After the music video went viral on social media, other people shared video clips of themselves with coins and spoons stuck to their arms and bodies.
MANS issued a statement that there is no scientific basis for Sonar’s claims. “It is necessary to check whether the man has something stuck on his arm. It could be something similar to what magicians do. If this man developed magnetism, why did several others not develop the same? No such incident has yet been reported. MANS, if allowed, will verify the truth behind the claim, ”MANS said in the statement.
Anna Kadlaskar, a member of the MANS state committee, said Sonar’s claim was false. “No one should consider this a miracle from God. We saw the video and why is it that only this man developed magnetism? There is no connection between magnetism and the vaccine. If it’s magnetism, how can steel stick and not iron? It is possible that the man applied a glue-like substance to his body. No one should raise such rumors about the Covishield vaccine, ”Kadlaskar said.
