Leading British anti-vaxxer hospitalised with covid

John O'Looney has quickly become the anti-vaxxer Kim Kardashian to Piers Corbyn's Kanye West

After refusing the vaccine and branding covid-19 "just a common cold", a British anti-vaxxer has been hospitalised with a broken ankle- just joking, it's covid.

John O'Looney was admitted to a hospital ICU unit after repeatedly slamming the pandemic and the vaccine.

However the 53-year-old funeral director was forced to backtrack on his previous statements about the severity of the virus once he had himself contracted it.

In a statement to his followers posted on December 31, the Milton Keynes resident said: "I was initially sceptical about covid but I can confirm its validity, and it is very nasty."

While medical professionals across the globe are undoubtedly sighing with relief now that O'Looney has confirmed that covid is real - the man himself is still not sold on the vaccine.

He added: "So let us make no mistake there is an enemy to face but does it require endless bouts of injections after injections after injections?"

The anti-vaxxer said doctors offered him a drug currently being trialled, but naturally, O'Looney "declined and stuck to my guns."

Then, despite the advice from medical professionals, he discharged himself from the hospital.

O'Looney said: "I feel very fortunate to have escaped hospital (I never dreamed I would have lived to say that) with the help of family and friends.

"The sinister whispering, the secrecy and the guilty looks amongst certain members of staff spoke volumes to me.

"It was honestly very chilling and traumatising just seeing how it has changed - especially when I asked to leave."

Later, in his 600-word announcement, the anti-vaxx influencer even went so far as to discourage people from going to the hospital.
