  1. The previous 5 covid 19 deaths were from May 21st to June 6th. The last 4 were from June 9 to June 10th. That means within 21 days there has been 9 deaths. How many has died in the last 14 days, unannounced? Putting them in their grave first.

  2. Are these guys really putting people first? Do they even care? The last announcement of 5 deaths was within only 15 days. Now it’s 4 deaths in 2 days. Isn’t there something wrong? Is the government using the increase in death to get people vaccinated? Were any of these deaths vaccinated? Why aren’t they saying. Doesn’t the sudden high increase in death and the low testing says something? Shouldn’t it be something the Min of health should look into?

    DO THEY REALLY CARE?

  3. It’s so sad whenever you reach vH you are dead..the nurses don’t care of the sick they afraid to get Covid-19 it’s saddens my heart..

  4. Clipped from the Internet…
    Moderna and Pfizer Vaccines more dangerous than Covid

    The numbers are coming in.

    Stanford, UCLA, Louisiana study says that serious adverse effects from Moderna and Pfizer Vaccines
    exceed the risk reduction of serious adverse effects from Covid.

    The excess risk of serious adverse events of special interest surpassed the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization relative to the placebo group in both Pfizer and Moderna trials (2.3 and 6.4 per 10,000 participants, respectively).
