A Louisiana nurse who had railed against vaccinations on her social media has reportedly died from COVID-19 complications.
From The Acadiana Advocate:
Olivia Guidry, a registered nurse in the emergency department, died Saturday after battling the virus for days in the hospital’s intensive care unit. Friends, who had been pleading for prayers for the young woman, expressed grief as the news of her death spread Saturday afternoon.
Guidry was diagnosed with COVID in early July, according to a social media post from her sister, Brittany Smith. She spiked a high fever and had a seizure, Smith wrote. She was placed in a medically induced coma on Thursday.
Louisiana has a vaccination rate of about 36%, below the national vaccination rate of nearly 50%.

All I can say is how many more people have to die because of the idiotic, right-wing conspiracy theorists, their demagogic political leaders, and media disinformation organs? How many more? https://t.co/qbGxnd3kMg
