Amid the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination drive, a post started making rounds on the Internet which shows French Nobel Laureate Luc Montagnier claiming that all vaccinated people will die within 2 years.
The viral post reads: "All vaccinated people will die within 2 years. Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier has confirmed that there is no chance of survival for people who have received any form of the vaccine."
It added: "In a shocking interview the world's leading virologist stated bluntly that there was no hope and no possible treatment for those who have already been vaccinated."

“An image allegedly quoting a French Nobel Laureate on COVID-19 vaccines is circulating on social media. The claim in the image is FAKE. COVID-19 vaccine is completely safe. Do not forward this image,” PIB tweeted.
The government of India has been asserting that COVID-19 vaccines are completely safe and have been crucial in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
