Did OJ Simpson Die From Vaccine Turbo Cancer?!

Did OJ Simpson just die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine turbo cancer?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : OJ Simpson Died From Vaccine Turbo Cancer!

Right after news broke that OJ Simpson died from prostate cancer, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the former NFL star developed turbo cancer from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Truth : OJ Simpson Did Not Die From Vaccine Turbo Cancer!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : OJ Simpson Died From Prostate Cancer

In May 2023, OJ Simpson (born Orenthal James Simpson on 9 July 1947) publicly revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer, and was undergoing chemotherapy. At that time, he did not reveal what cancer he had. It was only in February 2024 when it was reported that OJ Simpson was being treated for prostate cancer.

In the final days before his death, all of his children visited him at his home in Las Vegas, right next to the Rhodes Ranch Golf Club. On Wednesday, 10 April 2024, OJ Simpson died from prostate cancer, surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

To be clear – OJ Simpson did not die from his COVID-19 vaccination. He died from prostate cancer.

Fact #2 : His Family Did Not Blame COVID-19 Vaccines

OJ Simpson’s family announced his death on his official account on X (formerly known as Twitter):

On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer.

He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace.

-The Simpson Family

Notably, OJ Simpson’s family did not claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccines, or turbo cancer.

Fact #3 : OJ Simpson Likely Had Advanced Prostate Cancer

When OJ Simpson announced in May 2023 that he was diagnosed with (prostate) cancer, he also said that he was undergoing chemotherapy. That suggests that Simpson was diagnosed with metastatic or advanced prostate cancer.

Unfortunately, the prognosis for advanced or metastatic prostate cancer is rather poor, with a 5-year survival rate of just 32%. So it is not surprising that OJ Simpson would succumb just under a year later.

Fact #4 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist!

I should also point out that there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and after billions of doses have been administered worldwide in the past 3 years – there is still no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

What OJ Simpson experienced is similar to what many men with prostate cancer have experienced. The fact that he underwent chemotherapy in May 2023 suggests that he was diagnosed with metastatic or advanced prostate cancer.

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti-vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Did Park Boram Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did K-pop star Park Boram just die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Park Boram Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Park Boram died suddenly at just 30 years of age, some people immediately claimed or suggested the K-pop star was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Hello Dave #excessdeaths / ⚜️Cassandre🐦Colibri✝️ :

K-Pop Singer-Songwriter Park Boram Found Dead at 30.

No cause of death #diedsuddenly

Recommended : Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

No Evidence Park Boram Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Park Boram Reportedly Suffered Cardiac Arrest

On Thursday night, 11 April 2024, Park Boram (born Park Bo-ram 박보람 on 1 March 1994) was drinking with two friends at a residence in Namyangju, Gyeonggi, when she excused herself to go to the washroom.

When Park Boram did not return for an extended period of time, her friends looked for her and found her “slouched over the sink, unconscious” at around 9:55 PM. They called for an ambulance, while one of her friends performed CPR, and attempted to revive her.

Park Boram was reportedly suffering from a cardiac arrest when the police and emergency services reached her. She was transported t to the Hanyang University Guri Hospital, while receiving CPR, but was ultimately declared dead at 11:17 PM.

Fact #2 : Cause of Death + Autopsy Report Not Revealed Yet

An autopsy was conducted on Park Boram on Saturday, 13 April 2024, to determine her cause of death, while the police is conducting its own investigation into her death.

Until and unless the police, the coroner or her family announces her cause of death, or releases her autopsy report, anyone who claims that Park Boram died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Heavy Drinking Can Cause Sudden Cardiac Death

Park Boram was reportedly drinking heavily before her sudden collapse and death. This is important, as alcohol is known to have “an immediate effect on cardiac rhythm“, and previous studies have shown that “a notable proportion of sudden cardiac deaths (SCD) occur after alcohol intake“.

  • 2022 Finnish study suggests that majority of alcohol-related SCD occur at the late stage of inebriation.
  • 2024 Korean study suggests that moderate and heavy drinking was associated with significantly increased risk of atrial fibrillation

The autopsy will determine whether Park Boram’s alcohol consumption was a contributing factor to her death. So please wait for the autopsy report, and/or her cause of death, to be revealed.

Recommended : Did Olivia Munn Get Turbo Breast Cancer From Vaccine?!

Fact #4 : Unknown If Park Boram Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Park Boram was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Park Boram was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the South Korea.

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

Until and unless her family (or the authorities) reveal her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Park Boram was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

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

Even if Park Boram was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her doses more than two years ago! She 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.

Did Nathan Templeton Die From mRNA Vaccine SADS?!

Did former Channel 7 Sunrise reporter Nathan Templeton die suddenly from mRNA vaccine SADS?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Nathan Templeton Died Suddenly From mRNA Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Nathan Templeton was found dead in a park, some people immediately claimed or suggested the former Channel 7 Sunrise reporter died suddenly from the mRNA vaccine!

William Makis MD : Australia – 44 year old Channel 7 News reporter Nathan Templeton died while on a dog walk.

“On 9 April 2024, Templeton was found dead near Barwon River in Geelong after suffering a medical episode while out walking the dog”

As far as COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine sudden deaths go, walking the dog may not be such a bad way to go. #DiedSuddenly

Recommended : Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

No Evidence Nathan Templeton Died Suddenly From mRNA Vaccine!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Nathan Templeton Died From A Medical Episode

On Tuesday afternoon, 9 April 2024, Nathan Templeton (born 9 May 1979) suffered a medical episode while walking his dog in the Zillah Crawcour Park, in the Geelong suburb of Newtown. According to the Victoria Police:

Emergency services were called to a park in Newtown about 2.30pm where the man was located deceased. The death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage.

There is no evidence he died from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, and unsurprisingly, none of those who made those claims ever provided any evidence to back up their baseless claims.

Even his family did not claim that Nathan Templeton died from any vaccination, stating simply that:

Our hearts are broken for an adoring father and a wonderful friend, who’ll be missed by many.

Nathan Templeton was just one month short of his 45th birthday, and leaves behind his wife, Kate, and two young sons.

Fact #2 : Cause of Death + Autopsy Report Not Revealed Yet

The Victoria Police is preparing a report for the coroner, but stated that “the death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage“.

Until and unless the coroner or his family announces his cause of death, or releases his autopsy report, anyone who claims that Nathan Templeton died suddenly from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did Japan Study Prove Vaccinated Blood Is Dangerous?!

Fact #3 : Nathan Templeton Was Suffering From Personal Issues

Although his cause of death has not been determined or revealed, suicide appears to be a possibility. Nathan Templeton was said to be grappling with long-standing personal issues, including depression.

He stopped being on-air for Channel 7 Sunrise since late 2022, and had been working behind-the-scenes instead last year. He has been receiving support for his personal issues, including depression.

Now, that does not mean Nathan Templeton committed suicide. He could easily have died from a cardiac arrest, a heart attack, a stroke – common medical episodes that have been killing people long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Again, we should wait for the autopsy report, and his official cause of death, and not speculate!

Fact #4 : Nathan Templeton Was Vaccinated Almost 3 Years Ago!

From his social media posts, it appears that Nathan Templeton was vaccinated sometime in May 2021. However, it is unknown if he received an mRNA vaccine, as Australia used a mix of COVID-19 vaccines.

In any case, Nathan Templeton would have been fully-vaccinated almost 3 years ago. He cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not 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 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.

Fact Check : King Charles III Just Died From Cancer?!

Did King Charles just die from cancer at the age of 75?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : King Charles III Just Died From Cancer!

Some people are claiming that King Charles III just died from cancer at the age of 75! Here are just some examples:

TRACKER DEEP : BREAKING: SOURCE REPORTS KING CHARLES HAS DIED AFTER SUCCUMBING TO PROSTRATE CANCER AT THE AGE OF 75

Recommended : Did British Royal Family Warn Of A Major Announcement Soon?!

 

No Evidence King Charles Died From Cancer!

This appears to be another example of fake news circulating on social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : King Charles Did Not Die From Cancer!

Let me start by simply pointing out that King Charles did not die from cancer on 17 March 2024.

There was no announcement from official Buckingham Palace sources like its official website, or its official Instagram page, or its official X page.

If King Charles III actually died from any cause, it would have officially announced on the official website, and on the BBC. Yet, there has been no such announcement.

On the other hand, the UK Embassy in Ukraine officially announced that King Charles is not dead:

News about King Charles III death is fake

Fact #2 : King Charles III Death Announcement Is Fake

Other people are sharing what appears to be an official announcement by Buckingham Palace, which states simply:

THE FOLLOWING ANNOUNCEMENT IS MADE BY ROYAL COMMUNICATIONS

The King passed away unexpectedly yesterday afternoon.

Monday, 18th March 2024

Even though this announcement was dated today – Monday, 18 March 2024, it was not posted by Buckingham Palace. We also know that it’s fake, because:

  • The announcement does not appear to be formatted properly as previous official statements.
  • Statements issued by Buckingham Palace would not be labelled as issued by Royal Communications.

Recommended : Did Palace Aide Admit Kate Middleton Was In Medical Coma?!

Fact #3 : King Charles III Does Not Have Prostate Cancer

Here’s another clue why this is a fake claim – King Charles does not have prostate cancer.

On 5 February 2024, Buckingham Palace issued a statement informing the public that when King Charles underwent a procedure for benign prostate enlargement, his doctors discovered an unspecified cancer.

During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer. 

Buckingham Palace declined to reveal what type of cancer King Charles was diagnosed with, and would only confirm that it was not prostate cancer.

No further details are being shared at this stage, except to confirm that His Majesty does not have prostate cancer.

Fact #4 : No One Offered Any Evidence

Quite a number of people are claiming that an unnamed “source” reported that King Charles died from prostate cancer. However, none of them actually offered any evidence such a source exists.

Recommended : Is Kate Middleton Planning To Retire From Royal Duties?!

Fact #5 : Rumour First Appeared In Russian Media

Interestingly, this rumour appears to have first appeared in Russian media, instead of the notoriously inquisitive and free media in the United Kingdom!

Russia’s Gazeta, for example, reported on its Telegram channel that Russian media reported King Charles III died, only to later update it with an announcement that:

Buckingham Palace told TASS that Charles III is alive. He continues to perform work duties and engage in private affairs.

Fact #6 : Rumour Came Right After Major Announcement Fake News

Coincidentally (or perhaps not), this rumour came right after people falsely claimed that the British Royal Family told people to look out for an impending major announcement.

Fact #7 : This Is Just Royal Family Fake News!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news about the British Royal family, like these examples:

Is Kristoffer Olsson fighting for his life from vaccine injury?!

Is Swedish footballer Kristoffer Olsson fighting for his life in the hospital after suffering a COVID-19 vaccine injury?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-03-14 : Added Kristoffer Olsson’s diagnosis, and COVID-19 vaccination.
Originally posted @ 2024-02-28

 

Claim : Kristoffer Olsson Is Fighting For His Life After Vaccine Injury!

Right after news broke that Kristoffer Olsson was placed on a ventilator in hospital, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the Swedish footballer suffered a COVID-19 vaccine injury!

Sweden’s top professor [sic] soccer player Kristoffer Olsson is fighting for his life in hospital just weeks after getting a COVID vaccine.

Recommended : Did Cristiano Ronaldo Just Die In Tragic Car Crash?!

 

No Evidence Kristoffer Olsson Is Fighting For His Life From Vaccine Injury!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on social media platforms like Facebook, and X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Kristoffer Olsson Has An Acute Brain Disease

Let me start by simply pointing out that FC Midtjylland posted a statement on Tuesday, 27 February 2024, stating that Kristoffer Olsson suffered an acute brain disease.

According to FC Midtjylland, the 28 year-old Swedish national team player lost consciousness at his home on Tuesday, 20 February – a week earlier. He was taken to the Aarhus University Hospital, where he was hospitalised and placed on a ventilator.

FC Midtjylland stated that Kristoffer Olsson has “an apparently acute disease related to the brain, which is not due to self-harm of any kind, nor is the cause due to external factors“.

That clearly rules out suicide, a drug overdose, or COVID-19 vaccine injury. It is possible that Kristoffer Olsson may have suffered a stroke, although the statement suggests that doctors have not made a diagnosis.

Announcement about Kristoffer Olsson

To be clear – there is no evidence that Kristoffer Olsson has suffered a vaccine injury of any kind. His football club made no such suggestion, and has clearly stated that his brain disease was not due to any “external factors”.

Not surprisingly, people have offered no evidence to back up their claims that Kristoffer Olsson suffered a COVID-19 vaccine injury.

If his doctors, family, and team, never said that Kristoffer Olsson was injured by the COVID-19 vaccine, why should you believe random strangers on the Internet who make such baseless claims???

Recommended : Did Andy Delort Collapse From Vaccine Death Spiral?!

Fact #2 : Kristoffer Olsson Was Diagnosed With Vasculitis

On 7 March, FC Midtjylland issued another statement, which revealed that Kristoffer Olsson had “an extremely rare inflammatory condition in the vessels of the brain“, which led to “several small blood clots on both sides of the brain“.

The status of Kristoffer Olsson, who has now been given a definitive diagnosis.

Although the statement does not reveal the “rare inflammatory condition” Kristoffer Olsson was diagnosed with, it likely refers to a type of central nervous system (CNS) vasculitis, which is an extremely rare disease that affects fewer than 3 in 1 million people.

If the blood vessel inflammation (vasculitis) is limited to the brain and spinal cord, and in the absence of bacterial or viral infection, or systemic autoimmune diseases like SLE, then it would be classified as primary angiitis of the central nervous system (PACNS).

There is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can trigger CNS vasculitis. In fact, if COVID-19 vaccines can cause CNS vasculitis, there would have been millions of cases of this extremely rare disease.

Fact #2 : Kristoffer Olsson Was Likely Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Kristoffer Olsson never revealed his COVID-19 vaccination status, but he was likely fully-vaccinated by September 2021. However, there is no evidence he just received another COVID-19 vaccine dose “weeks ago”

Kristoffer Olsson joined RSC Anderlecht on 21 July 2021, as part of Team A. On 16 September 2021, RSC Anderlecht announced that its entire Team A was vaccinated against COVID-19. So it is likely that Kristoffer Olsson was vaccinated by that date.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even though Kristoffer Olsson was likely fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his COVID-19 vaccine more than 2.5 years ago! He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not 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 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.

Did Yutaka Yoshie Die Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did Japanese wrestler Yutaka Yoshie die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine, right after an All Japan Pro Wrestling match?!

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

 

Claim : Yutaka Yoshie Died Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Yutaka Yoshie died suddenly after a wrestling match, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the Japanese professional wrestler was somehow killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

みらいのミライ : Professional wrestler Yutaka Yoshie has died at the age of 50. The cause of death is “arteriosclerosis”, and many people develop it due to the aftereffects of the corona vaccine. The corona vaccine contains highly toxic “graphene oxide” and “mercury”.

Recommended : Does COVID Vaccinated Blood Clot In Just 3 Minutes?!

 

Truth : Yutaka Yoshie Did Not Die Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Yutaka Yoshie Died After AJPW Match

Let me start by giving you a summary of what led to Yutaka Yoshie’s sudden death on Sunday, 10 March 2024.

Earlier that day, Yutaka Yoshie participated in an All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW) match, with Ryo Inoue against Hokuto Omori and Ryoji Sai. After the match, he went backstage for a press interview, before returning to the locker room where he suddenly collapsed.

Yutaka Yoshie was rushed to a nearby hospital in Takasaki, where he was declared dead at the age of 50. His death was announced by AJPW (translated):

Notice of the passing of Yutaka Yoshie

Fact #2 : Yutaka Yoshie Died From Arteriosclerosis

On 11 March 2024, Tokyo Sports reported that APJW Senior Managing Executive Officer Suwama revealed in an interview that Yutaka Yoshie’s cause of death was “due to arteriosclerosis“.

All the players are in shock. Professional wrestlers are in a profession where you never know what’s going to happen, but now that the timing has come…

According to Suwama, it was Yutaka Yoshie’s family who informed him that the cause of death was “due to arteriosclerosis“, and told him that “it was not caused by a professional wrestling match, so please don’t worry about it“.

Arteriosclerosis can lead to a heart attack, or a stroke – both of which can lead to Yutaka Yoshie suddenly collapsing in the locker room.

Recommended : Did British Study Confirm 1 Billion People Now Have VAIDS?!

Fact #3 : Arteriosclerosis Takes Many Years To Develop

Arteriosclerosis is a vascular disorder characterised by the abnormal thickening and hardening of the arteries, causing a loss of elasticity of arterial walls.

This is a gradual process that takes many years, and can begin as early as childhood! In fact, many people with arteriosclerosis are unaware they have it because they do not have symptoms until the hardened arteries lead to complications.

To be clear – there is no evidence any COVID-19 vaccine can cause arteriosclerosis, which takes many years to develop.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Reduce Risk In CVD Patients

People with cardiovascular disease tend to have poorer prognosis and more severe cardiovascular side effects when they contract COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccines help these patients reduce their mortality and morbidity, as shown in a May 2023 study published in the Journal of Lipid and Atherosclerosis.

As discussed above, increased risks of CVD and non-CVD complications are observed in COVID-19 patients with a history of CVD.

Ye et al. conducted a self-controlled case-series study to compare the risk of major cardiovascular events before and after BNT and CoronaVac vaccination. They found that both mRNA and inactivated viral vaccines did not increase CVD risk and actually reduced the risks in specific periods.

The findings remained consistent in different subgroups of sex, age, and underlying CVD (including coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease).

… this implies that for CVD patients, the benefits of vaccination outweigh its side effects.

In short – COVID-19 vaccines do not increase the risk in people with cardiovascular disease, and actually reduce their risk.

Truth : Dr. Vicky Jennings Did Not Die From Vaccine / Heart Attack!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Dr. Vicky Jennings Died After Celebrating Her Birthday

Let me start by giving you a summary of what led to Dr. Vicky Jennings’ sudden death on Sunday, 3 March 2024.

The night earlier, Dr. Vicky Jennings and her boyfriend went out to celebrate her 45th birthday. They had dinner and stayed overnight at a hotel. At 2 AM, when her boyfriend wanted to give her his birthday present, he could not wake her up.

Dr. Vicky Jennings’ death was officially announced by Netcare Limited – the South African hospital network at where she worked.

Dr Vicky Jennings was the embodiment of selfless, caring and committed service, dedicating her life as a surgeon to her patients in the public and private sector.

Dr Jennings was the clinical lead in trauma surgery at Netcare Milpark Hospital and the Netcare Milpark Academic Trauma Centre. She also worked as the Deputy Head of Trauma Surgery at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital.

She loved her work and what she described as her privileged life, often praising her colleagues, patients, friends and loved ones for making her journey an extraordinary one. She will forever hold a place in our hearts and memories.

Dr. Vicky Jennings was 45 years old when she died. Not 43 years old, as claimed by some people.

Recommended : Did British Study Confirm 1 Billion People Now Have VAIDS?!

Fact #2 : Dr. Vicky Jennings’ Cause Of Death Was Not Publicly Revealed

Netcare never revealed her cause of death as a heart attack. So it is odd that so many people are claiming that Dr. Vicky Jennings died from a heart attack, with some even attributing it to Netcare!

Dr. Jennings’ family also did not publicly reveal her cause of death. Even her mother-in-law, Geraldine Gilbert, only stated what a shock it was. She too did not reveal her cause of death, never mind blame it on the COVID-19 vaccines!

Thank you Val for those sweet words.💔 Such a shock to the system!

So why would anyone claim that she died from a heart attack caused by the COVID-19 vaccine??? Where is the evidence???

Fact #3 : Dr. Vicky Jennings Did Not Die From Vaccine / Heart Attack

Dr. Vicky Jennings was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, like most responsible doctors and healthcare workers. However, she did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine, or even a normal heart attack.

I know this because I reached out to a close family friend who revealed that an autopsy was conducted on Dr. Vicky Jennings. The autopsy and toxicology test reports have determined that Dr. Vicky Jennings did not die from a heart attack, and her death was not vaccine-related.

Her grieving family does not wish to publicly reveal her official cause of death, and I can understand why. All I can publicly confirm, with the help of this close family friend, is that Dr. Vicky Jennings died from an unrelated cause of death that had nothing to do with a heart attack, or the COVID-19 vaccine.

I should point out that none of those who claimed that Dr. Vicky Jennings died from a heart attack caused by the COVID-19 vaccine have ever offered any evidence, or even bothered to find out what really happened.

If, and when, her family decides to publicly reveal her cause of death, you will see that Dr. Vicky Jennings indeed did not die suddenly from a heart attack, or the COVID-19 vaccines. Until then, please respect their wish for privacy.

Does COVID Vaccinated Blood Clot In Just 3 Minutes?!

Does the blood of COVID vaccinated people clot in just 3 minutes, instead of 30 minutes?! Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : COVID Vaccinated Blood Clots In Just 3 Minutes!

People are sharing a video, claiming or suggesting that it shows that the blood of COVID vaccinated people will clot in just 3 minutes, instead of the usual 30 minutes!

Dr David Cartland / DiedSuddenly / Pennsylvania Is Trump / I’m No Angel / Whiplash347

This blood was taken from a vaccinated patient. After three minutes, she became like this.

It usually takes 30 minutes for blood to clot in an SST tube, not 3 minutes.

In the video, a lady can be heard speaking while presumably shaking a test tube containing clotted blood. She appears to claim that the test tube contained blood drawn from a patient that was clotting in just 3 minutes, instead of the usual 30 minutes. She claimed it was not normal.

This patient’s blood was drawn 3 minutes ago. Already clotting in the tube. Not normal. Takes a half hour usually.

Recommended : Did British Study Confirm 1 Billion People Now Have VAIDS?!

 

Truth : COVID Vaccinated Blood Does Not Clot In Just 3 Minutes!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Blood Typically Clots In 2-8 Minutes

Let me start by pointing out that human blood does not take 30 minutes to clot. Our blood typically takes only 2-8 minutes to clot (coagulate) using the capillary test tube method at 37°C.

Think about it for a second – if it really takes 30 minutes for our blood to clot, even a small cut would result in considerable blood loss!

Fact #2 : Serum-Separating Tube Is Designed To Speed Up Clotting

If you look at the test tube in the video, you will notice that it has a yellow- or gold-coloured stopper. You can also see a white-coloured gel at the bottom. That’s a serum-separating tube (SST).

These SSTs have micronised silica particles that help to quickly coagulate the blood through contact activation of coagulation factor XII. After the blood sample is drawn, the bottle is inverted several times to mix the blood with the silica particles and gel.

While the blood quickly starts to coagulate (clot) and separate, full coagulation of a large sample may take several minutes, depending on the SST used. Typically, lab technicians leave the blood sample to stand for 20-30 minutes (source), but thrombin-accelerated quick clotting serum test tubes (example) only need 2 minutes.

After the blood has clotted, the sample is centrifuged to separate whole blood cells from the serum. The gel at the bottom forms a barrier between the clot and the serum after centrifugation.

Recommended : Did study find Long COVID patients all received mRNA vaccine?!

Fact #3 : SST Clotting Time Can Vary Considerably

While laboratories generally allow blood samples in SST tubes to clot for 20-30 minutes on a rack, the true clotting time varies considerably (source), depending on whether the patient:

  • is on anticoagulant therapy – a longer clotting time is required
  • has liver disease of multiple myeloma – a longer clotting time is also required

In fact, if the patient is no high doses of heparin – the blood does not even coagulate!

Fact #4 : No Evidence Blood Sample Was Taken From Vaccinated Patient

If you listen carefully, the lady in the video did not actually claim that the blood sample was drawn from a vaccinated patient. There is no way to ascertain if the blood sample really came from a patient who was vaccinated against COVID-19.

Unless she was the patient’s doctor who elicited a comprehensive medical history, she would not know the patient’s COVID-19 vaccination status. A nurse or lab technician assigned to take blood, for example, would not be aware of the patient’s COVID-19 vaccination status.

But more importantly, even though the lady on the video did not claim that the blood came from a vaccinated patient, people are claiming that it shows blood from a vaccinated person. How did they know? There is simply no evidence the blood came from a vaccinated person.

Fact #5 : No Evidence Blood Sample Was Taken 3 Minutes Earlier

I should also point out that there is really no evidence that the video shows blood that was taken 3 minutes ago. We only have the anonymous lady’s word for that.

Now, if the video actually showed the blood being drawn, and the blood clotting in 3 minutes, that might have been something. But the short video does not tell us how long the blood has been inside that SST tube. It could have been a full 30 minutes.

Thomas Kingston : Cause Of Death Was Not Vaccine SADS!

Find out why Thomas Kingston – Lady Gabriella Windsor’s husband, did not die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine, and what was his real cause of death!

 

Claim : Thomas Kingston Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Thomas Kingston died suddenly at just 45 years of age, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the husband of Lady Gabriella Windsor, and Pippa Middleton’s ex died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine!

𝕏NEWS NANCY𝕏 : 🚨UK — Thomas Kingston, has died suddenly. He was 45.
Reports: No foul play.

We all know how common it is for a healthy 45-year-old man to die. Oh wait — it’s only BECOME common since the MANDATED rollout.

I’d like to say rest in peace, but NO ONE should be resting in peace until their family cares enough to INSIST on using the available vaccine technology to trace the death of origin.

Thomas Kingston : Cause Of Death Was Not Vaccine SADS!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on social media platforms like Facebook, and X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Thomas Kingston Died From Gun Shot

Let me start by simply pointing out that Thomas Kingston did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine, because he died from a “traumatic head wound“, with a gun found near his body.

This was revealed at the Gloucestershire Coroner’s Court on 1 March 2024, in an inquest into his sudden death, after a post-mortem was conducted.

According to senior coroner Katy Skerrett, Thomas Kingston had lunch with his parents at their family home in the Cotswolds on Sunday, 25 February 2024. His father then took their dogs on a walk, and on his return, Thomas was not in the house.

His father later found Thomas Kingston with “a catastrophic head injury”, after forcing entry into a locked outbuilding, and a gun was found at the scene. Police and paramedics were called to the scene at about 6 PM, after an unnamed family member made a 999 call.

These brief circumstances are as follows. Mr Kingston was visiting his parents’ home in the Cotswolds. On February 25 2024 he ate lunch with his parents. His father went out to walk the dogs.

On his return Mr Kingston was not in the house and after approximately 30 minutes his mother went to look for him. His father forced entry on a locked out building when no reply could be gained.

He found Mr Kingston deceased with a catastrophic head injury. A gun was present at the scene. Emergency services were called. Police are satisfied the death is not suspicious.

post mortem has been undertaken by Dr Jones, a consultant histopathologist, and a provisional cause of death has been given as a traumatic wound to head.

Having been satisfied with identification, initial cause of death and the brief circumstances surrounding Mr Kingston’s death, I can formally open this inquest. I now adjourn it to a date to be fixed. That concludes the opening of the inquest into the death of Thomas Henry Robin Kingston.

The official cause of death for Thomas Kingston was “a traumatic wound to the head“. While the inquest did not expressly say so, it appears that Thomas Kingston committed suicide by gun.

Obviously, no vaccine – not even the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine – can pull the trigger of that gun to cause a traumatic wound to Thomas Kingston’s head!

Recommended : Did Andy Delort Collapse From Vaccine Death Spiral?!

Fact #2 : Unknown If Thomas Kingston Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Thomas Kingston was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Thomas Kingston was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom.

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

Until and unless his family (or the authorities) reveal his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Thomas Kingston was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Thomas Kingston was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more than two 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.

Did Alexei Navalny Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Alexei Navalny die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Alexei Navalny Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Alexei Navalny died suddenly in a remote Russian penal colony, some people immediately claimed or suggested that Vladimir Putin’s most feared opposition leader was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Richard : So according to the most recent autopsy results of Alexei Navalny, the 47-year-old’s cause of death is a blood clot in the heart.

Doctors suspect it was caused by vaccination against the coronavirus with the Pfizer vaccine. Apparently Navalny was vaccinated four times…. #Navalny #AlexeiNavalny #Nawalny

Recommended : Did Amy Schumer Develop VAIDS After Third Booster?!

 

No Evidence Alexei Navalny Died From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccine 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-vaccine activists…

Fact #1 : Alexei Navalny Died Suddenly In Arctic Prison

Alexei Navalny (born Alexei Anatolyevich Navalny / Алексей Анатольевич Навальный on 4 June 1976) died suddenly at the FKU IK-3 Arctic Circle penal colony in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug on Friday, 16 February 2024.

His death was announced by the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) the same day, which stated that Navalny lost consciousness after a walk. Medical workers at the penal colony attended to him, and an emergency medical team was called.

On 02/16/2024, in correctional colony No. 3, convicted Navalny A.A. felt ill after a walk, almost immediately losing consciousness. The medical staff of the institution immediately arrived, and an ambulance team was called. All necessary resuscitation measures were carried out, which did not give positive results. The doctors of the emergency medical service pronounced the convict dead.

Several Russian state-owned news agencies reported that an ambulance arrived at the scene in less than 7 minutes, and performed resuscitation measures for more than half an hour. However, they failed to revive Alexeï Navalny, who was then pronounced dead at 2:17 PM local time.

His mother, Lyudmila Navalnaya, 69, received an official note the next day, on Saturday, 17 February. Alexei Navalny was 47 years old when he died.

Fact #2 : An Autopsy Is Being Conducted On Alexei Navalny

The Investigative Committee of Russia announced that “a set of investigative and operative measures” will be undertaken to determine Navalny’s cause of death, and his body would only be released to his family after the investigation was complete. The Russian authorities can legally hold his body for up to 30 days.

According to Novaya Gazeta, Alexei Navalny’s body was taken to Labytnangi, before being taken to a clinical morgue in Salekhard in the evening. His body allegedly had bruises consistent with chest compressions, which indicated that attempts were made to resuscitate Navalny.

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #3 : Alexei Navalny’s Cause Of Death Has Not Been Revealed!

It seems absurd for anyone to claim that Alexeï Navalny died from the COVID-19 vaccine, when his official cause of death has not been announced.

His mother was told by the prison that Alexei Navalny died from “sudden death syndrome”. However, there is no such diagnosis of death according to the ICD-10, which Russian doctors must follow.

In any case, “sudden death syndrome” has nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccines, and is a general term for any sudden, unexpected death from natural causes”.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), sudden death syndrome (SDS) is defined as the sudden, unexpected death from natural causes witnessed within one hour of symptom onset, or if there are no witnesses – death occurring within 24 hours of someone being seen alive and symptom-free.

Russian propaganda outlet RT, citing an anonymous source, reported that Alexei Navalny died from a blood clot. While that is possible, it is not possible for anyone to know that without first conducting an autopsy.

Until Alexei Navalny’s official cause of death is revealed after his autopsy is complete, take these claims with a pinch of salt. More so if the sources are Russian state-owned media outlets.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Alexei Navalny Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Alexei Navalny was fully-vaccinated, receiving four doses of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Alexei Navalny was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Russia. In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless his family (or the Russian authorities) reveal his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Alexei Navalny was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History?!

Fact #5 : Russia Never Approved Any mRNA Vaccines

Even if Alexei Navalny was vaccinated against COVID-19 in Russia, it is almost a certainty he never received any mRNA vaccine. That’s because Russia has never approved any mRNA vaccine to date.

Alexei Navalny was hospitalised in Germany in December 2020, and flew back to Russia on 17 January 2021, where he was immediately detained and imprisoned. This was before COVID-19 vaccination was available to his age group in Germany on 17 May 2021, so he couldn’t have gotten his mRNA vaccine then either.

Fact #6 : Russian Vaccines Do Not Have Four Doses

It also seems quite impossible for Alexei Navalny to have received four vaccine doses. as many have claimed.

After all, Russia only approved four COVID-19 vaccines, two of which were approved for a third (booster) dose. There is no fourth dose for any COVID-19 vaccine in Russia.

Even Alexei Navalny was vaccinated against COVID-19 in Russia, he would have received at most – three doses of the Sputnik V or Sputnik Light vaccines.

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

Even if Alexei Navalny was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more than two 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.

Did France Pass “Article Pfizer” Law To Ban mRNA Criticism?!

Did France just pass a new “Article Pfizer” law to ban and criminalise any criticism of mRNA vaccines?!

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

 

Claim : France Passed “Article Pfizer” Law To Ban mRNA Criticism!

People are sharing articles and/or a screenshot on X (formerly Twitter), which appears to show that France just passed a new “Article Pfizer” law to ban and criminalise any criticism of mRNA vaccines!

Dr. Kat Lindley : France: any criticism of mRNA platform punishable with up to 3 years imprisonment and 45,000 euros.

“Article 4 is central to the new law, which was first deleted but then reinstated. This creates a new criminal offense and criminalizes the “ request to stop or refrain from therapeutic or prophylactic medical treatment” as well as “the request to use practices that are presented as therapeutic or prophylactic ”. This means that any resistance to mRNA treatment (and other corporate medical methods) can be criminalized in the future.”

Recommended : Did COVID vaccines kill 14X more people than they saved?

 

Truth : France Did Not Pass “Article Pfizer” Law To Ban mRNA Criticism!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : French National Assembly Passed Article 4 On 14 February 2024

Let me start by pointing out that the controversial bill that has gotten anti-vaccine activists so riled up is called The Bill To Strengthen The Fight Against Sectarian Excesses And Improve The Support Of Victims. You can read the bill as it was presented to the Senate on 15 November 2023.

What particularly incensed them was Article 4 of that bill, which many are calling “Article Pfizer“. It failed the first vote on Tuesday, 13 February, but passed in the National Assembly with a vote of 116 to 108 on Wednesday, 14 February 2024.

Fact #2 : French Bill Does Not Involve Pfizer / mRNA

Regardless of what one may think of the new French bill or its Article 4, it does not have anything to do with Pfizer or the criticism of mRNA vaccines in France.

To the best of my knowledge – neither Pfizer nor mRNA vaccines were mentioned even once in the entire bill, or Article 4 itself! In fact, none of those who claimed that Pfizer and mRNA vaccines are involved ever provided any evidence they were mentioned in the bill!

If that’s true, you have to wonder – why do some people claim that the French bill, or its Article 4, would fine or imprison anyone who criticises or refuses to accept mRNA vaccines???

Recommended : Does Pfizer CEO aim to cut world population by 50%?

Fact #3 : Article 4 Targets Health Disinformation

As the La Chaîne parlementaire (LCP) explained, Article 4 of the bill made it a crime to incite the “abandonment of care” in France.

Specifically dedicated to therapeutic-type excesses, this Article 4 creates a new crime aimed at punishing “the provocation to abandon or refrain from following medical-therapeutic or prophylactic treatment“, as well as “the provocation to adopt practices presented as having a therapeutic or prophylactic purpose“, when these incentives may be “particularly serious” for physical or mental health.

In other words – Article 4 of this French bill makes it a crime to convince or encourage people not to accept reasonable medical treatment or prophylactic treatments (like vaccines), or to undertake treatments that can cause serious physical or mental harm.

Why would anyone want to continue letting unscrupulous people promote fake cures, or mislead people about proven medical treatments and prophylactics???

Recommended : Did Scientists Call For Global mRNA Vaccine Moratorium?!

Fact #4 : French Bill Targets Self-Declared “Gurus”

As LCP explained in a separate article, the overall bill targets “sectarian excesses in the digital space and the new gurus 2.0“, pointing out that the COVID-19 pandemic enabled many of these “gurus” to take advantage of social networks to promote sectarian excesses:

The text also stresses that “the health crisis has been an ideal ground for these new sectarian excesses. New forms of “gurus” or self-proclaimed master thinkers act online, taking advantage of the vitality of social networks to federate real communities around them.”

In other words – if the bill passes and becomes law, it only endangers self-proclaimed “gurus” and cults that use social media and the Internet to snare their victims.

There does not seem to be any provision in the law to fine or imprison people in France who criticise mRNA vaccines, or pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer.

Fact #5 : Article 4 Was Amended Before Passage

According to LCP, Article 4 was amended after it first failed to pass, to include these amendments:

  • a crime would not be committed when proof of the free and informed consent of the person is provided”
  • whistleblowers of such crimes would be protected as “the information reported or disclosed by the whistleblower under the conditions provided for in Article 6” of the aforementioned law “does not constitute a provocation

In other words, these gurus would not be guilty of any crime if the people they convince to go against proven medical treatments acknowledge that they provided their free and informed consent.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History?!

Fact #6 : French Bill Isn’t Law Yet

While many people claim that the bill or its Article 4 were passed into law, that is simply not true. As of 16 February 2024, this bill, and its Article 4, has not become law in France.

After the amended Article 4 passed on 13 February, the entire bill passed in the National Assembly the next day – on 14 February 2024, with an overwhelming 151 to 73 vote. Even so, that does not make the bill a law yet.

For one thing – that was only the first reading in the National Assembly. The bill now goes to the Senate for its approval or amendments, before returning to the National Assembly for its second reading if there are any amendments.

Only after the final bill is approved by both houses, can it then be sent to the President of France for his signature. Assuming there is no request for a constitutional review, the bill only becomes law once the French President signs it, and the Prime Minister countersigns it, and it is sent to the Journal Officiel for publication.

Fully vaccinated former Dallas Cowboys lineman Tony Hutson has died at the age of 49, leaving doctors and family baffled.

Recommended : Died Suddenly Movie : More Vaccine Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Tony Hutson Died From Vaccine SADS!

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 : Tony Hutson Died On 3 February 2024

Tony Hutson (born Antonio Hutson on 13 March 1974), who played as an offensive lineman in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins (now Washington Commanders), passed away on 3 February 2024.

His death was only revealed in the middle of February, when his obituary and funeral details were released:

Serenity Gardens Funeral Services

Funeral Service
2:30 to 4:30 PM, Saturday, February 17, 2024

Fact #2 : Tony Hutson’s Cause Of Death Was Not Revealed!

While many people are claiming that Tony Hutson died suddenly from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect, they have offered no evidence to back up their claims.

In fact, it is impossible for us, Joe Public, to know that, because Tony Hutson’s cause of death has not been revealed!

Tony Hutson could have died from any number of common causes of death in the United States – cancer, car accident, stroke, suicide, heart attack, cardiac arrest, and yes, COVID-19.

Until and unless his family, or the coroner’s office, announces his official cause of death, anyone who tells you that Tony Hutson die from this or that cause is likely lying to you.

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Tony Hutson Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Tony Hutson was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Tony Hutson was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

After all, Tony Hutson retired from professional football in 2001 – more than 23 years ago! Even if he was still playing professional football, he would not have been required to get vaccinated – there was no vaccine mandate for players or coaches in the NFL!

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

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

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Tony Hutson was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more than two 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.

Did Britain Secretly Euthanise Elderly To Boost COVID Deaths?!

Did the British government secretly euthanise elderly hospital patients to boost COVID-19 deaths?!

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

 

Claim : Britain Secretly Euthanised Elderly To Boost COVID Deaths!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims or suggests that a new study showed that the British government secretly euthanised elderly hospital patients to boost COVID-19 deaths!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) rambling article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

New Study: British Gov’t Secretly Euthanized Elderly Hospital Patients To Boost ‘Covid Deaths’

Recommended : Midazolam Murders: Were deaths falsely blamed on COVID-19?!

 

Truth : Britain Did Not Euthanised Elderly To Boost COVID Deaths!

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

Fact #1 : Paper Was Preprint Article

Let me start by pointing out that the paper that are being quoted is an article called Excess Deaths in the United Kingdom: Midazolam and Euthanasia in the COVID-19 Pandemic by Wilson Sy – an investment analyst.

This article does not appear to have undergone peer review. It’s listed as a preprint on ResearchGate, and was accepted for publication in Medical & Clinical Research (which charges $3,916 for each paper) in less than a week:

Submitted : 20 Jan 2024
Accepted : 25 Jan 2024

While that does not mean its findings are necessarily wrong, such preprint papers should not be relied upon as “established information”. It very much needs to be investigated, analysed, and verified.

Even the peer-review process is merely the first step in the scientific review process, which would be followed by replication, verification, and criticism by other researchers.

Fact #2 : Paper Does Not Show Deaths Caused By Midazolam

You might expect that the paper would at least show evidence for tens of thousands of deaths that were caused by Midazolam. Unfortunately, it shows nothing of the sort.

Did it look at death certificates or medical records to determine that those deaths were caused by Midazolam, and not COVID-19? No, that would be far too much work…

All it appears to do is try and prove some kind of correlation between excess deaths and the number of Midazolam injections in the United Kingdom. And when it could not show a correlation, it adjusted the chart temporally by one month, and voilà! that looks like correlation!

The only problem is – Midazolam is a short-acting drug, with a half-life of just 1.5 to 2.5 hours. It cannot possibly kill someone one month after injection!

Not only does this paper not show that any of the deaths were actually caused by Midazolam, it does not even show any correlation between Midazolam usage and excess deaths in the UK!

Recommended : Did Pfizer Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History?!

Fact #3 : Midazolam Is Used To Sedate Patients

Midazolam is infamous for being used to execute people sentenced to death, as well as an end-of-life medication. However, it has far more common and less morbid uses.

Midazolam is a short-acting benzodiazepine that is frequently used to sedate patients before they undergo surgeries, as well as medical /dental procedures. It is also used to treat prolonged seizures, or sedate agitated patients.

It is not surprising that Midazolam usage should spike during the COVID-19 pandemic, as it  is one of the two most commonly-used drugs used to sedate patients in the ICU. It is also used to sedate patients before they are intubated and placed on mechanical ventilation.

Many of us may forget, but many ICUs were overwhelmed with patients who had to be intubated and placed on mechanical ventilation during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, many hospital wards (and even parking lots!) were converted into temporary ICUs to accommodate the surge of patients requiring mechanical ventilation.

In fact, if you think about it – it makes sense for excess deaths to spike days, weeks, or months, after a spike in Midazolam usage. It would suggest that people were dying after receiving Midazolam while critically ill in the ICU, or being intubated for mechanical ventilation.

Fact #4 : Many Deaths From COVID-19 Were Confirmed

Just over 73,000 people died from COVID-19 in the United Kingdom in 2020, with the vast majority – 94.6% confirmed as “deaths due to COVID-19”.

Deaths listed as “Confirmed COVID-19” were confirmed through tests, while deaths that were clinically determined to be caused by COVID-19 were listed as “Suspected COVID-19” if no test was available at that time, or the test result was not conclusive (source).

Regardless of whether you believe that Midazolam had any hand in these deaths, one thing is for sure – the vast majority of these deaths were confirmed to have been caused by COVID-19.

Recommended : Are Vaccinated People Developing Full Blown AIDS?!

Fact #5 : Many Critially-Ill COVID-19 Patients Died

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many critically-ill patients had to be intubated and placed on mechanical ventilation as they could no longer breathe on their own. Midazolam is used to sedate such critically-ill patients, so its use would go up with the number of critically-ill patients being treated in the ICU, or placed on mechanical ventilation.

Unfortunately, a large percentage of patients on ventilator died, with some hospitals reporting mortality rates of 50% to 97%. An early report on the mortality of patients on ventilator at three hospitals in Georgia showed that approximately 30% of patients dying after being ventilated, and another 8.5% remaining on ventilation.

Just because many of those patients died while in the ICU or on mechanical ventilation does not mean that those machines, or the oxygen they provided, caused their deaths. It certainly does not mean that the Midazolam they received for sedation killed them.

Fact #6 : Euthanasia Is Illegal In United Kingdom

Finally, I should point out that both euthanasia and assisted suicide are illegal throughout the United Kingdom, and can be prosecuted as murder or manslaughter.

Doctors in the UK can only assist their patients in hastening their deaths by withholding treatment and reducing pain, and even then, only when they feel that “death is only a few days away”.

Fact #7 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing 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:

Can You Use Magnet To Detect Heavy Metals In Tea Bags?!

Can you use a magnet to detect heavy metals in tea bags?! Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Use Magnet To Detect Heavy Metals In Tea Bags!

People are sharing a video, which appears to show how a magnet can be used to detect heavy metals in our tea bags! It’s also being used to promote alternative healthcare products to detox or purge your body of these “heavy metals”.

Died Suddenly : They put metals in baby formula, vaccines, and also our food. Why?

Recommended : Did The WEF Just Declare War On Coffee?!

 

Truth : You Cannot Use Magnet To Detect Heavy Metals In Tea Bags!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Was A Herbal Tea Bag

Let me start by pointing out that the tea bag in the viral video is not a typical black / green tea bag that many of us commonly consume.

I traced the tea bag to the Swiss company, Coop, which produces and sells this tea bag as Alpenkräuter-Tee mit Orangenminze. or Organic Alpine Herbal Tea with Orange Mint, under the Naturaplan brand.

This tea bag does not contain any actual tea from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis. Instead, it only contains herbs, and orange mint:

Nettle (Switzerland), goldenrod (Switzerland), orange mint 20% (Switzerland), lemon balm (Switzerland). All agricultural ingredients come from organic production.

Fact #2 : Most Heavy Metals Are Not Magnetic

The video shows a magnet being used to separate and capture some blackish powder. While it is impossible to determine what the blackish powder is from a low-resolution video, that is likely oxidised iron filings (rust).

It is unlikely for magnets to pick out heavy metals, because most of them are not magnetic. The only three elemental metals that are naturally ferromagnetic, and can be “detected” by a magnet, are iron, cobalt, and nickel.

Coincidentally, those three are also micronutrients that are essential for human health, so we won’t count them in the “bad” heavy metals category for the purpose of this article. The “bad” heavy metals that we really want to avoid in our diet, like arsenic, lead, cadmium, thallium, etc. are not magnetic, and cannot be picked up by any magnet.

Therefore, it is highly likely that the blackish powder seen in the video is just iron filings, which is easily picked up by a magnet, and is also a common contaminant in tea. I will explain in the next section…

Recommended : Is Food Being Fried With Plastic To Last Longer?!

Fact #3 : Iron Filings Are Common Contaminants In Tea

What many people don’t know is that iron filings are a common contaminant in tea powder and tea bags, due to the manufacturing process, which relies on iron machinery.

To make tea powder or the crushed tea leaves used in tea bags, the tea leaves are dried in a sieve fitted with an iron mesh. The dried tea leaves are then cut using iron rollers, before being crushed by crushing / shredding machines made of iron.

The final shredded / powdered tea leaves will naturally contain fine iron particles. Even though large magnets are used to remove those iron filings, some will inevitably remain in the tea.

That is why food authorities worldwide have limits on how much iron content is allowed in tea. For example, Sri Lanka sets the maximum limit at 200 milligrams per kilogram of tea, while the permissible limit in India is 150 mg/kg (although tea producers here have asked for the limit to be increased to 500 mg/kg).

Did COVID vaccines kill 14X more people than they saved?!

Did a study just show that COVID-19 vaccines killed 14x more people than they saved?!

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

 

Claim : COVID Vaccines Kill 14X More People Than They Saved!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that a study just showed that COVID-19 vaccines killed 14x more people than they saved!

Here is an excerpt from the long, and (intentionally?) rambling article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Peer-Reviewed Study Finds Covid Vaccines Killed 14x More People Than They Saved

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

 

Truth : COVID Vaccines Did Not Kill 14X More People Than They Saved!

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

Fact #1 : Study Did Not Show 14X More People Died From Vaccines

Let me just start by pointing out that the study, which is called “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign” by Mead et. al. (archive), did not show that the COVID vaccines killed 14X more people than they saved.

Fact #2 : Cureus Relies On Post-Publication Peer Review

The People’s Voice article took great pains to point out that the paper was “peer-reviewed”, probably to suggest that it should be taken seriously. That’s not exactly accurate.

Even though this paper was marked as “peer-reviewed”, the peer review process at Cureus is “unusually fast” at just a few days. That’s because the journal Cureus relies on “post-publication peer review“, as its Editor in Chief John R. Adler explained to Retraction Watch in 2015:

Yes, Cureus has an unusually fast review process, which is an important part of the journal’s philosophy. We believe that post publication peer review, a focus of our journal through commenting and our unique SIQ process, is potentially a more powerful way to discern truth.

In other words – the pre-publication peer review appears to be superficial, and Cureus relies on the scientific community to peer-review the papers after publication.

Even if the paper was properly peer-reviewed by a prestigious journal, that would only be the first step in the scientific review process, which would include replication and verification, as well as criticism by other members of the scientific community.

Recommended : Pfizer Vaccine Causes Autism? Rats Are Not Mini Humans!

Fact #3 : Paper Regurgitates Long-Debunked Claims

The paper in question is a literature review, and was penned by notable anti-vaccine activists like Jessica Rose, Steve Kirsch, and Peter McCullough. You may note that some of the authors are not even scientists or were trained in medicine.

While it is being heralded as something new, the paper appears to be nothing more than a regurgitation of long-debunked claims about mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. It certainly offers no evidence to back up their claim for a vaccine moratorium. Let’s just take a look at a few:

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinical Trials Were Too Short?!

The paper claimed that no vaccine was permitted for market release without a testing period of at least four years, using the mumps vaccine by Merck as example. That’s not true.

The Mumpsvax (Jeryl Lynn strain) vaccine was developed and approved in a record four years, but its testing did not last four years. The mumps vaccine clinical trial in 1966 (abstract) only lasted 6 months.

This paper gives the results of a large field trial of the vaccine conducted among schoolchildren in North Carolina.

Vaccination was carried out in November 1966, every tenth child receiving a placebo preparation. Serum specimens were obtained at the time of vaccination and 4 weeks later from 556 children representing a cross-section of the total group of participants.

During the 180 days of post-vaccination surveillance, 56 cases of mumps were reported among the study population and 69 cases among non-participants.

There is no requirement by health authorities that testing or assessing any vaccine should last 10 years. The typical vaccine development time of 10-15 years is not a reflection of how much time a clinical trial needs to run, but rather the time it “generally” takes to create a vaccine, gather resources, get approvals, run clinical trials, process the data, file for approval, etc.

COVID-19 vaccines were so quickly developed because scientists all over the world collaborated on the effort, while governments funded their development, and fast-tracked their clinical trials and manufacturing preparations.

The speedy development of COVID-19 vaccines was also enabled by new vaccine platforms using mRNA or DNA technologies, in which genetic information from the new virus only needed to be “plugged in” to produce a new vaccine.

More importantly – the paper provided no evidence that the accelerated development of COVID-19 vaccines has actually resulted in unsafe vaccines.

Recommended : Do COVID-19 Vaccines Cause Long-Term Heart Damage?!

mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Were Not Proven Safe / Effective?

The Mead et. al. paper claimed or suggested that the clinical trials did not show that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were safe or effective because too few people in the unvaccinated (placebo) group died from COVID-19.

Well, not only is that a “misunderstanding” of the clinical trial results (see the next section), many studies have been conducted into the safety and efficacy of the mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 since they were deployed.

Those real world studies (example, example, example) consistently showed that the mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 are safe and effective.

Low Absolute Risk Shows No Need To Vaccinate?!

The Mead et. al. paper repeats the old trope that the low absolute risk (AR) seen in the mRNA vaccine clinical trials mean there is no need for anyone to get vaccinated. That’s simply not true, and is a (deliberate?) misunderstanding of statistical calculations.

The Absolute Risk Reduction (ARR) will “always appear low” because it depends very much on the “event rate”. As the Meedan Health Desk explained:

Let’s say a study enrolled 20,000 patients into the control group and 20,000 in the vaccine group. In that study, 200 people in the control group got sick and 0 people in the vaccine group got sick.

Even though the vaccine efficacy would be a whopping 100%, the ARR would show that vaccines reduce the absolute risk by just 1% (200/20,000= 1%).

For the ARR to increase to 20% in our example study with a vaccine with 100% efficacy, 4,000 of the 20,000 people in the control group would have to get sick (4,000/20,000= 20%).

Hence, the Relative Risk Reduction (RRR) is used instead to determine a vaccine’s efficacy, because it tells us how much risk is reduced in the vaccinated group, compared to the unvaccinated control group.

To be clear – the clinical trials and post-vaccination monitoring and studies have clearly shown that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are effective in preventing severe disease and deaths from COVID-19.

Recommended : Did Norway Study Show mRNA Vaccine Danger In Children?!

mRNA Vaccines Do Not Prevent Transmission?!

The Mead et. al. paper claimed that the CDC said that “COVID-19 products would stop transmission”, but in the end “COVID-19 mRNA products do not prevent transmission or infection”. Well, that’s not really true.

For one thing – the CDC never said that COVID-19 vaccines would stop transmission. In fact, the CDC article the paper linked to only said that the vaccines appear to reduce (not stop) transmission:

… a growing body of evidence suggests that COVID-19 vaccines also reduce asymptomatic infection and transmission.

To be clear – the COVID-19 vaccines were primarily designed to reduce or prevent severe disease and death, which is why transmission for not an endpoint for their clinical trials. It would have been a nice bonus to block transmission completely, but partially reducing transmission is not too bad.

mRNA Vaccines Have A Lot Of AESIs?!

The Mead et. al. paper warns us about the many Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) reported after COVID-19 vaccinations. The problem is – those AESI are not actual vaccine side effects!

The AESI list for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for example has 9 pages of 1,291 adverse events, but that is not a list of the mRNA vaccine side effects. It is a list of “adverse events” that Pfizer must look for during the post-vaccination monitoring period. Not only are these “adverse events” not specific to the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, they include:

  • diseases like Herpes, MERS, Varicella, and other “communicable disease”,
  • exposure to SARS-CoV-2,
  • manufacturing and lab test issues, and even…
  • product availability and supply issues!

Needless to say – those adverse events are not vaccine side effects, or are any indication of vaccine performance or safety in any way.

Recommended : Do COVID-19 Vaccines Increase Risk Of Long COVID?!

Lots Of Deaths + Hospitalisation Were Reported?!

The Mead et. al. paper also claimed that two large drug safety reporting systems in the US and Europe have over 7.8 million reports of adverse events, with “death, hospitalisations, and life-threatening reactions”. It is probably referring to VAERS and EudraVigilance.

The thing is – VAERS / Yellow Card / EudraVigilance data are all unverified, and may contain duplicated information. That’s why they are all prefaced with warnings like:

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

In addition, open systems like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, are very susceptible to abuse because they allow anyone from anywhere to post anything they want, without evidence or verification.

Anti-vaccination activists can, for example, key in unlimited numbers of adverse reaction reports, even if they never received a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Autopsy Reports Show Deaths Caused By Vaccines?!

The Mead et. al. paper claimed that “autopsy studies” showed that 74% of deaths were “judged to have been caused by the COVID-19 mRNA products”.

The problem is – the study it referred to was a preprint by one of its own authors – Peter McCullough, that was removed by The Lancet for violating its “screening criteria”.

This preprint has been removed by Preprints with The Lancet because the study’s conclusions are not supported by the study methodology. Preprints with The Lancet reserves the right to remove a paper that has been posted if we determine that it has violated our screening criteria.

Not only was that study just a “review” of autopsy reports, many of the cases had other far more likely causes of death.

Recommended : Did mRNA Vaccines Trigger Severe Nerve Damage?!

mRNA Vaccines Are Contaminated By DNA?!

The paper suggested that the mRNA vaccines are contaminated with DNA “orders of magnitude higher than the EMA’s limit”.

The truth is – residual DNA is found in all biological products manufactured using cells, and has not shown any health risk after being studied for many decades.

In any case, the amount of residual DNA in mRNA vaccines were found to be far below regulatory limits.

Pfizer Vaccine Has DNA From SV40 Virus That Causes Cancer?!

The paper also warned about the Simian Virus 40 (SV40) promoter found in samples of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine. Why? Because it warns – the SV40 virus “induces lymphomas, brain tumors, and other malignancies in laboratory animals”.

First of all – after decades of studies, there is still no conclusive evidence that the SV40 virus can cause cancers in humans. However, out of an abundance of caution, the SV40 virus is considered to potentially cause cancer in humans.

In any case, the SV40 promoter is a DNA sequence that is often used to manufacture mRNA, and is not dangerous. It certainly poses no cancer risk, because the part of the SV40 that can potentially cause cancer – the T-antigen, is not present in the SV40 promoter, or the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

Did Bill Gates Just Admit To Committing Planetary Genocide?!

Did Bill Gates just admit to committing planetary genocide in an interview with USA Today?!

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

 

Claim : Bill Gates Just Admits To Committing Planetary Genocide!

People are sharing a video clip on X (formerly Twitter), while claiming or suggesting that Bill Gates just admitted to committing planetary genocide in an interview with USA Today!

Liz Churchill : “We just need to mess around with all of the Nano-lipid Particles to make more vaccines”. -Bill Gates admitting to committing Planetary Genocide.

Arrest this Monster.

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Planning To Kill Billions Using Turbo AIDS?!

 

Truth : Bill Gates Did Not Admit To Committing Planetary Genocide!

This is yet another example of fake news created / shared by anti-vaccine activists, or conspiracy theorists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : USA Today Video Is Over Two Years Old!

Let me start by pointing out that the USA Today interview that people are sharing isn’t new. Heck, it’s more than two years old!

USA Today published that interview on 27 January 2021, with the title – Bill Gates predicts mRNA will be a game changer for vaccines over next 5 years.

Fact #2 : Bill Gates Did Not Admit To Committing Genocide

Bill Gates is, no doubt, a very popular bogeyman for conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccine activists. But this claim is just silly, and makes them look like absolute idiots.

The USA Today video does not show Bill Gates admitting to committing genocide of any kind, neither the planetary variety or just the local stuff. Anyone can see that.

Those making these claims that “Bill Gates admitting to committing Planetary Genocide” offered no evidence to back them up. The video is actually proof that Bill Gates did no such thing.

In the interview, Bill Gates was predicting the mRNA vaccine platform’s potential to treat or eradicate many other diseases. At no point in time did he ever admit to committing genocide… of any kind.

Fact #3 : mRNA Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

Tens of billions of doses of mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 have been administered worldwide over the last 3 years, and have been proven in multiple studies to be safe and effective. Here are just some examples:

In fact, the very fact that the world has been able to reopen completely after the COVID-19 pandemic is a testament to the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines, which include mRNA vaccines from Pfizer, BioNTech and Moderna.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Fake News About Bill Gates

This is ultimately just more fake news being created / spread about Bill Gates. Here are some other recent examples:

Why Alec Musser Did Not Die From COVID-19 / Vaccine!

Find out why TV actor Alec Musser did not die suddenly from vaccine SADS, or COVID-19 even though he was fully-vaccinated!

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

 

Claim : Alec Musser Died From COVID-19 / Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Alec Musser died unexpectedly at just 50 years of age, some people immediately claimed that the the former TV star died suddenly from vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), while others suggested that he died from COVID-19 even though he was fully-vaccinated!

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Alec Musser Did Not Die From COVID-19 / Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity 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 : Alec Musser Died In His Home

Alec Musser (born Alexander Barrett Musser on 11 April 1973) was an American actor and fitness model, who starred in the popular soap opera, All My Children after winning the reality TV contest, I Wanna Be A Soap Star, in August 2005.

His fiancee, Paige Press, last saw him on Friday night, 12 January 2024. She found Alec Musser dead at their home in Del Mar, California, the next morning. Paramedics and law enforcement officers responded to the scene, and confirmed his death.

Paige would later tell Fox News that Musser was suffering from “a severe case of COVID”, and she believes he died from the illness. She also said that an autopsy would be conducted.

He was a very healthy person. I mean he took exceptional care of his body and what went into it. …He’d eat some cookies and that was the worst thing I ever saw him do.

Fact #2 : Alec Musser Died By Gun Suicide

On Tuesday, 16 January 2024, the San Diego Medical Examiner’s Office revealed that Alec Musser died by suicide, and that his death was gruesome. He apparently shot himself in the chest using a shotgun.

According to TMZ (archive), the story was quite different from what was reported earlier. Apparently, Paige Press went to bed on Friday evening, and woke the next morning to find Alec Musser slumped over on their bathroom floor, with the shotgun near him.

Case Number : 2024-00141
Name : MUSSER, Alexander Barrett
City of Residence : Del Mar
State of Residence : California
DOB : 04/11/1973
Gender : Male
Place of Death : Found, home, 345 10th Street, Del Mar, California, 92014, San Diego, USA
Place of injury : Home, 345 10th Street, Del Mar, California, 92014, San Diego, USA
Date and time of death : 01/13/2024 0643
Date and time of Injury : 01/–/2024 Unk
Summary : The decedent was a 50-year old White male who lived with his fiancée in a home in Del Mar. His fiancée last knew him to be alive on the evening of 01/12/2024 when she had gone to bed. On the morning of 01/13/2024, she awoke and went to find the decedent seated and slumped forward on the bathroom floor. She noted a firearm near him and an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest and called 911. Paramedics and law enforcement responded and confirmed the death.
Cause of Death/Updated CoD : Shotgun wound of the chest
Contributing Conditions : None
Manner : Suicide
Investigating Agency : San Diego Sheriff
Next of kin notified : Yes

So there you have it – definitive proof that Alec Musser died by suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Alec Musser did not die from severe COVID-19, vaccine SADS, or any COVID-19 vaccine side effect.

Recommended : Did Brooke Shields Collapse From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Alec Musser Had Severe COVID-19

According to Fox News, his fiancee said that Alec Musser was suffering from severe COVID-19, and she believed he died from COVID-19.

However, the San Diego Department of Medical Examiner’s case report did not mention that Alec Musser tested positive for COVID-19, or was suffering from COVID-19.

Fact #4 : Alec Musser Was Likely Vaccinated

According to Fox News, his fiancee said that Alec Musser was fully-vaccinated and boosted. While I would chalk that up as “likely” true, I would not call it definitive as the same Fox News report (archive) also claimed that his fiancee believed that he died from COVID-19.

As the coroner’s office stated, Paige Press found Alec Musser dead from a gunshot to his chest. So it would be most peculiar for her to claim that he died from severe COVID-19, or point out to Fox News that he was fully-vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19.

His fiancée, Paige Press, says Musser was suffering from “a severe case of Covid,” and believes he died from the illness. He was both vaccinated and boosted. She says he died at their home in Del Mar, California.

In any case, Alec Musser’s death by gun suicide had nothing to do with whether he was fully-vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19.

Did George Soros Just Suffer A Stroke At WEF 2024?!

Did billionaire financier George Soros just suffer a stroke while speaking at the 2024 World Economic Forum?!

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

 

Claim : George Soros Just Suffered A Stroke At WEF 2024!

People are sharing a video on X (formerly Twitter), while claiming or suggesting that billionaire financier George Soros just suffered a stroke while speaking at the 2024 World Economic Forum!

DiedSuddenly : Globalist vaxx pusher and tyranny expert George Soros appears to have experienced a stroke on live television while giving his speech at the WEF.

Recommended : Is Hungary Prosecuting George Soros For Holocaust?!

 

Truth : George Soros Did Not Suffer Any Stroke At WEF 2024!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was Not Recorded At WEF 2024

First, let me start by pointing out that the video is genuine. However, it was not recorded at the 2024 World Economic Forum.

Rather, it was recorded 11 months earlier, on 16 February 2023, at the TUM (Technical University of Munich) Speaker Series, which was an official side event to the Munich Security Conference.

The video was then uploaded to YouTube in the official TUM Speaker Series channel on 22 March 2023.

Fact #2 : George Soros Did Not Attend WEF 2024

It is peculiar that people would claim that George Soros suffered a stroke at the 2024 World Economic Forum. As far as I can tell – George Soros did not attend the 2024 World Economic Forum at all!

Instead, he was replaced by his son, 38 year-old Alexander Soros, who took over as Open Society Foundations chairman from his father in 2022. Alex Soros spoke on the closing day of the 2024 WEF on Friday, 19 January 2024.

George Soros also skipped the 2023 World Economic Forum, but attended the Munich Security conference a month later, where the viral video was originally recorded.

Recommended : Did George Soros Die Suddenly From Heart Attack?!

Fact #3 : Soros Did Not Suffer A Stroke

While it is really a terrible idea to diagnose anyone by simply watching a video, George Soros does not appear to suffer from a stroke during that speech.

At about 05:10 of the full video, George Soros appears to zone out for about 23 seconds, before recovering and continuing with his speech.

Other than that momentary “freeze”, he did not appear to exhibit any symptoms of a stroke – difficulty speaking, drooping of one side of the face, weakness of one side of the body, etc.

Soros then spoke normally for another 5 minutes or so, before a video montage was shown. At 17:31, he went on to speak non-stop for another 30 minutes. In the full video, he spoke for about 40 minutes in total – pretty impressive for a 92 year old man (at that time).

Was Brad Pitt Just Found Dead From Suicide?!

Was Brad Pitt just found dead from suicide?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Brad Pitt Was Just Found Dead From Suicide!

People are sharing YouTube videos and Facebook posts claiming that Brad Pitt just died, or was found dead from suicide, with titles like :

FOX Breaking News: Brad Pitt found dead (Suicide)

R.I.P country actor Brad Pitt passed away last night, fans burst into tears.

Recommended : Did Justin Bieber Just Die In A High Speed Car Crash?!

 

Truth : Brad Pitt Was Not Found Dead From Suicide!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from scams, page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Brad Pitt Suicide Ad Was FB Malware

Let me start by warning you that the Brad Pitt being found dead from suicide was a malware scam that circulated through a Facebook advertisement.

Those who clicked on it were directed to a scam website which tries to trick users into installing malware, rogue Facebook apps, rogue antivirus scanners, or tricked into divulging personal information through fake surveys.

Some were also asked to allow a fake Fox News app to gain permission to their profiles. Those who bypassed the permission pop-up were directed to a fake story about Brad Pitt’s suicide:

Brad Pitt, 52, a multi-awarded American actor and husband of Angelina Jolie, 41, shot himself in the head at a shooting range on Sunday. He was under significant stress because the couple “were going through a divorce and he had a history of depression”, sources have said.”

After extensive media coverage, Facebook finally issued a warning to advise people not to click on the fake advertisement, and to warn those who did so earlier, to change their account passwords and scan for malware.

Fact #2 : Brad Pitt Is Still Alive

Brad Pitt (born William Bradley Pitt on December 18, 1963) is still alive as of 21 January 2024. In fact, he was just spotted in public several days ago!

Even though Brad Pitt is notoriously a very private person, he was seen entering the Gagosian Gallery with his new girlfriend, Ines de Ramon, on Friday, 19 January 2024.

Wearing a brown leather bomber jacket, Brad Pitt looked very healthy for someone who is supposed to have died!

Recommended : Did Simon Cowell Just Die In A Car Accident?!

That night, Brat Pitt and Ines de Ramon attended an exhibition by his Moneybag director, Bennett Miller. Britney Spears’ ex-husband, Sam Asghari, was also there. He asked Pitt for a selfie, and later went to chat with Pitt’s former in-laws, James Haven and Jon Voight.

As you can clearly see, Brad Pitt is still very much alive… and looking great!

Fact #3 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported Brad Pitt’s death.

Brad Pitt is one of the most famous celebrities in the world. If he only tripped and fell while walking along Hollywood Boulevard, it would have been international news, covered by celebrity blogs and media outlets.

No legitimate media outlet, or even celebrity blog, reported that Brad Pitt was found dead from suicide, or died suddenly from any cause, because it’s simply not true. Why should you believe some small-time or YouTube channel or random Facebook posts?!

Fact #4 : Brad Pitt Funeral Photos Were Edited

I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of two examples used in many of these videos.

This photo used to show Brad Pitt’s funeral is actually a photo from the funeral of Fernando Gaitan, the Colombian TV producer and screenwriter who created the telenovela Yo soy Betty, la fea, which has been adapted in multiple countries.

The funeral was held in Bogota, on Thursday, 31 January 2019. Obviously, that was not Brad Pitt’s funeral, as he was very much alive at that time!

The fake news creator merely added a photo of Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie holding up his photo.

Recommended : The Sara Lee Car Accident / Death Video Scam!

This photo does not show Brad Pitt’s coffin being carried out during his funeral. It actually shows the coffin of one of the six Philpott children during their funeral in June 2012. They were murdered by their parents, Mick and Mairead Philpott, who set fire to their home.

If you look carefully, you can see that the pallbearers are carrying multiple coffins. Did it not strike you strange that Brad Pitt’s funeral would have more than one coffin???

Also, the coffin looked remarkably small for an adult. That’s because the coffin was for a 10 year-old little girl called Jade. The fake news creator merely tacked on a photo of Brad Pitt to fool you into believing that it was his funeral.

Fact #5 : Brad Pitt Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Brad Pitt death hoax, ironically, is also being driven by another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project.

News of actor Brad Pitt’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the January 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the actor best known for his roles in Fight Club, Legends of the Fall or A River Runs Through It is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Brad Pitt Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Brad Pitt’s unnamed reps confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justine Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Did Autopsies Show COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Deaths?!

Did autopsies just show COVID-19 vaccines likely causing deaths in 100% of vaccine myocarditis cases?!

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

 

Claim : Autopsies Show COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Deaths!

People are sharing an article by The Epoch Times which claims or suggests that autopsies just showed COVID-19 vaccines likely causing deaths in 100% of vaccine myocarditis cases!

Here are excerpts from the long, rambling article. Please skip to the next section for the facts!

Autopsies Show COVID-19 Vaccines Likely Caused Deaths: Study

Twenty-eight deaths with cardiovascular involvement outlined in medical literature were likely caused by COVID-19 vaccination, according to a new study.

Recommended : Do mRNA vaccines have 1 in 800 severe adverse event rate?!

 

Truth : Autopsies Did Not Show COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Deaths!

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

Fact #1 : An Earlier Version Was Removed By The Lancet

Let me start by pointing out that this study appears to be an “updated” version of an earlier study which was uploaded to Preprints with The Lancet in July 2023.

That earlier study was never published by The Lancet, but was removed because its conclusion was not supported by the methodology, and violated its screening criteria.

This preprint has been removed by Preprints with The Lancet because the study’s conclusions are not supported by the study methodology. Preprints with The Lancet reserves the right to remove a paper that has been posted if we determine that it has violated our screening criteria.

Fact #2 : Researchers Did Not Conduct Those Autopsies

To be clear – both studies were basically document reviews. None of the researchers in both studies actually conducted any of the autopsies. This was what the researchers did in the “improved” Hulscher et. al. study (archive):

  • search for autopsy reports involving COVID-19 vaccination-induced myocarditis
  • filter the 1,691 studies they found to just 14 papers covering 28 autopsies
  • three of the authors (Peter McCullough, Roger Hodkinson, and William Makis) then “independently” reviewed the autopsy reports and determined the “causality” of each case

According to Brian Ward, professor of experimental medicine at McGill University, that likely meant the three of them went through the autopsy reports in separate rooms.

The way they use the word ‘independently’ here simply means that each of the biased individuals sat in a separate room to reach a personal conclusion before sharing their (largely pre-determined) classifications with each other.

Recommended : Did mRNA Vaccines Trigger Severe Nerve Damage?!

Fact #3 : Many Cases Had Other Likely Causes Of Death

Interestingly, if you go through the summary of those 28 autopsy reports, you will quickly see that some of those cases had other likely causes of death:

Nushida Case 1 : This 14 year-old female had Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS) – a serious condition caused by COVID-19.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Myocarditis Seen Mostly In Young Males

Myocarditis and pericarditis are known but rare side effects of COVID-19 vaccines. It is mostly seen in adolescent and young male adults, and usually within 7 days of receiving the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the US CDC.

It is therefore perplexing that this study suggested that quite a number of very elderly patients died from myocarditis caused by the vaccine. It seems more likely that they developed myocarditis from other causes, or died from other causes.

Mörz Case 1 : 76 year-old man who also had encephalitis.

Recommended : Is FDA Refusing To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

Fact #5 : Myocarditis Also Occurs Naturally

I should also point out that myocarditis occurs naturally, usually though viral infections (like flu or the common cold), as well as infections by bacteria, fungus, or parasites.

COVID-19 infections aside, the “baseline” of myocarditis in the general population pre-COVID ranged b between 1 to 10 cases per 100,000 individuals per year (source). Of that, about 2.5% of the non-COVID-19 myocarditis will result in death (source).

In other words, we should expect about 375,000 cases of myocarditis worldwide, with approximately 9,375 deaths per year, in the pre-COVID years.

So is it not possible that some of those 28 deaths mentioned by the Hulscher et. al. study may be due to other non-vaccine causes of myocarditis?

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Myocarditis Is More Common

What the study may not tell you is that COVID-19 is known to cause myocarditis. In fact, the CDC reported in September 2021 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.

The risk of dying from COVID-19 myocarditis (13.54% of cases) is also almost 5X higher than non-COVID-19 myocarditis (2.88% of cases), according to a 2022 German study.

If you are worried about dying from myocarditis, well, you should certainly want to avoid getting a COVID-19 infection!

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Fact #8 : Vaccine Benefits Far Outweighs The Risks

Even if we take all those 28 myocarditis cases mentioned in the Hulscher et. al. study at face value, the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination still far outweighs the risk of dying from vaccine myocarditis.

Vaccine myocarditis is rare – the study could only find 28 cases that satisfied its criteria, while myocarditis from COVID-19 infections are far more common.

People suffering from COVID-19 are also almost 5X more likely to die from myocarditis, than people suffering from non-COVID myocarditis (source).

So if you are really worried about myocarditis, or dying from myocarditis, you should definitely get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Did China Just Develop 100% Lethal COVID Virus?!

Did scientists in China just develop a new COVID virus that is 100% lethal to “humanised” mice?!

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

 

Claim : China Just Developed 100% Lethal COVID Virus!

People are sharing articles with alarming headlines that claim or suggest that scientists in China just developed a new COVID virus that is 100% lethal to “humanised” mice!

China Develops New Covid Strain With 100% Mortality In Humanised Mice

As such, some people are claiming on social media that Chinese scientists were creating bioweapons or Disease X through Gain-of-Function experiments:

DiedSuddenly : New study shows that a new lab created disease out of China (Disease X) has a 100% fatality rate in humanized mice by infecting the nervous system.

Recommended : New DARPA Docs Confirm COVID-19 Was Created In China?!

 

Truth : China Did Not Develop New COVID Virus!

Let’s take a look at the study, and find out why scientists in China did not actually developed a new lethal COVID strain!

Fact #1 : Chinese Study Has Not Been Peer-Reviewed

First, I should also point out that the Chinese study, which was conducted by Lai Wei et. al. has not been peer-reviewed – the first step or many in the scientific review process.

Hence, it has not been published in a journal, but in bioRxiv – a preprint server operated by the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL). You can read the paper in full here.

While that does not mean its findings are wrong, such preprint papers should “not be considered for clinical application, nor relied upon for news reporting as established information“, as per CSHL.

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Means Coronavirus Disease 2019

I should also point out that COVID-19 is short for Coronavirus Disease 2019, and it refers to the disease, not the virus. COVID-19 is not the name of the virus, which is called SARS-CoV-2.

Even though there are many diseases caused by coronaviruses, there is only one disease named under this convention, which is COVID-19, and it is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. So it would be wrong to refer to other coronaviruses, or the diseases that they cause, as COVID.

Fact #3 : Chinese Study Was Done On GX_P2V Virus

The Chinese study did not perform any research on the COVID-19 coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Instead, it was conducted on a mutated variant of GX_P2V, which is a pangolin coronavirus.

As they had never studied this GX_P2V mutant variant, the Chinese scientists decided to clone and test its pathogenicity in hACE2 mice.

Recommended : Jeffrey Epstein List : Watch Out For Fake Lists!

Fact #4 : The GX_P2V Virus Mutated In Cell Culture

Right at the beginning, the study authors pointed out that they did not “create” the GX_P2V virus. Instead, it spontaneously mutated when the original GX/2017 virus was cultured in 2017.

  • A coronavirus related to SARS-CoV-2 was identified prior to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2017. Hence, it was called GX/2017.
  • The virus was cultured in 2017, and the isolate was called GX_P2V.
  • The GX_P2V virus isolate was found to infect both golden hamsters and hACE2 mice (transgenic mice that express the human ACE2 receptor), although it did not appear to cause disease.
  • It was later discovered that the virus mutated while it was cultured into a mutant that had 104 nucleotides deleted at the 3′-UTR site. This mutated variant was named as GX_P2V(short_3UTR).

From what was written in the paper, the Chinese scientists were not conducting Gain-of-Function (GoF) experiments. The GX_P2V coronavirus mutated on its own while being cultured.

The scientists even pointed out in their paper that coronaviruses have a “propensity” to “undergo rapid adaptive mutation in cell culture”. They were merely testing this mutant that was discovered earlier, but they did not test before.

Fact #5 : Type Of hACE2 Mice Used May Affect Results

hACE2 mice are transgenic mice that were developed to express the human ACE2 (Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2) receptor. Multiple hACE2 mice models have been created (example), expressing the human ACE2 in different tissues.

The Lai Wei et. al. study used the hACE2 mouse model from Beijing SpePharm Biotechnology Company, which was created using the random integration technology.

As the authors noted, the company has not published any papers on its mouse model, but their results suggest that the human ACE2 may be “highly expressed” in the brain of this particular hACE2 mouse model. If so, that could explain why the infection caused death through brain infection.

The authors also noted that these hACE2 mice had “abnormal physiology”, with “relatively reduced serum triglyceride, cholesterol, and lipase levels”.

Fact #6 : An Earlier Study Contradicted Their Findings

The study authors pointed out that their report was the “first” to show that a pangolin coronavirus can cause 100% mortality in hACE2 mice. They also pointed out that their results were “inconsistent” with that of the earlier Zhengli Shi et. al. study.

The Zhengli Shi et. al. study (source), which tested the GX_P2V(short_3UTR) mutant variant, found that it caused lung infections without severe disease in two different hACE2 mouse models.

Our findings are evidently inconsistent with those of Zhengli Shi et al. (5), who tested the virulence of GX_P2V in two different hACE2 mouse models.

The authors cautioned that there may be differences between their GX_P2V(short_3UTR) mutant variants as they may have mutated further during their respective laboratory cultures.

Again, this does not mean that both teams were conducting Gain-of-Function (GoF) modification of the pangolin coronaviruses. They were testing a variant of the GX_P2V pangolin coronavirus that spontaneously mutated through cell culture adaptation.

But these contradictory findings of the GX_P2V(short_3UTR) mutant means there is more work to be done. For certain, the Lai Wei et. al. study would need to be peer-reviewed, and verified through replication.

In short – more research is needed, and no, Chinese scientists did not just create a bioweapon…

Is China Preparing Mobile Cremation Vans For Disease X?!

Is China preparing mobile cremation vans for Disease X, which has a 100% mortality rate?!

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

 

Claim : China Prepares Mobile Cremation Vans For Disease X!

People are sharing a video on X (formerly Twitter), while claiming or suggesting that China is buying up, or assembling, mobile cremation vans for an outbreak of Disease X, which has a 100% kill rate!

DiedSuddenly : Reports out of China are saying that a new disease X is emerging with a 100% kill rate on the lab tested mice.

At the same time, China is assembling mobile crematoriums. How do you interpret this?

Recommended : Is Australia Building mRNA Vaccine Cardiac Arrest Registry?!

 

Truth : China Is Not Preparing Mobile Cremation Vans For Disease X!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Disease X Does Not Exist

First, let me start by pointing out that Disease X does not exist. Disease X is merely a placeholder name for a hypothetical, unknown pathogen that could cause a future epidemic.

It is used by healthcare organisations and policy makers as an easy way to label an unknown disease that could potentially emerge in the future.

If a new pathogen emerges, it won’t be called Disease X. Remember when news first broke about a new coronavirus emerging in Wuhan, China, at the end of 2019? It wasn’t called Disease X then.

Initially, the WHO called it the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, or 2019-nCoV. Then, the disease itself was named as COVID-19, while the virus that causes it was named as SARS-CoV-2.

Fact #2 : Disease X Was Adopted By WHO In 2018

Disease X itself isn’t even new, being adopted by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in February 2018. Its genesis is even older.

Disease X was “created” as part of pandemic preparations initiated in May 2015, when the WHO was asked by member nations to generate ideas to reduce the time lag between the identification of viral outbreaks, and the approval of vaccines and treatments.

To address the very real possibility of an unknown infectious disease that could potential cause a future epidemic or pandemic, the WHO added Disease X as a placeholder name for that “knowable unknown” pathogen in February 2018.

Fact #3 : There Is No Disease X In China

To be clear – there is no Disease X in China, or anywhere else in the world. Needless to say, claims that Disease X has killed 100% of lab-tested mice are also false.

Recommended : Did COVID-19 Vaccines Cause 17 Million Deaths?!

Fact #4 : Video Shows A Mobile Pet Cremation Van

These fake news posts attach a video of mobile cremation vans to scare you into believing that China has an outbreak of Disease X, or that there is a conspiracy to create a Disease X pandemic.

The truth is – this appears to be a promotional video for mobile cremation vans for pets! It’s even mentioned in the video, at around the 30 second mark (thanks, Yuh Hui!):

宠物殡葬专用火化车
全 国可上牌年检
操作简单 自动点火

Special cremation vehicle for pet funerals
Annual license inspection is available nationwide
Easy to operate, automatic ignition

At around the 18 second mark, the video also states that the cremation chamber measures 90 cm x 130 cm. That is only big enough for a pet, like a cat or a dog. Such mobile pet cremation vans are common in Japan and Korea.

Recommended : Did mRNA Vaccines Trigger Severe Nerve Damage?!

Fact #5 : Cremation Requires A Lot Of Energy

While cremation is popular in China, and is used extensively to handle bodies of people who died from COVID-19, it is not practical to use mobile crematoriums. After all, it takes a lot of energy and time to create bodies.

Cremating a body takes 2-4 hours, at temperatures of 760-1,150 °C. That’s roughly equal to the amount of fuel the van would need to drive some 7,725 kilometres (4,800 miles)! A van would not be large enough to hold a human-sized crematorium, or have enough fuel to cremate a single body.

It also doesn’t make sense for China to use mobile cremation vans, when it has over 7,000 crematoriums, which are capable of cremating some 6 million bodies (in 2021).

Is Australia Building mRNA Vaccine Cardiac Arrest Registry?!

Is Australia building the world’s largest sudden cardiac arrest registry to solve the mystery of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine sudden cardiac deaths?!

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

 

Claim : Australia Is Building mRNA Vaccine Cardiac Arrest Registry!

People are sharing a post on X (formerly Twitter), which claims or suggests that Australia is building the world’s largest sudden cardiac arrest registry to solve the mystery of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine sudden cardiac deaths!

It’s a very long post, so feel free to skip right to the next section for the facts!

William Makis MD : Australia is building World’s Largest Sudden Cardiac Arrest Registry to solve the “mystery” of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Sudden Cardiac Deaths

Recommended : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

 

Truth : Australia Sudden Cardiac Registry Not Related To mRNA Vaccine!

This appears to be yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Australia Cardiac Arrest Deaths Unchanged For 40 Years

According to the 9News article that was the basis for this claim, more than 25,000 Australians experience a cardiac arrest every year. What the viral post does not mention is that this has been going on for many years, and certainly long before COVID-19 vaccines were approved.

In fact, the incidence of cardiac arrest deaths has remained “largely unchanged in the past 40 yearsaccording to the End Unexplained Cardiac Death (EndUCD) organisation:

The UCD under 50 death rate has remained largely unchanged in the past 40 years.

Cardiovascular deaths have declined dramatically fro Australians over the age of 50, driven by the message of healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise. Unfortunately these factors do not provide protection against UCD under 50.

Fact #2 : Australia Cardiac Arrest Deaths Not Attributed To mRNA Vaccines

The same 9News article pointed out that doctors have been unable to determine the cause of up to 40% of these sudden cardiac arrests. However, it never once mentioned mRNA vaccines as a cause.

In fact, the 9News article shared the story of Bryan Maris who died suddenly in his sleep from a cardiac arrest. His sudden cardiac arrest death was not attributed to the mRNA vaccine, but was attributed to a genetic condition called Brugada syndrome, which can cause fast, irregular heartbeats.

His wife, Jessica Maris, said that a simple electrocardiogram at the right time could have saved her husband’s life. Their son, Jack, also had Brugada’s syndrome, which was detected in a screening after his father died:

Jack has been identified as having Brugada thanks to the screening that took place because of Bryan; I would’ve loved to have identified Bryan; and not needed to have had a sudden cardiac arrest in the family to be able to identify when a family member is at risk of sudden cardiac arrest

Fact #3 : CODEX-SD Isn’t First Australian Cardiac Arrest Registry

The CODEX-SD Registry may be the world’s largest cardiac arrest registry, but it isn’t the first cardiac arrest registry in Australia.

The EndUCD Registry started operation in 2019before the COVID-19 pandemic, and about two years before the first mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 was ever approved!

That’s because many Australians have been suffering from cardiac arrests every year, long before mRNA vaccines were invented.

Fact #4 : US CARES Registry Started In 2004

Unexplained sudden cardiac arrest deaths have long afflicted people all over the world, long before any mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 was ever invented, never mind approved.

In fact, the US CDC and the Department of Emergency Medicine at Emory University established the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES) in 2004, as a way to better improve the survival of cardiac arrest victims.

The truth is – sudden cardiac arrest isn’t something new. It has been killing people long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Did COVID-19 Vaccines Cause 17 Million Deaths?!

Did researchers discover that COVID-19 vaccines were “causally linked” to 17 million deaths?!

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

Updated @ 2024-01-09 : Refreshed for the revival of this claim on social media
Originally posted @ 2023-10-03

 

Claim : COVID-19 Vaccines Caused 17 Million Deaths!

People are sharing an article by The Epoch Times which claims or suggests that COVID-19 vaccines did not save lives, but instead, resulted in 17 million deaths in 17 countries!

Here is an excerpt of The Epoch Times article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts:

Researchers Find COVID Vaccines Causally Linked to Increased Mortality, Estimate 17 Million Deaths

Recommended : Did FDA + CDC Hide Data On Failing COVID Vaccines?!

 

Truth : COVID-19 Vaccines Did Not Cause 17 Million Deaths!

In this article, I will go through some of their points, and show you what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : It Was A Self-Published Report

First, let’s start by pointing out that the paper in question (PDF download) is not a published scientific report, but a self-published report by Correlation Research in the Public Interest.

As far as we can tell, it has not been submitted to any scientific or medical journal for publication. Even if a scientific report has not been peer-reviewed, it would be available as a pre-print.

Fact #2 : It Has Not Been Peer-Reviewed

There is also no indication that this report has undergone even the basic peer review process. In fact, The Epoch Times confirmed this at the end of their very long article.

It’s important to note the scientific report has not yet been peer-reviewed. Articles that are ultimately accepted by peer review are often revised prior to publication, indicating potential for improvement.

In other words – subject matter experts have yet to inspect their data and findings, never mind verify and authenticate them. Perhaps this should have been mentioned right from the start?

Fact #3 : World Mortality Dataset Covers 103-124 Countries

The World Mortality Dataset (WMD) is a public database maintained by two researchers – Ariel Kaplinsky and Dmitry Kobak, that has been tracking the mortality rates of 103 countries since January 2021. They later expanded their data to cover 124 countries.

It is peculiar that Correlation Research in the Public Interest would focus only on 17 countries, out of 103-124 countries in the World Mortality Dataset. Why not look at ALL countries covered by the WMD data?

Recommended : Did Japan Order Investigation Of COVID-19 Vaccine Deaths?!

Fact #4 : There Was No Causal Link To Vaccines

The World Mortality Dataset is a big and critical tool for tracking all cause mortality for many countries around the world. However, it is ultimately just a database of all-cause mortality.

There is no way it can be used to demonstrate the causality of any particular cause of death. After all, it only tracks all-cause mortality! It doesn’t differentiate between death from a car accident or a fall, from death from COVID-19, or death from a vaccine injury.

Hence, if you go through the long Correlation Research report (180 pages!!), you don’t see an actual causal link between those spikes in deaths, and COVID-19 vaccines (or any other potential cause of death).

Fact #5 : Eurostat Data Shows Vaccination Reduced Excess Mortality

Perhaps the reason why the European countries were left out of this Correlation Research report is because the Eurostat data showed a strong correlation between high COVID-19 vaccination rates and low excess mortality.

In this chart provided by @dobssi, you can see that the 2021 excess mortality is much lower in countries with high vaccination rates, than countries with low vaccination rates.

Interestingly, two of those highly-vaccinated countries are Australia and New Zealand, both of which had low excess mortality rates in 2021.

The Eurostats data appear to show that Australia has only a small spike in excess death, while New Zealand actually had LOWER excess deaths after vaccinating its population. Imagine that…

Recommended : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #6 : Those Countries Have Seasons

The report claim to look at 17 equatorial and Southern Hemisphere countries because they have “no summer and winter seasons”, so there won’t be “seasonal variations” in their mortality patterns.

But the truth is – countries in equatorial and southern hemispheres have at least two seasons, instead of four seasons typically seen in the Northern Hemisphere.

Take Thailand, for example – a tropical country that evokes images of sandy beaches and warm weather. Well, Thailand actually has three seasons:

  • a wet season that runs from May to October,
  • a cool season that runs from November to February, and
  • a hot season that runs from March May

Its capital, Bangkok, itself experiences wide variations in temperature throughout the year – from as low as 21°C in the winter, to as high as 37°C in the summer.

And how exactly does proximity to the equator affect the SARS-CoV-2 virus or the COVID-19 vaccine??

Fact #7 : Those Countries Have Different Vaccination Rates

It is hard to understand why those 17 countries were chosen out of 103-124 countries in the World Mortality Dataset. Especially when they have different vaccination rates.

Yes, the report states that these countries comprise 9.1% of the global population and 10.3% of all COVID-19 vaccine injections. That gives us the impression that they are all highly-vaccinated countries.

That’s really not the case. These countries have very different vaccination rates, ranging from 44% to 97%!

Country 1 Dose ≥ 2 Doses
Argentina 14% 77%
Australia 2% 95%
Bolivia 60%
Brazil 6% 82%
Chile 2% 90%
Colombia 12% 72%
Ecuador 85%
Malaysia 2% 84%
New Zealand 1% 95%
Paraguay 56%
Peru 6% 83%
Philippines 79%
Singapore 1% 92%
South Africa 46%
Suriname 3% 44%
Thailand 5% 78%
Uruguay 5% 83%

If they did not select those countries for their high vaccination rate, then why choose those countries and not the dozens of other countries located near the equator?

Why not pick large countries like Indonesia or India? Why not pick small countries like Brunei or Maldives? Why pick South Africa when there are many other African countries much closer to the equator?

Did they cherry-pick those countries because their data fitted the narrative, or was it something else?

Fact #8 : World Mortality Dataset Study Identified COVID-19 As Cause

The two researchers who maintained the World Mortality Dataset (WMD) actually published a peer-reviewed study in the eLife journal, on 30 June 2021.

Unlike this Correlation Research report, this was an actual peer-reviewed study, published in a journal and the NIH National Library of Medicine. It was also written by the two people who knows the WMD database best – the very people maintaining and updating it!

Both Ariel Kaplinsky and Dmitry Kobak used their WMD data to look at the impact of COVID-19 on the all-cause mortality from 103 countries, and here was what they found:

We found that in several worst-affected countries (Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Mexico) the excess mortality was above 50% of the expected annual mortality (Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Mexico) or above 400 excess deaths per 100,000 population (Peru, Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Serbia). At the same time, in several other countries (e.g. Australia and New Zealand) mortality during the pandemic was below the usual level, presumably due to social distancing measures decreasing the non-COVID infectious mortality

Summing up the excess mortality estimates across all countries in our dataset gives 4.0 million excess deaths. In contrast, summing up the official COVID-19 death counts gives 2.9 million deaths, corresponding to the global undercount ratio of 1.4.

In other words – many people were likely being killed by COVID-19 infections, which appear to be undercounted by some 40%.

To be clear – their data do not show COVID-19 vaccines causing those deaths, never mind 17 million deaths!

Did mRNA Vaccines Trigger Severe Nerve Damage?!

Was the mRNA vaccines just shown to trigger severe nerve damage, including multiple sclerosis?!

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

 

Claim : mRNA Vaccines Trigger Severe Nerve Damage!

The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) activist group, which is chaired by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., just posted an article suggesting that Brazilian researchers uncovered two cases of serious nerve damage in patients who received mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

This was what was posted on the CHD page on X (formerly Twitter):

Children’s Health Defense : 🚨 COVID vaccine triggers nerve damage, MS

Brazilian researchers have uncovered two cases of serious nerve damage in patients who received mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

Here is an excerpt from the CHD article (archive). Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

COVID vaccine triggers nerve damage, MS

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

 

No Evidence mRNA Vaccines Trigger Nerve Damage!

Let’s take a closer look at the various claims in the article, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : It Was A Case Presentation

Let me start by pointing out that the Brazilian paper in question was a case presentation submitted to Neuroimmunology Reports, called Multiple Sclerosis and Optic Neuritis triggered by COVID-19 mRNA by Moretti, Fabiani, et. al.

You can read it in full here.

Fact #2 : Paper Did Not Conclude mRNA Vaccines Cause Nerve Damage

If you read the conclusion, you will note that the authors never actually concluded that mRNA vaccines causes nerve damage. The authors only pointed out that such cases should be reported, and that “more studies are still needed”. Here is the relevant quote from the paper, with my emphasis underlined.

Diseases or symptoms triggered or linked to this new vaccine technology must be reported and studied, contributing to worldwide databases.

More studies are still needed on the association between neurological complications and the vaccine against COVID-19. Long-term monitoring is needed if the vaccine can cause or trigger neurological disorders.

Fact #3 : Paper Says Vaccine Benefits Outweigh The Risks

Anyone who reads the conclusion will also realise that the authors actually pointed out that the benefits of vaccinating against COVID-19 outweigh the risks. On top of that, they said that no neurological condition is an absolute contraindication for vaccinating against COVID-19.

Overall, the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks of neurological complications, and, to date, no neurological condition is an absolute contraindication for vaccination against COVID-19.

Recommended : SAFECOVAC: Vaccine Myocarditis Risk Less Than 1 In Million!

Fact #4 : AstraZeneca Vaccine Is A Virus Vector Vaccine

With all due respect to the authors, the editors and the peer-reviewers, I should point out that the first case report does not involve any mRNA vaccine.

The first case involved the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, which is a virus vector vaccine. It is not an mRNA vaccine.

ChAdOx1 was not the vaccine’s name either. Rather, ChAdOx1 was the name of the modified chimpanzee adenovirus the Oxford-AstraZeneca used as its vector.

Fact #5 : First Patient Already Had Multiple Sclerosis

What may not be obvious, but was mentioned in the paper, was that the first patient – who received the AstraZeneca vaccine, already had multiple sclerosis (MS).

The authors pointed out that she already met the 2017 McDonald’s criteria for multiple sclerosis. That meant that this patient had prior MRI-detected lesions, or oligoclonal bans in the spinal fluid, or prior clinical symptoms of MS.

This is because a key requirement for the diagnosis of MS is Dissemination In Time (DIT) – there must be evidence of damage, at different times, and to different parts, of the central nervous system (source).

In fact, the authors pointed out that the COVID-19 vaccination only triggered the symptoms, but did not actually cause multiple sclerosis. Here’s the relevant quote, with my emphasis underlined.

The female patient met the McDonald’s (2017) criteria for multiple sclerosis, and the vaccine only triggered the symptoms.

I should point out that multiple sclerosis patients often suffer such relapses of symptoms that are triggered by anything from viral infections to stress. Certain vaccinations involving live viruses or bacteria can also trigger a relapse.

Since the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine (Vaxzevria) uses a modified chimpanzee virus, it is plausible that it may trigger symptoms in multiple sclerosis patients.

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #6 : Multiple Sclerosis Can Cause Optic Neuritis

The second patient in the Brazilian case presentation developed optic neuritis – inflammation of the optic nerve. Optic neuritis is most commonly seen in multiple sclerosis patients.

Even though this 8 year-old boy is not known to have multiple sclerosis, the authors noted that a brain MRI showed three small acute hypertension lesions in his brain. Such brain lesions developing in multiple places over time (Dissemination in Time, DIT) are highly suggestive of multiple sclerosis, as per the McDonald criteria.

In other words – it is possible that this patient may also have multiple sclerosis that may not have been previously diagnosed, whose symptoms was triggered by the vaccine – just like in the first case.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Infection Can Cause Optic Neuritis

I should also point out that past COVID-19 infections can cause optic neuritis. In fact, this January 2022 case study published in the Indian Journal of Ophthalmology detailed three patients who developed optic neuritis weeks or months after recovering from mild COVID-19 infections.

The authors noted that in those three patients, demyelinating lesions were identified in two cases, while the third case was found with serum anti-myelin antibodies.

  • Patient 1 suddenly lost vision in his left eye two weeks after recovering from mild COVID-19.
  • Patient 2 lost vision in his left eye six months after recovering from mild COVID-19.
  • Patient 3 lost vision in his left eye twice, two weeks after recovering from mild COVID-19, and then again four weeks later.

All three patients recovered their vision, but as you can see – COVID-19 infections can potentially cause optic neuritis long after recovery. It is plausible that the second patient in the Brazilian case presentation may have had a prior COVID-19 infection (before his vaccination).

That is why we cannot draw conclusions from any of these case reports / presentations. They all need to be investigated to determine their actual cause.

Recommended : COVID-19 Vaccines Estimated To Cause 17 Million Deaths?!

Fact #8 : Both Patients Recovered

It is also important to note that neither patients mentioned in this Brazilian case presentation died.

The first patient recovered partially after treatment with methylprednisolone, and was discharged with the treatment of dimethyl fumarate.

The second patient was also treated with methylprednisolone, and experienced a complete recovery, with no further treatment.

Methylprednisolone is often used in symptomatic attacks of multiple sclerosis. Dimethyl fumarate is also a treatment of multiple sclerosis.

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

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

Fact #1 : Daniela Costa Died From Breast Cancer

First, let me just point out that Daniela Costa (born 1981 in Barcelona, Spain) died on 15 December 2023 from breast cancer. She did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine or mRNA vaccine side effect.

It is surprising to see people claiming that a cause of death was not provided. Her husband, Oskar Salcedo, who announced her death on Facebook, clearly stated that she died from breast cancer.

Fact #2 : Breast Cancer Is Deadliest Cancer In Women

According to the Spanish Network of Cancer Registries, breast cancer is the deadliest cancer in women for the year 2020 (PDF), accounting for 15.1% of all cancer deaths in women.

On top of that, Spain has been seeing a yearly increase of 0.9% in breast cancer cases every year, from 2002 to 2020. This yearly increase was seen years before COVID-19 vaccinations started in earnest.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Daniela Coasta Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite suggestions that Daniela Costa was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Daniela Costa was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Spain. In fact, as of May 2023 (source), Spain only fully vaccinated 85.7% of its population, with a further 1.3% receiving only one dose. That means about 13% of Spaniards remain unvaccinated against COVID-19.

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

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

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Daniela Costa was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her doses more than two years ago!

She 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.

Did Pamela Villanueva Collapse From Vaccine On Live TV?!

Did Mexican TV host Pamela Villanueva collapse from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect on live TV?!

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

 

Claim : Pamela Villanueva Collapsed From Vaccine On Live TV!

People are sharing a video of Pamela Villanueva collapsing on live TV, suggesting that the Mexican TV host was suffering from some kind of COVID-19 vaccine side effect!

DiedSuddenly : Another one live on air. Pamela Villanueva, a young newscaster, collapses on live television.

Recommended : Did Study Show COVID-19 Vaccines Can Worsen Cancer?!

 

Truth : Pamela Villanueva Did Not Collapse From Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded In December 2023

First, let me just confirm that the video is genuine, and was recorded on 28 December 2023. The videos that were shared by many people appears to have been posted by the TV station itself – TeleDario Monterrey.

It shows Pamela Villanueva hosting a broadcast on TeleDiaro Monterrey, before she suddenly stopped talking and staggered forward unsteadily. Although it does not show Pamela Villanueva actually fainting, the TV station reported that she did indeed faint:

Pamela Villanueva, host of Telediario in Monterrey, fainted during the live broadcast.

Fact #2 : Pamela Villanueva Recovered 

Interestingly, the original post by TeleDiaro Monterrey specifically stated that Pamela Villaneuva was treated by medical personnel and was in stable health.

People who shared that video from TeleDiaro Monterrey would have known that. Why would anyone still share the video while suggesting that she might have died?

Less than an hour after that initial post, TeleDiaro Monterrey ran a segment, in which its reporters spoke to Pamela Villanueva on the phone on live TV. She told the audience that she was fine:

“I’m fine, it was just a decompensation”: Pamela Villanueva confirms that she is in good condition after fainting during the transmission.

Fact #3 : Reporters Often Seen Fainting On Live TV

Anti-vaccine activists often share videos of reporters fainting on live TV, as evidence that they are suffering some kind of vaccine side effect…. as if COVID-19 vaccines are somehow targeting them because of their profession!

The truth is – people can and do faint for all kinds of reasons. Reporters are just more visible, because they happen to be broadcasted on live TV when they faint!

Many of those reporters faint from syncope and hypotension from prolonged standing, dehydration, or not eating properly. They recover quickly on the spot, and do not require further medical intervention.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Pamela Villanueva Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite suggestions that Pamela Villanueva was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Pamela Villanueva was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Mexico. In fact, as of October 2023 (source), Mexico only fully vaccinated 64% of its population, with a further 12% receiving only one dose. That means about 1 in 4 Mexicans remain unvaccinated.

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

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

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

Did 5 Singapore Airlines Pilots Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did five SIA pilots die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine side effects, after Singapore Airlines demanded that they get fully-vaccinated?!

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

 

Claim : Five Singapore Airlines Pilots Died Suddenly From Vaccine In 7 Months!

People are sharing obituary photos of five SIA pilots, suggesting that they died suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine side effects, after Singapore Airlines demanded that they get fully-vaccinated!

aussie17 : 5th Singapore Airlines Pilot died last week in a span of 7 months.
The airline has apprx 3000 pilots. can someone calculate the odds?

Recommended : Did Study Show COVID-19 Vaccines Can Worsen Cancer?!

 

No Evidence Any SIA Pilots Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : Their Cause Of Death Are Unknown

First, let me just confirm that there were indeed five Singapore Airlines pilots who died between the months of May and December 2023, based on their obituaries:

However, none of their obituaries mentioned their individual cause of death. They also do not appear to have any social media accounts, or families posting about their deaths on social media.

Some netizens have claimed that Captains Wee Leong and Colin Tan died suddenly from cardiac arrest, while Captains Fernando Cid and Sebastian Tan died from cancer. It is unknown if any of those causes of death are accurate.

Until and unless Singapore Airlines, or the families of the five pilots, publicly announce their individual cause of death, anyone who tells you that they died of this or that cause is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Is Australia Opportunistically Vaccinating People Under Sedation?!

Fact #2 : No Evidence SIA Required Additional Vaccine Doses

In January 2021, Singapore Airlines (SIA) announced that it hopes to become the world’s first airline to vaccinated all of its crew members against COVID-19. SIA set a deadline of September 1, and managed to vaccinate 99% of its active pilots, cabin crew and frontline ground crew by 19 August 2021.

However, there is no evidence that Singapore Airlines demanded that its pilots and cabin crew get additional doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. As of January 2024,  the Singapore Ministry of Health only recommends that senior citizens 60 years and older, medically vulnerable people, and residents of aged care facilities receive an updated COVID-19 vaccine dose. Even then, that was a “recommendation”, not a requirement.

It is unlikely for Singapore Airlines to mandate additional COVID-19 vaccine doses, when the Singapore Ministry of Health did not recommend it for healthy young or middle-aged adults.

Until and unless Singapore Airlines, or the families of the four pilots, confirm it, anyone who tells you that the five SIA pilots received additional COVID-19 vaccine doses is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Singapore Airlines Had About 3,000 Pilots In 2022

In May 2022 (last year), SIA Chief Executive Goh Choon Phong announced that Singapore Airlines was looking to recruit 2,000 cabin crew as air travel was picking up.

While he declined to say how many pilots SIA employed in 2022, he said that the number of pilots at SIA Group is still similar to pre-COVID-19 numbers, with just “a very small number” who have left. Pre-pandemic, Singapore Airlines had about 3,200 pilots.

While it may shocking to hear that five SIA pilots died in 2023, it is not really shocking when you factor in the death rate in Singapore, which is 5.8 per 1,000 (2021).

Assuming Singapore Airlines only has 3,000 pilots, it should expect 17 of its pilots to die on a given year, or about 1.5 pilots a month. Five pilots dying in 2023 is therefore exceptionally low.

Fact #4 : Pilots Are At Greater Health Risk

Anti-vaccine activists are holding up pilots as healthier and less likely to die than the general population. But that’s not quite true.

Past studies (example | example) and a recent April 2023 narrative review have shown that airline pilots not only die at a younger age than the general population, they are also at greater risk of suffering from cancers like malignant melanoma, cardiovascular diseases, and cataracts.

Why woman on treadmill did not die suddenly from vaccine!

A video of a woman collapsing after running on a treadmill has gone viral.

Take a look at the viral video, and find out why she did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

 

Claim : Woman On Treadmill Died Suddenly From Vaccine!

People are sharing a video of a woman collapsing after running on a treadmill, claiming or suggesting that she just died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine!

DiedSuddenly : Welcome to the new normal.

Recommended : Did Iceland Ban COVID Vaccines After Sudden Deaths?!

 

Truth : Woman On Treadmill Did Not Die Suddenly From Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded In China

Let me start by pointing out that the video was recorded on 9 May 2023, in Guangzhou, China. It is important to note that China exclusively uses its own COVID-19 vaccines, instead of Western vaccines.

These Chinese COVID-19 vaccines are based on older technologies – the most common are the Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines, which use old inactivated virus vaccine technology that some anti-vaccine proponents claim are “much safer” than mRNA vaccines used in Western countries.

The truth is – all approved COVID-19 vaccines have successfully completed their clinical trials, proving that they are both safe and effective. They also continue to be monitored for safety and efficacy.

Fact #2 : The Woman Did Not Die

I should also point out that that the unnamed woman did not die. The woman actually regain her composure within two minutes of resting on the floor. So claims that she “died suddenly” are false.

Fact #3 : The Woman Had Low Blood Sugar

In that incident, a gym fitness coach who was passing by noticed that the woman was unsteady on the treadmill. He quickly stepped in to support and guide her off the treadmill to sit down on the floor. The video cuts off at that point.

It was revealed later that the woman was exercising on an empty stomach, leading to a drop in her blood sugar level. She recovered her composure within two minutes of resting.

The fitness coach, who was identified as Mr. Liu, advised people to maintain a balanced diet, and engage in appropriate exercise for safer and more effective workouts.

The incident was even covered by USA Today (source) on 25 May 2023.

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

While China has a high COVID-19 vaccination rate of just over 87%, it was not mandatory. That’s why a significant percentage of the population – just under 13% remain unvaccinated.

It is unknown if the woman on the treadmill was vaccinated against COVID-19. People who claim that the woman in the video was vaccinated against COVID-19 certainly offered no evidence.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Days

Even if the woman on the treadmill was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean she suffered any vaccine side effect. After all, 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 many 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.

Fact #6 : People Have Collapsed Long Before COVID-19 Vaccines!

While anti-vaccine activists often claim that such collapses have never, or rarely, happened, before the COVID-19 vaccines were introduced, that’s really not true.

People have been collapsing for all sorts of reasons – hypotension, hypoglycaemia, vasovagal syncope, prolonged standing, dehydration, seizures, etc.

In fact, the infamous Died Suddenly movie actually showcased people who collapsed even though they were not vaccinated against COVID-19!

  • Florida Gators star, Keynote Johnson, who collapsed during a basketball game
  • Austrian journalist, Rosa Lyon, who collapsed on TV three months before COVID-19 was discovered!

Fact #7 : Many Deaths + Collapses Had Nothing To Do With Vaccines!

In addition, many people whose collapses and deaths were blamed on the COVID-19 vaccine were actually unvaccinated.

  • Footballer Christian Eriksen was unvaccinated when he collapsed during a game
  • Ohio Republican rep Kris Jordan died suddenly even though he was unvaccinated, and anti-vaccine.
  • Celebrity Aaron Carter was unvaccinated when he suddenly died in his bathtub.
  • Actress Kirstie Alley whose death was blamed on “turbo cancer” was unvaccinated.
  • MMA fighter Stephan Bonnar whose sudden death was blamed on vaccines, was unvaccinated and died from a drug overdose.
  • Canadian musician Shane Macaulay is unvaccinated and anti-vaccine, but had his viral seizure blamed on COVID-19 vaccines!

There are other examples, but you get the drift – it’s best not to blame the COVID-19 vaccine for every single collapse, injury, or death.

The truth is – tens of billions of COVID-19 vaccine doses have already been administered worldwide, and they have proven to be safe and effective for the vast majority of people who took them.
