    • Lmao might be true but there are people out there constantly complaining that nothing is done about crime and violence. Let them “fight”…unless you want to go out there an fight it yourself with your pure intentions

      This is for the prime minister and also Dr tufton, why do you all allowed medical persons who have contact with sick patients to wear their uniforms outside in public space then go the ward to sick patients, they are the ones who help spread the virus, they are one of the super carrier, please do some thing about it not hygiene at all
