Pieter Loridon is against vaccination.
But this entrepreneur needs to travel for professional reasons.
This former professional basketball player, now 49, has therefore decided to voluntarily contract Covid-19.
No, I will not join the vaccination society,
justified this former Belgian basketball international on social networks
I have to go abroad for business, and a healthy person can't do that without a vaccine either.
I therefore opt for a natural booster of my immune system which works perfectly on the variants
The quarantine therefore did everything to contract the virus by “
injecting other saliva into the nose
”, secretions obviously coming from positive people.
But before that, Pieter Loridon had done several polls on his Instagram and Twitter accounts asking if voluntarily injecting Covid-19 was a good idea.
Question for a friend.
BOOST your natural immunity (after contamination of the original strain) by knowingly infecting yourself with the bland variant of omicron.
Is this an option for healthy people (without injection/immune system control) under 50?
» 70% of the participants responded positively to the question.
Belgium gets involved
Invited to Belgian television, virologist Marc Van Ranst attacked Pieter Loridon, before chatting with the former basketball player on Twitter.
You have a ton of subscribers, Pieter.
It is completely irresponsible to deliberately infect yourself, and promote it to your followers, just to get a certificate of cure.
A message that obviously did not scare Pieter Loridon, who wishes to meet this doctor for "
a very open discussion
Wouter Bake, the Flemish Minister of Health also reacted to this controversy via his social networks.
Our excellent healthcare will also take care of you if you end up in hospital.
It is an incredible lack of respect for the many carers who have been giving their best for two years in extremely difficult circumstances.
