“Sometimes you have to go through 'the narrow gate' to understand things as they are", Lorenzo Damiano said in the YouTube video, telling reporters: "Get this vaccine because it will save your life."

After almost dying, Lorenzo Damiano has now 'seen the light,' telling reporters "Get this vaccine because it will save your life." This joker was about as anti-vax as it gets so now of course he's been denounced by the anti-vax movement in Italy and elsewhere as a heretic.

A prominent No Vax leader in northern Italy has had a 'conversion' after being hospitalised for a week in Treviso with severe complications linked to covid-19.

Lorenzo Damiano, a member of the Norimberga 2 anti-vaxxer movement, tested positive for coronavirus after a pilgrimage to Medjugorje at the start of November, and ended up being treated with oxygen in sub-intensive care.

The 56-year-old had in the past dismissed covid as just a flu and blasted the Italian government's Green Pass regulations and its "health dictatorship" coronavirus restrictions.

However he 'saw the light' during his time in hospital, posting a video online in which he says he now "has another view of this world", adding: "I will get the vaccine as soon as I can."
