Hermit Who Lives in a Cave Came out to Get Vaccinated Against Covid and Does Not Understand Why People Do Not Do It

Some complain about the isolation of a few months caused by the pandemic, but there are those who have lived like this for years, by their own choice, since the current world does not convince them to live in it. Despite the isolation in which they live, it seems that they are more aware that the common good is the most important thing and, as in the case that you will see, they go to get vaccinated against covid-19.

About 20 years ago, Panta Petrovic worked on the black market in Pirot, Serbia, and he was tired that every day there were problems, arguments, and a feeling of not being free, so he took the money he had, donated it to the community to build small bridges to facilitate access and mobility for the inhabitants and then went to a cave at the end of a steep hill.

There is always someone on your way, it is argued with the wife, the neighbors, or the police. Money is a curse that spoils people. Nobody bothers me here.

-Panta Petrovic



He feeds on mushrooms, herbs, vegetables, and fruits that it finds in the surroundings, and fish near the cave. In addition, he goes to the city from time to time and looks for food scraps in containers, not only for him, but to feed the animals that accompany him, since he was a child, he has been a lover of nature, but this has forced him to go to the city more frequently.

In the cave, the wolves began to kill some of his thirty dogs, cats, chickens, and goats, so he had to move them to a cabin he had built on the outskirts of the city, where he also has a refuge in the heights. In this place, he receives donations and support so that the animals have a good quality of life.


Last year, in one of those visits to the town, he realized that there was a pandemic, and at 70 years of age, he is among the highest risk sector, so when he learned that there was a vaccine, he did not hesitate to go and ask him for it. They will apply to be protected because it considers that contagions and deaths can be stopped in this way.


The virus does not choose, it will come here too, to my cave.


Panta says he does not understand those who refuse to be vaccinated, especially since the virus is all over the world and has caused the death of more than four million people on the planet, so he urged "every person to get vaccinated." and commented that if in addition to the doses of the vaccines, a booster can be applied, he will not hesitate to do so.
