A vocal anti-vaxxer who claimed the coronavirus vaccine is killing people has died after contracting Covid.
Cirsten Weldon used her online platform to tell the world that only “idiots” would die from the deadly virus.
The American has become the latest jab opponent to be killed by the disease, which has already claimed the lives of more than five million people worldwide.
The promoter of QAnon urged both her supporters and the strangers she passed on the streets not to get vaccinated and to ignore government restrictions.
She had amassed tens of thousands of followers on her pro-Trump right-wing social media.
Ms Weldon claimed Dr Anthony Fauci “must be hanging from a rope” as she recorded herself yelling at people who were lining up to receive their boosters.
She warned on a video: “Vaccines kill, don’t understand!
Another showed her saying, “This is how gullible these idiots are. They all get vaccinated!
She died Thursday at a hospital in Camarillo, Calif., The state reports.
Her last social media post was a picture of herself in a hospital bed with an oxygen mask on.

In the post, she claimed she had ‘bacterial pneumonia’ – but doctors confirmed yesterday that she caught Covid. His death was announced on Friday.
Last year, Ms Weldon’s savage conspiracy theories included allegations that China paid President Joe Biden big bucks to test “weather weapons” in Texas.
In May, she appeared on a podcast claiming that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton passed away in 2020.
She is not the only high profile anti-vaxxer to die for Covid in the past few days.
Doug Kazum, 61, died Monday after a 10-day battle after allegedly catching him during the ReAwaken America Tour in Texas.
The state has seen an increase in the number of cases and deaths due to the spread of the Omicron variant late last year.
Texas reported 35,453 new cases on Thursday, officials said.
The ReAwaken America tour brought in many far-right activists, including former Trump adviser Michael Flynn, who spoke at the event.
