All these so called smart people go around telling us that climate change is real! But they can't put together that thousands of people gathering in protest for 35 straight days might spread the virus!!! Ohhh wear your mask and stay home is the order from our leaders... Hmmmm Are being lied to or what?

So I find it impossible to believe that protesters are not increasing the COVID-19 positive tests. Due to they will not tell anyone that’s where they got exposed and younger adults that participated could have been asymptotic and went back to work or around their families and exposed them without knowing. The other reason is the rise follows the dates of protests and as everyone saw they videos only half of the protesters wore masks even when they were standing shoulder to shoulder walking together and protesting for over fifteen minutes.does anyone honestly believe someone is going to just say I might heave been exposed when I participated in a protest or riot cause I seriously doubt it.

The kids can even go play in a mosh pit for all I care.

But ... if any of them bring back Covid ... to ANYone in the house ... they're ALL out of the Will! And THAT's FINAL!
