An Australian family doctor who got death threats from anti-vaxxers during the pandemic after two children experienced adverse reactions to the Covid shot has died suddenly.
Hong Kong-born Doctor Wilson Chin, who studied medicine in Britain for 14 years and ran an under-12 Covid vaccination clinic on the Gold Coast, died just days before Christmas, Daily Mail reported.
The death of Dr. Chin was confirmed by Pacific Pines MedCentres Director Deon Raju.
In an interview with the Gold Coast Bulletin, he stated that medical issues and ‘not mental health related’ was the cause of death.

Earlier this year, Dr. Chin made headlines after he broke down in tears in a video, revealing he had received death threats from anti-vaxxers following a rumor that two girls who fainted after treatment at Pacific Pines MedCentres had actually died.
According to Dr. Chin, it was just a normal occurrence of fainting that had nothing to do with the vaccine.

More from Euro Weekly News:
The Hong Kong-born doctor in an earlier interview with local channels broke down in tears while describing the abuse he received shortly after the rumours spread. The rumour claimed that two girls at his clinic on the Gold coast collapsed and began to scream and then later died. Dr Chin had then, during an interview with a local news channel, stated that the case was unrelated to the vaccine and it was a simple fainting episode.
But after this episode, the centre became a major target of abuse, which forced them to immediately halt the vaccine program for children under 12. Chin eventually made a statement on the local news channel that said, “The death threats and threats from those out there are not worth us jeopardizing the safety of our staff”.
According to a statement by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, Dr Chin received abuse and threats that claimed the vaccine centre was ´poisoning kids´ and also that the doctor was a kid killer.
