Anti-vax Czech folk singer dies after deliberately catching Covid

An anti-vax Czech folk singer has died after deliberately catching Covid to obtain a health pass to allow her to visit the sauna and theatre.

Hana Horka, the vocalist for the band Asonance, died on Sunday after contracting the Delta variant 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 public radio iRozhlas.cz.

Proof of vaccination or a recent infection is required to access cultural and sports facilities as well as for travel and for visiting bars and restaurants in the EU member state, which is facing a soaring Covid count.

Jan said: 'She decided to continue to live normally with us and preferred to catch the disease than to get vaccinated.'

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.

Horka went for a walk outside but when she returned she started to complain about back pain and soon after, died choking in her bed, her son said.

Rek blamed the death on a local anti-vax movement, saying its leaders had brainwashed his mother against vaccination and had 'blood on their hands'.

'I know exactly who influenced her... It makes me sad that she believed strangers more than her proper family,' Rek said.

'It wasn't just total disinformation but also views on natural immunity and antibodies acquired through infection,' he added.

The country of 10.7 million people announced more than 20,000 new Covid infections on Tuesday.

I’d ask if I could have his things, but he was a Czech folk singer.

Sure, Jan. None of the responsibility or blame was on her for being so utterly stupid? SMH.

Stupidity is terminal.

She should have died just for that hat she wore in the OP's pic.

What a moron. I'd be so embarrassed if that was how my Mother died.

Covid is no joking matter. I was double vaxxed and still got hospital sick. These people need to listen to the science instead of their dumb Facebook friends
