Jammu: While we have heard people talking about how they have gotten fever or bodyache after taking the vaccine doses, here’s a claim that’s at a whole new level.
A senior citizen from Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir has claimed that he has developed magnetic powers after taking Covid vaccine dose.
Thakur Kirpal Singh residents of district Kathua ward no-17 of Kirpal Nagar claimed that he has developed magnetic power after the COVID vaccination.
“I got COVID vaccines two months ago and had not developed any after vaccination effects,” he said.
“Recently, I watched a new of television that man claiming that he has magnetic power. Following which I have tested the same on my body and found that my body has also developed the same powers,’ he said.
“Even my wife got vaccination for COVID but they have not found with magnetic powers,” he said.
He further informed that the he is not clear that this happen after vaccination because he has not tired the same before.
He son Bhanu Partap Singh said that they tired after viral video on social media. “First we tired spoons, then nails and then I tried all old coins,” he said.
He added all the metals are attaching with the body of my father and this is issue of research.
Chief Medical Officer Kathua, Ashok Choudhary said “ I don’t know about social media but this wont happen after vaccination,” he said.
He said that the can able to comment after checkup. “ More than 12 crore people have been inoculated and this is not related to vaccination,” he added.
Earlier, Arvind Sonar, a resident of Nashik’s Shivaji Chowk says that metal objects have been easily sticking to his body after taking vaccine doses.
To prove his point, Sonar has also made a video that has gone viral on social media, in which plates, spoons, coins can be seen sticking to Sonar’s body.
When it happened for the first time, the family members thought that it could be due to sweat. However, even after taking a bath, the objects continued to stick to his body which left them surprised.
The incident has left everyone confused with doctors saying that it will be difficult to comment on it without a thorough investigation.
The doctors from the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) have also visited Sonar to find the reason behind the attraction to metal objects.
“I have seen the video, however, we can’t confirm that it has happened after vaccination. After investigation only we can come to some conclusion. For now, we will send a report to the government and after that, we will see if any investigation needs to be done,” said Doctor Ashok Thorat.
Sonar’s son Jayant says that he had seen a video of a person from Delhi who claimed to have developed magnetic power after taking a second dose, and following that, he asked his parents to try it.
“When we placed spoon, plates, coins on the body, they stuck to his body.”
The Press Information Bureau’s (PIB) fact-checking arm, PIB Fact Check, has said these claims about Covid-19 vaccines are “baseless”. “Vaccines cannot cause a magnetic reaction in the human body. COVID-19 vaccines are completely safe and do not contain any metal-based ingredients. It is common to experience mild side-effects like mild headaches, pain or swelling at the injection site, and mild fever after getting the COVID-19 vaccine,” it said. “Do not fall prey to misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines and get vaccinated,” added.
