She had been battling the coronavirus for weeks while militants in a movement called the “QAnon” made calls and threats to the hospital.

QAnon is a far-right conspiracy theory movement, created in 2017. According to its adherents, there is a secret cabal, made up of Satan worshipers, pedophiles and cannibals, who runs a global child sex trafficking network and has been conspiring against former President Donald Trump during his term.

Supporters of the movement claim that Veronica was “murdered by the hospital” for receiving the scientifically tested and approved treatment against the coronavirus.
