Truth : Cristiano Ronaldo Did Not Die Suddenly In Tragic Car Accident!

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

Fact #1 : Cristiano Ronaldo Is Still Alive + Well!

Cristiano Ronaldo (born Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro on 5 February 1985) is still very much alive and well, as of Monday, 5 February 2024!

Of course, you will want “proof of life”, don’t you? Ronaldo posted a photo of himself on Wednesday, 31 January 2024, on Instagram, showing his amazing physique.

That post came many days to weeks after those social media posts, YouTube and Facebook videos claimed that he died suddenly in a tragic car accident!

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These social media posts, as well as YouTube and Facebook videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported on Cristiano Ronald’s death!

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the world’s best footballers and a mega celebrity. His death would have been covered extensively by the media across the globe!

Yet, no legitimate media outlet has reported that Cristiano Ronaldo died recently from any cause. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / Facebook / TikTok videos?

Fact #3 : Viral Car Accident Photo Was From 2009

The viral photo of a badly damaged car is genuine, and shows a car in which Cristiano Ronaldo drove and crashed. However, that happened many years ago, when the Portuguese footballer was just 23 years old!

At 10:20 am on 8 January 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo crashed his Ferrari sports car into a roadside barrier in a tunnel on the A538 Wilmslow Road near the Manchester airport, on the way to train with the Manchester United team.

The car was badly damaged, with one of the front wheels sheared off and thrown over a hundred metres away. However, Cristiano Ronaldo was not injured, and got out of his car by himself, and later went on to train that morning.

Fact #4 : They Used Photos From Other Funerals!

Because Cristiano Ronaldo never died in a car crash or hospital, these fake news creator have to resort to using photos from other funerals.

In this example, the fake news creator merely added an inset photo of Cristiano Ronaldo with an arrow, a crying emoji and a LIVE chyron, to a photo of the funeral procession of IRA veteran Bobby Storey, which occurred on 30 June 2020.

If you take a closer look, you will see a bagpiper and Argos – a retailer operating in the United Kingdom and Ireland. You may also notice that everyone’s white! That’s because the photo was taken in Belfast, not Portugal!

Cristiano Ronaldo is Portuguese. Why on Earth would his funeral be held in Ireland?! And why would his family want a bagpiper at his funeral?!

Fact #5 : Cristiano Ronaldo Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Cristiano Ronaldo death hoax is, ironically, just another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:

News of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the February 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the 39-year-old footballer is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Cristiano Ronaldo 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 Cristiano Ronaldo’s unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other reps of celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, 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.

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 Andy Delort Collapse From Vaccine Death Spiral?!

Did French-Algerian footballer Andy Delort collapse from the vaccine death spiral during a soccer match in Qatar?!

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

 

Claim : Andy Delort Collapsed From Vaccine Death Spiral!

Right after news broke that Andy Delort collapsed suddenly during a soccer match in Qatar, some people immediately suggested that the French-Algerian professional footballer collapsed from the COVID-19 vaccine death spiral!

William Makis MD : Rotational Seizures in COVID-19 Vaccinated – 18 VIDEOS of the “Vaccine DEATH SPIRAL”

Jan.6, 2024 – Scary scene in Qatar as Umm Salal’s Andy Delort collapsed to the ground in convulsions 10 minutes after he scored a goal – French player was treated on the pitch and watched the second half of the Qatar Cup final on the bench

These have been called “rotational seizures”, and the proper medical term is “gyratory seizures”. They used to be very rare.

Gyratory seizures (GSs) have been rarely described in generalized as well as in focal epilepsies. They were defined as a rotation around the body axis during a seizure for at least 180 degrees

The mechanisms of generation are unknown

These “gyratory seizures” or “vaccine death spiral” are now much more common after the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.

Recommended : Died Suddenly Movie : More Vaccine Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Andy Delort Did Not Collapse From Vaccine Death Spiral!

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 : Vaccine Death Spiral Does Not Exist

Let me start by pointing out that “vaccine death spiral” does not exist.

Like “Turbo Cancer“, “Turbo AIDS“, or even “Vaccine AIDS“, the term “vaccine death spiral” was simply made up by anti-vaccine activists to scare you.

In fact, many cases of “vaccine death spiral” turned out to be just normal cases of seizures that did not result in death.

Fact #2 : Andy Delort Had An Epileptic Seizure

Andy Delort (أندي ديلور, born on 9 October 1991) is a French-Algerian professional footballer who is a striker for the Qatar Stars League club Umm Salal, and the Algeria national team.

On the evening of Saturday, 6 January 2024, Umm Salal was playing against Al-Arabi in Qatar, when Andy Delort scored the opening goal. Then he started spinning in a circle at the 16th minute before collapsing onto the pitch, and convulsing in an epileptic fit.

He was quickly attended to by a medical team, but recovered within a few minutes. He walked off the field, and  the game continued. Andy Delort did not need to be hospitalised, and he watched the rest of the game from the substitutes’ bench.

Andy Delort later issued a message to his fans:

Hello to the whole RMC team! It’s Andy Delort to tell you that everything is going very well. I had a little bit of fatigue. Wee did the tests, it’s going very well. Don’t forget that we’re going to start against at Rothern’s with shows where we’re going to talk about everything and nothing, but especially football. See you soon friends, big kisses and long live Ligue 1!

To be clear – Andy Delort did not die after collapsing. Neither was he hospitalised. He only suffered an epileptic seizure, and recovered within minutes on his own.

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

Fact #3 : Gyratory Seizures Existed Long Before Vaccines

I should point out that gyratory seizures, defined as a rotation around the body axis during a seizure for at least 180 degrees, have been documented long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

As William Makis himself pointed out, it was described in the 2005 Dobesberger et. al paper called Gyratory seizures revisited.

That paper revealed that 12 out of 277 patients suffered gyratory seizures, from 1998 to 2004 – that’s 15 to 21 years before the pandemic! All those patients had existing, intractable (difficult or impossible to control) epilepsies, and had been referred for “presurgical evaluation”.

Fact #4 : Seizures Are Not Side Effect Of COVID-19 Vaccines

To be clear – seizures, gyratory or not, are not a side effect of COVID-19 vaccines. There is no plausible or known pathogenesis for any vaccine to cause gyratory seizures.

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

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

Fact #5 : Unknown If Andy Delort Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite suggestions that Andy Delort was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Andy Delort was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in France, Algeria, or even Qatar.

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

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

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Andy Delort 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.

Truth : Lionel Messi Did Not Die In High Speed Car Crash!

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

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These social media posts, as well as YouTube and TikTok videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported on Lionel Messi’s death!

Lionel Messi is one of the world’s best footballer and a mega celebrity. His death would have been covered extensively by the media across the globe! And his fans would have mourned his death on social media.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet has reported that Lionel Messi died recently from any cause, never mind a tragic car accident. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / TikTok videos?

Fact #2 : Lionel Messi Is Still Alive + Well!

Lionel Messi (born Lionel Andrés Messi on 24 June 1987) is still very much alive and well, as of Tuesday, 9 January 2024.

Of course, you want proof of life, right? What you should be asking is the proof of death when you see social media claims that some celebrity or athlete has died. But I digress…

Well, Lionel Messi himself posted a photo with his family on New Year’s Day – 1 January 2024. As you can see, not only is he very much still alive, his family looks great!

Fact #3 : This Car Accident Photo Was From 2009

To convince you that Lionel Messi died (even though he’s still alive), the fake news creators had to make use of unrelated car crashes.

In this example, the video claimed that Lionel Messi, Xavi, and Cristiano Ronaldo, died in this car accident.

The truth is – that is a photo of a Ferrari 599 that crashed in October 2009, on the Great Ocean Road in southern Victoria, Australia. The driver was a 64 year-old man called Carlo Vaccari.

Mr. Vaccari lost control while driving his Ferrari 599 at 80 km/h and ploughed into two motorcyclists travelling in the opposite direction. He was convicted of careless driving, but only fined $3000.

Fact #4 : This Car Accident Photo Was Posted In 2014

It is unknown when this car accident happened, but this undated car accident photo was posted by WreckedExotics.com on August 13, 2014.

Apparently, the driver lost control of his Ferrari 458 Italia while trying to overtake another car, and crashed into a trash bin. The driver left the scene of the accident, possibly under the influence of drugs / alcohol.

Even though this incident happened in Madrid, Spain, this photo is old and has nothing to do with Lionel Messi.

Recommended : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #5 : This Car Accident Occurred In 2012

This photo does not show Lionel Messi’s fatal car crash. This accident actually occurred at around 9 PM on 1 September 2012, at the E42 highway near Francorchamps in Belgium.

The driver was a 63 year-old man from Saint-Ghislain, and was obviously not Lionel Messi.

Fact #6 : Lionel Messi Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Lionel Messi death hoax is, ironically, also fuelled by MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in its fake fact check article:

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 36-year-old footballer is alive and well.

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

Are soccer players keeling over while playing on the field from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

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

The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) activist group, which is chaired by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., just posted an article suggesting that soccer players are keeling over while playing on the field from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Here is an excerpt from the long, rambling article. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Keeling Over on the Soccer Field: Is It ‘Long COVID’ — or the Vaccines?

There is an urgent need for studies comparing the health of COVID-19-vaccinated and unvaccinated people. This research is not being done. The data that would identify people who die or were hospitalized is available to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but is not being released.

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

 

No Evidence Soccer Players Are Keeling Over From COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

Fact #1 : Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is Pretty Common

The first reports of soccer players keeling over on the field did not start only “in the summer of 2021”. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a medical emergency that has been documented for as long as medical records exist.

And SCA is actually pretty common. The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

In addition, the COVID-19 vaccines were first prioritised towards vulnerable people, and not athletes. So some athletes who collapsed on the field in the summer of 2021, like Christian Eriksen, were actually unvaccinated!

The incidence of SCA also did not increase after the COVID-19 vaccines were introduced, which squashes the claim that vaccines are causing a spike in sudden cardiac arrest deaths.

As this Peterson-KFF chart shows, the incidence of heart disease as well as other causes of death in the United States remained relatively stable during the pandemic. Only deaths from COVID-19 varied significantly during that time.

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Causes Far More Myocarditis Than Vaccines!

It is true that younger males are more likely than other segments of the population to develop myocarditis after taking COVID-19 vaccines based on mRNA technology. However, what you may not know is that – the risk of developing myocarditis is much, much higher with COVID-19 infections!

The large SAFECOVAC study showed that the risk of developing vaccine myocarditis is less than 1 in a million doses. On the other hand, the study data showed that the risk of developing myocarditis after a COVID-19 infection is hundreds of times higher than getting 3 doses of any COVID-19 vaccine!

If you are worried about myocarditis, you should definitely want to AVOID getting infected with COVID-19.

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

3x Pfizer 2.7 +1.8x +1.3x Baseline
3x AstraZeneca 2.1 +1.4x Baseline -0.2x
3x Sinovac 1.5 Baseline -0.3x -0.4x

Fact #3 : COVID-19 Vaccines Continue To Be Monitored

COVID-19 vaccines received their Emergency Use Authorisations (EUA) in December 2020 through early 2021, after passing large Phase 3 clinical trials. Even then, they continue to be monitored by their manufacturers, and health authorities across the world.

Even after the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines received their full FDA approval on 23 August 2021, and 31 January 2022 respectively, they continue to be monitored for safety and efficacy.

After three years of safety monitoring and billions of doses administered, COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to be largely safe and effective. There is zero evidence that the COVID-19 vaccines are nefariously targeting soccer players, and “assassinating” them while they play on the field.

Fact #4 : Viruses Multiply, Vaccines Won’t

The claim that COVID-19 vaccines produce more spike proteins than an actual COVID-19 virus infection is illogical. After all, viruses multiply, while the vaccines won’t.

Even if we simply look at the mRNA vaccines alone, they contain a limited number of mRNA instructions that encode for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The mRNA instructions enter a limited number of cells, which then produce and display those spike proteins on their surfaces, to trigger our immune system.

If you are infected by the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus though, it quickly hijacks your cells to produce millions of copies – each covered with spike proteins, which then infect even more cells, in an ever-expanding chain reaction.

Until your immune system learns to stop and defeat the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it will keep producing millions and millions of viruses that will circulate through your body, delivering those nasty spike proteins everywhere.

So if you are really worried about the spike protein, you should really get vaccinated against COVID-19!

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

Fact #5 : No Evidence SARS-CoV-2 Is A Bioweapon

There is no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was developed as a bioweapon. Neither is there any evidence that the spike protein was man-made, or “engineered to be toxic”.

For one thing – SARS-CoV-2 isn’t virulent enough to serve as a bioweapon. There are far more potent bioweapons that have already been tested in the past that make this coronavirus look puny.

COVID-19 also disproportionately targets the elderly and the vulnerable, instead of the “fighting age” population. A good bioweapon would do the opposite.

The Chinese also did not have any antidote at hand to deal with COVID-19, when it first broke out in Wuhan.

Did Tom Lockyer Collapse From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Did Tom Lockyer collapse during a Premiere League match from cardiac arrest caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Tom Lockyer Collapsed From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

Right after news broke that Tom Lockyer collapsed suddenly during a Premiere League match, some people immediately suggested that the Welsh professional footballer suffered a cardiac arrest caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Truth : Tom Lockyer Did Not Collapse From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

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 : Tom Lockyer Suffered A Cardiac Arrest

Tom Lockyer (born Thomas Alun Lockyer on 3 December 1994) is a Welsh professional footballer who plays for Luton Town – a Premiere League soccer club.

On 16 December 2023, Luton Town was playing against Bournemouth, when Tom Lockyer suddenly collapsed on the pitch during the second half, after suffering a cardiac arrest.

He was responsive, but was stretchered off the field, and taken to a hospital. Luton Town later announced that Lockyer was “stable and currently undergoing further tests“.

Fact #2 : Tom Lockyer Was Discharged With An ICD

On Thursday, 21 December 2023, Luton Town announced that Tom Lockyer was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday, after getting an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) fitted.

We are thankful to report that our captain Tom Lockyer has now begun a period of rehabilitation from the comfort of his own home after he was discharged from hospital on Wednesday.

This encouraging news follows a successful procedure that took place on Tuesday whereby Tom had an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator) device fitted to prevent a repeat of Saturday’s incident.

The clinical advice Tom and the Club has taken since the Championship play-off final has been conducted by the most renowned cardiologists, who have been involved at every step, along with a team of supporting multi-disciplinary consultants.

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

Fact #3 : Tom Lockyer Collapsed In May For Different Reason

This isn’t the first time Tom Lockyer collapsed while playing on the pitch. On 27 May 2023, he collapsed just 12 minutes into a game against Coventry City.

He was treated by the medical team, and was conscious when he was taken off the field, and taken to a hospital for further tests. Eventually, he was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, and underwent ablative surgery.

His most recent collapse in December 2023 though has nothing to do with his prior heart condition. This was confirmed by his club, Luton Town:

We can now confirm that the tests taken this week had revealed that the issue Tom experienced on Saturday was different to the atrial fibrillation he suffered in May.

Needless to say – no COVID-19 vaccine is known to cause atrial fibrillation, or any other cardiac electrical conditions.

Fact #4 : Athletes Are At Higher Risk Of Cardiac Arrest

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

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

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

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

Fact #5 : Unknown If Tom Lockyer Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite suggestions that Tom Lockyer was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Tom Lockyer 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 he (or his family) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Tom Lockyer was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Tom Lockyer 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 Raphael Dwamena Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did football star Raphael Dwamena collapse and die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?!

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

 

Claim : Raphael Dwamena Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Raphael Dwamena died suddenly at just 28 years of age, some people immediately suggested that the former LaLiga star and international striker was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

William Makis MD : SUMMER OF DIED SUDDENLY – SOCCER Players are still collapsing & dying 3 years after COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

World just watched 28 year old Ghana soccer player Raphael Dwamena collapse & die during a game in Albania.

Recommended : FDA Refused To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

 

No Evidence Raphael Dwamena Died Suddenly 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-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Raphael Dwamena Apparently Suffered Cardiac Arrest

Raphael Dwamena (born on 12 September 1995) was a Ghanaian professional footballer who won nine caps for Ghana between 2017 and 2018, and played internationally as a striker.

On Saturday, 11 November 2023, Raphael Dwamena was playing in an Albanian Superliga match between FK Egnatia and Partizani, when he suddenly collapsed in the 23rd minute of the first half.

Dwamena was stretchered off the field, but despite attempts to resuscitate him, was pronounced dead on the way to the Kavajë Hospital. He was only 28 years old when he died.

Although an official cause of death was not announced, the media has so far reported that he suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.

Fact #2 : Raphael Dwamena Had History Of Heart Problem

In 2017, Raphael Dwamena was on the verge of signing with Brighton & Hove Albion FC, when he was diagnosed with a ventricular arrhythmia. That led the club to cancel his transfer from FC Zurich.

In 2019, Real Zaragoza terminated his contract while he was on loan from Levante, due to his health problems.

In 2020, Vejle Boldklub also terminated its loan of Raphael Dwamena due to his heart problems. That year, he was finally fitted with an implantable cardiovascular-defibrillator (ICD), which would later save his life at least once. Even though he finally had an ICD implanted, he was also advised to quit professional football.

In 2021, Raphael Dwamena lost his contract with Austrian club FC Blau-Weiss Linz, again due to his heart problems. At that time, he collapsed on the field during a game. Fortunately, his ICD shocked him back to life, but his career in Austria was over.

Fact #3 : Raphael Dwamena Apparently Removed His ICD

On 14 November 2023, Dr. Antonio Asso told the Spanish outlet, Sport, that Dwamena had his defibrillator removed a year before he collapsed and died suddenly on the field.

He died as a result of a respectable personal decision. But if the defibrillator had not been explanted, Raphael would still be alive.

Dr. Asso was Dwamena’s cardiologist, who convinced him to implant the defibrillator in the first place. He also advised him to quit professional football.

We managed to convince him of the imperative need to implant a defibrillator to at least guarantee his life, at the same time that we advised against practicing professional sports.

A couple of years ago they told me that the defibrillator had saved his life when he had a malignant arrhythmia that had been correctly treated automatically by the device. We had subsequently lost contact. 

From that moment on, I was aware that one day the tragedy that occurred on Saturday on a soccer field in Albania would happen.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Raphael Dwamena Was Vaccinated

Despite claims that Raphael Dwamena was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Raphael Dwamena was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom. European football clubs never had a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

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

Recommended : 1 In 4 Americans Know Someone Who Died From Vaccine?!

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

Even if Raphael Dwamena 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.

Duangphet Phromthep : Why He Died Suddenly In UK!

Duangphet Phromthep, the former captain of the football team that was rescued from a flooded Thai cave, died suddenly in the United Kingdom.

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

Updated @ 2023-11-04 : Added the official cause of death for Duangphet Phromthep

Right after news broke that Duangphet Phromthep died suddenly, people immediately claimed that the 17 year-old former captain of the Wild Boars football team that was rescued from a flooded Thai cave died from vaccine SADS!

Another Sudden cardiac arrest with unknown cause especially in the young— after Covid infection/Covid vaccine era — spooky

The Vaccine has killed another person in there sleep this time it was the Thai Captain who was 17

Now offical that taking the shitty mRNA jab is more dangerous than being trapped a mile underground in a flooded cave. #DuangpetchPromthep

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

 

Truth : Duangphet Phromthep Died From Suicide!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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 : Duangphet Phromthep Was Found Unconscious In His Dorm

Duangphet Phromthep was the 13 year-old captain of the Wild Boards (Moo Pa) football team that was rescued two weeks after a flash flood trapped them in a Thai cave on 23 June 2018.

Also known as Dom and Nong Dom, Duangphet Phromthep went to Chiang Mai to study sports, and received a scholarship to study at the Brooke House College Football Academy in Leicester, England, last year.

A teacher found Dom unconscious in his dorm on Sunday, 12 February 2023, and called the police. A Leicestershire police spokesperson confirmed this, stating:

Shortly before 1pm on Sunday, police were called to a boarding school in Leicester Road, Market Harborough by the East Midlands Ambulance Service.

The call concerned the welfare of a pupil. The pupil – a 17-year-old boy – was taken to hospital. He has since died.

Duangphet Phromthep was then sent to the Kettering General Hospital. However, he was unresponsive and died on Tuesday, 14 February, 2023. Ian Smith, the principal at Brooke House college released this statement:

This event has left our college community deeply saddened and shaken. We unite in grief with all of Dom’s family, friends, former teammates and those involved in all parts of his life, as well as everyone affected in any way by this loss in Thailand and throughout the college’s global family.

The college is liaising with statutory authorities and the Royal Thai embassy in London, and dedicating all resources to assist our student body, as they as young people process Dom’s passing. Beyond that, we are unable to comment further at this time and would ask for privacy and compassion as we continue to support the students in our care at this time, drawing on the kindness and assistance of the Market Harborough community.

Fact #2 : Duangphet Phromthep Allegedly Had A Head Injury

Claims that Duangphet Phromthep died from a cardiac arrest, or in his sleep from SADS, appear to be completely unfounded.

According to Supatpong Methigo – a Buddhist monk who taught him earlier, Duangphet’s grandmother told him he had died, after hitting his head in an accident.

Phra Khu Prayut Jetiyanukarn, abbot of Wat Phra That Doi Wao in Chiang Rai, said Duangphet’sthat  mother phoned him around 6 AM and told him that her son had died. The abbot said according to initial reports, there was an accident, a fall, and Duangphet was injured. He was admitted to the hospital, and put on a ventilator, but later died.

Other relatives told Thai reporters that they were informed that Duangphet had been injured in an accident that led to his death, and that details would be given by his football club in England.

Fact #3 : Duangphet Phromthep’s Death Was Not Suspicious

The cause of death for Duangphet Phromthep was initially not officially confirmed, but the Leicestershire police said that his death was not suspicious, and a file would be prepared for the coroner.

The boy’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

Fact #4 : Duangphet Phromthep Died From Suicide

On 4 October 2023, an inquest into Duangphet’s death was held at the Leicester Coroner’s Court. Professor Catherine Mason, the senior coroner for Leicester city and South Leicestershire, recorded a conclusion of suicide.

She said that Duangphet “was not known to mental health services, and it is not known why he took the actions that he did“, so “it could not have been foreseen or prevented“. She also stated that the “police investigation has found no evidence of third-party involvement or suspicious circumstances“.

The boy’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

It may seem obvious now, but I have to point out that Duangphet Phromthep most definitely did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect, as claimed or suggested by many anti-vaccine proponents.

Recommended : Hunter Brown : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine SADS!

Fact #5 : UK Never Had A Vaccine Mandate For Travellers

The United Kingdom never instituted a vaccine mandate for travellers. Travellers were required to test before flying to the UK, and quarantine on arrival.

The testing requirement was only lifted on 11 February 2022 for fully-vaccinated travellers. Even so, travellers who were not fully-vaccinated could still continue to travel to the UK. They just had to undergo a pre-departure COVID-19 test, and a PCR test on the day of arrival, or the next day.

Fact #6 : Unknown If Duangphet Phromthep Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is unknown if Duangphet Phromthep was ever vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Thailand, or the United Kingdom.

Unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Duangphet Phromthep was fully-vaccinated is likely lying to you. For certain – he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #7 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine are often proven false. Here are some other examples:

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…

Did Cedric Roussel Die Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did former Premier League footballer Cedric Roussel die suddenly from a heart attack caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

RIP CEDRIC!! ANOTHER VACCINE DEATH VICTIM!! 💉 #wwfc

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

 

No Evidence Cedric Roussel Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : Cedric Roussel Died From Heart Attack / Cardiac Arrest

Cedric Roussel (born 6 January 1978) was a Belgian professional footballer who played in the Premier League with Coventry City in 1999, and the Belgium national team in 2003. He retired in February 2015 at the age of 37, and became a real estate agent.

On 24 June 2023, Cedric Roussel was sitting on a terrace at a marketplace in Mons, Belgium, when he suddenly collapsed. Despite the best efforts of paramedics who rushed to the scene, they were unable to revive him.

Initial reports say that Cedric Roussel died from a sudden cardiac arrest, but later reports say that he died from a heart attack.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Cedric Roussel Had Myocarditis

There is no evidence that Cedric Roussel was suffering from myocarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

In fact, if he suffered from myocarditis, Cedric Roussel would not be casually sitting on a terrace enjoying a day out in Mons. He would have been experiencing chest pain and/or shortness of breath.

Fact #3 : Vaccine-Induced Myocarditis Affects Mainly Young Adults

Vaccine-induced myocarditis is not only rare, it occurs mainly in young adults and adolescent males 12 to 39 years in age. Cedric Roussel was 45 years old when he died.

To help you understand that, I created this table to show you the risk of vaccine-induced myocarditis for different age groups.

Note : Baseline refers to the typical number of myocarditis cases expected in the unvaccinated population.

Age Group Male Rate
(per million doses)
Baseline
(per million doses)
12-17 32.4 2.0
18-24 30.7 1.8
25-29 12.2 1.9
30-39 6.9 1.9
40-49 3.5 1.9
50-64 1.9 1.9

Read more : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Fact #4 : Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is Common

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many countries enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Fact #5 : Unknown If Cedric Roussel Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is unknown if Cedric Roussel was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.

Some anti-vaccination activists are sharing a photo alleging to show Cedric Roussel getting a COVID-19 vaccine. That’s actually a photo of a different Cedric Roussel!

This Cedric Roussel who posted a photo of himself getting the COVID-19 vaccine is actually a 5o year-old French politician and former Member of Parliament who served in its Committee on Cultural Affairs and Education.

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Cedric Roussel the footballer died from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did FDA Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots?!

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Cedric Roussel was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have been fully-vaccinated more than two years before his death!

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

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

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

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Did Al-Nassr President Call Cristiano Ronaldo A Scam?!

Did former Al-Nassr president Musalli Al-Muammar say that the club was cheated by Cristiano Ronaldo, and called him a scam?!

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

 

Claim : Al-Nassr Got Cheated + Cristiano Ronaldo Is A Scam!

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

 

Truth : Al-Nassr President Did Not Call Cristiano Ronaldo A Scam!

This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS created by Music Mundial and other websites to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Fake Claim Originated With El Desmarque

The fake news appear to have originated with Spanish sports publication El Desmarque, and was quickly picked up by other websites.

It is odd why they posted it, because Al-Muammar’s statement reads like satire, particularly the part where he compared signing up Cristiano Ronaldo with getting two kebabs instead of the three he ordered.

Fact #2 : ArabiaNews50 Does Not Exist

ArabiaNews50 / ArabicNews50 / Arabia News 50 / Arabic News 50 – the news outlet that allegedly interviewed Al-Muammar does not exist!

Anyone who does a quick search online would quickly realise that, so it is very odd so many websites continue to propagate this claim. Wink wink, nod nod.

Fact #3 : Al-Nassr Called The Claim False

Al-Nassr’s press advisor Walid Al-Muhaidib vehemently denied that Al-Muammar made those comments, calling them “false”. He also pointed out that there was no such media outlet called Arabic News 50 / Arabia News 50.

The talk in the Spanish press that we felt cheated on the Ronaldo deal, based on the Arabia News 50 website, is false and incorrect. The press came up with his joke and thought it was true.

Did Ben Idir Mehenni Die Suddenly From Vaccine?!

Did Algerian footballer Ben Idir Mehenni die suddenly on the field from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

No Evidence Algerian Footballer Ben Idir Mehenni Died From Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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 : Ben Dir Mehenni Suddenly Collapsed + Died

On Tuesday, 24 January 2023, Union sportive de Oued Amizour (Sports Union of Oued Amizour) played against M.C. Rouiba in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) at the Stade de Reghaia (Reghaia Stadium).

A few minutes before the game ended, Ben Idir Mehenni who played for Oued Amizour collapsed on the field, and was rushed to the Reghaia hospital. Unfortunately, he could not be saved, and passed away.

Ben Idir Mehenni’s death was first announced by the Béjaia Radio, and confirmed by the Fédération Algérienne de Football in a Facebook post on Wednesday, 25 January 2023.

Le joueur a été victime d’un malaise quelques minutes à la fin de la rencontre et a été évacué en urgence à l’hôpital de Reghaia où il avait rendu l’âme quelques minutes après.

The player fell ill a few minutes after the match and was rushed to Reghaia hospital where he passed away a few minutes later.

Fact #2 : Ben Idir Mehenni’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

While many people claimed that Ben Idir Mehenni died from a heart attack, there has been no official source for that claim.

Neither Béjaia Radio nor the Fédération Algérienne de Football said that Ben Idir Mehenni died from a heart attack.

While Ben Idir Mehenni may well indeed have died from a heart attack, he could also have died from a sudden cardiac arrest – another condition which commonly causes athletes to suddenly collapse and die.

In any case, until and unless there is official word from the hospital on his cause of death, or an autopsy report, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that Ben Idir Mehenni died from heart attack, the vaccine, or some other cause.

Fact #3 : Ben Idir Mehenni Was Likely Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is unknown if Ben Idir Mehenni was ever vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

It is actually pretty likely that Ben Idir Mehenni was not vaccinated, as Algeria has a very low COVID-19 vaccination rate. Less than 15% of its population is fully-vaccinated, and less than 18% ever receive a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Unless he had earlier travelled overseas to play football, it is more than likely that Ben Idir Mehenni was never vaccinated against COVID-19.

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

Fact #4 : No mRNA Vaccine Approved For Use In Algeria

While many people blame his death on mRNA vaccines, specifically the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, no mRNA vaccine has ever been approved for use in Algeria!

Only four COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for use in Algeria so far:

  • Oxford-AstraZeneca Vaxzevria : viral vector vaccine
  • Sinovac CoronaVac : inactivated virus vaccine
  • Sinopharm Covilo : inactivated virus vaccine
  • Gamaleya Sputnik V : viral vector vaccine

As you can see – it is really not possible for anyone in Algeria to die from an mRNA vaccine, because no mRNA vaccine is available in Algeria!

Fact #5 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

Official : Football Legend Pele Died After Cancer Battle!

It is official – football legend, Pele, died after battling colon cancer in a Sao Paolo hospital.

 

Official : Football Legend Pele Died After Cancer Battle

For weeks now, the Internet has been rife with rumours that football legend, Pele, died after he was admitted to a Sao Paolo hospital in November.

Sadly, his agent, Joe Fraga, just confirmed that 82 year-old Pele died on Thursday, December 29, 2022. His death was also announced on his official Twitter and Facebook accounts:

A inspiração e o amor marcaram a jornada de Rei Pelé, que faleceu no dia de hoje.

Amor, amor e amor, para sempre.
.
Inspiration and love marked the journey of King Pelé, who peacefully passed away today.

Love, love and love, forever.

His daughter, Kely Nascimento, later posted this on Instagram:

Tudo que nos somos é graças a você. Te amamos infinitamente. Descance em paz. 💔 💔 💔

Everything we are is thanks to you. We love you infinitely. Rest in peace 💔 💔 💔

Born Edson Arantes do Nascimento on October 23, 1940, Pele grew up shining shoes, and was introduced to the Santos’ youth squads by a local professional player.

Pele ended up playing 114 matches for Brazil, scoring a record 95 goals, and winning a record three World Cups. That earned him the moniker, “The King of the Beautiful Game“, and he was considered one of the greatest footballers of all time.

 

Pele Died After Battling Colon Cancer For Over A Year

The Brazilian football legend had a tumour removed from the right side of his colon in September 2021. Although his eldest daughter, Kely, said that he was “doing well”, he was reportedly admitted to intensive care a few days later. However, he was released on 30 September 2021 to begin chemotherapy.

On 29 November 2022, he was admitted to the Hospital Israelita A. Einstein (Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital) in São Paulo to reassess his chemotherapy and to treat a respiratory infection.

He was confirmed to have “decompensated heart failure”, which caused general swelling (edema), and was reportedly struggling to eat and had mental confusion, which led doctors to look into whether he was suffering from hepatic encephalopathy.

Last week, the hospital issued a statement saying that his cancer had advanced, and Pele was also experiencing renal and cardiac dysfunctions.

Admitted since November 29 for a reassessment of chemotherapy therapy for colon tumor and treatment of a respiratory infection, Edson Arantes do Nascimento presents progression of the oncological disease and requires greater care related to renal and cardiac dysfunctions.

The patient remains hospitalised in a common room, under the necessary care of the medical team.

His family spent Christmas Eve and Christmas with him at the Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital.

Insta family, our Christmas at home has been suspended. We decided with the doctors that, for various reasons, it would be better for us to stay here with all the care that this new family at Einstein gives us!!

On Boxing Day – the day Pele allegedly died, Kely Nascimento posted about making through “another night with him”.

We always have a lot to be thankful for, even spending Christmas in the hospital we are aware of the privilege it is to be in a hospital like @hosp_einstein.

To see our dad being treated by these professionals, super competent and extremely caring. Not a moment goes by that we forget this privilege. Even in sadness we can only be thankful.

Thank you for being together, thank you for all your affection, thank you that I can be here now with him. Merry Christmas.

Lots of health, lots of love, lots of joy, lots of laughter and lots of passion, today and always, for all of you. Another night with him ❤️❤️❤️

Three days later, she posted an update, to share that it has been a rollercoaster ride for the Pele family. At that time, she did not state that Pele had died.

These moments are hard to explain. Sometimes there is a lot of sadness and despair, other times we laugh and talk of fun memories. And what we learn most from all this is that we have to look for each other, and hold tight. Only then it’s all worth it with all of us together.

Pele’s cause of death was listed as multiple organ failure as a complication of colon cancer.

Pele leaves behind his wife, Marcia Aoki whom he married in 2016, and seven known children, including Kely Nascimento and Edson “Edinho”.

Truth : Pele Did Not Die Right After Celebrating Christmas

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS shared on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pele Admitted To Hospital In November 2022

First, let me start by establishing some basic facts about Pele’s recent health issues.

The Brazilian football legend had a tumour removed from the right side of his colon in September 2021. Although his eldest daughter, Kely, said that he was “doing well”, he was reportedly admitted to intensive care a few days later. However, he was released on 30 September 2021 to begin chemotherapy.

On 29 November 2022, he was admitted to the Hospital Israelita A. Einstein (Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital) in São Paulo to reassess his chemotherapy and to treat a respiratory infection.

Last week, the hospital issued a statement saying that his cancer had advanced, and Pele was also experiencing renal and cardiac dysfunctions.

Admitted since November 29 for a reassessment of chemotherapy therapy for colon tumor and treatment of a respiratory infection, Edson Arantes do Nascimento presents progression of the oncological disease and requires greater care related to renal and cardiac dysfunctions.

The patient remains hospitalised in a common room, under the necessary care of the medical team.

Fact #2 : Pele Died On December 29, 2022

Pele died on Thursday, December 29, 2022 – three days after the purported article on his death was allegedly posted.

This was confirmed by his agent Joe Fraga, as well as his official Twitter and Facebook accounts.

A inspiração e o amor marcaram a jornada de Rei Pelé, que faleceu no dia de hoje.

Amor, amor e amor, para sempre.
.
Inspiration and love marked the journey of King Pelé, who peacefully passed away today.

Love, love and love, forever.

His daughter, Kely Nascimento, also posted on her Instagram account:

Everything we are is thanks to you. We love you infinitely. Rest in peace 💔 💔 💔

Fact #3 : Pele Spent Christmas With His Family At Hospital

His family spent Christmas Eve and Christmas with him at the Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital.

Insta family, our Christmas at home has been suspended. We decided with the doctors that, for various reasons, it would be better for us to stay here with all the care that this new family at Einstein gives us!!

On Boxing Day – the day Pele allegedly died, Kely Nascimento posted about making through “another night with him”.

We always have a lot to be thankful for, even spending Christmas in the hospital we are aware of the privilege it is to be in a hospital like @hosp_einstein.

To see our dad being treated by these professionals, super competent and extremely caring. Not a moment goes by that we forget this privilege. Even in sadness we can only be thankful.

Thank you for being together, thank you for all your affection, thank you that I can be here now with him. Merry Christmas.

Lots of health, lots of love, lots of joy, lots of laughter and lots of passion, today and always, for all of you. Another night with him ❤️❤️❤️

Three days later, she posted an update, to share that it has been a rollercoaster ride for the Pele family. At that time, she did not state that Pele had died.

These moments are hard to explain. Sometimes there is a lot of sadness and despair, other times we laugh and talk of fun memories. And what we learn most from all this is that we have to look for each other, and hold tight. Only then it’s all worth it with all of us together.

Fact #4 : Pele Was Not Suffering From COVID-19

While people initially speculated that Pele was suffering from COVID-19, his eldest daughter Kely Nascimento explained that he had the coronavirus earlier, but now had a lung infection.

About three weeks ago he got Covid. He is vaccinated, with all the vaccines, but because of the cancer medicine, the chemotherapy, which is fragile, he got a lung infection.

That’s why he went to the hospital, because of the lung infection. Is he serious? It’s serious, because he’s a certain age, he’s treating cancer.

Fact #5 : Pele Was Fully-Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is inevitable that anti-vaccination activists will blame Pele’s health problems on the COVID-19 vaccine.

I should first point out that, yes, Pele is fully-vaccinated against COVID-19. That was how he was able to beat back a COVID-19 infection earlier, despite being in poor health.

COVID-19 vaccines also cannot cause colon cancer, despite what antivaxxers may claim. Colon cancer takes years to develop.

Fact #6 : Jon Whitman Writes For Thaiger

The article on Pele’s death was purportedly written by Jon Whitman – a writer for the Thai website, Thaiger.

It is unknown if the screenshot was photo-edited, or if the Thaiger accidentally published a prepared obituary for Pele and quickly rescinded it. The article is not / no longer available on the Thaiger website.

Pele did indeed die in a São Paulo hospital, but only days later – on 29 December 2022.

Grant Wahl : His Wife Reveals True Cause Of Death!

We now know why Grant Wahl suddenly collapsed and died while covering World Cup 2022 in Qatar, after his wife revealed his true cause of death!

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

 

Claim : Grant Wahl Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Grant Wahl died suddenly while covering World Cup 2022 in Qatar, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the renown American sports writer died from COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

Here are some examples on social media:

Let’s be frank- The Covid 19 vaccine killed Grant Wahl. #diedsuddenly

Grant Wahl was a big/vocal proponent of COVID vaccines. It’s all over his timeline. Another 💉💉💉💉SADs? RIP Grant

Thank god @GrantWahl was vaccinated and boosted. I can’t imagine how bad it would’ve been if he had a heart attack and died while unvaccinated. 🤡🌎
#vaccine #vaccinated #vaccineinjuries

Grant Wahl : His Wife Reveals True Cause Of Death!

I wrote earlier about how Grant Wahl did not die from the so-called “vaccine sudden adult death syndrome”, which does not even exist but is a fixation of anti-vaccination activists.

This was confirmed by Dr. Celine Gounder, who is not only Grant Wahl’s wife, but is also an infectious disease expert who worked in the Biden administration’s COVID-19 Taskforce.

If the COVID-19 vaccines were dangerous in any way, Dr. Grounder would be aware, and would not have allowed her husband to be vaccinated.

While anti-vaccination activists are mocking both Wahl and Dr. Grounder, the very fact that he was fully-vaccinated shows that they walked the talk, not like some anti-vaccination activists who turn out to be fully-vaccinated.

On Wednesday, December 14, 2022, Grant Wahl’s wife, Dr. Celine Gounder, revealed his true cause of death.

The New York City Medical Examiner’s Office performed an autopsy on Grant Wahl, and determined that he died from “the rupture of a slowly growing, undetected ascending aortic aneurysm with hemoperricardium“.

As Dr. Celine Gounder noted, there was nothing “nefarious” about his death, and it had nothing to do with COVID-19 or the COVID-19 vaccines.

His death was unrelated to COVID. His death was unrelated to vaccination status. There was nothing nefarious about his death.

To be clear – Grant Wahl’s true cause of death was a ruptured aneurysm, compounded by blood compressing his heart.

Grant Wahl did not die from any vaccine side effect. The rupture of an aortic aneurysm is a medical emergency that cannot possibly be caused by the COVID-19 vaccines.

Read more : Did Grant Wahl Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

An ascending aortic aneurysm is a balloon-like bulge caused by a weakness in the wall of the heart’s main artery (aorta).

In many cases, an aortic aneurysm does not present with any symptoms, so people are often unaware they have one until it ruptures.

However, the chest pains that Grant Wahl experienced in the days leading to his collapse and sudden death could have been warning symptoms of an aortic aneurysm. His wife said as much:

The chest pressure he experienced shortly before his death may have represented the initial symptoms.

While anti-vaccination activists claim that aortic aneurysms are uncommon, they are the 13th leading cause of death in the United States.

CDC statistics attribute about 10,000 deaths in the year 2019 (before the pandemic started) to aortic aneurysms or dissections, with men accounting for 59%.

Once an aortic aneurysm ruptures, it causes life threatening blood loss. In Grant Wahl’s case, it was so severe he immediately collapsed and died very quickly.

Sadly, Grant Wahl will not be the last person whose sudden death was abused and misused to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Truth : Grant Wahl Did Not Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all 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 : Grant Wahl Had Acute Distress Before Collapsing

Grant Wahl (born December 8, 1974) was covering the quarterfinal match between Argentina and the Netherlands with other journalists on Friday, December 9, 2022, when he suddenly fell back in his seat during extra time.

Univision journalist, Rafael Cores, who was seated next to him, wrote that Grant was working on his laptop just before he suddenly collapsed.

I’m in shock. I was sitting next to him tonight. He was working on his story on his laptop, it was about 4 minutes before the end of the extra time. He was laughing at a joke we saw on Twitter only minutes earlier. I can’t believe it. My deepest condolences to @GrantWahl’s family

The journalists around him quickly removed chairs and called for medical assistance. A team of medics and a journalist with CPR training administered CPR and cardiac massage on Wahl for about 20 minutes.

Shockingly, the billion-dollar Lusail Iconic Stadium in Qatar did not have a single defibrillator available, and they were not able to resuscitate Wahl, who was later taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead – a day after his 48th birthday.

Tom Glancy, a special correspondent for Britain’s Sunday Times, was also seated next to Grant Wahl, and he tore into Qatari officials over Wahl’s death:

We all turned around to see a man in terrifying distress just behind us, clearly suffering some form of attack or seizure. We bellowed for a medic.

Why wasn’t there a defibrillator? That was the question we kept asking each other, as the medics pumped and pumped to no avail.

At this billion-dollar state-of-the-art stadium, which has a VIP suite so lavish it includes a bedroom, which will host the World Cup final, why was there no defibrillator to hand?

Many minutes passed, and we kept expecting it to come. But it never did.

Fact #2 : Grant Wahl Was Sick Days Earlier

A day before he died, Grant Wahl spoke on his podcast – Futbol with Grant Wahl – how he was feeling sick, after weeks of little sleep and high stress.

What he thought was a common cold became severe on December 3, when he started experiencing chest pain.

He tested negative for COVID-19 and sought medical help, but was told that he probably had a case of bronchitis and was given antibiotics and cough syrup.

My body finally broke down on me. Three weeks of little sleep, high stress and lots of work can do that to you.

What had been a cold over the last 10 days turned into something more severe on the night of the USA-Netherlands game, and I could feel my upper chest take on a new level of pressure and discomfort.

I didn’t have Covid (I test regularly here), but I went into the medical clinic at the main media center today, and they said I probably have bronchitis. They gave me a course of antibiotics and some heavy-duty cough syrup, and I’m already feeling a bit better just a few hours later. But still: No bueno.

Fact #3 : Grant Wahl’s Cause Of Death Was Ruptured Aortic Aneurysm

On Wednesday, December 14, 2022, Grant Wahl’s wife, Dr. Celine Gounder, revealed his cause of death.

The New York City Medical Examiner’s Office performed an autopsy on Grant Wahl, and determined that he died from “the rupture of a slowly growing, undetected ascending aortic aneurysm with hemoperricardium“.

As Dr. Celine Gounder noted, there was nothing “nefarious” about his death, and it had nothing to do with COVID-19 or the COVID-19 vaccines.

The chest pressure he experienced shortly before his death may have represented the initial symptoms. No amount of CPR or shocks would have saved him.

His death was unrelated to COVID. His death was unrelated to vaccination status. There was nothing nefarious about his death.

Recommended : Did Megha Thakur Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #4 : Grant Wahl Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Grant Wahl was vaccinated against COVID-19, receiving his first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on April 7, 2021. He announced that he was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, on May 12, 2021.

Wahl appeared to suffer no ill effects from the vaccinations, announcing, “Thrilled to get my 1st Pfizer Covid vaccine dose. Science!” and then “Fully vaxxed. LFG“.

Anti-vaccination activists usually like to blame myocarditis – a known rare side effect of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, but that generally affects teenagers and young adults in their early 20s.

Also, if Wahl had myocarditis, he would have had symptoms like chest pain, breathlessness, and would not be able to endure the gruelling job of covering Qatar World Cup 2022 as a journalist!

Fact #5 : His Wife Served On The Biden COVID-19 Taskforce

Grant Wahl’s wife is Dr. Celine R. Gounder, a infectious disease expert who worked in the Biden administration’s COVID-19 Taskforce.

On Friday, December 9, 2022, she tweeted that she was grateful for the support shown to her, but was in complete shock.

I am so thankful for the support of my husband @GrantWahl’s soccer family & of so many friends who’ve reached out tonight.

I’m in complete shock.

I should point out that if the COVID-19 vaccines were dangerous in any way, Dr. Grounder would be aware, and would not have allowed her husband to be vaccinated.

While anti-vaccination activists are mocking both Wahl and Dr. Grounder, the very fact that he was fully-vaccinated shows that they walked the talk, not like some anti-vaccination activists who turn out to be fully-vaccinated.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s a heart attack, SADS or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.

It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Is FIFA Giving Free 50GB Data For World Cup 2022?!

Is FIFA offering 50 GB of free mobile data to stream World Cup 2022 matches with no interruptions?!

Take a look at the viral offers, and find out why they are just scams!

Claim : FIFA Is Giving Free 50GB Data For World Cup 2022!

People are sharing viral offers for 50 GB of free mobile data to stream World Cup 2022 matches without interruption. Here are some examples :

* FIFA is giving people around the world 50GB of data for free to watch the 2022 Cartel [Qatar] World Cup.*
* I Have Received Mine.*
* OPEN THIS*

* FIFA memberi orang di seluruh dunia 50GB data secara percuma untuk menonton Piala Dunia Kartel [Qatar] 2022.*
* Saya Telah Menerima Milik Saya.*
* BUKA INI*

FREE 50GB DATA PLAN FOR ALL NETWORKS

PERCUMA PELAN DATA 50GB UNTUK SEMUA RANGKAIAN

 

Truth : FIFA Is Not Giving 50GB Free Data For World Cup 2022!

This is yet another SCAM circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why you must avoid it!

Fact #1 : FIFA Is Not Offering Free Mobile Data

First, let me just say it out loud and clear – FIFA is not offering free mobile data anywhere in the world, just to watch World Cup 2022 matches.

FIFA makes its money through sale of television, marketing and licensing rights for World Cup 2022, so there is simply no reason for it to provide free mobile data to stream the matches.

Fact #2 : FIFA Would Never Give You Anything Free

Please do NOT be naive. No one is going to give you free data just to participate in a survey!

FIFA is a corporation whose business is to make money, not a charity to give you free data.

Fact #3 : They Do Not Use Official FIFA Domains

Genuine FIFA promotions would be announced on the official website at www.fifa.com, or their official social media accounts:

  • Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/fifaworldcup/
  • Twitter : https://twitter.com/fifacom
  • Instagram : https://www.instagram.com/fifaworldcup/

They would never run contests or promotions via dodgy domains like “subsidy.buzz”, “50g.kxoe1.xyz”, “50gb450.xyz”, or “zlqxt.top”.

Once you see those random domains, click delete. Or just ignore. DO NOT CLICK.

Fact #4 : They Are Advertisement Scams

After you click on the link, you will be redirected through a series of hidden advertisements before you arrive at the “offer page”.

The offer page will ask you a series of simple questions. Regardless of your answers, you will be congratulated and told you won the 50 GB free data plan for three months.

You will be asked to key in your mobile number to receive the free mobile data, but you will never receive anything. In one variant, you are even redirected to more advertisements, including a video advertisement.

Fact #5 : Brands Won’t Ask You To Forward The Contest

To get that free 50 GB data for three months, you are asked to share the “contest” with 12 friends or groups on WhatsApp.

That’s a clear sign of a scam. No brand will insist that you must share their contest or free offer with WhatsApp friends of groups.

Please do not click to forward their offer to your family and friends. They will not appreciate being scammed with your help!

Fact #6 : They Can Potentially Be Dangerous

Similar scams in the past have more dangerous variants, where you are asked to :
a) install an app, which is really a malware to keep sending you advertisements
b) enter your banking or credit card details, ostensibly to prove your identity or some other excuse

Needless to say – proceeding with this step will open you up to great risk of monetary loss. DO NOT PROCEED!

If you install their malware, you will start receiving promotions, some of which will ask you to send an SMS to receive expensive free gifts like laptops and smartphones.

If you proceed to send the confirmation SMS messages, you will be subscribed and billed for international premium SMS services.

This is VERY DANGEROUS. Never agree to download and register for any unknown app from a website.

Always download your apps from an official App Store like Google Play Store (for Android smartphones) and Apple App Store (for iPhones).

Fact #7 : They Are Just Another Example Of Online Scams

These are just more examples of online scams offering freebies.

Masato Kudo : Cause of Death NOT Vaccine SADS!

Japanese international soccer player Masato Kudo did NOT die from vaccine SADS, and here are the reasons why!

 

Claim : Masato Kudo Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Masato Kudo died suddenly at 32 years of age, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the Japanese soccer player died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on his death:

Masato Kudo dead aged 32: Former MLS star and Japan international tragically dies with tributes pouring in 

Another sudden death 💉💉💉

🚨🚨 Nueva #Repentinitis deportiva: muere el exinternacional japonés Masato Kudo a los 32 años‼️

Al final en vez de quiniela habrá que echar el quininfarto 🤔

✅ De nuevo el cambio climático? O Putin? 💉 Lo único seguro es que las vacunas no han tenido nada que ver

DEP 😔

🚨🚨 New sports #Suddenitis: former Japanese international Masato Kudo dies at 32 years old!!

In the end, instead of pools, we will have to cast the quininfarct 🤔

✅ Climate change again? Or Putin? 💉 The only sure thing is that vaccines have had nothing to do with it

RIP 😔

Masato Kudo : Cause of Death NOT Vaccine SADS!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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, and what we know so far…

Fact #1 : Masato Kudo Died From Complications Of Brain Surgery

Masato Kudo (born May 6, 1980) passed away on Friday, October 21, 2022 – at 32 years of age.

He was a former Japanese International and MLS soccer player, who was playing for Japanese football club Tegevajaro Miyazaki as a striker.

His club announced his death, stating that Masato Kudo died following complications from brain surgery.

Masato Kudo was diagnosed with hydrocephalus – a build-up of fluid in the brain’s ventricles, and hospitalised on October 3, after falling ill the day before.

He had surgery on October 11, but his condition deteriorated, and he was moved into intensive care. Unfortunately, he passed away on October 21.

So let me be clear – Masato Kudo’s cause of death was complications of brain surgery, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

Fact #2 : Masato Kudo Did Not Die On The Field

Several websites are using photos of Masato Kudo lying on the football field, bleeding from his mouth, to suggest that he suddenly collapsed and died while playing.

That’s not true. The photos were taken in May 2016, when Masato Kudo was playing for the Vancouver Whitecaps against Chicago Fire.

During that match, Kudo slammed into a goalkeeper from the opposing team, and knocked himself out. He was bleeding from his mouth because he bit his lip and tongue when he smashed his head after passing out.

Masato Kudo, who was 26 years old at that time, was taken to the Vancouver General Hospital where he received surgery for his fractured jaw.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Masato Kudo Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Masato Kudo was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Japan, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #4 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…

Please help us FIGHT FAKE NEWS by sharing this fact check article out, and please SUPPORT our work!

Don’t forget to protect yourself, and your family, by vaccinating against COVID-19!

Shebby Singh Received Booster Dose 2 Days Before He Died?

Did former national footballer Shebby Singh get vaccinated with the booster dose 2 days before he died?

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

 

Claim : Shebby Singh Received Booster Dose 2 Days Before He Died!

A blogger who calls himself Fernz The Great (real name : Joe Fernandez) posted an article claiming that that former footballer Shebby Singh died from the booster dose he received 2 days earlier.

This was then shared on WhatsApp where it went viral. Fernz The Great also posted it on LinkedIn.

BREAKING NEWS! … Shebby Singh had booster dose two days before he died …

My guess was right ..
Only that they didn’t say what booster vaccine he took but I can more or less say it’s Pfzier since a lot of people who took Pfzier are now having myocarditis ..

UPDATE . . . It seems that Shebby Singh had the booster dose two days before he died.

The gov’t will deny he died because of the vaccine.

They will claim that he died after not resting for at least three weeks from the 3rd dose. It’s known from media reports that vaccination, like exercise, affects the heart. The organ may be inflammed temporarily, or permanently, after the vaccine. It won’t be able to cope with exercise carried out within three weeks of a dose.

According to sources in the social media, Singh appeared very tired after the booster dose. That may indicate heart problems and insufficient oxygen intake probably caused by fibrosis i.e. hardening of the lung cells. If fibrosis reaches 50 per cent, the patient will drop dead.

 

Truth : Shebby Singh Did NOT Receive Booster Dose 2 Days Before He Died!

The truth is – Serbegeth Singh (popularly known as Shebby Singh) did NOT receive his booster dose 2 days before he died.

He also did not die from his COVID-19 booster dose, as suggested by Fernz The Great, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Shebby Singh Received Booster Dose 5 Days Prior

Fernz The Great claimed that Shebby received his COVID-19 booster dose 2 days before he died.

The truth is – he received it on 7 January 2022 – 5 days before the incident. This was confirmed by his son, Sonuljit Singh :

He had it on Jan 7 and left us five days later as everyone knows. We do not know what booster shot he had taken as the MySejahtera app had not been updated yet.

Read more : Did Shebby Singh Die From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose?

Fact #2 : Shebby Singh Died From Heart Attack

Sonuljit also confirmed that the post-mortem results showed that his father died from a heart attack, not the booster dose.

“The doctors told us the cause of his death was 99 percent related to a heart attack as his post mortem showed three of his coronary arteries having blockages.

All his vital organs were in perfect working condition, and there were also no signs of any allergic reaction.

His heart was ready to go at any time, and it had nothing to do with the booster shot.”

Fact #3 : Atherosclerosis Takes Time To Build Up

I personally pointed out to Fernz The Great that he was posting misinformation. His response was to point out that Sonuljit said that his “father’s three arteries [were] almost completely blocked!

Fernz The Great is suggesting that the COVID-19 vaccines caused Shebby’s heart arteries to clog up. That’s complete nonsense.

Atherosclerosis is the gradual buildup of plaque (fats, cholesterol and other substances) in and on the artery walls. This happens over a long period of time – years.

Eventually, the plaques grow so big they significantly narrow your arteries, and block blood flow. They can also burst and break off, and cause blood clots.

This takes years to form, and is highly dependent on diet, so it is simply not possible for COVID-19 vaccines to cause.

Fact #4 : Side Effects Are Evidence Of Vaccines Working

Fernz The Great also said (without evidence) that Shebby looked very tired after getting the booster shot, and suggested that it was giving him heart problems and insufficient oxygen intake.

That’s complete and utter nonsense.

Vaccines work by triggering our body’s immune system to identify the pathogen, and make antibodies against it.

Whenever we get vaccinated, we should expect to get some side effects – muscle ache, fever, etc. These side effects generally dissipate quickly, usually within 1-3 days.

That’s our body’s reaction to what it thinks is a real infection. It’s really no different than how our body would behave if we actually got infected.

So, it is not surprising for Shebby to feel unwell for a day or two after getting his COVID-19 vaccination.

Shebby’s son, Sonuljit, has called for people to show some respect to his late father and family, and stop spreading fake news.

Now that you know the truth about Shebby’s death, please STOP sharing Fernz The Great’s fake news, and SHARE this fact check instead!

Did Shebby Singh Die From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose?

Did former national footballer Shebby Singh die from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose?

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

Updated @ 2022-01-16 : Added details of his post-mortem results..

Originally posted @ 2022-01-13

 

Claim : Shebby Singh Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!

Right after news spread of former Malaysian national footballer Shebby Singh’s death, out comes the claim that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Serbegeth Singh (Shebby) had his booster vaccine jab on 7th Jan. The next day he felt unwell but recovered in 2 days.

However on the 12th Jan he decidede [sic] to go cycling and suffered a heart attack while cyclrng [sic] and passed away. So guys after you receive your booster please do not exert yourselves for at least 10 days.

 

No Evidence Shebby Singh Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!

Whenever a celebrity dies, it is astounding how quickly people are claiming that his/her death is due to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Look at how people recently claimed that Betty White and Bob Saget both died from their COVID-19 vaccine booster dose!

Yet the evidence shows that neither celebrities died from the COVID-19 vaccines, and the claims were just anti-vaccination FAKE NEWS.

Here is what we know so far about Shebby Singh, and whether he died from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Fact #1 : Shebby Singh Died From Heart Attack

Serbegeth Singh, popularly known as Shebby Singh, collapsed while cycling in Sunway Iskandar, in Iskandar Puteri in Johor Bahru, at around 7 PM on 12 January 2022.

According to Iskandar Puteri district police chief, Assistant Commissioner Dzulkhairi Mukhtar, Shebby was believed to have died from a heart attack.

This was later confirmed by his autopsy.

Fact #2 : Shebby Singh Autopsy Completed

On 13 January 2022, Serbegeth’s son, Sonuljit Singh stated that his father’s autopsy had been completed, after which his remains were taken to the Nirvana Memorial Centre at Jalan Skudai, for the public to pay their last respects.

His remains would later be taken to the Loke Yew Crematorium in Kuala Lumpur on 14 January 2022, where the public there can pay their respects from 3 PM to 4 PM.

Fact #3 : Autopsy Confirmed He Died From Heart Attack

On 16 January 2022, Sonuljit spoke up against the fake news claiming that his father died from the COVID-19 booster shot.

He said that the post mortem indicated that his father died from a heart attack due to existing blockage. He also said that his father had cardiac fibrosis and likely had a silent attack in the past.

“The doctors told us the cause of his death was 99 percent related to a heart attack as his post mortem showed three of his coronary arteries having blockages.

All his vital organs were in perfect working condition, and there were also no signs of any allergic reaction.

His heart was ready to go at any time, and it had nothing to do with the booster shot.”

Sonuljit also shared that his father, siblings and many relatives had a history of similar heart-related ailments.

Fact #4 : Side Effects Are Evidence Of Vaccines Working

Vaccines work by triggering our body’s immune system to identify the pathogen, and make antibodies against it.

Whenever we get vaccinated, we should expect to get some side effects – muscle ache, fever, etc. These side effects generally dissipate quickly, usually within 1-3 days.

That’s our body’s reaction to what it thinks is a real infection. It’s really no different than how our body would behave if we actually got infected.

So, it would not be surprising if Serbegeth felt unwell for 2 days after getting his COVID-19 vaccination.

Fact #5 : No Post-Vaccination Exercise Restriction

Health authorities generally advise against strenuous exercise after getting vaccinated, but there is no actual restriction on exercising after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

The advice is generally meant to avoid accidents if people are exercising while having a headache or fever, and to avoid people conflating post-exercise pain or injury with the vaccine.

Only adolescents and young adults (below 30 years of age) who received the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine need to avoid strenuous exercise and watch out for symptoms of myocarditis / pericarditis :

Even if we assume that he received the Pfizer booster dose, Serbegeth was 61 years old, and very, very unlikely to suffer from the rare adverse effect of myocarditis / pericarditis.

Fact #6 : Pericarditis / Myocarditis Is NOT Heart Attack

Now, we do not know if Serbegeth even received the Pfizer vaccine, but I have to point out that pericarditis and myocarditis are not the same thing as a heart attack (myocardial infarction).

Myocarditis / pericarditis is the INFLAMMATION of the heart muscle (myocarditis) or outer lining of the heart (pericarditis), causing chest pain, shortness of breath or feelings of a pounding or fast-beating heart.

It is generally mild, and most will respond well to medicine and rest, and recover completely. They can usually return to normal daily activities once their symptoms improve / resolve.

Myocardial infarction is the IRREVERSIBLE DEATH of the heart muscle due to a PROLONGED LACK of oxygen supply. This is a medical emergency which will result in death if not treated quickly.

Individuals who survive a myocardial infarction will not recover completely, because you cannot restore the dead heart muscle.

Fact #7 : Pericarditis / Myocarditis Is Treatable

Again, we do NOT know if Serbegeth even received the Pfizer vaccine, but I have to point out that even if he did – it would not result in a heart attack.

Myocarditis and pericarditis from vaccines is “often mild, and cases usually resolve after a few days with treatment and rest“.

They also result in noticeable symptoms, so people generally seek treatment before anything serious happens :

  • chest pain
  • shortness of breath
  • heart palpitations / pounding heart

As an avid sportsman, Serbegeth would have noted those symptoms, and sought medical attention. It is doubtful that he would have gone cycling while experiencing such symptoms.

Did Christian Eriksen Collapse From Pfizer Vaccine?

Did Danish footballer Christian Eriksen collapse on the field after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine?

Find out what’s going viral, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Christian Eriksen Collapsed After Receiving Pfizer Vaccine!

After Danish footballer Christian Eriksen collapsed during a Euro 2020 match, antivaxxers started claiming that it happened after he received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Tweets from Luboš Motl, a Czech theoretical physicist, and GeraYaYo2 – a Canadian citizen, went viral recently.

They have since deleted two of their tweets, but the Internet never forgets…

Luboš Motl : Christian Eriksen, the Danish player who suddenly collapsed on the pitch, plays for Inter Milan. The chief medic and cardiologist of that Italian team confirmed on an Italian radio station that Eriksen has received the Pfizer vaccine on May 31st.

GeraYaYo2 : Inter Milan Chief Medic and Cardiologist confirmed that he received the Pfizer vaccine 12 days ago. he spoke an hour ago on Radio Sportiva from Italy.

GeraYaYo2 : Christian Eriksen, a perfectly fit soccer player who plays for one of the top soccer teams in the world and has the best medical attention, collapsed on the field today due to heart failure. Thanks [sic] God they were able to bring him back to life.

He was given Pfizer a few days ago

 

Truth : Christian Eriksen Did Not Collapse Because Of Pfizer Vaccine!

Like the vast majority of negative news about COVID-19 vaccines, this is yet more FAKE NEWS created by antivaxxers.

They did not even hesitate to LIE about someone’s medical emergency to push their agenda. Absolutely disgraceful and shameless!

Fact #1 : Christian Eriksen Was Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19

The truth is Christian Eriksen was not vaccinated against COVID-19.

Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirmed this on 13 June 2021, stating, “He did not have Covid and was not vaccinated either.

Luboš Motl refused to accept that, claiming “my source could have been untrue, I am just unsure enough” and “It is not settled for me at this moment.

Is Luboš a cardiologist? Does he have evidence to the contrary? No. So ignore his ignorant blather.

Fact #2 : Radio Sportiva Denied The Claim

Radio Sportiva denied that the claim, stating,

The information reported in the tweet mentioned is false. We have never reported any opinion from the Inter medical staff regarding Christian Eriksen’s condition. Please remove the content from the tweet author, otherwise we will be forced to take action.

Fact #3 : Most Euro 2020 Players Not Vaccinated

There was no requirement for soccer players to vaccinate against COVID-19 before playing in Euro 2020.

That’s because they are all healthy young adults, most of whom do not yet qualify for COVID-19 vaccinations (which are being prioritised for older people with co-morbidities).

The Spanish squad, for instance, received emergency COVID-19 vaccination on 11 June 2021 – the first day of Euro 2020, and just 3 days before their first game.

Why? Because their team captain Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente tested positive for COVID-19!

Ironically, even GeraYaYo2 acknowledged that on 15 June 2021, stating that 870 Euro 2020 soccer players were not vaccinated.

Fact #4 : Christian Eriksen Had Cardiac Arrest, Not Cardiac Failure

GeraYaYo2 claimed that Christian Eriksen collapsed due to cardiac failure. That is FALSE.

Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest, and we know this to be true because he was successfully resuscitated by CPR and a defibrillator.

Cardiac failure happens gradually and over a long period of time. It doesn’t result in a sudden collapse like that. Rather, your heart has trouble pumping blood to the rest of your body, so you feel weak and breathless.

Cardiac arrest happens suddenly – your heart stops pumping and you collapse immediately – unconscious and (usually) not breathing, which was exactly what happened to Christian Eriksen.

A person with heart failure will not look healthy, whereas cardiac arrest can happen even to people who are young and ultra-fit like soccer players.

Heart failure can be treated with medication, but a cardiac arrest is a medical emergency – you will die if you are not immediately resuscitated.

Fact #5 : Christian Eriksen To Be Fitted With A Heart Starter

On 17 June 2021, Denmark’s team doctor, Morten Boesen, said that Christian Eriksen will be fitted with an ICD due to heart “rhythm disturbances”.

“Christian has accepted the solution and the plan has moreover been confirmed by specialists nationally and internationally who all recommend the same treatment.”

Known colloquially as a heart starter, the ICD (Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator) is designed to automatically correct most life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms).

Kaspersky Tips On Beating Hackers During Euro 2016

June 13, 2016 – On Friday, 10 June, thousands of companies across Europe and the rest of the world are likely to discover they have more remote workers than they did the day before, as the Euro 2016 football tournament gets underway. Fans trying to keep on top of work using mobile devices while surrounded by crowds of strangers, insecure public Wi-Fi networks and the distraction of a match will be immensely vulnerable to cyberthreats. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps that they and their employers can take to stay safe.

The Euro 2016 football tournament, hosted by France, brings together 24 teams for 51 matches. Millions of fans will be watching the games in stadiums, bars and at public screenings. Employers have been urged to let staff work more flexibly or from home so they can watch key national games, but some employees may take matters into their own hands, working from mobile devices while watching a game with fellow supporters. The IT security risks of such behaviour are immense. Neither employers nor employees may be fully aware of or prepared for just how vulnerable they are about to become.

To help everyone keep important business data safe, regardless of where they are, Kaspersky Lab has drawn up a short essential guide:

 

10 Things Remote-Working Fans Can Learn From The Players On The Pitch

1. Take responsibility for your own performance

A recent Kaspersky Lab study into ransomware found that less than 4% of adults in the US[i] would mind if work documents on their device were lost through cybercrime, while 77% would panic if they lost financial info. Indifference doesn’t lead to secure behaviour. If you are planning to work on the move, you need to feel responsible for the safety of the business information you handle.

2. Everyone is watching you

Logging into a device where anyone can look over your shoulder and make a note of your passwordor the work you’re doing – so-called ‘visual hacking’ – makes it easy for others to break into your device or steal information. Keep your data to yourself.

3. Keep your eye on the ball

Phishing and ransomware emails look increasingly convincing and can even appear to come from a colleague. If the message is unexpected, contact the sender directly, and never click on an attachment or a link in an email from someone you don’t know.

4. Don’t reveal your game plan

Don’t transmit anything unless you know it’s encrypted. With WhatsApp and Apple’s iMessage service now encrypting communications end-to-end as standard, email is rapidly becoming the most vulnerable form of business communications[ii]. Use the most secure channel you have access to.

5. Beware Man-in-the-Middle attacks

Using a free, public Wi-Fi network to stay in touch with work is extremely high-risk. An attacker can easily insert themselves into the network and spy on or intercept all your communications. They can do the same between an email and your business server[iii]. End-to-end encryption prevents this – so if you don’t have it, don’t email till you’re somewhere secure or use a VPN (virtual private network).

[adrotate banner=”5″]

6. Prepare for the worst

Employers unprepared for the sudden increase in remote working may not have the most appropriate security installed on work devices, let alone employees’ personal devices. If it’s too late to get this installed, then at the very least don’t leave home without the most up-to-date version of device software installed. Mobile devices are not immune to cyberattack: in 2015, Kaspersky Lab prevented nearly three million attempts to infect mobile devices[iv] with a Trojan.

7. The referee can make mistakes

Websites, network service providers, operating systems etc. do their best to provide protection or alerts: such as the new malware and phishing website warnings introduced by Bing[v]. However, the baddies are increasingly cunning and if there’s a point of weakness, they’ll find it. Confine your remote work to things that are not business critical or sensitive.

8. But don’t blame the referee for all mistakes

Sometimes things go wrong; devices get broken, lost or stolen, or affected by malware or ransomware. The best thing to do is to come clean and let your IT department know immediately so they can take appropriate steps, such as blocking or remote-wiping the device, or isolating the malware before the infection takes hold.

9. Don’t make victory easy for the other side

Cybercriminals generally prefer the path of least resistance. Solid security, security updates, a hard-to-crack password, the use of the latest software, a business VPN and encrypted communications all make it harder for an outsider to gain access to your device and business information.

10. But don’t expect to win without trying

Kaspersky Lab has found that only around half (53%) of consumers make use of the security features that come with their device[vi]. To stay ahead of the hackers, you need to get to grips with these security essentials. It’s about focus and commitment, supported by the right equipment. Just like football.

“Euro 2016 should be a celebration of football for fans the world over to enjoy. Sadly, occasions where people are more relaxed about device and data security can quickly become a happy hunting ground for hackers. Cybercriminals won’t hesitate to pounce on an under-protected football supporter trying to work remotely. A few basic precautions before, during and after the match will help employers and their workforce to stay safe – leaving them free to enjoy the glorious spectacle of sport,” said David Emm, Principal Security Researcher, Kaspersky Lab.
