    zero on vessel wow!! Our people are the biggest threats to us. The selfishness of the Vax and unvaccinated are just selfish!! A lot of those cases are from the bars, clubs and adult club. The BVI have a certain types of mindset people who are just selfish and greedy. Getting drunk, high and making money are their priorities. Top of this i blame C***y J**nes for being very irresponsible and being an encouragement for irresponsible activities. Funny she only have the strength to be down whatever Hon. N. Wheatley and the VIP are doing; but don’t have the strength to tell her ratchet $ss ghetto friends to chill out! This selfish community behavior will only keep us in the woods.

    Always, especially during flue season there were people in the hospital with flue related symptoms. Most of these patients were/are people with serious underlying medical conditions. Even Mr. Georges confirms this.
    It is time to move on with life and pay attention to the real issues. Stop magnifying this Covid and make it look like an elephant instead of the cat it actually is! Stop the fear mongering! Stop this mass psychosis! Treat it as it is, a flue during the flue season! If we don't stop this hysteria we will all pay a high price in the not so distant future,whether vaccinated or not.

        If the hospital is giving false pcr tests that says positive but says negative somewhere else, can’t the number be rigged any time of the year ? Bing Bong !

    Its mass formation psychosis which is a fancy term for hypnosis, people are not able to think clearly when subjected to this form of psychological manipulation and also cannot break themselves free on their own, this psychosis can only be broken when the person takes on a new sense of meaning and purpose that is bigger then the current delusion that has a hold on them and this is done through strong emotional bonds with people they trust and admire

    I don’t understand as an essential worker who been out and about all when there was a lockdown, I RARELY wear a mask unless I’m entering a store been around people with so call covid which looks like the flu in my opinion. And I have not gotten sick it’s been two years may I add and I’m good and still good all through the flu season. So pardon my disbelief, I’ll believe when someone show me documented proof of this “virus” being isolated because there’s numerous court cases where they fail to show proof of a virus.

    No virus isolated -

        To his/her defense many of us don’t believe in this covid none sense either. Two years of brainwashing stories of a boogie man. Where’s the evidence of this virus. Why is no one in the entire world fall over in the streets from the deadly disease. Why aren’t the homeless dying in high numbers ? Im with critical thinker, show me proof I’m not gonna believe something because it’s a the news because all these news station and news sites are pushing fear porn.

    The hospitals worldwide are all severely short staffed as a matter of fact the workforce worldwide are short staffed because the fully vaccinated are sick and testing positive for Covid. The irony is they want those who are without symptoms to go back to work. So fully vaccinated with Covid can work and non vaccinated without Covid can’t work. You can’t make this up. Also the hospitals now want to change the definition of a covid patient lol. They say if a person comes in with a broken arm and they happen to have Covid they’re not a Covid patient. This is sooooool funny. Ayo is the best mehson. Lol lol lol lol lol you can’t make this up listen to the news. I know you all heard it lol oh this is funny. The tables turning so you all are so funny

    "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination"

    The BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 reprograms both adaptive and innate immune responses

    Spike protein (produced by the mRNA injection) impairs DNA damage repair

    Myocarditis-induced Sudden Death after BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 Vaccination in Korea: Case Report Focusing on Histopathological Findings

    Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States
    “Of the top 5 counties that have the highest percentage of population fully vaccinated (99.9–84.3%), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identifies 4 of them as “High” Transmission counties. Chattahoochee (Georgia), McKinley (New Mexico), and Arecibo (Puerto Rico) counties have above 90% of their population fully vaccinated with all three being classified as “High” transmission. Conversely, of the 57 counties that have been classified as “low” transmission counties by the CDC, 26.3% (15) have percentage of population fully vaccinated below 20%.”
