Billionaire entrepreneur Johann Rupert managed to get the vaccine shortly after the vaccination was launched in the canton of Thurgau. He flew to Switzerland privately with his private jet.
Johann Rupert had vaccinated against the corona virus in the canton of Thurgau.
This is despite the fact that the richest man in South Africa is not yet 75 years old.
Vaccination was possible only because the Hirslanden Group is indirectly owned by it.
First he tried a clinic in Lucerne, then he found what he was looking for in the canton of Thurgau: Johann Rupert, a South African majority owner of the luxury empire Richemont and a very wealthy entrepreneur, wanted to get the corona vaccine. So South Africa’s richest man (8 billion dollars worth) got on his private jet and went to Switzerland as “Tagesanzeiger” wrote. Shortly after vaccination officially started on 12 January in Thurgau, he finally managed to get the vaccine. This is despite not being included in the over 75-year-old group that was primarily vaccinated in Switzerland at age 70.
According to the report, this preferential treatment was only possible because it indirectly awarded the Hirslanden Group the tender to install and apply Covid vaccines in Thurgau. The hospital group runs a vaccination center in Frauenfeld, where Rupert is also receiving treatment.
The Hirslanden Group has confirmed Rupert’s vaccination against “Tagesanzeiger”. Usually, the names of the people who have had the vaccine are not given due to patient privacy. “For reasons of transparency, Mr. Rupert, who belongs to the at-risk patients category, has authorized us to approve his vaccine as part of the test vaccine,” said a spokesperson.
As a motivation for preferential treatment, Rupert says: “Setting an example for all employees in my company is important to me. My message is this: We will only succeed in getting out of this crisis through vaccination. “
