The real virus is corruption

From Thairath, April 29, 2020
Title: This disease is… a chronic outbreak!
On the viruses: Corruption; Cheating; Commission; Supporting funds
On the sword: House committee on anti-corruption
On the man’s shirt: T
On the paper: Disclose corruption on the daily subsistence allowance
Phi Nooring: Can’t defeat it.
Mouse: This disease destroys the country.

[Refers to the recent corruption case raised by Veera Somkwamkid, secretary-general of the People’s Network Against Corruption, together with a military officer. They submitted a case of corruption in the military’s daily subsistence allowance to Pol. Gen. Sereepisuth Temeeyaves, head of the House committee on corruption.
This cartoon ridicules efforts made to address corruption cases related to government, such as corruption involving supporting funds for renovating temples or receiving commission fees for government projects, contending that corruption is endemic and cannot seem to be stopped.
Does anyone know the meaning of the “T” on the man’s shirt?]
