  • *what about the doctors that ARE SELLOUTS?* for example; *Doctor Mike is a SELLOUT to Big Pharma. I would not want him near my dog!!* The fact is that dr. Judy Mikovits exposed Fauci and Big Pharma criminals. Dr. Mike is trying to "debunk" what is impossible to debunk because of overwhelming evidence that supports Dr. Mikovits. still in doubt? Then *I would suggest you read the books titled 'Virus Mania' by Torsten Engelbrecht and Claus Köhnlein and 'What Really Makes You Ill' by Dawn Lester & David Parker. * these 2 books cover microbes, pathogens, viruses, fungi, vaccines, bacteria, pandemics and germ theory. *You will learn something quite important that they do not teach the future doctors like this *SELLOUT* in medical schools.*

  • I’m barley watching this.. my mom recently tested positive for Covid 19 from her job. She’s a nurse at a hospital. We stayed home, wore our masks when we went out for essentials. Thursday my kids and I went to go get tested. Worst experience If my life. My kids screamed and cried as being tested. I sometimes can’t sleep cuz I’m checking up on kids at night to see if they’re okay. We’re developing systems slowly.. we’re waiting for our results to come.. it feels Luke it’s taking forever.. My mom is getting better and is very active makes me happy tho. I’m just scared what might happen to my kids.

U know based on WHO, SARS-CoV that happen in 2003 is thought to be an animal virus from an as-yet-uncertain animal reservoir, perhaps BAT. Then it happens again as a SARS-CoV-2 in 2019:( how sad that doctor still allowed people to consume BAT

You said yourself that like with the 2012 thing you talked about, the lethality rate was worse. So why all the shutdowns now but now then? Thats what confuses me about this virus

  • I don't understand this weird mentality of making sure we don't offend people with the naming of a virus. Doctor Mike said we should stay away from that kind of thing then said the name Ebola virus which originated near the Ebola river in the Congo. Then said Mers which is an acronym of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. Why arent we changing these names in order to not offend people? What about Lyme disease?

  • Corona loves to kill mostly italians and spaniards. Other nations in the world currently have 100-300x lower % of victims per million people. Wonder why? In india they have largest cities and the most polluted also in Bangladesh. Tokyo Manila Bangkok Mexico City Hong Kong Buenos Aires Sao Paulo are huge cities. Veeery little victims there.. Do you know that one third of all victims come from just 5 places? Madrid lombardy new york seattle and london

  • Reasons to wear a mask: 1) prevent exposure out into the environment, 2) prevent infection in from the environment, 3) prevent touching face/nose/mouth, 4) normalize wearing masks as a responsible citizen. Do your part #WearAMask #StayHomeSaveLives #SocialDistancing #ZeroTrust #AssumeYouAreInfected Although surgical masks (and presumably DIY masks) are more leaky than N95 masks, randomized studies that have tracked infection rates have found that surgical masks are just as effective as N95 masks at preventing the transmission of viruses. Researchers don’t know the exact reason for this. However, some scientists hypothesize that masks help, in part, because they prevent us from touching our face. That helps keeps us from “planting” viruses our mouth, nose, and eyes.

  • Doctor Mike, so if our leaders are making estimates according to the results of tested subjects, what are the possibilities that these numbers witch we are being introduced to are manipulated only by those tests in question? In my country a single test on a healthy person costs about 1/4 of the lowest wage by law, witch means that many people who are wondering if they have or have not caught the virus have no financials to spare for a preventive test, cuz at this point most of workplaces are being closed and payment is surely going to be in question (and that is ASIDE of bills for electricity ect.). Taking in consideration the incubation period and the "common flu" symptoms and adding to that the immune system level on people, especialy the young ones, how can we be sure that preventions taken at this very point are enough? (english ain't my native, so sorry in advance for any errors in spelling)

  • This is a mild flu like cold for over 80% of those that get the disease and is only a severe risk for those who already have health issues... The severe end of the spectrum doesn't really make the virus and the disease deadly since it takes having issues for it to be an issue this would be like classifying a bee sting as serious world health risk because people who are allergic could get severely Ill or die ...SMALL POX... now there's a disease that was fitting for being a crisis.
