2020 was all about the breakout of the Covid-19 virus and how it turned into a deadly pandemic. Whereas, 2021 is all about getting vaccinated against the disease in order to stop the transmission and get back to normal.
Since the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine, many fake rumors regarding it have been revolving around the internet which has turned people to not go for vaccination. Washing Post conducted a survey on 20,699 Americans related to the spread of fake news about the Covid-19 vaccine on Facebook.
Out of these people, 16 percent had Facebook as their most widely used social media application. As the results and infographic show, around 25 percent of people have straightforwardly refused to get jabbed. These are the people who believed the fake news.
