Ecuador declares prison emergency after 116 killed in riot

  Ecuador declares prison emergency after 116 killed in riot QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — Ecuador's president has declared a state of emergency in the prison system following a battle among gang members in a coastal lockup that killed at least 116 people and injured 80 in what authorities say was the worst prison bloodbath ever in the country. Officials said at least five of the dead were found to have been beheaded. President Guillermo Lasso decreed a state of emergency Wednesday, which will give the government powers that include deploying police and soldiers inside prisons.

A New York man was arrested after his employer reported that he had provided a plagiarized COVID-19 vaccine card, according to the New York State Police.

David R. Kemp, 24, of Eaton, N.Y., was charged with a second-degree possession of a forged instrument, which qualifies for a Class D felony in the state. The unauthorized use of a government agency’s seal is a federal crime.

A news release from the New York State Police detailed the arrest and charge but did not identify the private company based in Marcy, N.Y., that reported Kemp to the Department of Health Vaccination Complaint Investigation Team.

Kemp was arrested Friday and arraigned at the Oneida County Public Safety Building. If convicted, he could face up to seven years in prison, according to the NYS Unified Court System. The minimum for the charge would be probation with no jail time.

This is not the first time COVID-19 documents have been faked. A 24-year-old woman from Illinois forged a vaccine card last month and misspelled Moderna. A Los Angeles couple was arrested last week and accused of falsifying negative test results in Hawaii.

California pushes 1st US vaccine mandate for schoolchildren

  California pushes 1st US vaccine mandate for schoolchildren SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California will enact the nation’s first coronavirus vaccine mandate for schoolchildren, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday, aiming to have all students in seventh through 12th grades vaccinated by next fall once the shots gain final federal approval for everyone 12 and over. The Democratic governor said he expects the U.S. government to give that final sign-off sometime next year, bumping up from the emergency authorization given now for those 12 to 15. He said the state will require students in kindergarten through sixth grades to get the vaccine once final federal approval comes for children 5 to 11.

Because making a counterfeit COVID-19 document is not difficult given the cards are marked by hand, the FBI released a public warning in March that creating or buying a fake vaccine card is illegal. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention later delivered guidance to states to pull the templates from their sites back in April. New York is one of the few states to embrace a vaccination verification app.
