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

The deception was spotted by a nurse, Filippa Bua, as she was about to administer the vaccine in Biella, Piedmont on Thursday. Bua told CNN she noticed something odd about the arm."The color of the skin was anomalous, much lighter compared to the hands or the face of the patient," she said.After inspecting the area, she realized that the arm was fake, made of silicone.Making Covid-19 vaccines mandatory was once unthinkable. But European countries are showing it can work"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."But then he admitted he was wearing the fake arm on purpose to avoid getting the vaccine!" Read MoreThe revelation prompted a range of emotions for Bua, who said she has been a nurse since 1987 and has administered thousands of jabs."At the very beginning I was surprised, then I was angry, I felt professionally offended, he showed no respect for our intelligence and our profession," she said."I would never expect such a thing in my life."The Piedmont regional government condemned the man's attempt to cheat the system."The case could be classified as 'ridiculous,' except that we are talking about a gesture of enormous gravity, unacceptable for the sacrifice that the whole community is paying for the pandemic," a joint communiqué from the Piedmont region's President and health councilor reads.Violence over Italy's strict Covid pass has ignited a national debate about fascismIn a video message, the President of the Piedmont regional government, Alberto Cirio, went further, saying the incident was"an offense to the region's health system, that is among the first in Italy for vaccination capacity and for booster doses."On November 30, Cirio tweeted a map from the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control in which Piedmont appears among the few areas in Europe marked in green, meaning the Covid-19 infection rate is below 1%.The Biella health department has filed a complaint with the local prosecutor's office.The Italian government last month signed a decree making a Covid-19"super green pass" mandatory in bars, restaurants, theaters and other indoor entertainment venues.'use strict';CNN.Videx=CNN.Videx || {};CNN.Videx.mobile={};CNN.INJECTOR.executeFeature('video').then(function () {CNN.VideoPlayer.handleUnmutePlayer=function handleUnmutePlayer(containerId, dataObj) {'use strict';var playerInstance,playerPropertyObj,rememberTime,unmuteCTA,unmuteIdSelector='unmute_' + containerId,isPlayerMute;dataObj=dataObj || {};if (CNN.VideoPlayer.getLibraryName(containerId)==='fave') {playerInstance=FAVE.player.getInstance(containerId) || null;} else {playerInstance=containerId && window.cnnVideoManager.getPlayerByContainer(containerId).videoInstance.cvp || null;}isPlayerMute=(typeof dataObj.muted==='boolean') ? dataObj.muted : false;if (CNN.VideoPlayer.playerProperties && CNN.VideoPlayer.playerProperties[containerId]) {playerPropertyObj=CNN.VideoPlayer.playerProperties[containerId];}if (playerPropertyObj.mute && playerPropertyObj.contentPlayed) {if (isPlayerMute===false) {unmuteCTA=jQuery(document.getElementById(unmuteIdSelector));playerInstance.unmute();if (unmuteCTA.length > 0) {unmuteCTA.removeClass('video__unmute--active').addClass('video__unmute--inactive');unmuteCTA.off('click');rememberTime=0;if (rememberTime 0) {$vidEndSlate.find('.l-container').html('');$vidEndSlate.removeClass('video__end-slate--inactive').addClass('video__end-slate--active');}};CNN.autoPlayVideoExist=(CNN.autoPlayVideoExist===true) ? true : false;var configObj={thumb: 'none',video: 'world/2021/10/29/ukraine-fake-vaccine-certificates-nobilo-tgb-intl-hnk-vpx.cnn',width: '100%',height: '100%',section: 'international',profile: 'expansion',network: 'cnn',markupId: 'body-text_20',theoplayer: {allowNativeFullscreen: true},adsection: 'const-article-inpage',frameWidth: '100%',frameHeight: '100%',posterImageOverride: {"mini":{"width":220,"type":"jpg","uri":"//cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/211029112903-screengrab-police-raid-small-169.jpg","height":124},"xsmall":{"width":307,"type":"jpg","uri":"//cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/211029112903-screengrab-police-raid-medium-plus-169.jpg","height":173},"small":{"width":460,"type":"jpg","uri":"//cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/211029112903-screengrab-police-raid-large-169.jpg","height":259},"medium":{"width":780,"type":"jpg","uri":"//cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/211029112903-screengrab-police-raid-exlarge-169.jpg","height":438},"large":{"width":1100,"type":"jpg","uri":"//cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/211029112903-screengrab-police-raid-super-169.jpg","height":619},"full16x9":{"width":1600,"type":"jpg","uri":"//cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/211029112903-screengrab-police-raid-full-169.jpg","height":900},"mini1x1":{"width":120,"type":"jpg","uri":"//cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/211029112903-screengrab-police-raid-small-11.jpg","height":120}}},autoStartVideo=false,isVideoReplayClicked=false,callbackObj,containerEl,currentVideoCollection=[],currentVideoCollectionId='',isLivePlayer=false,mediaMetadataCallbacks,mobilePinnedView=null,moveToNextTimeout,mutePlayerEnabled=false,nextVideoId='',nextVideoUrl='',turnOnFlashMessaging=false,videoPinner,videoEndSlateImpl;if (CNN.autoPlayVideoExist===false) {autoStartVideo=false;autoStartVideo=typeof CNN.isLoggedInVideoCheck==='function' ?

The agency said earlier on Friday that it was still studying the transmissibility and severity of the new variant.

Nobody should be forced into a vaccine experiment. He can just cut the arm off after getting the shot. Then do the same with the other arm after getting the second shot. Then laugh his ass off after getting booster LOCKDOWN FOR THE UNVACCINATED (You Know It Makes Sense….except to those who are partial to QANONSENSE) SatiricalSteven

Study: Black, Asian Britons have higher COVID-19 death rates | AP NewsLONDON (AP) — Almost two years into the pandemic, Black and other ethnic minority people in Britain are still dying with the coronavirus at higher rates than white residents, likely because of lower vaccination rates, a government-commissioned report said Friday. Just like Democrat controlled communities with high numbers of segregated POC. Dr Wouter Basson had wanted it so much... I feel bad for all who lost their lives because of this virus. I can only imagine though the AP headline if this would have happened in a Republican led state, or if the victims were from conservative areas.
