    Flu season, anyone ? Fraudulent test anyone ? Where’s all these people housed ? Why some people getting tested positive and being tested elsewhere and being negative ? Was the pcr test even meant to be use for these things ? Why did the FDA issue a class one recall on the testing ? Why doesn’t our leaders tell us this information ?

      I’ve heard its alleged that a false positive was given to an individual who went privately re tested got 2 negatives returned and demanded another test which was negative
      And yet nobody saying anything they jus saying asymptomatic positives.

        False positive/false negative are treated as positive. If they were to retest I’m sure they will get the true results and a true figure. This is just fearmongeting at it best.

      Well not we all but everyone watching the spread of this the wrong way. Blaming this and blaming that.

      But everyone would stop and think for a second. All these cases start to rocket off after our annual graduation ceremonies. And almost everyone here have been to one in the last two weeks. And most of these had family member who travel from far to see these love ones.

      So let's stop blame vaccinated verse unvaccinated. This is due to graduation, prom nights, and all those people who had social events for family friend and staff.

    Is 659 positive recorded cases of vovid-19 as of july 6, 2021 a random belief? No, it is true a fact. Our decision going forward will prove to us, and the rest of the world our level of wisdom in making good and healthy decisions, for us, and others good. May God by His merciful grace favor us in these hsrd and chalenging times.

    They need to insert a new column in that sheet to show how many vaccine-related deaths, how many vaccinated covid infections and how many false positives in the place if they talking about transparency. That form is very one-sided and misleading. A man die from the vaccine on the 2nd July and they label it as covid death for people to stupidly rush to get the same killer non-vaccine by the 3rd. They forget that there is a God above that is all seeing and all knowing.

    Follow all protocols to protect yourself, community and your family. The vaccination is not a cure. Some countries do not recommend this vaccine because of the side effects from it. To some businesses who want only vaccinated staff to work othis is a crime against humanity. There are fully vaccinated people in the hospital sick the COVID-19. People in pain because of blood clots from the vaccine. Vaccinated or not please follow all the protocols put in place. Nobody should be force to take the vaccine let it be a choice

    Get vaccinated while you can.

    We're out here looking like a bunch of Trump supporters. Arguing like the science isn't there.
    We're better than this.

    If more of us ​vaccinate, less of us will die.
    (And less of us will need to be hospitalized. We don't have 4-5 big hospitals for hundreds of hospitalizations.)

    Being in Hospital under Air condition all day is bad, the Virus love the cold...Take all of them on a Boat or Bus to some isolated place in the morning, have them exposed to the sunshine all day, then take them back at evening to a warm facility.....We all know that God Sunshine is the real cure for this virus but this natural cure is suppressed and oppdesssed by billionairres who are making billions on vaccine sale, so creating viruses, pushing the vaccine is the focus their priority.. vaccine aint free, every dose is money in a billionairre pocket...Stop the Hospitilization, get them out the Air condition into the sunlight, With hot GarlicTea at nightt They willl be ok... No more will die, they all will recover.

    Cold temperature is the #1 Contributing factor to Covid deaths...95% of the deaths happen during the cold or Winter season....There lies our indicator, our evidence. So I have to agree that Sunlight does help Covid patients recover.

    God long been and continuing being warning us of our wicked behaviors against His and our neighbors.
    2017 August the halted the festival was a warning. Sept. 6, 2017 hurricane was both punishment and warning. Covid-19 is unleashed on the world is only one of many ways the God is comminucating to us His displeasure of our deliberate ignorance actions, daily.
    Inspite of our guilt He love us. May by His graceful love we be helped from the full wrath of this covid-19

      Please learn to spell words correctly. A virus can be a plague but not a plaque. Plaque is a deposit on your teeth or an ornamental award commemerating a person/event and neither will kill you.

    Y'all crazy. You think you know more than the scientists? Tell me how your phone works?

    Don't worry, I'll wait.

    Someone died last night and you think sunlight is the answer? You don't think anyone in the whole world tried that before we got to the logistics of establishing global supply chains for vaccines?

    Ignorance and arrogance.

    Pray your brains develop.

    The vaccine has some really nasty side effects. They include a very low Covid infection rate and an even lower covid death rate. Run like Forest to the nearest vaccine center. That is all I'm gonna say about that.
