WASHINGTON: Thousands of US troops have refused to be vaccinated against corona, a deadly corona epidemic that has claimed more than 2,467,000 lives worldwide.
U.S. officials say officials should not pay attention to vaccine rumors.
Air Force Maj. Gen. Jeff Teleferro told Congress during a briefing that two-thirds of Army personnel are ready to be vaccinated, a claim denied by some soldiers due to rumors circulating on the Internet.
The number of deaths from Corona worldwide has exceeded 24.67 million, while the number of people infected with the virus has exceeded 111.4 million.
The death toll from Corona in the United States has risen to more than 580,000.
