  1. Dr. Duncan.
    Please clarify.
    Were these patients were admitted for specific ill-health or accident issues and upon arrival tested positive for C-19
    Did they come to hospital suffering from C-19 ?
    Thank you

        • For COVID in the first place?

          The idea that any of these deaths are due to something other than COVID or vaccine related or some combination of the two is absurd

  2. There’s a very high death rate within 14 days of vaccination

    • That doesn’t mean anything. This world is full of unfortunate coincidences. I’ve even heard of people dying within hours of getting hit by a bullet…

      • You are a friggin idiot. Dying hours after being hit by a bullet is a coincidence? Boy, you are as dumb as they come. Go ahead and remain blind to the truth. Covid will find you, you dumbass.
