Covid-19: Man passes off fake silicone arm as his own in attempt to get vaccine certificate without actually being vaccinated



A 50-year-old man in Italy tried to pass off a silicone arm as his own at a Covid-19 vaccination clinic in an attempt to get a vaccine certificate without actually getting vaccinated.


The cunning act was spotted by a nurse, Filippa Bua, as she was about to administer the vaccine in Biella, Piedmont on Thursday, December 2.




"The color of the skin was anomalous, much lighter compared to the hands or the face of the patient," Bua said to CNN.


After inspecting the area of the arm, she said she realized that the arm was fake, made of silicone.




"I first felt sorry for the man, thinking that he had a prosthesis and wondering if I had somehow forced him to give me the wrong arm," Bua said.Latest Post
