    The government failed to shut down the UK and the weeks they allowed the virus to rampage through Britain has cost you the people thousands of lives. Don't be subdued by the propaganda stand up for your rights. Never let this happen again.

    What if there's no virus and it's just unhealthy people who are testing positive for a variety of chronic symptoms. Then are unfortunately dying from mechanical ventilation and their chronic illnesses. I say this because the so called virus seems to be very selective.

    If health care workers are putting covid 19 down as cause instead of the real cause the data will be untrue

    Tobacco kills more than 8 million people each year. More than 7 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 1.2 million are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke. Around 80% of the world's 1.1 billion smokers live in low- and middle-income countries. Why didn't we shut down tobacco companies?

    Yeah, if I get coronavirus, I’m going to kill myself in my backyard. I’m not going to risk spreading it further. I’m 32 and have no health insurance. I’m not going to die in a hospital, suffocating slowly, exposing those poor nurses to my sickness. Got my noose ready. I’m type A blood, so if I get it, I’m toast. More ppl should just kill themselves and end the nightmare.

    YOU KNOW WHAT’S WORSE? THOSE WHO DIED AND COULDN’T EVEN BE ENTERED AS PART OF COVID DEATHS SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T DIE IN A HOSPITAL. THAT IS SIMPLY ATROCIOUS.

    Taking vitamin "C" and getting some sunshine onto your body for vitamin "D" will help keep you better able to fight covid-19 really important to keep yourself hydrated 3pints of water a day … as high as 80% mortality for people induced into a coma .and then put in a ventilator … !

    “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

    Isaiah 43:1 “Don't fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.” God actually commands us not to fear, or worry. The phrase “fear not” is used at least 80 times in the Bible, most likely because He knows the enemy uses fear to decrease our hope and limit our victories.

    What I don't understand is WHO adjusted from 2. Something to 3.4% death rate, but if you look at the current numbers the death rate is 6.9 percent which is only going to go up as those active cases progresses. It take about a month for someone to die from the virus maybe up to 3 months if in critical care. Why is WHO not giving an accurate picture? It would help global citizens realise how serious it is

    What the BBC doesn't mention though is that compared to last year less people have died overall. Just let that sink in.

    Rest in Peace "Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life; and everyone who is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all. Do you believe this?” She said to him: “Yes, Lord, I have believed that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one coming into the world.” " (John 11:25 – 27)

    This all pure propaganda and fearmongering the figures are very inaccurate. and should be showing a sharp decrease, otherwise the figures are extremely wrong, half our hospitals are empty.

    If this virus was deliberate.Then my God those who are responsible I pray will find them.

    Interestingly, the death rate fell consistently from 2000 until around 2011 and has been rising ever since. Another headline could read "highest death rate since last conservative government was in power"

    Those same stats also confirm 3 x more people have died this year from flu than can be connected with covid deaths.
