Who was Mak Parhar?
Flat Earther and COVID-19 denier Mak Parhar found dead in New Westminster home
A Canadian Covid denier who believed the earth is flat has been found dead, days after he told a Twitch broadcast that he was sick but that it was not Covid because it ‘does not exist’.
Mak Parhar, of New Westminster, British Columbia, told him that he suffered from tiredness, chills and a cough “with a lot of phlegm”, but was not “Con-vid.”
Medical examiners in the Canadian province have not disclosed the cause of Parhar’s death.
Police were called in to assist paramedics at Parhar’s home in Sapperton, New Westminster, but the Covid denier was dead when they arrived, according to Global News.
He claimed to be taking iverectin, an antiparasitic drug,to treat his disease.
Ivermectin is popular among anti-vaccine communities as a treatment for Covid, but health officials in the US and Canada have repeatedly warned people not to take it.
At the time of his death, Parhar was on three counts of violating Canada’s quarantine laws when he was returning from a flat-earth conference in the United States last year.
The city of Delta revoked its business license over false claims that exposure to heat would kill Covid, similar to claims made by former President Donald Trump about how light could eliminate the disease.

Parhar gained a following online for his rigid belief in conspiracy theories surrounding Covid and his belief that the earth is flat.
He had a lawsuit alleging that British Columbia provincial government officials had been involved in burglary, extortion, terrorism, kidnapping and fraud that was dismissed by the British Columbia Supreme Court in April.
The COVID-19 virus could not survive the heat.
In the latest video of him posted on his Facebook page this week, Parhar expressed his hope that he would be able to cross the border in the future to attend a convention of Flat Earth believers in the United States.
Also, he talked about taking a road trip through Canada with his puppy, and mentioned that he has friends and family in Toronto.
In the video, Parhar also railed at others in the movement for not being militant enough.
She seemed quite cheerful, not showing the same degree of symptoms that were present in the October video, although she still periodically coughed.
Parhar has been one of the most radical voices in the so-called “truth movement”. In the past, he has publicly stated that the Holocaust is a hoax, stating in a video that “Hitler was a nice guy, maybe.”
Royal Columbian Hospital
He also visited the Royal Columbian Hospital with a video camera to investigate the validity of COVID-19, prompting a loud reprimand from Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth, who called him an “idiot.”
At the time of his death, Parhar ws on trial in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster on three counts of violating federal quarantine laws.
The outspoken activist was also known to be anti-masking for the purpose of preventing the spread of the virus.
