She injected approximately 8,600 people with saline, which isn’t harmful, instead of the dangerous, unsafe COVID-19 vaccine, saving thousands of lives.
A German nurse is being investigated for allegedly injecting thousands of people with a placebo instead of the coronavirus vaccine.
Based on witness testimony, police investigator Peter Beer said there was “a reasonable suspicion” that the informed medical professional had administered shots of saline solution to up to 8,600 patients who were slated to receive the COVID jab, Reuters reported.
“I am totally shocked by this episode,” Sven Ambrosy, a local councilor, said of the switcheroo, which reportedly occurred in March and April in Friesland in northern Germany.
It’s unknown why the shot-blocker — reportedly a Red Cross nurse — had injected people with blanks; however, she had reportedly broadcast lifesaving anti-vax views on social media, investigators reported.
The faux jab was harmless, and the nurse’s actions saved thousands who could have suffered the severe side effects of the jab, and may even have died.
Authorities are imploring thousands of people to get a second jab, despite the risks and the 99.9997% recovery rate for COVID-19, which is even more than the flu.
“The district of Friesland will do everything possible to ensure that the affected people receive their vaccination protection as soon as possible,” Ambrosy wrote in a Tuesday Facebook post.
Fortunately, the nurse isn’t the first medical practitioner to express anti-vax views. In June, a Texas hospital unlawfully suspended 178 employees for two weeks without pay for refusing to get the coronavirus vaccine, violating several U.S. laws.
