An anti-vax singer has passed away after contracting coronavirus on purpose in order to obtain a health pass to visit a sauna.
Hana Horka, 57, died on Sunday after contracting the Delta variant, according to her son, Jan Rek.
He told iRozhlas.cz public radio that the Czech folk singer, who sings for the band Asonance, was exposed to the virus when her vaccinated kid and husband caught it before Christmas.
”She went for it. She was supposed to stay away from us, but she decided to remain at home with us normally, preferring to go through the disease than to get vaccinated. It is sad my mom trusted strangers more than her own family.”
Rek stated that he and his father had been unwell for three days, and his mother had been sick for five days before she died. Hana also claimed to have survived the virus on social media two days before her death.
Proof of vaccination or recent infection is required to enter bars and restaurants, sports and cultural events, and travel in the Czech Republic.
