Real virus, and it has killed a lot of people. No, people aren't dying of those other causes, and no, this is not some kind of planned operation. Your thinking is nasty and sinister, but that's on you.
Well the virus is real, it's the 2019 flu virus, nothing more. What's fake is the apoplectic hysteria of the left with its media toadies and quack scientists worldwide hyperventilating this yearly flu season into an apocalyptic end of the world outbreak.
That's where the crime lies.
