  1. Lola palusa Super You are love 💘 Guapas y Guapos 🌈💃🌠🎤🎼🎵🎺🎹😍😘🎶 que Dios los Bendiga Siempre del Corona Viruz Covid 19 Abrazo 😇 You are estar lola Palusa God bless you 🙌

  2. Vaccinated people are coming down with Covid now … have to wait and see how this plays out in media with that political science.

  3. Worrying about Covid when almost 2 million illegals are coming through the Southern border with Covid and other diseases…….They are being put in cities throughout the US and many refuse the vaccine

  4. Love that this is happening. For those that are scared, lock yourself up in your dwelling and don’t pretend your concerned for anyone else but yourselves. Look at all those people having fun and loving each other instead hating each other.

  5. Oh cool ! Just a few miles away from record number homicide neighborhoods . Imagine all the ppl who are gonna get robbed.

  6. Your vaccination status is between you and your doctor, not the mayor, governor, or the city of Chicago. Keep that in mind folks.

  7. Its not a good idea. I know people want to have fun, but we have to use common sense. COVID cases are rising in the US. People are going to get infected with the virus.

  8. 503 days into all of this ^^^ hype, yet how many healthy individuals do you know of that really died of covid without the presence of a completely unrelated illness at time of death?

    How is it that the homeless have not been completely wiped out? They are doing just fine, as any honest city dweller will attest to.

    How many celebs/famous people can you name that have died of covid? And, I'm not talking about the ones that had stage 4 cancer, Dementia, etc at TOD.

  9. They are making people show their proof of vaccine or negative test results. Unvaxed have to wear a mask. Notice how the "science" never acknowledges antibodies? It's as if our own immune systems don't offer any financial gain to those invested in vaccines.

  10. How bout illegals crossing the border? Oh wait, that couldn't be the cause. How stupid do they think people are? Enough of the BS numbers.

  11. What's going on in the Middle East? Why did the United Snakes of America waste our TAX DOLLARS on Over 700 Jet's to be Created by April of 2021?

    Especially while there is a so called pandemic happening and there are still over 250,000 homeless Adults in America?

    Again who's writing these Narratives? 

    Over 30 Major News Organizations Linked to George Soros …

    China is the largest source of carbon dioxide emissions, interesting has anyone in Beijing, China catch/caught this so called Virus, yet?

    We've been asking this question since June of 2020. 

    BTW when was their first case reported?

    It's a scary life to live when you know what's about to happen to you, especially once people start catching wind to WHO'S ALL INVOLVED.

    So let's get this straight A society which kills millions of unborn babies a year for convenience, has shut itself down and is now preaching about the safety of adults?

    Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)

    Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is a normal product of metabolism within the body’s cells. The blood carries this carbon dioxide waste to the lungs to be exhaled out of the system. When there is an elevated level of CO2 within the blood, complications occur. Doctors refer to this medical condition as hypercapnia, or hypercarbia. This can occur through health problems, environmental exposure to carbon dioxide or unsafe scuba diving practices or faulty diving equipment 1⭐

    .

    Shortness of Breath

    Too much carbon dioxide within the blood causes the body’s pH level to plummet and become dangerously acidic, explains Auburn University at Montgomery School of Sciences. The higher the acidic quality, the more difficult it is for the blood’s hemoglobin to pick up oxygen. The result is rapid breathing in order to increase lowered oxygen levels and, eventually, difficulty in catching one’s breath.

    A study revealed in a report by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) exposed 42 volunteers to inhalation of 7.6 and 10.4 percent of carbon dioxide within 2.5 to 10 minutes 1⭐

    . Headaches were a common adverse effect experienced by the study group individuals.

    Increased Heart Rate

    The human body reacts to carbon dioxide retention. As available oxygen lowers and carbon dioxide levels begin to rise, receptors within the body sense a problem and send messages to the heart to beat faster, according to Auburn University. This is an attempt to increase the amount of blood going to the lungs in hopes that CO2 is released and more oxygen inhaled.

    Dizziness or Confusion.

    In the same study results revealed by the EPA, the other most common side affect from excessive carbon dioxide exposure was dizziness. Those who inhaled high concentrations in only one minute had initial dizziness and then experienced bouts of confusion and inability to focus or reason.

    Seizures

    If 30 percent or more of carbon dioxide is inhaled, the body begins to convulse within 1.5 minutes, states the EPA. By this time, the body is unable to get rid of the carbon dioxide and obtain oxygen fast enough on its own. The body’s receptors begin to lose control of body movement.

    Unconsciousness or Coma

    Humans exposed to high concentrations of carbon dioxide in a short time frame can experience catastrophic, lethal effects, according to the EPA. Instant exposure to 17 to 30 percent of CO2 after only one minute can result in unconsciousness and coma.

    Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

    Respiratory Arrest

    Medical conditions which cause weakening of the lungs can result in dangerously high levels of carbon dioxide. If the muscles are not strong enough to expand the lungs to sufficiently inhale, only a small amount of air and little to no carbon dioxide is exhaled. If untreated, this leads to lower and lower oxygen levels and eventually, cessation of breathing.
