So what if he is?
In a recent piece the left leaning outlet The Guardian reports that Novak Djokovic is a major shareholder with an 80% stake in a drug company which aims at developing a Covid drug as an alternative to vaccination.
Liberals took to Twitter imploring people to “follow the money”:
Novak Djokovic is the controlling shareholder in Danish biotech firm QuantBioRes, which aims to develop a treatment for #Covid19 that does not involve vaccination. He bought an 80% stake in 2020.
ALWAYS follow the money.https://t.co/oM0HECpXQI

This is an absurd statement from absurd people who wouldn’t understand that there was nuclear radiation after a hydrogen bomb was just dropped on them.
Following the money is a statement that can only be uttered by those awake, not the brainwashed, cult following, Trump deranged liberals who cannot tell the biological difference between a man and a woman.
To this mainstream media junkie who tells us to “follow the money” I tell him to look at the startling knowledge that the C.E.O. of the Reuters news foundation is both a major shareholder of and a board member of the Pfizer corporation.
This is a far greater conflict of interest than a wealthy tennis star who owns a stake a biotech company which may or may not successfully bring an alternative Covid-19 drug to market.
Djokovic’s choice not to be injected with an experimental vaccine is his human right—it is not contingent upon his business arrangements.
The idea that he is not taking the vaccine because he is a major shareholder in this company is likewise absurd and completely speculative, nor does his choice have any bearing on the conversation whatsoever.
The inconvenient truth for these liberals is that this is a virus with a 99.89% survival rate for most individuals, this vaccine does not stop transmission of the virus, and those pushing this vaccine have vested corporate interests.
Those are the facts, so when some virtue signaling liberal has the gaul to say “follow the money”, pay them in like kind by pointing them in the direction of the deep connections between the mainstream media and the company producing the drug.
Here’s more on the story:
Novak #Djokovic has purchased 80% of Danish biotechnology company QuantBioRes, working on developing a medical treatment against COVID-19.
We all pursue purpose, impact and significance differently.

The Guardian writes:
QuantBioRes has about 11 researchers working in Denmark, Australia and Slovenia, according to Loncarevic, who stressed the company was working on a treatment, not a vaccine.
The company’s website says it started developing a “deactivation mechanism” for Covid-19 in July 2020.
Novak Djokovic might not be pro-vaccine, but he's certainly not against experimental Covid-19 treatments.

Washington Examiner adds:
Djokovic missed out on defending his Australian Open title this week after his COVID-19 vaccination exemption was denied by the country. He risks not being able to compete in future tournaments due to current COVID-19 restrictions.
