I am really starting to lose respect for this Prof. This government has botched every single project it managed. Now it wants to roll out an untested vaccine in the population. Hell no. Why are they not looking at the ivermectin data and studies?. Someone is going steal money. Agreed too much misinformation in social media!

Your professor title is useless once you start being a puppet for an evil college drop out like bill gates jou moer professor🤷‍♂️ Finally.... a prominent figure with some common sense 😆 Did he not start the fearmongering fire in 🇿🇦 Abramjee GovernmentZA own incompetence is responsible for the trust deficit

Bill Gates knows nothing about medical,nothing.All he knows is how to create a virus on ur Pc and sell u the anti-virus. Professor means nothing,Basson was also one in his days and we know the story. The world dont need the people of Africa it seems. Well people must stand up all over the world against this bullshit. How can less than 100 elite,rich,bankers,play god against 7 billion of us? Surely we can throw them over,that is what they fear the most.

Nothing positive came out of this man's mouth,every time he speaks he speaks as if he thinks he is playing god. Bill gates have been saying we are over populated, and now he want to save us with a vaccine. Something fishy here He is part of the problems we facing so far. At last. Some sense. Tell yourself and your president that... You've been doing it for months... And still getting a full salary... You killed people now even threaten them with criminal records...

😂🤣 He and his corrupt cadres must stop yes kayafm95dot9 take notes He should say that to the media!!! Especially to ENCA! Bloody gamors No one believes this one, dont give him airtime. ProfAbdoolKarim must stop scaring people with the slogan 'Coronavirus kills' They must start focusing on recoveries instead of cases and deaths

Stop cooking numbers then they won't be fearmongering.... How can you say 755 death in a single day? 755 is too much . This man,ENCa, Cyril and zwelini mukhize are our huge problem in this country,they are the one who are pushing for this Devil plan and we are going to Die The fact is they are Not vaccine, period

There's no vaccine here and there won't be they must stop giving people false hope anyway I won't take it even if it becomes available. Herbs are number one Take A Listen Gabotse yall don't know what to report anymore nhe.. gape lere botša mafeela

Fearmongering starts with the media and how things are being reported and thus perceived. Secrecy and a lack of transparency from government leads to a frenzy of hype and hysteria. Citizens are being treated like naughty children I hope he means the MSM...... Even jesus christ wouldn't say such Thank God for bringing bitcoin to man,it has being a great source of blessing to all of man kind who have passion for bitcoin trading. Now the poor are getting rich over night and the rich getting richer. lisaMakT thank you for your proper management .
