The Bell County Public Health District changed the COVID-19 Threat Level to Level 1 (Severe Uncontrolled Community Transmission) on Wednesday.

This change from Level 2 (Significant) is based on the rapidly increasing incidence rate, positivity rate and surge in hospitalizations, a news release said.

The Bell County Public Health District tracks local COVID-19 data and reports to the Texas Department of State Health Services for the state dashboard.

Bell County reported a rapid rise in active cases since the threat level was adjusted on Jan. 4, and the incidence rate is now as high as it was in January 2021.

“One month ago, the incidence rate was 50 active cases per 100,000 population. When the threat level was increased one week ago the rate was 575, and yesterday it went to 1,044 active cases per 100,000 population,” the release said. “The rapid rise in cases is largely attributable to the omicron variant, which now accounts for over 90% of new cases in Bell County.

“Because of the increased spread and contagiousness of the Omicron variant, we strongly encourage full vaccination and a booster dose if eligible. The booster dose significantly enhances the immune response and helps protect against more severe disease and hospitalization. COVID-19 vaccines have been found to be very safe and effective and are being continuously monitored by the FDA with the most comprehensive and intense safety monitoring program in U.S. history.”

The health district warned while the omicron variant appears to cause less severe disease than previous variants, “we are still seeing many people developing severe disease and requiring hospitalization, especially in persons who are not vaccinated.”

“The strain on the health care system is very concerning, as it affects not only people needing care for COVID-19 but also those who need care for strokes, heart attacks, and trauma or those needing cancer treatment or surgery”, said Dr. Janice Smith, Local Health Authority. “Our health care professionals continue to provide the highest quality care possible, but they need your help. Please do your part to help prevent further spread of this virus.

“In addition to vaccination, we also encourage added layers of protection by wearing a mask especially when indoors, avoiding crowds, maintaining social distancing, and good hand washing.”

With a threat Level of 1, it is strongly recommended that those not vaccinated or at high risk of severe disease also minimize indoor activities where there are large crowds or social distancing is not possible, according to county Health District Interim Director Nikki Morrow. Use of high quality, well-fitting masks such as 3-ply surgical masks, KN95 or N95 masks provide the best protection, and are strongly recommended even for those who have been vaccinated, but especially for those who have not completed the vaccine series or had a booster, or who have contact with people who are at high risk of severe disease.

Smith recommends that anyone who has been exposed to or tested positive for COVID-19 closely follow the recently revised recommendations for isolation or quarantine. “While allowing persons to return to work after only 5 days of quarantine or isolation if they are not having symptoms, the individual must wear a mask for an additional 5 days. For those unable or unwilling to wear a mask, the isolation and quarantine periods are still 10 days.”

The Health District urged people to consult their health care providers or primary care physicians for questions on COVID-19 vaccines.

he UK government admits that vaccines have damaged the natural immune system of those who have been double-vaccinated. The UK government has admitted that once you have been double-vaccinated, you will never again be able to acquire full natural immunity to Covid variants - or possibly any other virus. So let's watch the "real" pandemic begin now! In its Week 42 "COVID-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report", the UK Department of Health admits on page 23 that "N antibody levels appear to be lower in people who become infected after two doses of vaccination". It goes on to say that this drop in antibodies is essentially permanent. What does this mean? We know that vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission of the virus (indeed, the report elsewhere shows that vaccinated adults are now much more likely to be infected than unvaccinated ones). The British now find that the vaccine interferes with the body's ability to make antibodies after infection not only against the spike protein but also against other parts of the virus. In particular, vaccinated people do not appear to form antibodies against the nucleocapsid protein, the envelope of the virus, which is a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people. In the long term, the vaccinated are far more susceptible to any mutations in the spike protein, even if they have already been infected and cured once or more. The unvaccinated, on the other hand, will gain lasting, if not permanent, immunity to all strains of the alleged virus after being naturally infected with it even once.


The first insurance companies are backing down because a huge wave of claims is coming their way. Anthony Fauci confirms that the PCR test cannot detect live viruses. Anthony Fauci confirms that neither the antigen test nor the PCR test can tell us whether someone is contagious or not!!! This invalidates all the foundations of the so-called pandemic. The PCR test was the only indication of a pandemic. Without PCR-TEST no pandemic For all the press workers, doctors, lawyers, prosecutors etc. THIS is the final key, the ultimate proof that the measures must all be lifted immediately!


US hospitals lowered their standards of care to receive federal COVID money & thousands of patients DIED‼️

As exposed in audio recordings, hospital executives in Arizona admitted meeting lower standards of care several times a week, with coordinated restrictions on visitation rights!

Most COVID-19 patients’ families are deliberately kept in the dark about what is really being done to their loved ones.

The combination that enables this tragic & avoidable loss of hundreds of thousands of lives includes

(1) The CARES Act, which provides hospitals with bonus incentive payments for all things related to COVID-19 (testing, diagnosing, admitting to hospital, use of remdesivir and ventilators, reporting COVID-19 deaths, and vaccinations)

(2) Waivers of customary and long-standing patient rights by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The CARES Act provides incentives for hospitals to use treatments dictated solely by the federal government under the auspices of the (crooked) NIH.

The hospital payments include:

*A “free” required PCR test in the Emergency Room or upon admission for every patient, with government-paid fee to hospital.

*Added bonus payment for each positive COVID-19 diagnosis.

*Another bonus for a COVID-19 admission to the hospital.

*A 20 percent “boost” bonus payment from Medicare on the entire hospital bill for use of remdesivir instead of medicines such as Ivermectin.

*Another and larger bonus payment to the hospital if a COVID-19 patient is mechanically ventilated.

*More money to the hospital if cause of death is listed as COVID-19, even if patient did not die directly of COVID-19.

*A COVID-19 diagnosis also provides extra payments to coroners.



Masks don't stop the spread. Vaccines don't stop the spread. Standing six feet away from people is pointless. Getting tested is pointless. Stay home if you're sick, but otherwise go live your life and behave as if you're healthy and sane.


Killeen Daily Herald or any US newspaper would never do that. They like to push the fear narrative and manipulate the sheep.
