A post accompanying a video claiming that the government is planting a microchip into human bodies through the COVID-19 vaccine in order to take them under their control is going viral on social media platforms. Let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.
Claim: The government is implanting microchips into human bodies through COVID-19 vaccine in order to take them under control.
Fact: There is no evidence of the government implanting microchips into human bodies in order to control them. Also, there is no information regarding the government making vaccination mandatory to obtain passport. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
There is no credible evidence of government implanting microchips into human bodies in order to take control of their bodies. Earlier, when a similar claim saying that Bill & Melinda Gates are using the vaccine as a pretext to implant microchips to collect biometric details of people went viral on social media, several media outlets rubbished the claim. These articles can be read here and here.
FACTLY has also debunked the same claim among many other claims related to COVID-19 vaccines.
Further, the video in the post claims that getting vaccinated is mandatory to obtain passport. However, there is no official information from the government’s side or news articles in this regard. In fact, the government recently announced that prior registration on Co-Win will not remain mandatory to get vaccinated.
To sum it up, government is not implanting microchips into human bodies through COVID-19 vaccine.
