Twitter on Monday marked senior advocate Prashant Bhushan’s tweets questioning the safety and efficacy of Covid-19 vaccines approved for emergency use in India as “misleading”.

“The healthy young have hardly any chance of serious effects or dying due to covid. They have a higher chance of dying due to vaccines. The covid recovered have much better natural immunity, than the vaccine gives them. Vaccines may even compromise their acquired natural immunity,” he wrote.
