Anti-vaxxer who attended COVID-19 party to catch the virus, succeeded in doing so and died. A man who is yet to be identified, died last week in Austria after attending a COVID-19 party in Bolzano, South Tyrol, northern Italy.
After attending similar parties in the area, three additional persons were transported to the hospital and diagnosed with COVID. There have even been allegations of parents infecting their children at parties in order to build up immunity, with one youngster being admitted to the hospital as a result.
According to Dr. Patrick Franzoni, the coordinator of Bolzano’s anti-COVID unit, one individual would arrive at the party already infected with COVID and others will purposefully get into close contact with them such as embracing them or sharing beverages.
‘We have received many reports from physicians of individuals who acknowledged to becoming infected on purpose to build antibodies and acquire a green card without immunization.’ There are long-term implications and even young individuals might end up in hospitals.
To get a green card, you must show that you’ve been properly vaccinated or that you’ve recovered from the infection within six months.
Anti-vaxxers consider obtaining COVID-19 on purpose as a method to avoid vaccination, but they are putting themselves at danger. It comes as Austria has announced a series of lockdowns and vaccination restrictions, with Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg recently declaring that immunisations will be required beginning February 1st next year.
Austrians are completely vaccinated against COVID-19 at a rate of around 66 percent, one of the lowest rates in the European Union. “We don’t want a fifth wave. We don’t want a sixth and seventh wave,” he said, while also announcing a further national lockdown to curb the spread of the virus, which will see the closure of restaurants, cafes, bars, theatres, non-essential shops and hairdressers.
