  1. No way there are so many “deaths from covid” here. With an infection fatality rate of 0.1% and 29,636 “cases” at most we have 30 people killed by covid. It is statistically impossible for our covid death rate to be 10 times higher than everywhere else. If the medical authorities don’t revise those deaths reported and give accurate information it would prove they are either highly incompetent, grossly negligent or deliberately killed people in hospitals. I hope people affected sue them into oblivion.

    “A new study on Covid-19’s infection fatality rate (IFR) by age from a team led by Dr. John Ioannidis, the world’s most-cited physician, estimates that Covid’s IFR in the pre-vaccine era was under 0.1% for those under 70—even lower than previously believed.

    Dr. Ioannidis et. al. found that across 31 national seroprevalence studies in the pre-vaccine era, the median IFR was 0.0003% at 0-19 years, 0.003% at 20-29 years, 0.011% at 30-39 years, 0.035% at 40-49 years, 0.129% at 50-59 years, and 0.501% at 60-69 years. This comes out to 0.035% for those aged 0-59 and 0.095% for those aged 0-69.”

  2. Really…..I guess people no longer die of natural causes. When will lying CMO and MOH admit the truth to the people and stop promoting this medical fraud. It’s apparent now that you people are beimg paid to keep this big medical fraud going, with it’s main agenda to kill off the population. STOP PROMOTING THIS POISON.

  3. While we are on health, we as students of the department of nursing at SALCC need the relevant authorities to kindly assist us. The adverse situation in that department that is being induced by management in my opinion deserves more attention than the current covid situation. Thank you.
