A Canadian Covid denier who believed the earth is flat has been found dead – days after he told a Twitch stream he was sick but that it wasn’t Covid because ‘it doesn’t exist’.
Mak Parhar, from New Westminster, British Columbia, told his stream that he was suffering from tiredness, chills, and a cough ‘with a lot of phlegm’ but it was not ‘Con-vid’.
Parhar’s cause of death has not been released by coroners in the Canadian province.
Parhar used a Twitch livestream to deny the existence of Covid while he was suffering from Covid-like symptoms
Police were called to help paramedics at Parhar’s home in Sapperton, New Westminster but that the Covid denier was dead when they arrived, according to Global News.
He had claimed to be taking iverectin, an anti-parasite drug, to treat his illness.
Ivermectin is popular among anti-vaxxer communities as an treatment to Covid but health officials in the US and Canada have repeatedly warned people against using.
At the time of his death, Parhar was on trial for three charges of breaking Canada’s quarantine laws when coming back from a flat-earther conference in the US last year.
Parhar died at his apartment days after the stream and had claimed to be feeling better after taking ivermectin to treat his unidentified illness
Parhar (centre) had numerous brushes with the law due to his stance on Canada’s Covid laws
The city of Delta revoked his business license for false claims that exposure to heat would kill Covid, similar to claims made by former president Donald Trump about how light could get rid of the disease.
Parhar gained an online following for his rigid belief in conspiracy theories around Covid and his belief that the earth is flat.
The streamer was already a notorious Covid denier as well as a committed flat-earther who was on trial for breaking quarantine rules to visit a flat earth conference in the US when he died
He had a lawsuit where he alleged that British Columbia province government officials had engaged in trespass, extortion, terrorism, kidnapping and fraud thrown out of the BC Supreme Court in April.
The outspoken activist was also known to be anti-mask for the purposes of preventing the spread of the virus.
