Did More Die From Vaccine Than Virus In Taiwan?!

Did More Die From Vaccine Than Virus In Taiwan?!

Did more people die from the vaccine than the COVID-19 virus in Taiwan?!

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

 

Claim : More People Died From Vaccine Than Virus In Taiwan!

People are sharing an NTD News video which claims that more people died from the vaccine, than the COVID-19 virus in Taiwan!

Here is a transcript of what the NTD News newscaster said in the segment called China In Focus.

In Taiwan, the number of people dying after their COVID vaccination is exceeding the number of deaths from the virus itself.

Taiwan’s health authorities said that as of Monday, deaths after vaccination reached 865 while deaths from the virus are at 845.

Vaccines currently offered in Taiwan include AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech and Taiwan’s own vaccine – Medigen. Out of the 865 deaths after vaccination, over 600 were from AstraZeneca, and nearly 200 deaths after a Moderna shot.

 

Truth : More People Did NOT Die From Vaccine Than Virus In Taiwan!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists to scare people from protecting themselves against COVID-19, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was From October 2021

The viral video is really old, being originally released by US-based NTD News on October 21, 2021.

Fact #2 : Taiwan Had Few COVID-19 Cases In 2021

Taiwan effectively blocked the spread of COVID-19 cases in 2021 through lockdowns, travel bans, and quarantine measures.

Hence, they had relatively few cases, and very few deaths back in October 2021 when the viral video was first broadcast.

Taiwan experienced a massive surge of COVID-19 cases and deaths that started in May 2022 and has not yet ceased in August 2022. So far, over 9400 people have died from COVID-19 in Taiwan.

 

Fact #3 : Vaccine “Death” Data Was From VAERS

The vaccine death data quoted in the NTD News video was taken from the Taiwanese VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Notification System), which is based on the US VAERS.

Just like US VAERS and the UK Yellow Card system, Taiwan VAERS reports have not yet been verified, and cannot be taken at face value.

Anyone who even bothers to read the highlighted WARNINGS on such pharmacovigilance platforms would have understood that their data and reports cannot be considered evidence of any kind, because:

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

All reports of post-vaccination deaths or injuries reported in such pharmacovigilance systems have to be investigated and verified.

Fact #4 : No Evidence Of 865 Deaths Caused By Vaccine

To be clear – there is currently no evidence that the 865 deaths in the Taiwanese VAERS report were caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

Healthcare professionals in Taiwan are obligated to report deaths within 28 days of receiving a vaccine dose, even if they are not related to the vaccine.

Making an adverse reaction report is no different from making a police report. If you make a police report, it is registered in the system. However, that doesn’t mean a crime was actually committed. The police will have to investigate and determine if you were lying / mistaken, or there was indeed a crime.

Similarly, these adverse reaction reports are just reports. They must first be investigated, in order to determine if they are really side effects of the vaccine, or completely unrelated.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Deaths 6X Higher Than Post-Vaccine Deaths

Even if we accept unverified VAERS data at full face value, the number of reported deaths post-vaccination are far fewer than deaths from COVID-19.

Here are the latest statistics from Taiwan’s VAERS, as of August 11, 2022 :

  • 57,779,983 vaccine doses were administered
  • 1,541 deaths were reported within 28 days of receiving a vaccine dose
  • 9,342 deaths from COVID-19 infections were reported

Even the unverified VAERS data shows that the risk of dying from a COVID-19 infection is 6X more than the risk of dying from ANY particular cause after getting a vaccine dose.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Deaths Are Rare

Taiwan has a separate body – the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which  investigates and determines if any specific post-vaccination death or injury is directly related to a COVID-19 vaccine.

While the VICP does not reveal the exact number of cases, news reports show that there are about only a dozen or so cases of deaths in Taiwan directly attributed to a COVID-19 vaccine.

Even to date, there is simply no evidence that there are over 800 deaths that have been attributed to the COVID-19 vaccines in Taiwan.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Deaths In Taiwan Are Compensated

The VICP not only investigates and certifies that any deaths are caused by the vaccine, it also awards compensation to the families. For example :

  • In June 2022, it awarded the T$3.5 million (about US$116,673) to the family of a woman who died from a stroke (intracerebral haemorrhage) after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine,
  • In May 2022, it awarded the maximum T$6 million (about US$200,000) to the family of a woman who died from VITT after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.

This puts paid to the claim that people who receive the COVID-19 vaccine are not compensated for any death or injury that may occur.

Fact #8 : Anti-Vaccine Claims All Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists twisting the facts to deceive you into believing that vaccines are dangerous.

So far, their COVID-19 vaccine claims have proven to be false… at every instance!

Did Saudi Ambassador Muhammad al-Qahtani Die From Vaccine?!

Did the Saudi Ambassador to Egypt, Muhammad al-Qahtani, die from the COVID-19 vaccine while giving a speech?!

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

 

Claim : Saudi Ambassador Muhammad al-Qahtani Died From Vaccine?!

People are sharing a video which they claim shows the Saudi ambassador Muhammad al-Qahtani collapsing and dying from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are some of the comments that accompany the viral video :

The #Saudi ambassador, Muhammad al-Qahtani, fell and died during a speech at a conference in the #Egyptian capital, #Cairo, in which he praised president A-Sisi and described him as “the dean of humanity.

Hmm, how may #clotshot’s did he take? #SaudiArabia #BreakingNews

The Saudi ambassador, Muhammad al-Qahtani, fell and died during a speech at a conference in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

Sadly doctors confirmed it was caused by Sudden Adult Death Syndrome(SADS), and totally unrelated to all his COVID vaccines.

 

Truth : Saudi Ambassador al-Qahtani Did Not Die From Vaccine?!

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

Fact #1 : He Was Not Saudi Ambassador To Egypt

First, let me confirm that the man in the video clip – Muhammad al-Qahtani – is NOT the Saudi ambassador to Egypt.

The current Saudi ambassador to Egypt is Osama Naqli, who is very much alive.

In fact, Osama Naqli himself dismissed the false rumour, and also confirmed that the man was not one of Saudi Arabia’s ambassadors, or a Saudi diplomat.

Fact #2 : He Was A Saudi Businessman

The man in the viral video is Saudi businessman Muhammad bin Nasser bin Wazan al-Qahtani, who now resides in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Mr. al-Qahtani owns the Al-Salam Holding Company, and was giving a speech at the Arab-African Conference in Cairo on Monday, 8 August 2022, when he collapsed and died.

This is apparently his Twitter account, and this is a video of him.

Fact #3 : His Cause Of Death Is Currently Unknown

Mr. al-Qahtani was taken away to another room to receive medical attention by security guards, but passed away.

His cause of death is currently unknown. That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”. It means – no one knows why he collapsed and died suddenly.

Until an autopsy is performed and his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Muhammad al-Qahtani died of this or that cause is lying to you.

Fact #4 : He Collapsed Mid-Speech

In the clearest video of the incident, Mr. al-Qahtani was seen praising UAE President Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nas a “dean of humanity and a man of peace” before he paused, and collapsed.

Until his sudden collapse, he does not appear to be ill. The video shows him standing and speaking normally, and he even turned several times to gesture at people to the side.

That does not suggest that he was suffering from any debilitating medical conditions like myocarditis, for example.

Fact #5 : There Are Thousands Of SADS Deaths Every Year

It is possible that Muhammad al-Qahtani may have died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

But that does not mean SADS is caused by COVID-19 vaccines. That would be rather ludicrous as SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Fact #6 : Unknown If Muhammad al-Qahtani Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Muhammad al-Qahtani 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 both Saudi Arabia or the UAE, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Read more : Did FDA ask for 75 years to release Pfizer vaccine data?

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

Even if Muhammad al-Qahtani was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

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

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

How Wikipedia Was Used To “Kill” Conor McGregor!

Find out how a prankster used Wikipedia to fool Google into “killing” Conor McGregor!

 

Google Fooled Into “Killing” Conor McGregor!

On August 5, 2022, Google was fooled into “killing” Irish mixed martial artist, Conor McGregor.

Many people started posting screenshots of Google Search showing that Conor McGregor died on August 4, 2022.

But the truth was – Conor McGregor is very much still alive. In fact, he posted photos he took with Arnold Schwarzenegger a day after he purportedly died…

And a day later – a photo of himself relaxing in Ralph Lauren tights by the sea on August 6, 2022.

Despite those social media posts, people were still confused, asking why is Google showing that Conor McGregor died on August 4, 2022.

why does it say conor mcgregor is dead if you google it?

Wtf is this? Searched Conor dead and this is what came up? @TheNotoriousMMA
you good champ? Google saying you’re dead

Are we not gonna talk about this how he is allegedly dead 🤷🏼‍♀️@TheNotoriousMMA

 

How Wikipedia Was Used To “Kill” Conor McGregor!

This Google search debacle was traced to a prankster who edited the Spanish Wikipedia article about Conor McGregor, to include a date of death.

Due to the importance Google Search gives information on Wikipedia, and how Knowledge Graph pulls from Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects, the false date of death was given undue prominence.

Even after the fake date of death was removed from Wikipedia, it remained cached in the Google search results, prolonging the confusion.

This was what a spokesperson for Wikimedia Foundation explained :

It looks like the Spanish Wikipedia article about Conor McGregor was vandalized yesterday to include a date of death and has since been resolved.

Given the way Knowledge Graph results pull from Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects, this can (in rare instances) result in some vandalism being cached in search results, sometimes even after it’s already been addressed on Wikipedia.

It appears that the issue has also been addressed in search results.

This death hoax highlights the dangers of open databases like Wikipedia, and the importance Google Search gives its information.

This makes us wonder – what other Wikipedia entries have been faked / vandalised without admins realising it, that are reflected in Google Search results.

Perhaps Google needs to tune down its reliance on Wikipedia entries…

Did Sam Gannon Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Emmerdale actor Sam Gannon die suddenly from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?!

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

 

Claim : Sam Gannon Died From Vaccine-Induced SADS!

Within hours of news breaking that Emmerdale actor Sam Gannon died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

Here are just some examples circulating on social media :

Actor Sam Gannon 31, dies suddenly whilst staying with his family in America.

Another case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome I wonder? 🤔

31 years old. Fit and healthy actor. Dies suddenly. 🤔🤷🏼‍♂️🤔

Another vaccinated young man dies suddenly….

Emmerdale actor Sam Gannon dies suddenly at the age of 31

<dies suddenly klaxon>

Poor guy. When are you saps going to wake up?

 

No Evidence Sam Gannon Died From Vaccine SADS!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries 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 the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Sam Gannon’s Death Is Being Investigated

Sam Gannon died on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, while visiting family in California.

The full circumstances surrounding Sam’s death are being investigated by the police, but they are not treating his death as suspicious.

In other words – Sam Gannon’s cause of death is currently unknown.

That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”. It means – no one knows why Sam Gannon died suddenly.

Until an autopsy is performed and his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Sam Gannon died of this or that cause is lying to you.

Fact #2 : Sam Gannon Had A Congenital Heart Condition

Sam Gannon’s mother, Angela Gannon, said that he had a heart condition from birth which had “reared its ugly head” in recent months.

While his mother did not reveal what was his congenital heart condition, it seems likely that it may have a role in his death.

Fact #3 : His Family Never Blamed Vaccine For His Death

Sam Gannon’s family started a JustGiving page to raise money to bring his body back to the UK, in which they stated:

Due to the recent and sudden passing of Sam. All donations will be put towards the repatriation of his body from the US and his funeral.

He was a “real life Duracell bunny” with a seemingly endless supply of energy and love. A son, grandson, brother, uncle, partner and friend, he will be missed greatly by everyone who knew him.

We are putting the target as £17,000 as we do not yet know the actual cost.

Sam was a true performer, and any extra money raised will be donated to a UK charity supporting youth theatre, a cause close to Sam’s heart.

Amy, Sam’s sister, is also looking at setting up a foundation in Sam’s name to support people who find themselves in a similar position to him and need extra support.

All donations are greatly appreciated.

If his death was caused by COVID-19 vaccination, you can be sure that his family would have said something to that effect, but they notably did not do that.

So anyone who claims that Sam Gannon died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

Fact #4 : Sam Gannon Was Likely Fully-Vaccinated

While there is no direct evidence that Sam Gannon was vaccinated against COVID-19, he travelled to the United States to visit relatives in California.

The United States currently require non-residents to be fully-vaccinated to travel to the US. While it is possible to travel to the United States with a vaccine exemption, it is more than likely that Sam Gannon was fully-vaccinated.

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

Even if Sam Gannon was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

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

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

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

Did Dillon Quirke Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did 24 year-old hurling star, Dillon Quirke, die from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?!

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

 

Claim : Dillon Quirke Died From Vaccine-Induced SADS!

Right after news broke that 24 year-old hurling star Dillon Quirke collapsed during a game and died, people started claiming that his death was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

I presume the family are looking for a post mortem in the case of tragic hurling star Dillon Quirke Tipperary, who died yest. In light of the noticeable increase of athlete deaths and injuries internationally following the jab, I think this would be prudent. #suddendeaths2022

Magician with a hurl. Devastating news. Can’t help thinking the vaccine was in some way related as there’s been so many similar incidents recently worldwide

[/su_note]

it is a jab i am sad to say

No Evidence Dillon Quirke Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or injuries 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 the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Dillon Quirke’s Cause Of Death Is Currently Unknown

Dillon Quirke collapsed during a county senior championship game at the Semple Stadium on Friday, August 5, 2022.

His Clonoulty-Rossmore teammates, and his opponents Kilruane MacDonaghs, quickly came to his aid.

He received medical attention on the field, before being sent to the Tipperary University Hospital where he later died.

This was the official statement by the Tipperary Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) :

Tipperary GAA extends its heartfelt and sincere sympathies to Dan, Hazel, Shannon, Kellie and the extended Quirke family. Also, to the Clonoulty Rossmore GAA Club and his teammates on the sad and tragic passing of Clonoulty Rossmore and Tipperary hurler Dillon Quirke.

Dillon became ill during Friday evenings County Senior Hurling Championship game between Clonoulty Rossmore and Kilruane MacDonaghs in Semple Stadium and was taken to Tipperary University Hospital in Clonmel where he passed away.

You will note that they did not mention any cause of death. Dillon Quirke’s cause of death is currently unknown.

That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”. It means – no one knows why Dillion Quirke died suddenly during a hurling game.

Until an autopsy is performed and his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Dillon Quirke died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.

Read more : Did NHL Player Bryan Marchment Die From Vaccine SADS?

Fact #2 : Dillon Quirke Had Heart Problems For Years

Dillon Quirke had heart problems for years, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

In 2018, Quirke took a break from hurling after he contracted viral myocarditis. As he explained himself :

I had a virus called myocarditis last year and that took a lot out of me so I had to take three or four months off, I wasn’t allowed to do a thing.

I took last year off and I got back in with the club and it was nice to get a call by Liam Sheedy this year and I just wanted to give it my best shot.

The lining of your heart gets swollen, it comes under stress, it can often happen when your immune system is low.

I collapsed at home one day after work and I went down to hospital and after a good few tests, they eventually found out what was the problem.

I had to take away physical contact, no training for three months. I just wasn’t able to catch up so I thought it was best to take a break for the year.

Even after he came back to hurling, he collapsed again after just three months on the field. And when he got back with the team again, he developed shingles.

I collapsed and then I came back after three months and I collapsed again and was taken off in the ambulance again.

That’s why I had to take a break. When I came back then with the club, I got shingles.

My immune system was very low. The doc is very good as well so he keeps track. I still do tests but it’s all 100 per cent now.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Dillon Quirke Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Dillon Quirke 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 Ireland, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

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

Even if Dillon Quirke was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

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

Fact #5 : Many Athletes Die Unexpectedly Every Year

What many of us do not realise is that many athletes die unexpectedly every year, and the number has been steadily increasing every year.

This chart from the Maron study shows a progressive rise in sudden death reports of 6% per year, from 1980 to 2006.

In fact, the number of sudden deaths in young and fit athletes more than quadrupled from 1980 to 2006!

This debunks the claim that such a rise in sudden death must be due to the COVID-19 vaccine, which obviously did not exist back then.

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #8 : 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…

Did NBA Legend Bill Russell Die From Vaccine?!

Did NBA legend Bill Russell die from the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the initial autopsy results?!

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

 

Vancouver Times : NBA Legend Bill Russell Dead From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Vancouver Times just posted an article, claiming that NBA legend Bill Russell died from the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the initial autopsy results.

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

NBA superstar Bill Russell died Sunday with his wife at his side, at the age of 88, according to a statement posted on social media. The vaccine was determined to be the cause of the death, according to the initial autopsy.

Russell started feeling unwell immediately after the first vaccination, and his health continued to deteriorate with each successive shot.

Truth : Bill Russell Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Vancouver Times to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Bill Russell Died Peacefully

Bill Russell’s family issued an official statement in which they stated that he passed away peacefully,. with his wife by his side.

It is with a very heavy heart we would like to pass along to all of Bill’s friends, fans, & followers:

Bill Russell, the most prolific winner in American sports history, passed away peacefully today at age 88, with his wife, Jeannine, by his side.

It notably did not mention the COVID-19 vaccine as his cause of death, so anyone who claims that they did (looking at Jason Pires of Vancouver Times!) is LYING to you.

Read more : Was Bill Gates Just Arrested By German Military?!

Fact #3 : There Was No Autopsy Report

Vancouver Times falsely claimed that an autopsy performed on Bill Russell revealed that he died from a heart attack brought upon by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Not only was there no autopsy report by the coroner’s office, COVID-19 vaccines cannot cause heart attacks, which are caused by the blockage of one or more coronary arteries.

Fact #4 : Bill Russell Was Vaccinated In 2021

Bill Russell was vaccinated in February 2021, notably using the occasion to film a PSA video for the NBA on the importance of getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

I just arrived to get my COVID shot, and this is one shot I won’t block. … Let’s do this together.

However, it is unknown if he received his first or second booster dose.

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

Even if Bill Russell received the second booster dose against COVID-19, he would have received it months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

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

Fact #6 : Bill Gates And Dr. Tedros Were Not Arrested

Vancouver Times created the fake stories that both Bill Gates and WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus were arrested for crimes against humanity.

That was completely fabricated to trigger conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story.

INTERPOL does NOT have the power to arrest or charge anyone of any crime in any country around the world.

Fact #7 : There Are No Arrest Warrants For Justin Trudeau + Klaus Schwab

Vancouver Times also created the fake story that INTERPOL issued arrest warrants for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and WEF Chairman Klaus Schwab.

There is no arrest warrant for either men. This was fabricated by Vancouver Times to trigger conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists to share their fake news.

Fact #8 : There Is No Plandemic

To bait anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story, Vancouver Times used their favourite term – plandemic.

There is no such thing as a plandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic was not part of some nefarious scheme to bankrupt the world to bring the West under communism.

More than 2.5 years after the COVID-19 pandemic started, the world isn’t bankrupt, and the West is no closer to becoming communist.

Fact #9 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on Bill Russell dying from the COVID-19 vaccine.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the American government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about Bill Russell’s death.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single blogger or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #10 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about Bill Russell’s cause of death.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Dr. Paul Hannam : Cause Of Death Was Not Vaccine!

Did Dr. Paul Hannam die from the 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine he received days ago?!

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

 

Claim : Dr. Paul Hannam Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Vancouver Times claims that Dr. Paul Hannam from the North York General Hospital died from the 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine he received just days ago.

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

A top doctor in North York, Toronto has died due to complications from the Covid vaccine.

Dr. Paul Hannam, the chief of emergency medicine and program director at North York General Hospital, died suddenly during a run, local media reported.

Truth : Dr. Paul Hannam Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Vancouver Times to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Dr. Paul Hannam’s Cause Of Death Was Sudden Cardiac Failure

Dr. Paul Hannam collapsed while he was out for a run. His cause of death was determined to be sudden cardiac failure.

Fact #3 : Athletes Die Unexpectedly Every Year

Vancouver Times suggested that Dr. Paul Hannam cannot possibly die because he was in good shape, and exercised regularly.

The truth is – many fit athletes die unexpectedly every year, and the number has been steadily increasing every year.

This chart from the Maron study shows a progressive rise in sudden death reports of 6% per year, from 1980 to 2006.

In fact, the number of sudden deaths in young and fit athletes more than quadrupled from 1980 to 2006!

This debunks the claim that such a rise in sudden death must be due to the COVID-19 vaccine, which obviously did not exist back then.

Read more : Did Hundreds Of Athletes Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects?!

Fact #4 : North York General Hospital Confirmed His Death Unrelated To Vaccine

North York General Hospital issued a statement refuting claims that Dr. Paul Hannam died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

North York General Hospital can confirm that the tragic death of Dr. Paul Hannam was not related to COVID-19 or vaccinations of any kind.

Fact #5 : Dr. Paul Hannam’s Family Never Talked About A Lawsuit

Dr. Paul Hannam’s family never claimed that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine. They certainly did not state that they plan to “hire a team of high-powered lawyers to take on the vaccine companies”.

Vancouver Times just made it up to bait anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story.

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on INTERPOL’s investigation of Bill Gates.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the American government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about his arrest.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

James Caan Autopsy : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine!

The autopsy report for James Caan just confirmed that he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Claim : Vaccine Was Cause Of Death For James Caan Too!

Right after news broke that James Caan has died, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccination.

James Caan most likely died from the blood clots in his heart caused due to the Covid vaccine just like everybody else is dying with blood clots in wall heart in their sleep what the fuck is going on in this world does anybody still take it up the ass #FJB

Couldn’t possibly be related to the covid-19 vaccine side effect could it?

So sad another human had to die from the poison jab

James Caan, actor who played Sonny Corleone in ‘The Godfather,’ dies at 82

no doubt he ws vaxxed w covid-19 vax, de design is 2 kill off old white people 1st, and blacks, and so far it’s workng; Gen. Colin Powell, Marv. Marvin Hagler, DMX all dead

 

James Caan Autopsy : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

But yet again, they have been proven wrong, and we know this for a fact because we now have the autopsy report for James Caan!

Fact #1 : James Caan’s Autopsy Confirmed His Cause Of Death

On July 23, 2022, TMZ obtained the autopsy report for James Caan, which you can download yourself (pdf).

The autopsy report by the Los Angeles Department of Public Health states very clearly that James Cann died from a myocardial infarction (heart attack) brought upon by coronary heart disease.

The autopsy report also stated that James Caan was suffering from two chronic diseases that also contributed to his death – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure.

No other causes of death were found. Not myocarditis (the antivaxxer’s favourite bogeyman), not VITT, not even SADS.

Fact #2 : James Caan Died In A Hospital

The autopsy report also prove another anti-vaccination claim false – that James Caan died in his sleep from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

Anti-vaccination activists jumped onto his family’s statement that James Caan died in the evening, and “assumed” that he died in his sleep.

The autopsy report though clearly states that James Caan was at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center when he died at 9:02 PM on July 6, 2022.

So, no, James Caan did not die unexpectedly in his sleep at home from vaccine-induced SADS, which doesn’t even exist!

Fact #3 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #5 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

James Caan now joins a long list of celebrities whose deaths / injuries have been falsely blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines.

Did James Caan Die From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS?!

Did James Caan die at the age of 82 from COVID-19 vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS)?!

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

 

Claim : James Caan Died From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

Here we go again – within hours of news breaking that James Caan has died, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccination.

Here are just some examples circulating on social media :

James Caan most likely died from the blood clots in his heart caused due to the Covid vaccine just like everybody else is dying with blood clots in wall heart in their sleep what the fuck is going on in this world does anybody still take it up the ass #FJB

Couldn’t possibly be related to the covid-19 vaccine side effect could it?

no doubt he ws vaxxed w covid-19 vax, de design is 2 kill off old white people 1st, and blacks, and so far it’s workng; Gen. Colin Powell, Marv. Marvin Hagler, DMX all dead

 

Truth : James Caan Did NOT Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries 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 the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : James Caan Died Of A Heart Attack

An autopsy of James Caan revealed that he died from a myocardial infarction (heart attack) brought upon by coronary heart disease.

The autopsy report also stated that James Caan was suffering from two chronic diseases that also contributed to his death – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure.

That is definitive proof that James Caan’s death had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine.

He now joins a long list of celebrities whose deaths / injuries have been falsely blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #2 : His Family Never Mentioned Vaccine As A Cause

Just to be very clear – James Caan’s family never mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine as his cause of death.

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Jimmy on the evening of July 6.

The family appreciates the outpouring of love and heartfelt condolences and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.

If his death was caused by COVID-19 vaccination, you can be sure that his family would have said something to that effect.

Even his son, Scott – also an actor, did not post anything on social media, claiming that his father died from the vaccine.

So anyone who claims that James Caan died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

James Caan and his son, Scott Caan

Fact #3 : James Caan Was 82 Years Old

This is distasteful, but I have to point out that people do die of natural causes from old age.

The average life expectancy in the United States is 77.0 years, as of March 25, 2022. It is shorter for males – 75.1 years, compared to females, whose average life expectancy is 80.5 years.

James Edmund Caan was 82 years old when he died. A death of natural causes at his age is not unexpected – he lived at least 7 years longer than the average American male.

Fact #4 : Unknown If James Caan Was Vaccinated

I should point out that no one knows if James Caan was even vaccinated against COVID-19, although a few blogs have speculated on his vaccination status.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim, there is no vaccine mandate in the United States.

Hence, James Caan may well be unvaccinated against COVID-19, unlike a certain prominent antivaxxer

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

Even if James Caan was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

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

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

Did EU Torture + Kill Hundreds Of African Refugees?!

Did the European Union torture and kill hundreds of African refugees?!

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

 

Claim : The EU Tortured + Killed Hundreds Of African Refugees!

The Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) and pro-CCP (Chinese Communist Party) netizens are sharing a picture of African refugees apparently lying dead, together with this message.

This is massacre within NATO and European Union borders. African immigrants are being tortured and killed in numbers to prevent them from seeking refuge in Europe. This is not for Ukrainians. Do you remember how they treated Arabs and other Asians? Recorded 100 deaths yesterday alone.

For those who condemn Russian actions to restore equality and humanity across the globe let them think again.
Please share it widely and quickly before the West (read the WORST) remove this video from their Facebook.

 

Truth : The EU Did Not Torture + Kill Hundreds Of African Refugees!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and shared by pro-CCP netizens and websites, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Incident Happened In Africa, Not Europe

The viral photo was not taken in Europe, but in Morocco, Africa, of what is now known as the 2022 Melilla Incident.

The 2022 Melilla Incident occurred on Moroccan soil, at the border fence separating Morocco from the autonomous Spanish city of Melilla.

Fact #2 : 2,000 Migrants Attacked The Border Fence

On June 24, 2022, about 2,000 African migrants attacked and tried to break through the Melilla border fence.

Security forces from both Morocco and Spain tried to disperse them, but ended up fighting them for two hours.

Fact #3 : Hundreds Of Migrants Did Not Die

The wumao claim that hundreds of refugees died is easily proven false.

Several refugees died in the stampede when they stepped on each other while trying to flee, while five fell and died trying to scale the fence. In the end…

  • At least 37 migrants died
  • At least 63 migrants were injured
  • Two Moroccan gendarmes (police officers) were killed
  • 140 Moroccan officers were wounded, five seriously
  • 49 Spanish Civil Guards were lightly injured

The wumao intentionally used a picture that shows most of the migrants lying down, instead of other pictures that show them sitting down after being detained.

While it may look like the migrants are dead, they are very much alive. If you look closely at the viral photo, you can see some of them sitting up.

Fact #4 : Individuals In The Photo Were Detained, Not Killed / Tortured

The wumao took the picture from Association Marocaine des Droits Humains – Section Nador (AMDH Nador), and edited out their watermark, so you cannot find the original post.

They did that to avoid people finding out that the migrants in the viral picture were not killed or tortured, from the AMDH Nador’s post :

They are currently in custody at Nador central police station. Given the large number of detained migrants and the heavy charges they may face prosecution, AMDH Nador wishes to mobilize more lawyers to defend them and ensure fair trials.

Unfortunately for them, I managed to trace the source of the viral photo, although the Rafah / Pafah Orient bus in the photo threw me off for a while.

Fact #5 : Moroccan Authorities Were Responsible

The wumao also did not want you to find out that it was the Moroccan authorities that were responsible for tackling the refugees that day.

If you traced the photo  also posted a video showing part of the migrants’ effort to storm the Melilla border fence, in which they stated that the Spanish authorities just “quietly observed” the Moroccan authorities at work :

The video that shows it all. At the moment when the Moroccan authorities were playing the role of gendarme by prohibiting asylum seekers from arriving in Melilla using very violent practices, the Spanish authorities crossed their arms and quietly observed that they getting the dirty job done.

Fact #6 : China Wants To Divert Attention From Xinjiang

The wumao is creating fake news like this, not just to support Russia, but also to divert attention from its oppression of the Uyghur people in Xinjiang.

No, it’s not all kumbaya in Xinjiang, no matter what pro-CCP netizens keep claiming. That’s just Chinese propaganda.

Fact #7 : This Is Chinese Propaganda

This is really nothing more than yet another example of Chinese propaganda created by the infamous Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛).

All of the wumao articles that I looked at so far have proven to be false… at every instance. So please watch out for such false claims.

Did Paul Duncan Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Did 35 year-old former NFL player Paul Duncan die from a vaccine-induced cardiac arrest?!

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

 

Claim : Paul Duncan Died From Vaccine-Induced Cardiac Arrest!

Right after news broke that 35 year-old former NFL player Paul Duncan died from a cardiac arrest while going for a run, people started claiming that his heart attack was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

“The Notre Dame football program is mourning the death of former offensive lineman Paul Duncan, who died on July 15 when he went into cardiac arrest on a run in his neighborhood.”

… another young sudden death.

What a shame. It’s terrible you have to think this but my mind immediately goes to – was he vaccinated?

Denver broncos 35 yo Paul Duncan dies of a heart attack while running. That happens to all young athletes these days, o like Rafael Nadal, at US open! Confused as to why? Research some for yourself the answer is clear.

No Evidence Paul Duncan Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or injuries 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 the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Paul Duncan Died From Cardiac Arrest

Paul Duncan went into cardiac arrest while running in his Atlanta, Georgia neighbourhood on Friday, July 15, 2022. He was hospitalised, but pronounced brain dead the next day.

His wife, Ellen Duncan, confirmed this in her Instagram post on Saturday, July 16, 2022.

Yesterday, Friday July 15th, Paul went into cardiac arrest while on a run in our neighborhood. Today he was pronounced brain dead. We will have a medical examination to understand cause of death.

His body will be donated to people in need of organs and to medical research. Details on funeral arrangements to follow.

Thank you for your prayer and support.

You will note that she did not even mention the COVID-19 vaccine as a cause of his death.

Fact #2 : An Autopsy Will Be Conducted On Paul Duncan

As his wife explained, an autopsy will be conducted on Paul Duncan, to understand his cause of death.

Paul Duncan’s autopsy appears to be completed and his body released to his family, as his funeral mass has been scheduled for Monday, July 25, 2022.

Until that autopsy report is revealed by his wife, anyone who tells you that Paul Duncan died from this or that cause is LYING to you.

Fact #3 : Many Athletes Die Unexpectedly Every Year

What many of us do not realise is that many athletes die unexpectedly every year, and the number has been steadily increasing every year.

This chart from the Maron study shows a progressive rise in sudden death reports of 6% per year, from 1980 to 2006.

In fact, the number of sudden deaths in young and fit athletes more than quadrupled from 1980 to 2006!

This debunks the claim that such a rise in sudden death must be due to the COVID-19 vaccine, which obviously did not exist back then.

Read more : Did Hundreds Of Athletes Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects?!

Fact #4 : Unknown If Paul Duncan Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Paul Duncan was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

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

Unless we know for sure he was vaccinated, anyone who tells you he died from the vaccine is simply lying.

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

Even if Paul Duncan was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

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

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

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

Jak Knight : Cause Of Death Was Suicide, Not Vaccine!

The cause of death for Jak Knight has been confirmed to be suicide, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Antivaxxers : Vaccine Was Cause Of Death For Jak Knight!

Since the news broke that young and rising comedian Jak Knight passed away unexpectedly at just 28 years of age, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Many insisted that he is “yet another” case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

Question? When did Jak Knight get the #WuhanFlyingRatFlu #SuddenAdultDeathSyndrome vaccine? 🤔

R.I.P Jak Knight he shouldn’t have trusted the vaccine

Another one bites the vax?! Holy shit. RIP Jak Knight.

Jak Knight, stand-up comedian and writer, dead at 28 – Fox News IS IT JUST ME??? But people of all ages are dying so suddenly. I know that is the circle of life !!!! BUT SINCE THE JAB PEOPLE ARE DROPPING LIKE FLYS

Jak Knight : Cause Of Death Was Suicide, Not Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

But yet again, they have been proven wrong, and we know this for a fact because Jak Knight was confirmed to have committed suicide.

Jak Knight was found dead on a Los Angeles embankment on Thursday, July 14, 2022. His body was then taken for an autopsy by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

According to a copy of the autopsy report obtained by People on Monday (July 18, 2022), the coroner ruled that the cause of death for Jak Knight was suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

So we have definitive proof that Jak Knight did not die from COVID-19 vaccination, but is yet another sad example of suicide by gun.

Let this autopsy report be the last word on Jak Knight’s cause of death. He died from suicide, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

He now joins a long list of celebrities whose deaths / injuries have been falsely blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines.

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

Truth : Jak Knight Did NOT Die From COVID-19 Side Effects!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries 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 the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Jak Knight Died At Home

First, let us establish what is known so far about Jak Knight’s death, which isn’t much.

  • He died on Thursday night, July 14, 2022
  • He was 28 years old when he died
  • He was found on a Los Angeles embankment.

His death was confirmed by a representative for Knight’s family :

Knight’s loved ones ask that their privacy please be respected during this extremely difficult time.

Fact #2 : Jak Knight’s Cause Of Death Was Suicide

Jak Knight died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, that was ruled as a suicide by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

So we know for sure that he didn’t die from COVID-19 side effects, or died in his sleep as a case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, as alleged by anti-vaccination activists.

Read more : Jak Knight – Cause Of Death Was Suicide, Not Vaccine!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Jak Knight Was Even Vaccinated

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

One “celebrity blog” that often posts unverified rumours claimed that “Jak Knight was vaccinated and during the times of the vaccination exercise, he was a strong advocate for people to take the vaccine.without offering any evidence.

I personally could find not a single instance of Jak Knight ever talking about COVID-19 vaccination.

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

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

Even if Jak Knight was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

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

Did Paul Ryder Die From Cancer On Concert Day?!

Did Paul Ryder die from cancer just hours before a concert?!

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

 

Claim : Paul Ryder Died From Cancer – Rhabdomyosarcoma

A number of rumour / fake news blogs have tried to capitalise on Paul Ryder’s sudden death by falsely claiming that he died from cancer – rhabdomyosarcoma – on the day of his concert.

Vimbuzz : Paul Ryder Family: Wife, Children, Parents, Siblings

English musician Paul Anthony Ryder has given up his breath at the age of 58. He breathed his last on July 15, 2022, from the disease of rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer, according to reports.

The Post (India) : Paul Ryder died at the age of 58 after battling cancer, specifically rhabdomyosarcoma.

Read more : Did Paul Ryder Die From Vaccine On Day Of Concert?!

 

Truth : Paul Ryder Did Not Die From Cancer!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS that some websites create for more page views and money, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Paul Ryder Died On July 15, 2022

First, let us establish what is known so far about Paul Ryder’s death, which isn’t much.

His brother and frontman of the band Happy Mondays, Shaun Ryder, announced that he died on the morning of July 15, 2022.

The Ryder family and Happy Mondays band members are deeply saddened and shocked to say that Paul Ryder passed away this morning

A true pioneer and legend. He will be forever missed ❤️

We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.

Long live his funk x

Fact #2 : Paul Ryder Died Hours Before Show

While Paul Ryder was a heroin addict for over 20 years, he claimed that he never suffered any adverse effect until he was diagnosed with ADHD in 2021 :

I was a heroin addict for 20-odd years, but there’s been no damage off that. I’ve never had anything wrong with me until I was 53.

He was also scheduled to play on the day he died, at the Kubix Festival in Sunderland. That suggests that he was not sick, and was healthy enough to play.

But that didn’t stop anti-vaccination activists and rumour blogs from claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccination.

Read more : Did Paul Ryder Die From Vaccine On Day Of Concert?!

Fact #3 : Paul Ryder’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown

Paul Ryder’s family and band only announced his death, but did not mention a cause of death. That means NO ONE KNOWS (at this time) what he died from.

Let me be clear – his cause of death was not revealed. That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”.

Until an autopsy is performed and his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Paul Ryder died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.

Fact #4 : Rhabdomyosarcoma Is Rare In Adults

Rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare soft tissue cancer that can occur at any age, but most often affects children.

In fact, it is generally considered to be a childhood cancer, with the vast majority of cases occurring in children below 18 years of age, and more than half in children younger than 10 years old.

Fact #5 : Rhabdomyosarcoma Is Highly Aggressive

Rhabdomyosarcoma is highly aggressive, with a 5-year survival rate of 61% for children, and only 27% for adults!

If Paul Ryder had rhabdomyosarcoma, you can be sure he wouldn’t be preparing to play at a concert!

Fact #6 : It Was His Son Who Suffered From Rhabdomyosarcoma

It was not Paul Ryder who suffered from cancer, but his son – Chico, who was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma on December 28, 2012 – almost 10 years ago!

Chico was 6 years old when he had a sore throat and a swelling on his neck, and became very ill just 5 days before Christmas 2012.

He was admitted to the hospitals for tests, and three days later – the diagnosis came back. Chico was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma on December 28, 2012.

In 2020, it was revealed that Chico survived and had been in remission for over 2.5 years.

The rumour blogs probably misread the story when they copied and pasted the information, or they saw that “cancer” and “rhabdomyosarcoma” ranked highly for Paul Ryder and decided to capitalise on those keywords.

Fact #7 : None Of Them Offered Any Evidence

Even if we ignore the fact that Paul Ryder’s family never said publicly that he was suffering from cancer, never mind the same rhabdomyosarcoma that afflicted his son, there is simply no evidence he was suffering from cancer.

He was certainly well enough to prepare to play at the Kubix Festival in Sunderland, the day he died.

None of the websites that claimed Paul Ryder died from cancer / rhabdomyosarcoma, offered anything remotely close to “evidence”.

One of them – Vimbuzz, is famous for creating nonsense articles about celebrities. Recently, they falsely claimed that a source told them Danielle Hampson died in a car accident!

Every mainstream media covering the story is saying the same thing – Paul Ryder’s cause of death remained unknown. If he died from cancer, they would have mentioned it.

Until we know for certain – we cannot simply jump to conclusions… or fall for the fake news / fake videos created by people whose only motivation is to make money from your views and clicks.

Fact Check: Ricky Bibey Cause of Death + CCTV Video

Find out how Ricky Bibey died, and if there really is CCTV video footage showing what went on in his hotel room!

 

Claim : Ricky Bibey Was Murdered, CCTV Video Shows

Rumour blogs have quickly jumped onto the Ricky Bibey story, claiming that he was murdered by his lover, Jennie Platt.

Here is an excerpt from one example by 24update.net from Bangladesh, with the title “Ricky Bibey Cause of Death – Hotel Room CCTV Footage” :

Popular rugby player Ricky Bibey died at the age of 40. He was found dead in a hotel on July 17. The retired player was found dead at the Continental Hotel in Florence, Italy.

A woman with him was rescued with serious injuries. Her name is Jennie Platt. The woman was also seriously injured. The two were rescued and the woman was taken to a local hospital. And rugby player Ricky Bibey has been taken for autopsy.

The deputy woman is currently under close observation at the ICU. His statement has not yet been found. Injury marks were found on both bodies. It was initially considered a planned murder.

 

Truth : No CCTV Video Shows Ricky Bibey Murdered!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by irresponsible rumour blogs to generate more page views for the ad money, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Ricky Bibey Died On July 16, 2022

Let’s start with the basics – they couldn’t even get the date right.

Ricky Bibey died on Saturday morning, July 16, 2022, not on July 17 as they claimed.

Fact #2 : Ricky Bibey Was With A Female Partner

Ricky Bibey checked into Hotel Continentale in Florence, Italy with a female companion on Friday night, July 15. After a night out, they arrived back at the hotel “in high spirits” at 2 AM on Saturday.

Several rumour blogs named his female companion as 43 year-old Jennie Platt – the owner of Jennie Platt Estates, where he worked. That is likely true, but official sources have not named the woman, as of July 18, 2022.

From what we understand, Jennie Platt has been his partner for at least two years now, and she has two children from a previous relationship.

Fact #3 : Ricky Bibey + Partner Were Not Found In Bed

The rumour blogs falsely claimed that Ricky Bibey was found in bed, together with his female partner – both covered in blood.

According to the Italian newspaper, La Nazione, she ran out of the room.

  • Loud noises were heard from their room early in the morning.
  • Just after 7 AM, the woman ran out of the room, covered in blood and screaming for help to neighbouring rooms and a cleaner.
  • The reception alerted the Italian police who arrived shortly after 8 AM.

La Nazione also stated that Ricky Bibey was found on the floor, not in his bed.

Fact #4 : Ricky Bibey’s Partner Was Not Seriously Injured

The rumour blogs falsely claimed that Ricky Bibey’s partner was seriously injured and was being treated in an ICU.

La Nazione stated that despite being bruised and covered in blood, the woman was not in danger of her life.

An insider told Daily Mail that “She is recovering but is still sedated so we are waiting for the go ahead from medical staff at the hospital.

In fact, the Italian police are planning to question her on the evening of July 17, or by the morning of July 18.

Read more : Did Ghislaine Maxwell Just Commit Suicide In Prison?!

Fact #5 : Police Do Not Suspect Murder

The rumour blogs are falsely calling this a murder to drive traffic to their sites. The Italian police do not suspect murder, either his partner by a third party.

Hotel Continentale staff confirmed that the couple returned alone, and no one followed them to their room. There were no signs of a break-in, and the police have confirmed that “no third party was involved“.

The woman who was with Ricky Bibey was not arrested, and the police are only planning to question her to understand what happened in the room.

An autopsy of Ricky Bibey’s body would be carried out on Monday, to “establish levels of alcohol and if any drugs were present“.

Fact #6 : Police Suspect Extreme Sex As Cause Of Death

The police forensics team inspected the room and removed some objects – one of which was said to be “a type of truncheon”.

The coroner, Dr. Martina Focardi, who was also on the scene, inspected the body and did not find any signs of violence.

The initial impression of the case investigators is that this was a case of extreme sex gone wrong, although they are also considering “some sort of domestic argument”.

Fact #7 : Ricky Bibey Appeared To Have Had A Seizure

According to a police source, both Ricky Bibey and his partner were found with a series of cuts, bruises and other injuries. However, she was more seriously injured than he was.

The police source also said that Ricky Bibey appeared to have had some sort of seizure, which could be his cause of death.

Fact #8 : There Is No CCTV Video Footage

The rumour blogs falsely claimed that there is CCTV video footage of what really happened in Ricky Bibey’s hotel room.

That’s nonsense. It is against the law to place or hide video or audio recording devices in hotel rooms. Hotels certainly won’t install CCTV cameras in their guest rooms.

This is just fake news created by rumour blogs to generate more traffic, just like how they falsely claim to have video recordings of Dani Hampson’s car accident.

Needless to say – none of these rumour blogs provided any kind of CCTV footage!

All articles posted by rumour blogs should be considered FAKE NEWS until proven otherwise.

Did Paul Ryder Die From Vaccine On Day Of Concert?!

Did Paul Ryder die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine just hours before a concert?!

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

 

Claim : Paul Ryder Died From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Happy Mondays bass guitarist Paul Ryder died, people starting to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Many insisted that he is “yet another” case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

New sudden death. Paul Ryder the bassist of Happy Mondays dies. Vaccine the cause of death, quite probably.

No Evidence Paul Ryder Died From COVID-19 SADS!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries 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 the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Paul Ryder Died On July 15, 2022

First, let us establish what is known so far about Paul Ryder’s death, which isn’t much.

His brother and frontman of the band Happy Mondays, Shaun Ryder, announced that he died on the morning of July 15, 2022.

The Ryder family and Happy Mondays band members are deeply saddened and shocked to say that Paul Ryder passed away this morning

A true pioneer and legend. He will be forever missed ❤️

We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.

Long live his funk x

Fact #2 : Paul Ryder Died Hours Before Show

While Paul Ryder was a heroin addict for over 20 years, he claimed that he never suffered any adverse effect until he was diagnosed with ADHD in 2021 :

I was a heroin addict for 20-odd years, but there’s been no damage off that. I’ve never had anything wrong with me until I was 53.

He was also scheduled to play on the day he died, at the Kubix Festival in Sunderland. That suggests that he was not sick, and was healthy enough to play.

Fact #3 : Paul Ryder’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown

Paul Ryder’s family and band only announced his death, but did not mention a cause of death. That means NO ONE KNOWS (at this time) what he died from.

Let me be clear – his cause of death was not revealed. That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”.

Until an autopsy is performed and his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Paul Ryder died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Paul Ryder Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Paul Ryder 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 the United Kingdom, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Some anti-vaccination activists claimed that Paul Ryder stated on February 14, 2021 that he was vaccinated, and encouraged other people to get vaccinated – “I’ve had my vaccine, have you had yours?

I traced the claim to a video posted by LGBT+ Sparkle social group on April 29, 2021. As the screenshot shows, this Paul Ryder is a much younger man from Wolverhampton.

Paul Ryder of the band, Happy Mondays, is a much older 53 year-old man from Manchester.

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

Even if Paul Ryder was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

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

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

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

Marion Barber III : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine SADS!

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber III died from a heat stroke, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Claim : Marion Barber III Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

People keep claiming that former Dallas Cowboys running back, Marion Barber III, died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Many insisted that he is “yet another” case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

Marion Barber III Died Due To Heat Stroke, Officials Say – sounds more like SAD SUDDEN ADULT DEATH SYNDROME !! I am very sorry for this unexpected loss and for his family. #SAD #COVID #VACCINE

When your child dies from the vaccine, you are a bad parent. Do not deserve the pleasure of having offspring. #StoptheShots For more see blm loving, jab mandate enforcing #NFL

TOTALLY normal, nothing to see here, not at ALL related to the COVID Vaccine, along with Ray Liotta and Andrew Fletcher. Marion Barber, former Dallas Cowboys running back, dead at 38 #COVID19 #COVIDVACCINE #VaccineSideEffects #rayliotta #andrewfletcher

Marion Barber III Died From Heat Stroke, Not Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Police Found Marion Barber III Dead At Home

On Wednesday, 1 June 2022, a tenant complained about water leaking from Marion Barber III’s apartment. However, apartment staff were unable to contact Barber, and his apartment was locked from the inside.

The Frisco, Texas police was then asked to conduct a welfare check. When they forced their way into the apartment and found 38 year-old Marion Barber III dead.

The police incident report noted that family members had not heard from Barber for six days before his body was found. They also noted that Barber “was known to have a history of medical problems and mental health concerns“.

Fact #2 : Autopsy Report Confirmed Marion Barber III Died From Heat Stroke

The Collin County Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled that the Marion Barber III died from a heat stroke, according to his autopsy report. His death was ruled to be an accident.

According to the autopsy report, police officers found exercise equipment in his unit, and that one of the bathtub faucets in Barber’s apartment was left running with the temperature set to 91°F (33°F).

The coroner noted in his report, “Mr. Barber was known to exercise in sauna-like conditions“.

This autopsy report conclusively confirmed that the cause of death for Marion Barber III was a heat stroke, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #3 : Marion Barber III Did Not Die In His Sleep

Many anti-vaccination activists claimed that Marion Barber III died in his sleep from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

As the autopsy report confirmed – Marion Barber III died while exercising in sauna-like conditions, not while he was sleeping.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Marion Barber III Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Marion Barber III was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccines.

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

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

Even if Marion Barber III was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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 NHL Player Bryan Marchment Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did former NHL player Bryan Marchment die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Bryan Marchment Died From Vaccine SADS!

Here we go again – once it was announced that Bryan Marchment died unexpectedly, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just some examples circulating on social media :

Jamie Sale (Canadian figure skater) : This makes me very sad like many other healthy people who are dying “unexpectedly”

ANOTHER UNEXPECTED DEATH…..53 year old NHL Defenseman Bryan Marchment “dies unexpectedly”

OH COME ON !!!!🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 MORE ADULT SUDDEN DEATH VACCINE SYNDROME?????

HOW MANY HAVE TO DROP BEFORE PEOPLE WAKE UP!!!!!

AAAHHHHGGGGGG😩😩😩😩

Bryan Marchment was another vaccine death. Wake up people

“There was no immediate information on the cause of his death” probably means he took the vax and we don’t want to check why he suddenly died just in case the vax was the cause.

 

Truth : Bryan Marchment Did Not Die From Vaccine SADS!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries 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 the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Bryan Marchment Died Of Natural Causes

Bryan Marchment was a former NHL defence man who became a talent scout for the San Jose Sharks.

He was attending the NHL draft in Montreal, when he died unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 6, 2022. His long-time agent, Rick Curran, confirmed his death.

The Montreal police then confirmed on Thursday, July 7, that Bryan Marchment died of natural causes. A Montreal police spokesperson also said that investigators found “no evidence to indicate” foul play or anything suspicious.

That said – they did not reveal an official cause of death. Unless the Montreal police or Bryan Marchment’s family reveal his cause of death, or autopsy results, this is as good as it gets.

Some blogs have been pushing heart attack, suicide, or drug overdose as his cause of death, but these are just idle speculation at best, and possibly done intentionally to create hype for more page views.

Fact #2 : No One Mentioned Vaccine As A Cause

No one who was close to Bryan Marchment ever blamed the vaccine for his unexpected death.

Not his family. Not his long-time agent, Rick Curran. Not even the Montreal police who investigated his death.

So anyone who claims that Bryan Marchment died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Bryan Marchment Was Vaccinated

I should point out that no one knows if Bryan Marchment was even vaccinated against COVID-19, although a few blogs have speculated on his vaccination status.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim, there is no vaccine mandate in the Canada.

In short, Bryan Marchment may well be unvaccinated against COVID-19, unlike a certain prominent antivaxxer

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

Even if Bryan Marchment was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

Did Comedian Nick Nemeroff Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Juno-nominated comedian, Nick Nemeroff, die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

Updated @ 2022-07-06 : Added Nick’s autopsy and funeral details, as well as his condition prior to his death.
Originally posted @ 2022-06-30

 

Claim : Nick Nemeroff Died From Vaccine SADS!

After news broke that Juno-nominated comedian, Nick Nemeroff, died in his sleep, people started claiming that he died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

Two doses of the vaccine! Publicly refuses any Booster!

Very healthy young 32 yr old! DIES SUDDENLY!!!!!!!!! Wake up people!!!!!!!!!!

Comedian Nick Nemeroff dies suddenly at 32…

His manager said in a text message to CBC News that he didn’t know the cause of death but that he “died in his sleep. 😱😱😱

⚠️Not so much coincidence, this is Vaccines Disaster!

Last words of Comedian Nick Nemeroff who was killed at 32 for speaking up against the vaccine… there’s a covert assassination program going on and those that speak out are targets….

No Evidence Nick Nemeroff Died From Vaccine SADS!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Nick Nemeroff’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown

According to an obituary posted by a Montreal funeral home, and his manager, Morgan Flood of Grand Wave Entertainment, Nicholas (Nick) Nemeroff died in his sleep on Monday, June 27, 2022.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Nick Nemeroff, on Monday, June 27, 2022. Beloved son of Howard and Joanne. Wonderful brother and brother-in-law of Davida and Josh, Alex and Tracy Nemeroff. Incredible uncle of Ora, Imogene, Leo and Marina. Adored grandson of the late Archie Nemeroff.

His cause of death is still unknown. Unknown does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury”. Unknown means that, at this time, NO ONE KNOWS what Nick Nemeroff died of.

It also means that anyone who claims that Nick Nemeroff died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.

Nick’s older brother, Alex, said that his funeral would only take place after an autopsy was performed to determine the cause of death :

We’re still waiting for word as to what happened. There were no outward signs of anything. No one expected this. He was just way too young for this to happen.

Nick’s funeral took place on July 4, 2022 so his autopsy has been completed. We should wait for the official word, from his family or manager, or an autopsy report, to know his actual cause of death.

Note : You can leave a message of condolence to the Nemeroff family here. The family also said that donations in his memory may be made to the Planned Parenthood chapter of your choice.

Fact #2 : His Manager + Family Never Mentioned Vaccine As A Cause

His manager, Morgan Flood, and the Nemeroff family, never mentioned vaccine as Nick’s cause of death.

In their statements and social media posts, they never once mentioned his vaccination, or cause of death. Not even his older brother, Alex.

So anyone who claims that Nick Nemeroff died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

Fact #3 : Nick Wasn’t Feeling Well

Nick Nemeroff was slated to perform at the Comedy Nest on Saturday, 25 June 2022 – 3 days before he died, but he wasn’t feeling well.

So his older brother, Alex, left a message for Comedy Nest’ boss, David Acer, that “Nick wasn’t feeling well, and would be unable to perform“.

Fact #4 : Video Of Nick Nemeroff Was From 2021

Many anti-vaccination activists have been sharing posting a video of Nick, claiming that it showed him disparaging the Pfizer vaccine in his last words before dying.

One of them even created a video, claiming that Nick posted the video from his hospital bed.

The truth is – that was an old video Nick posted on August 23, 2021, in which he joked about being an antivaxxer for the booster shot.

I will not get the third shot. I will not.

Pfizer me once, no shame.

Pfizer me twice, shame on COVID.

Pfizer me three times, shame on you.

You want me to get a third shot, what’s next? A fifth shot?

Nick was mocking those who are worried about getting the third shot, which he received on Christmas Day, December 25, 2021.

Even in that post, he mocked those who believe that ivermectin can cure COVID-19.

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

Nick Nemeroff last received a COVID-19 vaccine more than 6 months ago, if his December 25, 2021 post above is accurate.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

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

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up sudden, unknown deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : There Are Thousands Of SADS Deaths Every Year

It is possible that Nick Nemeroff may have died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

But that does not mean SADS is caused by COVID-19 vaccines. That would be rather ludicrous as SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

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

Minecraft YouTuber, Technoblade, Has Died : so long nerds

YouTube just lost one of its Minecraft maestros – Technoblade – to cancer, and he wrote a last message to those who supported him through the years…

 

Minecraft YouTuber, Technoblade, Has Died : so long nerds

On June 30, 2022, Technoblade’s father revealed in a video that he has died, after succumbing to metastasis from his cancer.

Technoblade disclosed that he had diagnosed with sarcoma in August 2021, after complaining of pain and swelling in his right arm. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy proved unsuccessful, so he underwent a limb salvage operation to avoid amputating his right arm.

Unfortunately, his cancer metastasised and he passed away sometime in June 2022. He was only 23 years old.

In the video titled “no long nerds”, Technoblade’s father revealed that his real name was Alex, and read a letter he wrote just 8 hours before he died.

Hello everyone, Technoblade here. If you’re watching this, I am dead. So let’s sit down and have one final chat.

My real name is Alex. I had one of my siblings call me Dave one time in a deleted video from 2016, and it was one of the most successful pranks we ever done.

Thousands of creepy online dudes trying to get overly personal, going, “Oh hey, Dave, how’s it going?”

Sorry for selling out so much in the past year, but thanks to everyone that bought hoodies, plushies and channel memberships. My siblings are going to college!

Well, if they want to. I don’t want to put any dead brother peer pressure on them. But that’s all from me.

Thank you all for supporting my content over the years. If I had another hundred lives, I think I would choose to be Technoblade again every single time as those were the happiest years of my life.

I hope you guys enjoyed my content and that I made some of you laugh. And I hope you all go on to live long, prosperous and happy lives, because I love you guys. Technoblade out.

 

Works From His Parents To Technoblade Fans

As a parent, I can only imagine how they must feel. No parent should ever have to bury their child. I’m not ashamed to say I cried through the video.

So it comes to no surprise to see his father hold back tears as he recounted how Alex was having a hard time getting his last words out. In the end, they didn’t do the reveal video they planned to do, and he asked his father to read his letter instead.

But Technoblade had a hard time writing it, and in the end, his father got down on his knees and told him that he should not wait for things to get better before writing it. That’s when Technoblade typed out his last words to his fans on his father’s laptop. Alex passed away eight hours later.

He was the most amazing kid anyone could ever ask for. I miss Technoblade. Thank you to all of you, for everything. You meant a lot to him.

The video ended with a message from Technoblade’s mother.

We, the family of Technoblade, wanted all of you to know just how much he adored and respected his fans and colleagues.

From Technoblade’s earliest online days, he was always strategizing ways to delight and reward his audience – giving away online prizes, encouraging good sportsmanship, and most of all sharing his Minecraft adventures for entertainment and laughs.

Even after his eventual successes he somehow managed to keep his good-natured humility, competing with an endearing balance between his confidence and self-deprecating wit. He avoided personal fame and worked hard to keep his true identity confidential, and we ask you to honor his wishes to protect his privacy and the privacy of his family.

This past year has had a lot of rough spots for our son as he battled stage four cancer. But he didn’t complain, and kept using his famous strategic mind to try to beat what he knew were almost impossible odds. My son’s bravery on this path was a shining lesson to all of us who were privileged to walk it with him. Thank you for sharing his journey through it all, as he did the work he loved for his beloved fans.

– Techno’s mom

I can only express my deepest condolences to Alex’s family. May their grief be assuaged by their memories of Alex, and how he touched so many people’s lives.

He may have gone too soon, but he will never be forgotten. As they say, Technoblade never dies!

Jaylon Ferguson Autopsy : Cause Of Death Was Drug OD!

An autopsy has confirmed that Ravens linebacker, Jaylon Ferguson, died from  a drug overdose, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Claim : Jaylon Ferguson Died From Vaccine-Induced SADS!

Just hours after news broke that Baltimore Ravens linebacker, Jaylon Ferguson died, people started claiming that he died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

Vax death 100000% add jaylon Ferguson to that list. 25 yrs old natural causes my left nut

Athletes …. natural causes? More like Vax side effects. Sorry but 25, 26 yr old athletes don’t die from natural causes and it’s happening non stop. Soccer, cricket, rugby, football, basketball…. wake up folks. This isn’t natural

Jaylon Ferguson dead at 26 from vaccine. CBS needs to expose dangers of vaccines.

NFL rocked by tragedy as Jaylon Ferguson dies. Vaccine Deaths. Dropping like Flies. Murdered by their own Govt and the WEF. Right in front of your eyes but your all too Indoctrinated. So sad.

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) ? #Vaccines

Jaylon Ferguson Autopsy : Cause Of Death Was Drug Overdose!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Jaylon Ferguson Died From Drug Overdose

On July 1, 2022, Bruce Goldfarb – spokesman for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner – said that Jaylon Ferguson’s cause of death was the “combined effects of fentanyl and cocaine“.

His death was ruled an accident, based on that autopsy finding. The written autopsy report is not available yet, but they plan to have one completed within 90 days.

So let that be the final word on Jaylon Ferguson – he didn’t die from COVID-19 vaccination. He died from a drug overdose.

Fact #2 : Jaylon Ferguson Was Found Unresponsive

The Baltimore police received a report of a “questionable death” at a home in Baltimore’s Harwood neighbourhood on Tuesday night, 21 June 2022.

When they arrived at around 11:25 PM, and they found Jaylon Ferguson unresponsive and being treated by medics.

The medics tried to resuscitate Ferguson but he never regained consciousness, and was pronounced death at the scene. Baltimore police spokeswoman Niki Fennoy said in a statement :

Once there, officers located 26-year-old Jaylon Ferguson, unresponsive, being treated by medics. Ferguson never regained consciousness and was pronounced dead on the scene by medics.

Fact #3 : Police Investigated His Death As Possible Drug Overdose

The Baltimore police stated that they did not suspect foul play in his death, and that there were no signs of trauma on his body.

However, they were investigating it as an “open questionable death“, and specifically looking into the possibility of a drug overdose, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

Jaylon Ferguson’s body was taken to the Baltimore medical examiner’s office early Wednesday morning, where an autopsy will be conducted to determine his cause of death.

We are not ruling anything out. We don’t determine cause of death, but we consider the possibility that it could be an overdose.

According to The Baltimore Banner, a friend who found Ferguson unresponsive told police at the scene that Ferguson told him earlier in the night that he was “Xanied up”, and an unidentified pink powder substance was found in a sock.

The friend also said that Ferguson had been going through a difficult time after the recent death of his grandmother, and a fire at his home in Owings Mills, and that he was suffering from depression.

Fact #4 : Jaylon Ferguson Was Likely Unvaccinated

Jaylon Ferguson is said to be unvaccinated against COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

While there is no official word on his vaccination status (due to NFL policy), here are the reasons why Ferguson is unlikely to be vaccinated :

  1. NFL does not require players to be vaccinated against COVID-19. It however requires players to get tested.
  2. Jaylon Ferguson tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 24, 2021, and missed the Ravens’ game against the Detroit Lions a few days later.
  3. Under NFL protocols, fully-vaccinated players who test positive can return within 5 days, as long as they are asymptomatic and produce two negative tests 24 hours apart.
  4. Under NFL protocols, unvaccinated players who test positive must quarantine for at least 10 days.
  5. Ferguson missed three games and only returned to practice on October 13, 2021 – 19 days after he tested positive for COVID-19.

The length of his absence strongly suggests that he was one of the few unvaccinated players on the Ravens’ roster.

Short of an official statement by the NFL or Ferguson’s family, this is about as good as it gets, when it comes to evidence whether Jaylon was vaccinated or not.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

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

Did Josh Gad’s Nephew, Marco, Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Josh Gad’s young nephew, Marco, die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Josh Gad’s Nephew, Marco, Died From Vaccine SADS!

After Josh Gad announced that his 20 year-old nephew, Marco, died in his sleep, people started claiming that he died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

S.A.D.S. Strikes Again: Josh Gad Nephew Dies Suddenly In His Sleep

Join us!!! Join us!!!!! Join us!!!!!!! Pro vax guy and Hollywood shill Josh gad doesn’t have the balls to tell you the vaccine killed his nephew…. Sick celebrities

@joshgad your nephew died from the poisonous injection that you all have taken. Wake up

No Evidence Josh Gad’s Nephew, Marco, Died From Vaccine SADS!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Marco’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown

According to a tweet and a prior Instagram post by Josh Gad, his nephew Marco died in his sleep on Friday, June 24, 2022.

Thank you all for your love. Our beloved nephew Marco passed away in his sleep at 20, his life cut far too short and our pain far too deep. Our family is trying to make sense of it all but your support has been incredible. ❤️❤️❤️

His cause of death is still unknown. Unknown does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury”. Unknown means that, at this time, NO ONE KNOWS what Marco died of.

It also means that anyone who claims that Marco died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.

It is currently unknown if an autopsy was performed on Marco, but we will only know his cause of death only through an autopsy report, or official confirmation from his family.

Fact #2 : Josh Gad Never Mentioned Vaccine As A Cause

Josh Gad posted several times about his nephew, showing just how much he was affected by his nephew’s death.

Yet, not once, in his many social media posts, did Josh mention Marco’s vaccination, or cause of death.

Today I write this with a broken heart. Our beloved nephew Marco has left us far too early. At 20 years old, he was full of possibly and promise.

To say he is gone far too soon does not do justice to the life force that he was. As his parents try to work this impossible pain, I am asking for all of you to send positive energy and love their way.

So anyone who claims that Marco died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

Fact #3 : Marco’s Vaccination Status Is Unknown

I should point out that no one knows if Josh Gad’s nephew, Marco, was even vaccinated against COVID-19.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim, there is no vaccine mandate in the United States.

Hence, Marco may well be unvaccinated against COVID-19, unlike a certain prominent antivaxxer

Fact #4 : Marco Didn’t Star In Frozen…

This is a really weird claim – a website called FactsWOW tried to hype up Marco’s death by claiming that Marco played the part of Marco in the movie, Frozen.

The problem with that claim? There is no character called Marco in the movie, Frozen! As for Josh Gad, he voiced Olaf the magical snowman…

It is unbelievable the lengths to which some people would go to milk a tragedy to go viral…

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

Even if Marco was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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

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

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up sudden, unknown deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Read more : Did Hundreds Of Athletes Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects?!

Fact #7 : There Are Thousands Of SADS Deaths Every Year

It is possible that Marco may have died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

But that does not mean SADS is caused by COVID-19 vaccines. That would be rather ludicrous as SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

Depeche Mode’s Andy Fletcher : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine!

Let this be the final word on Depeche Mode’s Andy Fletcher – his cause of death was not the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Claim : Andy Fletcher – Cause Of Death Was COVID-19 Vaccine!

People have been claiming that Depeche Mode’s founding member and keyboardist, Andy Fletcher (Andrew Fletcher, also known as Fletch) died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

All the vaccinated boomer celebrities are dying in their sleep. Ray Liotta, 67, dies in his sleep yesterday. Andy Fletcher, Depeche Mode, 60, died in his sleep today.

They sold us a dirty bag of goods and now we will just go to sleep and not wake up? #Vaccines #Covid

#AndyFletcher #vaccineinjuries #VaccineSideEffects

vaccines kill Rip My Heart Is broken

He sadly died of ‘natural causes’. Is that the new code for vaccine induced death? #AndyFletcher

[/su_note]

 

Depeche Mode’s Andy Fletcher : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths on the COVID-19 vaccine.

But we can now confirm that Andy Fletcher’s cause of death was not the COVID-19 vaccine!

On June 28, 2022, Depeche Mode announced that the official cause of death of their keyboardist Andy Fletcher was an aortic dissection.

A couple weeks ago we received the result from the medical examiners, which Andy’s family asked us to share with you now.

Andy suffered an aortic dissection while at home on May 26. So, even though it was far, far too soon, he passed naturally and without prolonged suffering.

There you have it – official confirmation, beyond doubt, that Andy Fletcher did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are other facts we know about Andy Fletcher last moments, and why his cause of death was not the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #1 : Andy Fletcher Died Of Natural Causes

On 26 May 2022 – the same day Ray Liotta died, Andy Fletcher suffered from an aortic dissection and died.

The circumstances behind his death was not revealed, but it was only said to be of “natural causes”, pending an official cause of death after an autopsy.

None of the official statements so far said that he died in his sleep, so claims that he is “yet another” healthy person to die in his/her sleep is not backed by any facts.

Fact #2 : Aortic Dissection Is Not Caused By Any Vaccine

The official cause of death of an aortic dissection – the tearing of the innermost layer of the aorta (largest artery in our body) – is one of the many natural causes of death.

An aortic dissection is more commonly seen in people with a history of high blood pressure, or those who have connective tissue disorders like Marfan syndrome or the Ehlers Danlos syndrome. It is also more common in people who have had heart surgery previously.

When an aortic dissection happens, the patient experiences a sudden onset of severe chest or back pain, with vomiting, sweating and he/she may even faint.

This is a medical emergency. If not treated quickly, it can lead to death from the compression of the heart (pericardial tamponade), or a complete rupture of the aorta.

Aortic dissection is certainly not caused by any vaccine, whether it is the COVID-19 vaccine or otherwise.

Credit : MSD Manuals

Fact #3 : Andy Fletcher’s Vaccination Status Is Unknown

Claims that Andy Fletcher died from the COVID-19 vaccine are not based on any evidence. In fact, we don’t actually know if Andy Fletcher was even vaccinated against COVID-19.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim – there is no vaccine mandate in the United Kingdom.

As of June 18, 2022, just under 75% of UK residents are vaccinated. That means approximately 1 in 4 people (25%) in the UK are partially vaccinated or completely unvaccinated.

Fact #4 : Andy Fletcher Lived In England, Not Canada

Many celebrity blogs, and anti-vaccination websites, claimed that Andy Fletcher was fully-vaccinated, with an Ontario vaccination card.

That’s absurd, because Andy Fletcher is a UK citizen living in England, not a Canadian citizen living in Ontario.

The truth is – they (intentionally?) confused Andrew Fletcher, the one and only Depeche Mode keyboardist residing in Brighton, East Sussex, England…. with Andrew Fletcher, a homeless man living in a Hamilton encampment in Ontario, Canada.

In this comparison I created, you can see how the two men are not even alike… other than the fact that they are both 60 year-old white males.

If they can mix these two men up, you have to wonder – what else did they get wrong?

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines were not only safe, they were effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Generally Last Only A Few Days

COVID-19 vaccine side effects are generally mild, and last only a few days.

In rare cases, the recipient may suffer from blood clots (AstraZeneca) or myocarditis (Pfizer), but they develop within days of receiving the vaccine, not months later.

If Andy Fletcher received the COVID-19 vaccine, he would have received all his doses last year. It is quite impossible for his death to be related to any COVID-19 vaccine he may have received many months earlier.

Did Sukma Athlete Stephanie Sim Die From Vaccine Stroke?!

Did 19 year-old Sukma athlete Stephanie Sim die from a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Stephanie Sim Died From Stroke Caused By COVID-19 Vaccine!

People are starting to claim that 19 year-old Sukma athlete Stephanie Sim Shu Ming died from a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Many are also sharing her news in anti-vaccination groups and websites, as “another example” of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) from the vaccines.

BAAM 💥endnu en, må af ‘ukendte årsager’ og helt ‘pludseligt’ forlade os blot 19 år gammel 😌

BAAM 💥another one, must for ‘unknown reasons’ and completely ‘suddenly’ leave us just 19 years old 😌

The Sarawak shooting community is saddened by the loss of Sukma shooter Stephanie Sim Shu Ming who passed away on Tuesday evening. Stephanie, 19, suffered #SuddenAdultDeathSyndrome #SuddenDeath

Rip… sudden deaths among young people r becoming common since mid of last year

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) ? #Vaccines

No Evidence Stephanie Sim Died From Stroke Caused By COVID Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Stephanie Sim Died From A Stroke

19 year-old Stephanie Sim Shu Ming suffered a stroke on Thursday, June 16, 2022, and went into a coma.

She was hospitalised at the Sarawak General Hospital, where she passed away on Sunday, June 19, 2022. She was buried at the Nirvana Memorial Park in Bau on Friday, June 24, 2022.

Sarawak State Youth, Sports and Entrepreneurship Minister Abdul Karim Hamzah confirmed that Stephanie’s cause of death was a stroke.

Stephanie Sim did not die from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

Fact #2 : There Are Thousands Of SADS Deaths Every Year

To be clear, Stephanie Sim died from a stroke, not Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

But I would like to point out that SADS was first documented in 1977, and occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year.

In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

Fact #3 : Stephanie Was Healthy + Well Earlier

There is no evidence that Stephanie was suffering from any vaccine adverse effects like myocarditis or VITT.

There would have been very noticeable symptoms like breathing difficulties, chest pain, bleeding tendencies, etc. and she wouldn’t be able to train properly.

Yet she trained with the Sarawak Sukma shooting squad just days ago – on Saturday, June 11, 2022.

Read more : Did Hundreds Of Athletes Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects?!

Fact #4 : Her Vaccination Status Is Unknown

It is unknown if Stephanie Sim was vaccinated against COVID-19. She did not publicly mention her vaccination status, and neither did her family.

Despite the high adult vaccination rate of some 84%, COVID-19 vaccination is not mandatory in Malaysia. A significant number of people in Malaysia remain unvaccinated.

While it is very likely she was vaccinated, we simply do not know if she received the COVID-19 vaccine.

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

If Stephanie Sim was vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her vaccine doses last year – at least half a year ago.

She cannot possibly be suffering 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.

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up sudden, unknown deaths to the vaccine, death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Infections Cause Myocarditis + Blood Clots Too!

What anti-vaccination activists won’t tell you is that COVID-19 infections also cause myocarditis and blood clots in the cerebral vein too.

They also won’t tell you that the risk of developing cerebral vein blood clots is 170X higher with a COVID-19 infection, than it is with the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Patient with COVID-19 207 +8,525%
AstraZeneca Vaccine 3.6 +50%

They also won’t tell you that the risk of developing myocarditis is hundreds of times higher with a COVID-19 infection, than with three doses of any COVID-19 vaccine!

3x Sinovac 1.5 Baseline -0.3x -0.4x

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

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

Did NBA Star Caleb Swanigan Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did 25 year-old former NBA star Caleb Swanigan die from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Caleb Swanigan Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Mere hours after news broke that former NBA and Purdue basketball star, Caleb Swanigan died, people started claiming that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

🎯🎯”Funny though… I read far more stories of these deaths than of young people dying from COVID. I haven’t seen a single story on deaths of kids from COVID. Have you?”
-Steve Kirsch

Caleb Swanigan: How can a 25-year-old die from natural causes?

He died of natural causes? Like the natural causes from getting the covid vaccine? Caleb Swanigan, former Purdue standout and first-round NBA draft pick, dead at 25

Sorry but 25-year-old athletes do not die of “natural causes”. What a lie. Another vexed young person drops dead.

Vaccine coverup, Pfizer and Moderna makes billions in profit, with no liability. #swanigan #purdue #VaccineInjured #vaccinesideeffects

No Evidence Caleb Swanigan Died From 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 the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Coroner Confirmed Swanigan Died Of Natural Causes

The Allen County Coroners Office had already finished its autopsy, and confirmed to multiple media sources that Caleb Swanigan died of natural causes at the Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The coroner’s office senior investigator Rebecca Maze also told them that a private doctor will be handling Swanigan’s death certificate.

There is no evidence Swanigan’s cause of death was COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Death from vaccine side effects can be proven. Vaccine-induced myocarditis, for example, has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis.

Fact #2 : Swanigan Struggled With Weight Issues

Caleb Swanigan had an troubled childhood, spending time in homeless shelters before being adopted by former Detroit Lions star turned sports agent, Roosevelt Barnes.

Swanigan struggled with his weight growing up, weighing 360 lbs (163 kg) as a 13 year-old; but with Barnes’ encouragement, he finished high school as a 6 ft 9 in tall basketball player with a weight of just 260 lbs (118 kg).

After leaving the NBA in Spring 2020, he had a stint with the Portland Trail Blazers, but opted out in the 2022 NBA Bubble due to personal reasons.

Since then, he put on a lot of weight which was noticeable when he was arrested for possession of 3.4 pounds (1.5 kg) of marijuana on December 23, 2022.

When Swanigan appeared for his May 17, 2021 court date, the former basketball player already weighed over 400 lbs (181 kg). So it is possible that his weight issues may have played a part in his early death.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Caleb Swanigan Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Caleb Swanigan was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

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

Unless we know for sure he was vaccinated, anyone who tells you he died from the vaccine is simply lying.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Generally Last Only A Few Days

COVID-19 vaccine side effects are generally mild, and last only a few days.

In rare cases, the recipient may suffer from blood clots (AstraZeneca) or myocarditis (Pfizer / Moderna), but they develop within days of receiving the vaccine, not months later.

If Swanigan received the COVID-19 vaccine, he would have received all his doses last year. It is quite impossible for his death to be related to any COVID-19 vaccine he may have received months earlier.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

Did Tom Mann’s Fiancee, Dani Hampson, Die From Vaccine?!

Did Dani Hampson – X Factor star Tom Mann’s fiancee, die from the COVID-19 vaccine on the day of their wedding?!

Take a look at the viral claim by tech millionaire Steve Kirsch, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Steve Kirsch : Dani Hampson Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Tech millionaire Steve Kirsch is back with yet another COVID-19 vaccine death claim, after suggesting that Gwen Casten died from the vaccine!

This time, he claims that Danielle “Dani” Hampson – the 34 year-old fiancee of X Factor star Tom Mann, and the mother of his son, died in her sleep from the COVID-19 vaccine!

His article is long-winded as usual, so let me just share with you part of his summary. But I recommend you just skip to the next section for the facts.

Here’s the latest victim. I wonder what the cause is? It only started happening after the vaccines rolled out, and it’s ONLY happening to vaccinated people. The CDC refuses to investigate.

 

There Is No Evidence Dani Hampson Died Of COVID-19 Vaccine!

As usual, Steve Kirsch jumps to conclusion that the COVID-19 vaccine killed Dani Hampson, based on ZERO EVIDENCE.

Despite writing such a long article, he offered NO EVIDENCE that Dani Hampson died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Did her fiancee, Tom Mann, say so? Nope!
  • Did Dani Hampson’s autopsy report say so? Nope!
  • Did anyone reveal Dani Hampson’s cause of death? Nope!

Now, I will go through the key conjectures he made, and show you why they are literally… bullshit.

Claim : 34 year old Danielle “Dani” Hampson died in her sleep.
Verdict : Unknown
Fact :
 No one, not even Tom Mann, said that Dani Hampson died in her sleep.
Fact : The Sun (which Steve Kirsch quoted) never said that Dani Hampson died in her sleep.
Fact : Steve Kirsch offered no evidence that Dani Hampson died in her sleep.
Fact : All we know is that she passed away in the early hours of their wedding day.
Opinion : It is possible that Danielle may have died in her sleep, but we do not know that for sure. Many bloggers claim that she died in a car accident (which is also unconfirmed). For certain, Steve Kirsch proffered no evidence she died in her sleep.

Claim : Dani Hampson was vaccinated.
Verdict : Unknown
Fact : Dani Hampson’s vaccination status is currently unknown.
Fact : Steve Kirsch offered no evidence that Dani Hampson was vaccinated against COVID-19.
Fact : If Dani Hampson was vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her vaccinations in 2021 – more than half a year ago.
Fact : Vaccine side effects occur in the first 2-3 days. Even adverse effects like myocarditis and VITT occur within days of receiving the vaccine.
Fact : Vaccine side effects have noticeable symptoms. If Dani had myocarditis or VITT, she would have noticed symptoms like chest pain, breathing difficulties, etc.

Read more : Vaccine Myocarditis Risk Less Than 1 In Million!

Claim : Only vaccinated people die suddenly in their sleep.
Verdict : False
Fact : Unexplained deaths in adults are common enough that there is a term for it – Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.
Fact : SADS was first noted in 1977 in Hmong community in the United States and Canada. In other words, people have been dying suddenly in their sleep long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!
Fact : SADS kills about 500 people in the United Kingdom every year, long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Claim : Danielle Hampson died from COVID-19 vaccine
Verdict : False
Fact : Dani Hampson’s cause of death is currently unknown. Unknown means it’s not yet known. It doesn’t mean she died from the vaccine.
Fact : Death from vaccine side effects can be proven. Vaccine-induced myocarditis, for example, has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis.
Opinion : Unless her death was proven to be due to COVID-19 vaccination, it would be false and wrong to make that claim.
Fact : The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Claim : Google search interest in “healthy young people dying” prove that it’s due to COVID-19 vaccines.
Verdict : False
Fact : Popularity of Google search terms only shows what people are interested in searching for, not actual incidences.
Fact :
 Just because many people searched for “healthy young people dying” around July 2020 does not mean that many healthy young people were dying in July 2020. Interest may have peaked at that time due to fake news circulating about “healthy young people dying” from vaccines.

Claim : Young people are dying in their sleep at an extraordinary rate.
Verdict : False
Fact :
 Steve Kirsch offered no evidence that there is an extraordinary increase in young people dying in their sleep.
Fact : Statistics for England and Wales from 2011 to 2020 showed NO INCREASE in children and teenagers dying, clearly demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of sudden unexplained deaths.

So far, I fact checked a few of his claims, and they were all proven FALSE.

Whatever Steve Kirsch writes about science and medicine should be considered FALSE, until proven otherwise.
