No Evidence Cedric Roussel Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!
It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all sudden deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.
Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…
Fact #1 : Cedric Roussel Died From Heart Attack / Cardiac Arrest
Cedric Roussel (born 6 January 1978) was a Belgian professional footballer who played in the Premier League with Coventry City in 1999, and the Belgium national team in 2003. He retired in February 2015 at the age of 37, and became a real estate agent.
On 24 June 2023, Cedric Roussel was sitting on a terrace at a marketplace in Mons, Belgium, when he suddenly collapsed. Despite the best efforts of paramedics who rushed to the scene, they were unable to revive him.
Initial reports say that Cedric Roussel died from a sudden cardiac arrest, but later reports say that he died from a heart attack.
Fact #2 : No Evidence Cedric Roussel Had Myocarditis
There is no evidence that Cedric Roussel was suffering from myocarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.
In fact, if he suffered from myocarditis, Cedric Roussel would not be casually sitting on a terrace enjoying a day out in Mons. He would have been experiencing chest pain and/or shortness of breath.
Fact #3 : Vaccine-Induced Myocarditis Affects Mainly Young Adults
Vaccine-induced myocarditis is not only rare, it occurs mainly in young adults and adolescent males 12 to 39 years in age. Cedric Roussel was 45 years old when he died.
To help you understand that, I created this table to show you the risk of vaccine-induced myocarditis for different age groups.
Note : Baseline refers to the typical number of myocarditis cases expected in the unvaccinated population.
|Age Group||Male Rate

Fact #4 : Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is Common
Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.
The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.
The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many countries enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.
And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.
Fact #5 : Unknown If Cedric Roussel Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19
It is unknown if Cedric Roussel was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.
Some anti-vaccination activists are sharing a photo alleging to show Cedric Roussel getting a COVID-19 vaccine. That’s actually a photo of a different Cedric Roussel!
This Cedric Roussel who posted a photo of himself getting the COVID-19 vaccine is actually a 5o year-old French politician and former Member of Parliament who served in its Committee on Cultural Affairs and Education.
Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Cedric Roussel the footballer died from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect is likely lying to you.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Cedric Roussel was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have been fully-vaccinated more than two years before his death!
He cannot possibly have suffered 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 #7 : Claims Of COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Often Proven False
Most claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!
