Claim : Eating Durian Before / After COVID-19 Vaccination Can Kill You!
Two warnings about eating during before / after COVID-19 vaccination have gone viral on WhatsApp (with our English translation underlined) :
Tell your families and friends, if you are going before or after vaccination, don’t eat durian. Someone died on the next day after vaccination. Died after eating durian. You should know and be careful. Life is precious, because of ignorance, you lose your life. Pitiful.
Tell family and friends not to eat durian before or after vaccination. My friend in the garden was vaccinated and came back and ate durian the next day and died. It is better to know and be cautious. Life is precious, because a moment of ignorance will kill it, pitiful.

Truth : You Can Eat Durian Before / After COVID-19 Vaccination!
Those WhatsApp messages are just more COVID-19 fake news, and here are the FACTS!
Fact #1 : No One Died Eating Durian Before / After Vaccination
No one died from eating durian before or after their COVID-19 vaccination.
The Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) also called these messages FALSE.
Fact #2 : No Restrictions On Diet After Vaccination
After receiving your COVID-19 vaccination, you are FREE to do anything you want.
There are NO RESTRICTIONS on your diet and daily life.
Fact #3 : COVID-19 Vaccine Is Just Self-Defence Class For Immune System
The COVID-19 vaccine is really just a self-defence class for your body.
By pretending to be the SARS-CoV-2 virus (that causes COVID-19), the vaccine gives your immune system the opportunity to learn how to identify and defeat the real virus.
That’s it! So there is simply no mechanism by which COVID-19 vaccines can possibly cause a reaction with anything you eat or drink.
Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effect Are Normal
You can expect some mild side effects after vaccination. They are completely normal, because they are signs of your immune system learning how to fight against COVID-19.
You can report any side effects you feel over the next few days in MySejahtera. If they persist, or get severe, please seek medical attention at the nearest government hospital.
So please tell your family and friends that these are FAKE NEWS, so they won’t keep sharing it!
