Thousands of people may need to be revaccinated
(translation: Covid lies)
If anyone need a reminder of how much medicine depends upon personal trust, look this week to Germany.
A 40-year-old nurse in Friesland, in the north of the country, may have given thousands of people a shot of saline rather than a COVID-19 vaccine. Authorities announced that around 8,600 people may need to be revaccinated. The injections were given in March and April by a woman who had expressed anti-vaccination views on social media.
CNN reported that the nurse had access to the vaccines because she was “responsible for the preparation of vaccines and the preparation of syringes during her working hours in the vaccination center”.
The nurse’s lawyer spoke to the media and admitted that she had given saline injections at least six times. She said that she had panicked after she broke a vial of vaccine and did it only to keep her job. However, authorities fear that it could have happened many more times. Police are investigating.
A spokesperson for Lower Saxony's health ministry said that it seems that no severe COVID-19 infections had occurred as a result of the saline injections.
