Same doctors who couldn’t tell somebody’s left leg from their right leg. Now the old lady have no legs. What a clown show.
I got the rona. Took the ivermectin and some other stuff on confirmation of the test (day 3 of symptoms – headache/fever). By the next day I was normal. Partner got it as well a while later. By second day of taking the protocol all symptoms gone. Partner siblings who took the jook, all were down for at least 2 weeks. Same doctors that pushing that garbage getting awars.
Vaccine kills and its killing many people their BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS YOUR AWARDS ARE EARTHLY BUT IN THE GRAVE YOUR HL BEGINS. CHEERS
While most lucians can’t afford to be sick, these followers of Rockefeller poison medicine and big pharma back world governments celebrating excellence, ha, tell us when the circus goes away. Was this clown show financed by tax payers money, since we have so much we budget over 30mil towards vaccine hesitancy and advocacy under this SLP administration. The masa UWP not off the hook, all you’ll are criminals. Fire burn
Tired of reading ridiculous comments.
