  1. This whole COVID thing could probably have been minimized or prevented if those in charge had procured a supply of Medical grade masks (Surgical or N95) for everyone for 28 days.
    Sad

  2. Once again the whole cu-tip up the nose isn’t just faulty and deceptive but the whole health dept and people like John Henry should face capital crimes for pushing this agenda as they’re corrupt politicians only thinking about their pensions in a few short years. No integrity in government and gullible people line up to be tested with false readings.
