On December 28, 2021, Grichka Bogdanoff was killed as a result of Covid-19. However, six days later, for the same reasons, it was his twin brother, Igor, who breathed his last on January 3, 2022. Since the announcement of the death of the scientific twins, the tributes have multiplied and their loved ones have not. stop coming out of the silence to recall how close and close they were. It is therefore natural that their funeral will take place on the same day. On Wednesday January 5, 2022, their family informed BFMTV that they will take place this Monday January 10, 2022, at 3 p.m., at the Madeleine Church in Paris. Many personalities should be present to accompany the twins on their last trip.
As a reminder, Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff were not vaccinated against Covid-19. According to Edouard De Lamaze, Grichka Bogdanoff’s lawyer, they were not against vaccination but they just felt that they had a very healthy lifestyle and that they were thus untouchable. This is also the opinion of some of their relatives like Pierre-Jean Chalençon. “Several of their friends told them to get vaccinated. But they considered that in relation to their lifestyle, and their [absence of] comorbidity, they were not the target of Covid”, he told BFMTV .
The Bogdanoff brothers were 72 years old
Only, at 72 years old, the virus was stronger than their will to live. Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff leave behind their family in mourning and sadness at having lost them both, only a few days apart. As a reminder, they became known to the general public in the 1980s with their science fiction and popular science program, Temps X. Since then, they have never left the audiovisual landscape.
