Dr. Risa Hoshino has spent the past two years pretending to be a frontline COVID doctor overwhelmed by physical exertion and the emotional drain of pouring herself into her work while faced with an allegedly apathetic public.
And of course she’s posted the usual tweets trying to make people feel guilty for refusing to live like vegetables, and urging them to follow the stupid protocols that didn’t accomplish a thing apart from wrecking society and millions of lives.
Well, it turns out she’s a fake.
I had noticed a number of people on Twitter suggesting that something seemed fishy about her, but there was no ironclad proof.
Now the New York Post is reporting that Hoshino appears in fact to be a school pediatrician working a comfortable 9-to-5 job, not a frontline doctor working 12-hour days in scrubs.
Since Hoshino’s cover began to be blown, most of her social media accounts and content started being deleted or made private.

The story also made news in the UK, in the Daily Mail.
