Dear Editor, I am writing as a concerned citizen in response to the letter by Dr Deacon Teapa, Dr Yin Yin May, Dr Mokora, Dr Lwin, Dr Aung, Dr Basili, and Dr Zhou published on February 9.
I personally have attended numerous TMO meetings and have
asked many questions that were unable to be adequately answered by Dr May.
Today, I wish to address the claims of protection made by
these TMO doctors named, in the response letter to Serena Hunter, as well as
claims the Covid-19 injection is safe and effective.

One other word of caution and this is very important, just
like in the sale of alcohol, keep it away from those who are underage.
The authorities now have no choice but to release and
discharge everyone brought up on trumped up charges regarding cannabis.
You must stop your mockery of justice or run the risk of
I want to thank biosecurity and I'm not being cheeky for
opening up the floodgates for our people to greatly benefit from the medicinal
