Czech Singer, Hana Horka Dies At 57 After ‘Deliberately’ Contracting COVID-19

How Hona Horka Died Of COVID-19

It was gathered that proof of vaccination or recent infection from the virus is required in the Czech Republic to gain entry to many social and cultural venues, including cinemas, bars and cafes.

According to BBC, the deceased son, Jan Rek said his mother, who was a member of one of the oldest Czech folk groups, Asonance, wanted to catch Covid so there would be fewer restrictions on her movement,

Rek said his mother got infected on purpose when he and his father had the virus, so she could get a recovery pass to access certain venues.

According to him, he and his father were both vaccinated after they caught Covid over Christmas, but his mother decided not to stay away from them, preferring instead to expose herself to the virus.

He said, “She should have isolated for a week because we tested positive. But she was with us the whole time.”

Horka, who was unvaccinated after testing positive for the virus, had posted on social media that she was recovering: “Now there will be theatre, sauna, a concert”.

Two days after the social media post, Horka said she was feeling better and dressed to go for a walk. But then her back started hurting, so she went to lie down in her bedroom.

Her son said, “In about 10 minutes it was all over. She choked to death.”

Rek, who confirmed that she died on Sunday morning, stressed that his mother did not believe in some of the more bizarre conspiracy theories about Covid vaccines.

He said, “Her philosophy was that she was more OK with the idea of catching Covid than getting vaccinated. Not that we would get microchipped or anything like that.”

There was no point in trying to discuss the issue with her as it would just get too emotional, he added. Instead, he hoped that by telling his story he could convince others to get vaccinated.

“If you have living examples from real life, it’s more powerful than just graphs and numbers. You can’t really sympathise with numbers,” Rek added.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a popular US pastor died of COVID-19 complications three weeks after defying lockdown to hold church service where he said God is “larger” than the disease.
