The Italian wire service ANSA reports:
A diehard Italian anti-vaxxer who became a popular radio personality died of COVID at the age of 61 on Monday night, sources said Tuesday. Maurizio Buratti, better known as “Mauro from Mantua” died in a Verona hospital where he had been receiving treatment for some weeks.
Despite being in a critical condition, he never disavowed his COVID denialist views.
Buratti consistently denied the existence of the coronavirus and once boasted he had gone into a Mantua supermarket despite being reported as having it. He said he had been happy to play the ‘plague-spreader’, with a 38 degree fever and his mask down.
