  1. Why do empty hospital need supplies

    • Good question, this is the biggest overreaction to happen in over 500 years. 240000 down to 60000 both numbers assuming full social distancing? Yea sorry experts but I’m not believing that bull crap it’s more likely your data was crap and thus your model that relied on that data is also crap

      It’s creepy that Mike is the representative for coronavirus when he’s never cared about people’s health when he was governor.

      Look into his past and who he is connected with. He tried to falsify information to approve an HIV vaccination but it was proven ineffective. He’s in it for the money. Do your own research.

    Good Fridsy service

  11. This uneducated, and draft Dodger says the same nonsense everyday, nothing new. They need to talk about what they been doing with these trials, and treatments, not one person who was infected with virus was a drug addict. So it seems like whatever they have in their system is helping them. Something to think about

  12. The DEATHS IS NOT ONLY THE NUMBER….if people pass away money means nothing. Thank you for all the doctor’s and nurses not only the God.

  13. Coronavirüs soldier of Allah

  14. Michael Pence literally said the word Literally 5 times.

  15. Instead of fighting COVID-19, he’s arguing with governors
