    The Anime NYC convention that took place last November and was tied to the second confirmed case of the Omicron COVID-19 variant was tied to a 22 case cluster of the variant, an investigation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds. In early December, the first cases of the Omicron variant were detected in the U.S. weeks after the highly infectious, vaccine resistant, strain was first found by South African health officials. A Minneapolis man, who was first unnamed but later revealed himself to the media as Peter McGinn, 30, tested positive for the virus after attending the 53,000-person convention in lower Manhattan last year. After genetic sequencing, it was discovered that he had been infected with the Omicron variant. The CDC investigated this case, and found a cluster of 16 infection among close contacts to the man. There were also six household contacts of those 16 that were found to have been infected as well. Researchers did not find significant Covid transmission outside related to Anime NYC outside of this cluster.  The CDC found that at...

    SAN DIEGO (KABC) -- Dozens of teenage migrants who are being temporarily sheltered at the San Diego Convention Center have tested positive for COVID-19, officials said.The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says 37 cases have been reported.The department said those who tested positive before their arrival in the U.S. came in on a separate plane and were being isolated on a separate floor.Approximately 500 girls between 13 and 17 years old were brought to the convention center over the weekend.Meanwhile, the Biden administration is not requiring FBI fingerprint background checks of caregivers at its rapidly expanding network of emergency sites to hold thousands of immigrant teenagers, alarming child welfare experts who say the waiver compromises safety.In the rush to get children out of overcrowded and often unsuitable Border Patrol sites, President Joe Biden's team is turning to a measure used by previous administrations: tent camps, convention centers and other huge facilities operated by private contractors and funded by U.S. Health and Human Services. In March alone, the Biden administration announced it will open eight new emergency sites across...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — For the first time, FEMA is providing COVID-19 vaccine shots to people without appointments in addition to those who are scheduled to get shots. Supplies are improving and a growing number of people are getting vaccinated, but there are still issues with distribution and many people are still struggling to get a shot. People were lined up early in the dark outside of the Pennsylvania Convention Center on the first day of the vaccine being available to people without an appointment.

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson has issued an apology after residents voiced their frustrations with the city’s COVID-19 vaccination site at the convention center on Saturday. The site at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center saw long lines throughout the day, with cars lined up for blocks. The drive-up, appointment-only site was meant to be efficient, but some residents saw it as anything but that on the site’s third day of operation. Some residents believed the massive operation should not have been in the heart of downtown. “It should not have been in downtown Dallas, it should have been outside somewhere in a giant stadium. Somewhere where there is a lot of room,” said Cat Carrell, a vaccine registrant. “I was watching a lot of fights, break out behind us over people getting upset,” said Diana Clardy, a vaccine registrant. Johnson on Sunday acknowledged those frustrations, saying the city had 2,700 doses left to give out on Saturday but a “link-sharing problem” led to “unauthorized appointments” that caused delays and confusion. Johnson’s entire statement read: “I was frustrated...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – This week, the City of Dallas received 5,000 COVID-19 vaccines to be allocated out of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center starting Thursday. The drive-up, appointment-only distribution site was meant to be efficient, but throughout the day on Saturday, CBS 11 News saw long lines at the site, with cars lined up for blocks. It’s a massive operation which, some residents said, shouldn’t be in the heart of downtown. “It should not have been in downtown Dallas, it should have been outside somewhere in a giant stadium. Somewhere where there is a lot of room,” said Cat Carrell, a vaccine registrant. One woman said she saw fights breaking out over people cutting in line. “I was watching a lot of fights, break out behind us over people getting upset,” said Diana Clardy, a vaccine registrant. Tristan Hallman, the City’s chief of policy and communications, says they had nearly half of their 5,000 allotment to distribute Saturday alone. He says the long lines were a result of overbooking the site thinking some wouldn’t show, and people coming without...

    Two armed men were busted in Philadelphia Thursday night after allegedly threatening to “straighten things out” at a convention center where ballots were being counted. Police learned that a mother, son and another man were driving to the Philadelphia area from Virginia Beach in a silver Hummer, that was later found parked along North 13th Street near the center, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported, citing a law enforcement source. The trio was alleged to be armed with an AR-15 and suspected of having recently purchased a stockpile of ammo and AR-15 parts, the source said. They were allegedly en route to Philly to “straighten things out” as workers continued tallying mail-in ballots in the city. Bike patrol officers stopped the two men around 10:30 p.m. Thursday and found them with guns — which they did not have permits for to carry in Pennsylvania, prompting their arrest. Police didn’t say what weapons the men, who have not been publicly identified, were allegedly carrying. It’s also unclear if the mother was in fact traveling with them. They allegedly acknowledged that the silver Hummer...

    Washington (CNN)The Democratic National Convention took over the conversation surrounding the presidential race this week, and more Americans had positive things to say about the party's nominee -- former Vice President Joe Biden -- than at any point in the last eight weeks. These findings come from The Breakthrough, a project from CNN, SSRS and researchers from Georgetown University and the University of Michigan asking Americans what they have heard, read or seen about each of the presidential candidates lately. The survey was in the field beginning the second day of the convention and continued through Sunday night.Visit CNN's Election Center for full coverage of the 2020 raceThe number of people who spoke positively about Biden jumped sharply, and outpaced negative responses: there were about 1.6 positive responses for every negative response, the highest ratio so far. At the same time, President Donald Trump's ratio of positive to negative sentiment dipped to its lowest point since early July when the project began tracking -- fewer than one positive response was recorded for each negative response.

    Melania Trump will deliver her biggest, most high-profile speech in four years on Tuesday as she headlines the second night of the Republican National Convention arguing for her husband's reelection. Campaign aides are hoping the first lady will help attract suburban women voters as they privately express concern over diminishing support from that crucial voting bloc. Trump will deliver her speech from the newly renovated Rose Garden, which she unveiled over the weekend, and President Donald Trump will be present for the remarks. It will also serve as a chance for redemption from her convention speech in 2016, where she was accused of plagiarizing then-first lady Michelle Obama's 2008 Democratic National Convention speech.

Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., to treat coronavirus patients has not seen a single one, officials told Fox News. The facility, which contains 437 beds, opened May 11. TRUMP SAYS HE WILL EXTEND NATIONAL GUARD CORONAVIRUS HELP TO STATES THROUGH MID-APRIL "Our goal is to never have to use the convention center," D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said last month, before the field hospital opened. She noted that, in a "worst-case scenario," it would be available to treat as many as 500 patients. Last month, it was announced that a field hospital that nearly 300 soldiers set up at Seattle's CenturyLink Field Event Center would be dismantled before treating any patients and sent to a harder-hit state. That hospital had been meant for patients who did not have COVID-19, allowing regular hospitals to treat COVID-19 cases.
