  1. Now we hear that Covid 19 can be transmitted through the air and the powers that be have been keeping it secret. Only God can help us now. 666 vaccine coming. Are we in the end times?

    • There is a lot more they are keeping secret. They are only using us citizens for their own personal gain and creative enrichement

  2. I heard the tests done by Dr.John were conclusive.Those tests that he did at the Hotel at Hodges Bay.That the Health Minister was so pissed off about.They are now saying that CARPHA confirmed those were positive for Covid-19.Good job,Dr.Joey John,well done.Keep up the good work for which you were sworn to do.It is not about politics and political party agendas.

  3. So what when are you people going to learn CORONAVIRUS IS HERE TO STAY!!!!! The soone you people learn to accept this the better.

  4. Dear ‘Help Us’, don’t you think it’s high time to get off your lazy behind and help yourself? It is parasitic to just exist at the mercy of everyone else. There is information aplenty on Covid-19, its nature, origin, manifestations, treatment, and the like. You seem not to be aware of this and are waiting for someone else to fill your head with what you want to hear. Hiding what? Read for your damn self, do the research then you wouldn’t be fool enough to allow any politician to fool you! Ignorant and UPP combined, what a catastrophe?
