    Cases isn’t a pandemic, no one dropping down in the streets not in the beginning and not now let people live. After the peak of the flu season all these numbers gonna drop. Pcr test can’t tell the difference between those two flu’s because it was never designed for that

      Oh good God!! The corona virus (Covid 19) is NOT the influenza virus (the “flu”).

    If the fear monger ever gets you to the point where your thinking about taking the Pfizer mRNA. Just search these words into google “Pfizer criminal history” and then make your decision. You’ll thank me later

      Not only Pfizer but check Moderna and Johnson and Johnson. They all have billion dollar judgements against them. Moderna filed for bankruptcy just before the worldwide lockdown. Johnson and Johnson have a $2.5 billion dollars judgement against them for having talcum in the baby powder. Cause many health issues for users of their products. You can do further research on these cases by googling them, search the business section of the news and the FDA and CDC websites.

    Lets move on. This virus has mutated into nothing more than a cold. Stop counting cases, stop testing, treat the sick like you would the flu.

    12 in hospital (some will be for other things aswell) from most likely a few thousand that actually have the infection.

    Hmm, are these cases actual true positives and some not false? 300 plus cases in couple days from the last report. If true cases, then this tells me some folks really not follow the protocols and just throwing caution to wind.

The dumb people is just beyond deceived they enjoy it because they are lining up for test and boosters,even thou only death is the difference between the vax and smart unvax

    What is it going to take for some of you people to stop taking COVID as a joke. I guess when the virus strike you down then maybe you will stop thinking it is a joke. Yes it is flu season but stop using the flu as the excuse.

      Not quite right. There is a covid spike in many places around the world. The thing is the virus has now reached a point in its mutation where its more contagious but less deadly - common amongst mutating viruses such as this. Look in media around the world, most places have had huge spikes recently BUT hospital admissions and deaths are falling. As predicted this is becoming something we just live with, like seasonal flu.

    Just a question for the Ministry of health. Are these numbers true or false? What percentage is vax or unvax.Is this a scrare tatic or sales method to get the product moving? In USA on the 4th Jan 2022 ,
    one news site said that 98% of the omocron variant was vaccinated. Is something going wrong that people dont know about.
