    Looks like Billions of Dollors business for Vaccine and Online Businesses. That's what Communist chinese and western elites - Big Billionaires want at expense of Common people using this virus, Gold standard RTPCR tests. Are these RTPCR tests trustworthy? Most of corona deaths are due to choking of medical infrastructure and both mild and severe cases rushing or made to rush to hospitals also without proper personal care to patients due to fear of catching the virus after showing positive through these high sensitive communist RTPCR Tests. All Comminist chinese and globalists plan to decimate people by hyping fear of virus using their mainstream media, creating medical facilities shortages also mainly to raise fear and push for their vaccines or their lucrative business using their 'gold standard' high sensitive RTPCR tests which may detect seasonal corona viruses 2021 (seasonal flu) also as Covid 19. Using this virus, fear of virus, misusing knowledge of it These communist chinese and elites trying to ruin the whole world and creating chaos due to shutdown, shortages then finally taking advantage of situation controlling the world with the help of their huge military. With a small virus win the whole world or bring communism seems to be chinese communist policy! and along with elites bring their communist one world government or new world order.
