    What I don’t understand why is baker saying the hospitals are overloaded with the the virus.But there is 0 wait time for all boston hospitals.

    Your not buying into the agenda. We have NO risk management in place, the efforts to thwart the virus has to be focused on maybe 6-7 areas, and nursing homes 50%+. Instead we all get the Baker daily lecture. He’s a failure.

    Why isn’t it be discussed that recent autopsies are finding clots vs pneumonia in the lungs vs pneumonia? Is covid19 a coagulative obstructive virus?

  4. E says:

    Media commented Trump is tired of being confined and working on measures to allow him out. If Trump believes we need to start opening the country , why isn’t he going out ? His first stop should be to these states he called to liberate as he apparently deems safe to do so! A lot of bark but no bite!
