What is the percent increase in DEATHS from Cornyvirus? Positive testing reported as “Cases” doesn’t mean anyone is sick in the hospital or died. A report this week said that 40% of those listed as in the hospital came for other reasons then as a captive patient were tested and found to be positive. No one reports on if the positive tested were symptomatic or not. No one reports if the positive test indicates a previous infection or not. We are being lied to by Kristina Box. No one mentions the story today about Elon Musk who got himself tested 4 times on the same day at the same facility with the same testing machine and from the same technician. Two tests were negative and 2 tests were positive. What gives?
