    1. My favourite β€œexpert” is Dr. Fauci who told everyone not to wear a mask during a pandemic back in 2020 🀣

    1. @cindy b I understand fully, I’m just not a coward. You take what ppe measures you want just don’t dictate what others should do, pretty simple.

  1. Please provide data and a link for “…at the same time be doing massive damage”. So many “conclusions” like this or the opposite end of the spectrum. What we need is the raw data that demonstrates your conclusion of “massive damage” for young and healthy individuals. No one I know has suffered this so-called damage FWIW.

    1. Well, if YOU don’t know anyone that’s suffered internal damage, I guess the scientists can just be ignored, right? πŸ™„

    1. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ€£πŸ˜‚
      Wait… every time restrictions are life cases go up.
      When Italy won the Euro cup zero cases reported.

    2. 6th? I thought we were on the 3rd still. Oh my these individuals are wayyyyyyy out there! Come on! We know we’ve bern lied to! It’s been proven! Stop with the nonsense already! Pfft.

  2. Screw the wave…. we’re done. Time to face it and build natural immunity so we can actually end this. If you’re overweight or vulnerable stay home and let’s direct support to you…. starting with a diet intervention and a gym membership.

  3. I guess “waste water surveillance” is easier to digest than calling them “poop-monitoring weirdos”.

  4. Why is this guy screaming the sky is falling now. Junior screwed this up 2+ years ago. Report that.

  5. LOL…..well of course…but hey, how about the news on the princess cruise with 100% vaxed passengers that had an outbreak…or do things like that get hidden from the public?
