A Survey reveals that 1 in 5 Americans believe that if they get vaccinated against COVID-19 they will inject them with a microchip.
One in five Americans believes it is ‘definitely true’ or ‘probably true’ that there is a microchip in covid-19 vaccines, reveals data analysis portal YouGov.
In the new YouGov study, conducted in collaboration with The Economist magazine, they found that people between the ages of 30 and 44 are the most likely to believe this totally discredited conspiratorial theory, with 7% saying it is ‘definitely true’ and 20% who marked the option ‘probably true’ which means that 1 in 5 Americans believe it. In total, 1,490 people were interviewed.
This belief, which originated in social networks and was denied by Bill Gates himself, assumes that the coronavirus is an invention created by the co-founder of Microsoft, to be able to control the masses through chips implanted by means of vaccines.
Of the 1,490 respondents, only 8% of those who voted for Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential elections believe the theory ‘probably true’, but none chose the option of ‘definitely true’, while among those who voted for the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, there are 29% of those who answered ‘definitely true’ or ‘probably true’ to the possibility that vaccines contain microchips.
