  • 512,590 takes the US well over the grim half a million Covid death milestone. After 12 months New Zealand has suffered 26 Covid deaths. New Zealand proved social distancing, hand washing and wearing masks saves lives. Trump's "Do nothing" pandemic strategy is written down in history as America's biggest failure.

  • US Media need to interview New Zealand and Taiwan pandemic experts. CDC briefings would benefit from zoom connected global advisers. Covid variants = US has 10 variants, UK 2, South Africa 1, Brazil 1 and China 1. 2020 the virus possibly originated in China. 2021 there is no debate the virus is from US.

  • Black communities aren't getting shots because we can't get over to the locations, it's because there is a huge lack of trust. Many members of the community don't trust the church either, so I don't see this going anywhere. Getting justice against police brutality is like pulling teeth, so why is there concern now?

  • The same US 🇺🇸 government that has ALWAYS intentionally done EVERYTHING to harm Blacks is all of a sudden concerned about us. 🙄 These Black pastors should NOT being pushing vaccines BUT fighting for Ivermectin prescriptions (prophylactic & treatment) that kills the virus. They should also be fighting for pure reparations for American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS). And NOT the horrible HR40. Quit accepting information from people who hate you & do the research to find out what these so-called vaccines really are. Stop selling out your people.

  • Black people should be mortified that the government is pushing to have them vaccinated over old people and essential workers. I would wonder what these vaccine people are really pushing..especially, since you cannot hold them responsible for death caused by their vaccine. There is no data, at all, on long term side effects; we are being used as guinea pigs.

  • What crazy is the blatant push to get minorities to get this thing no one really wants. They say even if you get the vaccine you can still transmit the virus. Do it doesn’t stop the transmission nor does it stop the virus. The virus thst the majority of people have mild symptoms. But wait, even after you are vaccinated you still have mask and socially distance. 🤪. Behavioural science would say people will just stop wearing masks, etc..... The vaccine is approved for EMERGENCY POWERS. a big difference
