Skip I'm no fan of Sinovac but it has some use to prevent serious illness and death, and yes breathing on others  is now considered  rude, tantamount to  deadly farts. Let's call it Varting

I agree with ematt. 
Most people would prefer that you didn't spread your germs because you are an anti-vaxxer.

ematt, i welcome your opinion of me. congratulations on getting the jab that doesnt guarantee immunity, infection, transmission or lifting of any covid restrictions. the vexxine is not FDA approved, is untested and released under EUA emergency use approval as a 2 year experiment. quoted from US library of medicne and CDC. good luck as you may need some.

Skip, get a grip on yourself mate! You seem to be losing touch with reality.

if 7 elderly people with pre existing co morbidities died of the flu in 2 months it wouldnt measure on the richter scale. add media scare tactics and massive PCR testing and you have a CASEDEMIC. W.H.O. official website has removed deaths as a requisite for a pandemic and now says cases constitute a pandemic, contrary to the dictionary. very convenient for state led terrorism of  the sheeple !
