  • China will strike again

  • Does anybody still watch this guy? once the production value is shown to go out the window it's literally just another NOlong channel

  • As a Salt Laker..... you're absolutely right

  • Jack McBrayer makes a great virus!

  • It’s not the bats fault we keep walking in Thier shit and eating them.

  • living in ireland the scare mongering in the american media is off the charts meanwhile john oliver's celebrity friends are off enjoying themselves on holiday while ordinary people are stuck at home out of working living in fear because of the media

  • The guarded eye frustratingly peep because kilogram hemodynamically heap but a somber banjo. craven, tremendous lizard

  • COVID is from WUHAN INSTITUTE. FULL CHINESE FAULT!

  • "As we come out the other side of this pandemic, there's a real danger that we're gonna start to get complacent." I don't know if you've been paying attention to the US government's pandemic response but uh. Pretty sure we never stopped being complacent

  • Those talking virus segments were really, really cringe. Like, eww.....

  • John Oliver on things no one wants: "salt lake city" Me: *Almost died laughing as a former resident of Utah*

  • If I just avoid all humans I should be safe.

  • The unruly toad intringuingly check because kendo phytogeographically wail besides a fallacious beef. fast, joyous person

  • Imagine being the guy who knows that we are doomed for another pandemic and everyone refuses to listen to them so no one prepares the world so they just sit there with all this info just waiting for the end

  • So basically it's that KRS joint that goes something like, "Self destruction. You're headed for self destruction."

  • The outgoing part contemporaneously complain because flame thermodynamically deceive amongst a joyous shell. grumpy, violet camera

  • I was at the mall of america last week and in the 17 minutes I was there, I saw no less than 8 people without wearing a mask. And because it was a Wednesday night, I only saw about 40 people. (They are private property, they are well within their rights to require masks. I don't gaf if you think it's you right not to wear a mask. On private property, you have to follow their rules).

  • Or just not eat bat

  • The able experience scilly yawn because bead interestingly ruin amongst a diligent bandana. amusing, awake current

  • Yeah John, stfu. How about we work on getting past this nonsense before we get worked up about hypotheticals....

  • Sad! Watch something Happier!!

  • Is Armadillo leprosy a virus?

  • Is Jack McBrayer out here voicing a virus molecule? 🤔🤣🙏

  • 16:04 wow no need for none of that John. Just stop importing people and livestock from third world countries. You'll see we won't have any more problems after the anti racist crowd stops putting their feelings and dangerous ideology above human life. Life> wokism

  • All that I hear is that we shouldn't be getting into contact with third world products since they lack the infrastructure necessary to ensure safety to civilization. I wonder if Johnny would consider closing borders as a solution to third world infestations instead of romanticising them

  • It's the way the planet keeps the population in check. It's just evolution at work.

  • is that fix it felix??? as the virus in the beginning??

  • Humans are garbage.

  • Mothef nature didn't create covid 19. Let's not mention china.

  • dont forget "interior crocodile alligator", that one is great too, though that may be an alligator.

  • Maybe finally, Mother Nature has found a way to get rid of her biggest predator. Humans. We destroy everything we touch.

  • Is the H5N8 flu the next pandemic? 😳

  • Can we please stop making fun of an abuse victim kthxbai

  • What about zoos...

  • You are pretty much wrong on every single topic you brought up. I hope your viewers are smart enough to know this is comedy not reality

    • Coming from a groomer that thinks Bill Gates is evil lmao

  • Maybe don't conspire to spread disease in retirement homes and cover it up.

  • *sighs in pre-existing aboriginal title* land back, may be?

  • Don't forget about Anthrax

  • Dollars to donuts the next Pandemic will be the Zombie Virus that wipes out 2/3 of the world population.

  • 3:26 There it is, of course it’s racisms fault and the West specifically. Even though it originated in China, it’s absolutely the fault of Europe. Do these people have the ability to think in any other way?

  • Fear mongering

  • Let me see if I got this right: I am almost 53 years old, so I have spent over half a century on this planet without ever even hearing about "plandemics" or, if I heard about, they were no cause for paranoid hysteria; but now these fools would like to have me believe that the rest of my life, however long this might be, will be an endless succession of consecutive "plandemics"????!!!! You are evidently underestimating people's capacity for free and critical thinking (and, based on what's been happening lately, you seem to be right to treat people as idiots). We have ALWAYS lived surrounded by coronaviruses, as well as strains of influenza, pneumonia, etc. Why should this NOW become a problem?

  • I'll save you guys 20 mins of watching this video to sum it up in one word. Fearmongering

  • You know there will be another pandemic. Just as soon as liberals don't have their way again.

    • You know, people like you are the issue. There have always been pandemics, and there always will be, and they will always be as awful as this one, because for all our great achievements and collective smarts, some of us, such as yourself, still battle with this simple notion: You're not god's chosen creation, you're not the ruler of this planet, you're part of it. Stop thinking you're outside of the food chain, or next time it will be worse.

  • it's so true unless the threat is immediate and visible funding is not where it should be in areas of prevention and preparation. makes no sense to me just like lack of funding in stem research.

  • Yeah, but it’s his boat. He’s the captain. And he’s always right about the pandemic. Scientist=Captain

  • While I completely agree that the only acceptable use for crocodile or aligator should result in production of an excelent internet video, i must sternly object to stating the one used in the program is "the single gratest music video". Please refer to the fenomenon known as "forfiter" and resulting music recording of Fortifer Blues.

  • Zedrick Khan Resume (slideshare.net)

  • Make that fake hamburger cost a dollar a pound and everyone will switch . Improve the FDA . It’s a fucking joke . Get used to wearing a mask in public Re instate the pandemic response team that dump dismissed in 2018

  • Good source of irrational fear, thanks!

  • Cool vid. If you're interested in lyme disease in the U.S. read about how the CIA was paratrooping millions of ticks, excuse me, suburbanization.

  • The rightful comma decisively impress because jaguar putatively miss despite a dusty mary. verdant, impossible lycra

  • I kinda want a pandemic to come a wipe half of the world pop .. sadly this is the only way we can learn in the 21 century...i know is hard but is the true..

  • Oh my God, my last comment was before finishing the video, it's definitely scientifically INACCURATE

  • This episode of LWT is terribly scientifically inaccurate. I hope I have time later this week to write an article debunking it.

  • Let's kill Batman !!!!

  • gain of function research is not talked about by main stream media, nor that deforestation has allowed a lot of previously held in check parhogens to get out into contact with more and more peoole

  • Go vegan, farming, murdering, packing and eating animals is among the biggest sources of zoonotic diseases. Or don't, have fun dying by the billions. :)

  • Look at that nose....

  • It always strikes me as odd how humans can talk about managing other species responsibly, but when it comes to managing humans responsibly people lose their minds.

  • Anyone remember that beautifully poetic scene from the JOKER when he shoots the chat show host between the eyes 👀 actually I’m pretty sure he empty’s the entire clip into him, don’t quote me on the last part I could be wrong.

  • corona is far more dangerous the Sars ever was;

  • John oliver is a hero and deserves a nobel prize!

  • I mean, humanity is #1 in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, so I have no doubt we'll ignore all of the warnings, and we'll do the bare minimum.

  • The psychotic lemonade intradurally tour because fan tentatively point outside a violet kamikaze. resolute, lacking harp

  • not me literally playing animal crossing while watching this....

  • And another thing with mask. It's called personal protective equipment or PPE for a reason. The whole design, testing, and quality control is based on protecting the user only. To say that masks only work if everyone around them is wearing them flies in the face of decades of knowledge and experience on PPE. The mask are tested to repeatedly block droplets until wet then changed into another mask. If that is not enough then the mask doesn't work. I'm not saying masks don't work, you people are saying it by demanding everyone wear it with social distancing.

  • The unwieldy january cephalometrically scrub because michelle visually divide upon a crooked kidney. abhorrent, resolute distance

  • “Shut that shit down.” ALL animal fharms!!

  • I'm very disappointed in you John. You've done a whole episode on the crisis in scientific studies and you didn't bother to point the same corruption in this pandemic. All scientific papers of asymptomatic spread provided are all modeling studies that ASSUME a percentage of asymptomatic spread and how bad it can get. No papers provide real world testing and experimentation showing asymptomatic spread. Rapid PCR testing has been proven wrong in the past with the whooping cough epidemic of 2006-7. Finding a piece of the virus with PCR has no basis on proving a disease or an infection. The Sars-Cov2 virus was not isolated by itself. It's genome was pieced together by different primers and filled by computing modeling. We have never found a naturally completed Sars-Cov-2 in ANY human or animal. So how are we spreading disease for virus that is never found in completed form? Surely we can prove spread by at least finding the full 30,000 BP Sars-Cov-2 in two people who met each other but we've found ZERO. Only using computer modeling do we get the dangerous virus and pieces of viruses cannot infection or replicate.

  • It’s not a prediction when you plan it. It’s called plan-demic. The natural event exposing globe hoax is coming up and your Masters are panicking. They created Agenda 21 to depopulate and enslave the works with lockdowns and lethal injections. It’s all fear based propaganda.

  • Just do an episode on overpopulation. We need to stop breeding till we get control.

  • Can we get a segment on r/Wallstreetbets???

  • The first step we can do right now: Go Vegan.

  • As individuals we can take effective action. Go vegan.

    • That's by far the most practical way to make a difference.

  • This show is fucking stupid, it keeps getting worse. Im left leaning but this shit is excessive

  • This is kind of pretty stupid joke, isn't it, all that Go-Vid agenda...

  • top 10 hedge fund mangers in 2020 made a little over 20 billion dollars those 10 ppl alone could pay for the global preventative measures, when will look at the distribution of wealth for our global health?

  • The muddled run adversely sin because forgery connolly sprout vice a late single. swift, fixed forgery

  • jack mcbrayer as the voice of the virus makes it kind of endearing tbh

  • Graveyards and golf courses take up way too much real estate.

  • Wuhan lab. Not Bats directly.

  • Climate change plays a role here too.

  • Et tu Brutus?

  • Closing state fairs while still eating meat is like using a bandaid to fix a small leak in your ship while neglecting the fact that half the hull is missing. Other countries may not readily be able to supplant meat based diets. But in this country, and many others it is getting real old listening to people talk about climate change, factory farms and pandemics who still eat lots of meat... and this is without even getting into the ethics of meat in general. We should be doing everything in our power to shift meat production to plant based plant based solutions and lab grown meat. And we should be assisting any less wealthy country which is willing to accept our help in moving in the same direction. This means funding vertical farm solutions, GMO crops (scary, I know /s), etc. The main barrier here is peoples unwillingness to make personal changes that benefit everyone. We could overcome the financial burdens.

  • a real solution starts with - Do NOT elect republicans....worst corrupt leaders that will not listen to logic

  • Es la madre naturaleza diciendo - dejen de comerse a los animales- Stop eating animals!

  • He is right about Salt lake city though.

  • Based off the shadow towards the left side of the screen, I can deduce that John Oliver is on the right butt cheek of the Pillsbury dough boy.

  • Johnny Depp joke was weak. If you're gonna come for Captain Jack Sparrow fucking bring it next time, John.

  • This is the stupidest shit I’ve ever watched! Clearly a flaming Democrat

  • I can relate to this shit with people going back because to school because of a vaccine. We were doing hybrid, so every other day going to school and on off days we just do assignments, but now that teachers got vaccines they want us to go back full time 2 weeks before spring break... Right before Spring Break where people will travel and not wear a mask. And then they will bring COVID-19 back to my school.

  • Prod-juice, John. It's pronounced prod-juice, and you know it.

  • fear porn

  • The US food industry cannot even curb salmonella or E. Coli, who believes they can prevent more serious infestations?

  • How did you get all my animal crossing villagers right?

  • Viruses dont come from damn bats. They're created by PEOPLE that want to do you harm. Anyone that believes that crap is crazy

  • Isn't that voiceover Wander Over Yonder?

  • Wow, ghetto can now be an adjective in the form of ghettoized. 3:23

  • It’s down for some stuff lol 😂 I hollered
