Anti-masker Caleb Wallace, 30, who organized Freedom Rally against Covid vaccines is fighting for his life with virus

The 30-year-old has been unconscious and heavily sedated since August 8, and doctors have reportedly told his heartbroken family his chances of recovery are “slim to none.”
But just weeks before catching Covid, Wallace had helped organize a rally against the “government being in control of our lives,” branded “The Freedom Rally”.
The dad-of-three demanded an “open Texas” and publicly opposed masks and vaccines.
In an open letter to the San Angelo Independent School District in April, Wallace wrongly claimed there was “so little evidence that masks worked for anyone” as he called for “all Covid-related policies” to be “rescinded immediately”.
“What have been the benefits of lockdowns and masking?” he wrote.
“I say to you that there is ZERO benefit to this continued practice.”

Wallace started experiencing Covid symptoms four days before he was hospitalized – but refused to get tested and instead tried to treat himself with Vitamin C, zinc, aspirin and ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug the FDA has urged people not to use for the bug.
His pregnant wife Jessica told GoSanAngelo: “Every time he would start to cough, it would turn into a coughing attack, and then that would cause him to completely go out of breath.
“He was so hard-headed. He didn’t want to see a doctor, because he didn’t want to be part of the statistics with Covid tests.”
But as Wallace’s condition deteriorated, he had to go to hospital – and within days was put on a ventilator.
“He couldn’t breathe on his own,” Jessica said.
“The first week he was able to be on oxygen. By the morning of (Aug. 8), he had to be ventilated.”
On Wednesday, Jessica shared an upsetting update on her Facebook page, saying her husband was “not doing good”.
“It’s not looking in our favor, his lungs are stiff due to the fibrosis,” she wrote.
“They called and said they’ve run out of options for him and asked if I would consent to a do not resuscitate. And it would be up to us when to stop treatments.
“My heart just can’t. I can’t imagine my life without him. I’m sorry if I don’t respond to any calls or texts or messages, I am just broken up.”
Jessica has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover household bills.
She wrote: “Caleb has always worked hard to allow me to be a stay-at-home mom and now in these difficult times I don’t know where to turn.
“I have had friends and family ask how they can help, and for the longest time bills were not on my mind but with Caleb being out for over 2 weeks the bills are approaching and we were not prepared for this to be happening.
