  1. th reason you can’t vaxx th covid is cuz it
    is too fragile out of body right? lightly
    stressed it dies, am I correct, is that th
    worst category of virus, fragile ones,
    a few years ago there was a real bad
    flu going around here, it was even
    on th news, maybe you know that,my
    mom was sick for over 2 weeks er
    summat, I think covid is next gen to
    this, 2016 or 17? can you track th
    virus to a blood exam sample
    for th origin, scan blood exam samples
    possibly for an origin, possibly flags
    been all along but unrecognized,

  2. It is a program that should have begun in 2019 it is a PLANdemic.

    Wait until a super bug can’t be stopped thanks to all this hand sanitizer use.
