KZN health MEC dismisses rumours that Covid-19 vaccines turn people into cannibals

KwaZulu-Natall (KZN) Health MEC Nomagugu Simelane has shot down rumours that the Covid–19 vaccine turns people into blood-thirsty cannibals, saying that she herself is living proof that the vaccine is safe for use.

“As I stand before you, I’ve never had the urge to eat anyone, and it will never happen. So, what people are saying about the vaccine making people want to eat others… of being part of 5G technology, or linked to the work of the devil, is all nothing but a myth. It is not true.”

The MEC was speaking during a mobile community outreach programme known as Isibhedlela Kubantu, at Magabheni Sports Ground, near Umkomaas on Tuesday, which was attended by more than 500 mainly elderly people.

More than 3, 233 million people in KZN have been vaccinated, the provincial department of health said.

At the community outreach programme, local residents were also screened and tested for Covid–19, among other things.
