  1. Don’t waste your time Emily. The authorities believe everyone is stupid. Even before such easy communication the word always got out. Ask them how the slaves organised without whatsapp and email. The sad thing is this isn’t the first person to die fully vaxxed from covid. I know of at least 4. But hey, that doesn’t fit the narrative. Shots for everyone. Even if it is totally useless and even if it kills you. You get a shot! You get a shot! Everybody gets a shotttttttttttttt!

  2. Still waiting to read about the fully vaccinated man (SSU officer) who died, at the hospital, on the 20th Dec from covid. May his soul rest in peace. Don’t want to scare away the unvaccinated, SLMDA? Don’t worry, we wouldn’t take anyway. We would rather eat raw greenfigs and grass.
