    When you’re a country like Burma which has been the victim of human rights abuses from the illegal government headed by the criminal Thitsaphout Than Shwe then the people will suffer from disease. If the people of Burma remove Than Shwe and the rest of his disease riddled government then and only then will the so called unexplained disease will be stopped.
