I think his point is, despite the COVID pandemic, this year’s number of deaths ain’t that different to past years.

The way the media has been reporting things, you’d think the number would be double.

wake me up when the average age of deaths isn't in the mid 80s with 2 or more co-morbidities and the death rate is no longer falling.

We are living in the greatest hysteria in history. Destroying our economies over the flu because we let neurotics and cowardly politicians call the shots.

At this point I couldn’t really give a fig. Cases and fatalities are completely different - and the “cure” is worse than the disease.

NipponGlory - as i predicted. 299 in tokyo, almost half the peak. its going down again. good news and happy.

Oh, good grief! Did you also predict the number of tests would decrease as well?

Here's an article on the long effects of Covid19 for those saying the virus isn't that bad coz the numbers of deaths are not that much and that "the cure is worse than the disease."

How can I get the number of PCR tests denied?

Would like to compare how many tests are addressed and how many are dismissed when any citizen ask to take a test.

Numbers are just bs.Update to my 5/12 post now 40+ nurses confirmed and still not testing everyone daily only when they show symptoms. Should rename the hospital Diamondo Plinsessu! Can’t get the wife to quit!!!
