  1. It is interesting that the number of fully drugged people in iCU is no longer reported. Or the number of re-infections!

    The billionaires that have never found a cure for common flu or cancer tell people to take more drugs and politicians with no medical background support this.

    Why are the victims of common flu not reported? Why are the the victims of cancer not reported?

    The next government created crisis is waiting, Monkeypox or West Nile?

    If the median age of the infected is 38 why are they not being persecuted as are the over 60’s? After all they have paid less into the medical system!
