While mask mandates and vaccine requirements are constantly changing, one thing remains the same: hypocrisy. On Thursday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced he was ending the employer vaccine mandate… only for the elite world of professional athletes and performers.
“Today I signed an emergency executive order expanding the performance exemption to the private employer vaccine mandate” said Adams in a press conference.
Not long ago, New York City residents were not allowed to go to the gym and were refused service by any public place without showing a vaccination card. Not long ago, our country’s most valued frontline workers and military men and women in uniform were fired from their jobs, their livelihoods completely shattered because they remained unvaccinated.
But not to worry, Adams assured the people his decision was not made “loosely or haphazardly.” That must make the nurses, cops and teachers who can’t pay their rent feel much better.
Nope; then comes the biggest slap in the face of all. “We’re making it because this city has to function” said Adams. And that right there is the liberal mindset. Millionaires playing with leather balls is more valuable to society and its continued function than literally anyone else.
Adams continued, saying the definition of healthy should not just mean “only physically healthy” but also “economically healthy.” Yet again, tell that to the thousands of individuals who were forced out of their lifelong careers for the very thing, Mr. Mayor, that you are allowing millionaires, also known as ‘economically healthy’, people to do.
National Review reports:
The exemption for athletes and entertainers comes ahead of the upcoming baseball season, opening the field for unvaccinated Mets and Yankees to play home games too. Roughly two-thirds of Yankees players and at least ten Mets remain unvaccinated and will now be able to participate, Jon Heyman of the MLB Network noted.

Human Infection of H3N8 Bird Flu Reported in China
Will it ever end? On Tuesday this week China’s health authority recorded its first human infection of the H3N8 strain of avian influenza. The variant was identified in a 4-year-old boy from Henan province.
According to a statement from the National Health Commission (NHC) the child raises chickens and crows in his home city of Zhumadian. On April 5 he showed fever and other symptoms, then was admitted to a medical institution five days later for treatment.
The statement indicated while it has been found in horses, dogs, birds and seals around the world, no human cases have ever been reported. Fox News reports the commission “warned the public to avoid contact with sick and dead poultry, as well as live poultry, and pay attention to hygiene.”
In March, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wrote highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses had been detected in 13 states among commercial and backyard poultry, as well as in wild birds of 14 states.
Fortunately, the agency said H5N1 bird flu poses a low risk to the public.
