Dr. Dhanusha Dassanayake, Consultant Immunologist at the Medical Research Institute said that there was a myth that vaccines given to the public for the coronavirus had micro chips in them.
She said that the myth was created after a statement made by American business magnate and software developer Bill Gates was misunderstood.
Dr. Dhanusha Dassanayake said that Gates had spoken of the need to issue a digital certificate when vaccinating the public.
She said that the statement was misunderstood by some as an attempt to implant a chip using the vaccine jab.
Dr. Dhanusha Dassanayake said that there are a group of people who oppose vaccinations.
She noted that these people attempt to mislead others to prevent them from obtaining the vaccine. (Colombo Gazette)
