A nurse in Germany is now under investigation by Police over reports that she may have injected thousands of people with a saline solution instead of a coronavirus vaccine.

The self-proclaimed anti-vaxxer reportedly worked as a nurse for Red Cross at a vaccination site in Friesland, Germany. Police investigators said they have a "reasonable suspicion" of her alleged actions based on witness testimony.

Police investigator Peter Beer said the rogue nurse might have injected saline solutions to more than 8,600 patients who visited the Roffhausen Vaccination Center.

The district administrator of Friesland, Sven Ambrosy, said he was shocked to learn about the reports. He added that his office would do everything it can to ensure that all of the people injected with the placebo will get their vaccinations as soon as possible.

"The district of Friesland will do everything possible to ensure that the affected people receive their vaccination protection," Ambrosy said.

Local officials are urging those who got inoculated at the vaccination site to contact them so they can be scheduled for another shot. Officials said they have already sent emails and called people they believe had received the fake shots.

Health officials in Lower Saxony, as reported by CNN, claimed that the nurse was responsible for preparing vaccines and syringes at the center. Investigators said the nurse had made her anti-vaccine stance known to the public through various posts on social media.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time medical practitioners have expressed their opposition to vaccines. In June, a hospital in Texas suspended 178 employees for refusing to get vaccinated.

While injected saline into the body is harmless, she may have indirectly put people's lives at risk because of her actions. Apart from giving people a false sense of immunity, she has put older people and those with compromised immunity at great risk.

Police have not named the nurse publicly, and it is not yet clear if any arrests were made or charges filed related to the case.

Last month, a group in India had given people, at a COVID-19 vaccination center, fake vaccine doses filled with saline solution. Indian authorities arrested all 14 people involved in the scandal.
