The reported numbers of death by Corona are not true. Even the tests have never been scientific proofed in a correct way.
And even with the reported numbers of death, compared to other deadly deseases or just the flu, they are lower and it is a crime, what has happened in the world.....

Schools in China are now prohibiting students from wearing masks while exercising. Why? Because it was killing them.
I knew it since the beginning, that masks are a hoax and dont help anything. There are enough scietific proofs of that.
The governments are lying! A Tyranny has been erected and especially Portugal wiht high fines, controls and so on has turned into dictatorship. The silly people still believe to do good wearing masks. They are the sheep following their destroyers.
