Vosloo performed her first heart surgery at the age of 33 and is also the first woman in South Africa to meet the requirements to qualify as a heart surgeon. However, her successes are not what people are talking about.

According to TimesLIVE, a video of Vosloo advising people not to take the Covid-19 vaccine has been circulated on social media. In the video, Vosloo can be seen telling people that the vaccine was much more dangerous than coronavirus itself.

Vosloo further declares that the vaccination's composition is a closely guarded secret, much like Kentucky Fried Chicken herbs, despite this information being public knowledge. Vosloo stated that in addition to death, the vaccine can cause a number of long-term complications such as heart damage, infertility as well as neurological complications.

According to Vrye Weekblad, Vosloo also claimed that the vaccine was actually a gene therapy treatment. The publication approached Dr Marc Mendelson of Groote Schuur Hospital in regard to Vosloo's video and he expressed shock that a medical practitioner would say the things Vosloo said.

When approached by Vrye Weekblad, Vosloo simply said that the video was meant to be private and believed the fuss about what she said would die down soon enough.

The Western Cape has recently been declared the epicentre of the third wave of Covid-19 infections by Health MEC Nomafrench Mbombo with the province recording over 40 000 active cases on Monday, according to IOL.

Dr Marvin Hsiao of Groote Schuur Complex of the National Health Laboratory Service did however note that the epicentre status was decided on the fact the province now has the highest number of active cases and was not decided on scientific backing.

Mendelson told News24 that as it stands no patient of his that has received the Covid-19 jab is in the high care ward, however, he cannot say the same for patients who have been taking Ivermectin.
