Johann Biacsics was one of the leaders of the anti-vaccine movement against coronavirus on Austria. But the 65-year-old man fell ill with COVID-19 and died on November 11 in Wiener Neustadt, near Vienna.
According to the local press, Johann Biacsics tried to cure himself with enemas based on chlorine dioxide, which is the active ingredient in bleach, but still succumbed to the disease.
According to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, during years Johann Biacsics actively defended and disseminated natural treatments against diseases such as cancer, which he himself developed and experimented with.
The World adds that Biacsics was hospitalized at the beginning of November in a Vienna clinic after suffering a respiratory crisis. There he was given positive for coronavirus but refused treatment.
Against the advice of the doctors, who had judged his state of health as “very serious”, Biacsics applied for discharge, convinced that chlorine dioxide treatment would save him.
When his health deteriorated, according to El Mundo, his family called an ambulance to take him back to the hospital. But it was late and two days later he died.
Two weeks before dying Johann Biacsics led an anti-vaccine demonstration in the streets of Vienna against the measures that the Government was implementing to stop the spread of coronavirus, including mandatory vaccination.
In September he had been interviewed by the Austrian public channel when he demonstrated in front of Parliament: “In intensive care, 67% of patients are vaccinated,” he said at that time. I have “confidential information” about it, he responded to a cross-question from the journalist.
Very popular for his books and blogs on self-medication, on his Facebook page there are many comments from his followers that they denounce that Biacsics was poisoned.
Meanwhile, his family accuses doctors of having killed him. “Officially it will enter the statistics of Covid victims, but we know the truth,” their relatives said.
His son Marcus launched a fundraising campaign to take legal action against the media for reporting “fake news” about his father. According to his son, Biacsics was a champion in the fight against the overwhelming power of pharmaceutical companies.
Chlorine dioxide (Chlordioxid) is touted as a miracle cure against coronavirus among skeptics, anti-vaccines and coronavirus deniers in Austria.
