A German nurse received no jail time for injecting thousands of seniors last year with a saltwater solution rather than the COVID-19 vaccine.
The nurse jabbed 8,600 people who were mainly hospital employees, educators and doctors over the age of 70 between March and April 2021.
The woman, whose license as a nurse has been revoked, has not been publicly identified by German authorities and her face was blurred in images from the courtroom.
Antibody tests on a number of other coworkers confirmed that they hadn’t received the COVID vaccine, per the Mail, however there was only enough evidence to convict the nurse for changing out six syringes.
The nurse also had multiple social media posts expressing skepticism about the COVID vaccines.
“The accused had shared various conspiracy theories on the Internet and on social media,” the court spokesperson said, per the Mail. “However, the chamber could not determine with the necessary certainty that this set of ideas was the motive for her actions and that she then acted to sabotage a vaccination campaign.”
