Debunked: No, there is no website for ‘reporting’ unvaccinated people _

Posts on social media have been misinterpreting a satirical website that purports to be a portal where people can report their unvaccinated friends and family to the authorities for a chance to win money. The posts falsely claim that this website is evidence of creeping totalitarianism by shadowy forces capitalising on the pandemic. The website, which features a disclaimer clarifying that it is satire, was set up by a political candidate in the USA who has been critical of lockdown measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Reuters has debunked this misunderstanding of political satire.
