An anti-vax Czech folk singer has died after she deliberately contracted Covid to obtain a health pass that would have allowed her to visit the sauna and theatre, her family said, AFP reported.
Hana Horka, who was the vocalist for the band Asonance, died at the age of 57, according to her son Jan Rek.
She voluntarily exposed herself to the virus when her husband and son, both vaccinated, caught it before Christmas, Rek told a public radio.
"She decided to continue to live normally with us and preferred to catch the disease than to get vaccinated," he said.
Two days before her death, Horka took to social media to say: "I survived... It was intense."
"So now there will be the theatre, sauna, a concert... and an urgent trip to the sea," she added.
Rek blamed the death on a local anti-vax movement, saying its leaders had convinced his mother against vaccination and thus had "blood on their hands."
"It wasn't just total disinformation, but also views on natural immunity and antibodies acquired through infection," he added.
