  3. UK & S. Africa are doing the genome sequencing of corona viruses and are being punished for it… Thanks to whom?

      I understand their reasoning, but it doesn’t stand up when you consider viruses are inevitably going to mutate and there is a decent chance it has happened here in Canada but has not been noticed.

    • @Aiden Rajkovic If you don’t sequence the viruses you don’t know which muted variants disappeared and which ones continue and become dominant… until the pulmonary infection season is over…

    All that funding for the W-h-o should be resulting in worldwide data sharing.
    Why is this not happening?

    No way they can “sequence” these genomes..

  7. Free canada now, open the borders stand up for your rights now

  8. How fortunate for those pushing lockdowns, that there is a new strain of covid almost at the same time they are rolling out the vaccines.

  9. Have they published the genomic sequence yet if this “new strain”? I’d like to see it for myself thanks

    when thousands of samples of contagion go missing from the level 4 biolabs there’s no mystery as to why uk finds new strains.

  11. They’re finding “new strains” right after coming out with these vaccines, because they need a reason to keep these lock downs going regardless.

    this sounds like a Rocky Movie Sequel ” now we need a vax” for each Sequel!!

  13. I’m not buying this……let’s see the proof.

    If we couldn’t contain the normally contagious COVID. How will lockdowns help the super contagious COVID.

  15. I just read what they write down for me

  16. I can’t wait to take all the vaccines they make for each and every strain!!


  17. Vaccines are apparently “adaptable “…whatever that means…

    Blah blah blah.

  19. These rolling lockdowns will never end.
    This is your new normal.
