Several people in Oregon were diagnosed with COVID-19 and experienced “reduced” severity after receiving both doses of the vaccine.

The Oregon Health Authority made the revelation in a series of tweets on Friday, calling the four who tested positive despite receiving the vaccine “breakthrough cases.” They also announced that overall cases of the novel coronavirus had decreased in the state. However, they still encouraged residents to remain vigilant as the threat of the virus continues to loom.

“The illness in these individuals ranges from asymptomatic to mild,” local officials confirmed. “Clinical trials of both vaccines presently in use included breakthrough cases. In those cases, even though the participants got COVID, the vaccines reduced the severity of illness,” they added.

The agency said that based on what was learned in clinical trials, they strongly believe that the vaccine will prevent serious complications if you do contract the virus.

This answers the lingering question of whether or not one can still test positive after being vaccinated. At least 38,292,270 people in the United States have received at least one dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, with 14,077,440 citizens receiving both doses.

The authority also noted that more “breakthrough cases” were expected as restrictions continue to be lifted.

Burger King is under fire for tweeting a blatant sexiest comment on International Women’s Day that read: “Women belong in the kitchen.”

Shortly after posting their tweet, they followed up with a series of other tweets clarifying that “If they want to, of course, about 20% of chefs are women” and announcing a scholarship to “assist female Burger King workers in pursuing their culinary dreams.”

On Twitter, many users are taking what intended to be a market ploy personally and are taking issue with the fact that women are, once again, the butt of the joke.

NYC Woman Finds Hole Behind Her Bathroom Mirror Leading to Strange Secret Apartment

It’s almost “Candyman” come to life.

A New York City woman discovered an entire empty apartment located through a hole behind her bathroom mirror — and videos of her solving the mystery and making the unsettling discovery have gone viral on TikTok.

Samantha Hartsoe was trying to find the source of cold air that was blowing into her Roosevelt Island apartment, and soon found that the air was coming from behind the bathroom mirror. She removed the mirror to find a fairly large square hole in the wall.

She continued to film as she peered through, finding a dark room on the other side — and a hallway leading to possibly more. She quickly decided she had to go in and see what was in there.

“Curiosity killed the cat, curiosity is going to kill me,” Hartsoe told NBC New York. “I can’t not know what’s on the other side of my bathroom.”

After gearing up — complete with a facemask and armed with a hammer — she finds a way to get through the hole, despite some concern from her roommates.

“Every corner I would walk normal and then be like [moving her head] to check,” Hartsoe said.”

As she kept on with her investigation, she found more and more of the unfinished apartment on the other side of the hole. She explored both floors, and made sure to lock the front door to the empty apartment. After finding plenty of filled trash bags, and thankfully no spirits, Hartsoe returned back to go back through the hole, back to her apartment.

“My roommates definitely thought I was going to be dead. When I came back they were excited,” she said.

Nearly eight million viewers on TikTok were captivated by Hartsoe’s journey, captured in a series of four videos. She isn’t sure why so many people were drawn to her videos, chalking it up to possible boredom or maybe a bit of wistful hope shared by all apartment dwellers.

“I think everybody in New York has such small apartments, you don’t know what you’re going to find and everyone’s hoping for more space,” Hartsoe said.

She has contacted the maintenance department, which is scheduled to address the hole behind her mirror tomorrow. Hartsoe said she has not yet contacted the landlord.
