Anti-vax extremist may face charges over death of Covid-19 patient Joe McCarron

Criminal charges are being recommended by Gardaí against anti-vax extremist Antonio Mureddu over the death of Covid-19 patient Joe McCarron back in September.

The incident was filmed by Mureddu who convinces McCarron to leave Letterkenny University Hospital in Donegal despite opposing advice from hospital staff.


After the 67-year-old was discharged, he was returned to the hospital after falling gravely ill but subsequently died upon return.

According to the Sunday Independent, it’s understood that Gardaí have nearly completed their investigation and are recommending that Mureddu be charged in connection to the incident.

A well-placed source stated, “Among what’s being examined is whether this patient was forced or coerced to leave hospital”.


As well as this, charges of trespass and whether hospital staff were threatened is also being considered.
