  1. October 27, 2022:

    52,816 new COVID cases reported in the US (doesn’t include home testing results)

    433 deaths from COVID in the US

    • And how many people died from heart disease and myocarditis? Why not talk about how to improve your health which ultimately will improve your immune system and keep you from getting Covid? Oh right because the fda, NIH, and cdc docs as well as many politicians don’t make money off healthy people and vitamins.

      • Lots of folks die every year from heart disease. In 2020 the number of deaths was 697,000. Wish there was a vaccine we could all take to prevent heart disease. Wouldn’t that be wonderful! But why not prevent the possibility of a death (or the impact of long-term effects) from COVID with a vaccine?

  2. NCGal you realize that Trump had the original version which was MUCH worse than the later versions, right? Or does the Clown News Network not tell you this? People who got multiple vaccines have been getting much sicker with Covid than the non-vaxxed now. But, I strongly suggest you keep getting vaxxed (over and over again) if you feel it protects you somehow.

    • “People who got multiple vaccines have been getting much sicker with Covid than the non-vaxxed now.” Could you please provide the link to the peer reviewed scientific research that backs up this statement? Thanks!

  3. Ncgal, Trump was hospitalized for treatment, he was in isolation. The treatment he recieved was only available in hospitals. Now that the medical establishment knows how to treat it ( .ie what medicines to give) they can take them from home. You are a sheep.

    • Yes, of course Mr. Trump received the only treatments available at the time since the vaccines were unavailable. The medical establishment now is able to administer vaccinations as well as supplemental treatments as Paxlovid.
