Complaints to be laid against leading heart surgeon after 'problematic' video on Covid-19 vaccines | Health24
A leading heart surgeon has come under fire after a video was published of her making "problematic" statements about Covid-19 vaccines.
The managing director of Netcare’s Hospital Division - Dr Vosloo's practice is at the group's Netcare Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital in Cape Town - expressed "profound disappointment and disbelief" in learning about the video.
Two organisations have confirmed to Health24 that based on Dr Vosloo's comments, they are planning to lodge complaints with the necessary regulatory bodies.
People’s Health Movement of South Africa co-ordinator Peter Benjamin said the statements made by Vosloo are highly problematic.
“They’re passing on negative information that is causing harm. People have died from not taking the vaccine, and those promoting not taking the vaccine are endangering lives,” said Benjamin.
The Movement is planning to lay a charge against Vosloo with the HPCSA, Benjamin said. He added that he was aware of other organisations that would be doing the same.
