Man Says Anti-Vaxxer Mum Who Compared NHS Workers To Nazis Is 'Beyond Help'

The son of an anti-vaxxer who compared NHS workers to Nazi war criminals has said his mum is 'beyond help'.

Former nurse Kate Shemirani has been widely condemned after she called on supporters to send her the details of doctors and nurses who had worked to save lives during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking at a rally in Trafalgar Square, London, on Saturday (24 July), she said: "At the Nuremberg Trials, the doctors and nurses stood trial and they hung."


Her son Sebastian has since said his conspiracy theorist mum has gone beyond the point of return.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "My mum is definitely beyond help.

"The problem is that she's so arrogant in her world view and really, truly believes that she is a conduit for the truth on a spiritual level, not just a scientific level.

"It's impossible to talk to somebody when they've got that level of God complex."


Asked what should happen to her, he said: "Be prosecuted under existing laws, or if there aren't existing laws in place that say that what she is doing is illegal then we should be having a national conversation about what laws we should be bringing in and drafting up legislation for that.

"Because it's only a matter of time before... somebody acts on the bad advice that she's giving the country."

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said he had flagged Shemirani's comments with police.

He tweeted: "This is utterly appalling, and I have raised it directly with the Met Police.

"Our NHS staff are the heroes of this pandemic and Londoners from across this city roundly reject this hate."

The Metropolitan Police said officers are working to establish whether any crimes have been committed.

A spokesperson said: "We are aware of video circulating online showing a speech that occurred during a rally in Trafalgar Square on Saturday July 24.

"Officers are carrying out inquiries to establish whether any offences have been committed. No arrests have been made."
