This will be... hard reading, but it certainly illustrates just how far some people are prepared to go to deny Covid, even to the length of losing their lives. After the introduction, there is no input from the writer of the article. What you read - if you can read it - is the live action accounts of a woman watching first her father and then her brother die due to ignorance, stupidity, naivete and misinformation, or indeed, disinformation. This is in the people's own words, and you will see the final words and death gasps, as it were, of people dying. It is not easy to read, so be warned.

Covid party kills one man and leaves several others in intensive care after Italians get together to spread coronavirus so they can acquire a 'green pass' without being vaccinated

^ In other news, lemmings are jumping off cliffs in unprecedented numbers in hopes of getting their much-sought-after swimming certificates...

HaHa! That's a good point about the photo, TH. I didn't notice that. Yeah, Britain is quite well vaccinated but as you say, they seem to have given up bothering about other precautions.

Yes, it makes for difficult reading. What struck me most about the people involved were two things:-
i) the certainty of their conviction that covid is a plot and that hospitals are in on it for their own malign purposes
ii) the tragic flailing around for alternative remedies when they have rejected mainstream science and are relying on "What I saw on the internet" as the guy coughs to death. So grim to see that descent spelled out in tweets.

And covid? Does it care if it gets a foothold because you are complacent, or because you are an anti-vax nut? (Rhetorical question because I think we all know the answer)

I'm thinking it would've been a good idea to give South Africa (along with India) that TRIPS waiver
when they asked the World Trade Organization for it 14 months ago so they could manufacture
their own vaccines instead of caving in to Big Pharma. The WHO is meeting next week.
I wonder if it'll be brought up yet again (Biden first called for the waivers back in May).

I doubt the EU would ever agree to signing off their IP to the global south. Africa etc for them is where you extract resources from, not share anything with. Not part of the profit model etc.
