    No proof no facts just political propaganda. Viruses cannot travel unless willfully transmitted into public. This is all a political lie. The liars are cursed everything they do will fail. Everyone living by the lie is cursed. Proof that the CDC is a lie. They refuse to clean city streets and squaller. The CDC says nothing at all about allowing garbage and human fieces to collect and pile on city streets. This is factual proof the CDC is a false political propaganda cult. The CDC has made no attempt to prove a viruse was transmitted. If a viruse was intentionally transmitted it would be traced all the way to the source. The CDC refuses to tell the truth about viruses and the humane immune system, they withhold truth and known facts. The CDC is a lie. The CDC allows toxic poisens and chemicals in farming. Proof the CDC is a lie.

    I for one WILL NOT be getting some fast tracked unproven vaccine. Nor will anyone I've talked to about it.

    Did anyone actually ever believe 6 feet kept the virus away? Of course it circulates, especially in shared air. Same with those useless plastic barriers at registers, the air circulates right around them 🤦🏻‍♀️

    I would sit and read an entire list of names of all the people that died from covid just to verify. Names need to match the same amount of obituaries and burials.

    Could it have to do with how much radiation you have been exposed too? Why does Pirbright institute have the covid 19 patent? Really dislike planed demise demics. Hey, Gates what surprises do you have in that vaccination?

    they keep contradict themselves all the time this is getting a little ridiculous. first they said only 95 masks then whatever protection you use, then they said that it was very dangerous and then they said 6 ft , i dont know believe this people anymore. All i know is i should get into the mask business since it looks like is going to be here for a while.

    The human body naturally creates immunity mankind has done so for thousands of years. The human body is creating immunities night and day. Science cannot do what the human body does. People been getting the flu since childhood their immune system grows stronger. This is all a lie. God will expose the Satanic lies and propaganda. Revelation 21 : 8. God promises destruction of wicked liars murdrrers. Thank God for our wonderful immune system it is the only reason mankind is a lie.

    They’d be taken seriously if they just came out with “We have no damn idea” since they change their guidelines every week.

    Exposure to viruse triggers the immune system to build antibodies naturally immunizing your body. The fact they refuse to tell basic facts proves this is all baseless lies.

    Wear a mask and use hand sanitizer if u want to ,but we're talking about a .01% fatality rate for healthy people under 70 ; there is no comparison to the 2.5% from the spanish flu of 1918. This was supposed to be for 2 weeks and these morons decided to make it 8 months. We destroyed the economy and there no help coming from any of these greedy tyrant mayors, governors and congressional people. Send me that $1200 I've been hearing about for 2 months now. I could really use it right now.
