Right now the queen is flapping her yapper live.

Now we are counting post-mortem tests. This is criminal

If they find Covid at any time then it is a Covid death, regardless of how they died. Nearly all of these deaths are classified as the person having underlying conditions. This means they did not die from Covid, but with Covid. If they can code it as a Covid death then the facility gets more federal money. It completely encourages fraud and is why this is a complete scam.

If science is what is being used to determine the response and restrictions, the numbers don’t add up.

How many deaths from suicide have happened since the crisis began and restrictions put in place by the Governor?

Why is the information not being made available?

The social and economic destruction is the result of human reaction and decisions that are impacting more lives than the virus.

The people of Oregon should be allowed to voice their opinion and make their own choices.

The political rhetoric needs to stop and common sense prevail over the state.

Scary..... /s

Mr Q

Why do they NOT break out “Presumptive” from “Tested Positive” .. or is it because then the “tested positive” numbers will be too low?

Stay home they say and wear your masks! HA!

Oh great, another person who dies of natural causes on the 7th, and tests positive on the 11th. Another great way to pad the death tally.

Dr. Richard Bartlett in Texas has been curing patients who have Covid with a simple steroid anti-inflammatory inhaler Budesonide (is sold under the name brand Pulmicort Respules) when used with a nebulizer. 100% of his patients have recovered.
