    Hey Doctor Sharkawy,

    You’re too stupid to tell me how to live my life.

  7. the doctor that says hospitals are over run yet seems to always have time to go on tv

  8. So boring 😊 science is about saying I don’t know when u don’t know

  9. they don’t talk about the models predicting increased deaths in the long run because of lockdowns.

  10. Sounds like he is speaking whilst hooked up to a cpap machine

    They should release testing ct settings if they are now in compliance with the new W-h–o standard.
    If this has not been implemented the false pos-itive rate will always be in doubt.

    😂 two masks, i dont wear one,
    There are no anti maskers, there are just maskers.

  14. Stop going to get tested it’s the only way to stop this nonsense

  15. He keeps referring to new strains – does he mean variants?
