    Respiratory & lung conditions caused by mask wearing will soon be epidemic. This tyranny is both myopic & lacking in what was once known as common sense.

    Keep this in mind, the results are from the tests done by 3 days before, or even 5 days before. Imagine now!

    The public discussion about covid has to shift to 'what evidence do you need to see before you concede the public safety guidelines for covid are over the top, unnecessary and causing more harm than good?' Why is that subject not allowed to be discussed? It's already obvious from cases spiking while there is NO corresponding, relative rise in deaths.

    How many caught a cold, how many got the flu and most importantly, how many recovered? This is a normal flu season with a fancy name media hype and a political agenda.

    What's with this "code red". Like oh no some people got the flu during flu season we need to come up with a scary yet cliche name so that we can give ourselves more power 🙄

    Palluster govt is useless, all the colours used mean nothing. They compare April to now and say we, the public are at fault. Yes, some are, but your baby steps during the marathon mean nothing. In April, stores were limited, schools shut. 25 percent capacity means the people standing by covid positive person still get infected. Brutal, balance means cater to business owners who aren’t front line essential, when we can’t even keep hospitals safe. Shut down for two weeks, it’s not u pallister who’s at risk.goof.

    Backlogged cases! Not a surge…… at this point even if the things these lunatics are saying, they lied too much to even trust at this point….. are all people in ICUs even need intensive care or is it protocol for certain symptoms so they dont get worse?…. why did they count backlogged cases the day before Halloween? And why isn't the new mask situation put into place immediately as opposed to days later to start off the week?
