Conservative pastor and talk show host, Rick Wiles was reportedly hospitalized and treated for COVID-19 after condemning the vaccines that fight the disease, baselessly claiming they’re being used to carry out a “global genocide.”
Last Sunday, the antivaxxer and founder of the conspiracy-promoting TruNews website alongside his wife Susan were admitted to the emergency room with acute cases of covid.
Miles became infected a month after proclaiming to his followers he will not get vaccinated against COVID-19 and would survive the “global genocide.”
“I am not going to be vaccinated,” he said. “I’m going to be one of the survivors. I’m going to survive the genocide.
He added, “You and I are witnessing the first global mass murder and it’s being led by Satan’s team on the planet. You must survive it. Do not be vaccinated.”
Then this week, TruNews, in a post to its official Gab account, noted that there was a COVID-19 outbreak at Wiles’ church and asked for prayers.
“Flowing Streams is experiencing a sudden cluster of flu and Covid among some employees and their relatives. Rick Wiles made the decision tonight to close the offices and studios until a TBA date next week,” the Gab post explained. “Our team needs to tend to sick family members. Please pray for your TruNews team.”
On Tuesday, Wiles announced on Twitter that he has been released from hospital where he received the necessary medical care.
