Did model and actress Charlbi Dean Kriek die from COVID-19 vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?!
Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Charlbi Dean Kriek Died From Vaccine SADS!
Almost immediately after news broke that Charlbi Dean Kriek died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that the model and actress died from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).
Here are just some examples circulating on social media :
No Evidence Charlbi Dean Kriek Died From Vaccine SADS!
It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.
Fact #1 : Charlbi Dean Likely Died From A Lung Infection
Charlbi Dean Kriek – a 32-year old model and actress from South Africa – passed away on Monday, August 29, 2022, at a New York Ciry hospital.
Her representatives confirmed her death on Tuesday, saying that , Charlbi Dean had been unwell and was being treated for an “unexpected, sudden illness” when she passed away.
On Wednesday, August 31, 2022, her brother – Alex Jacobs Kriek explained to Rolling Stone that Charlbi Dean died from a lung infection that may have been complicated by the loss of her spleen from an earlier accident.
According to Jacobs, Charlbi experienced some “minor” symptoms that concerned her enough that she asked her fiancé, Luke Chase Volker, to take her to the emergency room. She then died in a matter of hours – on the same day.
Her boxing trainer, Gary Stark Jr, shared that she sparred with him just three days before she died. At that time, she appeared to be in good physical health.
However, on the day she died, she cancelled her boxing lesson at the last minute. This confirms what her brother said – she did not die suddenly, but suffered some kind of illness on the day she died.
Fact #2 : She Had Her Spleen Removed Earlier
Her brother, Alex Jacobs, also shared that his sister was in a “very, very bad car accident” in 2009 that left her with a broken back and ribs. She also had to have her spleen removed.
Fact #3 : Her Cause Of Death Is Being Determined By An Autopsy
According to her brother, an autopsy is being conducted on Charlbi Dean Kriek, to determine the exact cause of her death.
In other words, Charlbi Dean Kriek’s exact cause of death is currently unknown. It does not mean she died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects” or “vaccine-induced SADS”.
Fact #4 : Her Family Did Not Blame Vaccine For Her Death
There was no official statement from her father (Johan Kriek), her mother (Joanne Kriek), her brother (Alexi Jacobs Kriek) or her fiancé, South African model Luke Volker.
However, her mother posted a tribute on Instagram:
And her brother Alexi Jacobs dedicated a poem he wrote earlier to her :
Charlbi Dean’s fiancé, Luke Chase Volker, posted a short video on Instagram, saying :
NO ONE – not her mother, brother or fiancé… not even the police or hospital mentioned vaccines as a possible cause.
So how did these anti-vaccination activists “know” she died from vaccine SADS? They didn’t. They just made it up.
Fact #5 : Her Brother Dismissed Antivax Claims
Charlbi Dean’s brother, Alex Jacobs, dismissed claims by anti-vaccination activists that she died from the COVID-10 vaccines.
Fact #6 : Charlbi Dean Kriek Was Likely Vaccinated
While there is no direct evidence that Charlbi Dean Kriek was vaccinated against COVID-19, she was residing in New York City when she fell sick and passed away.
The United States currently requires non-residents to be fully-vaccinated to travel to the US. While it is possible to travel to the United States with a vaccine exemption, it is more than likely that Charlbi Dean was fully-vaccinated.
Fact #7 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Charlbi Dean was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received all of her doses many months ago.
She cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.
Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.
The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.
Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.
Fact #8 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven
Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.
Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.
Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.
Fact #9 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective
COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.
In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.
Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.
Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!
Fact #10 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False
This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.
So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.
