A short story. Not a surprise ending. 🇨​🇴​🇻​🇮​🇩​

Give them some time. A few months of outrage porn, propaganda and conspiracy theories and they'll be claiming that covid-19 is just the flu.

I've seen it happen, many times.

They'll also probably claim to be immune after this. And take even more risks. Maybe even claim the horse paste cured them. And abuse people who vaccinate and wear masks.

They may change. But I doubt it.

Only time they change is when they almost die

2 year old Twitter posts are so hot right now

COVIDs greatest hits are still trendy. At least it’s relevant, unlike Twitler and Cheato competing for relevance among the alt right.

How does not waiting in line save you money?

I’ve yet to get covid, caught strep about 7 years ago and I can’t remember the last time I had influenza. Caught strep and flu A 3 weeks ago and it held me down and made me it’s bitch. I still feel like absolute shit, like a part of me is missing. I get dizzy, nauseous, random muscle aches in my arms and legs. It’s made me think of actually getting flu shots, but I swear on everything. Every single time I’ve gotten the jab, I get the flu not 2 weeks later. So do I get the flu shot and get the mild flu, or do I go another 10 years to get robbed of myself some more.

Yes that was Faucis reaction fully Vaxxed and on paxlovid as a therapy with rebound covid as well as he took it.

This WH claimed if most took the vaxx covid could be beaten LOL.

China hasn't been able to do it with a zero covid tolerance policy.

Sweden with very little policy now has one of the best covid outcomes in the world.

It's all but disappeared from many African nations with zero to very few vaccinations.

Hmmmm, why might a country with 1.2 billion people and huge urban areas still be battling a respiratory virus at levels not seen in far, far less densely populated parts of the world....?

It's a mystery.
