Weird reporting that means nothing. Hospitalized "with" covid. So? It doesn't say because of Covid. It just means they tested some people in the hospital and they came back positive. Doesn't say if there is any serious illness from it. Same with the newly "reported" deaths. It doesnt say they happened since Tuesday, just that the were added to the total since Tuesday. Ridiculous.


Anyone else get the idea that this push for 100% vaccines is being peddled by big pharma as a way to avoid responsibility for negative effects of the vaccine? If everyone is vaccinated and some young people die, well, it couldn't possible be the vaccine. It's natural causes. Then they never have to take responsibility for their actions.


Any reports on the people in Mass that have gotten the "jab" then died from complications? vidmate


Biden says 350 million have Vaxed he also said you can not get infected if vaxed

Oh dear. Lock everyone down, now and forever. Death by starvation, or boredom is the only way to save humanity. BTW, people outside the United States are just enjoying life.

Cause that won't scare the people, you don't hear the media reporting that there is an over 99% survivability rate, you don't hear the media report that deaths from the common flu has dropped over 96% from years past and you won't hear them report that deaths in the U.S is basically on par with the past 10 years. All CDC numbers.


YES. Go maskless - and NO vaccines ... ever.
