Do you believe the COVID-19 narrative?
Us: So what's happening?
Them: There's a virus in China. People are dying.
Us: Nothing for us to worry about though?
Them: Well, it is spreading from country to country...
Us: Like SARS, MERS, Zika, and lots of others did?
Them: It's just been declared a pandemic.
Us: Do we need to wear masks, like in China?
Them: No, masks don't work... and can be dangerous to your health.
Us: But we're being locked down now?
Them: Just briefly, to "flatten the curve".
Us: So I can't open my business?
Them: No, much too dangerous.
Us: Are there any treatments?
Them: No, just go home and self-isolate.
Us: What about hydroxychloroquine?
Them: Woah! Far too dangerous, we need to wait for a vaccine.
Us: How long will it take to produce a vaccine?
Them: Best case scenario would be 12 to 18 months, but that's very optimistic.
Us: Should I take Vitamin D, or maybe get some more exercise and slim down a bit?
Them: You could, but we don't really know if it helps.
Us: Now I have to wear a mask in the shops?
Them: Yes, we need to stop the spread.
Us: But you said masks didn't work.
Them: New research.
Us: How about ivermectin as a treatment, it looks promising.
Us: Hello...? Ivermectin?
Them: We need to wait for a vaccine.
Us: Will a vaccine be safe?
Them: Of course it will, you can be sure the pharma companies will take all necessary precautions.
Us: When can I re-open my business? I can't pay my bills.
Them: Here's some free money, stay at home and watch Netflix for a while.
Us: When will this all end?
Them: Well, we're going into the second wave now, so back to lockdowns for a short while again.
Us: I don't think I can take any more...
Them: Oh, wait, we have developed a vaccine.
Us: Wow, that was quick.
Them: Yes, it's super new technology... never been used on people before now.
Us: Does it work?
Them: 93% effective.
Us: What does that mean?
Them: Don't worry about that, just line up here and roll up your sleeve...
