    10:43 has the best 😍💋 💝💖❤️

  2. How many FLU cases did you add ? Inquiring minds want to know ; Where the HELL is the FLU?

  3. So suicide is up, cancer screening down, bankruptcies up, tent cities expanding but 99% recovery rate hmmmm. Oh lets not forget walmart Amazon liwes record profits. By the way 9 months in from 2 weeks to flatten the curve.

    • Meanwhile flu infection rates are staggeringly low. It seems like these measures are great for stopping the flu but have a hard time with this coronavirus. That probably implies that this virus is a lot more contagious than the flu? If so, then easing restrictions such that flu rates are normal would likely add an order of magnitude more infections. Given the generally 3% death rate if we had an order magnitude infections we would probably have 100K deaths. Already, Canada is at the top of the bottom 20% of infections per 100K in the world. Gratefully not in the bottom 12 death rates per 100K like the USA.

      @Spencer CCFT It sounds like you only get your news from the MSM.

    • @Kevin Bacon Did Nothing Wrong “Covid” IS the flu.

  4. My birthday is starting this saturday

  5. China’s doing ok…

  6. I really hope this Dr stays healthy and never gets Covid. Thanks for being our voice. thumbs up

  7. Ya …shopping now is terrible…but allowing flights from China for months was ok

  8. Thank you so much for all your words and caring. Too many just don’t care about others and that is what is driving this pandemic. Living without my loved one is pure hell.

  9. This doctor does not speak for me

  10. Fear porn

  11. Why exactly is it a “dire” situation? I want to see reports of what the ICU units look like right now…Are they maxed out? Probably not. We’re not being told all the details. What about the REAL spike in actual deaths unrelated to Covid. Something is fishy as hell!!

  12. False argument. It could be me. It could be my baby son. But that never gives me a right to restrict your right to work to provide for your family so I feel safer. Period.

    • Stupid argument. The state has the right to control the movement of idiots during a deadly pandemic who think it’s their right to spread disease without wearing protection.

      @Helical Wave no they don’t and there are legal actions taking place as we speak to counteract these crimes against humanity. They will not get away with this. The general public is waking up. Except for you lol!

  13. More fear I see — nevermind that the virus is very, very survivable if you don’t have one or three serious health conditions and aren’t elderly

    It could be me or my family member but its not and I haven’t even met anyone who knows anyone’s cousin who has even had it.

    does this doctor actually work? he’s on the news everyday if covid is such a problem why does he have all the time in the world to spew his daily bs??????????? shouldn’t he be in our “packed hospitals” taking care of the ”packed icu’s”?????????????????

  16. Queens Park this Thursday. Check out Randy Hillier and start STANDING UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS AND FREEDOM before it’s too late. Remember, the ones who protected Anne Frank were breaking the law, the ones who killed her, were following it. Wake tf up! Stand up for your children, your family, your business, your rights. Queens Park, Toronto, this Thursday Nov 26th.

  17. Fear Porn 24/7.

  18. Health care workers be posting TikTok dance videos

  19. Well, masks obviously aren’t working like you all thought they would. TOLD YOU SO. I’d say nearly every person in my town and county is wearing a mask when they are out and about. Our “cases” have risen exponentially in the last few weeks. So, if these masks work, then why is this happening? And why is the flu suddenly gone? Hmmmm….
