John Davies, Mullumbimby

This morning, I found in my letterbox (Mullumbimby) a four page ‘rant’ about the harm of lockdowns, the case against mandatory vaccines, and the benefits of antiviral therapies. The document is anonymous, it does say it is from the ‘COVID medical network’ but there is no address or contact details.

As a reference, it cites three doctors; one is not in Australia, one is a GP on the north Sunshine Coast and one is an anaesthetist who has a long history of being critical of Dan Andrews. None are from the Byron Shire.

The document shows no understanding of the COVID virus, its effects, or how it is transmitted. It is pure scaremongering – and targeted at the Byron Shire.

As the document is in mail boxes, it is indiscriminate with regard to its recipients. The affect will be to generate confusion and fear in a time when it is essential that we work together as a responsible society.

I regard the authors as both gutless and criminal in their intent.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. The flyer has also been distributed on the Central Coast, I found it in my letterbox this morning. The COVID Medical Network has a very schmick website and ABN but have been under review by the TGA for endorsing hydroxychlorquine .
    Membership is sketchy but as covered in an earlier comment credibility of several members is questionable.
    So far today I have spent time on the phone after receiving phone calls from some of my older neighbours, distressed at having received the flyer , I have encouraged them to stay positive and to talk to their Local Health District.

  2. We in Victoria have also been letter bombed by anti vaxers, Only this organisation is based in the USA and people are asked to print 10 copies and drop them off in letter boxes in their neihbourhoods. Sicjk Sick sick people Hugo Ip

  3. Dear Liz L, Wendy, Hugh Ip,

    The COVID Medical Network is simply trying to save lives and promote informed consent. The information that they present is factual and grounded in real science – this means that organisation did not use Channel 7, 9 or the ABC as the arbiters of truth. It is not two or three people with way-out views. I am not with that group but I am a member of global group that nears 60,000 health specialists in number. It includes some of the most notable scientists, medical and public health experts on Earth – many from the top ranking universities in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia. There are now thousands of peer reviewed journal articles that counter the narrative being fed to Australians on the safety and efficacy of the Covid injection. That is, it is neither safe nor effective. If you received a warning in your letterbox than you are among the lucky ones – many will never get that benefit. My advice to you is to not take the COVID Medical Network’s information as the truth or a lie – or anyone else’s advice (especially government or the news). Do your own research – read the studies, listen to the personal accounts of those injured, go to the VAERS site and see how many people have died or been injured as officially reported. You will find similar numbers on official websites in Europe and the UK. when you have the full facts, then write your views. Seek the truth and you will find it.
