</div>A man commented on the video in French while alarmed: "We really have to arrest this person, because it gives a bad image for our country. We are welcomed here with open arms, and this is what is happening. We denounce this Machiavellian, Satanist practice that takes place in our hospitals ".
Where did this video come from? ?
The video, of poor quality, and graphically altered by the presence of the text at the top of the image, does not allow an easy search via the traditional reverse image search tools. On the other hand, it is possible to find the trace of it by taking a screenshot of the video, and by refocusing the image on the patient’s bed.
Thanks to the Yandex search engine, we find two results on British media, The Sun and the Daily Mail.
