Four people in Oregon tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) even after having been vaccinated, state public health officials reported on Friday, Feb. 12.
The news makes Oregon one of the first few states to confirm “breakthrough cases.” These are people who test positive for the coronavirus at least 14 days after receiving the second and final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Patrick Allen, director of the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), said such cases are to be expected because both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are only roughly 95 percent effective. Therefore, some people who received either vaccine may very well still get infected.
Officials said two of the cases are in Yamhill County, while the other two are in Lane County. The four showed mild or no symptoms at all, leading officials to suggest that the vaccine could have still reduced the severity of their infection.
Dean Sidelinger, the OHA’s state health officer, said Oregon could see more breakthrough cases. Nevertheless, getting as many Oregonians as possible vaccinated remains a critical objective, he added.
But even with the state’s aggressive vaccination efforts, public health officials said coronavirus cases are likely to rise as communities open activities. As such, Oregonians are still advised to wear face masks, avoid or limit outdoor gatherings and practice social distancing when inside establishments.
Health experts are monitoring the four cases and have started genome sequencing. Results may come as early as next week.

Oregon now has confirmed cases of U.K. variant
Currently, 10 percent of Oregon’s population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. More than 17,000 Oregonians are being vaccinated each day, on average, but authorities hope to get this up to 25,000 due to the presence of the coronavirus variant B.1.1.7 in the state.
B.1.1.7 is the more contagious variant first seen in the United Kingdom last December. Last month, around 10 states reported confirmed cases of the variant, which had been linked to a total of 144 infections at the time.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced on Feb. 14 that there are 1,173 cases of the U.K. variant in 40 states.
Two other variants, B.188.8.131.52 and P.1, have also been linked to infections in a few states. B.184.108.40.206 was first detected in South Africa last December when coronavirus cases there surged. Meanwhile, the P.1 variant, which is now one of two Brazilian variants, was detected late last month amid a surge of cases in the city of Manaus.
As of Feb. 15, a total of 17 cases of the South African variant have been confirmed in California, Illinois, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia. Only three infections in two states were linked to the Brazilian variant. Sidelinger worries that both variants of the coronavirus could be detected soon in Oregon.
Unfortunately, given the novel nature of the known variants so far, experts know very little about their effects and their transmissibility. (Related: Mutated form of SARS-CoV-2 now predominates global infections.)
One of the prevailing concerns regarding the emergence of these new variants is whether they will undermine vaccination efforts. Scientists now know that the U.K. variant is more transmissible. It remains unclear whether it is deadlier than the original strain, but English health experts are of the idea that it is.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told CBS News on Feb. 14 that the U.K. variant might become the dominant strain in the U.S. by the end of March, according to their latest projections. Currently, only about four percent of coronavirus cases in the country are linked to B.1.1.7.

In light of the new variants spreading in some states, the CDC emphasized the importance of compliance with public health mitigation strategies, such as mask-wearing, social distancing and vaccination. Some states, including Iowa and Montana have eased some of their restrictions, which Walensky said is a mistake.

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of six sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:

- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.

- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
