That virus was made to kill the world population by so called billionaires.useless rats trying to play God Told the public so many lies they don't even know what the truth is themselves anymore. Save the NHS, badly run, badly managed, just to destroy all other businesses and lives. Translation: We've completely f*cked this up and now it's impossible to get a grip of the situation and we just haven't a clue! Imagine the New Zealand prime minister telling her nation this!
Surely anyone with half a brain is aware of that Happy days !! How is China managing it so well? But other contries don’t have it no more so am lost 😂 this government ain’t got a clue Not exactly a revelation, most people knew this a long time ago. Well done for dramatising it though. What shouldn’t be with us forever are the restriction that go with it.
Let the idiot sandwich brigade come out to play. Just remember we still have many past virus alive in labs contained and controlled. Small pox being one of them. Utter nonsense as usual! If more combinations to get vaccines are being carried out, the 100℅ effective vaccine will be found. It's like throwing a dice to get No.4..
Every life lost through this government not acting swiftly enough will be with you lot ‘forever!’ 🤬 Thanks for the info, i thought the virus would just disappear on it's own...silly me FOREVER BUT CONTROLLED. Why miss that but out? How are Patrick's shares doing? To keep with the trend, today is Friday 22nd January 2021... we are stating the obvious aren't we..
Just tells u need to look after your self dont smoke ext and also keep ur self healthy Life under NHS rule. I dont remember voting for the PHE to run the country like Nazis. Move over Boris and let's put a leader in charge who isn't frightened of PHE and BBC. So like the Flu. Did people really think a virus would just decide to disappear, have peoples education been dumbed down so much they think they can control the outcome of an invisible virus, of course it’s here to stay forever in many different variants like flu
He'd be a fun chap at a party... oh, that's right, we're not allowed a party... 'Admitted' like it was his fault or just stated facts? Bit like most viruses prevalent in this world that we live with. So the brits are keeping it for themselfs We know it like to flue vac only thing is rid of boris He didnt 'admit' it you idiots, he said something that is scientifically obvious. ITS LIKE FLU
People reacting to this news like they don't get the common cold or flu every damn year 😂 felipekieling vai ficar repetindo a mentira para passar medo para todo mundo com essa mentira mesmo? ....and have a great weekend everyone!! Great 🙈 They have been denying this for a month and then suddenly change their minds. The more people get infected, the more will die. This Covid variant infects more people so the numbers will rise, it doesn’t automatically mean it’s more dangerous to an individual.
Non deadly x 2 = non deadly. Fanfunckingtastic When he stops my steel fixing husband from getting packed trains everyday then I might believe him.
