  1. A virus so extremely “deadly “they must “ CONSTANTLY “ remind you or you will forget…🤦‍♂️

    They called him warner, because he warned a lot.

  3. Pandemic so deadly it needs a marketing team

    • They have spent hundreds of millions of dollars so we all know that covid is so deadly you don’t even know your sick. I am now fully convinced covid is as deadly as a corrupt government.

  4. No pun intended but I’m getting sick of this!

  5. Great clip, “She was in her mid 40s, had a family…” the level detail and facts, and just amount of valuable information is mind numbing. Great work, keep it up.

    • Not sure what level of personal details you need.
      The deceased was known to be cynical and sarcastic which made everyone not miss her?

  6. how we manage this covid is totally immoral.

  7. Costco is always open but somehow it does not spread covid.

      Both Costco and Walmart (at all the outlets I have visited) have very high ceilings, unlike the small retailers. It’s a respiratory disease that is passed by very fine aerosols. The large stores with very high ceilings have better air movement which is somewhat protective. Outdoors has even better ventilation which is why tracing has found no link between crowds outdoors and transmission.
      Masks, on the other hand, are useless. I was in No Frills (which also has high ceilings) today and wanted to open some plastic produce bags. I blew through my mask onto my hands and that put enough moisture on my fingers to stick to the plastic and open the bag. That same moisture is the aerosol that hangs in the air and causes infection if the mask wearer is infected.
      If you hear a doctor talk about wearing a mask, ask for their medical license. They should know better.

    How bout you start sharing the thousands of heart breaking stories from of the lockdowns

    • Yeah. For example a friend of mine hasn’t see his dad since August because he’s in a care home…. And he went to see him through the window last week and security told him to leave. His fathers devastated in there…. The news doesn’t care about that at all though

      @Pajama Time what’s going on in nursing homes is a crime for real. I can relate

    • @Youtube User sorry to hear that. I’m sure there’s many stories like the one I shared…. I haven’t seen my Grama since last March because of this nonsense myself. It’s terrible what they’re doing!

  17. FINALLY DOCTORS are coming out and FINALLY telling ppl what is going on with COVID its about TIME

    My thoughts and prayers goes out to the family.

  19. At what number do we start calling it ,what it is? A BIOWEAPON 👀💁🎯

  20. I’m sensing a heafty lawusit against the factory brewing for damages following their flippant disregard for public health measures. They had a duty to potect their workers, and they failed misserably. If I was the father, I’d sue for $5,000,000 at least. You could probably settle out of court for $4,000,000.
