Shebby Singh Received Booster Dose 2 Days Before He Died?

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.

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 After Receiving 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

 

No, 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.
