Did Zhang Zhijie Drop Dead Mid-Game From Heart Attack?!

Did fully-vaccinated Zhang Zhijie collapse and drop dead mid-game after suffering a fatal heart attack?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Zhang Zhijie Dropped Dead Mid-Game From Heart Attack!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that a fully-vaccinated 17 year-0ld Chinese badminton player called Zhang Zhijie just collapsed and dropped dead mid-game after suffering a fatal heart attack!

Here is an excerpt of the article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Fully Jabbed 17-Year-Old Chinese Player Drops Dead Mid-Game

A fully jabbed 17-year-old Badminton star collapsed mid-game on Sunday and died after suffering a fatal heart attack.

Truth : Zhang Zhijie Did Not Die From Heart Attack!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Zhang Zhijie Died From Cardiac Arrest

Let me start by pointing out that Zhang Zhijie (also known as Zhang Zhi Jie) did not die suddenly from a fatal heart attack.

On Sunday, June 30, 2024, Zhang Zhi Jie was playing against Kazuma Kawano of Japan, in the Badminton Asia Junior Championships in Yogyakarta, Indonesia; when he suddenly collapsed and started convulsing on court.

Zhang was taken to the hospital, but by the time he arrived, he was no longer breathing, and no longer had a pulse. He was treated for about three hours, before being taken to a second hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:20 PM the same day.

Indonesia’s badminton association held a press conference on 1 July, in which spokesperson Broto Happy said that Zhang Zhi Jie died from a sudden cardiac arrest.

The conclusions of the examination and treatment of the victim from two hospitals show the same results, the victim experienced sudden cardiac arrest.

To be clear – two hospitals treated and examined Zhang Zhijie, and they both concluded that he died from a sudden cardiac arrest, not a heart attack.

Fact #2 : Unknown If Zhang Zhijie Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Due to the high vaccination rate in China, it is very likely that Zhang Zhijie was vaccinated against COVID-19. However, there isn’t any actual evidence that Zhang received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Zhang Zhijie was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in China.

Ironically, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Grayson Murray, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless he (or his family) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Zhang Zhijie was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #3 : Zhang Zhijie Is Not Zhang Zhizhen

I should also point out that Zhang Zhijie is a 17 year-old Chinese badminton player. He is not Zhang Zhizhen (also known as Zhang Zhi Zhen), who is a 27 year-old Chinese tennis player.

The People’s Voice appears to have confused the two Chinese athletes, who play different sports and don’t even remotely look the same…

Instead of using a photo of Zhang Zhijie playing badminton, The People’s Voice article used a photo of Zhang Zhizhen playing tennis!

Even though their cover image cropped out the tennis ball, it is obvious that the man below (Zhang Zhizhen) is holding a tennis racquet, not a badminton racquet.

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Did Zhang Zhi Jie die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine?!

Did Chinese badminton player Zhang Zhi Jie die suddenly from a COVID-19 vaccine-induced cardiac arrest?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Zhang Zhi Jie Died Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Zhang Zhi Jie collapsed and died suddenly during the Badminton Asia Junior Championship, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the 17 year-old Chinese badminton player died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine!

DANY DEE (translated) : Vaccinated = deceased. Once again ! “Zhang Zhijie, a promising 17-year-old Chinese badminton player, dies after fainting and convulsing mid-match.”

Recommended : Died Suddenly Movie : More Vaccine Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Zhang Zhi Jie Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete 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-vaccine activists…

Fact #1 : Zhang Zhi Jie Died From Cardiac Arrest

Zhang Zhi Jie (also known as Zhang Zhijie) was a 17 year-old Chinese badminton player.

On Sunday, June 30, 2024, Zhang Zhi Jie was playing against Kazuma Kawano of Japan, in the Badminton Asia Junior Championships in Yogyakarta, Indonesia; when he suddenly collapsed and start convulsing on court.

He was taken to the hospital, but by the time he arrived, he was no longer breathing, and no longer had a pulse. He was treated for about three hours, before being taken to a second hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:20 PM the same day.

Indonesia’s badminton association held a press conference on 1 July, in which spokesperson Broto Happy said that Zhang Zhi Jie died from a sudden cardiac arrest.

The conclusions of the examination and treatment of the victim from two hospitals show the same results, the victim experienced sudden cardiac arrest.

To be clear – two hospitals treated and examined Zhang Zhi Jie, and they both concluded that he died from a sudden cardiac arrest, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

None of those who claimed that Zhang Zhi Jie died from the COVID-19 vaccine provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Fact #2 : Badminton Rules Delayed Medical Assistance

The controversy over Zhang Zhi Jie’s tragic and unexpected death wasn’t about whether COVID-19 vaccines played a role (it doesn’t). It was why there appeared to be a delay in providing him with medical assistance.

Several seconds after Zhang Zhi Jie collapsed, a man can be seen gingerly making his way to help him, but stops and looks back as Zhang tries to lift his head up. The man then shouts and gestures for people to help Zhang.

It took some 40 seconds from the time Zhang collapsed to the arrival of the first responder. It was almost a full minute before he was placed on his back. PBSI later explained that the medical teams had to follow a rule where they needed the referee’s permission before entering the court.

That is in accordance with the regulations and standards of procedure that applies to every international badminton tournament.

Badminton Asia said that Zhang was taken to an ambulance within two minutes. However, the video footage shows him being taken off court a little over two minutes after he collapsed.

Fact #3 : Seizures Can Lead To Cardiac Arrest

It is important to note that Zhang Zhi Jie appears to suffer a seizure when he collapsed, because sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a major cause of death for people with epilepsy, or people suffering from seizures:

Among patients with epilepsy, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a major cause of death. It is commonly thought that SCA in epilepsy occurs after a seizure…

Recommended : Are Soccer Players Keeling Over From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause Seizures

To be clear – COVID-19 vaccines do not cause seizures or epilepsy. There is no plausible or known pathogenesis for any vaccine to cause seizures.

Naturally, people claiming or suggesting that COVID-19 vaccines cause seizures, are unable to detail how it is possible, or provide any actual evidence. They want to convince us it’s true, but are too baffled to explain how, or show us any evidence.

In contrast, tens of billions of doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered worldwide, and extended monitoring over the last 3 years have shown that they do not cause seizures.

Fact #5 : Athletes Are At Higher Risk Of Cardiac Arrest

While athletes appears to be the epitome of healthy young people, many are at risk of dying from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

In fact, studies show that sudden cardiac arrest is the leading medical cause of death in young athletes. On average, about 2,000 young people in the United States (less than 24 years old) die from sudden cardiac arrest every year, and many do not have previously-known heart disease.

That’s why many states in the United States enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

Fact #6 : Unknown If Zhang Zhi Jie Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Due to the high vaccination rate in China, it is very likely that Zhang Zhi Jie was vaccinated against COVID-19. However, there isn’t any actual evidence that Zhang received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Zhang Zhi Jie was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in China.

Ironically, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Grayson Murray, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless he (or his family) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Zhang Zhi Jie was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #7 : China Uses Completely Different Vaccines

I should also point out that China does not use much-maligned mRNA vaccines. Instead, they use their own vaccines based on older technologies, like the Sinovac CoronaVac, CanSino Convidecia, and Sinopharm BIBP vaccines.

Fact #8 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Zhang Zhi Jie was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more than three years ago!

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.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

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.

Swimming, Golf, Badminton Allowed For Fully-Vaccinated!

Fully-vaccinated people in Malaysia can now go swimming, play golf and badminton, amongst other things!

Here is what you need to know!

 

Swimming, Golf, Badminton Allowed For Fully-Vaccinated!

From 20 August 2021 onwards, fully-vaccinated people in Malaysia are given more sports and recreational privileges.

Who Qualifies For These Privileges?

Only those who are fully-vaccinated according to these requirements can participate in these sports and recreational privileges :

  • More than 14 days after receiving both doses of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac vaccine.
  • More than 28 days after receiving a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson or Cansino vaccine.

Children are currently not being vaccinated. So parents who are fully-vaccinated are ALLOWED to bring their children who are 17 years or younger to participate in these activities as well.

Sports + Recreational Privileges

Sports and recreational premises and facilities are ALLOWED to open, subject to these restrictions :

  • only open from 6 AM until 8 PM,
  • RESTRICTED to only fully-vaccinated individuals, and their children who are 17 years or younger,
  • 60% capacity limit, under supervision,
  • workforce limited to 60%, including management and operations staff, and
  • subject to any rules and restrictions stipulated by local authorities.

New sports and recreational activities that are now open to fully-vaccinated people include :

  • all individual sports or recreational activities that do not require physical touch, with physical distance of 2-3 metres
  • swimming,
  • equestrian sports,
  • shooting,
  • tennis / badminton (single),
  • golf,
  • motorsports and so on.

In addition, fully-vaccinated people are ALLOWED to dine-in at the club house restaurant or cafe.

Sports + Recreational Restrictions

There are a few restrictions though :

  • It is FORBIDDEN to use the changing room, or shower room, at these sports and recreational facilities.
  • You are RESTRICTED to the same district.

 

Should You Go Swimming Or Play Golf / Badminton?

Frankly speaking, this isn’t a good time to be going out for a swim, or to play golf or badminton, as community spread of COVID-19 is rampant with over 20K new cases reported every day!

However, if you really must, here are some steps to mitigate your risks :

  • if possible, condos should not allow strangers to share the pool at the same time.
  • if possible, book the entire swimming pool for your family so there are no strangers present at the same time
  • try not to bring your unvaccinated children for a swim, unless you can book the entire pool
  • try to play golf alone or with family members who are already living with you, instead of with friends
  • try to play golf without a caddy to help you
  • try to play tennis or badminton with a family member who is already living with you, rather than a friend
  • never use the shower room or changing room
