Fact Check: These Officials Posing For Covid-19 Vaccine Is Not What It Looks Like | India Today
Avideo in which a man and a woman are seen posing for vaccination pictures is circulating on social media with the claim that officials in Karnataka’s Tumkur are faking it for the cameras while pretending to take Covid-19 vaccines. The 43-second video also shows a nurse posing as if she’s administering injection to the duo.
“In Tumkur District officials fake it before camera, pretending to take Covid Vaccine, why this fake promotion? Where there is BJP there is Fraud,” reads one such caption along with the video.
India Today Anti Fake News War Room (AFWA) has found the claim to be misleading. The officials in the video are Tumakuru district health officer (DHO) Nagendrappa and principal of district health coaching centre Dr Rajani M. The officials posed on request from the media. The Tumakaru district magistrate confirmed that they were later vaccinated on the same day.
