COVID-denying, anti-vax doctor loses medical license

An outspoken doctor who denies the coronavirus and opposes vaccination has lost his medical license, the Health Ministry says.

Arieh Avni had recently opened a clinic in Bnei Brak, according to Channel 13, where he continued to spread misinformation on the virus and offer forged immunization certificates and exemptions from wearing masks for pay.

Avni recently opined that “anyone who administers a vaccine is, to me, like Mengele,” referring to the notorious Nazi death camp doctor.
