ROME - An Italian man wanted to get his vaccine passport so he could travel and was prepared to go to outrageous lengths to do so. He tried to use a fake arm to fool health care workers into giving him a Covid 19 vaccine.
Despite his efforts to make the arm look as realistic as possible, the man did not fool anyone and he was reported to the local police in Biella, Italy.
The Guardian reported that When the nurse lifted his sleeve she did not notice anything immediately but when she touched the arm and took a closer look she saw through the 50-year-old man's trick.
Albert Cirio, head of the local government said that despite the ridiculous nature of the incident it could have had serious repercussions. He said that man's actions had jeopardised all the sacrifices the community had made in the fight against Covid 19 according to EWN.
