A KENYAN doctor who became a high-profile anti-vaccine campaigner has died after contracting Covid-19, it was confirmed today.
Dr Stephen Karanja died on Thursday in the high-dependency unit of a private hospital in the capital Nairobi.
He was a vocal conspiracy theorist, helping to spread myths involving Microsoft founder Bill Gates and the coronavirus being part of a bid to cull the world’s population.
Dr Karanja insisted that Kenyans did not need to be vaccinated against the disease. He said that people could be cured through steam inhalation and a mixture of drugs and minerals including the antimalarial hydroxychloroquine and zinc.
He was the chairman of Kenya’s Catholic Doctors Association, which described him “as a true medical soldier.”
Despite his intervention, more than 800,000 Kenyans have been vaccinated against Covid-19.
There have been nearly 160,000 cases of coronavirus recorded in the east African nation and 2,707 deaths, although critics believe that the true figures may be much higher.
