This is misinformation received via WhatsApp…
Roberto Petrella, Italian doctor denounces the following finding worldwide Covid 19 is a mass extermination program for the world population,
Excited by what he is about to say, and with a hoarse and torn voice, the Italian doctor Roberto Petrella has recorded an 8-minute video that is a wake-up call to the Italian people and also to the whole world. This brave and exemplary doctor only confirms what many of us have been seeing for months, that a worldwide genocide is on the way.
This is a video of extreme urgency, he begins by saying.
Covid 19 is a global program for population reduction, it is estimated that with the vaccine they want to impose at least 80% of the population will die
What they intend to inject is the most terrible of all known vaccines
Do not do any tests, they are not reliable tests. The virus test results are false because they are performed in the presence of fungal and bacterial infections. Rejecting tests is the only way to reject the vaccine
I have said it and I repeat it: no test is capable of detecting SARS-COV-2. Pay close attention because they will begin to test children and from there it will spread to the whole of society, they will begin to do massive tests to children in schools, once their child is tested they will begin to test the whole family and to all close contacts, the idea is that healthy people officially appear as sick
I remind you that we are not sick, we are healthy carriers that have viruses, that does not mean that we are sick, even if you test positive two or three times, that does not mean that you are sick.
THEY WILL MAKE YOU BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE WHO TESTS POSITIVE IS SICK, but that’s not true at all.
I ask you please not to fall into the trap that they want to set you
Once vaccinated we will all be weakened and we will meet certain death. Tell people not to get tested.
This video is so that you do not say that you were not warned.
The behavior of politicians is completely disheartening.
Most of the vaccinated people will cease to exist for society.
China is already doing real tests in several cities, Spain and Argentina are the pilot countries for Latin countries in relation to mass vaccination.
I will prefer death but not vaccination.
