  1. Dit is er aan de hand. Sars-CoV-2 A Weaponized Prion Disorder Disquised as Respiratory Disease. Hier werken groot machten als China, Rusland en Amerika al jaren in het geheim aan en is helaas ontsnapt uit een biolab in Wohan.

  2. Aan deze militaire natte droom die volledig geheim en verboden ondezoek bevat ga je niet gelijk dood . Parkingson, Altzheimer, mad cow zijn door prion veroorzaakte ziektes die pas over 2 jaar zich breed gaan manifesteren. Nu snap je de Angst van overheden.

  3. Many countries have prepared vaccines. Those are read for use or using. Now how could we know which Country Vaccines are effective, appropriate to cure Corona Virus?

  4. Once most people are vaccinated governments around the world will continue their power grab and blame "anti-vax" folk for the lack of status quo, and continuing intrusion into the lives of a countries citizens.

    They'll say that once enough people are vaccinated it'll all be over, but they're lying, and they're going to continue to turn people on eachother instead of rightfully accepting responsibility for being malicious.

  5. The Living & Faithful God loves you very much that He sent His Holy Son Jesus from heaven to earth, to be born of a virgin, to grow up and die on a cross for our sins, and to be put into a tomb 3 days and rise from the dead the third day, and He (Jesus) went back up to heaven. We must receive Sinless Jesus sincerely to be God's child(John 1:12).After we get saved by grace through faith in Christ, if we truly love the Lord Jesus Christ, then we will obey Jesus(John 14:15). Mark 1:15 "And saying, the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: Repent ye, and believe the gospel." Jesus said in John 14:15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments. "There's a real hell. It says in Revelation 21:8 "But for the cowardly, & unbelieving, & abominable, & murderers, and immoral persons & sorcerers & idolaters & all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone…" Please sincerely receive Holy Jesus and put your true faith and trust in Him today and repent. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THAT DANGEROUS GENE-EDITING COVID SHOT

  6. This antibody talk is such bullshit. If you don't have a current infection you will not have antibodies to defeat it. Our bodies are amazing and will not generate something that isn't necessary. It would be a waste of our resources. WHEN YOU HAVE NO ILLNESS YOU HAVE NO ANTIBODIES. USE SOME COMMON SENSE.

  7. Even if claimed herd immunity percentage is reached, the frequent popping of Covid-19 variants would not truly make EUA vaccines effective against all types of Covid-19 viruses. Just note how Israel which is the first country to have reached high numbers of vaccinated people and still is getting very high rate of Covid-19 cases per day relative to its population.

    Perhaps a good analogy of the Covid-19 pandemic is like a fire burning several houses in the middle of a city that is nearby a river; and firetrucks have not yet been invented. As many people were getting water from the river at a distance the fire spread to many other houses, and the fire became hard to contain. Now, the mayor and other people of authority in the city agreed to instead let all the people splash buckets of water to the houses not yet on fire. What happens then is that the houses being burned were being neglected.

    The houses burning may be like people who contracted Covid-19 who need cure while those houses not burning but being splashed with buckets of water may be like people who have not contracted Covid-19 and are being inoculated with vaccines.

  8. We are still learning is not a very good answer to the question of long term affects or efficiency of the vaccine. Pressuring people to take an experimental substance without the adequate amount of knowledge is how nearly every Zombie Apocalypse movie was made. IJS. Do you not think it would be safer to not go to parties and events and do more of your business online?
