France’s most famous twins, the Bogdanoffs, have died within 6 days of each other at the age of 72 from covid-19, the brothers’ lawyer told French broadcaster RTL. According to the French newspaper Le Monde, both Grichka and Igor were admitted to the intensive care unit of the Georges-Pompidou hospital in Paris on December 15, after contracting covid-19.
Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff, France’s most famous twins, die from covid-19 and unvaccinated within six days of each other
Neither of them had been vaccinated against the disease, something to which the lawyer of both brothers, Edouard de Lamaze, did not want to answer, alleging that he is “a lawyer, not a doctor”, although in an interview with the RTL radio station he did confirm that the death was caused by the coronavirus.
On December 15, the twins were admitted to the Georges Pompidou hospital in Paris. Both remained hospitalized for 2 weeks until, on the 28th, Grichka was the first to die after falling into a coma.
Igor survived until the 3rd and was able to witness the new year, but died, as did his twin, from a severe case of coronavirus.
Doctors of physics and mathematics, writers, television presenters, descendants of the Austrian aristocracy, popular science figures for the general public and subjects of controversy for researchers, in more than forty years of public life, Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff accumulated great success.
The Bogdanoffs, popular among the French elite, were friends of numerous personalities, such as Luc Ferry, former Minister of Education, who spoke out against the brothers’ idea of non-vaccination: “Grichka and Igor were not anti-vaccine for the population, but they were anti-vaccine for themselves”.
Ferry clarified that the twins were regular sportsmen, and believed that in case of healthy people, “the vaccine was more dangerous” than the virus itself.
In France they were known for being the hosts of the first and most mediatic science fiction-themed program in the Gallic country, which would appear on the French television grid in the late 1970s.
Temps X, as the program was called, had a cultural, scientific and esoteric theme, which gained popularity over the years.
