    What garbage… Which is a better liar? A politician or mainstream news reporter?

  2. Variants are going to vary in variable ways variously.

    Variants. Get em while they’re hot. 😆😆😆

  9. This just in. The easer bunny is being cancelled.

  10. How many deaths from variants?

  11. Thumbs up if you’re watching in 2024 during the 14th wave of the 8 variants.

  12. wOw. Keep finding vaRiants; they will keep finding more….it won’t end. Suk it.

    • That’s how many viruses work. They mutate over time. It’s why we don’t have a cure for influenza or the common cold. We’re just thankful SARS-CoV-2 mutates relatively slowly.

    • @Aurelian exactly we dont have a cure for the flu, but the flu dosnt cause the whole world to lock down and wear masks all day and we are still fine. this is all so unnecessary

    • Aurelian How do we even know if any of what we’re being told is true anymore?

    • @RowanDaBoi true talk. 👍🏾

  13. 😂🤣 imagine thinking you can just avoid an advanced virus indefinitely… 🥴 like every country, every person, is going to get this thing. And all variants thereafter. This was supposed to be “flattening the curve” not “avoiding germs forever” if you wanna avoid germs forever may I recommend a movie called “the bubble boy”? It’s a great comedy from the 90’s

    • Hmm seems like Australia. New Zealand would disagree

    • “ADVANCED” virus???

    • @Robin M what’s the problem with “advanced virus?” Some viruses are more advanced then others. There’s tons of viruses that have been effectively treated because we where able to understand their mechanisms of infection. And there’s many others they we don’t understand so treating is difficult. Those are “advanced viruses”.

    • Avoiding it outright was never the goal. The aim was to minimize hospitalizations until vaccinations took the sting out of it. Think of it like a makeshift splint for a broken arm. It’s not meant to fix the bone, it’s meant to ease the pain until you can get a longer-lasting solution.

    They should have emojis for all the different variants so we know which one they’re talking about. Lol

    …does anyone, at all, anywhere, actually believe or find themselves in affirmation of what’s going on?
