Downing Street has condemned an anti-vaxxer who targeted Jonathan Van-Tam and accused him of ‘genocide’ and ‘lying to the British people’.

Footage shows England’s deputy chief medical officer being accosted by Geza Tarjanyi who appears to suggest he poisoned Matt Hancock when he vaccinated the health secretary in April.

Mr Tarjanyi – who has become well-known online for opposing 5G mobile networks and face masks – targeted Prof Van-Tam as he walked into the Ministry of Defence building in Westminster on Tuesday.

As he follows Prof Van-Tam, Lancashire-based family entertainer Mr Tarjanyi asks: ‘What was really in that needle that you put into Matt Hancock?

‘Why are you continually lying to the British people? Why are you smiling? This country is supposed to be in the worst pandemic of all time.

‘It is,’ replies Prof Van-Tam calmly.

‘And you keep lying to the people.’

Referencing an incident when he targeted Chris Whitty in the street three weeks ago, Mr Tarjanyi continues: ‘Do you think you’re brave enough to speak to me, and explain to the British people why you’re lying to them?

‘Why you’ve crushed their economy, lies after lies. Why have you prohibited hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin? Is this true or not? Why of all the people in the NHS were you administering the vaccine to Matt Hancock?’

As Prof Van-Tam walks into the Government building, Mr Tarjanyi calls after him: ‘You see, you can run, but you can’t hide, Van Tam. 

‘The British people are going to get justice for what you’ve done to this country. All of you liars will be going to prison, I guarantee it. Every single one of you, a traitor to the country. A genocide.’

Downing Street condemned the abuse saying such behaviour is ‘never acceptable’.

The prime minister’s official spokesman said: ‘People working to fight the pandemic and save lives, which is what Professor Van-Tam is doing every single day, should never face that kind of appalling behaviour for doing their job.

‘The right to free speech is fundamental to our democracy, but violence, threats or intimidation is absolutely never acceptable.’

The incident comes weeks after Mr Tarjanyi targeted and followed Chris Whitty in a street in Oxford and uploaded footage of the incident online.

He accused the chief medical officer of lying to the public over the pandemic, before Prof Whitty asked officers in a nearby police van to intervene.

Mr Tarjanyi, a family DJ from Leyland in Lancashire, has travelled across the UK over the past year to attend anti-lockdown protests and held his own in Durham last October.
