      1. Hey reptilius oculus… You realize everybody dies and that covid mortality age rates are the same as all-cause mortality age rates, right?

        You are one illogical and emotionally overcharged individual.

    1. do you really think that your inane ****ing around the margins is convincing anyone of anything other than how self absorbed you are? – you go to great lengths to be constantly on your soap box – why? – what’s your angle, certainly not altruism

  1. 1) We have to take every precaution against Covid because it’s a new disease and it’s possible the survivors live with long term side effects of it.

    2) We absolutely need to take this new vaccine that has barely been tested even if there is a possibility of long term side effects.
