BREAKING: New Jersey Sets Single-Day Record for Covid-19 Infections

New Jersey set a record today for the highest number of new Covid-19 infections recorded since the pandemic began in March 2020.

New Jersey recorded 9,711 positive Covid-19 infections today, blowing away the previous single-day record of 6,859 set on January 13. Hospitalizations also climbed, with 2,100 New Jersey residents in hospitals due to the virus, though that number remains about 1,700 lower than last December’s peak.  `

Governor Phil Murphy today urged New Jerseyans to get their free, at-home, saliva-based tests by visiting nj.gov/health to order a free test kit, and visit covid19.nj.gov/freetest to find a free, public testing site near you.

  1. But now we have the vaccines. And the Omicron variant (which should really be called the Xi variant, wonder why they skipped that Greek letter?) is not very lethal (only one fatality from it in the US yet). SO why all the hype. Maybe cause Democrats want to be able to find an excuse for mail in voting in the midterms? So much to think about.

  2. Yep !!
    I’m not surprised. My wife, 2 of my kids and me all tested positive yesterday.
    Although, the tests don’t show, I’m pretty sure it’s the Unicorn variant cuz my symptoms are MUCH milder than when I got Covid the 1st time, back in March 2020.
    I’m not vaxxed, btw.
    Refuah Shlaima to all.

  3. Low risk people should not test for covid and should rather just treat it with Vitamins c, d, quercetin and zinc (which helps for flu also) . Testing causes the numbers to go way up with many of them false positives. This gives the government control to make more mandates and restrictions.

  4. @ Stop testing

    What an absolutely idiotic post! Where do you get the chutzpa to offer your uneducated and wrongful advice to people who may suffer serious consequences, if they are gullible enough to take it?
    Why don’t YOU take all those vitamins, and see how well that works out, while others should listen to the health professionals, whom they trust with delivering their children, whom they awaken in the middle of the night, when feeling ill, who treat their diabetes, heart disease, and everything else, and who are actually trained and knowledgeable.
    Not YOU, and your ignorance!

    • I don’t know if his vitamins will work, but they are unlikely to hurt. Every other part of his post was on the mark (note that he mentioned low risk people). I do trust medical professionals for every thing else, but for covid they have proven themselves (as a group, there are exceptions) again and again to be completely off mark and lacking in basic saichel hayoshor.

      And as an MD, remember you are a consultant who works for your clients. provide them with education and advise when solicited, not rules or muser.

    • to MD:

      I find your response quite surprising. Every doctor that I know tells low risk people to do NOTHING. Sometimes, they’ll recommend vitamin D or maybe C if the patient is lucky. At least I am giving them something to take that stops the viral replication and builds their immunity. Most doctors by now know that if their patients takes these vitamins it can only help, not hurt. They are not dangerous. Have you really not heard of vitamin C?? Of course I take these vitamins and so do thousands of people worldwide when they get covid and it helps speed the recovery. Do you really not know this?? Just because they didnt teach you this in medical school, doesnt mean its not true or doesnt have merit.

      Most doctors I speak to are parroting the CDC and the FDA and are not thinking for themselves. When it comes to saving lives and serious concerns of government overreach and tyranny which has already reached places like Australia it behooves you and everyone Jew, to think for ourselves and save our fellow Jews

  5. And yet Mr MD professional, even as you are so confident that you have the right medicines, the life span of an average human despite all this great modern medicine you dispense is still 78 years, just as Moshe wrote in Tehillim 90:10 that it was 70 to 80 years way back 3333 years ago. I don’t know how much of modern medicine is actually improving health and longevity. All these chemicals formulated by drug companies don’t seem to do much. I’d rely on an apple better than the pills you have in your arsenal. An apple a day keeps the MD away.
