    This is an eye opener article by Mike Adams at on how globalists using viruses, vaccine generated strains, to decimate much population, following few excerpts, for more refer link, ... "The end goal, as globalists like Bill Gates openly support, is the elimination of billions of human beings living today. Ideally, globalists seek to reduce the world population to about 500 million people, which is roughly a 94% reduction in the current human population."... Thus, people won’t be dropping dead right away after taking the vaccines. Instead, they will seem fine until the next major bioweapon pandemic hits them, at which point the fatality rate will be extremely high (perhaps as high as 75% averaged across all age groups). The next strain to be released via the vaccines will be COVID-21, and the COVID-21 strain could be rightly considered the second half of a binary weapon system that will achieve extremely high kill rates for human beings across the globe....

    In this how many common cold cases, how many influenza cases ? how many purely Covid 19 cases ? Because common cold and flu are also called as corona viruses and to promote vaccines these numbers everyday ? As such many got vaccinated by this time there should have been decreased in Covid 19. That means vaccines no effect at all on mutant strains. That's what communist chinese and global elite plan seems, then blame those didn't take vaccines, with the virus and high tech nano particle vaccines they are slowly trying to control whole world. More viruses and more vaccines if these communist chinese and global elites use for depopulation and further control to bring new world order or one world government it is not suprising.

    as part of contact tracing, the most prevalent cause should be found out.... is it contact in markets, gyms, pools, places of worship...hotel /restaurant/bar .... buses/trains, contact inside a/c room or contact at home / housing society.... probably it is spreading in crowded residential localities(slums/chawls) where people live too close to each other..... contact at workplace??? restrictions should address the most prevalent cause...for example, in many shops hardly 'crowd' is there at any point, e.g. furniture shops or lawyer office, jewellers. No point in shutting these shops as part of lockdown...
