A vocal opponent of vaccines against the coronavirus died Monday, days after he was hospitalized in serious condition with COVID-19.

Hai Shoulian, 57, remained defiantly opposed to vaccines until his death, urging fellow anti-vaxxers “to continue fighting” in a Facebook post Saturday that included a photo of him hooked up to an oxygen concentrator.

“The situation is most critical. I’m incapable of speaking or responding to people. I have no oxygen and am unable to stabilize,” he wrote.

Shoulian said he believed that, “with God’s help,” he would recover in two-three weeks and railed at the government’s Green Pass system, which limits entry to many venues and events to those who are vaccinated, recovered from COVID, or who present a negative coronavirus test result.

“It has nothing to do with the coronavirus. It has nothing to do with vaccines. It has to do with coercion,” he said.

In a video last week, Shoulian claimed police tried to poison him after he was arrested during a recent protest against the Green Pass.

“I’m telling you, this is an attempt to wipe me out and if something happens to me know that’s exactly what happened,” he said.
