An HIV expert... So many things wrong said in his article I am choosing not to add anything so not be cynical. But do some quick research and you will clearly see the many links of this HIV expert with major pharmaceutical companies like Jansen and Gilead...


and 5,166 vials of the antiviral medication, remdesivir.

...and Gilead, also the manufacturer of remdesevir. You have got to be joking. Another outrageous scandal linked to Big Pharma. First used for HIV (ha ha!!), then for Ebola, it turned out to be useless for both. But Gilead gave it another go for covid, and it was orginally actively promoted through notably Fauci (https://www.cnbc.com/2020/04/29/dr-anthony-fauci-says-data-from-remdesivir-coronavirus-drug-trial-shows-quite-good-news.html) back in March/April/May 2020... The EU bought 1 billion euros of that crap just... a few days before WHO finally recommended it AGAINST the use in covid patients in November 2020 (https://www.who.int/news-room/feature-stories/detail/who-recommends-against-the-use-of-remdesivir-in-covid-19-patients).

Dr Opass (Putcharoen) my a***!!
