The news follows Phuket officials marking the third death for the outbreak Wednesday last week (June 2).

Officials have yet to release any details of the third death, but did explain that Phuket’s second death from COVId in the ongoing outbreak was an 86-year-old Thai woman who had a hyperlipidemia and hypertension.

Skip your statement is false. Chris007, either your name or your post is a joke. "Access to secret information" indeed. 555

007 One of WHO's most plausible theories  is the virus came from lazy or ill trained lab workers inadequately protected who were in bat caves collecting specimens and  excrement. They then spread it into the community and the wet market was a super spreader.   Seems far more likely than  far out conspiracy  theories on You Tube. There would be a billion dead if  it were a GoF particle.

  Influenza virus doesn't kill people either, it causes disorders in the lungs which does. Ditto SARS-CoV-2 albeit more system wide.  Good grief..

christy sweet. i have contacted the editor to offer you my email address so i can send you video of the press release. the published peer reviewed science and data that is censored and removed from the net  is astonishing. i have access to restricted data and video that will never be seen on tv or the internet. censorship by omission.

christy sweet. you are 100% incorrect in your analagy. i mean exactly what i say. 94% of the 220,000 US reported corona deaths were not from corona virus. CDC official press release 28-10-2021. it also specifies the cause of death in every case. theres your reference. good luck with your research on the CDC website - be patient and you will find it. you wont find it on the net as it is censored.

It wasn't the car crash that killed him,  it was inertia is the logic of Skip's comorbidity argument.  SARS CoV-2 causes vascular breakdown,  hence people with problems die when they may well have lived on for decades if not for Covid. And I'd like a reference to that 94% claim- sounds like BS to me.

Thailand vaccinating with 3 inferior vaccines. Two of them Chinese. China warned about the weakness of her vaccines! It will turn out all Thai people throughout the time need 3 times a vaccination coming years to get/keep that called herd immunity, which effects are not proven yet either. What a mess. If tea money/kick backs are involved, a fruitful garden for many years to come.

And the question is, did they from covid or did they die from multiple comorbidities after testing positive for covid ? The US CDC officially announced in september 2020 that 94% of the 220,000 US deaths attrributed to covid, were not from covid. They were from terminal co morbidities. The media refused to air the official statement which is on their website. Censorship by ommission !
