New Coronavirus effects: Homelessness, depression, suicide, addiction, domestic abuse, wiped out savings and businesses. Glad the experts are getting everything under control.

For a virus that has no vaccine and no immunity, only resistance and avoidance, there is no such thing as herd immunity.

This was released earlier during the pandemic so I wonder: Does the comment about the masks still stand even when people are just making cloth ones instead of buying masks?

Okay but I clicked on this to hear why Covid-19 is our future.

You can be infected and showing no symptoms for 24 days
Dont wear a facemask. Facemask is for sick people.
Unless, you know, 24 days..
I need to say, first time in a long time I am proud of my country (Slovakia) and its citizens.
Prime minister said a long time ago, that we need to start wearing facemask, but unfortunately there is shortage of them even in stores and we need to save what we have for doctors. Few days later everybody had its own facemask, thanks to women here who learnt to sew and made them for us. Wear a facemask for christ sake, because you can not be sure if you are sick or not.

Coviddity is a set up. The Donald is and always has been a germaphobe. He obviously would overreact if given a chance. He was given a chance! Why did the WHO and American Progressives help China give this to the whole world??

by James Allen jr. 1 day ago

I agree with everything she said with the exception of "Don't wear a mask". Didn't she say that healthy people walk around for 24 days undiagnosed and contagious with Covid-19? Yeah she did. I will continue to wear a mask & gloves in grocery stores.
