High-profile lawyer Prashant Bhushan’s anti-vaxx comments have led to Netizens calling him out incessantly. In one of his most controversial tweets, Bhushan, who has filed a number of PILs over the years, said that there are higher chances of someone dying due to the coronavirus vaccine than due to the disease itself.
“The healthy young have hardly any chance of serious effects or dying due to covid. They have a higher chance of dying due to vaccines. The covid recovered have much better natural immunity, than the vaccine gives them. Vaccines may even compromise their acquired natural immunity,” he tweeted.
Hundreds of Twitter users have demanded that Bhushan’s account be banned. The verified account of Bhushan has been emitting anti-vaxx views for several weeks now. The lawyer-activist has got 2.2 million followers. Author Amit Varma has opined that anyone who writes against the covid vaccines is committing murder.
