A folk singer from the Czech Republic has died after deliberately catching Covid, her son has told the BBC.
Hana Horka, 57, was unvaccinated and had posted on social media that she was recovering after testing positive, but died two days later.
Her son, Jan Rek, said she got infected on purpose when he and his father had the virus, so she could get a recovery pass to access certain venues.
The Czech Republic reported a record number of cases on Wednesday.
Mr Rek and his father both caught Covid over Christmas, despite being fully vaccinated. But he said his mother had decided not to stay away from them, preferring instead to expose herself to the virus.
"She should have isolated for a week because we tested positive. But she was with us the whole time," he said.
Proof of vaccination or recent infection from the virus is required in the Czech Republic to gain entry to many social and cultural venues, including cinemas, bars and cafes.

His mother was a member of one of the oldest Czech folk groups, Asonance. She had wanted to catch Covid so there would be fewer restrictions on her movement, Mr Rek explained.




She did her own research.

I keep hearing that "natural immunity" is best. I guess there must be something worse than death.

Healthcare workers getting €1,000 one off payment. Tax free. Well deserved
Makes much better sense for them than the extra bank holiday which they could be working for.
A grand is decent, you could get a fine holiday etc from that
Wouldnt begrudge them. Some will.. well deserved.
Now watch the teachers pile in looking for their grand..

Whilst giving them that money is certainly the right thing to do.

I would never describe anyone doing their job as a hero

You are diluting the meaning of that word.
I most certainly disagree.

They were working in the middle of ground zero with a highly contagious new disease.
They had to deal with sick and dying patients while masked up for hours on end.
Many got sick themselves or worse.
And they were short staffed and overworked.
They helped get the jabs into peoples arms.

And then they had to deal with muppets getting their own medical advice and disinformation off Facebook and dismissing everything.
