Anti vax doc held after patient dies after mushroom cure

Man charged with manslaughter over 'alternative' treatment

(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 24 - An Italian anti-vax doctor in Teramo in Abruzzo was arrested Monday on suspicion of criminal negligence after a patient of his died in Campania after being prescribed 'alternative' treatment including tinctures of mushrooms, local sources said.
    The doctor, Roberto Petrella, is well-known for his anti-vax militancy.
    A gynecologist, he treated his patient over the phone for an as-yet undisclosed malady comprising multiple pathologies but perhaps not COVID-19.
    Petrella, who has been served with a conditional ban from the Italian guild of gynecologists, has been charged with manslaughter. (ANSA).
