Gym That Defied Lockdown Linked to at Least 419 Infections And One Death

  Gym That Defied Lockdown Linked to at Least 419 Infections And One Death City officials are trying to figure out how a single Quebec City gym that refused to obey lockdown orders could have been linked to the infection of at least 419 people including one 40-year-old man who died after contracting COVID. Health authorities told CBC that the Mega Fitness Gym had broken at least three public health orders before it was forced to shut down on March 31, just as the city was placed under another lockdown amid surging infection rates. The outbreak has prompted local health authorities to conduct an epidemiological investigation into how the virus was able to spread so rapidly, and whether the infections were caused by the deadly U.K. variant.

A San Diego gym that stayed open in defiance of a county public health order to shut down is now linked to a coronavirus outbreak , according to a new report. It ’s unclear how many people linked to the gym tested positive, but county health officials say an outbreak is defined as three or more cases from different households linked to one location. The gym was ordered to shut July 23 for violating the health order — but they did not, Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s chief public health officer, told the station.

When Covid -19 coincidentally emerged from Wuhan two months later, scientists were rushing to generate similar alarmist forecasts using a variety of questionable scientific models. Researchers from the Imperial College London, for instance, approximated death tolls of 500,000 in the UK and two While scientific models are admittedly fallible, one would nonetheless be hard-pressed to justify the endless string of contradictions, discrepancies and willful amnesia in the global pandemic narrative. Was it the science of mass-mediated hysteria? There are many troubling questions yet unanswered.

Canadian health authorities have issued three violations to Quebec City's Mega Fitness Gym 24H for the gym's continual defiance of lockdown orders. The gym has since been linked to a massive COVID-19 outbreak, including 580 cases and one death.

The regional health authority gave the gym three citations for violating public health orders, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). The violations noted that gym staff neither asked patrons if they had COVID-19 symptoms before entering nor kept patrons six feet apart. Furthermore, gym employees didn't wear personal protective equipment.

After Quebec City issued lockdown orders amid rising case numbers, the gym remained operational. It continued operating until police arrived to enforce the shutdown order.

The gym's owner, Dan Marino, is an anti-lockdown critic who has published social media posts containing controversial and misleading information about COVID-19, according to the CBC. Some of his posts reportedly questioned whether face masks really prevent infections. Others minimized coronavirus' health and mortality risks.

In October 2020, Marino headed a coalition of gym and yoga studio owners who vowed to defy lockdown orders. He told reporters that he opposed the shutdown because "I have heard from too many people who are in distress [with poor] mental and physical health."

When the figures were broken down by age group they showed every age group recorded a drop, with the lowest infection rate among the 70 to 79-year-olds who have all been offered at least one dose of the Covid vaccine (7.5 per 100,000). The second lowest was among 0 to 4-year-olds (9.6 per 100,000), who Experts told MailOnline the PM's comments were 'slightly misleading' and suggested it was an attempt by Downing Street to keep people in check as lockdown is lifted.

Rogin said Dr. Anthony Fauci is the 'godfather' of gain-of-function research, which has sometimes been linked to the origins of the COVID -19 pandemic. 'That, what I said right there, is too hot for TV, because people don't want to think about the fact that our hero of the pandemic…might also have been connected to this research, which might also have been connected to the outbreak .' Rogin did not accuse Fauci - who spent his Thursday clashing with Congressman Jim Jordan - of doing anything illegal.

Since then, 580 cases of COVID-19 have been linked to Marino's gym. Étienne Desrochers-Jean, a member of the gym, tested positive for the virus and died in the hospital in early April.

Experts aren't entirely sure about the exact transmission method that caused Desrochers-Jean and others to contract the virus through the gym. The indoor space, lack of face masks and heavy breathing due to exercise could have helped, viral researcher Linsey Marr of Virginia Tech told the CBC. Aerosol transmission and microscopic airborne particles may have also aided its transmission as well.

Health officials identified the gym as a major source of contagion for the B117 variant of COVID-19. The variant now accounts for 70 percent of Quebec City's overall COVID-19 cases. Officials have continued an investigation into the outbreak.

In late March, Quebec City Mayor Régis Labeaume criticized Marino by saying, "Way to go champ. Everyone has nice biceps but now people are sick."

Even though the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court warned the FBI in 2018 that its warrant-free queries, known as backdoor searches, were constitutionally alarming, the bureau still conducted queries relevant to criminal investigations about, among other things “domestic terrorism involving racially motivated violent extremists.” The court’s Judge James E.

France has entered its third national lockdown as it battles a surge in cases of Covid -19 that threatens to overwhelm the country's hospitals. Pope Francis delivered his Easter message to a scaled back group of about 200 people, with St Peter's Square empty for the second year. Different regions will remain in either "orange zone" or "red zone" restrictions until the end of the month. The Italian government also announced it was placing 70,000 extra police officers on surveillance nationwide, in order to enforce the lockdown rules.
