      I knew 2 co workers that had it… one was 20 years old, said she had a stuffy nose.. the other was early 50’s… she had no idea she had it. It was just random testing. Trudeau wants to keep it going so he can continue to crash our economy and introduce Socialsm.

    • Which underlying conditions do you have?
      Your idea of “nothing happened” iss 8000 dead in Canada and 20,000 hospitalized. Hope nothing does happen your life.

      @Lyn Ibson I have underlying sarcasm. Yeah, the flu, pneumonia and tuberculous kill every year as well. No one is outraged. Simply put, I don’t trust those numbers. I empathize with everyone who’s lost anyone special to them no matter what the cause. I’m just over Covid

    • @Kenny Briggs agreed

    I hate commercials although they were more interesting than this fear mongering news they are posting… Just wanted to read comments to see how many believe what I do LOL

    Rubbish! The fatality rate is around 2.4% according to the CDC website. And likely even lower in reality.

      It’s WAY lower than that. The CDC and the WHO are corrupted.

    • sooo… severe Co-vid, and fatality… two different things. Just sayin’, yer a sloppy thinker, and my advice to you is to work on being less sloppy, or at least don’t write it out like a dolt for everyone to see.

    • @Tamara Fletcher Yep, everything under the sun is classified as a Covid fatality… Nothing like pumping up those numbers to inflate baseless corona phobia.

    Journalism is dead in the msm. Total trash.

    What is the truth is 50 % of the population has immune deficiency. GMO’s, Round Up, increased radiation and aluminium in the Chemtrails have made it worse. A common flu under these conditions would have the same impact. Time for Canadians to boost their immune system through nutrients and vitamin’s and a healthy lifestyle.

  10. Funny how that’s not observable in day-to-day reality. Guess we’re all crazy.

    • How do you observe “27% at risk” in a day to day setting? Your comment doesn’t make any sense.

    • Funny how we’ve been distancing and isolating for 3 months, the curves have flattened, the sick ones are in care and you’re wondering why we don’t see more of it on street.

    Garbage propaganda

  12. Science has confirmed that 5 customers in your store is safe …. but not 6
    And just down the street , that business can have 3 ..

  13. BS!!!!

  14. The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear.
    The oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

    It’s not a surprise at all. We know what conditions can put you at risk, such as immune disorders, respiratory issues, diabetes, and so much more, and there are millions of Canadians that have been dealing with those. It’s not news, it’s not brand new information, go home and retract this story please.

  16. LMAO specialists! They dont know anything
