One of the first people to die of Omicron infection in the United Kingdom was a “vaccine conspiracy theorist.”

On Monday, Boris Johnson revealed the UK's first Omicron fatality. In cases when the viral strain was not identified, the variation may have killed more people.

No specifics about the patient who died earlier this week have been disclosed, but a man claiming to be his stepson JOHN SAYS THE VICTIM WAS UNVACC

John contacted LBC to encourage vaccine sceptics to get vaccinated.
He told Nick Ferrari that stepfather was in his early 70s and in good condition when he got sick in early December.

A fit, healthy man who didn't smoke or drink in over 30 years, John said.

His infection risk was low, John added, because he ‘never went out'.
‘He was a recluse, he never went out, he had his shopping carried to him,' the caller explained.

‘He just went to the rubbish and the postbox outside his block.'

Despite these positives, the infection deteriorated and he was admitted to a Northampton hospital last week.

John claims his sister, the only one who knew their stepfather, blames the tragedy on his failure to get vaccinated.

‘[My sister] had a disagreement with [my stepdad] about getting vaccinated towards the end of October.

He assumed it was a plot. Although he was a smart man, there is a lot of misinformation floating around online and in the media about him.
His stepdaughter is claimed to be ‘gutted' and his family wants their suffering to serve as a warning.

‘He would have lived if he had been vaccinated,' John added. He may be sick, but he is here.

The vaccine and booster should protect you. Those who don't have it should be scared today.'

Last night, England's chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, declared the country was fighting two epidemics: Delta and Omicron.

Despite the high number of cases, Omicron is not regarded to be more harmful than Delta for those who get it, while its high transmissibility may provide issues for the health care.
