A prominent 52-year-old cardiologist from New Brunswick died suddenly in his sleep just two weeks after receiving his third Covid vaccine.
During the summer, Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial has attacked “selfish” people who choose not to take the Covid vaccine.
“For those who don’t get the shot for selfish reasons – whatever – I won’t cry at their funeral,” Dr. Lutchmedial said in a July 2021 tweet.
The doctor died unexpectedly on November 8, just two weeks after receiving his third injection on October 24.
Sohrab received his third Covid vaccine on October 24 via a Facebook post.
According to Canadian media, Dr. Lutchmedial’s friends, family and colleagues are shocked by his sudden death.
