Harassed by antivax, a doctor ends her life in Austria

Threatened for months by anti-vaccine activists, a well-known Austrian doctor ended her life at the end of the week.

The body of Lisa-Maria Kellermayr was discovered Friday in her medical practice in the province of Upper Austria.

According to several Austrian media, the woman left a letter explaining the reasons for her suicide.

Ms. Kellermayr had risen to prominence during the COVID-19 pandemic when she championed vaccination on various television sets.

His recommendations have earned him harassment by hordes of antivax on social networks, but also physically.

Faced with constant intimidation, the doctor was forced to close her consulting room.

She is also said to have gone bankrupt after having to spend thousands of euros to ensure her safety.

The announcement of the death of Lisa-Maria Kellermayr sparked a wave of reactions across the country.

Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen condemned the facts on Twitter.

“Let us put an end to these alarmist remarks and these attempts at intimidation. Hate and intolerance have no place in Austria,” he wrote.
