Inquiry into Thessaloniki professor’s social media post on Hardalias


The prosecutor’s office in Thessaloniki has reportedly ordered an inquiry into a social media post by a pharmacology professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki who linked last week’s heart incident suffered by Deputy Civil Protection Minister Nikos Hardalias to a “potential adverse reaction” to the Covid-19 vaccines which he was administered.

The post by Dimitris Kouvelas, uploaded a few days ago, provoked reactions among the scientific community and on social media.

The inquest was ordered to ascertain whether the offense of spreading fake news can be substantiated.
