A HERMIT has left his cave for the first time in 20 years – to get his Covid jab.
Panta Pertrovic, 70, moved to his tiny Serbian cave in the mountains to avoid society two decades ago,
The retired labourer – who uses a rusty bathtub as a loo – today got a peak at the outside world to get his first dose of the vaccine, and has urged others to get a jab too.
His house is only accessible by a steep climb that is not for the fainthearted and his closest friends include goats, chickens, 30 cats and dogs and his favourite – an adult wild boar named Mara.
Panta said he doesn’t understand the fuss” some vaccine sceptics make.
He said: “I want to get all three doses, including the extra one. I urge every citizen to get vaccinated, every single one of them.”
