A woman target of a QAnon-led harassment campaign against a Chicago hospital after QAnon followers requested that her COVID-19 diagnosis be treated with ivermectin has died.

Newsweek said Veronica Wolski, a prominent QAnon supporter known for hanging posters from a bridge in Chicago, died in the early hours of Monday morning after spending weeks in the hospital with COVID-19.

Lin Wood, a conspiracy theorist and one of QAnon’s most powerful followers, announced her death on Telegram. Wood earlier encouraged his 814,000 Telegram followers to call the Amita Health Resurrection Medical Center and demand that Wolski be treated with ivermectin rather than FDA-approved medicines or vaccinations.

Following news of Wolski’s death, tributes were given to her on other QAnon telegram groups and on Twitter. Just hours before her death, Wood uploaded a video on YouTube. He requested that she be freed from the hospital, saying that the person on the other end of the telephone would be charged with murder if she did not.

QAnons Accuses Hospital Of “Medical Murdering” Wolski

Wood also accused the hospital of “medical murdering” Wolski by refusing to treat her COVID-19 with ivermectin. Late Sunday night, the QAnon icon talked with Wolski’s attorney. Amita Resurrection Hospital and its medical professionals would be “complicit in murder” if they did not promptly release Veronica to get the medical care she needed needs, he said.

Wood posted the hospital’s phone number once again, urging his millions of followers to call and “let his hospital hear your voices NOW.”

Sidney Powell, who, along with Wood, attempted to claim the 2020 election was rigged with the widely dismissed “kraken” lawsuits. Former national security adviser Michael Flynn were among the prominent QAnon supporters. They encouraged their followers to harass hospital staff into treating Wolski with ivermectin.

While Wolski was fighting the virus, which she got after boasting for never wearing masks or taking the vaccine, Wood and other prominent QAnon figures urged their followers to call the hospital and insist that Wolski be treated with ivermectin, an anti-parasitic medicine used in both humans and livestock but not for COVID.

Hospital Dismisses QAnon’s Claim

Olga Solares, the spokeswoman for Amita Health Resurrection Medical Center, confirmed to Newsweek that Wolski died of COVID-19. However, the spokesperson refused to give more details.

Solares acknowledged she was aware of the QAnon supporters’ campaign in a prior statement to the Chicago Sun-Times without explicitly addressing it.

“At AMITA Health, our first priority is the health and safety of our patients. Our physicians and clinicians follow the full guidance of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control in the treatment of COVID-19,” Solares said.
