Thousands of people in Germany have been urged to get re-jabbed after nurse is suspected of replacing Covid vaccines with saline solution.
Authorities in northern Germany have been left shocked after a nurse has been suspected of replacing Covid vaccines with a saline solution. The authorities have urged thousands of people to have another shot of the Covid vaccine. The police are investigating the case where a Red Cross nurse is believed to have injected people with a saline solution rather than the real deal.
The Red Cross nurse was working at a vaccination centre in Friesland, near the North Sea coast. She had been working there in early spring and is suspected of injecting saline.
One local councillor, Sven Ambrosy took to Facebook to show his shock as local authorities on Tuesday, August 10, urged nearly 9000 people to be re-jabbed.
“I am totally shocked by this episode,” said Ambrosy.
The saline solution if in fact injected would not harm people but when the events are believed to have taken place in Germany during March and April it was mainly high risk people and the elderly who are being vaccinated. This means that these people are at far higher risk from not being jabbed.
Police investigator Peter Beer believes that there is “a reasonable suspicion of danger” due to the witness statements that have been taken.
As this time it is not known if the motive was political but the nurse who has not been named had previously taken to social media and aired her scepticism on vaccines, according to the police. According to NDR the case is being handled by a special unit dedicated to investigating crimes with political motivation.
