  • Why do people in Alaska go and get a Chinese flu test every time they get a cough or a cold?
    Knock it off!
    You are driving the mass hysteria.
    Stop being Sheeple!

    • Now now, those people have a right to get tested if they want to remember my body my choice my test my choice? It just might happen that they get one of them bad covid bugs and that initial therapy where they get the two shots in the love handles would do them some good. Stop criticizing everybody and just live your life.

      • Greg, that’s just it…we do just want to live our lives, but the Branch Covidians ruin it for us. Masks…shots…lock-down more masks, more shots. If that works for them fine, but why do they have to drag us into it. BTW never heard of shots in your “love handles”. Since they are mostly adipose tissue, absorption would be terrible and defeat the purpose.

  • You didn’t mention the 53 deaths reported

  • Excellent article, thank you SD. We can always generate more “cases” by simply performing more tests. Alaska shows only 7.5 percent of people tested are positive, even at high cycle thresholds. We know for a fact that over 90 percent of those are false positives, leaving the number of true positives at less than one percent of people tested.

  • 138,161 diagnosed cases of Covid.
    388,189 people fully vaccinated.

    I wonder if there’s a way to check on overlapping diagnoses and fully vaxxed.

    I’m just trying to see how close we might be to the magical “herd immunity.”

    Just trying to follow the science…despite the fact that the PCR tests are a joke.

    What a ridiculous game we’re playing. There is no end in sight but godless, global Communist rule.

    Welcome to the new normal. It’s a veritable $#*+ show!

  • What’s interesting is the number of states with zero. It’s as if they aren’t playing along with the Federal government anymore. There will be state with 3k + and right next to them zero. Show me a virus that works that selectively and I will show you a manipulated PCR test to up the numbers for scare value.

  • Love to know what they deem a new case.

  • I don’t think testing is safe. There are nano filaments I want less of not more of near my brain on the tufts of the sticks. Some filaments of nano are no doubt left behind. Why is it a benign, good deal to have them accrete in the nasal cavity or just move along to God knows where else within one’s head or elsewhere based upon a whimsical command of a total stranger who has no contracted relationship to jam the stick up one’s nasal cavit? Only uncaring authoritative types who enjoy forcing unwanted, never free, medical procedures on others because some indoctrinated Karen said so.
