A screenshot of a news report related to Covid-19 vaccination is going viral on social media. In the screenshot, it is being claimed that US President Joe Biden has announced that Americans who are not vaccinated before 2022 will be put in quarantine camps.
A Facebook user has shared the screenshot with a caption that reads, “What are your concerns now?”
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found it to be fake.
In the news, it has been stated that as part of his latest efforts to contain Covid-19, the President will be putting Americans, who have chosen to not be vaccinated, into ‘quarantine camps’ indefinitely until they get inoculated.
If Biden had indeed made a statement of this kind then the news would have been published in all the major media websites. But ,we did not find any such news from any credible media organisation.
At the end of the news article, it is written that this article first appeared on The Stonk Market. We searched for ‘The Stonk Market’ on the web and found the same article published there as well.
However, on scrolling through the page we came across a statement where it was written that thestonkmarket.com is a satirical website related to economic issues. Its primary focus is to make content related to ‘financial humor’.
Thus, from the above information, it is evident that the news of President Joe Biden announcing that Americans who are not vaccinated before 2022 will be put in quarantine camps is false and the article was written only as a satirical piece. It has nothing to do with reality.
