Leaders around the world are telling us it’s the key to pulling us out of the global pandemic we are currently living in once and for all, as lives, livelihoods and global economies are decimated by the coronavirus.

British rapper MIA tweeted last month to 600,000 followers: “If I have to choose the vaccine or chip I’m gonna choose death.”
