  1. Real doctors/virologists, thousands of them are against the death needle… Just look at how the TV talks chimpanzee language.

  2. When are they going to give up, all these new variants yet no major mandates or lock down. Clearly must not be worse than the orginal variant

  3. Remember in 2019 when people got colds with all sorts of different symptoms and "most of us" got over them without putting a name on it and causing wide spread panic. Have some common sense people

  4. Y'all know, Moderna, if you take out O, D, and E, you're left with mRNA, which is known to be a spike substance or also known as a live virus 🦠

  5. The mRNA keeps causing too much spike protein which takes up the antibody you need to fight Covid, allowing you to get Covid over & over again. Too much spike, Pharma are criminals

  6. Hopefully they’ll make a “vaccine” that’s actually effective in stopping people from catching Covid, rather than only being effective in causing adverse reactions.

  7. All the people coming into through airplane. They carry all kinds of virus. Why are we so naive. Block them now before it gets worse again all over again.

  8. Bhahaha pathetic criminals pushing the variants of BS that never ends, we don't buy it!! GIVE IT UP IT'S OVER WITH, drug pushers for big pharma. FAILURES AND LOSERS!

  9. Well, noted Virologists said at the start of this that it is dangerous to vaxx in a Pandemic, because it makes the virus mutate and become more virulent in the vaxxed, therefore creating new variants. They were ridiculed and silenced. I guess they were right then!!
