    We are told that viruses are easily destroyed by water and soap. How is it that all this can be mixed up and we still get viruses that aren't destroyed?

    Covid kills by suffocation this is why George Floyd was a psyop "I can't breath" they showed him in a picture standing beside a Corona beer sign, coincidence? No, there are no coincidences in this life. Covid makes the lungs fill up it affects pre existing health problems and makes them 10 times worse. If you are a smoker it will intensify it 10 fold and much quicker.

    Scientist have been using feces to create vaccines for decades. The polio vaccine is created using animal stools, and fed to humans. This needs to stop. Scientist are causing sickness and diseases using feces of animals and humans.

    Sept 15, Lancet Report Claiming COVID Could Have Come From U.S. Lab Met With Uproar
    A top medical journal at the heart of several pandemic-related controversies published a major COVID-19 Commission report Wednesday that concluded the deadly pathogen might possibly have leaked from a United States laboratory.
