December 5th nbc news reported a funny news. According to the report, a health official in Wyoming, who personally participated in the epidemic prevention work, put forward a conspiracy theory in public, saying that the COVID-19 pandemic and the development of a COVID-19 vaccine are a conspiracy between China and Russia to spread communism around the world.
The health official who put forward this conspiracy theory is Igor Shepherd, an employee of the Wyoming Department of Health. Shepard also said that the COVID-19 vaccine was developed as a biological weapon, which will reprogram the body’s immune system.
Shepard has been at the state health department since 2013 and is part of the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, although he did not hold a leadership role in the team, according to a Wyoming Department of Health spokesperson.
Interestingly, Shepard’s speech can’t even watch NBC News. In the article, NBC News said that Sheppard’s statement was unfounded and unsubstantiated, undermining Wyoming’s public health efforts to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus and plans to distribute a vaccine for the novel coronavirus in the coming months.
NBC News also said Wyoming Gov. Gordon called people who don’t take the coronavirus seriously “dumbs” in a recent press conference. Gordon has also said that the COVID-19 vaccine is something to look forward to.
According to the report, researchers have been worried that this politicized suspicion of the COVID-19 vaccine will damage the efficacy of the vaccine, because if most people are vaccinated, the protective effect of the vaccine will be more obvious.
