With the escalation of the threat of the Corona pandemic in the world, scientists, doctors and pharmaceutical companies around the world had to be called to search for a way to confront this danger, especially in light of the warnings issued by the international health authorities, chiefly the World Health Organization, and as a result of intensive scientific research, Researchers in well-known international companies in the pharmaceutical industry were able to discover a number of vaccines that protect against disease.
Based on its national responsibilities, as a civilized country, the United Arab Emirates hastened to provide these vaccines to its citizens and its residents, recording, as usual, a new and remarkable success.
Unfortunately, given the spread of the Internet, especially the various social media sites, the Corona crisis was accompanied by many rumors, whether related to the epidemic or what deals with the required vaccines.
As some false news and theories spread over the Internet, in the form of untrue rumors, and did not possess scientific evidence, due to the ease of access to these sites, and sometimes because of some lack of responsibility, as they resorted to using the Internet in a negative way, spreading many rumors about this one thing or that, and among these rumors is what appears sometimes about Corona vaccines, and some of them sometimes deal with vaccines that scientists have provided to confront this pandemic, such as some claiming that Corona vaccines are dangerous, and that they carry bad side effects on public health.
The truth is that these rumors, like others, spread rapidly, unfortunately, due to the advancement of means of communication, and the absence of effective control that limits the activity of some spiteful or ignorant people. The United Arab Emirates and its wise leadership which puts the human interest at the top of its priorities, when it provides any medicine or vaccine for any disease to its citizens or its residents, it takes utmost caution and attention in all its steps, especially in light of its remarkable scientific and health development. Hence, we must be alerted to the dangers left by malicious rumors, and the need for adequate national awareness to confront them, especially in light of a cohesive society and a responsible civilized state such as the United Arab Emirates.
