A 50-year-old man in the city of Biella in northern Italy who went to get vaccined against Covid-19 wearing a fake silicone hand is causing a sensation in Italy.
The man had stuck his fake forearm on his shoulder and hid his real hand behind his back. But the nurse who was prepared the injection realised that it was made of silicone from the colour of the 'skin m' and by touching it.
The goal of the fifty-year-old was to obtain a vaccination certificate without receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine . He even tried to bribe the nurse when he got caught.
"If it were not tragic, it would be comical. "But in the situation we are living in, with the loss of life, with so much financial hardship, it is really an unacceptable act," said Alberto Cirio, president of the Piedmont region, which includes Biella.
The fifty-year-old has been called to front the Italian justice system.
