#MagnetChallenge: Compilation of Videos Claiming COVID Shots Created Magnet Attraction Due to Some Funny Implantation


Below is a video compilation of several people claiming their bodies got magnetic after COVID-19 shots.

While chip implantation may seem a wild explanation for the apparent magnetism in these many videos, we are yet to know what to think of these videos and query whether there are some other magnetic properties or possible magnetism induction from the vaccines and invite more members of the public to test their shot sites.

Magnetofection Technique

A 2007 article in PubMed and another 2014 one detail the use of magnetic inducing nanoparticles to enhance DNA vaccine responses which have reported “efficiency of delivery of DNA vaccines” as being “relatively low compared to protein vaccines.” This technological approach has not been described to have been used in the current COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.

A magnetically targeted nucleic acid delivery method was developed, called magnetofection, to enhance immune responses in DNA vaccine. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) showed that freshly prepared magnetic nanoparticles were approximately 5-15 nm in size and were also fairly spherical. In-vitro transfection experiments were performed on COS-7 cells with luciferase reporter gene to evaluate the potential of the magnetic nanoparticle mediated gene delivery. BALB/c mice were immunized with HIV-1 gag DNA to assess the relative ability to prime antibody and T-cell responses. Mouse TA muscle was routinely processed and was stained with hematoxylin and eosin. The results show that gene-gun delivery of DNA is an effective method applicable for improvement in immune responses.


Superparamagnetic nanoparticle delivery of DNA vaccine

The efficiency of delivery of DNA vaccines is often relatively low compared to protein vaccines. The use of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) to deliver genes via magnetofection shows promise in improving the efficiency of gene delivery both in vitro and in vivo. In particular, the duration for gene transfection especially for in vitro application can be significantly reduced by magnetofection compared to the time required to achieve high gene transfection with standard protocols.

2. Manipulative magnetic nanomedicine: the future of COVID-19 therapy

Nanobiotechnology is emerging very promising to investigate novel methodologies for managing COVID-19 pandemic/endemic successfully [2,5]. In this direction, experts have explored the opto-electro-magnetic nanosystem to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus using a biosensing approach. Such optical, electrical, or magnetic biosensors function based on geno-sensing and immune-sensing has detected the SARS-CoV-2 virus selectively at a very low level [7,8]. These efficient-miniaturized biosensors can be operated using a smartphone and promoted for clinical application for early-stage diagnostics of COVID-19 infection. The successful integration of these SARS-CoV-2 virus sensors with AI and IoMT enables virus detection at point-of-location and sharing of bioinformatics with the medical center at the same time for timely therapeutics decision. This approach is also useful for tracking tasks and managing COVID-19 infection according to patient infection profiling. To avoid human-to-human SARS-CoV-2 virus transmission, experts have developed stimuli-responsive nanotechnology enable which can not only trap aerosol of virus size but can eradicate viruses on applying external stimulation for example nanoenable photo-sensitive virus degradation. Various types of clothes containing nanoparticles have demonstrated SARS-CoV-2 virus trapping and eradication successfully [2,9]. However, significant attention is required to increase the production and distribution of these masks for public use.
