He regretted not wanting to be vaccinated

Jorge’s sister, Elena Lis, made public the story of her brother, who defended the denialist theories of the pandemic and refused to get the vaccine, a decision that at the last moment, before entering the hospital, he regretted, as he communicated to his relatives.

The ex-pilot entered the La Fe de València hospital in mid-July, where in the last 45 days he has been in the ICU, in a state of extreme gravity and connected to a very aggressive ECMO machine that oxygenated the blood outside the body. to try to give the lungs time to recover.

Elena stated, in an interview with SER that by making public the story of her brother – who has died at 46 years of age – she also wanted to “give a voice” to people who are suffering from the COVID-19 disease after refusing to receive the vaccine.
