They were added to covid but that does not dismiss the fact they died from other causes. We are two years in, we know how this game is played, we know better.

if you check dr. john campbell, he analyzed the strictly covid deaths in england and wales in a recent video. the average age was above the life expectancy.

the govt had to release the info because of a freedom of information act request.

thing is if you have covid and die after 28 days, they conted that as covid and did not adjust for bias like they do other diseases.

And now in the US, Biden said covid cases and deaths will no longer be reported federally.

And here, well it is a mess, they do not even record who is vaccinated or not or who was retested.

when i was tested the form did not ask if i was vaccinated. i wrote in by hand that the employer required, as i had no symptoms.

and in abaco, word on the street is that people get "the thing" and stay off the radar by not getting tested.

The problem here and it is a serious one is A LOT OF VACCINATED PEOPLE ARE DYING! And because they don’t show symptoms of Covid, they are NOT TESTED neither are their autopsies looking for Covid infections. So that is how they can continue to publish that 96% of Covid deaths are amongst unvaccinated people. Which is as big a lie as saying ‘water isn’t wet.’ Apparently the virus gets deeper into vaccinated persons and either causes heart issues or blood clots. Deep vein thrombosis is common in pilots and older patients. Some 2,500 pilots have died after taking the vaccines. Countless older people are dying while sleeping or being passive otherwise and their deaths as listed as natural. ALL in an effort to get unvaccinated people to vaccinate.

Where the heck do you get your information from ? You're telling us that 2500 pilots have died from taking the Covid vaccines? Then, what number of everyday people who fly have died because of the vaccine? It must be astronomical !!
