You know this whole “how to stop a pandemic” thing ain’t working when you censor and kill the doctors who tell you that there is a new virus. And also sure ain’t helping when the WHO is afraid of you and ain’t doing anything in the beginning (and even ignoring information because the country it’s coming from is claimed by the country you do not want to anger)

When you do the research you find out there is no covid19 virus, and what i find even more amazing is that nobody seems concerned that this lock down nonsense is destroying the world for no reason, i find that very disturbing and illogical, although when you have people every Thursday clapping at 8 pm in the UK like pathetic idiotic demented seals what do you expect, it's like there clapping for there own enslavement

​@Terry Winter Covid-19 is still being researched and still need to be better understood. The WHO said that the virus is just the common flu when it first started, then more research went into it since things gotten worse. I'm not saying your prime minister is lying, but he could still be missing out facts and just saying that to keep people calm. If you want an example that isn't your prime minister of health, look at what Trump and the US government is doing and saying to the people. "Go inject some cleaning products." The existence or not of Covid-19 is a huge political issue in America and cases are rising since reopening in multiple cases. So what your prime minister is saying could also be a political thing for whatever purposes. Covid19 is worse than the flu and we still don't know its full potential or other strains it has that can affect the body.

@FrostySnow1000 so Chris Whitty is lying is he ?
FrostySnow1000 9 dager siden
​@Terry Winter Covid-19 is more infectious you idiot!. The flue has a R0 of 1.3 while Covid-19 has a R0 of 2 which means that the infection rate is doubled when one person spread to another (meaning it branches out more if you graph it out). Our immune system is still the literal same, there is no vaccine for covid-19 and there are more than one strain of covid-19! Our immune system only protects what we are vaccinated so far dipshit. Please really educate yourself on how infections work and seeing the real differences between Covid-19 and the flu. Have you seen patients at the hospital? They require so much blood transfusions and ventillations. What common flu requires atleast 5 blood transfusions huh? Also you shithead, our immune system isn't gonna be immune to fucking covid-19 overnight. It takes literal years of changes and cells to evolve to it. Unless we find a different strain like how cow pox was used as a vaccine for Small pox, our immune system isn't going any where. And you look like an idiot here saying 'When you do the research you find out there is no covid19 virus" then ran back to your prime minister saying its real now. Explain that you idiot.

@FrostySnow1000 so why is our health minister Chris Whitty in the UK saying this virus is no more deadly than normal flu and no more infectious, but we have a lock down that is putting 10s of millions out of work and in to poverty, there is fear and stress everywhere so this is making peoples immune systems much weaker so more people are likely to get ill or even die, not to mention all the people in care homes dying because there not seeing a doctor or getting treatment, so do not lecture me about how people are suffering you dipshit fucking asshole

@Terry Winter Sure love your opinion of how my relatives died from covid19. Hopefully you catch it and spread it to your loved ones, but wait covid19 doesnt exist so you'll be fine -just keep visiting everyone you know.
