    Ever notice something about the death rate statistics the media publishes never include, the ages!

    Most of the deaths are senior citizens in homes between the ages of 77 – 89 years of age.

    The new vaccination to combat this virus is reported to be 95%.

    The survival rate of this virus is 99%.

    Interesting!
