It’s a wild world on Telegram.
About 100 people share claims that people become magnetic because of COVID-19 vaccines.
The “SG The Magnetic Group Chat” channel was noticed by others outside of the encrypted messaging platform, urging trolls to join us with jokes referring to the villainous Magneto of the X Men comic series. As of July, the group has shared at least 30 so-called cases of individuals claiming to be able to stick metal objects to their bodies either after taking the COVID-19 vaccine or by being around vaccinated individuals, while discussing ways to “get rid of themselves.” detoxify themselves from materials they mistakenly believe to be in vaccines.
Metal sticks to sweaty skin, and the bizarre theory that there is a link to vaccination continues to circulate despite being completely debunked.
The channel was ridiculed on the internet over the weekend and has since been closed to the public.
“Welcome to all of our new subscribers. We had to remove a lot of trolls because of their complete disrespect for science and emerging evidence, ”the channel administrator said yesterday. “Our group chat will remain closed until we purge all the trolls. In the meantime, please read all of the previous articles to understand why people are magnetic and feel free to try it on your own friends / family who have been vaccinated under the right conditions.
One of her latest cases showed that an elderly Singaporean woman was able to stick a metal ruler to her left arm after receiving her vaccine booster last month. Other posts showed a man able to stick a metal key to the left side of her forehead, and another showed an unvaccinated woman living with vaccinated family members sticking a coin to her forehead and a spoon metal on his right arm.
Again, people slapped metal spoons and coins on their sweaty flesh long before COVID-19.
Some also compared their body’s field measurement readings, implying that there were stronger magnetic fields around the vaccinated individuals.
Although experts around the world have quashed claims about the magnetic effects of COVID-19 vaccines, videos of people promoting the idea continue to rack up hundreds of thousands of views on platforms like TikTok.
The SG Magnetic Group Chat is just one of many on Telegram where anti-vaxxers in Singapore have gathered to discuss refuted theories related to the coronavirus. Others include the “SG Covid La Kopi” channel which has 13,055 members, and another focused on the parasitic pill Ivermectin, which has around 1,000 members.
Nevertheless, Singapore claims that 83% of the population has been vaccinated.
