The Hon. Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr.
President, Republic of the Philippines
Malacañang, National Capital Region
Dear Mr. President,
Greetings of Peace!
For more than two years, Filipinos have suffered under the various restrictions imposed by the government’s COVID-19 policies. But, in three months, you removed most of them. Filipinos want to thank you for these acts of scientific integrity, strategic foresight, empathy, and courage that can now increase the public health and welfare of Filipinos. Please allow us to elaborate.
First, you removed mandatory vaccinations. The nation breathed a heavy sigh of relief. Many Filipinos were hesitant to take the vaccines but the previous government forced them to do so with tragic consequences. We know this from the thousands who told us. The Covid vaccines are experimental and thus cannot be mandated (R.A. 11525).
Worst, the vaccines were rushed to market. The usual safety trials were too short and involved shortcuts. These procedures compromised the quality of the Covid vaccines. They are not safe and effective. R.A 11525 acknowledged this by providing a fund to indemnify those who may be injured by the vaccines. Sure enough, this has come to pass. Kindly take a look at the latest data from DOH’s FDA on the government’s mass vaccination program.
|Total Number of Reports of Adverse Reactions from|
|Total Number of Reports of Serious Adverse Reactions||9,426|
|Number of Reports on Vaccine Deaths||2,620|
In addition, the Philippine Statistics Authority has reported over 290,000 excess deaths in 2021, as compared with the past five years, just when mass vaccinations took place. This timing is concerning. Many countries are also reporting high vaccine deaths, serious injuries, and excess deaths in 2021.
Second, in your SONA address last July 2022, you said no more lockdowns. Both Houses of Congress responded enthusiastically. You won’t believe the incredible joy that Filipinos felt with your promise. We have all been locked down for months on end. Be assured your decision is backed by dozens of scientific studies that demonstrate that lockdowns do not work. Instead, they cause massive physical, psychological (depression and suicide) and societal
damage, including to our economy.
And now, Mr. President, you issued Executive Order 3 removing mandatory facemasks in key areas. This EO energized the country. Once more the science supports your decision. Masks do not work. Instead, they can make people sick.
Allow us to also thank Vice-President Sara Duterte for supporting your enlightened policies. We thank her for remaining steadfast and committed to having face-to-face classes without any need for vaccination, despite criticism from a minority of parents. She stopped physical harm, health deterioration, and mental dysfunction. Many countries had this policy last year. Now we
have caught up. Kudos!
Mr. President, school children (19 years and below) have a 99.997% chance of surviving COVID-19. They do not need the vaccine. The science shows vaccines cause great harm to our children. Over 100 kids will be harmed for every one child temporarily protected by the vaccines.
We also want to thank your Cabinet for supporting your goal to balance health and having a peaceful, sustainable society including a vibrant economy. The world has learned that we can never sacrifice our rights and freedoms, especially freedom of thought, at the altar of safety. Lack of full scientific disclosure and debate can only bring totalitarian rule and societal stagnation and anger.
Mr. President, your decisions are congruent with significant policies that key governments are making worldwide. Take Florida, the number one destination for people running away from states that have coercive COVID-19 policies.
Since the mid-2020s, Florida had face-to-face schools and no lockdowns, and mandatory vaccinations/face masks. Yet Florida did not have a health disaster.
The Centers of Disease Control of the U.S. (CDC) recently revised their COVID-19 guidelines. No lockdowns. Asymptomatic testing is discouraged. No facemasks in most situations. CDC now values natural immunity. Most importantly, no more discrimination between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This practice violates the equal protection clause of our Constitution.
CDC said: “CDC’s COVID-19 prevention recommendations no longer differentiate based on a person’s vaccination status because breakthrough infections occur ”, meaning, the vaccinated can still be infected.https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/71/wr/mm7133e1.htm (August 19, 2022)
Mr. President, you are embarking on a massive rollout of booster shots. We understand you want to protect the health of Filipinos. Problem: This program de facto recognizes that the original vaccines are not effective and durable.
Furthermore, boosters have adverse effects. Scientists from Harvard and Johns Hopkins found that boosters can be 18 to 98 times worse than COVID19 in adverse effects. Plus, more than 22,000 students have to be boosted to prevent one COVID-19 hospitalization.https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=4206070 This is simply disastrous and unethical.
Furthermore, scientific studies are showing that expired vaccines are not as effective as the fresher ones. In addition, FDA just approved Pfizer’s new booster vaccines in only two days upon application, with no human clinical trials. These boosters are unproven and will most likely be harmful and ineffective.
There are precedents. Pfizer has a court case on rigging its vaccine trials. In addition, it tried to obtain, unsuccessfully, a 75-year embargo on the release of its confidential report to the FDA. This secret report showed its vaccines resulted in the death of 1,223 individuals in a period of three months and the serious injury of over 25,000. In addition, Pfizer lists over 1,000 kinds of vaccine-induced serious side effects, which took around 9 pages, single-spaced, to merely enumerate, let alone, describe the diseases.
Moderna’s bivalent boosters will not be any better. It was designed to fight both the original Wuhan virus and the BA.1 variant. Both are mostly no longer in circulation. BA.5 variant is now predominant in our country and other parts of the world. The vaccines will not be effective. Worst, it will continue to harm people the way it did with its original vaccines.
Connected with your new policies, you may also be already aware that some schools and local government units are not following your policies. We hope you do something about this. It is creating confusion and havoc in local areas.
Mr. President, one way to achieve this is to NOT renew the Executive Order placing the country in a state of a national health emergency. That old EO expired last September 12, 2022. The statement below from the lead author of the new CDC guidelines supports our proposal.
‘This guidance acknowledges that the pandemic is not over, but also helps us move to a point where COVID-19 no longer severely disrupts our daily lives’. (NPR Interview.)
She can say this seemingly contradictory statement because WHO changed the definition of a “pandemic” to mean the spread of an infectious disease but not necessarily killing a lot of people. Thus, one can have a “pandemic” with minimal deaths and thus not “disrupt” our daily lives. So no health emergency.
Mr. President, you may want to give Filipinos a deeper choice. There are early treatment protocols that have worked wonders in countries including but not limited to the U.S., Japan and India. Ivermectin, for example, has enabled Uttar Pradesh in India, to declare its region basically free from the threat of COVID-19. Uttar Pradesh has a population of more than 240 million people, around twice the population of the Philippines. Yet, there is no panic there around COVID-19.
In addition, hundreds of scientific studies have demonstrated that our natural immunity is more powerful, comprehensive, durable, and effective when compared with vaccine-induced immunity. Vaccines require a healthy immune system to function. Yet many studies have shown that the Covid vaccines wane and become less effective over time. Part of the reason for this is that vaccines are harming our immune system gradually over time. One study, for example, showed that natural immunity can be 2700% more effective than vaccine-induced immunity.
Mr. President, these scientific facts are worthy of your consideration because you will be making policy decisions based on accurate science. We encourage your government to undertake a major program on enhancing the immune system of Filipinos. This will lead to greater resilience among Filipinos so that they can better withstand COVID-19 and other health challenges that will emerge in the future.

Please continue with your style of governance that, so far, is open and willing to re-examine government policies. You may wish to obtain advise from diverse qualified individuals and foster an atmosphere of constructive truth-seeking among your Cabinet and throughout government.
Meanwhile, CCH will continue to critically engage your government and its future policies. We will criticize unsound policies, if necessary. But we will also express gratitude, if deserved, like now.
Truth is our guiding star. To paraphrase Christ: “We shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set us Free.” We see our mission to be a constructive conscience regarding many challenges the country faces.
May you continue with your beginning good work and may you end up becoming one of the most beneficial Presidents of the Philippines, not for yourself, but for the country. God bless!
