An article detailing an Alabama doctor’s claim that young, healthy unvaccinated coronavirus patients are dying saying that they refused the vaccine because they thought COVID was a "hoax" has gone viral, with some claiming it appears to be far-fetched. .

"I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections," Dr.

Brytney Cobia wrote in a Sunday Facebook post.

I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late." Cobia said loved ones of the deceased refused to get the vaccine citing COVID as being a "hoax," or due to politics. .

"I made a personal decision to get the vaccine, but I can also say that Alabama story about the doctor is so far-fetched and dramatic that it reads as fiction.

AL.com reported on the Facebook post in an article Wednesday, titled "‘I’m sorry, but it’s too late’: Alabama doctor on treating unvaccinated, dying COVID patients," which has spread like wildfire on social media. 

Alabama has a total of 11,443 deaths from COVID since the pandemic began in March 2020. 

The article comes as cases of the virus tick up in the state, and highlights that Alabama "is last in the nation in vaccination rate," while noting that 96% of Alabamians who have died of COVID were not fully vaccinated. 

"Back in 2020 and early 2021, when the vaccine wasn’t available, it was just tragedy after tragedy after tragedy," Cobia is quoted in the article

No mask mandates are in place at all, 70% of Alabama is unvaccinated
