A petition by Shyama Nair to stop Sinovac vaccine use for senior citizens in Malaysia is being shared on WhatsApp and Facebook.
Let’s take a look at the claims she made, and find out what the FACTS really are!
The Shyama Nair Petition To Stop Sinovac Vaccine Use
Someone called Shyama Nair started a petition called “Stopping the sinovac [sic] vaccines for senior citizens in Malaysia“.
She apparently started this petition after the National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said that the Sinovac vaccine would also be given to senior citizens.
The petition, which is being shared on Facebook and WhatsApp, comes with this description :
China has just told the world that their Sinovac Vaccine is not effective with less than 50% efficacy. Yet the Government wants to give this to those above 60 years of age, the group that is most vulnerable to a fatal outcome of the Covid 19 virus. The Government is treating senior citizens like thrash after they have availed themselves to the Pfizer vaccine. This is bad and a poor reflection of how this Government views the senior citizens who have given their all to this country and hoping to live out the rest of the days peacefully. The sinovac vaccine will give senior citizens a false sense of security and when it fails as it has been proven to fail, we will not just die, but we will suffer and die. The way the government is treating this group of the population is as if we no longer matter, and that we are a disposable part of society, and dispensable. There are so many vaccines out there. Why are we so desperate to use the discards from China. It is so frustrating that we are put in such a situation that we can’t even chose. We are made into beggars accepting the scraps of dried bread and rotting fish thrown to us. It’s deplorable that, in other countries they are safeguarding their senior citizens and here in Malaysia we are not treated as warga Mas but besi karat.
Shyama Nair Petition To Stop Sinovac Vaccine Use : The Facts
While we understand where Shyama Nair is coming from, her petition is based on misinformation and misunderstanding of vaccine efficacy.
Here are the FACTS that everyone should understand about her claims, before they sign the petition, or worse – refuse their vaccinations.
Fact #1 : Sinovac Vaccine Efficacy Is Just Over 50%
While Shyama Nair claims that the Sinovac vaccine has less than 50% efficacy, that’s just not true.
By squeezing a 6th dose out of their 5-dose vials, and massively ramping up their production, Pfizer said in January 2021 that they can potentially deliver up to 2 billion doses by the end of the year.
Moderna, on the other hand, is aiming to deliver up to 1 billion doses in 2021, after their own massive ramp-up.
Even if they can achieve their targets, that’s just 3 billion doses to vaccinate 1.5 billion people in 2021, and that’s assuming zero wastage. At best, they will cover just under 19% of the world’s population of 7.9 billion!
So it would be impractical to rely on mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna to vaccinate the world. Do we really want to wait 5 years to achieve herd immunity?
Do Not Let Perfect Be The Enemy Of Good
Here is my advice to Shyama Nair and all those who think like her – do not let perfect be the enemy of good.
Instead of scaring our senior citizens into waiting for the COVID-19 vaccine they prefer, we should be encouraging them to get the first vaccine offered to them.
Vaccines are like body armour. It doesn’t make sense to reject wearing Chinese body armour while under enemy fire, and risk your life waiting for German body armour that you prefer.
Here is our advice to EVERYONE – get vaccinated ASAP with the first COVID-19 vaccine you can get.
DO NOT WAIT for “something better”. You may get infected before you get that vaccine!
Reminding all Netizens to consider the guidelines set by Beijing’s Vaccine Prevention Center before taking any vaccine, whether for your own sake or for your family.
A gentle reminder from Hong Kong Specialist: Those who suffer stroke is not advisable to take the vaccine.
Beijing City Vaccine Prevention Center list down the requirements for vaccination:
Those with malignant tumor are not fit to be inoculated or vaccinated.
Those people taking maintenance pills for High Blood Pressure, Diabetes are not fit to vaccinate.
Those qualify for mental health disorders like Depression and anxiety is not suitable to vaccinate.
Those with hereditary diseases like Albinism are not suitable to vaccinate.
Those with unstable Cardiovascular diseases are not suitable to inoculate.
Those underwent operation such as Coronary Bypass are not fit to vaccinate.
Those who are recovering from major surgery are not fit to inoculate.
Those who used Blood products and immunosupressive drugs for the last three months are not suitable to vaccinate.
Those taking Euthyrox are not suitable to inoculate.
Pregnant women in their first to second trimester are not fit to vaccinate.
Those taking long term immunosuppressive drugs are not fit to vaccinate.
Those suffer from Moderate to severe anemia should not be inoculated.
Those taking antiviral and antibiotics drugs within three months time can be vaccinated only after one to two weeks of not taking the medicine provided that no symptoms persist.
Those with Hepatitis B and Helicobacter Pylori can’t be vaccinated.
Those people with stable high blood pressure of 140/90 below can be vaccinated.
Those with root origin from Flu prevention are prohibited to inoculate.
Those people vaccinated with Flu virus can be inoculated after quarantine of 9-14 days.
China’s Guidelines For Sinovac Vaccine : The Facts!
We checked out the claims, and here is the sweet and short verdict – this is yet another piece of FAKE NEWS.
For those who want to understand more, here are the FACTS :
Fact #1 : Beijing Vaccine Prevention Center Does Not Exist
The Chinese term actually translates to Beijing Epidemic Prevention Center, which makes far more sense than a Vaccine Prevention Center.
But either way – there is no such institution called the Beijing Vaccine Prevention Center or the Beijing Epidemic Prevention Center (北京市防疫中心).
The closest candidate is the Beijing Center of Vaccine Clinical Evaluation (北京疫苗临床评价中心).
Fact #2 : Vaccine Guidelines Were Issued By China’s National Health Commission
On 29 March 2021, China’s health authorities issued their first official COVID-19 vaccination guidelines.
But they were not issued by some Beijing institute, but China’s National Health Commission.
Fact #3 : The Real Vaccine Guidelines Contradicts Fake List
Here is a summary of the key vaccine guidelines issued by the National Health Commission.
The four conditionally approved vaccines are safe for senior citizens aged 60 and above
Senior citizens aged 60 and above should get vaccinated
Booster shots are not recommended at this stage.
It is not recommended for those under the age of 18 to get vaccinated for now.
Vaccination should be completed using the same vaccine, and not mixed.
Under special circumstances, people can use a mix of vaccines to complete their vaccination.
They completely contradict the fake list that is circulating on WhatsApp and Facebook.

Fact #4 : Hong Kong Guidelines Contradict Fake List
The Hong Kong government noted in their 19 February 2021 interim recommendations on the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine that the only risk to look out for is an allergic reaction.
Allergic reactions may occur after administration of CoronaVac. Recipients of CoronaVac should be kept for observation and monitored for a minimum of 30 minutes. Persons with a history of allergies should consult your doctor or pharmacist for advice before you receive this vaccine. A second dose of the vaccine should not be given to those who have experienced an allergic reaction to the first dose of CoronaVac.
Fact #5 : Official Sinovac Guidelines Contradict Fake List
China keeps suggesting that COVID-19 was created as a bioweapon by the US Army bio lab at Fort Detrick, Maryland.
Find out what why China wants the world to believe this, and what the FACTS really are!
China : Was COVID-19 Created In Fort Detrick Bio Lab?
For more than a year now, Chinese spokespersons and media have aggressively promoted the claim that the SARS-CoV-2 virus did not originate in Wuhan.
Instead, the virus was created as a bioweapon by the US Army at their bio lab at Fort Detrick, Maryland.
Their evidence? The fact that the CDC shut down the Fort Detrick lab on 2 August 2019 after finding “biosafety lapses” there.
But how did the SARS-CoV-2 virus get from Maryland in the United States to Wuhan, China?
They claimed that the US Army sent their soldiers to spread COVID-19 in Wuhan during the 2019 Military World Games held there from 18 to 27 October 2019.
They even spread a fake video, claiming to show an American soldier spreading the COVID-19 virus in a subway in Wuhan.
The theory heavily promoted by Chinese media and even Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian, who asked, “When did patient zero begin in the US? It might be the US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan!”
They also spread the fake story that Japanese Nobel laureate Professor Dr. Tasuku Honjo confirmed that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was created at the Fort Detrick lab.
Therefore, it is unlikely to be created in a biological lab like the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases lab at Fort Detrick; or the Wuhan Institute of Virology, for the matter.
Fact #2 : Multiple Strains Denote A Later Time Line
Viruses mutate and create new strains over time. A novel virus like SARS-CoV-2 would start with a single strain and evolve into multiple strains as it spreads globally and mutate over time.
Hence, the very fact that there are five strains in the United States would actually refute it as the source of SARS-CoV-2 – the COVID-19 coronavirus.
In fact, by analysing the genomic changes of these strains, scientists have pretty much concluded that SARS-CoV-2 did indeed originate in China.
Fact #3 : Fort Detrick Sterilisation Plant Failed
The CDC temporarily shut down the US Army lab at Fort Detrick on 2 August 2019, after finding “biosafety lapses” there.
However, that was not because viruses actually leaked from the facility, but rather :
the lab was no longer able to decontaminate wastewater from its highest security labs.
their steam sterilisation plant was damaged in a flood in May 2018, and they had been using a chemical decontamination method instead.
no disease-causing materials were found outside authorised areas

Fact #4 : Wuhan Was Epicentre Of COVID-19 Outbreak
China’s continuous suggestions that there may have been a leak at the Fort Detrick laboratory is illogical.
If SARS-CoV-2 leaked from Fort Detrick, Maryland would have been the epicentre of the initial COVID-19 outbreak, not Wuhan.
Now, this does not mean that the SARS-CoV-2 virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. It merely means the Chinese claim about Fort Detrick is nonsensical.
Why Would China Push The Fake Fort Detrick Claim?
With China’s aggressive foreign policy moves in recent years, it is not uncommon to see fake pro-China, anti-America stories being created and shared.
Many believe it’s part of a concerted attempt to burnish China’s image overseas, and drown out negative coverage of China’s controversial Belt and Road Initiative, and their aggressive moves in the South China Sea..
China has also been blamed for not handling the initial epidemic better, and unfairly – for being the origin of this new virus.
Hence, they have been trying their best to deflect blame by casting aspersions unto others, using aggressive Wolf Warrior diplomacy tactics, propaganda outlets like GlobalTimes and CTGN, and their 50 Cent Army.
Did the US Supreme Court overturn universal vaccination because the COVID-19 vaccine is not actually a vaccine?
Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!
Big Victory? US Supreme Court Overturned Universal Vaccination?
A long essay about a recent US Supreme Court decision is being shared on WhatsApp, claiming that the US Supreme Court overturned universal vaccination because the COVID-19 vaccine isn’t actually a vaccine at all.
Apparently, Senator Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and a group of scientists filed a lawsuit against Bill Gates, Dr. Fauci and Big Pharma, and they won!
A BIG VICTORY FOR FREEDOM IN THE UNITED STATES.
* The Supreme Court overturned universal vaccination. *
* – US infectious disease specialist Bill Gates, Dr. Fauci, and Big Pharma * lost a US Supreme Court case, failing to prove all of their vaccines over the past 32 years were safe for the health of citizens!
The lawsuit was filed by a group of scientists led by * Senator Kennedy *.
– Robert F. Kennedy Jr.: * “The new COVID vaccine must be avoided at all costs. I urgently draw your attention to important issues related to the next vaccination against Covid-19. For the first time in the history of vaccination, the so-called latest-generation mRNA vaccines directly interfere with the genetic material of the patient and therefore alter the individual genetic material, which is genetic manipulation, which was already prohibited and was previously considered to be a crime.*
CORONA VIRUS VACCINE IS NOT A VACCINE! *
*- WARNING !*
What has always been a vaccine?
– It was always the pathogen itself (a microbe or a virus which was killed or attenuated), that is to say weakened, and it was introduced into the body to produce antibodies.
– Not even a vaccine against the corona virus!
– It’s not that at all!
– It is part of the newest group of mRNA (mRNA) supposedly “vaccines”, once inside a human cell, mRNA reprograms normal RNA / DNA which begins to make another protein.
– In other words: * Nothing to do with traditional vaccines! *
– In other words: * It is an instrument of genetic influence. *
* – Gene weapon! *
– In other words: * They were going to destroy earthlings, and the survivors will become GMOs! *
– Following the vaccine * unprecedented mRNA: * The vaccinated will no longer be able to treat the symptoms of the vaccine in an additional way.
– Vaccinated people will have to accept the consequences, as they can no longer be cured by simply removing toxins from the human body, such as a person with a genetic defect such as: * Down syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, Turner syndrome , genetic heart failure, hemophilia, cystic fibrosis, Rett syndrome, etc.) *, because the genetic defect is eternal!
– This clearly means: * If any vaccination symptom develops after mRNA vaccination, neither I nor any other therapist can help, as * THE DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE VACCINATION WILL BE GENETICALLY DAMAGING. *

No, US Supreme Court Did Not Overturn Universal Vaccination!
The entire essay is a rambling pile of nonsensical lies about vaccination, and the mRNA vaccine against COVID-19.
Let’s break down the individual claims, and tell you what the FACTS really are :
But that had nothing to do with pharmaceutical companies, Bill Gates or even Dr. Fauci. The Supreme Court ruled that the State of New York cannot bar people from gathering in churches and synagogues during the pandemic.
Claim : Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Is A Senator Verdict : False
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is not, and has never been, a US Senator.
The writer probably confused him with his illustrious father, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968.
Claim : The Lawsuit Was Filed By Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Verdict : False
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. never filed any lawsuit that was brought before the US Supreme Court.
In July 2019, he filed a lawsuit against the state of New York, to overturn a new state law that bars parents from refusing to vaccinate their children on religious grounds.
His family actually spoke out AGAINST him, calling him “an outlier in the Kennedy family”, and pointing out that his uncle President F. Kennedy and his father, Robert F. Kennedy, both promoted vaccinations to stamp out preventable diseases.
He lost that lawsuit on 9 December 2019, after the New York state law was ruled constitutional.
That lawsuit was related to the measles outbreak, and is obviously unrelated to COVID-19, which did not come to public attention until 31 December 2019.
Is there a new G64 super spreading COVID-19 strain from India and Egypt?
Find out what’s been said about this G64 super spreader strain, and what the FACTS really are!
Claim : G64 Super Spreader COVID-19 Strain From India + Egypt!
This warning has been spreading on WhatsApp, with a link to a MalaysiaKini report called KL restaurant customer part of new cluster, lin cases report today.
CODE RED WARNING TO ALL MALAYSIAN
Stay away from Mamak shop, nasi bandar and all Indian restaurant hiring Indian workers from India utk sementara waktu, a new covid cluster in KL and potentially spread to the whole country.
Genom G64 covid 19 from india and Egypt are super spreader virus. No appropriate vaccines or treatment for these viruses at least till 2023. Escape strategy for these virus cannot be done at the moment.
G64 COVID-19 Strain From India + Egypt? Bullshit!
The viral warning has actually been circulating since August 2020 and is completely false! Here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : MalaysiaKini Labelled It Fake
Most people do not read beyond the headlines or the message, and the person who created this fake message knows that very well.
He/she intentionally inserted the link to a genuine MalaysiaKini article, to make it look like a genuine warning based on the article.
However, the article does not refer to any particular COVID-19 strain, or referred to any super spreader variant.
It only mentioned that the first two cases in the Maju cluster involved workers at a restaurant, but it is unknown if they are foreigners or locals.
An employee used fake COVID-19 test results to skip work, forcing the cafe to close and her colleagues to get tested!
Find out what happened, and why this employee could possible be sent to jail!
Employee Used Fake COVID-19 Test To Skip Work!
On 7 April 2021, Justin Tay shared how an employee at his cafe in Skudai, Johor, used fake COVID-19 test results to skip work!
The employee started work as a waitress at the cafe on Monday, 5 March 2021.
She sent her employer a text message the next day – Tuesday, 6 March 2021, claiming that she just tested positive for COVID-19, and was unable to go to work.
He immediately close the cafe, and arranged for it to be disinfected. He also notified customers who were present yesterday, and sent all 13 employees (including himself) to be tested for COVID-19.
While waiting for his test results, he was informed by the doctor that the RTK-Ag (antigen rapid test kit) produces results within 10 minutes, and that his employee’s test results was dated 4 March 2021.
That made him suspicious, so he queried the female employee. She initially claimed that she only received the result on the day she reported for work – a day after she allegedly did the test.
When he told her that he would send the results to a lawyer for advice, the female employee resigned from her job, and finally admitted that the COVID-19 test results were fake.
She apparently asked her friend to edit the positive COVID-19 test report. When you compare both reports, you can see the editing – her friend used a much larger font.
Before reporting the matter to the police, he called up her parents. The female employee and her father came to meet the cafe management, but insisted they did nothing wrong.
So Justin Tay lodged a police report, and reopened the cafe. He estimated his loss at several thousand ringgit, because the cafe was closed and he had to send everyone for COVID-19 tests.
In addition, news spread that their employee was infected, and this caused amok panic and customers to stay away.
Police : Employee With Fake COVID-19 Test Under Investigation
The Iskandar Puteri police chief, ACP Dzulkhairi Mukhtar, confirmed that they will be investigating the case under Section 420 of the Penal Code.
If convicted, the employee can face imprisonment of between 1-10 years, with whipping, and will also be liable to a fine!
420. Whoever cheats and thereby dishonestly induces the person deceived, whether or not the deception practiced was the sole or main inducement, to deliver any property to any person, or to make, alter, or destroy the whole or any part of a valuable security, or anything which is signed or sealed, and which is capable of being converted into a valuable security, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than one year and not more than ten years and with whipping, and shall also be liable to fine.
A fake DON DON DONKI giveaway is being actively shared on social media.
Please IGNORE it, and do NOT click or participate in it
Scam Alert : Fake DON DON DONKI Giveaway!
After DON DON DONKI – Japan’s biggest discount chain store – opened their first store in Malaysia, people have gone ga-ga, and scammers have taken notice.
They quickly created a fake DON DON DONKI giveaway, and many people have been sharing it on WhatsApp and Facebook.
Clicking on it leads you to a fake DON DON DONKI Brand Awareness Survey.
To the uninitiated, it may appear genuine. It has a Google domain, and there is a 100% Guarantee stamp, after all. So how can this be a scam?
Consider for a second the many genuine surveys you have done in the past. Have you ever seen a survey with just TWO questions?
This fake DON DON DONKI survey is intentionally short because the scammer doesn’t want people to quit on seeing a long survey.
In a genuine survey, you would be asked to key in your details for DON DON DONKI management to contact you.
Instead, after you submit, you are taken to what appears to be a Don Don Donki page, asking if you are a member.
This is a FAKE Don Don Donki page. You have been redirected to www.promohebat-my-76.com/cgi-bin/wingame.pl, with the string partner_pk=355.
What basically happened is that you have been tricked into this page by the scammer’s affiliate with a partner number of 355, who gets paid for every person tricked into opening this page.
Whether you choose Yes or No, you will be taken to the same page which is made to look as if you are registering for the voucher.
The truth is you are being tricked into agreeing to share your information with AP Marketing Asia Pacific Limited – a Hong Kong company that collects data to sell, or to push promotions for their clients.
If you key in your details, then you are agreeing to let them sell your email address and contact information to third-parties, as well as accept promotional offers from their clients.
In the next page, they will ask you for your mobile number, and your date of birth. This exposes you to scammers who can use this information for phishing attacks against you or your bank.
In subsequent pages, you are asked to participate in surveys for their clients like Etiqa, and then asked to participate in even more surveys and games.
Ultimately, this is nothing more than a scam to get you to participate in AP Marketing Asia Pacific Limited‘s marketing games and surveys.
You will NOT receive anything and only waste your time. Even worse, you will expose your personal information to AP Marketing’s clients, who may include other scammers.
So please WARN EVERYONE about this fake Don Don Donki giveaway!

Mount Elizabeth Hospital has officially refuted claims that their doctor had a severe reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!
Viral Fake News : Doctor Had Severe Vaccine Reaction!
In the past few days, antivaxxers and netizens have been feverishly sharing a post on Facebook and WhatsApp regarding a renown doctor who allegedly suffered a stroke after getting the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
From what we understand, the long Facebook post (now deleted) was written by a man called Bun Ngok Fong, who claimed to be the cousin of this doctor.
Mount Elizabeth Hospital labelled his claims as untrue :
We are aware of a post circulating on Facebook, alleging that one of our doctors had a severe reaction a week after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. We wish to clarify that the allegations in the post are untrue.
Doctor’s Family : Please Respect Our Privacy
The doctor’s family is asking everyone to please respect their space and privacy during this difficult time for them.
Bun Ngok Fong either had his post removed by Facebook, or has voluntarily deleted it.
Goh Meng Seng shared Mount Elizabeth Hospital’s clarification, but kept a screenshot of Bun Ngok Fong’s post up.
If you received the viral message about this doctor’s alleged adverse reaction to the Pfizer vaccine, please DO NOT forward it any further.
If necessary, you can share our fact check of the false claims. Otherwise, tell the sender that it’s fake news, and request that they stop sending it out anymore.
Did renown fertility specialist Dr. Ann Tan get a stroke from the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine?
Find out what’s the latest viral story on the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, and what the facts really are!

Claim : Dr. Ann Tan Suffered A Stroke From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine!
On or just after 25 March 2021, Bun Ngok Fong posted a message on Facebook about his cousin – the renown fertility specialist Dr. Ann Tan of Singapore.
He has since deleted it, but People’s Power Party founder Goh Meng Seng copied and reposted it, while others shared the post in WhatsApp where it went viral :
Dr Ann Tan now warded in ICU of Mount E for brain haemorrhage after taking the vaccine. Confirmed by her cousin’s FB post:
From the FB page of Bun Ngok Fong:
Warning against the Pfizer vaccine.
I am numbed, heart broken, but in prayers for my cousin, Dr. Ann, an internationally celebrated gynecologist and fertility specialist with her practice in Singapore and who brought her expertise to the other places of the world with mission to deliver hope and happiness here, there and everywhere. She is vivacious, gracious, beautiful and kind, a devoted mother of three . All this shattered for her, for us, for only a week or so after her taking the Pfizer BioNtech shot , she suffered a brain haemorrhage , thus joining the casualty list to this problematic vaccine that stands to make the parent company around US$35 billion for this year alone, a bonanza that this Big Pharma group plans to repeat upon an annual basis.
Pfizer will of course try to exonerate but cannot extricate itself from the scandal which the Western corrupt and complicit media will continue to conceal or explain away the extent of the risks that the shots entail and mitigate the bad publicity by insisting that there is no direct proof between the sudden collapse of relatively young and previously healthy physicians — as Ann’s case is no longer unique.
That the company CEO, Albert Bourla, declined to take the jab, as a morale booster if nothing else, says volumes about the efficacy and reliability of the product which in essence is genetic manipulation.
Now the European Union has proposed a vaccination passport that may not recognize other types of shots — from Cuba, Russia and China — is proof in of itself of the ploy to create immunization apartheid and compell hesitant candidates to subject themselves to a shortlist of western and still dubious injections.
In the meantime I weep for Dr. Ann and remember her seating on my side in the clan banquet about 14 months ago as we exchanged news about the children and their careers.
Missing you, Ann, so dearly.
Did Dr. Ann Tan Get A Stroke From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine? The Facts
We looked into the matter, and the many claims Bun Ngok Fong made in this Facebook post, and here is what we know so far…
Claim #1 : Dr. Ann Tan Suffered A Brain Haemorrhage
Verdict : Likely True
On 25 March 2021, the Women Fertility & Fetal Centre of the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore posted this notice, with many messages of concern by her patients :
We therefore believe that something serious had indeed happened to Dr. Ann Tan.
Naturally, the hospital will not reveal any details of her condition. We will only know for sure if and when her family publicly announces what had actually happened.
Claim #2 : Dr. Ann Tan Is Bun Ngok Fong’s Cousin
Verdict : False
In his now-deleted Facebook post, Bun Ngok Fong claimed that Dr. Ann Tan is his cousin.
However, a friend of the family and Mount Elizabeth Hospital itself clarified that he is not related to their family :
The doctor’s family has also confirmed that the writer is not related to them and has written to Facebook to have the post removed.
Goh Meng Seng shared Mount Elizabeth Hospital’s clarification, but kept a screenshot of Bun Ngok Fong’s post up.
Bun Ngok Fong (left) and Goh Meng Seng (right)
Claim #3 : Her Brain Haemorrhage Was Due To The Pfizer Vaccine
Verdict : Likely False
Bun Ngok Fong claimed that she suffered a “brain haemorrhage” about “a week or so” after taking the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
The Pfizer vaccine is not known to cause an intracerebral haemorrhage. It is known to cause a rare anaphylactic reaction, probably from the PEG (Polyethylene glycol) used to create the lipid nanoparticles that protects the mRNA vaccine.
Only one 60 year-old Japanese woman was known to have died from a brain haemorrhage three days after receiving the Pfizer vaccine. Even that case has not been confirmed to be related to the vaccine.
Tomohiro Morio, a doctor advising the government, said, “The brain haemorrhage that is suspected as a cause is relatively common among people from their 40s to their 60s, and at this time, based on examples overseas, there does not seem to be a link between brain haemorrhages and the coronavirus vaccine.”
The doctors treating Dr. Ann Tan will know if her intracerebral haemorrhage was due to other causes like a ruptured aneurysm or AVM (arteriovenous malformation).
This incident also happened at least “a week or so” after her vaccination, and is unlikely to be related to the vaccine. Even so, we should not jump to conclusions until we know more.
The opinion of this man (who is apparently living in Vancouver or Hong Kong) is not substantiated by any evidence whatsoever.
In addition, the Mount Elizabeth Hospital labelled his claims as untrue :
We are aware of a post circulating on Facebook, alleging that one of our doctors had a severe reaction a week after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. We wish to clarify that the allegations in the post are untrue.
Claim #4 : The Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine Is Problematic
Verdict : False
Every vaccine comes with a certain amount of risk. As mentioned earlier, a small number of people will get a severe allergic reaction after vaccination.
However, the claim that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is “problematic” is false.
Not only is this extremely rare, it can be easily treated with an intramuscular injection of epinephrine. That’s why people are asked to stay 30-60 minutes after getting their Pfizer vaccines.
As of 1 April 2021, over 628 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered, and a substantial number are of the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine, with very few cases of anaphylaxis.
Claim #5 : The Media Is Concealing The Risks
Verdict : False
Did you know you can actually download the FDA Briefing Document of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine?
It gives you uncensored details of their clinical trial data, so what is there for the media to conceal?
The media makes a good scapegoat for conspiracy theorists who dislike how the media consistently debunk their fake news and false narratives.
The media, for their part, are not perfect. They report on every post-vaccination death or hospitalisation, even if it has not been established that the vaccine is the cause.
Instead of shunning the media or putting them on a pedestal, apply critical thinking and wait for the actual research results.
Claim #6 : Pfizer CEO Declined To Take The Vaccine
Verdict : False
In 14 December 2020, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla told CNBC that “he and other executives will not cut the line“, as there were limited doses available and the CDC had recommended prioritising healthcare workers and long-term care residents.
Antivaxxers and Sinophiles leaped on his statement, calling it evidence he did not trust his own vaccine.
The truth is he said in the CNBC interview that, “As soon as I can, I will. The only sensitivity here, Meg, is that I don’t want to have an example that I’m cutting the line.”
Albert Bourla received his first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in mid February 2021, and his second shot on 10 March 2021.
Excited to receive my 2nd dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech #COVID19 vaccine. There’s nothing I want more than for my loved ones and people around the world to have the same opportunity. Although the journey is far from over, we are working tirelessly to beat the virus. pic.twitter.com/ES05WPBLJA
Pfizer and Modern vaccines are based on mRNA technology, which means they do NOT penetrate the cell nucleus and therefore, cannot possibly change the DNA within.
mRNA itself is also transient, and is automatically disposed by the cell after being used several times. Therefore, the spike proteins it codes for are only created during that short time, not for a lifetime.
Claim #8 : EU Vaccine Passport To Exclude Russian / Chinese Vaccines Verdict : False
You can download and read the EU proposal for a COVID-19 Digital Green Certificate. It clearly states that:
EU countries must accept other countries’ vaccination certificates “under the same conditions“
This obligation only extends to EU-approved vaccines
However, EU countries “can decide to accept other vaccines in addition” to EU-approved vaccines.
Therefore, this COVID-19 Digital Green Certificate will allow EU countries to recognise Russian and Chinese vaccines that have not been approved by the EU.
COVID-19 vaccines from Russia, China and other countries can also seek approval from the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and be automatically qualified for this “vaccine passport”.
Therefore, the claim is categorically FALSE.
Claim #9 : EU Is Promoting Vaccine Apartheid, Forcing Travellers To Use Western Vaccines
Bun Ngok Fong claimed that the EU is promoting vaccine apartheid, and forcing travellers to use Western vaccines.
As we demonstrated above, the EU COVID-19 Digital Green Certificate does no such thing. EU countries can choose to accept Chinese and Russian vaccines.
It is also only fair that the vaccine passport acceptance be reciprocal, and not open only one way.
On the other hand, China resumed processing visas in March 2021, but only if travellers are first vaccinated with Chinese COVID-19 vaccines.
We look forward to Bun Ngok Fong criticising China for promoting vaccine apartheid, and compelling people to get vaccinated with Chinese vaccines, even if they prefer Western vaccines.
We should point out that as of 2 April 2021, the trial data for all four Chinese COVID-19 vaccines have yet to be released publicly.
As we pointed out in our article on choosing COVID-19 vaccines, all approved vaccines will protect you against death and serious COVID-19 disease. But it is really dishonest for Sinophiles to falsely criticise the West for actions perpetuated by China itself.
They should be ashamed of themselves for pushing a false narrative during a global pandemic that has killed over 2.8 million people globally.

Did A Police Officer Die From Second Vaccine Dose? NO!
This is yet another piece of fake news that is being spread to scare people into not vaccinating against COVID-19.
Here is what we know about this case…
Fact #1 : The Police Officer Did NOT Die
According to Perak Chief of Police, Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid, the police officer did not die. In fact, he’s currently awake and in a stable condition.
Fact #2 : The Police Officer Had A Heart Attack
The Gerik District Police explained that the police officer was admitted to the Gerik Hospital for a heart attack.
The Perak State Health Director, Dato’ Dr. Ding Lay Ming, further explained that the police officer received his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine on 3 March 2021 at 9 AM, and left after 30 minutes of observation.
In the afternoon of the same day, he experienced felt sick and was given early treatment at the Gerik Hospital, before being transferred to the Cardiac Care Unit in the Taiping Hospital.
He was found to have had a myocardial infarct (heart attack), but is currently in a stable condition. He will be referred to IJN (National Heart Institute) for further treatment.
Fact #3 : COVID-19 Fake News Is Punishable By Fines And/Or Jail Time!
Perak Chief of Police, Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid, said that the police will take action against the owner of the Junaidah June Facebook account, which posted this fake news.
From 12 March 2021 onwards, fake news regarding COVID-19 and the Emergency proclamation is punishable by fines of up to RM 100,000 and/or up to 3 years imprisonment!
Plandemic 3 is here, and its producers promise that it will finally prove Satan’s hand in the nefarious COVID-19 vaccines!
Get a taste of what Plandemic 3 will reveal in our exclusive sneak preview!
Plandemic 3 To Prove Satan’s Hand In COVID-19 Vaccines!
Thanks to the hard work of renown coronavirus expert, Dr. Judy Mikovits and famous autism expert Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the new film will definitively reveal the nefarious Satanic plans behind the COVID-19 vaccines!
The Plandemic 3 team has kindly given us some tidbits to share with all of you. All they ask is that you SHARE and PRAY for Plandemic 3 to reach more people with the hashtag #Plandemic3!
Why Plandemic 3?
Plandemic was a hit, but the second movie – Plandemic: Indoctornation was a failure.
Many people didn’t even realise it was a new movie. President Donald Trump notably thought it was part of the original Plandemic movie.
Based on his feedback, the producers decided to go with Plandemic 3, so people like him understand that it’s a new movie.
5G Tracker In COVID-19 Vaccines
Renown coronavirus expert, Dr. Judy Mikovits, had been looking into how Big Pharma could possibly inject a 5G tracker through COVID-19 vaccines, and had her breakthrough when public vaccinations started.
Many people started reporting that they found 5G trackers implanted in their arms after they were vaccinated.
Some of these concerned citizens sent her their trackers, and after obtaining a vial of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine and the syringes they use, the intrepid Dr. Mikovits finally figured out how they did it!
Why other less eminent researchers failed to find the 5G trackers is because they looked at the vaccine. There’s no 5G tracker inside, just a special activation fluid.
The secret is inside the syringe needle, she explained. That’s why they switch the needles before injecting people!
Dr. Judy Mikovits hard at work with her microscope!
Hidden inside the needle is a super-compressed 5G tracker – deactivated so RF scanners cannot detect it.
Once injected into your arm, the activation fluid expands the tracker so it locks into your arm muscle, and activates its 5G signal.
Dr. Mikovits shared this picture of the 3 variants she found, held in length- and colour-coded microscope attachment screws to differentiate them.
They are apparently made by the Presta Corporation, based in Baltimore, but funded with research funding from Bill Gates and the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
In Plandemic 3, she will show you how the 5G tracker is cleverly hidden inside the needle, and how it gradually expands on contact with the activation fluid.
She will also show you have to cut it out of your arm, or block its signal with a copper-lined skin patch that her company will be releasing shortly.
And yes, Plandemic 3 will flash a special 50% discount code, so be sure to look out for it!
COVID-19 Is Satan’s Work
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has helped prevent autism for millions of innocent children by praying the vaccines out of them.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, he focused his considerable intellect into WHY it happened, and WHAT it really means.
In Plandemic 3, he will show you how he discovered that the coronavirus is Satan’s handiwork. Here is one example he shared with us.
After many sleepless nights calculating the different possibilities, he discovered that CORONA = 666. If this is not proof, he says, then you are blind!
Kennedy also shared how Social Distancing was Satan’s idea. He believes health authorities use this term, as a form of satanic worship.
Every time they say Social Distancing, they are praising Satan. That is also why they refuse to say Physical Distancing.
To check if your friend is a secret follower of Satan, he suggests you say physical distancing. If your friend insists on saying social distancing, he’s a Satanist!
Plandemic 3 : Where To Watch It?
Major corporations (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter) have been paid off by Big Pharma and the New World Order to block Plandemic 3 by deleting the video.
To avoid this, the producers are planning to DIRECTLY PM / DM you a link to the video.
To obtain the secret link to the Plandemic 3 video, simply post on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp groups, Telegram groups) with the hashtag #Plandemic3.
For every share of this article, with the hashtag #Plandemic3 and #CLeeYu, the Plandemic 3 team promises to sponsor the removal of a 5G tracker!
The clear air bubble under each sole contains 60 cc (60 ml) of red ink and one drop of human blood.
While some have suggested that Lil Nas X contributed said human blood, the blood was donated by members of MSCHF.
Fact #4 : Nike Sued MSCHF Over Satan Shoes
Probably due to the fake news circulating about their involvement with Satan Shoes, Nike sued MSCHF on 30 March 2021.
The Nike lawsuit, which was filed with the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York, stated that :
the Satan Shoes were produced “without Nike’s approval and authorization“,
Nike “do not have a relationship with Lil Nas X or MSCHF“, and
“Nike is in no way connected with this project”.
Their concern about being boycotted over false claims of involvement with Satan Shoes is apparent :
“There is already evidence of significant confusion and dilution occurring in the marketplace, including calls to boycott Nike in response to the launch of MSCHF’s Satan Shoes based on the mistaken belief that Nike has authorized or approved this product.”
Nike is asking the court to immediately stop MSCHF from fulfilling the orders for those shoes, and requested a jury trial to seek damages.
Notably, Nike did not include Lil Nas X in their lawsuit.
Fact #5 : Only 666 Pairs Were Produced
It is true that 666 pairs of Satan Shoes were produced. All but one were sold, allegedly in less than one minute.
The last – 666th pair – would be made available to a social media user, chosen by Lil Nas X from those who shared his tweet.
Fact #6 : They Were Sold For US$1,018
It is true that each pair of Satan Shoes were sold for US$1,018 – a reference to Luke 10:18 in the Bible :
KJV : And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
NIV : He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lighting from heaven.”
Fact #7 : They Were Featured In Montero (Call Me By Your Name)
These shoes were featured in Lil Nas X’s latest song – Montero (Call Me By Your Name).
In the music video, he can be seen sliding down a stripper pole from Heaven to Hell, wearing a pair of these Satan Shoes.
Did female parishioners go down on an evangelical pastor in Brazil, for his holy milk?
Find out what’s this holy milk business all about, and what the FACTS really are!
Parishioners Go Down On Pastor For Holy Milk?
This viral news has been circulating in several forms over the years. And it keeps getting shared as something new.
Many people just share the pictures, with some comments about the pastor offering his female parishioners his holy milk.
This is the “full version” that some are sharing, and is being posted on various “viral websites”.
Pastor Makes Females Give Oral In Church, Says To Get Holy Milk
Sao Paulo: An evangelical pastor has been arrested for raping his faithful, after convincing them that his reproductive organs contained “holy milk” which they need for holy healing.
Sobrino Valdeci Picanto, an evangelical pastor from Brazil, persuaded his followers that he practiced his strange beliefs because it was the way he preached the word, saying that his ‘milk’ was sacred.
And this pastor said his reproductives was blessed and that “the Lord had consecrated with divine milk of the Holy Spirit” and of course, had to go around evangelizing.
“He convinced us that only God could come into our lives through the mouth”, a follower said,
“Often, after worship, Pastor Valdeci asked us to do perform oral acts on him until the Holy Spirit came through seed and delivered funds to the church.”
“He gave as an excuse that his reproductive organs had been consecrated with “divine seminal fluid of the Holy Spirit.” Valdecir came to abuse some elderly, and defends himself by saying that ‘he had an encounter with Jesus in a brothel and gave him the mission of spreading the sacred semen throughout the state, beginning with the faithful Apore Assembly, of which he is responsible’.
Denise Pinheiro, delegate of the region, said, “Valdecir was caught red-handed while rubbing his reproductive units in the face of a local merchant, which promised to make more sales in her business due to the divine liquid.”
“When we acted Valdecir offered no resistance and even asked if I wanted to be part of the kingdom of heaven on the way to the police station.”
Pastor Valdeci’s Holy Milk : The Truth
The truth is this is just a fake story, created by a “satire” website, and reposted by many viral websites for the purpose of getting page views.
Here are the reasons why this is just another fake story…
Fact #1 : Sobrino Valdeci Picanto Does Not Exist
There is no Brazilian named Sobrino Valdeci Picanto as far as we can tell, much less an evangelical pastor called Sobrino Valdeci Picanto. For an evangelical priest, he seems to have an extremely focused and limited digital footprint.
There are over 4,300 references to “Sobrino Valdeci Picanto” in Google and every single one of them referred to the same fake story.
More importantly, none of them were from a credible source like O Globo, The Rio Times, or even tabloids like Super Notícia.
Fact #2 : That Lady Ate Grass, Not Holy Milk
The picture showing a lady about to puke her guts out, is actually a picture of a South African lady who just ate grass on the orders of her pastor.
In January 2014, Pastor Lesego Daniel ordered his congregation to get on their knees and eat grass to “be closer to God”.
“God is at work and His people are testifying right now at the farm. TO GOD BE THE GLORY.”
After they ate the grass outside Rabboni Centre Ministries in Garankuwa (just north of Pretoria), he stomped on them until they vomited.
Fact #3 : The Lady In Screenshot Is A Porn Star
The “leaked video” does not exist, and the lady in the “screenshot” is actually a porn star called Tiffany Six.
The picture was a crop from a screenshot from one of her porn movies.
Fact #4 : It Was Created By Jesus Manero
This fake story was created by Victor Berriel, who posted it on the Brazilian satire blog, Jesus Manero on 11 January 2012.
The pastor in the original version was actually called “Valdecir Picanto Sobrinho“, not “Sobrino Valdeci Picanto”.
Here is a screenshot of the original Jesus Manero article, in Portuguese.
Did this doctor die from the painkiller, Diclofenac, after getting her COVID-19 vaccination?
Find out what happened, and what the FACTS really are!
Claim : This Doctor Died From Painkiller After COVID-19 Vaccination!
This is the message that has gone viral on WhatsApp recently :
Dr. Hariharini Md died because she was injected Diclofenac by her husband Doctor after Covid Vaccination, so pain killers should not taken after Covid Vaccination. Valuable information
This young doctor Hariharini sadly passed away today following developing severe anaphylaxis to Ini. Diclofenac which was given to her by her husband at home for myalgia following Covid vaccination.
She died at Meenakshi Mission Hospital, Madurai after a brief battle in ICU.
She was doing MD Anaesthesia at Madurai Medical College and was married 4 months ago. Her husband is doing MS Gen Surg at Madurai Medical College.
She belongs to the 2012 Batch from Thanjavur Medical College.
Any type of painkiller especially diclofenac sodium in tablet or injectable form is NOT AT ALL Advisable after getting vaccinated.
The fever or body pain or pain at site of vaccine is common and a body response to the vaccine.
Kindly share with all those who have taken the vaccine or going to take.
The Doctor Died From Painkiller After COVID-19 Vaccination, But…
Dr. Hari Harini did indeed die after being injected with the painkiller Diclofenac, after she was vaccinated against COVID-19.
However, her death had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine at all. Here are the facts of her tragic death…
Fact #1 : She Was Vaccinated A Month Earlier
Dr. Hari Harini received her first dose of the Covishield* vaccine on 5 February 2021.
Her husband only injected her with Diclofenac on 5 March 2021 – a month later, when she complained of a fever and body pain.
* Covishield is the brand name of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India.
Fact #2 : Fever + Muscle Pain From Vaccine Only Last A Few Days
Fever and muscle pain are your body’s natural initial response to vaccines, and they last only a few days. Generally just a day or two.
Therefore, the fever and muscle pain Dr. Hariharini experienced a month later, had nothing to do with the vaccine.
Fact #3 : She Fell Unconscious Within Hours Of Diclofenac Injection
Dr. Harini started vomiting and fell unconscious within hours of her husband injecting her with Diclofenac.
She was rushed to a nearby hospital for medical attention, and then to a tertiary care hospital, before being brought to the Meenakshi Mission Hospital.
According to Dr. Kannan – the Medical Administrator of Meenakshi Mission Hospital, when she arrived, she was hypoxic, with a Glasgow Coma Score of 3 – the lowest possible score.
They could not revive her, and she passed away on 11 March 2021, after being on the ventilator for 4-5 days.
Fact #4 : Diclofenac Can Cause Severe Anaphylaxis
Diclofenac – a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID) – can cause severe anaphylactic reactions when injected, infused, or taken orally.
This side effect is rare, but can quickly turn deadly, especially if it was injected intramuscularly or intravenously infused.
The anaphylactic shock, when it happens, can be counteracted with an intramuscular injection of adrenaline.
Fact #5 : Her Autopsy Confirmed The Anaphylactic Shock
An autopsy was performed on Dr. Hari Harini and the provisional diagnosis was “hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy due to anaphylactic shock“.
In other words, she suffered from brain damage from a lack of oxygen supply caused by a severe allergic reaction.
Fact #6 : Painkillers Could Dampen Vaccine Efficacy
Vaccines work by tricking your body into thinking that there is a real infection, triggering an immune response that cause “side effects” like injection site pain, fever and muscle aches.
These side effects are really your body’s natural immune response to any infection, and are therefore welcome signs that the vaccines are doing their jobs.
Research have shown that certain painkillers may dampen the body’s response to vaccines. One study even showed that NDAIDs reduce the body’s cytokine and antibody response to an actual COVID-19 infection.
That is likely why the US CDC recently updated its guidance on March 16, 2021, to :
avoid taking painkillersBEFORE getting vaccinated against COVID-19
treat post-vaccination fever by drinking plenty of fluids and dressing lightly
treat pain and discomfort with a cool and wet washcloth, and using or exercising the arm
take over-the-counter painkillers after COVID-19 vaccination, with your doctor’s advice
Unless you really need to, try to avoid taking any painkiller for the fever or muscle ache.
Did the New York Times rank four Chinese COVID-19 vaccines as the safest in the world?
Find out what recently went viral, and what the FACTS really are!
Did NYT Rank 4 Chinese Vaccines As Safest In The World?
Sinophiles have been excitedly sharing on email and WhatsApp, this amazing piece of news :
Report by The New York Times on Feb 5, 2021.
In the safety ranking, the top four are all Chinese vaccines:
1. Sinopharm (China)
2. Sinovac (China)
3. Kexing (China)
4. Can Sino (China)
5. AstraZeneca (UK)
6. Pfizer (United States and Germany)
7. Modena (United States)
8. Johnson & Johnson (United States)
9. Novavax (United States)
10. Satellite 5 (Russia)
Sinopharm has two vaccines, ranking first and second respectively.
China has exported more than 500 million doses of vaccines to more than 50 countries around the world, and it is estimated that hundreds of millions of people have been vaccinated. And China’s vaccine accident rate is lower and safer.
As reported by Western media, many wealthy people in Britain fly to the UAE to vaccinate Chinese national medicine.
It appears to be an English translation of this original Chinese post by a Facebook user called Tai Shing Suen.
NO, NYT Did NOT Rank 4 Chinese Vaccines As Safest In The World
The posts above are FALSE and intentionally misleading. And here are the facts…
Fact #1 : It Was An Opinion Piece, Not An Actual NYT Article
The posts included a New York Times link, but it was to an opinion piece by Achal Prabhala and Chee Yoke Ling – an Indian public health activist and a Malaysian public interest lawyer.
It was NOT an actual article by any New York Times writer or correspondent. Neither was it endorsed by the New York Times.
Fact #2 : There Was No Safety Ranking Of Vaccines
The opinion piece did not rank the safety of any vaccine.
In fact, it pointed out that the conflicting trial results for the CoronaVac vaccine from Sinovac, and noted that “China’s and Russia’s self-serving propaganda campaigns touting their respective vaccines only increased wariness“.
Instead of praising Chinese vaccines as the safest in the world, the two writers are merely asking health authorities to “start trusting other countries’ vaccines“, because there is simply not enough vaccines from Western countries to supply the world.
Fact #3 : The NYT Refuted The Claim
On 10 March 2021, The New York Times published three tweets refuting the false claims.
We are aware of misinformation circulating on WhatsApp, which falsely ranks the safety of worldwide coronavirus vaccines and attributes this list to a report published by The New York Times.
This message is misleading and untrue. The New York Times did not publish this list, our reporting has not suggested that Chinese vaccines are superior to vaccines produced elsewhere, nor have we published claims that China has exported more than 500 million doses.
Our understanding of the effectiveness and safety of vaccines is published in The New York Times Coronavirus Vaccine Tracker. It is evolving, nuanced, and regularly updated to reflect current scientific evidence.
Fact #4 : No Phase 3 Trial Results Published Yet
So far, Chinese vaccine manufacturers have shied from publishing their Phase 3 trial data. Instead, they chose to issue press releases.
For example, on 5 February 2021, Sinovac announced the results of their CoronaVac Phase 3 trials from Brazil and Turkey, without releasing the actual data.
China promptly approved the public use of CoronaVac the very next day. This would not be possible for vaccines approved in the US and Europe.
We should point out that Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Oxford-AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and even Russia’s Gamaleya Institute have released Phase 3 trial data of their vaccines for peer review.
Fact #5 : Doses Ordered, Not Delivered
The post claimed that “China has exported more than 500 million doses of vaccines to more than 50 countries around the world, and it is estimated that hundreds of millions of people have been vaccinated.”
The truth is Chinese vaccine manufacturers received ORDERS for about 500 million doses of their vaccines from about 45 countries.
They are actually a long way from delivering (exporting) those 500 million vaccine doses, and certainly hundreds of millions of people have NOT been vaccinated with Chinese COVID-19 vaccines.
Fact #6 : China Purchased 100 Million Doses Of Pfizer Vaccine
Despite the claims of Chinese vaccine superiority and approving FOUR domestically developed and produced vaccines, it has vaccinated very few of its population.
China only planned to vaccinate 50 million essential workers by mid-February – less than 4% of its population, even as it exports millions of doses overseas.
Did Pfizer design their vaccine to turn the COVID-19 pandemic into an endemic, so they can make A LOT MORE money?
Find out what’s going on, and what the facts really are!
Was Pfizer Vaccine Designed To Make COVID-19 Endemic?
A WhatsApp message linking to a Kim Iversen video posted on 17 March 2021 has gone viral on WhatsApp, with this alarming warning :
The truth is out. Pfizer Executive admits that they their vaccine is not designed to end the pandemic but to turn it into an endemic so that the demand of their vaccines will continue forever and give them the opportunity to make a lot of money selling their vaccine. Once the pandemic becomes an endemic, just like the flu, all those who have already been vaccinated will need to continue to receive a booster every year or so.
Now that you are up to speed, let’s see what the facts really are!
Pfizer Vaccine Designed To Make COVID-19 Endemic? Bullshit!
We watched the Kim Iversen episode where she made those claims, so you wouldn’t have to.
Now, let’s address the claims in the viral message and her video one by one, so you have the FACTS.
Claim #1 : Pfizer Caught Saying COVID-19 Will Turn Endemic
Verdict : FALSE
Caught? Pfizer CFO and Executive VP of Global Supply, Frank A. D’Amelio openly said this in a virtual global healthcare conference, and it was reported publicly.
The company anticipates a “significant opportunity” for its vaccine “from a demand perspective” and “from a pricing perspective” as it shifts “from pandemic to endemic”.
How is that the definition of “caught” when he publicly made those comments?
That’s just Kim Iversen trying to hoodwink you into thinking that there is something nefarious afoot.
The truth is scientists across the world believe that SARS-CoV-2 will likely become an endemic virus, as this Nature survey from February 2021 shows.
Claim #2 : Pfizer Excited COVID-19 Will Turn Endemic
Verdict : FALSE
Kim Iversen also claimed that Pfizer is excited that COVID-19 will turn endemic.
Nowhere in the article (which you can read here) was it mentioned that Pfizer executives were excited about the pandemic becoming an endemic situation.
The truth is he was merely telling an analyst that there is an opportunity for Pfizer to increase their vaccine prices as demand drops when COVID-19 pandemic shifts into an endemic situation.
And while Kim Iversen makes it sound like an endemic situation is what Pfizer is aiming for, it is not something any pharmaceutical company is capable of.
The truth is our refusal to quickly vaccinate ourselves will be the reason why COVID-19 could end up becoming endemic.
Claim #3 : Pfizer COMIRNATY Was Developed At The Behest Of The US Government
Verdict : FALSE
Kim Iversen claimed that the Pfizer COMIRNATY (BNT162b2) vaccine was developed at the behest of the US government.
The truth is the BNT162b2 vaccine was developed by BioNTech SE – a German company, long before the Trump Administration came up with Operation Warp Speed.
And here is the zinger – Pfizer and BioNTech declined to join Operation Warp Speed, and BioNTech was funded by the German government to a tune of $445 million.
The BionTech COMIRNATY vaccine was really created in Germany by Germans of Turkish descent, and funded by German money. The US government had ZERO involvement.
BioNTech founders – Uğur Şahin and Özlem Türeci
Claim #4 : Big Pharma Makes MORE Money In COVID-19 Endemic
Verdict : FALSE
At around the 5:53 mark, Kim claimed that Big Pharma hopes that COVID-19 doesn’t end, so that they can make money off these vaccines.
By preventing COVID-19 using vaccines, Big Pharma actually loses out on a lot of money that could be made treating patients with COVID-19.
Think of how much money we already spent on ventilators, and expensive drugs with very limited effect like baricitinib and remdesivir.
Big Pharma stands to make MORE MONEY if vaccines did not exist, or were delayed.
She also does not understand that there are far fewer infections in an endemic.
So yes, Big Pharma may make more money from their vaccines, but they will lose a lot more money that could have been made from treating COVID-19.
Claim #5 : Big Pharma Has No Desire To Cure COVID-19
Verdict : FALSE
In a rambling monologue, that goes off-the-rail at certain points, Kim claimed at around the 5:55 mark that Big Pharma has no desire to cure COVID-19, AIDS, and cancer.
She should stop talking about medicine since she knows so little about it.
Vaccines are NEVER designed to cure a disease. They are designed to PREVENT the disease from occurring in the first place.
That is why we take the COVID-19 vaccine before we get it, instead of after – so we have a better chance of preventing it!
Claim #6 : Big Pharma Didn’t Even Try To End COVID-19
Verdict : FALSE
In her rambling monologue, Kim then asked, did Big Pharma even try to end COVID-19?
Seriously? Did she not read the news, and see how many vaccine candidates were developed? Or how many potential therapeutics were investigated?
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were developed and certified for use in less than a year after the pandemic began, and they offered 94%~95% protection against COVID-19.
Why don’t Kim tell us what SHE did to end COVID-19? What did ANYONE ELSE do to end COVID-19? Who else does she believe would be better at ending COVID-19?
Claim #7 : You Can Still Spread COVID-19 After Vaccination
Verdict : MISLEADING
Kim then claimed that those who were vaccinated must continue to wear face masks and socially distance themselves because they can still spread COVID-19.
That’s misleading because the advice was based on 3 reasons :
it was partly precautionary in nature *,
it takes weeks to build up your immunity after vaccination,
the vaccine is not 100% efficacious, so a small number of people can still get COVID-19.
* The studies had not looked into whether the vaccines can prevent transmission, so they are advising vaccinated people to maintain the same precautions, JUST IN CASE.
It makes sense to tell people to continue taking precautions until herd immunity is achieved when the vast majority (80% or higher) of the population is vaccinated.
Claim #8 : Vaccinated People Have To Double Down On Precautions
Verdict : FALSE
At around the 8:50 mark, Kim surmised that the vaccines cannot protect others, and that people have to “double down” on precautions.
That is simply NOT TRUE. Those who are vaccinated against COVID-19 do NOT have to double down on their precautions.
I think it would be instructive at this point to share this picture of Jude Law in the movie, Contagion.
Claim #9 : Falling COVID-19 Cases Not Related To Vaccine
Verdict : FALSE
At 9:25, Kim claimed that no matter what the COVID-19 vaccination rate is like, the cases are falling.
She used the example of Israel with almost 100% vaccination rate, but has the same number of cases as Portugal, which only vaccinated 10% of their population.
She conveniently neglected to mention that Portugal has been under a nationwide lockdown since 15 January 2021! Probably because she earlier mocked lockdowns as useless…
On the other hand, Israel eased lockdown restrictions THREE TIMES since 7 February 2021, and the third stage easing even opened up tourist attractions and gatherings of up to 50 people!
Claim #10 : Test Vaccine Effectiveness By Jabbing People In Southern Hemisphere
Verdict : FALSE
At the 10:20 mark, Kim Iversen tells us that the only way to test the effectiveness of these vaccines is to start jabbing people in the Southern Hemisphere.
No, Kim. You perform what’s called a randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled trial, which was what ALL certified vaccines have undergone!
CoronaVac was tested in Brazil, and Novovax NVX-CoV2373 was tested in Australia.
There are also ongoing trials of those vaccines and even Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines as they are deployed in other Southern Hemisphere countries like Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia.
So Kim was either being extremely ignorant, or intentionally deceptive, about what’s being done to determine vaccine effectiveness.
Claim #11 : Australia + New Zealand Have Few / No Cases Because It’s Summer!
Verdict : FALSE
Kim Iversen apparently thinks that COVID-19 spread in Australia and New Zealand is super low or zero because it’s summer over there right now!
OMFG, the stupidity of her monologue on COVID-19 in summer and winter. Many tropical countries – where it’s hot and sunny most of the year – have been hit hard by COVID-19.
New Zealand has actually secured enough Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to fully vaccinate their population.
Australia, on the other hand, is vaccinating its population with the Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines at the moment.
Claim #12 : New Zealand Stop Vaccinating Due To South African Variant
Verdict : FALSE
At 11:20, Kim claimed that New Zealand stopped vaccinating their population, because the vaccines won’t work on the South African variant.
That’s simply FALSE, because New Zealand continues to vaccinate its population using the Pfizer vaccine.
While the Pfizer vaccine appears to be less effective against the South African variant (B.1.351), it still offered “robust” protection against that variant.
She probably conflated New Zealand with South Africa, which halted their use of the AstraZeneca vaccine after a study showed “disappointing” results against the South African variant.
Claim #13 : Kim Iversen Is Not An Antivaxxer
Verdict : FALSE
Sorry, Kim, but you are an antivaxxer. You are actively telling people LIES about the COVID-19 vaccines!
You tell people that they should “know the data, know the research, know the reality“, when you yourself are either extremely IGNORANT about the data, research and reality, or are intentionally MISLEADING people about them.
Even when you talked people about your 94 year old grandmother, you point out that at her age, she isn’t concerned about “long term side effects”, suggesting that there are any.
Tell us, Kim – WHAT LONG TERM SIDE EFFECTS do these vaccines have???
Claim #14 : You Have To Keep Getting The COVID-19 Vaccine
Verdict : FALSE
At 13:30, she claimed that they are saying that you have to keep getting it again and again, like the flu shot.
That is a POSSIBILITY that health officials have said, due to the fact that COVID-19 has spread so far and wide, and the fact that it’s mutating to form new variants.
However, we call it false, because that was NOT what the Pfizer executives are saying. Nowhere in that article did any Pfizer executive say that the vaccine must be “taken again and again and again”.
The truth is the SARS-CoV-2 virus has the opportunity to mutate to form new variants every time it infects someone.
So the best way to prevent mutations and an endemic situation is to VACCINATE EVERYONE as quickly as possible!
Claim #15 : COVID-19 Is Not Dangerous For Many People
Verdict : FALSE
At around the 13:50 point, she claims that like the flu, COVID-19 is not dangerous for many people. So perhaps that’s why most people feel like they don’t need the vaccine.
We should point out that as of 20 March 2021, 2.71 million people have died from COVID-19, and that number will not abate for many more months to come.
In comparison, influenza – the flu – kills between 290~650,000 people per year.
Based on those numbers, COVID-19 is, on average, at least 4.8X more likely to KILL you than the flu.

Claim : You Must Scan MySejahtera Every Hour At Cafe / Restaurant!
On 13 March 2021, two different messages started going viral on WhatsApp.
They both claim that we must all scan MySejahtera every hour, if we are eating or drinking in a cafe, coffee shop or restaurant.
You must remember this and share. ! If u eat in a restaurant or any outlet n spend over an hour there u must scan My Sejathera again. The same goes for drinking in a restaurant.

Don’t spend our innocent money on fine again. Come on our money are hard earned. We must be alert.
Attention everyone! The same goes for drinking in the coffee shop or restaurant. You have to scan every hour, because the coffee shop or restaurant can only stay for one hour. Many people don’t know this. Remember to tell your family and friends the news, and don’t let authority to fine you.
No, There Is No Need To Scan MySejahtera Every Hour At Cafe / Restaurant!
After checking out the latest SOPs, we can confirm that there is NO NEED to scan MySejahtera every hour at any coffee shop, cafe, restaurant or eatery.
YouTube will soon withhold up to 30% of income from non-US creators as tax for the United States!
Find out whether you will be double-taxed, and how much income non-US YouTube creators will lose!
YouTube To Tax Non-US Creator Income By Up To 30%!
On 10 March 2021, YouTube creators started getting this email :
We’re reaching out because Google will be required to deduct U.S. taxes from payments to creators outside of the U.S. later this year (as early as June 2021). Over the next few weeks, we’ll be asking you to submit your tax info in AdSense to determine the correct amount of taxes to deduct, if any apply. If your tax info isn’t provided by May 31, 2021, Google may be required to deduct up to 24% of your total earnings worldwide.
Yes, the alert says that up to 24% of your total worldwide earnings may be deducted, but the actual deduction could be as high as 30%.
It all depends on which bracket you fall into :
Those Who Submit US Tax Info
Foreign creators : 24% to 30% withholding tax, unless your country has a tax treaty with the US.
US creators : 0% withholding tax, because they have to pay taxes on their total income
Those Who Do NOT Submit US Tax Info
Business account (Foreign) : 30% withholding tax of US earnings
Business account (US Resident) : 24% of total worldwide earnings
Individual account (Foreign + US) : 24% of total worldwide earnings
This change only impacts the earnings of non-US YouTube creators, since US creators are already paying taxes on their income.
Why Are Non-US Residents Getting Taxed On US Income?
You may not be a US citizen or resident, but the US government requires income generated in the US to be taxed.
Since they cannot tax your income like they would an actual US resident, they require companies to withhold a portion of your US income as tax.
The general idea is that as long as you make money in the US, or from US residents, you must pay tax on that income.
Does This Mean Non-US Residents Will Be Double-Taxed?
So we came up with our own scenarios of 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% US traffic. For simplicity, we eliminated ”discounts” eligible to countries with US tax treaties.
This table we created shows the maximum US withholding tax you have to pay, with a monthly YouTube income of US$1,000.
Tax Deducted From
% of US Traffic
Did not submit tax info (24% worldwide)
Individual with Tax Info (24% US income)
Business with Tax Info (30% US income)
And this table shows how much income you will receive, after deducting the US tax, from a YouTube income of US$1,000.
Income Per $1,000
After Tax Deduction
% of US Traffic
Did not submit tax info (24% worldwide)
Individual with Tax Info (24% US income)
Business with Tax Info (30% US income)
There is no doubt that this is a massive tax that is going to cut deeply into the income of every non-US YouTube channel, because it is a non-progressive flat tax, with no deductions.
What Can You Do About This US Tax By YouTube?
This withholding tax is going to irk a lot of YouTubers who have never stepped foot in the US, or received any benefit from the US government.
More so for non-US creators in countries without a double tax treaty with the US, because they would get double-taxed.
YouTube creators may be incentivised to target non-US viewers by producing more localised content, but ultimately, US traffic still pays the best. So we don’t see shifting focus away from US viewers as a good strategy.
Unfortunately, there is nothing anyone can do but bite down and bear the pain, on top of what has already been a terrible 2020 and 2021.
But if you are ever in the US and get some shit about being a foreigner, I suppose you can send them this smackdown, “I have every right to be here! I pay taxes too!“.

Is an Indian doctor’s diary and advice on the side effects of the Covaxin vaccine genuine?
Take a look at the viral post on Covaxin side effects, and what the FACTS really are!
Doctor’s Diary On Covaxin Side Effects : A Viral Sensation
An Indian doctor’s diary on the Covaxin vaccine’s side effects, and his advice on how to deal with them, has gone viral on social media…
What’s amazing is that it’s gone viral even in countries where the Covaxin vaccine, is not, and will likely never be available!
A doctor’s report from his diary on his own health after receiving Covaxin vaccination
(Save for your reference till vaccination is done)
Diary for 2 days
I got my self vaccinated today (25/01/2021) at 11:25 am, on the left upper side of the arm. I had no side effects till 10:30 pm.
I had my dinner at 8:00 pm and I was all fine till 10:30 pm with no side effects, I went to bed around the same time. At 11:30 pm, while I was still lying in the bed, pain started at the vaccination site, which wasn’t before. I had a slight chill and my temperature started rising, at 12:30 am. I measured my temperature and I was having 99.4*F. As expected, along with the temperature started the rest of the side effects. I had bodyache, warmness in my eyes, neck pain. Pain at the vaccination site became worse and I also had slight choking in my throat.
Throughout the night I was restless, could not sleep much, my temperature at 2:00 am was 100.4*F. I kept myself observing closely.
I was happy though, as all these side effects indicated that the vaccination was successful and my body is giving robust response.
I slept around 4:00 am got up at 6:00 am, feeling drained, my temperature was again 100.4*F at 6:30 am. Throughout the day I had fever ranging between (99.7*F-100.2*F) body ache, pain at vaccination site, sore throat, mild cold. In the evening, around 6:30 pm, my temperature was 99.3*F, pain slightly reduced at the vaccination site, some relief was also observed in my sore throat.
I had my dinner at 8:30 pm and went to bed at 10:30 pm, before bedtime my temperature was 99.2*F.
I woke up at 6:00 am, feeling quite well, body temperature was 98.7*F, pain at vaccination site grossly reduced, pain only felt when I press my vaccination site with my hands, sore throat, neck pain gone.
All these side effects were like having mini-Covid symptoms.
Importantly, the whole batch of the doctors who got vaccinated the same day kept on sharing their side effects within our group and about 80-90% of us had common side effects as mentioned above.
The other symptoms which my colleagues had.
1. Dizziness, at the time of administering the vaccination and afterwards as well.
2. Rise in blood pressure.
I am sharing with you the first-hand experience which we doctors had at the time and after vaccination. You all will be experiencing the same, whenever you get vaccinated, so do not get anxious, as you all now, know the side effects.
Better star this message till you get vaccinated, delete it, after vaccinated.
Q. What did I do to overcome the side effects of vaccination
1. I kept myself well hydrated, drank 3-4 litres of warm water, apart from warm water had hot soup 400 ml each time, 4 times a day. (Tomato, Carrot, Spinach & Ginger soup). Keeping oneself hydrated after vaccination is a Guru Mantra, to get well soon.
2. Meals-Dalia, Khichdi, Sooji, Salad, Papaya, Apple (peeled).
3. To wean off the side effects, one can take a paracetamol tablet, but I did not take one. I relied on my body’s defence/response.
Other important points
1. Please get vaccinated, whenever your turn comes. Do not skip your turn, otherwise you will have to wait for long. Do not put your work or any other engagements before vaccination.
2. There are two doses of vaccination with 28 days apart, after the second dose of vaccination you will be issued a certificate that you have been successfully vaccinated.
3. You will receive all the messages on your registered mobile number, the date and the time slot when are you going to be vaccinated.
4. Please do not wear any perfume on the day of vaccination.
5. Do not allow alcohol rub on your arm at the time of vaccination and after vaccination.
6. Please do not consume alcohol 10 days before and 10 days after the vaccination.
7. Individuals with high BP should monitor their BP regularly after vaccination.
8. Please remember, even after vaccination we all are expected to wear masks, maintain social distancing and wash hands.
I will receive my second dose whenever I receive message on my registered mobile number.
Aftermath of my vaccination experience closes here, as I am feeling better and back to normal.
Fact Check Of Doctor’s Diary On Covaxin Side Effects
There’s no way to tell if the viral diary was actually written by a doctor, since it’s unsigned and not attributed to anyone. So we cannot verify his/her account.
However, we can fact-check a few interesting points, claims and advice in that viral account. Let’s see what the FACTS really are…
Fact #1 : India Uses The Metric System
Interestingly, the writer recorded his/her body temperature in Fahrenheit, instead of Celsius.
Like the vast majority of the world, India uses the metric system, and an actual Indian doctor would use Celsius.
Fahrenheit is only used in the United States, Belize, Palau, the Bahamas and the Cayman Islands – none of which has the Covaxin vaccine.
Fact #2 : The Writer Use Terms Doctors Generally Won’t
Generally, doctors will not use terms like vaccination site, temperature started rising, warmness in eyes, rise in blood pressure, or mini-Covid symptoms.
The proper terms, which normal people would have understood, would have been injection site, fever, hypertension or increased blood pressure, or COVID-like symptoms.
Fact #3 : How High Was Their Blood Pressure?
The writer claimed that his/her medical colleagues reported “rise in blood pressure”, without stating how much higher.
This is important, because a significant increase in blood pressure is defined as an increase in systolic blood pressure of greater than 20 mm Hg, or an increase in diastolic blood pressure of greater than 10 mm Hg.
If the writer is an actual doctor, and his colleagues only reported slightly elevated blood pressure, he/she should have written it off as irrelevant, or normal physiological variances.
Blood pressure can also temporarily increase for all sorts of perfectly normal reasons – smoking, caffeinated drinks, anxiety, or even mild exertion before the reading was taken.
A single elevated BP reading is not indicative of the blood pressure actually being high. In fact, blood pressure readings are only accurate if you follow these rules :
you did not drink a caffeinated beverage or smoke in the last 30 minutes.
you did not rest (sit quietly) for at least 5 minutes
you are seated with your arm rested, so that your elbow is about heart level
you did not talk during the measurement
there is a difference of less than 5 mm Hg between two readings taken consecutively.
Fact #4 : Dizziness During Injection
Dizziness during injection is not a side effect of the Covaxin vaccine, because it’s in the process of being injected into the body, and thus have no effect yet.
Is it true that Archie – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son – was denied the title of Prince and lost his security protection because of his skin colour?
Take a look at the Duchess of Sussex’s shocking claims, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : Archie Lost Prince Title, Security Over Colour?
In Prince Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah, she made shocking claims of racism about the British royal family.
There were, for example, “several conversations” by members of the royal family about Archie’s skin colour – “what that would mean and what that would look like”.
She also claimed that they were told that the royal family did not want Archie to have the title of Prince, saying “They were saying they didn’t want him to be a prince … which would be different from protocol and that he wasn’t going to receive security”
Meghan also implied that it might be a case of “the first member of colour in this family not being titled in the same way that other grandchildren would be.”
Truth : Archie Is Not Entitled To Title Of Prince Or Security
We do not know if any member of the royal family actually told the Duke and Duchess of Sussex that their son cannot be a Prince because of his skin colour.
However, we do know for a fact that her son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, is not entitled to the title of Prince.
We also know that the lack of the Prince title does not affect his security protection.
Here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : 1917 Decree Limits Titles Of Prince + Princess
King George V issued a decree in 1917, which limits the titles of Prince and Princess to :
the children of the monarch,
the children of the monarch’s sons, and
the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales
By that decree, Archie is currently not entitled to the title of Prince. It had nothing to do with his race or skin colour.
Fact #2 : Archie Could Become Prince
By the same 1917 decree, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor could later become a Prince, if the current heir to the throne – Prince Charles – becomes king.
When that happens, he becomes the grandchild of a monarch and automatically receives the title of Prince.
However, that may not happen if, hypothetically, Prince Charles abdicates the throne in favour of his son, Prince William.
Fact #3 : Princess Charlotte + Prince Louis Received Their Titles By Decree
The Duchess of Sussex may wonder why Prince William’s children are princes and princess, while her Archie isn’t.
By the 1917 decree, Prince George – the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales – is automatically a prince.
In 2012, Queen Elizabeth II decreed that the children of the Prince of Wales and his wife, Catherine, would be all princes and princesses.
The reason was not mentioned, but it would be logical to assume that it was to put the younger children on par with Prince George.
We should point out that Queen Elizabeth II issued this decree before Prince George was born on 22 July 2013.
And it only came into effect when Princess Charlotte was born on 2 May 2015, and Prince Louis on 23 April 2018.
Fact #4 : Prince Title Has Nothing To Do With Security
The title of Prince does not actually confer any special security arrangements, especially if they are to be paid by the state.
Full-time working royal family members like Prince William and his wife, Catherine (who is not a princess, but the Duchess of Cambridge) are protected by police bodyguards.
On the other hand, royals with jobs outside the family – like Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie – do not have police bodyguards. They pay for their own private security.
So it was Prince Harry and Meghan’s decision not to be full-time working royals that eliminated their state-funded security protection, not Archie’s lack of prince title.
After all, Prince Harry is still a prince and Archie would have been protected by the same security detail. But that is not the case, because the title of Prince does not automatically include state-sponsored security.
After all, the British public cannot be expected to foot the bill for their security, if they choose not to work for the country, right?
