Victoria Cardiac Arrest Surge Linked To COVID Vaccines?!

Are the “unprecedented surges” in cardiac arrest cases in Victoria linked to COVID-19 vaccines?

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Cardiac Arrest Surge In Victoria Linked To COVID Vaccines!

Anti-vaccine activists are sharing an article by The Epoch Times, as evidence that the “unprecedented surges” in cardiac arrest cases in Victoria is somehow linked to COVID-19 vaccines!

Here is an excerpt from that article by The Epoch Times:

Cardiac Arrest Surge In Victoria Not Linked To COVID Vaccines!

Let’s take a look at the surges in cardiac arrest cases in Victoria, and find out why they are not linked to COVID-19 vaccines!

Fact #1 : Myocarditis Is Not Cardiac Arrest

First, I should point out that myocarditis is not the same thing as a cardiac arrest. Both conditions affect the heart, but they are completely different heart problems.

Myocarditis is the inflammation of the heart muscle, and is a side effect of COVID-19 infections, and a rare side effect of mRNA vaccines. People with myocarditis may not have any symptoms, or may present with chest pain, shortness of breath, and/or palpitations.

Cardiac arrest, on the other hand, is an electrical problem that causes the heart to stop beating completely. People who suffer a cardiac arrest will collapse immediately and lose consciousness, as we have seen with many young athletes like Christian Eriksen, as well as children like Jackson Mohr.

Fact #2 : Victoria Report Does Not Link Vaccines To Cardiac Arrest

The Epoch Times article is based on the Victorian Ambulance Cardiac Arrest Registry 2020-2021 Annual Report (PDF).

If you look at the report, you will realise that it does not link COVID-19 vaccines to the increase in cardiac arrest. In fact, the word “vaccine” does not appear to feature in the report at all. In fact, the reported data does not even include COVID-19 vaccination status.

So I’m not sure why anyone would link this report on sudden cardiac arrest cases in Victoria, Australia, to COVID-19 vaccines. Nothing in the report would suggest such a link.

Fact #3 : Cardiac Arrest Cases Rising Over Past Decade

The report also pointed out that the incidence of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) cases has been steadily rising over the past decade.

This clearly shows that the increase has nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccination, which only began in February 2021 in Australia.

This chart also shows that there was no “spike” in the incidence of cardiac arrest cases in Victoria. There is just an increasing trend over the past 10 years.

Fact #4 : Not All Cases Were Cardiac-Related

On top of that, almost ⅓ of the adult cardiac arrest cases were not cardiac-related. They were caused by trauma (car crashes, falls, shooting / stabbing), respiratory, overdose/poisoning, terminal illness, or hanging and other causes.

In children, only 14% were cardiac-related. The vast majority – 86% of cardiac arrest cases – were caused by respiratory arrests, drowning and trauma.

So how is it possible for anyone to conclude or even suggest that these cardiac arrest cases were somehow linked to COVID-19 vaccines?

Fact #5 : Vaccines Not Linked To Cardiac Arrest

It is odd that the article would suggest in its title that there might be a link between the surge in cardiac arrest cases in Victoria, with the COVID-19 vaccines.

I should point out that there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine causes cardiac arrest.  In fact, an August 2023 study that was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine showed “no evidence for an increase in sudden cardiac arrest or an increase in myocarditis in athletes after COVID-19 vaccination“:

We analyzed all of the studies we could find. Including one from Australia that included more than four million people. There researchers found that neither the rates of sudden cardiac arrest nor the rates of myocarditis as cause for cardiac arrest increased after vaccination. Myocarditis occurs most often in young people, especially in men

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Infections Linked To Myocarditis

What the article may not tell you is that COVID-19 infections are known to cause myocarditis. A September 2021 report by the CDC pointed out that COVID-19 patients have nearly 16X the risk of developing myocarditis:

During March 2020–January 2021, patients with COVID-19 had nearly 16 times the risk for myocarditis compared with patients who did not have COVID-19, and risk varied by sex and age.

The findings in this report underscore the importance of implementing evidence-based COVID-19 prevention strategies, including vaccination, to reduce the public health impact of COVID-19 and its associated complications.

Fact #7 : Myocarditis Is Not Common Cause Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest

It is also odd that the article lede would be about the “causal relationship between vaccines and myocarditis”, followed by the claim that myocarditis is a common cause of sudden cardiac arrest in young individuals.

For one thing – myocarditis is not a common cause of sudden cardiac arrest in young individuals. An August 2019 study published in the Forensic Sciences Research journal detailed how autopsies revealed that myocarditis was present only in 6% of people who died from sudden cardiac death.

The most common cause of sudden cardiac death is actually coronary artery disease, which accounts for up to 80% of all deaths. Cardiomyopathies due to obesity, alcoholism, and fibrosis, as well as genetic channelopathies account for most of the remaining causes.

Did Brooke Shields Collapse From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Was Brooke Shields rushed to the hospital, after collapsing suddenly from a COVID-19 vaccine seizure?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Brooke Shields Collapsed From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Brooke Shields collapsed suddenly and was rushed to the hospital, anti-vaccine proponents immediately claimed or suggested that the actress suffered a seizure caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Steve Kirsch : Brooke Shields Rushed To Hospital After ‘Frothing At The Mouth’ welcome to the new normal. Oddly, this is pretty much only happening to vaccinated people. I wonder why?

Vaccine Deaths-SADS : Brooke Shields Rushed To Hospital After ‘Frothing At The Mouth’ #NewsBreak She has been having seizures after the jab. Hope you survive, so you can get more.

People, y’all have got to wake up.

Truth : Brooke Shields Did Not Collapse From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Brooke Shields Had A Grand Mal Seizure

On Wednesday, 1 November 2023, Brooke Shields (born Brooke Christa Shields on 31 May 1965) revealed in a Glamour interview that she suffered a scary medical emergency several weeks earlier in September.

The actress recounted how she was waiting for a table at the L’Artusi restaurant in New York City, when she suffered a seizure.

Two women came up to me; I don’t know them. Everything starts to go black. Then my hands drop to my side and I go headfirst into the wall.

Brooke Shields explained that she suffered a “full blown grand mal seizure“, which is also known as a tonic-clonic seizure. She did not suffer any COVID-19 vaccine injury.

I start having a grand mal seizure… Frothing at the mouth, totally blue, trying to swallow my tongue.

Fact #2 : Bradley Cooper Accompanied Her To The Hospital

The next thing Brooke Shields remembered was being loaded onto an ambulance, and given oxygen, and realising that “Bradley fucking Cooper is sitting next to me, holding my hand“.

I thought to myself, This is what death must be like. You wake up and Bradley Cooper’s going, ‘I’m going to go to the hospital with you, Brooke,’ and he’s holding my hand.

I’m looking at Bradley Cooper’s hand in my hand, and I’m like, ‘This is odd and surreal.’

Bradley Cooper happened to be near the restaurant when Brooke Shields suffered her seizure, and accompanied her to the hospital after the restaurant failed to get hold of her husband, Chris Henchy.

Fact #3 : Brooke Shields Attributed Seizure To Water Toxicity

It is unknown if Brooke Shields suffers from epilepsy. But she explained that she had been drinking “so much water” that day, that the seizure was triggered by low sodium.

I flooded my system and I drowned myself. And if you don’t have enough sodium in your blood or urine or your body, you can have a seizure.

So as a 58-year-old woman, I’m not limiting my salt, OK? Stop trying to make me a crazy actress or a female that doesn’t know what the fucking they’re doing.

I was drinking too much water because I felt dehydrated because I was singing more than I’ve ever sung in my life and doing a show and a podcast. So they were just like, ‘Eat potato chips every day.’

Brooke Shields never once claimed that her seizure was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. In fact, she never mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine even once in her Glamour interview.

To be clear – hyponatremia (low sodium) can cause seizures. And there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines can cause tonic-clonic seizures.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Brooke Shields Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims that Brooke Shields is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, I can find no record of her COVID-19 vaccination status. She did not appear to posted anything about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine on social media, so it is uncertain he was vaccinated against COVID-19.

For all we know – Brooke Shields may not even be vaccinated against COVID-19! After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States. Many people who suffered sudden death or injuries were found to be unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless Brooke Shields reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that she is fully-vaccinated is likely lying to you.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Brooke Shields was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean she suffered a seizure caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. For one thing – there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause seizures.

More importantly – she would have received her doses more than two years ago! She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months or years later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITTdevelop within days.

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.
