    I thank God for an approved, safe vaccine ASAP……….⚕


      Sadly a vaccine won’t be deemed to be effective for many years to come. In the meantime they’ll be many side effects for these so-called pilot test vaccines which in the long run will cause more harm than good.

      @PAUL ROLLINGS ummmmm……i disagree with that…..Pfuzer is in the lead & in it’s last stages of trial…..when the FDA renders a vaccine safe & approves it, which is projected for this fall, it will go in production in mass quantities, probably for the most vulnerable & health care workers first…..

    The Devil Trump can deny the truth, science, COVID-19, and the reality of global warming, but global warming and the Pandemic will continue to demonstrate his ignorance as the nation continue to pay the price for his stupidity!

    I think Americans should just stay home


      You should realise by now that the average American will do what they want to do regardless. Explains why the country is in the state it’s in right now.


    Well, scientists and medical experts have voiced from the onset that face masks do some good to reduce the spread of COVID 19 and help minimise the spread. Why doesn’t America listen? It’s a common theme adopted from other countries with their fight against this invisible virus. The results speak volumes. A vaccine will take years to find and the effectiveness of this vaccine remains unclear. None of us enjoy wearing face masks but do so out of regard and consideration towards others. For those who don’t want to wear face masks then do your shopping online and have this delivered. There are always means around wearing face masks. But we live in a culture whereby we’re sceptical of what we’re being told and people simply do not care about others. And the media question why society is so dysfunctional these days!

    Donald Trump’s approach towards this whole COVID 19 saga has been reckless and irresponsible. Seldom aspiring to be a role model for others and hindering the management of the virus altogether – criticising his intelligence advisors and seldom adhering to social distancing or wearing face masks himself. Is it any wonder why so many Americans have mixed feelings and beliefs surrounding what to do where the corona virus is concerned. Donald Trump has clearly displayed poor leadership in this particular aspect.

    I trust masks more than the vaccine. I mean i would be literally injecting myself with covid…think about how stupid that sounds for a minute. Why would anyone be ok with that. Theres no…oh i might die….no you will. Im wearing a mask and you keep that covid infected needle away from me.

    I have been searching for a hacker that can help me change my school grades without any suspicion or trouble. So a friend in my school introduced me to gregga776 @gmail.com barely a week to graduation and I contacted him immediately. To be honest that was the best decision I have made thus far. he changed 7 of my grades the same day I paid him, and short-listed my name in the graduation list the next day. He is my HERO don’t know what I could have done without him. I am happy to see nice comments about him here. And I will also like to recommend him also. I don’t regret contacting him. he is indeed a blessing. And I am a GRADUATE today because of him

    Wow, the HHS officials are dropping like flies!


    Joe Biden and Donald Trump have things in common for me – I’m losing faith in both of these morons. Instead of criticising one another why don’t they step-up and offer reassurance to people and do something remotely constructive. Stop behaving like children in a kindergarten. Failing this just get in a boxing ring together and fight it out. It’s becoming increasing tiresome watching these two fighting like little children all of the time. Hardly aspiring role models for many American citizens.

    As of March there were already 8 strains of the virus. So even if a person gets a vaccine or there is herd immunity, it still will not work as it would be for maybe one or two stains. A person can be reinfected by the 6 other strains.

    People seem to think vaccines are cures and they are not, they give the person the virus in hopes of creating a herd immunity. Some healthy people will get sick just from the vaccines. Also people don’t know how the virus will end up over time, such as does it come back as a different disease like other viruses etc. vaccines are not cures and neither is herd immunity.
