    1. HOW is it portrayed to be resistant to vaccines. When ALL vaccines are ANNOUNCED as not being able to stop you from getting covid19? Covid19 is already resistant to vaccines. They have not claimed it slows down the infection rate by even 1%. Only MAY slow down if a person dies

    1. Phantom menace variant,you dont know you even have it and never see anyone get it.But be properly scared or you are an anti science bigot!

  1. There should be a contest to find names for each monthly rollout from now to 2025. A trip to Mars or something as the door prize.

  2. At what point will you understand that it will only end when you stop letting them continue, and not in “2 weeks”?

    1. @ALPHA Fitter There is coordination in vibration. Our mind is coordinated in such ways. There is mental transmission, thoughts. We coordinate each other at an energy level. There is a frequency.

    2. @ALPHA Fitter so if my cars window is smashed and all my important stuff is gone, I can’t conclude that a break in happened unless I can find the perpetrator?

    1. We have like 9 fast and the furious movies, and 3 spin offs i believe… you think they cant keep this going pfft.

    1. That’s an interesting claim. Who is it that is conducting this destruction of the economy by means of a virus?

    2. @frasertones That’s what i want to know , Who is doing it , Making variants and spreading them world wide

    3. HOW is it portrayed to be resistant to vaccines. When ALL vaccines are ANNOUNCED as not being able to stop you from getting covid19? Covid19 is already resistant to vaccines. They have not claimed it slows down the infection rate by even 1%. Only MAY slow down if a person dies

  3. im still waiting for doctors to tell the general public just what happens when a virus mutates, they dont tell you important facts like that….im not supprised lol

    1. I doubt an explanation of mutation could be simplified enough for you to understand.
      They aren’t miracle workers.

    2. @Travis Dark “your” Lol. Failed grade 5 grammar I see, so you are certainly not an educated expert. Try “you’re” instead of “your.”

    3. @alan4sure “your” Lol. Isn’t exactly genius level grammar either. Also you were missing commas before you denote quotations in your other sentence as well. Your grammar is nothing short if abysmal.

    1. @Goreu 932 experts say. Top doctor declares. Trust the science. Safe AND effective…. etc.
      I could go on like this all day, but the “news” is already doing that so I’ll spare you guys from the rest
