    Hmmm…let me see. Strong protection at the borders to stop variants??? Lol! That means the unvaccinated are locked up and secured and zero chance of spreading the virus. Hmmm let’s see…. Here lately there have been more cases amongst the vaccinated, so I wonder who is spreading the virus? Let me think……
    Oh I know! The vaccinated who have free reign to spread it! Why am I not surprised!!! Saw this coming light years away!!

      If your country is well vaccinated, that’s not really a problem. At this point, if people choose to be unvaccinated, it’s their choice but unfortunately, we’re living in a world where people who aren’t vaccinated will be more restricted. Until a more vaccine resistant variant comes out (which I’m sure it will)….then the vaccinated will have more freedom to move about. The residents who remain unvaccinated should be masked up regardless and protect themselves more or be unmasked and risk that consequences. I don’t get what’s expected here.

  2. What I cannot understand is how do they have results from Wednesday, July 28th and I took a test that day and I still haven’t received my results. SMH

      I’m assuming you have already done so but, if not, it might be worth checking your Junk mail folder. My family had tests yesterday afternoon and all received the results this morning.

    The vax are the ones who getting the flu and cold because of the jab and yes these people are the carriers and are spreading it around. Yes it’s a plandemic all over again. The unvax are now going to see this plandemic much more clearly as a hoax.

    Burt covid narrative will fall apart and CDC, mad scientist body double Fauci are flip flopping like a fish out of water

    Zero in hospital, I guess because they were all vaccinated right?

    Fear is a dangerous weapon
