The narrative can make people confused about vaccines, but this is actually the case.
The COVID-19 vaccine, starting from the basic one to the booster, has been disseminated and implemented in various parts of the world. The goal is to create conditions for the body to be capable of coping with viral attacks, which among other things attack the human respiratory system.
Quoted from Turnbackhoax.id, on social media Instagram a narrative is circulating which states, “BREAKING: US military is now testing soldiers for AIDS, after DOD database reports 500% increase in HIV since the COVID vaccine rollout”.
Or the translation, “Important News: The US military is starting to test its soldiers for AIDS, after the DOD database reported a 500% increase in HIV after the release of the COVID vaccine”.
After searching, this upload is not true. Namely information about the US military testing AIDS among its troops and the DoD (Department of Defense) database states that HIV has increased by up to 500 percent.
Fact: DoD spokespersons have denied that the statements about HIV testing and promotion are false. The material being narrated is an old hoax that has been circulating since 2022, linking the spike in HIV cases to the COVID-19 vaccination. Now added the United States military seasoning.
The information shared about breaking news on AIDS development and the COVID-19 vaccine has material in the category of misleading content.
