Did Shane Warne die suddenly from Covid-19 vaccine?!

Did Shane Warne die suddenly in Thailand from a heart attack caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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


Claim : Shane Warne Died Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Shane Warne died suddenly in March 2022 while on holiday in Thailand, but the media is in a frenzy over claims by two cardiologists that his death may have been caused by the COVID-19 vaccine:

A leading UK-based Indian-origin consultant cardiologist and an Australian medic said on Tuesday that they fear the sudden death last year of Australian cricket legend Shane Warne may have been precipitated by the COVID mRNA vaccine that he had taken approximately nine months prior.

Cardiologists Dr. Aseem Malhotra and Dr. Chris Neil, who is also President of the Australian Medical Professionals’ Society (AMPS), said the post-mortem findings for Warne, 52, revealed coronary atherosclerosis or heart disease. They said their research shows that a COVID mRNA vaccine can cause a rapid acceleration of coronary disease, especially in those that may already have undetected mild heart disease.

Truth : Shane Warne Died From A Heart Attack

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 : Shane Warne Died From A Heart Attack

Shane Warne (born Shane Keith Warne on 13 September 1969) was an Australian cricketeer, who became a TV commentator after he retired, working for both Sky and Fox until his death.

On 4 March 2022, Shane Warne was holidaying on the island of Ko Samui in Thailand, when his friend found him unconscious in his villa. They attempted to revive him by CPR after calling for help.

When Thai paramedics arrived, they found a pool of vomit* by his bed, and bloodstains from the prolonged CPR. They attempted CPR as he continued to be “unresponsive” with a “weak pulse”.

An ambulance arrived shortly after and took him to the local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His body was later taken by ferry to a Surat Thani hospital for an autopsy.

On 7 March 2022, the Thai police announced that Shane Warne’s autopsy results confirmed that he died of “natural causes” from a “congenital disease“. They ruled out any foul play, and said that Shane Warne died from a suspected heart attack.

* Vomiting is one of the symptoms of someone suffering a heart attack

Fact #2 : Shane Warne Had Heart Disease

Shane Warne had been suffering from chest pains before he even arrived in Thailand, and had earlier seen a doctor about his heart.

Shane also suffered from asthma, even though he was a life-long smoker, and just finished a “ridiculous” fluid-only diet, according to his manager, James Erskine.

He did go on these ridiculous sorts of diets, and he was just finished with one. It was a bit all or nothing. It was either white buns with butter and lasagna stuffed in the middle or he would be having black and green juices.

He obviously smoked most of his life. I don’t know. I think it was just a massive heart attack.

Warne’s family also confirmed that he had been suffering from heart problems, and asthma in the weeks leading to his death, and that he just completed a 14-day liquid-only diet.

Fact #3 : Shane Warne’s Autopsy Confirmed Atherosclerosis

On 13 February 2023, Shane Warne’s death certificate was released, revealing his official cause of death – coronary artery atherosclerosis.

This confirms that Shane Warne died from a heart attack brought about by atherosclerosis of his coronary arteries.

Fact #4 : Atherosclerosis Takes Years To Develop

Atherosclerosis is the thickening and/or hardening of the arteries that occurs when a sticky substance called plaque (which consists of cholesterol, fats, and other substances) builds up inside your arteries.

It generally takes years to develop significant atherosclerosis, although a 2020 study showed that it can rapidly increase in people between the ages of 40 and 50. Even so, that study showed progression over 3 years.

Fact #5 : No Evidence COVID-19 Vaccines Cause Atherosclerosis

While the press reports claim that Dr. Aseem Malhotra and Dr. Chris Neil conducted research that showed that “a COVID mRNA vaccine can cause a rapid acceleration of coronary disease“, there is no evidence of such research.

It is possible that Dr. Aseem Malhotra was referring to the “Gundry study” which allegedly showed that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines double the heart attack risk. If so, that has already been shown to be misleading back in December 2021.

  • It was an abstract, and not a peer-reviewed study
  • The journal published an Expression of Concern over the lack of data or statistical analysis
  • The PULS test used does not directly assess cardiac health
  • Most of the PULS test results were not revealed, or analysed
  • The PULS test is not used in mainstream cardiology

If mRNA vaccines really do cause atherosclerosis in a matter of months, then millions of people would have died from heart attacks in the 2.5 years since they were administered to billions of people. Yet, we have seen no such thing.

Fact #6 : Shane Warne Was Fully-Vaccinated

Shane Warne was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, a fact he revealed when he shared about the time he caught COVID-19 in August 2021, and weathered it just fine.

It was a bit like a hangover, I had a pounding headache. The first couple of days, when I tested positive, I just had a thumping headache and I had one day where I had the shivers, but (was) sweating, like when you have the flu.

I lost a bit of sense of taste for a few days, but after three or four days I was fine. I have apparently got the holy grail. I have been double vaccinated and I have had Covid, so I am meant to be absolutely fine now.

While some of the press did report that Shane Warne was placed on a ventilator, it was not because he was short of breath. Rather, he was testing a special ventilator:

It wasn’t because I could not breathe, or anything like that, it was basically a special ventilator that I was trialling to make sure there were no longer-lasting effects that Covid would have on me.

I have been fine, I have been able to run, I have been able to do everything. I have been absolutely fine.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even though Shane Warne was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, he was fully-vaccinated more than nine months 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.

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.

ICC and OPPO Announce a 4-Year Global Partnership

Dubai/Shenzhen, Dec. 10, 2015 – On December 10, the day before the opening press conference for the World Twenty20 2016, the International Cricket Council announced that OPPO, the evolving global smartphone brand, will become its official partner worldwide for the mobile phone category. The partnership will run for 4 years, from the start of 2016 to the end of 2019.

Notably known as “a gentleman’s game”, cricket has always been a strong symbol of sportsmanship and fairplay, with its players upholding high standards of respect for both opponents and officials. The ICC, the global governing body of cricket with 10 full members, 37 associate members and 60 affiliate members, is determined to safeguard cricket’s unique spirit and to promote the sport in its 100-plus member countries and regions, which naturally leads to the very selective choice of its partners.

Commenting on the new partnership, ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said: “The ICC is delighted to welcome OPPO on board as a Global Partner and we are excited about the opportunity to team up for the next four years. OPPO is one of the market leaders in its field with an impressive worldwide presence, especially in territories where the game of cricket continues to grow and, in a lot of cases, flourish.

“OPPO has strong brand values on innovation and integrity, which are closely aligned with the ICC’s, and we believe that by partnering with OPPO, we can extend cricket’s reach even further. We look forward to working closely with them for the foreseeable future.”

OPPO CEO Mr. Tony Chen said, “By hosting the world’s pre-eminent cricket competitions, the ICC dedicates itself to giving fans around the world an extraordinary and unforgettable cricketing experience. This commitment to excellence accords perfectly with OPPO’s pursuit of perfection in its own exceptional products.”

[adrotate banner=”4″]He mentioned that throughout the last century, the ICC elevated the sport of cricket to new heights, just as OPPO has brought on new standards of excellence in mobile technology throughout its own history. OPPO’s drive to innovate has been particularly striking in the smartphone industry, where it has continued to break records.

From the Finder, which set the record for the world’s thinnest smartphone in 2012, to the N3, with the first automated rotating camera in 2014, OPPO hasn’t let up in producing industry firsts. OPPO has also pioneered the patented VOOC Flash Charge quick-charging technology, introducing the world to the first-ever high-speed, low-voltage charging mechanism. Allowing users to talk for two hours on just a five-minute charge, VOOC Flash Charge is the industry’s fastest and safest charging technology.

To date, OPPO sells its phones offline in over 20 markets around the world, and offers online sales to another fifty-plus countries. In many of the countries OPPO currently operates in, including Australia, India, the UAE and many others in South Asia and Africa, cricket enjoys huge popularity.

Mr. Sky Li, Vice President of OPPO and Managing Director of International Mobile Business, said, “OPPO is very enthusiastic about supporting international cricket, and cooperating with the ICC in bringing cricket fans more of the world-class competitions that the organization is known for. The partnership will allow us to continue to strengthen our links with consumers, as we join them in celebrating the great sport of cricket.”

The ICC runs a number of high-profile cricket competitions, including the ICC Cricket World Cup, the ICC World Twenty20, the ICC Champions Trophy, the ICC Women’s World Cup, the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup and others.

Through the ICC partnership, OPPO will leverage many high profile cricket tournaments hosted by the ICC to present itself through branding and fan engaging opportunities at the matches. This is OPPO’s second big play in the world of sports this year. In May 2015, it announced a 3-year partnership with FC Barcelona.
