    This is going to get really ugly, Nivek. Even the cops and first responders are protesting the mandate.

    Government data on Covid deaths and tests here: https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/detai... Smith and O'Brien need to click on "Deaths" and then "Data" followed by scrolling down through until they reach Aug 2020.

    Interesting comparison. My brother came out from WI and honestly expected a lockdown type situation here, pyres of bodies maybe. Nope. I told him that’s what he gets for having the tv on too much.

    My wife and i use a lot of hand sanitizer, around the house and a lot when were in town. First thing we do when we get back to the car is use the green juice. I believe this virus is air borne so we try to avoid confined spaces.
    We go through maybe 12 oz a week of the green juice and i can say last winter is the first winter i made it through with out getting chap hands.

    The Spanish flu of 1918-1920 resulted in about 675,000 reported US deaths, now with this current Wuhan coronavirus pandemic of 2019- we have recorded about 694,836 reported US deaths...For a virus that is said to be less deadly than the Spanish flu of 1918, this current coronavirus has killed more people in the US and in less time unless the current reporting numbers are inaccurate...

    Me, my wife, and our child all had covid earlier this month. Wife lost her sense of smell for two weeks, I felt like I had the flu for a weekend, the kid had no symptoms at all. Around here at least, it seems like covid is alot harder on older folks and those who are already in bad health. Middle aged folks in good shape usually get through it just fine. Kids usually don't show any symptoms at all.

    They didn't have multiple millions of people in confined areas like the US does now otherwise I'm sure the count would have been a lot higher back then. Plus. I am pretty sure our count today is skewed. Which is inexcusable because we have the ability to be pin point accurate at anything else the government deems to be important. For example keeping track of who owes taxes.

    Yeah we have been told that children don't need protection against the virus and yet look what Ptfizer has started.

    They can't even guarantee that what they use on adults is working (it isn't working or we wouldn't need boosters) and yet they are feeding this concoction to babies?

    Everyone who was sick with covid at my place of employment has returned to work, with no new cases from anyone at work currently...I wear a mask around those who returned just in case they are still contagious but most people in the office still wear masks too...

    Our population was much lower then, at least half of what it is now - likely closer to a third. Bigger percentage back then assuming the reporting is accurate. In both instances it likely isn’t.

    Well, he went to the ER last night and they helped break his fever and sent him back home...He told me there was a 4 hour wait for a hospital bed because of covid...He's doing much better today, fever is gone and he's getting his strength back...

    Since this pandemic began I've been tested for covid a total of 7 times, the most recent test was last week to know whether or not I caught it from a friend who's sick with covid...All my tests have come back negative every time thus far...
