...no that's not what "immunized" means. It usually refers to vaccination. I think what Nakena meant is "immunity".

And there is not yet any evidence that post-Covid immunity lasts for a long time.

Yes. The numbers are entirely speculative and will remain so until testing has been implemented wide-scaled.

And yes its unknown for how long it lasts.

Oh wow, did you guys see the lego mockery video from china directed to the US?

They conveniently cut out all those annoying little details, like the disappearing of journalists reporting on the hospitals overload, or the silencing of the first doctors warning about the virus.
But little lego people talking with silly voices is funny.

Using dictionary definitions or wikipedia to support a claim, isn't smart, but only extra stupid.
As it shows you are too ignorant to know those stuff without help.

We're all a bit stupid and ignorant, just be humble about it.

The bastards gas lighted like no tomorrow, rewriting history where they warned us and we didn't listen (they didn't warn us).

Imagine being a whole ass government and making Lego videos to mock your foes while lying once again, this time about your history of lying. And this only comes days after they called Australia gum on their shoes. Is China regressing to child like behavior in this time of crisis? Screw of Xi, go step on a damn lego block you Big Boy ripoff looking ass motherfucker.

China's basically acting like a bully right now, and they're doing that because they know the current Western governments won't do shit to hurt them.

Your freedom ends where someone else's begins. It's why murder isn't legal anywhere other than the ghetto. You should have a right to go wherever you want and do what you want in a normal time and this is definitely not a normal time. If certain restrictions are the only thing standing between safety and death, then we gotta use them. I question the need for certain restrictions but I do not question the need for restrictions of some sort. We can't just go around pretending COVID isn't real.

The US did ignore warnings for at least a month after China admitted there was a problem.

Xi can still step on a lego, though. He's an annoying snotbag and a control freak.

I highly doubt things would be nearly as bad right now had china been open about it from the start. This thing would have been the next SARS. This horrible pandemic happened due to fatal mistakes and coverups. It wasn't predestined.

"This thing is just the flu. I had it and all that happened was I kept coughing all the time, so where are these 65,000 COVID deaths coming from?

What I mean by that is it would be some mysterious disease that most people don't care about. This huge death toll was completely avoidable. 63,000 people died in America cause Trump is a dumbass. Not just because of a virus.
