    When considering statistics and numbers reported in regards to Covid 19 it is worth noting that in the UK a recent request for freedom of information from the office of national statistics found that for the number of deaths where Covid-19 was the only cause mentioned on the death certificate, 1 Feb 2020 - 31 Dec 2021, the total number was 6,183 people - average age 82 yrs.

    Just 6,183 died of Covid 19 over 2 years.

    Let that sink in .

    The vast majority of the numbers reported were people who died WITH Covid 19 and not OF Covid 19 and they mostly had co-morbitidies.

    Tænk, read “The Real Anthony Fauci” and get back to us when you learn what really caused HIV “virus” (never proven to exist) deaths.

    “Uruguay ranks 18th in the list of countries based on the percentage of their populations having received the full vaccination scheme.”

    “As a country, Uruguay ranks 70th in the number of SARS-CoV-2 cases.” Uruguay, by population, is #134 of countries in the world.

    The 70th largest country in the world is Senegal, with almost five times the population.

    From the WHO:

    - Senegal: 84,374 confirmed cases of COVID-19; 1,929 deaths, reported to WHO. As of 6 January 2022, a total of 1,923,773 vaccine doses administered.

    - Uruguay: 588,995 confirmed cases of COVID-19; 6,308 deaths, reported to WHO. As of 21 January 2022, a total of 7,265,168 vaccine doses administered.

    - Uruguay v. Senegal: Uruguay – 0.21% (1/5) the population of Senegal; 278% more vaccines, 598% more cases; 227% more deaths.

    I realize that similarity in vaccines administered and deaths might upset coincidence theorists, but there you are.
