  1. As a Kansan, I firmly believe that it originated here, the members of the camp decided to burn a giant waste pile (human waste) and it put a massive cloud of dust into the air causing the virus to go airborne and spread out

  2. Don't be fooled. We don't have a vaccine for the Spanish Flu. Even current flu vaccines are not stopping the other flus.

    We need a coordinated effort to beat Covid19 right now before it becomes the new ever present flu.

  3. At video minute :33, you claim there is no way to know with certainty where the virus began. You lie. The scientific method always proves with certainty where and how these pandemics begin.
