  1. *cough* bull**** *cough*. 3 of those deaths did not die from covid. They tested positive a month+ ago….and because they died and were positive that long ago, they count as a “covid death”. BS.

    1. I guess you didnt hear about the hit broadway actor who spent months fighting it and lost a leg before he died, if the world was as simple as you pretend- things would be perfect already! 🤠

    2. Months of being alone in a hospital on a ventilator before suffocating… and you think it’s no worse than the flu. That’s if you make it to the hospital. Some people just stay home and die. But you wouldn’t take it seriously even if you were on Death’s doorstep with this virus, would you?

  2. This article is an example of why we do not believe the fatality numbers – apparently we are supposed to assume they all died of the virus when some if not all could have died of their other medical issues but have the virus. That would be died with the virus, not of the virus – at least we didn’t see the word “presumptive” but we have seen it so often I will wonder how many other times they are just guessing the diagnosis.

    1. I love these incoherent theories that are wishing SO HARD that bat flu is just fake, and their only unifying thread of reason seems to be ignoring any of the shared reality we’ve all experienced for the last 6 months

      Manifesting events via your repetitive phrasing might work too, but probably quicker and cheaper and simpler to just requarantine for a couple months?

  3. Please…for the sake of our community, get a grip on this killer! My sister is diabetic. Has been for many years, probably will live to a ripe old age by watching her diet, exercising properly, taking her daily shots. IF she were to contract COVID19, there is a very good chance it would be a death sentence for her due to her illness. She will not die of DIABETES…it will be COVID19 that kills her!! We ALL have ‘underlying medical conditions’ that have not killed us (Think age, heart disease, COPDhigh cholesterol, diabetes etc). IF WE CONTRACT COVID19 AND DIE, WE HAVE BEEN KILLED BY COVID19!!

    1. Lol okay…. So every diabetic that gets covid dies? You need to get a clue. Also, saying “we all have underlying conditions” is not true. I have none.
