacked us first.”

Record Cases for Australia’s Victoria



Australia’s second-most populous state, Victoria, reported a daily record of 766 virus infections on Thursday. Authorities have struggled to bring the state’s current delta surge under control, despite months of lockdown in Melbourne. The outbreak has doubled in size to more than 10,000 cases in about eight days.

Meanwhile, the delta outbreak in Australia’s most populous state -- New South Wales -- appears to be slowing, after a months-long lockdown and mass vaccination effort.

UN Says Delegate Tested Positive



The United Nations said a delegate who was in the main hall of the General Assembly on Tuesday morning tested positive. While the UN didn’t identify which country the delegate represented, heads of state speaking in the hall at that time included Biden and Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro.

Two members of Bolsonaro’s delegation -- including Brazil’s health minister -- have tested positive while in New York.

UN staff who might have been in contact with the infected person “will be notified individually and guided through next steps,” spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement. New York officials had called on the UN to enforce stricter requirements on visiting delegates, but the organization hasn’t required proof of vaccination to enter its buildings.

More NSW (Australia) residents emerge from lockdown as cases trend upwards



More NSW residents will emerge from lockdown at midnight tonight as the state records 1,063 new Covid cases, continuing a three-day upward trend.

Orange and Glen Innes will join Brewarrina, Gilgandra, Lismore and Albury and Narromine in coming out of lockdown this week, NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard announced on Thursday.

"No more major issues in Orange or Glen Innes. So they will come out of the current lockdown arrangements.

"There will be still standard restrictions and precautionary measures but they will be out and back to a more normal life as of midnight tonight."

Stay-at-home orders for Hilltops LGA, including Young, will be extended for a further seven days from Friday due to ongoing transmission in the area, NSW Health reports.

Alaska to Ration Health Care


Alaska is now the second place in the U.S. to activate statewide crisis standards of care, amid a Covid surge that’s straining hospital capacity in areas that have most resisted vaccination.

It follows Idaho, which last week extended health care rationing statewide as authorities there said they didn’t have enough resources to adequately treat patients in its hospitals. Some Montana health providers have done the same. A common thread in all three states is that less than half the populations have been fully vaccinated, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

北市連2周無不明感染源個案 柯文哲:接近降到1級警戒標準



國內新冠肺炎本土疫情趨緩,台北市今天無新增個案。市長柯文哲表示,從北市各行政區確診數據來看,已有5周的時間,每周新增確診少於5例。另外關於不明感染源個案,北市也有2周的時間未出現,最近新增的個案都找得到感染源。柯文哲指出,國內疫情趨緩,目前已接近降到1級警戒的標準,就看如何在最短時間內拉高疫苗覆蓋率。

台北市政府下午舉行疫情記者會。市長柯文哲表示,北市這兩周雖然還有零星確診,但都找得到感染源,「理論上已經接近降到一級的標準」。若從全台灣整體疫情來看,柯文哲說,不明感染源現在全台應該也很少,但降級之後疫情可能反撲,疫苗覆蓋率必須提高。副市長黃珊珊補充,北市上一例不明感染源案例是9月11日。

黃珊珊也指出,為加速會展、藝文產業復甦,北市2146處機關自營場地,場租減半至12月底,包含小巨蛋、台北體育園區田徑場體育館等,可以舉辦大型活動、展演等,但主辦單位須先送防疫計畫給市府審核。

Singapore to ramp up plans to handle 5,000 daily new COVID cases: Ong Ye Kung



Singapore will start ramping up plans to be ready to handle 5,000 daily new COVID-19 cases, said Health Minister Ong Ye Kung on Friday (24 September), amid an ongoing coronavirus surge here that is rising much quicker than projected.

His comments at a virtual media conference by the multi-ministry COVID-19 taskforce come after Singapore registered two consecutive days of record-high new cases: 1,457 on Wednesday and followed by 1,504 on Thursday.

Singapore is expected to hit 3,200 new cases in eight days' time as it enters the "fifth doubling cycle", said the taskforce co-chair.

"Whether it gallops there, or slows down and reaches there slowly – this is something we need to observe. What we do know is that no transmission wave lasts forever," he said, adding that despite strict safe management measures in place, "the Delta variant doesn't follow our script".

The exponential rise in infections over a very short period of time has put Singapore's healthcare system and workers under tremendous pressure and stress, Ong noted.

"(Delta) transmitted through the community and is driving up daily cases much more quickly than we expected before our ramped-up plans are fully implemented, before our support systems are fully in place," he added.

To cope with the surge in cases, authorities will accelerate the implementation of plans, said Ong.

Currently, over 40 per cent of daily COVID-19 cases – and a rising proportion – are on the home recovery programme. As of Thursday, 23 patients are in critical condition in the intensive care unit (ICU) while 163 require oxygen supplementation.

The plans include expanding and assigning more resources to services – telemedicine, a buddy system, and a hotline – made available to those on home recovery. Some 20 to 30 people are on the home recovery buddy team.

The number of COVID-19 hospital beds will also be increased to 1,600, up from a previously planned 1,000. But this will come "at the expense of some degradation of normal services", Ong said.

By end of the week, beds in community care facilities will rise to 4,600, from about 3,500 currently.

Authorities have also launched a new class of facilities called community treatment facilities (CTFs), which are better equipped for closer monitoring and management of COVID-19 patients with chronic illnesses.

About 300 CTF beds have been commissioned this week, with another 700 such beds at Changi Expo and another 200 at Sengkang Hospital to open over the coming weeks.

The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) and private sector hospitals will be roped in to help operate the CTFs. The SAF will also aid in clearing the backlog of requests made by those on home recovery, such as delivering care packs.

With these plans in place, Singapore's healthcare system will be able to cope with 2,500 to 3,000 new COVID-19 daily infections but it will be "quite stretched", Ong said, "at the same time, we need to dig very deep, to prepare ourselves for 5,000 cases".
