By now most of the world has realized that the damage done by the measures to prevent the spread of Covid 19, together with the controversial "vaccine" have caused more death and destruction then the actual virus. And in the above article it is highlighted that most, if not all, of the serious cases needing hospitalization and even dying are among the "unvaccinated".

No surprises there then. Unless of course you are an anti vaxer in which case it is a bit of an inconvenient statement.
