"This system is forecast to move west to west-northwest across the eastern Atlantic over the next several days.

    Y'all is no different from the white slave masters. Keeping people under curfew is a direct choke hold against human basic rights. Lucky for yall that the people don't recognize they are the majority.

        @test. Did you pass any test in school. You failed this scandemic test with a big fat F. Answer this one question, if 99.9% of people is recovering how could covid be deadly. You is a follower.

          @Disturbance VIP.. you know I read your responses and esp the one directed @test..I had shake my head at such ignorance on your part..Common sense really doesn’t grow in everyone’s garden.. you speak like a person that lacks Intellect..do is all a favor and stop blogging nonsense.. if you don’t know the definition of deadly perhaps you should get a dictionary and research same; but let me appease you by giving it to u
          . Definition of deadly
          1. likely to cause or capable of producing death
          deadly poison
          2. a: aiming to kill or destroy : IMPLACABLE
          a deadly enemy
          b: highly effective
          So in plain English: deadly means something that have the ability to kill you not that it has to.. do yourself a favor instead of coming on here and making yourself look stupid - give thought first.
