FALSE Claim via Social Media: The U.S. “takes 87% of all the prescription medications in the world.”

No evidence that vast majority of all prescription medications are consumed in US

BLATANT
LIE
Claim by rumble.com: A video presentation proves that the spike protein in COVID-19 mRNA vaccines replaces the sperm in men.

Claim by Al Franken (D): “Americans will get $1.1 B in rebates from health insurance companies this year cuz of a provision I wrote in the ACA.”

Politifact rating: Mostly True (That amount, while an estimate, is likely very close to the total payout that a provision of the Affordable Care Act will require insurers to rebate consumers this year. The rule kicks in when insurers spend too little on actual medical care.)

A windfall in health insurance rebates? It’s not as crazy as it sounds

BLATANT
LIE

FALSE (International: Australia): Claim by Financial Analyst David Martin: Every scientific publication on coronaviruses from 1990 to 2018 found vaccines do not work against the virus type.

Australian Associated Press rating: False (Various research showed vaccines could work against coronaviruses before the COVID-19 vaccines proved their effectiveness.)

Years of vaccine research data ignored in coronavirus rant
