Dr. Berger’s defence has my complete improve. The silencing of Dr. David Berger is an anti-democratic act through AHPRA, a scientific frame who has a accountability of overseeing the well-being of sufferers.

There were no less than 10,000 COVID-19 deaths in Australia thus far, and this quantity is ready to extend with the brand new surge because of new variants. That is without delay because of each Exertions and Liberal Executive coverage forcing the inhabitants to are living with this virus, inflicting each acute and long-term sickness, the latter within the type of Lengthy COVID to which there are lots of regarding unanswered questions.

All provisions to minimise the unfold of the virus—confirmed to be efficient and to which Dr. Berger has been so outspoken—are of no worry to people who want to punish a doctor who has stood through his phrases with medical truth. This silencing sends a transparent message as to what capitalist governments stand for—human existence is expendable—and the economic system and benefit don’t seem to be. This has to modify. Staff, scholars, scientists and scientific team of workers want to rally at the back of Dr. Berger and supply him the relentless voice he has given us.
