Iowa Covid Positivity Rate Hits 50 Percent As Cases Rise Across The Country | NBC News NOW

  • Explain to me: why the Democrats are questioning an Election in a House Race Mairette Miller-Meeks and Amy Hart. Amy Hart has gone to House Committee to get it overturned, instead of going through the Courts like POTUS Trump. This is happening in Iowa and they are hearing the case. Yet, they refused POTUS Trump. Why are the Democrats getting away with this , yet POTUS Trump was silenced? Explain I want to understand???? And this is nor in the Media???? Why???

  • State Republican leaders continue to fail Iowans (JAN 2021) throughout pandemic by taking NO meaningful action to formulate-nor implement-any safety plan(s) or mandates to SAVE OUR LIVES..appearing instead to follow Trump's lead in ignoring & downplaying severity. Inexplicably Iowans continue supporting deceptive practices of the"GOP" (!) -truly beyond comprehension...

  • Positivity rate is meaningless. If it is low, that just means there are a lot of people getting tested that shouldn't be getting tested. Too many people are getting tested that have no business getting tested. If you are exposed, quarantine yourself until symptoms appears then get tested or not, at that point it doesn't matter.

  • What a joke the media is, covid 19 is not getting any worse, testing is up 90% as of now, so the numbers are going to go up, the media is doing nothing but spreading fear of a virus that has one of the highest survival rates at over 99.3%, this is a massive scam, if they had a winner in the election, this would be over, but because they wanted to cheat in the election, which they haven't reported on in any type of way, the massive amount of evidence is crazy, the left cheated, the media hasn't reported any of the evidence, which is funny, because all they wanted for past 4 years was investigations lol how funny is this, then you have the sheep that is falling for the whole thing.

How is it Black Friday was the one (if not the highest) sells yet in march over 30 million people filed for Pandemic Unemployment? How is it millions of people are expected to be evicted yet the Toyotas, Hyundais, Audis, BMWs Nissans and GMs are still selling well? How this happen with millions of people expected to be evicted according to the media. If these many millions of people are laid off, why would the auto industry be selling well? That dont make any sense.

I just can't believe how incredibly ignorant these Governors are. They never even seem to consider the deaths that will happen because of their own political choices. They need to go to all these hospitals and meet face to face all the people that are suffering and dying because of their selfishness.

  • Why are there many supposedly infec.ted and deaths by CO.VID in the world? The P.C.R MANUFACTURER called CREATI.VE DIAGNOSTICS clarifies on their page (link below): "THIS PRODUCT IS FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR DIAGNOSTIC USE." It also says that it IS NOT SPECIFIC for this virus. For this reason it detects MANY more VIRU.SES and mentions them right there, you can read them yourself at the beginning of the PDF: non-specific interference of Influenza A Virus (H1N1), Influenza B Virus (Yamagata), Respiratory Syncytial Virus (type B), Respiratory Adenovirus (type 3, type 7), Parainfluenza Virus (type 2), Mycoplasma Pneumoniae, Chlamydia Pneumoniae, ETC. At the end it says "LIMITATIONS" and they explain: "* 1. The detection result of this product is only for clinical reference, and it should not be used as the only evidence for clinical diagnosis and treatment. The clinical management of patients should be considered in combination with their symptoms / signs, history, other laboratory tests and treatment responses. The detection results should not be directly used as the evidence for clinical diagnosis, and are only for the reference of clinicians.* That is to say, the figures of supposedly infected people and deaths from CO.VID are false because they have been MISDIAGNOSED since P.C.R alone DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY PROOF. And for that reason, it is necessary to do what it says above and request autopsies when the people have died WITH symptoms. The virus kills just like the common flu does, and that is why you do not have to be afraid, or live in an eternal lockdown and without socializing for life. What happens is that because of the P.C.R now everything is diagnosed as SARS-COV.2 or CO.VID due to the misuse of it as if it served as a diagnosis and that is ANTI-SCIENTIFIC, as detailed by the manufacturer. We cannot accept deception and manipulation. The CO.VID deaths and cases are a HO.AX and the truth is that WE DON'T NEED a beta toxic either.
