    I have said this many times in the Daily Mirror, only your own immune system can protect you from this deadly Covid-19. The doctors are hopelessly clueless they can only offer oxygen in the hospitals. This is the TRUTH.

    I am a medical specialist in SL. I didnt like his policies. He spoke against University students. He also received a free education. He had forgotten that. But I wish him eternal rest. People do not realize that this life is short and money cannot prevent Death. Its sad that he became a victim of Covid infection. No funeral ceremony.
