    I mean seriously… Does anyone really care anymore?

    How many people are there in the hospital for Diabetes?, The Flu?, Pneumonia?, Cancer?, etc….

    Further more how many deaths are there as a result of these many other ailments?

    Covid-19 aka Sars2 is here globally and isn’t going anywhere…

    I mean if someone hasn’t accepted that then too bad… If you haven’t caught it by now you will eventually and no face mask in the world will change that faith…

    Thank goodness it’s much lesser a threat to life now!!!

    Get over it and stop the foolishness. Testing & Counting the positives… blah blah blah!

    Where is the logic behind allowing every non Government Building to NOT REQUIRE masks but every Government Building its mandatory?

    Don’t even start me on the Busses and Taxi’s and oh wait. The masks in the airport… then there’s the no masks on the planes….

    That’s not leadership… That’s leading the lambs to the slaughter…

    Or does ‘trusting the science’ have a narrow scope?

    Wow Wow Wow

    All part of the continuing fearmongering to justify the cash grab of the TAF and the extensions to the Emergency Powers. Meanwhile people are suffering from the economic effects of the restrictions and from other health related issues caused by the PLP, such as the BHB’s actions.
    Taking “we don’t care what you think” to a new cult level of control.

    Always around 320-350

    Amazing

    This time 75 cases were classified as imported. Imported. This means that 75 TA forms were issued to people who imported covid. 22% of all the cases now being reported actually went through the travel process that is designed to keep us “safe”. That is a stunning failure rate.
