It’s more than two years since Covid vaccines were first rolled out. Throughout that time, conspiracy theories have swirled claiming that the jabs have killed large numbers of people.

Now a viral film has taken off, supercharging this theory and creating a new online trend of tracking down stories of individual tragedies and linking them without any evidence to Covid vaccines.

In a rare interview, the film’s creator told the BBC he was “happy” to hear about the harassment of bereaved families it had incited saying… “all we’re doing is saving more lives”.

And exclusive research shared with BBC Newsnight has revealed how Twitter’s new policies might have played a role in the film’s spread.
