As you can see official figures show Influenza has been the bigger problem starting way back in March yet we read the fear stories about Covid rates and hospitalisations, yet looking at the official statistics you can clearly see Covid (at this time) is no longer a problem.

Any death is a tragedy, however when the Government and selected media outlets try and scare people with misleading statistics it creates a fear, the fear of the unknown, the not knowing what is going to happen, its not nice and creates an air of concern or worry which sadly leads to higher suicide rates.

Covid-19 is a thing, it is real and you have to take the right steps to protect yourself from it, however as we have said previously its nowhere near as bad as government, media and our local political people are claiming as you can see yourself.

We suggest 100% to be getting your jabs more so the influenza jab this year, the great news of course is the Flu jab has been around a long time unlike the so called experimental Covid vaccine which has not been around long enough and is currently causing many adverse reactions and needless deaths.
