  1. Please view 'an open letter to Dr Andrew Hill' by Dr Tess Lawrie and make your own mind up. Now watch the film 'Dallas buyers club' and the trashing of safe effective meds replaced by expensive deathly meds that killed tens of thousands of young men. We have been here before folks. Oh hold on the same person seems to be linked to both 🤔

  2. Being an avid follower on Dr. John Campbell’s YouTube channel for a couple of years now. I have to say that never once did I’ve ever come across any topic mentioned without any accompanying reliable references. All information presented by Dr. Campbell is always as of the available data available from relevant official resources at that particular moment and updated accordingly whenever there is to be one.
    I am really quite surprise that the platform’s AI algorithm ever suggests any violation of guidelines, or coming close to it by this channel. So far Dr. Campbell has always been conforming to the principals of non-biased, transparent scientific and medical reporting, even honorably going beyond simply the “acceptable” moral standard of good scientific reporting to being an “excellent” one.
    Thank you Dr. Campbell your time, hard works, and dedication, especially throughout this pandemic, to provide the world with a comprehensive take on the current development in the medical field, which I am certain most of your viewers share the same gratitude.

  3. What a very clever man, of course I do not say that Iver of the two are recommended for the treatment of Covid 19. Of course we know that you would never ever recommend it without clear indication from NIH. What a terrible person you would be should you do such a thing. Such misinformation would be so terrible.
    I have a rash on my leg, I am off to the doc for a consultation as I cannot seem to get rid of it.

  4. I wouldn't trust anything that the WHO says. I won't be silenced by any of these vile criminals. I have witnessed a special evil these last two and a half years.
