Nowadays everyone is an expert on everything.
The advent of social media means everyone has a voice and a platform from which to speak.
Everyone has a TikTok account, Twitter account, YouTube channel and Facebook profile from which to broadcast their own ideas.
But it is questionable if they are presenting quality information, as in the case of a woman who claimed there is HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) in Covid-19 vaccines, especially booster shots.
As such, she urged people who received booster shots to check for HIV, which can lead to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) if left untreated.
She claimed that the Covid-19 virus did not actually exist and was a conspiracy.
The woman added that she had sent a letter to the Ministry of Health (KKM) to get evidence that Covid-19 was not just a bacterium or a virus.
She lamented that the ministry had not responded to her questions.

In the video, she also claimed the government is hiding certain facts about Covid-19.
She added that the halal status of vaccines never really existed.
She ‘quoted’ studies from unconfirmed sources which claimed that the Covid-19 vaccine had animal cells and even included various viruses such as HIV virus.
Soon, hundreds of comments flooded social media, with people sharing their dislikes.
The woman had been criticised as bearing the hallmarks of an anti-vaxxer.
Most were offended and trolled the woman, others questioned if she went to school at all.
Many on social media pointed out that she shouldn’t have passed an opinion without doing proper research and fact-checking.

The misinformation has spread amid greater global awareness for HIV testing.

The World Health Organization (WHO) said coronavirus vaccines are safe and effective.
If there are any risks, it would be extremely rare.
WHO has also warned of “infodemic” – misinformation related to Covid-19 – which is also prevalent in Malaysia.
The tide of misinformation had led to government agencies and ministries, especially KKM, being targeted by anti vaxxers.
Anything vaccines related are the last thing you'd wanna lie about during global pandemic. Get your act together, KKM. Stop giving antivax group the conspiracies/content they're looking for. 🤦🏻♂️ https://t.co/GZyHWVmj2C— Rashvin Dharsha Nath (@jrashvin98) February 21, 2021
Health Ministry director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah has assured that Covid-19 vaccines including booster shots are closely monitored for quality, safety, and efficacy.
