    How many Americans would love to move to another country (with their families) where the leaders actually care about the wellbeing of their citizens (until the madman IQ45 is no longer a threat to our safety and wellbeing)? Make sure you do everything possible to vote him out in November!

    Stop eating animals !
    That would end 99% of all diseases..
    and help mother earth at the same time.
    Don't wait for Government to lead it's up to the people.
    I know the Monster people wont want to stop the torture and murder
    of innocent animals or the eating of there body parts…
    but maybe for the future just maybe commonsense may prevail.
    there is always hope.

    Police are arresting citizens in Australia & New Zealand if they aren't wearing a mask. Physical assault by police & criminal damage due to faked figures, propaganda & communist controls driving Covid police crackdowns & martial law. The only solution is to learn the truth, everybody defying the lockdowns & reopening the nation's & calling for the prevention of false arrests/controls & an end to corruption. They are already rolling out surveillance equipment & Melbourne flying Chinese tracking technology for Communist Chinese surveillance measures that would last year's. The "new normal" is code for NWO UN Agenda smart cities, social scoring & genocide. Watch Dollar Vigilante on Bitchute, ACT NOW EVERYBODY! Please share. https://www.bitchute.com/video/w5eu3glTgJUP/

    The video doesn't give the whole story.
    These 4 cases are our first community spread cases in 102 days. The source has yet to be determined.
    The Auckland level 3 lockdown runs until midnight Friday to minimise potential spread while contact tracing and testing determines source and extent of spread.
    Quite likely it will run longer and the spread is potentially worse than so far postulated.
    The rest of the country has gone to Level 2 status as a precautionary measure.
    We do have some other cases identified in our quarantined residents returning from overseas. They are housed in isolated, managed facilities.
    The whole country understands and is on board with this. It is a function of clear, consistent messaging from our leadership and our recognition that we each have to do the right thing for the good of all.

    Wash your hands.
    Social distance.
    Stay home if you can or are sick.
    Wear a mask.
    Be kind to each other.

    These are the bricks in the only wall you need.

    Make America Well Again!

    The people of Hong Kong hope that the waste prime minister is truly treasured! 4 people were diagnosed to postpone the election? So far, 4244 people have been diagnosed in Hong Kong, so can't the election be postponed? New Zealanders’ lives are precious. Is life in Hong Kong like ants? Therefore, all Hong Kong citizens hope that the presidents and prime ministers of the member states of the Five Eyes Alliance will be diagnosed with COVID-19 and die!

    Yea but when China does the lockdown it there’s no interviews with locals on their opinions from American media and it’s a human rights atrocity

    Shutting down the country over four cases … Overkill, anybody?

    You could have a parcel transmission. WHO would say "there is no evidence of parcel transmissions" but Chinese found SARS-CoV-2 infected chicken woings from Brazil. SARS survives in freezer up to 2 years, I think SARS-CoV-2 is no difference. You will need to control parcels.
