Private hospital group, Netcare, has distanced itself from anti-vaccination remarks made by one of its leading heart surgeons, Dr Susan Vosloo.
In a video on BitChute, which has been viewed hundreds of times, Vosloo advises people against being vaccinated.
She claimed that the risk of the vaccine was worse than the risk of the coronavirus.
“The proposition of the vaccine is largely confidential like a trade secret, like the special seasoning at Kentucky Fried Chicken,” Vosloo said.
Netcare’s Hospital Division, Jacques du Plessis said they were “profoundly disappointed” by her comments.
“The sentiments as expressed in the contents of the video are in complete contradiction to the unrelenting endeavours of Netcare, our clinical colleagues, healthcare workers and others to try and curb the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
Du Plessis added that the video further contradicted the views and endeavours of the National Health Department and global institutions.
“Given the grave implications of the comments made by Dr Vosloo and the potential deleterious impact on both national and global efforts to curb COVID-19, Netcare completely dissociates itself from Dr Vosloo’s anti-vaccination message,” he said.
“Nevertheless, we have full regard for the fact that as a medical professional, Dr Vosloo is an independent practitioner and that as an individual she is fully entitled to her own views.
“To date, Netcare has vaccinated more than 110 000 people including 33 000 healthcare workers,” du Plessis said
Netcare has three active vaccination sites, each of which are capable of delivering 5 000 vaccine doses per day.
Experts have also slammed Vosloo’s utterances about the COVID-19 vaccines. According to News4, two organisations have confirmed that they plan to lodge complaints with the necessary regulatory bodies over Vosloo’s comments.
Vosloo made history as the country’s first female heart surgeon who did her first transplant at the age of 33.
