wtf am I even reading? there's only insane people here, some things are right, like 2 of them, you need healthcare, otherwise you will probably die if anything serious happens, and, people are leaving from Brasil. Basically anything else here is kind of bullsh*t.

Brazil has an enhanced strain of covid19.People say it's from the UK but it could be from anywhere.Although ccp and Xi is to blame there's no turning back but instead waiting our turn to die.There isn't a vaccine regardless of what any government claims and there's no antidote to stop it either. Covid19 attacks everyone no age limits. Governments will lie about anything and everything to avoid social unrest.But it's been happening for one year now and there's no end in sight until covid19 has eliminated us all.But China claimed all was well when it never was in China.China wanted to be the superpower of the world but it backfired on China so they'll be the superpower of death throughout China too.It's probably for the best humanity being deleted because it wasn't a world for humanity to live in anymore anyway. Infighting throughout the world people wanting constant upset thirsting for it. So welcome to reality death.

Uh... Some of these prices are outdated, since the epidemic started the prices at the market here in Rio skyrocketed, the 1kg rice is like R$8,00+, milk is around R$6,00, and I live in a poor area (Penha)

So many brazillians have left this country to marry into europe or the united states. Years and years and years. If the locals dont want to live here, why would anyone else?
