    The World Health Organization has estimated that nearly 15 million people were killed either by the coronavirus or by its impact on overwhelmed health systems over the past two years, more than double the official death toll of 6 million. Most of the fatalities were in south-east Asia, Europe and the Americas.

    Moderna reported Wednesday that it sold $5.9 billion worth of its Covid-19 vaccine in the first quarter of 2022, far surpassing analysts’ revenue and profit expectations and briefly sending the company’s stock price soaring.

    It is part of the deforestation that is taking place around the world and animals habitats are not being replenished and animal are getting in contact with humans and they are transmitting diseases that humans are not inmune to them.

    We are wasting too time with politicians instead of spending time with political knowledges and knowing what our really interests should be

    In Brazil they elected a bunch of fanatic evangelicals who are now supporting the deforestation of the Amazon,

    in Asia they are destroying the forest to produce oils, and Africa is the case and many animals that provide a balanced earth are being killed.

    In 1844 Marx and Engels wrote in the Manifesto that this system was going to become a reactionary system and it is already reactionary and backward but we continue rendering worshipping and admirations to leaders and instead of believing in sciences and medical sciences we are standing behind witchcraft, and we are reading comics books.

    Some diseases that were called diseases of poverty are coming back and this pandemic has shown that all those famous medical system promoted by left-wingers were fake, they are also governed by law and logic of capitalism.

    Socialism or Barbarism are the only choices that we have

    Thousands of times have been proven that the leak theory is wrong, it is just another way to blame the problem on China and to impose sanctions on China and to continue promoting hates against the Asian peoples

    It is not the reality that the leftist are presenting about China, despite its industrial development, it is a very poor society with very low wages, and many poor neighborhood, and most workers do not have any social benefits. This pandemic and the lockdown have widen those social problems. The ones who are doing pretty good are the rulers and the ruling class, it is the same society like any other capitalist society

    Nowhere as contagious as Covid-19, nevertheless, monkeypox is a growing threat, threatening to become as prevalent as VD.

    On Thursday morning, news broke that US President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19. Biden’s infection takes place amid a massive global surge of the Omicron BA.5 subvariant, which nearly every world government has sought to cover up through the dismantling of testing, data manipulation and corporate media propaganda.

    The fact that Biden, who is surrounded by a level of security unknown to all but a handful of Americans, has contracted COVID-19 exposes the recklessness of his administration’s “living with COVID” policy. In recent weeks, Biden was made into the poster boy for this propaganda campaign, taking numerous maskless photo ops throughout the world.

    PS Many members of the White House have been infected with Covid including the Vice President. In the Congress several members have been infected with Covid, and Fauci has been infected with Covid too. They should have known better that this virus is contagious even if you are vaccinated with booster shots, and it is very important to wear a mask all the time and follow medical protocols. This disease is not a joke. Dr Fauci who is the head of the Department of Epidemics also got covid, this is like placing Dracula in charge of the blood bank
