PEOPLE uploading videos of coins and mobile phones stuck to their arm are spreading “fake news”, says Papua New Guinea Prime Minister James Marape.
Since the Coronavirus (Covid-19) hit the country and the world early last year, he said PNG had “never seen the type of surge we are witnessing now”.
“It’s not fake news and it is not superstitious. It is real,” he said.
“Spinning all manners of the news is what individuals do and the propagation of such fake news and speculation is being consumed by the masses.”
He challenged anyone who has a coin stuck to the arm which was injected with the vaccine to come to the National Control Centre (NCC) and prove it.
“If the coin is still stuck on where he/she got vaccinated, I will give you K1,000,” he said.
