Family doctor bombarded by death threats from anti-vaxxers during pandemic dies suddenly
A family doctor who received death threats from anti-vaxxers during the pandemic has died suddenly.
Dr Wilson Chin, who was described as ‘gentle and kind’, had previously broken down in tears as he described the abuse he received while running a Covid vaccination clinic on Australia ‘s Gold Coast.
The British-trained Hong Kong-born doctor, who emigrated to Australia in 2018, passed away shortly before Christmas.
Dr Chin was popular with patients and colleagues at the Pacific Pines MedCentres, and known in his local community for walking his dog Splash.
He made headlines in January this year when he tried to warn people of a false rumour being spread on social media that claimed two girls had fainted and died after treatment at Pacific Pines MedCentres. It was claimed that both girls collapsed and began screaming – but Dr Chin confirmed to 9News at the time that it was simply ‘a fainting episode’ unrelated to the vaccine.
