Fact Check : Did Queen Elizabeth Die From COVID-19?!

HU Finally Admits Queen Elizabeth Not Dead From COVID-19!

Hollywood Unlocked finally admitted that Queen Elizabeth was not found dead from her COVID-19 infection!

Take a look at their viral claim, and find out why they were wrong from the very start!

 

HU Claim : Queen Elizabeth Dead From COVID-19!

On 22 February 2022, Hollywood Unlocked published an article claiming that Queen Elizabeth was found dead, presumably from her COVID-19 infection!

HU Exclusive: Queen Elizabeth Dead

Socialites, it is with our deepest regret to inform you that Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has died.

Sources close to the Royal Kingdom notified us exclusively that Queen Elizabeth has passed away. She was scheduled to attend the wedding of British Vogue editor Edward Enninful, but was found dead.

The Buckingham Palace announced on Sunday that The Queen had tested positive for coronavirus. They said at the time that Queen Elizabeth who was celebrating her 70th year on the throne — was “experiencing mild cold-like symptoms” but was expected “to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week,” the palace said.

However, this Tuesday, she also canceled her planned virtual engagements as she continued to suffer from the “mild Covid-19 symptoms.” No further details surrounding her death have been shared. She was 95 years old.

We will continue to keep you updated as this story develops…

 

Truth : Queen Elizabeth Is NOT Dead From COVID-19!

Seriously, some websites are so desperate for views that they would just make up stories like this.

Queen Elizabeth is very much alive, and NOT DEAD from her COVID-19 infection, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Queen Elizabeth Diagnosed With COVID-19 On Sunday

Just for context, Queen Elizabeth II tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, 20 February 2022.

Fully-vaccinated against the coronavirus, she was said to be suffering from mild cold-like symptoms.

Fact #2 : Queen Elizabeth Continuing With Light Duties

On the very day Hollywood Unlocked claimed that Queen Elizabeth was found dead from COVID-19, Buckingham Palace actually made some announcements about her health :

  • she postponed two scheduled virtual audiences, and that
  • she was “still experiencing mild cold-like symptoms“, but  will “continue with light duties“.

Fact #3 : Queen Elizabeth Had Her Weekly Telephone Call With UK PM

A day after Hollywood Unlocked claimed that Queen Elizabeth was found dead from COVID-19, Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen had her weekly telephone audience with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Fact #4 : Queen Elizabeth Does Not Attend Celebrity Weddings

It is remarkable that a celebrity blogger like Jason Lee seems unaware that Queen Elizabeth II does not attend celebrity weddings.

She’s the Queen of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realms, not some doozy influencer or celebrity.

Fact #5 : Queen Elizabeth Is Isolating With COVID-19

Even if Queen Elizabeth wanted to, she wouldn’t be able to attend Edward Enninful’s wedding, because she just tested positive for COVID-19!

Buckingham Palace had already pointed out that Queen is isolating at Windsor Castle after testing positive for COVID-19.

Fact #6 : There Are Existing Protocols To Break The News

The United Kingdom has a long history of monarchs dying, with long-established royal protocols in place to break such news.

If Queen Elizabeth II did indeed die, Buckingham Palace will inform UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, after which an announcement would be made on the BBC.

Obviously, that has not happened.

Fact #7 : Kate Middleton Continued Her Tour Of Denmark

If Jason Lee needs more evidence, he would do well to note that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, continued her tour of Denmark.

Protocol dictates that members of the royal family must always bring a black outfit on overseas trips, in case of a death in the family.

If the Queen had really died, the Duchess of Cambridge would have been on the first flight home.

Instead, she was seen smiling and dressed in a chic gray coat by Catherine Walker, when she met Queen Margrethe and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.

Fact #8 : Buckingham Palace Does Not Comment On Such Rumours

On Wednesday, 23 February 2022 – the day Buckingham Palace announced the Queen’s call with the UK Prime Minister, a Twitter account (@HollywoodUL) claiming to represent Hollywood Unlocked posted an apology and blamed the mistake on “an intern”.

However, Jason Lee, the owner of the Hollywood Unlocked blog, claimed that it was a fake account, and refused to retract his fake story.

Woke up to some fake account posting a retraction. We do not know that account and we have not retracted our story. There has yet to be an official statement from the Palace. Staying tuned.

Jason Lee also wrote on Twitter :

We don’t post lies and I always stand by my sources. Waiting for an official statement from the palace.

He may have to wait a long time, as Buckingham Palace told Newsweek that it never responds to rumours of this kind.

Fact #9 : Jason Lee Removed Two Posts

Despite insisting that he is standing by his sources, Jason Lee quietly deleted two of his Instagram posts on 24 February 2022.

  • in the first, he claimed he has never lied, and has never been wrong, that he trusts his sources and he has yet to see an official statement from the palace confirming that he’s wrong
  • in the second he called out Variety for suggesting that he was wrong

Fact #10 : Hollywood Unlocked Admits Queen Is Still Alive

On 25 February 2022, Hollywood Unlocked finally admitted that Queen Elizabeth II is very much still alive.

Instead of a contrite apology, they wrote a long non-apology article called “Fact Check: 10 Reasons We Believed Queen Elizabeth Was Dead“.

Basically, it was a long list of excuses why they should not be blamed for not checking their facts, and how they would “never intentionally cause unnecessary pain or grief”. Yeah, sure.

Jason Lee apologised in the article, “… based on Wednesday’s report from the Palace, I can say my sources got this wrong and I sincerely apologise to The Queen and the Royal Family.

Is Stanley Johnson’s Marburg Virus Book About Vaccine Depopulation?

Did Stanley Johnson – Boris Johnson’s father – write a book about depopulating the world using the Marburg virus, and forced vaccination?

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

 

Claim : Stanley Johnson’s Marburg Virus Book Is About Vaccine Depopulation!

Stanley Johnson – the father of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson – is the latest villain, according to messages circulating on Telegram, WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook.

Apparently, Stanley Johnson wrote a book about depopulating the world using the Marburg virus, and forced vaccination!

Boris Johnson’s dad, Stanley, wrote a novel in 1982 called ‘The Virus’ about the government releasing a deadly Virus into the population as cover for population control using a forced vaccine. I am serious. Clown show.

Boris Johnson’s father Stanley Johnson thinks it is ridiculous that UK’s population is at 70 million and he says that it should be reduced to 10 to 15 million. Watch the short video here: his population control theory to reduce UK inhabitants to ‘10 or 15 million’.

This British PM’s father, Boris Johnson, who wrote a novel about governments using a virus and forced vaccination as a form of depopulation and population control. One book he wrote is called “The Marburg Virus”.

Stanley wrote several books about the overpopulation of England and the world, and demanded that the world population be reduced.

Does the apple fall far from the tree..?

Imagine jabbing a population with something that a government has stated that they do not know what its impact on fertility is? 🧐

 

Truth : Stanley Johnson’s Marburg Virus Book Is NOT About Vaccine Depopulation!

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination FAKE NEWS, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Stanley Johnson’s Novel Was Called The Marburg Virus

Stanley Johnson published his novel, The Marburg Virus, in 1982.

It was renamed as The Virus when it was republished by Witness Impulse in 2020, to capitalise on the COVID-19 pandemic.

As you may surmise, the Marburg virus is a different virus from SARS-CoV-2, the COVID-19 virus. Republishing the novel with the old name may not help with sales.

Fact #2 : Plot Did Not Involve Government Releasing A Deadly Virus

The plot of Stanley Johnson’s novel did not involve any government releasing a deadly virus into the population as a cover for population control.

It was about a fictional epidemiologist, Lowell Kaplan, who is trying to track down the source of a deadly outbreak of the Marburg virus that started in New York.

It only tells of the US and USSR (yes, it was published when the USSR still existed!) racing to control the main vector of the virus – African green monkeys.

Fact #3 : Plot Did Not Involve Population Control

The book does not mention population control even once. Neither did it suggest that a vaccine was used to kill people, to reduce population size.

In fact, its plot involved the creation of a vaccine, which one character said was given out to 200 million Americans, to save their lives.

That’s the complete opposite of population control. Like in real life, the vaccine in the book saved lives.

Fact #4 : Marburg Virus Is Completely Different From SARS-CoV-2

The Marburg virus was not a new virus, even when Stanley Johnson wrote about it in 1982 – it was discovered in 1967, in Marburg, Germany.

It is also a completely different virus from SARS-CoV-2, in many ways :

  • it’s from a different virus family – Filoviridae, not Coronaviridae
  • it’s very deadly, with a mortality rate of 24% to 88%
  • it spreads through direct contact with blood and/or bodily fluids
  • it does not transmit as easily, and has low pandemic risk

Fact #5 : UK Does Not Have Forced COVID-19 Vaccination

The suggestion that Boris Johnson’s father influenced him to reduce population through forced vaccination is nonsensical, because the United Kingdom does NOT have forced COVID-19 vaccination.

No one in the UK is forced to get vaccinated against COVID-19. That’s why there are still about 6.25 million unvaccinated people in the UK – 9.3% of its population.

Fact #6 : UK Has Very High Vaccination Rates

There is, frankly, no need for a COVID-19 vaccine mandate in the United Kingdom, because they have fully-vaccinated over 83% of their population.

More importantly, the UK population isn’t dropping due to COVID-19 vaccination. People are NOT dying from the COVID-19 vaccines, as suggested by the fake message.

Fact #7 : Stanley Johnson Was Against Migrants

Stanley Johnson believes that the UK’s population should be reduced to reduce its impact on the environment.

But he never once mentioned using vaccines as a method for population control. Instead, he spoke out against migrants, and a lack of family planning in poor countries.

The issue of migration is of course of fundamental importance in the overall demographic picture. UK’s key population statistics are increasingly influenced by migration. During Labour’s 13 years, net inward migration totalled a staggering 3.6 million. There has also there been a significant introduction of women born overseas who are of child-bearing age, and inclined in any case to favour large families.

The place to solve the migrant and refugee crisis is in the countries where the potential migrants and refugees originate. The harsh truth is that, in vast areas of the globe, birth-rates remain much too high and per capita incomes ridiculously low.

Fact #8 : No One Controls Population Through Vaccines

COVID-19 vaccines have not only been proven safe, they have also been proven to prevent severe disease and deaths.

In short, COVID-19 vaccines save lives. That is the OPPOSITE of population control.

If any devious organisation or person wants to reduce population, then they would try to scare people into not protecting themselves against COVID-19 using vaccines. Exactly what anti-vaccination activists are doing.

Did Britain End COVID-19 Vaccine + Face Mask Mandates?

Did Britain end its COVID-19 vaccine and face mask mandates?

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

 

Claim : Britain Ends COVID-19 Vaccine + Face Mask Mandates!

This message has gone viral on WhatsApp, claiming that Britain has ended its COVID-19 vaccine and face mask mandates.

It’s rather long, so just skip to the next section for the facts…

Experimental Shots No Longer Mandated!!!

2 minute speech by UK PM Boris Johnson says it all.

20th Jan 2022 !!!

Britain will NO LONGER MANDATE the Covid-19 vaccine shots and use of face masks!

Britain to ‘Treat Coronavirus Like a Cold’ Ends all Covid Restrictions

 

Truth : Only England Ended Face Mask + COVID-19 Pass Mandates

This is yet another example of antivaxxers twisting actual news to create a false narrative.

Fact #1 : Great Britain Consists Of England, Wales + Scotland

First, we need to understand that Great Britain consists of England, Wales and Scotland, while the United Kingdom consists of Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

This is important because both Scotland and Wales have their own legislatures, their own Parliaments. Therefore, they may implement different rules from England.

Fact #2 : England Ends Plan B Measures, Not Britain

On 20 January 2022, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that Plan B measures for England will end.

This announcement only affects England, and not the entire Great Britain as the fake news claims.

Fact #3 : Plan B Restrictions Are Temporary

The fake news suggested that these restrictions were in place for the last 2 years. That’s completely misleading.

These Plan B restrictions only started on 15 December 2021 to combat the Omicron surge. That means they only lasted 6 weeks, not 2 years.

In addition, Plan B restrictions can always be restored. It all depends on the situation.

Fact #4 : England Ends Face Mask + COVID Pass Mandates

England will drop these Plan B restrictions on Thursday, 27 January 2022 :

  • Face masks are no longer mandated in public places, but people are still advised to wear them in enclosed or crowded spaces, or when meeting strangers
  • Secondary school students are no longer required to wear face masks in classrooms.
  • The mandatory COVID pass (NHS COVID Pass) is no longer required for nightclubs and large public events, but organisations can choose to require it if they wish.
  • People are no longer advised to work from home, and should consider returning to offices.

Fact #5 : Wales + Scotland Are Maintaining Some Restrictions

Both Wales and Scotland are maintaining some restrictions that are being lifted in England :

Wales

  • COVID passes are still required for large events, cinemas, nightclubs and theatres.
  • Face masks are still compulsory in schools, on public transport, and in shops and hospitals.

Scotland

  • COVID certification is still required for some venues, including night clubs.
  • Organisers of large events must check the COVID status of at least 50% of attendees, or 1,000 people, whichever is larger.
  • Face masks are still compulsory on public transport, and most indoor spaces.

So the claim that Britain no longer has those mandates is, well, false…

Interestingly, the fake news actually includes a link to this information. So the fake news creator is well-aware of this fact, but chose to lie to you instead.

Fact #6 : COVID Pass Mandate Only For Night Clubs + Large Events

The fake news claimed that the COVID pass was required to enter business premises, schools and churches.

That’s an outright lie. The COVID pass mandate only applied to :

  • nightclubs,
  • unseated indoor events with 500 or more attendees,
  • unseated outdoor events with 4,000 or more attendees, and
  • any event with 10,000 or more attendees.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Passport Includes Recent Negative Test Results

The term “vaccine passport” isn’t accurate, as the domestic NHS COVID Pass includes recent negative test results.

In other words, even unvaccinated people can obtain a domestic NHS COVID Pass, if they tested negative for COVID-19 recently.

Fact #8 : UK Never Had A COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

The fake news claimed that Britain will no longer mandate COVID-19 vaccinations.

That’s utter nonsense, because there was never a COVID-19 vaccine mandate in the UK to begin with.

No one in the UK is forced to get vaccinated against COVID-19. That’s why there are still about 6.25 million unvaccinated people in the UK – 9.3% of its population.

Fact #9 : UK Has Very High Vaccination Rates

There is, frankly, no need for a COVID-19 vaccination mandate in the United Kingdom, because they have fully-vaccinated over 83% of their population.

In other words, the United Kingdom has the option to live with COVID-19, because most of their people are protected against COVID-19.

If they get infected with COVID-19, most cases will be mild and will not require hospitalisation. The risk of severe disease and death is greatly reduced by vaccines.

If you want the chance to enjoy the same freedom, it’s very simple – get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #10 : COVID-19 Vaccines Are NOT Experimental

Once the COVID-19 vaccines successfully completed their clinical trials and received their EUA, they were NO LONGER EXPERIMENTAL.

The conditions to receive the EUA is similar to that of a full approval. The only real difference is the post-study follow-up :

  • EUA : At least half of the participants in the studies must be followed for at least two months after vaccination.
  • Full FDA Approval : All of the participants in the studies must be followed for at least six months.
