  1. these fools continue to lie to the people inventing their bogas wave. You people have been lying to the people for the past two years and still continuing. It’s like the flu or common cold no longer exist. For more than two years now you people have been paid to lie to the people and give them so called medication that you are aware is deadly.

    • No. This is what would happen in a normal influenza season. They only difference now is the news reports. Influenza can kill and has killed in the past 2 years at the same rate it has killed in the past 50. It is a con. Plain and simple.

    • 88, 72, 96, 70, 77. Well within the country’s life expectancy. I dunno what else they expect people to be doing at that age. I’d be more worried about this though (for those people who did you know what):

      “Young people with a particular family history are being urged to get their hearts screened even if they are fit and healthy, as they could be at risk of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

      Also known as Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (Sads), it is an “umbrella term to describe unexpected deaths in young people”, usually under 40, when a post-mortem examination can find no obvious cause of death, according to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).

      Melbourne’s Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute is developing the Australia’s first Sads registry, which it hopes to eventually roll out across the country.”
