A person that I know told me that when he caught the coronavirus months ago it lasted 3 weeks of high fever and weird nightmare ,he said this illeness is different than anything flu he ever had,and a friend of mine who had it too but didn't have any symptoms lasted a little over month before he tested negative .
Ok so he’s ending this drama by end of 2021 and only need 30-60% of the world to get injected. Let’s start with him and government officials
