Nazi death threat to Belgian COVID-19 doctor

This May 2020 video says about itself:

Brazil’s Bolsonaro: Turning COVID-19 denial into media spectacle

On The Listening Post this week: Brazil’s President Bolsonaro and COVID-19 misinformation.

Worldwide, extreme rightists claim that COVID-19 is supposedly ‘just a flu’, that it is a ‘hoax’ by ‘the Jews’ or by green lizards from Mars, that people should not spatially distance to stop spreading the disease, that there should be no vaccination against the coronavirus, etc.

Some coronavirus denialists threaten the lives of doctors fighting the pandemic, like Dr Siouxsie Wiles in New Zealand or Dr Marc Van Ranst in Belgium.

This tweet by Belgian anti-COVID-19 virologist Marc Van Ranst says, translated:

In Mechelen railway station, a bloke went to me because he was going to ‘kill me because I was a leftist rat‘. He went away while doing Heil Hitler salutes. Poor guy.

‘Leftist rats’ (linkse ratten) is the favourite insult for non-nazis by Flemish extreme right party Vlaams Belang.
