  1. Why was he a the hospital for in the first place?
    What was he up there for , cause its very odd that everybody that dead for the past couple days a just positive for covid with no underlying issues and the age is 49, 63, 78, 80, 98 and I think the young lady was twenty something if I’m not mistaken . No body die from old age, asthma, cancer, aids , heart attack and others no more?. Oh next were they vaccinated or not???.

  2. Why so little information? Where’s the transparency? Was he or was he not vaccinated? Local or visitor? They do extensive trace investigations. If we knew where they suspected he was exposed to Covid, we could make informed decisions to either frequent or avoid these places or people.

  3. They really don’t want you to know, it’s purposely done like that. Pay attention . The vaccination deaths are not reported only death with covid and underlying conditions.

    Whosoever will save his life will lose it.

  4. The virus starts off with the elderly, it respects the wicķed leaders with draconian measures, it starts attacking the middle age then some kids but the wicked people in high places is safe in every way even before the vaccine was administered

  5. The fearful and unbelieving, get your house in order . Stop letting fear and the system manipulate you into their beliefs, think for yourselves don’t allow the media to think for you
