Health officials fired the heads of the outpatient and medical departments and suspended the general manager of Xi’an Gaoxin Hospital for neglect of an expectant mother, who was turned away from the facility for lack of up-to-date negative Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) test results. The woman subsequently had a miscarriage.
A video of the incident triggered anger on Chinese social media and was the latest in a series of complaints about the lockdown mandate in the city of Xi’an in Shaanxi province, the site of China’s strictest lockdown since the early days of the pandemic.
In July last year, unvaccinated residents in parts of China have been banned from accessing public services, including in-patient departments of hospitals, nursing homes, schools, libraries and other public areas to boost vaccination rates.
A “frenzy of forced vaccinations” also began that month as President Xi Jinping set a target of fully vaccinating 1.1 billion people, or 80 percent of the population, by end of October.
In September last year, senior China researcher Yaqui Wang said setting population percentage targets “without clear protections for people’s rights opens the possibility of authorities abusing the quota to force vaccination jabs and this is exactly what has played out in recent months across the country.”
She cited cases where the authorities didn’t use physical force on unvaccinated netizens but relied on other “coercive tactics,” such as cutting off welfare, retirement or health insurance benefits for anyone who refused vaccination, harassment through constant phone calls or frequent home visits, arbitrary detention and censorship by demanding the deletion of social media posts exposing cases of forced vaccination.
Currently, the Chinese government is persisting with a zero-COVID strategy ahead of the upcoming Lunar New Year and Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics in February.
A legal analysis on public health and private life under COVID-19 vaccination policies published by the Risk Management and Healthcare Policy states that “China prioritizes collective rights, such as health, over individual rights, such as privacy. However, the mandatory vaccination policies lack statutory authorization of local governments and will restrict Chinese citizens’ autonomy, fundamental rights and freedoms and compromise their privacy.”
Vaccine mandates becoming a hot topic around the world
Strict implementation of COVID-19 vaccine mandates has become a hot button issue across the world. (Related: Insurance companies and hospitals use personal data to deny services.)
Northeastern University experts say that refusing to administer treatment is highly unethical and violates a physician’s duty of care, which can carry legal implications.
“As an emergency department doctor, you treat who is in front of you. To do so is a legal obligation and their vaccination status does not change that,” said Robert Baginski, associate clinical professor and director of interdisciplinary affairs for the Department of Medical Services at Northeastern.
Timothy Hoff, professor of management, healthcare systems and health policy at Northeastern said: “In theory, doctors can dismiss patients who do not need urgent care because of vaccination status. But it still raises ethical questions. For example, a physician who wants to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 may view taking on unvaccinated patients as a risk to their safety or the safety of their staff.”
According to Baginski, a doctor would have to explain the reasons for refusing treatment and offer to connect the patient with an alternative provider. Otherwise, it could be a breach of duty of care doctrine.
Patricia Illingworth, a philosophy professor and an ethics expert at Northeastern, said: “If the reason a physician refused to treat a patient who is unvaccinated was simply to incentivize them to get the jab, then that would seem ethically problematic because it can erode trust in the [medical] profession.”
“Vaccination status should not be a factor into who gets treatment and who doesn’t unless it’s to determine a patient’s condition. It’s vital that health authorities continue to urge that,” she added.

Fireworks! Kamala Harris Snaps at Savannah Guthrie When Asked About Biden’s Disastrous Press Conference (VIDEO)
Kamala Harris on Thursday snapped at “Today” host Savannah Guthrie when asked about Joe Biden’s disastrous press conference.
Joe Biden jumbled his words and refused to take responsibility for his failures during Wednesday’s presser.
What really stood out was Dementia Joe’s comments on Russia and Ukraine.
Joe Biden essentially gave a green light to Putin to enter Ukraine.
“My guess is he will move in,” Biden said of Putin invading Ukraine. “He has to do something.”
Biden’s comments were so dangerous that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki released a statement after the presser to ‘clarify’ the president’s statements.
“President Biden has been clear with the Russian President: If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border, that’s a renewed invasion, and it will be met with a swift, severe, and united response from the United States and our Allies,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement. “President Biden also knows from long experience that the Russians have an extensive playbook of aggression short of military action, including cyberattacks and paramilitary tactics. And he affirmed today that those acts of Russian aggression will be met with a decisive, reciprocal, and united response.”
“Today” host Savannah Guthrie asked Kamala Harris about Biden’s presser and his comments on Russia-Ukraine and his statements questioning the legitimacy of the 2022 elections.
Harris snapped after Guthrie pointed out the Democrats’ election bills were debated and didn’t pass through the senate.
“Well, to the point, because those bills were debated, the bills were debated and they didn’t pass,” Guthrie said.
“If I may finish! if I may finish!” Harris said interrupting Guthrie.
Harris also lost her cool when Guthrie pointed out how Joe Biden gave the green light for Putin to invade Ukraine.
“If Russia takes aggressive action, it will be met with severe costs.”

EPIC: Joe Manchin Shames Democrats in Their Attempt to Nuke Filibuster in Order to Pass Freedom to Cheat Bill (VIDEO)
Last night Democrats were unable to change the rules of the US Senate in order to pass their Freedom to Cheat bill. Their proposed legislation would have eliminated voter ID, prevented states from cleaning voter rolls, would have allowed for ballots to be turned in days after the election, and would have allowed for illegal ballot harvesting. It would have destroyed elections in the country and they knew this. That’s why they wanted it and the fake news media promoted it.
The vote failed 52-48 with Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema joining Republicans in the vote.
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) gave an epic speech before the final vote. He helped defeat the communist onslaught for another day.
Via Becker News.
“I cannot support such a perilous course for this nation when elected leaders are sent to Washington to unite our country, not to divide our country,” he argued.
“Let this change happen in this way, and the Senate will be a body without rules,” Manchin warned.
“We’ve changed the rules,” in the past, Manchin said. “But we changed them with the rules. We didn’t break the rules to change the rules. But all of a sudden now we just can’t do it anymore. Just got to blow it up.”
“The rule book means that the rules changes are done on the basis of broad, bipartisan consensus, not imposed on the minority by raw majority power,” he went on. “No matter who is in power.”
Here is the video.
BREAKING: Voter GA Confirms Over 100,000 Ballots in Georgia 2020 Election Missing Valid Chain of Custody Documentation, Additionally Drop Box Videos Have Been Destroyed
Voter GA held a press conference today at 10 am Eastern. During the conference, the VoterGA team released two bombshells that prove the 2020 Election in the state should never have been certified.
The first item involves the chain of custody documentation gathered and maintained during the 2020 Election. All ballots are to be accounted for with proper custody activities performed and documented. Documentation should be available for all ballots that come in the door. (Remember, Biden was given the state by only a 12,000 vote margin.)
We have noted this for months in Georgia and now VoterGA provided proof that this is the case. We first reported a year ago that over 400,000 ballots in Georgia don’t have the proper evidence (chain of custody documentation) to show that the ballots entered the election process legitimately.
In June of 2021, a Fulton County election official confirmed that one in four absentee ballots in the county did not have proper chain of custody documentation.
In September we reported that the results in Georgia were illegitimate because there is no evidence that proper chain of custody documentation was recorded and maintained for tens of thousands of ballots.
Today Voter GA provided evidence that 100,000 ballots lack the proper chain of custody documentation in Georgia which is required by law. Voter GA also reported that the video coverage of the ballot drop boxes inserted into the 2020 Election has either been deleted or is of such poor quality that they would never be able to be used to determine the content of nighttime drop-offs.
If anyone can insert any ballot into any election, then we have no legitimate elections. Georgia’s election never should have been certified.
