  1. Wait so this whole time they never distinguished between those in hospital because of covid from those in hospital for other reasons that tested positive for covid?

  2. At 5:43 the Doctor says that the typical influenza season is equivalent or worse than what they are experiencing with covid in paediatric patients and that the symptoms are less severe… the reporter immediately says that how doctors are stressing the importance of vaccinating children in that age range as well as pregnant women. That seems counter intuitive to me

  3. Everything to do with Covid is a joke now. The vaccines don’t work and nobody wants to admit that. We’re basically pretending there’s a solution. And there is. But it’s a solution that doesn’t work. But we have to do it because the government can’t admit they don’t know what they’re doing.


  5. The maskless man in Australia said it was a ‘outrage’, as he is passed by a masked family and others, 2 more masked across the street. You can’t fix stupid.

  6. You don’t get Myocarditis from Covid you get it from the so-called ‘vaccine’. Perhaps this should be retracted by Global. Come on Global you need to start telling the truth! Shame on you Donna Freisen!
