However on the 12th Jan he decidede [sic] to go cycling and suffered a heart attack while cyclrng [sic] and passed away. So guys after you receive your booster please do not exert yourselves for at least 10 days.
No Evidence Shebby Singh Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!
Whenever a celebrity dies, it is astounding how quickly people are claiming that his/her death is due to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Yet the evidence shows that neither celebrities died from the COVID-19 vaccines, and the claims were just anti-vaccination FAKE NEWS.
Here is what we know so far about Shebby Singh, and whether he died from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.
Fact #1 : Shebby Singh Died From Heart Attack
Serbegeth Singh, popularly known as Shebby Singh, collapsed while cycling in Sunway Iskandar, in Iskandar Puteri in Johor Bahru, at around 7 PM on 12 January 2022.
According to Iskandar Puteri district police chief, Assistant Commissioner Dzulkhairi Mukhtar, Shebby was believed to have died from a heart attack.
This was later confirmed by his autopsy.
Fact #2 : Shebby Singh Autopsy Completed
On 13 January 2022, Serbegeth’s son, Sonuljit Singh stated that his father’s autopsy had been completed, after which his remains were taken to the Nirvana Memorial Centre at Jalan Skudai, for the public to pay their last respects.
His remains would later be taken to the Loke Yew Crematorium in Kuala Lumpur on 14 January 2022, where the public there can pay their respects from 3 PM to 4 PM.
Fact #3 : Autopsy Confirmed He Died From Heart Attack
On 16 January 2022, Sonuljit spoke up against the fake news claiming that his father died from the COVID-19 booster shot.
He said that the post mortem indicated that his father died from a heart attack due to existing blockage. He also said that his father had cardiac fibrosis and likely had a silent attack in the past.
“The doctors told us the cause of his death was 99 percent related to a heart attack as his post mortem showed three of his coronary arteries having blockages.
All his vital organs were in perfect working condition, and there were also no signs of any allergic reaction.
His heart was ready to go at any time, and it had nothing to do with the booster shot.”
Sonuljit also shared that his father, siblings and many relatives had a history of similar heart-related ailments.
Fact #4 : Side Effects Are Evidence Of Vaccines Working
Vaccines work by triggering our body’s immune system to identify the pathogen, and make antibodies against it.
Whenever we get vaccinated, we should expect to get some side effects – muscle ache, fever, etc. These side effects generally dissipate quickly, usually within 1-3 days.
That’s our body’s reaction to what it thinks is a real infection. It’s really no different than how our body would behave if we actually got infected.
So, it would not be surprising if Serbegeth felt unwell for 2 days after getting his COVID-19 vaccination.
Fact #5 : No Post-Vaccination Exercise Restriction
Health authorities generally advise against strenuous exercise after getting vaccinated, but there is no actual restriction on exercising after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
The advice is generally meant to avoid accidents if people are exercising while having a headache or fever, and to avoid people conflating post-exercise pain or injury with the vaccine.
Only adolescents and young adults (below 30 years of age) who received the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine need to avoid strenuous exercise and watch out for symptoms of myocarditis / pericarditis :
Even if we assume that he received the Pfizer booster dose, Serbegeth was 61 years old, and very, very unlikely to suffer from the rare adverse effect of myocarditis / pericarditis.
Fact #6 : Pericarditis / Myocarditis Is NOT Heart Attack
Now, we do not know if Serbegeth even received the Pfizer vaccine, but I have to point out that pericarditis and myocarditis are not the same thing as a heart attack (myocardial infarction).
Myocarditis / pericarditis is the INFLAMMATION of the heart muscle (myocarditis) or outer lining of the heart (pericarditis), causing chest pain, shortness of breath or feelings of a pounding or fast-beating heart.
It is generally mild, and most will respond well to medicine and rest, and recover completely. They can usually return to normal daily activities once their symptoms improve / resolve.
Myocardial infarction is the IRREVERSIBLE DEATH of the heart muscle due to a PROLONGED LACK of oxygen supply. This is a medical emergency which will result in death if not treated quickly.
Individuals who survive a myocardial infarction will not recover completely, because you cannot restore the dead heart muscle.
Fact #7 : Pericarditis / Myocarditis Is Treatable
Again, we do NOT know if Serbegeth even received the Pfizer vaccine, but I have to point out that even if he did – it would not result in a heart attack.
Myocarditis and pericarditis from vaccines is “often mild, and cases usually resolve after a few days with treatment and rest“.
They also result in noticeable symptoms, so people generally seek treatment before anything serious happens :
- chest pain
- shortness of breath
- heart palpitations / pounding heart
As an avid sportsman, Serbegeth would have noted those symptoms, and sought medical attention. It is doubtful that he would have gone cycling while experiencing such symptoms.
