BREAKING: Trump defunds WHO. Eradication for polio and HIV suffer major tragic setbacks. @SurelyVoter @Hennesseyedit I still respect you Georgette @Hennesseyedit @SurelyVoter Are you saying there isn’t a spike in deaths labeled as pneumonia? Or that the cause isn’t likely COVID? @Hennesseyedit It is supported by the data. I don’t think the state denies it. @Hennesseyedit His work says that there’s a spike. 1200 unexplained viral pneumonia cases in 9 weeks. 1/3 higher.
