Dead by Daylight

Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught and killed.

Survivors play in third-person and have the advantage of better situational awareness. The Killer plays in first-person and is more focused on their prey.

The Survivors’ goal in each encounter is to escape the Killing Ground without getting caught by the Killer – something that sounds easier than it is, especially when the environment changes every time you play.

Survive Together… Or Not – Survivors can either cooperate with the others or be selfish. Your chance of survival will vary depending on whether you work together as a team or if you go at it alone. Will you be able to outwit the Killer and escape their Killing Ground?

Where Am I? – Each level is procedurally generated, so you’ll never know what to expect. Random spawn points mean you will never feel safe as the world and its danger change every time you play.

A Feast for Killers – Dead by Daylight draws from all corners of the horror world. As a Killer you can play as anything from a powerful Slasher to terrifying paranormal entities. Familiarize yourself with your Killing Grounds and master each Killer’s unique power to be able to hunt, catch and sacrifice your victims.

Deeper and Deeper – Each Killer and Survivor has their own deep progression system and plenty of unlockables that can be customized to fit your own personal strategy. Experience, skills and understanding of the environment are key to being able to hunt or outwit the Killer.

Real People, Real Fear – The procedural levels and real human reactions to pure horror makes each game session an unexpected scenario. You will never be able to tell how it’s going to turn out. Ambience, music, and chilling environments combine into a terrifying experience. With enough time, you might even discover what’s hiding in the fog.

Fact Check : Omicron Variant Detected In Perak?!

Did the Malaysia Health Ministry just detect the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in Perak?

Take a look at the viral video + message, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Omicron Variant Detected In Perak!

People are sharing this video of an Astro Awani news report (in Bahasa Malaysia) together with a message claiming that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 was detected in Perak.

Watch the video and LISTEN carefully. And then head to the next section for the facts!

Omicron virus detected in Perak. Be careful everyone

First South African variant detected in Perak

[/su_note]

 

Truth : Omicron Variant Not Detected In Perak Or Malaysia!

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

Fact #1 : B.1.351 Is Beta Variant, Not Omicron

The fake news creator used an old Astro Awani news report that refers to the South African variant – B.1.351.

B.1.351 is the Beta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, NOT the Omicron variant (B.1.1.529).

Fact #2 : Omicron Not Detected In Malaysia Yet

On 29 November 2021, the Health Director-General Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah labelled the claim as false.

He also said that no cases of the Omicron variant has yet been detected in Malaysia.

“Not true. No cases been detected yet in Malaysia.” he said.

Fact #3 : KKM Confirms It Is Fake News

Despite being told that it’s fake news, it looks like people still believe that there are Omicron variant cases in Perak.

So KKM issued a formal notice confirming that the viral message and video are FAKE NEWS. Here is our English translation :

The Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) denies the authenticity of the viral message that claims that the Omicron variant which is the latest COVID-19 variant with 32 spike protein mutations which is twice as many as the Delta variant was detected in the state of Perak.

KKM explains that no case of Omicron variant of COVID-19 has been detected in Malaysia at this moment.

The public is advised to stop spreading information from unverified sources that can create worry and distress in society, and instead refer to the official KKM social media for genuine information.

Please help us FIGHT FAKE NEWS! Share this fact check with your family and friends!

Fact Check : Sara On Her Mother’s Death From Vaccine AEFI

A lady called Sara claimed in a viral video that her mother’s death was caused by her COVID-19 vaccine!

I will examine her claims one by one, and show you what the FACTS really are!

 

Sara’s Claim : My Mother’s Death Was Due To Vaccine AEFI

Malaysia’s Freedom Movement posted a video called “AEFI Victim #1 : Sara’s Story on Facebook” on 19 October 2021, in which a woman called Sara claimed that her mother’s death was due to vaccine AEFI.

People shared it on WhatsApp, and even the “Lizard Man” David Icke posted an article about her story.

In case you have not seen it yet, here’s the video.

 

Truth : Sara’s Mother’s Death Was Not Due To Vaccine AEFI

When I watched the video, I immediately spotted many problems with Sara’s story. Here is a quick summary of the facts :

  1. Her mother had NO adverse effects to the two COVID-19 vaccine doses she received.
  2. Her mother got infected with COVID-19 before she was fully-vaccinated.
  3. Her mother obviously had breathing difficulties. She was on supplemental oxygen, and later a full-face oxygen mask.
  4. Wearing a face mask does not impede breathing, especially when her mother is being given oxygen.
  5. COVID-19 can cause myocarditis, with 16X higher risk than the general population.
  6. Dexamethasone reduces the risk of dying from COVID-19, but can cause bacterial infections, so antibiotics are also given.
  7. COVID-19 vaccines are not experimental because they cleared their Phase 3 trials, and have been approved by health authorities.
  8. VAERS and Yellow Card reports are unverified and open to fraud and abuse, because anyone from anywhere can submit anything they want to these systems.

For those who prefer more details, I will now go through her points and show you what the FACTS really are…

Fact #1 : Her Mother Had NO Adverse Effects To Both Vaccine Doses

In the video, Sara admitted that her mother had NO adverse effects to both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Yet she claimed that her mother’s death was due to the COVID-19 vaccine, a case of AEFI – Adverse Event Following Immunisation.

Getting COVID-19 after getting vaccinated is not AEFI. At most, it’s a vaccine breakthrough infection.

Read more : What You Need To Know About Vaccine Breakthrough!

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Vaccine Cannot Prevent Elderly People From Dying

Sara said that her mother told her that three fellow residents passed away within two weeks of their vaccinations.

That’s tragic, but did she expect the COVID-19 vaccine to somehow extend their lifespan?

COVID-19 vaccines are nothing more than self-defence classes for our immune system. They are not elixirs of youth, or magical potions. They cannot prevent elderly people from dying of natural causes.

The problem is Sara had NO PROOF that any death was even related to the vaccine. She just made the baseless claim to insinuate that the vaccine is dangerous.

The very fact that her own mother suffered NO adverse effect from both vaccine doses is PROOF that the vaccine is safe.

Fact #3 : Her Mother Caught COVID-19

Six days after her mother got her second dose, she tested positive for COVID-19. At that time, she was NOT fully-vaccinated.

Sara actually refused to let her mother be taken to the hospital for observation – a privilege that many COVID-19 patients were not accorded due to the lack of hospital beds.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Patients Can Deteriorate

Sara claimed that her mother’s condition deteriorated after she was admitted to the hospital, insinuating that the hospital staff did something to her.

The truth is COVID-19 patients who were admitted for observation at Stage 1, can deteriorate over time. It does not mean that those who are hospitalised will automatically get better.

There is no treatment for COVID-19, so hospitals can only provide supportive care. But that includes oxygen supplementation and ventilation, which can help prevent patients from dying.

Sara’s mother deteriorated rapidly, and she passed away 6 days after she was admitted to the hospital.

Fact #5 : Her Mother Was Breathless

Sara said that her mother denied having any fever, cough or breathing difficulties, from the day she was admitted until the day before she died.

However, as Sara made that claim, she also shared a picture of her mother receiving oxygen through a nasal cannula!

Whatever Sara may claim – her mother had breathing difficulties. Sara actually admitted knowing this at around 4:55 in the video.

Her mother was not lying – she had no breathing difficulties because she was receiving oxygen through the nasal cannula!

On the 6th day, Sara’s mother was put on a full face oxygen mask. Sara even admitted at 8:52 in the video that her mother was breathing heavily. She also said that her mother had an O2 saturation of 82%, even with the full face oxygen mask.

Fact #5 : Face Mask Did Not Impede Her Breathing

Sara said it broke her heart to see that her mother was wearing a face mask over her nasal cannula. She questioned why her mother had to wear a face mask if she had breathing difficulties.

It may seem obvious to us, but it has to be said – her mother is breathing oxygen from the nasal cannula, so it does not matter if she’s wearing a face mask.

She claimed that the doctor could not give her a straight answer. Well, that’s hard to believe, since we have been told time and time again that COVID-19 patients should wear face masks to prevent OTHER people from getting infected.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Can Cause Myocarditis

Sara makes a big drama about how the heart specialist, Dr. Wee, refused to be recorded during their phone conversation. She had her husband record the conversation anyway, despite being refused twice.

She claimed that Dr. Wee contradicted himself by saying that COVID-19 is mainly a respiratory disease and yet her mother has myocarditis.

The truth is viral infections like COVID-19 can cause myocarditis. In fact, COVID-19 patients are 16X more likely to develop myocarditis than the general population.

Fact #7 : Dexamethasone Saves COVID-19 Patient Lives

Dr. Wee told Sara that he administered dexamethasone to reduce the inflammation of her mother’s lungs.

Dexamethasone is the first drug to be shown to reduce deaths for COVID-19 patients who require respiratory support :

  • patients on ventilators : by one-third (33%)
  • patients receiving oxygen : by one-fifth (20%)

Sara’s mother was receiving oxygen through a nasal cannula, so administering dexamethasone would meet the proper standard of care.

Read more : Do NOT Self-Medicate Using Dexamethasone!

Fact #8 : Dexamethasone Can Induce Bacterial Pneumonia

Sara is correct that COVID-19 is caused by a virus, not bacteria. But the use of antibiotics is part of the COVID-19 standard of care.

Even though dexamethasone can save the lives of COVID-19 patients, it suppresses the immune system and can result in bacterial pneumonia.

Therefore, COVID-19 patients may be given antibiotics, either prophylactically to prevent such an infection, or as a treatment for a developing bacterial infection.

Fact #9 : Quick Research Cannot Beat Medical School

Sara said that she did “a quick research” and found out about the harmful effects of “these very potent drugs”.

I’ll not go to each claim she made, but I will point out that every drug has side effect, so pointing them out is irrelevant.

It is the doctor’s job to weigh the risk and benefit of each drug to decide WHEN to use them to treat their patients.

That’s why “a quick research” on the Internet cannot beat what doctors learn in years of medical school.

Fact #10 : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Not Experimental

In her police report against the Minister of Health and Director-General of Health, she claimed that the COVID-19 vaccine is still experimental and not approved by the FDA.

That’s TWO lies in a single sentence.

COVID-19 vaccines are no longer experimental, once they successfully cleared their Phase 3 trials and receive either an Emergency Use Authorisation or full FDA approval.

The Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine, for example, received full FDA approval on 23 August 2021. The other vaccines will similarly receive their FDA approval after sufficient follow-up.

Read more : What’s Different Between Full FDA Approval vs. EUA for Vaccines?

Fact #11 : VAERS + Yellow Card Reports Are UNVERIFIED

Sara also makes the same old anti-vaccination false claim about thousands of deaths and injuries being reported  in the VAERS and Yellow Card reports.

I have written multiple articles about this, which you can read below.

Here is a quick summary – the reports are UNVERIFIED and open to fraud and abuse. ANYONE from ANYWHERE can submit a report claiming ANYTHING they want.

As I have demonstrated before, you can report a death from any COVID-19 vaccine even if you did not receive the vaccine. Heck, you can even report a COVID-19 vaccine death even if you are not living in the US / UK!

Was Nevada Governor Assaulted Because He’s A Black Man?

Was the Governor of Nevada assaulted by security officers who didn’t recognise him, because he’s a black man?

Take a look at the shocking video, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Nevada Governor Was Assaulted Because He’s A Black Man!

These messages have gone viral on WhatsApp, together with a video showing security officers wrestling a man to the ground, almost taking down a metal detector in the process.

The Governor of Nevada USA, an African-American going to a meeting was not recognized by security and was treated like a real black and they nearly killed him

حاكم ولاية نيفادا رجل اسود ذهب الي اجتماع لم يتعرف عليه الأمن والنتيجة

The Governor of Nevada, USA, an African-American going to a meeting, was not recognised by security. They manhandled him like a criminal.

In the video, you can hear the man recording the video shouting, “That’s your Lieutenant Governor! What are you doing? What are you doing? What are you doing? That’s your Lieutenant Governor!

The man then continues, “You guys are gone! You guys are gone!

 

Truth : Nevada Governor / Lt. Governor Was NOT Assaulted At All!

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

Fact #1 : That’s Not Nevada Governor Or Lieutenant Governor

The man in the video is neither the Governor of Nevada, nor its Lieutenant Governor.

The current Governor of Nevada is Steve Sisolak, while the Lieutenant Governor of Nevada is Kate Marshall.

They are both Caucasians, and from the Democratic Party.

Fact #2 : Man Wrestled To The Ground Is Mack Miller

The man who was filmed being wrestled to the ground is Mack Miller, a convicted US Army deserter and a Republican who is running to replace Kate Marshall as Lieutenant Governor of Nevada.

Irrespective of what the man on the video was shouting, he has NOT been elected Lieutenant Governor of Nevada. He is merely one of several people running for the job.

It was not that the security officers did not recognise him. He was simply not an elected Nevada official.

Fact #3 : Mack Miller Was Removed For Being Disruptive

The video was recorded at the Clark County Commission Office’s meeting, where the committee voted in a 5-2 decision to declare the spread of COVID-19 misinformation “a public health crisis”.

Protestors at the meeting claimed that the decision violated their First Amendment rights, and Miller was ejected after apparently joining the protest which broke out into a fight between demonstrators and the security officers.

Being an African American was not the reason why he was forcibly removed. It should be noted that one of the two security officers carrying him out is African American.

Fact #4 : It Was An Accident

The claim of assault is not legitimate. The video clearly shows Mack Miller jumping backwards as the two security officers forced him out.

When the two security officers hit the metal detector, it almost fell. That’s when Miller fell backwards – when the two security guards lost their grip on him, as they tried to hold the metal detector up.

It was not assault. It was merely an accident.

What Did Pfizer Scientist Nick Karl Expose To Project Veritas?

Did Pfizer scientist Nick Karl admit to Project Veritas that natural immunity is better than vaccination?

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

 

Project Veritas : Pfizer Scientist Nick Karl Says Natural Immunity Better Than Vaccination!

On 4 October 2021, Project Veritas released a video of Pfizer scientist, Nick Karl, saying that natural immunity is better than vaccination.

They claim to have exposed the truth that natural immunity is equal, if not better than, the vaccine.

[NEW YORK – Oct. 4, 2021] Project Veritas released the fourth video in its COVID vaccine investigative series today which exposed three Pfizer officials saying that antibodies lead to equal, if not better, protection against the virus compared to the vaccine.

Nick Karl, a scientist who is directly involved in the production of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine, said that natural immunity is more effective than the very vaccine he works on, and Pfizer produces.

“When somebody is naturally immune — like they got COVID — they probably have more antibodies against the virus…When you actually get the virus, you’re going to start producing antibodies against multiple pieces of the virus … So, your antibodies are probably better at that point than the [COVID] vaccination,” Karl said. Notwithstanding, Karl still believes that vaccine mandates are positive for society.

 

Truth : Project Veritas Video Of Nick Karl Doesn’t Change Facts

This Project Veritas video is no different from their past videos – misinformation based on heavily-edited videos that are designed to mislead you.

While the video may look convincing, it doesn’t change the facts that vaccination is far superior to natural immunity, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Project Veritas Videos Are Always Misleading

It is a hallmark of Project Veritas videos that they are secretly recorded, and then heavily edited to cast a misleading angle in the story, or to push misinformation. In other words – propaganda.

You can watch the video they have been sharing, which we added a Misleading overlay to prevent abuse, to see for yourself.

You could find yourself agreeing with them that they “exposed” Nick Karl, but I will show you why it’s just a sleight of hand and why the video is not only misleading, it doesn’t change anything.

Fact #2 : The Project Veritas Video Was Heavily Edited

The viral video shows Nick Karl (Nicholas Karl) dining with a lady (from Project Veritas) in a social setting, saying :

When somebody is naturally immune, like, they got COVID, they probably have better, like, not better, but more antibodies against the virus.

So, your antibodies are probably better at that point than the vaccination.

Wow, that sounds like an admission that natural immunity is better than vaccination, doesn’t it?

However, Project Veritas edited this part out of the original Nick Karl video :

Because what the vaccine is – is, like I said, that protein – that’s just on the outside. So it’s just one antibody against one specific part of the virus.

When you actually get the virus, you’re going to start producing antibodies against, like, multiple pieces of virus and not only just like that outside portion, like the inside portion, the actual virus.

So you have to ask yourself – what else did Project Veritas edit out of the full Nick Karl video?

No one knows because Project Veritas did not release the full, unedited video.

Fact #3 : Nothing Nick Said Are Secrets

At the end of the video, Project Veritas cuts to Nick saying, “I specifically have, like… Oh God, I signed NDAs against this.

Sounds incriminating, but we don’t actually know what he’s referring to because … Project Veritas heavily-edited the video and removed all context!

But what may not seem obvious at first glance is this – whatever he said in that video was not exactly correct, and was really not a secret. It was just basic virology and vaccine science, so why would he need to sign an NDA?

Could it be possible he wanted to impress the lady and cooked up that NDA story to make him sound more important? Who knows? Because Project Veritas edited out all context!

Fact #4 : Antibodies Are Produced Against EXTERNAL Virus Surfaces

Nick Karl was only partly correct in his explanation in that video.

When the immune system recognises the SARS-CoV-2 virus as foreign, it produces antibodies that attach to the virus surface, blocking it from infecting cells, and flagging it for macrophages to eat and destroy (phagocytosis).

Because the immune system can only see the EXTERNAL virus surfaces, it only produces antibodies against the EXTERNAL virus surfaces.

Your immune system doesn’t have x-ray vision, and thus cannot produce antibodies against the internal part of the virus – its RNA. Even if it could, the antibodies cannot penetrate the virus to attach to the RNA.

Fact #5 : More Antibodies Doesn’t Mean Better Immunity

Nick Karl is correct that your immune system will produce more antibodies because the SARS-CoV-2 virus offers a “complete” range of surfaces for different antibodies to be designed and produced.

However, having a wide range of antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 does not mean that the immunity is better. That’s why Nick actually said “not better, but more antibodies“.

In fact, inactivated virus vaccines like the Sinovac CoronaVac vaccine are LESS EFFECTIVE than mRNA vaccines, even though they offer the complete SARS-CoV-2 virus surface to the immune system.

Antibodies against envelope proteins, for example, may attach to the virus but not prevent it from infecting cells.

That’s why most COVID-19 vaccines target the spike protein that the virus uses to infect our cells. Their antibodies will attach to the spike proteins, physically blocking the virus from attaching to our cells.

We do not just want MORE antibodies, we want MORE antibodies of the RIGHT KIND.

Fact #6 : Nick Karl Does NOT Work With COVID-19 Vaccines

Project Veritas claimed that Nick is a scientist “who is directly involved in the production of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine“. That’s a lie that can be easily proven.

Nick Karl in the Project Veritas video is actually Nicholas Karl, a biochemist who works at Pfizer’s Pearl River R&D facility.

Not only is Pfizer Pearl River NOT involved in the production of the COVID-19 vaccine, Nick himself is also NOT involved in the production of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.

His (now deleted) LinkedIn profile shows that he is part of the Pfizer team developing the direct Luminex assay for COVID-19 and E. coli vaccines.

In other words, his work involves developing and qualifying a test to detect the quantity of antibodies that SARS-CoV-2 and E. coli vaccines produce.

Fact #7 : Natural Immunity Is NOT Guaranteed

Irrespective of what Nick Karl may have said, and all the videos that Project Veritas may produce, they will not change the fact that natural immunity to COVID-19 is NOT guaranteed.

On 10 May 2021, the WHO released a scientific brief on COVID-19 natural immunity, which points out that :

  • 90-99% of infected individuals develop neutralising antibodies within 2-4 weeks of the infection.
  • 1-10% of infected individuals do NOT develop neutralising antibodies at all.
  • Individuals with mild / asymptomatic infection produce LOWER antibodies than those with severe COVID-19.
  • Natural immunity appears to offer 80-90% protection against reinfection for up to 7 months, but only 50% for people over 65 years old.

Because reinfections (sometimes twice!) have been reported even in younger adults with natural immunity, the WHO and all major health authorities recommend that even people who survive COVID-19 should get vaccinated.

Fact #8 : Natural Immunity Isn’t Risk-Free

What Project Veritas does not mention is that for you to gain “natural immunity”, you must first put your life at risk by getting infected with COVID-19.

The risk of dying from COVID-19 ranges from 0.25% to 10%, depending on whether there is ready access to an ICU and a ventilator. And even if you do survive, you may have to live with the effects of long COVID.

Vaccines offer a safer way to attain immunity against COVID-19. They are essentially self-defence classes that teach our own immune system to identify and create antibodies against COVID-19.

Choosing to risk your life with a “natural” COVID-19 infection instead of a vaccine, is like refusing to undergo military training before going to battle.

Sure, you could survive your battle, but you will have a better chance if you prepare for it, don’t you think?

YouTube Anti-Vax Ban Problems : Abuse + Stupid AI

YouTube recently initiated a ban on anti-vax videos, and terminating accounts of anti-vaccine influencers.

Some people believe that it’s excessive censorship, but really – the bigger problems are abuse and stupid AI.

 

YouTube Anti-Vax Ban : What Is It?

After months of letting anti-vaccine influencers spread misinformation about COVID-19 vaccine and vaccination, YouTube finally cracked down.

On 29 September 2021, YouTube expanded their medical misinformation policies, removing thousands of videos and even terminating accounts of anti-vaccine influencers.

Specifically, content that falsely alleges that approved vaccines are dangerous and cause chronic health effects, claims that vaccines do not reduce transmission or contraction of disease, or contains misinformation on the substances contained in vaccines will be removed.

 

YouTube Anti-Vax Ban Problems : Abuse + Stupid AI

At that time, I celebrated their decision because YouTube has let these anti-vaccine influencers spread misinformation for far too long.

My friend, Ian, felt that it was excessive censorship – an opinion echoed by many on the Internet.

However, at that time, I told him that I was far more worried about abuse and their stupid AI. That proved to be prescient…

Just FOUR DAYS LATER, I was hit by a Community Guidelines Strike for a video designed to fight against medical misinformation on ivermectin and COVID-19.

Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our medical misinformation policy. We’ve removed the following content from YouTube:

Why Dr. Pierre Kory Got COVID-19 Even On FLCCC Ivermectin Prophylaxis!

YouTube does not allow content that spreads medical misinformation that contradicts local health authorities’ or the World Health Organization (WHO) medical information about COVID-19.

Your channel now has 1 strike. You won’t be able to do things like upload, post, or live stream for 1 week. A second strike will prevent you from publishing content for 2 weeks. Three strikes in the same 90 day period will result in your channel being permanently removed from YouTube.

When I uploaded video, I made sure it passed the YouTube check. But after about a dozen people viewed the video, it was taken down by YouTube.

Either YouTube’s AI algorithm flagged it or some people reported it as medical misinformation – which isn’t shocking. Trolls have been trying to take down our fact check videos, by abusing the YouTube reporting system.

But for the YouTube team to agree with them – that’s something special.

You can take a look at a low-resolution version of the video here, and see for yourself if it promotes medical misinformation.

 

YouTube Anti-Vax Ban Problems : Ignorant Appeal Team

It also appears that the YouTube Appeal Team is either ignorant or biased. They immediately rejected my appeal :

We reviewed your content carefully, and have confirmed that it violates our medical misinformation policy. We know this is probably disappointing news, but it’s our job to make sure that YouTube is a safe place for all.

The odd thing is – this isn’t a new video. It was an updated version of this older video, with more details to refute claims by ivermectin supporters.

I also added information on COVID-19 vaccines, sharing that they have all successfully passed their clinical trials, unlike ivermectin.

The updated video also makes a stronger call for people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

However, the YouTube appeal team still insists that this is medical misinformation… #SMH

 

This was what I feared – not censorship, but abuse and a stupid AI… and what looks like ignorance.

Mistakes by AI algorithms are a real problem. I have been hit by warnings for FACT CHECKING fake news. But it looks like ignorance is also a problem.

The YouTube appeal team does not seem to know how to differentiate between real medical misinformation and a fact check of medical misinformation.

So now we have been hit by a permanent strike for trying to help fight against misinformation. That does NOT bode well for YouTube’s “fight” against fake news…

Why Dr. Pierre Kory Got COVID-19 Despite Taking Ivermectin!

Dr. Pierre Kory and his daughter got infected with COVID-19, despite taking the FLCCC ivermectin prophylaxis protocol!

Watch our video, and find out WHY he got COVID-19 despite taking ivermectin!

 

Dr. Pierre Kory Gets COVID-19, Despite Taking Ivermectin!

Sometime in August 2021, Dr. Pierre Kory admitted in an FLCCC Zoom call that he got infected with COVID-19, several days after his daughter caught it.

Imagine that – the FLCCC cheerleader himself was infected with COVID-19, despite taking the I-MASK+ ivermectin prophylaxis he had been promoting for months!

That FLCCC session video was posted in several places (including YouTube), but quickly deleted soon after. It’s as if ivermectin proponents are trying to bury the video to avoid the public finding out that their ivermectin hero contracted COVID-19…

Thanks to the awesome detective work by Dr. Jickee, I managed to get my hands on the FLCCC video! To avoid the video being taken down, I created this mash-up with my own text commentary.

You will be able to see and hear Dr. Pierre Kory himself admit that he contracted COVID-19, despite telling the US Senate twice that “if you take it, you won’t get sick [with COVID-19]

 

 

Why Dr. Kory Got COVID-19 Despite Taking Ivermectin…

To be clear – I’m not ecstatic that Dr. Pierre Kory was infected by COVID-19. It only seemed inevitable, based on current evidence.

But I am certainly enthusiastic about the teaching moment here, even if it’s only anecdotal – the value of which Dr. Kory ironically touts to be as valuable as RCTs… #eyeroll

Fact #1 : Dr. Pierre Kory Admitted He Contracted COVID-19

As the video above shows, Dr. Pierre Kory admitted that he contracted COVID-19, despite being on the FLCCC I-MASK+ ivermectin protocol.

Fact #2 : Dr. Pierre Kory Did Not Get Infected By COVID-19 Patient

We would have expected Dr. Kory to be infected while working on the “frontlines”, where the viral load is so high that the chances of a “breakthrough infection” is significant.

The truth is Dr. Pierre Kory resigned from his hospital – Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center sometime in January 2021, so he had no contact with COVID-19 patients.

Fact #3 : Dr. Pierre Kory Was Infected By His Daughter

As Dr. Kory explained in the video, he was actually infected by his daughter who got COVID-19 several days earlier.

This is an important point to note for two reasons :

  • the I-MASK ivermectin prophylaxis failed for his daughter as well, and
  • he got infected despite not being in a “dangerous frontline environment”.

Of course, we have to assume he took reasonable precautions after his daughter got infected, like wearing a face mask, keeping her isolated, and maintaining good hand hygiene.

If he did not, now that would be highly irresponsible, wouldn’t it? And hypocritical too, since the I-MASK+ protocol recommends wearing “a cloth, surgical, or N95 mask”.

Read more : The Right Way To Wear + Remove A Face Mask!

Fact #4 : Dr. Pierre Kory Was On I-MASK+ Protocol

As he shared in his video testimonial, Dr. Kory was on the original I-MASK+ protocol of 0.2 mg of ivermectin once a week.

He claimed that he was “probably Day 7” of his last ivermectin dose, but that’s his opinion which is, again… NOT backed by any evidence.

I should also point out that the I-MASK+ protocol that the Dr. Kory and the FLCCC have been advocating consists of many supplements and ivermectin, 5-6 pills of which are taken EVERY SINGLE DAY.

  • 1,000 to 3,000 IU of Vitamin D3
  • 2,000 mg of Vitamin C
  • 250 mg of Quercetin
  • 50 mg of Zinc
  • 6 mg of Melatonin

So it would be disingenuous for him to claim that he only got COVID-19 because he was on Day 7 of his ivermectin dose…

Unless the truth is – the other components of the I-MASK+ protocol are, well, USELESS against COVID-19?

Read more : Ivermectin + Supplements : Better Than COVID-19 Vaccines?

Fact #5 : Dr. Pierre Kory’s Daughter Was Infected Several Days Earlier

As Dr. Pierre Kory himself said, his daughter was infected several days earlier.

That actually refutes his claim that he was infected specifically on Day 7 of his ivermectin dose, because the SARS-CoV-2 virus does not wait around to infect people on a specific day.

The only way that would happen is if he took precautions around her except for the most vulnerable day – the day before his next dose of ivermectin.

It is far more likely that Dr. Pierre Kory got infected by his daughter days earlier. Due to the incubation period, he only started getting symptoms several days later.

You would have expected an experienced doctor like Dr. Kory to know that…

Read more : Delta Variant Can Infect In Seconds : How To Prevent That?

Fact #6 : Dr. Kory Admitted Ivermectin Not Working Against Delta Variant

Despite earlier claiming that ivermectin works on all COVID-19 variants just as well as the original SARS-CoV-2 virus, Dr. Pierre Kory himself admitted in the video above that ivermectin is failing to prevent infections from “new variants”.

In an earlier tweet, he even admitted that the Delta variant patients are “not showing responses to MATH+“, even saying that the FLCCC Alliance members are “demoralized and frightened“.

Did the FLCCC back the wrong horse, ivermectin? Will Ivermectin proponents now stop claiming that ivermectin works better than vaccines against the new variants?

Read more : Why Delta Variant Causes MORE Breakthrough Infections

Fact #7 : FLCCC Doubled Dose Of Ivermectin

Unfortunately, Dr. Pierre Kory and the FLCCC are doubling down on ivermectin… literally. They are now calling for the doubling of how much ivermectin to take :

  • prevention : 0.2 mg/kg of ivermectin TWICE a week, instead of once a week
  • early treatment : 0.4 mg/kg of ivermectin, instead of 0.2 mg/kg

However, even he admitted in the video above that this change is NOT backed by evidence, and is merely their opinion.

Goodness gracious… medical advice NOT backed by any real evidence.

Fact #8 : Ivermectin Has Half-Life Of Just 18 Hours

I honestly don’t see how the original or new FLCCC ivermectin protocol would work, since ivermectin has a plasma half-life of 18 hours according to Merck.

That means the ivermectin concentration in your blood reduces to HALF in 18 hours, and just a QUARTER in 36 hours.

Even taking ivermectin TWICE A WEEK makes little sense, since there would be little ivermectin left in the body by the end of the second day!

Fact #9 : Ivermectin Have Not Been Proven Effective Against COVID-19

As of 15 November 2021, ivermectin has not been proven to improve clinical outcomes or prevent transmission.

That is why the WHO and the vast majority of health authorities around the world DO NOT advocate using ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19.

Is it any wonder why Dr. Kory got infected with COVID-19 despite taking ivermectin? There never was any conclusive evidence that ivermectin could CLINICALLY prevent or cure COVID-19.

Read more : Latest Ivermectin COVID-19 Study : What Does It Really Say?

Fact #10 : FLCCC Ivermectin Protocol Is Not Cheap!

Antivaxxers claim that vaccines are being promoted for profit, but the truth is – there are MUCH LARGER PROFITS to be made through the FLCCC ivermectin protocol!

The FLCCC’s recommended I-MASK+ ivermectin protocol costs more than two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, after one month.

On top of that, their I-MASK+ ivermectin protocol requires you to take 5-6 pills every day for as long as the COVID-19 pandemic lasts, while most COVID-19 vaccines only require two doses.

Unscrupulous doctors are also charging exorbitant fees to prescribe ivermectin, while COVID-19 vaccines are generally offered for FREE in most countries!

Did 5 Teenagers Die After Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine?

Did five teenagers die after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?

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

 

Claim : 5 Teenagers Died From COVID-19 Vaccine, 2 In Hospital

On 28 September 2021, an anti-vaccine activist went viral on social media when she claimed in a video that :

  • two teenagers are currently experiencing serious adverse effects of the vaccine in Ipoh
  • five teenagers died from their COVID-19 vaccination in Perak, Sabah and an unspecified location.

She called for parents to report AEFI (Adverse Effects Following Immunisation) to the health authorities, as well as the PPIM and GPMC activist groups.

 

Truth : 5 Teenagers Did NOT Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

The anti-vaccine activist may come across as very passionate and convincing, but facts do matter.

As of 29 September, no teenagers died from COVID-19 vaccination in Malaysia.

Fact #1 : KKM Refuted Her Claims

The Malaysia Health Ministry fortunately moved very fast to fact check her claims, and confirmed on 29 September 2021 that four of the teenagers she mentioned did NOT die from COVID-19 vaccination.

They were not able to trace the 5th case. We will update this article when we know more.

Fact #2 : SMK Tasek Damai Students Were Not Even Vaccinated

The activist claimed that two students from the SMK Tasek Damai school in Ipoh, Perak, died after receiving their COVID-19 vaccination.

Sadly, two SMK Tasek Damai students died in recent weeks, but they never received their COVID-19 vaccination!

A 17 year-old girl, who was a Form 5 student at SMK Tasek Damai and a Type 1 Diabetes patient on insulin, was infected with COVID-19 and died on 18 August 2021, before the Teenage COVID-19 Vaccination Program began.

A 17 year-old boy, who was a Form 5 student at SMK Tasek Damai and a Congenital Heart disease patient, was brought to the Emergency Department for a serious infection. He was given respiratory and resuscitation assistance but passed away on 17 September 2021. He had not been given the COVID-19 vaccine. The cause of death was ‘Sepsis with Underlying Congenital Health Disease‘.

Fact #3 : No Teenager Died From COVID-19 Vaccination In Lahad Datu

The activist claimed that a teenager in Lahad Datu, Sabah, died after receiving the COVID-19 vaccination.

However, the Health Ministry said that no teenager died after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine in Lahad Datu.

Our investigation showed that NO DEATH involving teenagers who received the COVID-19 vaccination were reported in Lahad Datu.

Fact #4 : Two Teenagers Experienced AEFI In Ipoh

Two teenagers who are 16 and 18 years old from the same family experienced an adverse effect from the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine that they received.

They both experienced adverse effects of the COMIRNATY vaccine and were admitted to a private hospital in Ipoh.

The 16 year-old teenager was discharged from the hospital, while the 18 year-old teenager is still under treatment and observation at the hospital.

A check by the NPRA showed that they did not receive any report of the siblings’ adverse effect from the vaccine.

Recommended : Malaysia Approves COVID-19 Vaccine Injury Fund!

Fact #5 : Risk Of Myocarditis / Pericarditis Exists

Although KKM did not reveal what adverse effects the siblings in Ipoh experienced, it is likely to be myocarditis or pericarditis.

These are known AEFI of the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine in young males, with an approximate risk :

  • 6 cases for every 100,000 doses.
  • 1 case for every 17,400 doses

Parents whose children were vaccinated with the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine should monitor them for these symptoms :

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

The good news is that myocarditis and pericarditis are both treatable.

Now that you know the truth, please SHARE this fact check with your family and friends.

Antivaxxers don’t care about the truth, or even your lives. All they want to do is prevent you from protecting yourself and your loved ones using the COVID-19 vaccines.

The COVID-19 vaccines have been proven safe and effective through massive clinical trials.

Vaccinate yourself and your loved ones to protect them against COVID-19!

Did US Air Force Pilots Resign Over Vaccine Mandate?

Did US Air Force pilots and bomber crews resign and walk off their jobs over the COVID-19 vaccine mandate?

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

 

Claim : US Air Force Pilots Resigned Over Vaccine Mandate!

A video by a bodybuilder called Justin Y. O’Donnell, and an article by Real Raw News have gone viral on social media, claiming that US Air Force pilots and bomber crews walked off their jobs over the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

In his video, Justin claimed that “my dad just let me know” that the Secretary of Defense sent a text message at night to all active members of the military, threatening them with a court martial if they did not get a COVID-19 vaccination by 10 AM in the morning.

The Real Raw News article is very long, so just skip to the next section for the FACTS and the video!

Twenty-seven active-duty U.S. Air Force pilots have resigned their commissions over the unconstitutionality of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s mandate requiring all Armed Forces members to at once receive a Covid-19 vaccination, Real Raw News has learned.

The exodus began on August 27, with 12 pilots from the 1st Fighter Wing at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, submitting to their commanding officer letters of resignation only hours after they received a 4:00 a.m. text message instructing them to submit to mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations by 10:00 a.m. that same day. It’s unknown whether the pilots collaborated ahead of resigning, but all 12 resignations were handed in within a 90-minute period.

 

Truth : US Air Force Pilots Did NOT Quit Over Vaccine Mandate!

The truth is the whole story is fake news created by Real Raw News – a known fake news website, and here are the FACTS…

Fact #1 : Viral Video Was Based On Fake News

In his viral video monologue, Justin Y. O’Donnell claimed that his father told him the Secretary of Defense sent out that text message.

The truth is – the story was created by the notorious fake news website called Real Raw News.

We just don’t know whether Justin’s father told him the fake story, or he made that part up to make it sound more believable.

Fact #2 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a known fake news website, that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

The entire article – including the F-22 Raptor pilot quote – is FAKE.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter, claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

This disclaimer lets him keep creating fake news that will go viral, and generate him money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website.

Read more : Did US Marine Corp Reject Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination?

Fact #3 : USAF Announced Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination

The US Air Force announced mandatory COVID-19 vaccination on 3 September 2021, which required all Airmen and Guardians to be FULLY-VACCINATED against COVID-19 by :

  • Active duty personnel : November 2, 2021
  • Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve personnel : December 2, 2021

There was no need for a force-wide text message because the notice was officially issued earlier.

Fact #4 : Secretary Of Defense Did Not Send Any Text Message

Defense Department spokesman, Charlie Dietz, confirmed that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin never sent a text message to all active members of the military.

It is also not logical for him to only give active military personnel all over the world only a few hours to get vaccinated.

Fact #5 : You Cannot Just Quit The US Air Force

Whether you are on Active Duty, or in the Reserves or Air National Guard service, you cannot just quit and walk away from the US Air Force.

Literally walking off the job is considered going AWOL (Absence Without Leave) – a court martial offence under Article 86 of the US Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Fact #6 : No F-22 Pilot Quit Over COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

A spokesperson for Joint Base Langley-Eustis confirmed to Reuters that :

“To date, no pilots from the 1st Fighter Wing have resigned their commission due to the COVID-19 vaccination mandate”.

Fact #7 : No B-52 Crew Member Quit Over COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

A spokesperson for Barksdale Air Force Base told Reuters that the viral story was “completely false“.

vivo V1 Custom Imaging Chip : What You Need To Know!

vivo just unveiled their first self-designed V1 custom imaging chip, and here is what you need to know!

 

vivo V1 Custom Imaging Chip : Launched In Shenzhen!

On 2 September 2021, vivo unveiled their first self-designed V1 custom imaging chip, at a press event in Shenzhen, China.

The V1 Imaging Chip was developed by over 300 vivo engineers and imaging experts over 2 years, as part of vivo’s  four strategic tracks on imaging technology :

  • imaging system
  • operating system
  • industrial design
  • performance

 

vivo V1 Custom Imaging Chip : What You Need To Know!

According to Hu Baishan, vivo Executive Vice-President and COO, the V1 is a fully-customised integrated circuit chip that is designed to deliver leading-edge visual quality for both imaging and video applications.

The vivo V1 imaging chip will be used to optimise smartphone application scenarios like “viewfinder look and video recording“, according to Hu.

In these two leaked pictures, you can see how several vivo V1 chips sitting in their trays.

From what we understand, the vivo V1 custom imaging chip will first appear in the upcoming vivo X70 series of flagship smartphones.

Using a custom ISP (image signal processor) chip will allow vivo to offer faster processing and better image quality than what’s readily available through the integrated ISP offered by mobile SoCs.

vivo has already offered a sneak peek at how they will use their new custom imaging chip – paired with ZEISS Vario-Tessar lens in their X70 series smartphones!

Did Pfizer Buy Up All Production Facilities For Ivermectin?

Did Pfizer just buy up all production facilities for ivermectin, to increase prices or to destroy it?

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

 

Claim : Pfizer Just Bought Up All Production Facilities For Ivermectin!

People are sharing a video of Laura-Lynn & Friends show that was posted on 31 August 2021, with this message :

Breaking: Pfizer just bought all of the production facilities for Ivermectin…

Here is a short clip of Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson making that claim about 33 minutes into her Passport to Hell video.

And here is my transcript of what she said :

Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine are sold over-the-counter in Mexico and Costa Rica. Different places in the world – India, Uganda, Africa – they’ve been taking hydroxychloroquine for years, millions of them, decades, and they don’t have a high incidence of COVID-19.

I just heard today, I don’t know if any of you – you guys are so fast – cause I heard it right before I went to air, that Bill Gates has, no no no… it’s Pfizer, Pfizer has purchased the ivermectin organisation or the plants or you know where they create it, or something like that.

I just heard Pfizer has invested in that, uh huh (listening to her earpiece). So that’ll will be interesting – whether they jack the prices up on everything, or destroy it.

 

Truth : Pfizer Did NOT Buy Any Ivermectin Production Facility!

The truth is Pfizer did NOT buy any production facility for ivermectin.

Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson appears to have made up the story, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pfizer Does Not Make Ivermectin At All

First, let me just state it very clearly – Pfizer does not make ivermectin at all.

You can verify this by simply checking the full Pfizer product list.

Pfizer is also NOT making a copy of ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

Read more : Is Pfizer Making Copy Of Ivermectin To Treat COVID-19?

Fact #2 : Pfizer Did Not Buy Any Ivermectin Production Facility

Pfizer is a public-listed company, and would have to disclose any purchase of companies or assets like a factory / production facility to their shareholders.

If you take but 5 seconds to check their public press releases, you can see that Pfizer did not purchase any ivermectin production facility.

For example, Pfizer announced on 23 August 2021 that they purchased Trillium Therapeutics Inc. Just in case you are wondering, Trillium makes cancer treatments, not ivermectin.

Fact #3 : Pfizer Does Not Need To Buy Ivermectin Production Facility

If Pfizer decides to make ivermectin, they don’t need to buy any production facility.

Pfizer has more than 35 manufacturing facilities across 6 continents – most, if not all, of which are capable of churning out ivermectin if they so wish it.

Fact #4 : Hundreds Of Companies Make Ivermectin

Hundreds of pharmaceutical companies and compounding pharmacies manufacture ivermectin globally. India alone has 105 different brands of ivermectin!

It is therefore IMPOSSIBLE for even a big pharmaceutical company like Pfizer to buy up even a fraction of companies making ivermectin.

For Laura’s benefit – there is no such thing as an ivermectin organisation.

Fact #5 : Anyone Can Make Ivermectin

Even if they somehow buy over every single company currently manufacturing ivermectin, they cannot stop new companies from making it!

Ivermectin is an easy and cheap drug to make, and is patent-free. So virtually any small company, even a compounding pharmacy, can make it!

Fact #6 : Hydroxychloroquine Does Not Work Against COVID-19

Despite Laura’s bold claim – hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) has been proven NOT to work against COVID-19.

  • Prophylaxis : HCQ showed little to no effect in preventing COVID-19 in 6 trials with more than 6,000 participants
  • Treatment : HCQ did not reduce mortality or duration of mechanical ventilation in 30 trials with more than 10,000 COVID-19 patients.

The results were so clear-cut that the WHO stopped the hydroxychloroquine arm of the Solidarity Trial in June 2020.

Fact #7 : Ivermectin Not Proven To Work Against COVID-19

Ivermectin has been shown to work against COVID-19 in lab (in vitro) studies, but does NOT improve clinical outcomes or prevent transmission.

That is why the WHO and the vast majority of health authorities around the world DO NOT advocate using ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19.

Did Germany Put All COVID-19 Vaccines On Hold?

Did Germany just put all COVID-19 vaccines on hold, because they are dangerous and no longer recommended?

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

 

Claim : Germany Just Put All COVID-19 Vaccines On Hold!

This message has been circulating on WhatsApp, claiming that Germany just put all COVID-19 vaccines on hold b because they are dangerous and no longer recommended.

BREAKING NEWS!!

GERMANY HALTS ALL C19 VACCINES, SAYS THEY ARE UNSAFE AND NO LONGER RECOMMENDED!!

There has been a 2 week pause so they can reflect on the damages being caused to their people, NO ONE CAN GET IT and the vaxxine license has been put on pause!!

GO GERMANY!!

The message includes a link to a video of Stephan Kohn (Director of RKI), which claims :

⁣BREAKING
GERMANY HALTS ALL C19 VACCINES, SAYS THEY ARE UNSAFE AND NO LONGER RECOMMENDED!!

There has been a 2 week pause so they can reflect on the damages being caused to their people, NO ONE CAN GET IT and the vaxxine license has been put on pause!!

GO GERMANY!! – But the chessboards still at play… Germany has been rioting ALLOT PAST FEW MONTHS THIS WILL TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF UNTIL MORE ENFORCEMENTS COME.. To then put mandatory vaccines in place – WAKE UP

 

Truth : Germany Did NOT Put COVID-19 Vaccines On Hold!

Both the message and the video have gone viral on social media, and even WhatsApp and Telegram groups.

However, the truth is – Germany did NOT put COVID-19 vaccines on hold because they are dangerous or no longer recommended.

This is just a new example of COVID-19 fake news, and here are the FACTS…

Fact #1 : Germany Did Not Put COVID-19 Vaccines On Hold

The German government did not put COVID-19 vaccines on hold. Germany continues to administer COVID-19 vaccines.

In fact, Germany just achieved a new milestone – administering over 100 million doses, which Jens Spahn, the German Federal Minister of Health, announced on 25 August 2021 :

Another milestone : More than 100 million corona-vaccinations in in 6 months, that is one of the largest logistical achievements in our country’s history. This means that 64.4% (53.3 million) have been vaccinated at least once. 59.4% (49.4 million) have full protection. Thanks to everyone who helped!

I should point out that he announced this 3 days AFTER the Stephan Kohn video was released on Instagram.

So there is no doubt – Germany has not stopped vaccinating its citizens.

Fact #2 : Stephan Kohn Is Not Interim President Of Koch Institute

In this video, Stephan Kohn said that he was appointed as the Interim President of the Robert Koch Institute. That is not true.

Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. Lothar H. Wieler remains President of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), since he was appointed in 2015.

Fact #3 : Stephan Kohn Was Civil Servant In German Interior Ministry

Stephan Kohn was a senior civil servant in the KM4 section of the German Ministry of the Interior.

He came to prominence in May 2020, after penning an 86-page paper critical of Germany’s anti-pandemic measures.

After it was “leaked”, Stephan Kohn was suspended from his position. It is unknown if he remains in the German Ministry of the Interior.

Fact #4 : Video Is Not Real, Just Theatrics

The video was posted to the BasisCamp.live Instagram account on 22 August 2021, but it was not a genuine news broadcast.

It was theatrics – a “simulation” video created as part of the multi-day BasisCamp.live online event called “A Global Pandemic Exit Exercise“.

In that simulation, BasisCamp participants play-acted what they “would do” if they take over the German government. It’s even stated in the Instagram post (which I highlighted below) :

Breaking: New government changes course radically!

Stephan Kohn, the new RKI boss *, announces a moratorium against the vaccination and I states that there is no longer an epidemic situation. The vaccination should be suspended. Not possible? No, say experts from #science and #economy.

In the simulation game #BasisCamp, members of the #Corona Committee around lawyer Dr. Reiner #Fuellmich with scientists and members of the party #dieBasis for an alternative corona policy.

Here is my copy of the simulation video, featuring Stephan Kohn as the fake RKI Director (Robert Koch Institute President).

Fact #5 : die Basis Is A New German Political Party

die Basis – the informal name for Basisdemokratische Partei Deutschland (Basic Democratic Party of Germany) – is a new fringe German political party.

It features people like lawyer Reiner Fuellmich, conspiracy theorist Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, and naturopath Diana Osterhage, and of course, Stephan Kohn.

Established in June 2020 as an anti-lockdown, anti-vaccination party, die Basis only gained prominence after German actor Volker Bruch join the party.

Even so, it only has about 22,800 members (as of July 2021) and only one district seat. So it is simply impossible for die Basis to take over the German government.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Safe + Effective

More than 5 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have already been administered worldwide, as of 26 August 2021.

They have all been proven to be safe and effective in preventing hospitalisations and deaths in COVID-19 patients.

In countries where vaccination rates are high, hospitalisations and mortality rates have fallen even if the number of new cases has increased.

However, we are nowhere close to achieving herd immunity globally. Even the Germans have only fully-vaccinated less than 60% of their adult population.

So please stop believing in such fake news. Get vaccinated ASAP to protect yourself and your family against COVID-19!

Did Giant Tsunami Waves Hit Second Penang Bridge?

Did giant tsunami waves hit the second Penang bridge – the Sultan Abdul Muadzam Shah Bridge?

Find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2021-08-22 : Updated parts of the article, and the fact check video.

Originally posted @ 2020-12-02

 

Claim : Giant Tsunami Waves Hit Second Penang Bridge!

A video claiming to show the Second Penang Bridge getting hit by giant tsunami waves, is going viral on social media… again!

Giant tsunami waves hit Penang 2nd bridge at 6.00pm yesterday!

Dramatically, a person appeared to be swept away by a giant wave, and a motorcyclist quickly fled another giant wave!

Here is my video fact check video of two examples I found so far…

 

Truth : Tsunami Waves Did NOT Hit Second Penang Bridge!

This is yet another example of fake news spreading like COVID-19 on social media.

The video is genuine, but it does NOT show giant tsunami waves hitting the Second Penang Bridge.

Fact #1 : This Bridge Is Too Small To Be Second Penang Bridge

In the main span, the Second Penang Bridge has a height clearance of 30 metres for ships to pass under. The bulk of the bridge has a much lower 6 metre clearance.

The Second Penang Bridge is also very wide – between 150 and 250 metres, with 4 car lanes and 2 motorcycle lanes.

The bridge in the video appears to be much shorter, with a 4 metre clearance; and much narrower with just 2 lanes.

Fact #2 : No Report Of Any Tsunami Affecting Penang

There have been no earthquakes nearby, or reports of any tsunami affecting Penang.

The waves appear to be approximately 12-15 metres high, and would have been big news. Yet there is no mention of it in the mainstream media. Very sus, no?

Fact #3 : It Was An Old Video

This video went viral earlier in July 2020, when it was posted as evidence of a tsunami hitting a bridge in Alaska after an earthquake there. However, that was false as well.

The earliest we could find was a December 2017 tweet by a CNBC-AWAAZ anchor, Deepali Rana, who claimed that it was a video of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. That was also false!

Fact #4 : The Video Was Recorded On Minicoy Island

The video was recorded on 23 August 2017, showing giant waves hitting the Eastern Jetty at Minicoy Island (Maliku), in Lakshadweep, India.

It is a much smaller structure than the second Penang bridge, or the Bandar-Worli Sea Link bridge.

Here is a picture of the Eastern Embarkation Jetty, with a surfer for size comparison.

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021 : What To Expect?

Here is what you can expect Samsung to announce during Galaxy Unpacked 2021 :

No Galaxy Note On The Horizon

We would normally expect Samsung to introduce a new Galaxy Note design, but this appears to be off the table in 2021.

However, you can expect Samsung to introduce t he Galaxy S21 FE as an affordable option for the new normal.

More Wearables, Of Course!

Look out for more wearables like Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4 smartwatches, and Galaxy Buds 2 TWS earbuds.

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Synergistic Combo!

HUAWEI just introduced the MatePad 11 tablet and the MateBook D15 laptop, each offering new capabilities.

But take a look at what happens when you use them together!

 

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Quick Primer!

HUAWEI just introduced the MatePad 11 tablet and the MateBook D15 laptop, each offering new capabilities.

HUAWEI MatePad 11

Running on HarmonyOS 2, the MatePad 11 is the first HUAWEI tablet to feature a 10.95-inch FullView display with a 120 Hz refresh rate for a silky-smooth visual experience, and a DCI-P3 colour gamut for real-to-life colours!

Its display is also TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light-certified, and TÜV Rheinland Flicker-Free certified, guaranteeing you hours of comfortable viewing without eye fatigue.

The MatePad 11 comes with the 2nd Generation M-Pencil stylus, which boasts an almost imperceptible lag as low as 2 ms. It has 4,096 pressure levels and tilt sensitivity, giving you a natural writing and drawing experience.

The 2nd Generation M-Pencil also supports Double Tap to Switch tools, for convenient writing and drawing. If you make a mistake, just double tap the M-Pencil to instantly switch it to the eraser mode!

It also supports HUAWEI FreeScript that quickly converts your handwriting into beautiful text, as well as Instant Shape and Instant Table, to help you easily draw perfect shapes and tablets!

The MatePad 11 is also a multimedia powerhouse, with quad-channel large amplitude quad-speaker system, tuned by Harman Kardon.

It is further enhanced with Histen 7.0 for greater bass and a new sound field enhancement algorithm, giving you that immersive cinema-like audio experience when you watch movies!

The MatePad 11 tablet also comes with 4 microphones, to pick up your voice while eliminating background noise using its built-in noise reduction and echo cancellation technologies.

You also do not need to worry about its battery life – the HUAWEI MatePad 11 offers up to 12 hours of work productivity time or 1080p video playback on a single charge.

HUAWEI MateBook D15

The HUAWEI MateBook D15 is now powered by either the 10th or 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, in a superbly thin and light aluminium alloy chassis – just 16.9 mm thin and weighing only 1.56 kg.

It comes with a FullView Display, offering 87% screen-to-body ratio, thanks to its 5.3 mm narrow bezels at the top and sides.

The large 15.6-inch display has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and an anti-glare IPS panel that is TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Flicker-Free certified.

Despite its slim design, the MateBook 15 offers an impressive array of ports :

  • 1 x USB-C port
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 port
  • 2 x USB 2.0 ports
  • 1 x HDMI port
  • 1 x 3.5 mm audio port

 

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Synergistic Combo!

Both the HUAWEI MatePad 11 and MateBook 15 are not your average tablet or laptop. They both come with built-in distributed technology to harness the capabilities of other devices.

This distributed technology unleashes the synergistic potential that most people don’t realise, when the MatePad 11 and the MateBook D15 are used together!

When used together, they both can perform what HUAWEI calls Multi-screen Collaboration, with three modes :

Mirror Mode

The HUAWEI MateBook D15 display can be mirrored onto the MatePad 11 tablet, allowing it to be used as a digital drawing pad using the bundled 2nd Generation M-Pencil.

You can use the M-Pencil to write, draw or doodle on the MatePad 11 tablet, with the changes reflected on MateBook D15’s documents.

You can also use the mirror mode for collaborative discussions by separate groups – the same content can be viewed and changed on the tablet and PC by different people / groups at the same time.

Extend Mode

The HUAWEI MatePad 11 can serve as a secondary display for the MateBook D15 laptop, giving you more space to work with.

You can use tablet to load documents for reference, or browse for information or play videos while you work on the laptop.

Collaborate Mode

The built-in distributed technology allows you to easily transfer content between the MatePad 11 and the MateBook D15, without using a USB flash drive!

All you have to do is drag and drop the files you want – be they photos, videos, music or even documents – using the mouse. It’s that simple!

On top of that, you can use the keyboard and mouse between both devices using the Collaborate Mode!

 

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : Price + Deal!

HUAWEI is offering their new tablets and laptops at these launch prices :

  • MatePad 11 (128 GB) : RM1,999 (about US$473 / £342 / A$641 / S$643)

Fact Check : COVID-19 Vaccination ID Card For Malaysia!

Is Malaysia going to issue a physical vaccination ID card for those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19?

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

 

Claim : COVID-19 Vaccination ID Card For Malaysia

A video has been circulating on social media and WhatsApp, claiming to show physical COVID-19 vaccination ID cards that will be issued to those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The video shows that your vaccination certificate is printed on one side, with the type of vaccine you received will be printed on the reverse side.

 

JKJAV : No COVID-19 Vaccination ID Card For Malaysia!

The COVID-19 vaccination ID card in the video looks really cool, but it is NOT genuine.

There is NO official physical COVID-19 vaccination card in Malaysia!

On 23 July 2021, JKJAV – the Special Committee on COVID-19 Vaccine Supply – announced that :

  • there is no physical vaccination certificate, and
  • there is only the digital vaccination certificate in MySejahtera and a simple vaccination card.

Back in March 2021, Malaysia Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba showed off the My COVID-19 Vaccination Badge.

However, the My COVID-19 Vaccination Badge appears to be shelved. Besides, it looks completely different from the vaccination ID card in the video.

Read more : First Look At My COVID-19 Vaccination Badge!

It is possible that the video was recorded by a private company offering their card printing service to people who want to print a physical copy of their digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate.

However, we do NOT recommend that as the digital COVID-19 certificate contains personal data that you may not want people to have access to.

  • your full name
  • your MyKad / passport number
  • a QR code which currently has placeholder data (Scan Sample QR code), but could later be filled with sensitive information

In its digital form, it is protected by your smartphone’s encryption – you need to log in to access the digital certificate. Once printed out, that protection is lost.

Just in case you are worried about “losing” the certificate, JKJAV says that you will soon be able to print a physical copy of the digital certificate for safekeeping.

If you just can’t wait, here is a simple solution – take a screenshot of the digital certificate.

You Can Now Record Video Of Your COVID-19 Vaccination!

Let there be no more doubt – you now have the right to record a video of your own COVID-19 vaccination!

Here is the latest update on vaccine underdose / empty vaccination, and your right to record a video!

 

Why Record Video Of Your COVID-19 Vaccination?

Recently, there has been a spate of complaints about vaccine underdose or even empty vaccinations!

Some may be misunderstandings (reading LDV syringes wrongly, for example) or even fake news, several have been confirmed to be true.

Recommended : Vaccine Underdose : What Should You Watch Out For?

 

You Can Now Record Video Of Your COVID-19 Vaccination!

On 23 July 2021, National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, announced that you are ALLOWED to record a video of your own COVID-19 vaccination.

This is on top of the existing SOP to show you that the syringe contains the correct volume of vaccine, before it is injected.

You have my permission, and also permission from the Health Minister himself, in case there was orders not to allow (you to record a video). Now, vaccine recipients can record a video of their vaccine injections.

Go and film yourselves, and take a video of your vaccination, so you have hard proof, and we also have hard proof, that you received the proper dosage for your vaccination.

 

Don’t Just Record A Video During Your COVID-19 Vaccination

To avoid accidentally getting a partial dose of the vaccine or none at all, please make sure you follow these steps at the vaccination centre :

  1. Check the label of the vial or prepared syringe, to confirm the vaccine you are receiving. Here in Malaysia, that’s Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac.
  2. The doctor or nurse will show you the syringe, for you to verify that it has the correct volume.
Vaccines Dose Volume
Pfizer COMIRNATY 0.3 ml
AstraZeneca Vaxzevria 0.5 ml
Sinovac CoronaVac 0.5 ml

Please note that if a low dead volume (LDV) syringe is used, you should read the volume from the first ring of the plunger, not the top.

Recommended : How To Read The Volume Of LDV Syringe Correctly?

  1. Film a video of the vaccination process, taking care to record the injection itself.
  2. After receiving the injection, the doctor or nurse will show you the syringe, for you to confirm that it is empty.
  3. Before leaving the vaccination booth, go through the video to confirm that you received the dose.

If there is any discrepancy, you can address it with the doctor or nurse, or ask to see a supervisor.

If you have evidence that you received an empty injection, or a partial vaccine dose, but only noticed that after leaving the vaccination centre, do not worry.

Here in Malaysia, you can reach out to the ProtectHealth Corporation – a private entity created by Malaysia Health Ministry to manage the national COVID-19 vaccination programme.

  • Telephone : 03-8687-2525 / 2588
  • Email : vaksincovid@protecthealth.com.my

They will promptly address the issue – either giving you a top-up dose, or a new vaccine dose.

“You Wanna Kena Whacked?” Maskless Bully To Be Charged!

The maskless bully who threatened to “whack” people who asked him to put on a face mask will be charged in court!

Take a look at the two viral videos, and find out why this Covidiot will soon be charged in court!

 

Maskless Bully : “You Wanna Kena Whacked?”

In this viral video, a maskless bully wanted to buy food at this roadside stall, but became aggressive when confronted for not wearing his face mask.

He started cursing and threatening not just the stall owners, but also another customer in the video, “You wanna kena whacked?

The video naturally went viral on social media, and netizens soon identified him as Shyamalan Jaganathan, a 33-year old licensing consultant who once worked for the Echez Group.

Echez Group has since announced that Shyamalan has not worked with them since 2018, stating :

We want to express to you that this person does not work with us since 2018 and does not represent the values and principles of our company.

We have already taken the necessary measures so that he can no longer use our name in social networks.

Echez Group respects and promotes among its employees, collaborators, and associates the application of the Biosafety protocols required in each geography where we have presence.

When his MyKad and His LinkedIn profile became public, Shyamalan quickly deleted his LinkedIn account.

Unfortunately, that didn’t stop netizens from coming across and sharing a video of a previous encounter in which he was abusive to another gym user.

 

“You Wanna Kena Whacked” Maskless Bully To Be Charged!

The incident happened at Jalan Desa Bakti in Kuala Lumpur, at around 10:30 AM on 19 July 2021.

The stall owner’s daughter lodged a police report against Shyamalan a few hours after the incident.

The Brickfields police announced that they were investigating the matter under :

  • Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation
  • Regulation 17(1) of the Prevent and Control of Infectious Disease Regulations 2021 for breaking the Phase 1 SOP (not wearing a face mask)

On 20 July 2021, Deputy Brickfields OCPD Superintendent Basri Sagoni confirmed that they arrested Shyamalan near his house in Taman Desa Bakti at 8 PM last night.

On 21 July 2021, Brickfields District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Anuar Omar said that the police obtained a one-day remand extension, and he will be charged tomorrow (22 July 2021) for criminal intimidation and not following the COVID-19 SOP.

He could receive up to two years of prison and/or a fine for criminal intimidation, as well as a compound for violating the SOP.

 

Maskless Bully : Why He’s A Danger To Society

Shyalaman is just one of the few but very vocal people who refuse to abide by COVID-19 precautions, in particular – wearing a face mask in public.

If he has COVID-19, he can easily spread it to other people simply by standing next to them. When he walked up to the man in the video, he was more than just physically threatening the other customer.

This is a real concern as the Delta variant of COVID-19 is capable of infecting people in 5 to 15 seconds, if you do not wear a face mask.

That is why it is critical that everyone must wear a face mask in public, preferably double-masked, and put on a face shield or some kind of eyewear if possible.

You should maintain a physical distance of 2-3 metres from other people if you can. Please don’t be a Covidiot like Shyamalan.

And definitely GET VACCINATED against COVID-19.

CITF : Walk-In Vaccination Details To Be Announced LATER!

CITF just issued a statement stating that the walk-in vaccination details will be announced LATER.

Here is what you need to know!

 

Fake News : You Can Walk In For Vaccination From 1 August Onwards!

There are at least three viral messages circulating on WhatsApp, claiming that you can walk in and get vaccinated at any vaccination centre (PPV) from 1 August 2021 onwards.

I fact-checked that in my article – Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia From 1 August Onwards? earlier, so we know they are fake news.

 

CITF : Walk-In Vaccination Details To Be Announced LATER!

Unfortunately, many people refused to believe those messages are false, and continued to share the fake news.

This is partly because of this 8TV video of National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin.

So on 19 July 2021, the Malaysia COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) issued a statement to clear the air. Here is a summary :

  1. The walk-in initiative is only for those who are left out and have not received their vaccine appointments by 1 August 2021.
  2. Individuals in KL and Selangor who have already registered will be given their appointments very soon.
  3. Individuals who have not registered are encouraged to registered as soon as possible.
  4. Details of this programme will be announced later, as not all vaccination centres (PPVs) will be involved.

Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia From 1 August Onwards?

Can you walk in and get your COVID-19 vaccination at any vaccination centre in Malaysia from 1 August onwards?

Take a look at the viral messages, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia From 1 August Onwards?

Two messages have gone viral and are being shared on various WhatsApp groups.

They both claim that anyone who have not received their COVID-19 vaccine can walk in and get vaccinated at any PPV, from 1 August onwards.

Important information. Please share. From Aug 1 anyone who has not received their vaccine can walk into any PPVs for their vaccination

For those who has not gotten their Vac Appointment, for Sel/KL only. Beginning 1Aug, walk in any PPV, any age.
1. MIECC Mines – Sinovac
2. PWTC- AZ
3. Sunway Pyramid CC – Pfizer
4. Uitm Seksyen 7 – sinovac
5. Uitm Puncak Alam – Sinovac

They are sometimes shared with this video of National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, saying that anyone can walk in for their COVID-19 vaccination from 1 August onwards.

 

Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia : The Facts

The viral messages are not accurate, and here are the FACTS…

Fact #1 : Operation Surge Capacity Runs From 26 July – 1 August

On 16 July 2021, National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, announced Operation Surge Capacity.

This 5-day Operation Surge Capacity aims to give the adult population in KL and Selangor at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by 1 August 2021.

To vaccinate the remaining 1.3 million adult population in KL and Selangor, the CITF (COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force) will need to sustain 272,000 vaccinations per day.

Fact #2 : Walk-In Vaccination After Operation Surge Capacity

In a video that is often circulated with the viral message, Khairy Jamaluddin actually said that walk-in vaccination will only happen AFTER Operation Surge Capacity is completed.

So the actual date when people can walk-in and get their COVID-19 vaccination is predicated on the success of Operation Surge Capacity.

If Operation Surge Capacity is extended, then this option will likely be delayed.

Even if Operation Surge Capacity succeeds by 1 August, walk-in vaccination can only happen the next day – 2 August 2021.

So it’s best to WAIT for the official kick-off announcement, and not accept some random WhatsApp message at face value.

Fact #3 : Walk-In Vaccination Only In KL + Selangor

The first viral message also falsely suggests that anyone in Malaysia will be able to walk into any PPV to get vaccinated.

This walk-in vaccination option will only be available in KL and Selangor vaccination centres (PPVs) to “mop up anybody that has not received their first dose in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor”.

Fact #4 : Walk-In Vaccination Also For Undocumented

Surprisingly, undocumented people in Malaysia will also be allowed to walk into any PPV in KL and Selangor to get vaccinated.

This is very good news, as it is important that EVERYONE gets vaccinated, irrespective of their status in Malaysia.

Khairy Jamaluddin said, “This is so that we can ‘mop up’ anybody that has not received their first dose in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

Some people may not have been captured by the Statistics Department’s data, while there are those who are undocumented.

Fact #5 : Walk-In Vaccination Only For Adults

On 17 July 2021, CITF kicked off walk-in vaccinations for senior citizens aged 60 years and above in KL and Selangor.

When they expand the walk-in programme after Operation Surge Capacity, it will be restricted to adults – those who are 18 years and above.

So the second message is WRONG in claiming that anyone of “any age” can walk into a PPV to get vaccinated.

Read more : Walk-In Vaccination in KL + Selangor Kicks Off!

Fact #6 : Walk-In Vaccination Only For Those Without Appointments

Another fact not mentioned by the first message – only those who do NOT have a vaccine appointment yet, will be allowed to walk into a PPV in KL or Selangor.

Khairy Jamaluddin said, “Those who have already received their appointment dates are advised to stick to their appointments. Do not walk in.

Fact #7 : Sinovac Will Only Be Used For Dose 2

On 15 July 2021, Malaysia Health Minister, Adam Baba, announced that Sinovac will no longer be used for new vaccinations, and the remaining stock would be used to complete current vaccinations.

Adham Baba said, “About half of the 16 million have already been distributed, so the rest will be used to cover second doses. For those who have yet to be vaccinated, they will receive the Pfizer vaccine.

Hence, the second viral message with the list of vaccination centres offering Sinovac for walk-in vaccinations is FALSE.

Fact #8 : CITF Confirmed This Fact Check

On 19 July 2021, JKJAV issued a statement by the COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) addressing the viral messages :

  • the walk-in programme will be updated and announced LATER
  • not all vaccination centres (PPVs) will be open for walk-in vaccinations.

So there you have it – the definitive debunk of the two fake viral messages above – from JKJAV and CITF.

Can You Wear Slippers While Driving In Malaysia?

Can you wear slippers while driving a car in Malaysia? Here is what you need to know!

Updated @ 2021-07-17 : Added confirmation letter from JPJ

Originally posted @ 2021-07-15

 

Are Police Checking For Driving With Slippers In Malaysia?

A video went viral recently, showing a police officer stopping a man, and asking if he’s wearing slippers or shoes.

Many Malaysian netizens were shocked by video. Some speculated that the police are looking for a kick-back, while others said that it’s to check if people were going to work or having a joyride.

 

Can You Wear Slippers While Driving In Malaysia?

So can you wear slippers while driving in Malaysia?

That really depends on whether you are driving a personal vehicle, or a commercial vehicle.

Fact #1 : You Can Wear Slippers While Driving A Private Vehicle

There are no laws that forbid you from wearing slippers or sandals while driving a private vehicle.

However, wearing slippers or sandals while driving a commercial vehicle (like a lorry, bus or taxi) is an offence under the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act 1987.

The person who recorded the video was a taxi driver. That’s why the police officer let the car in front of him go, but stopped to question him.

Fact #2 : Commercial Vehicle Drivers Must Wear Appropriate Attire

Drivers of commercial vehicles do not just have to wear proper shoes while driving, they have to be properly attired.

Section 15(b) of the Road Traffic Rules 1959 requires drivers of commercial vehicles to be properly attired.

What that means is really ambiguous, but in the past has included wearing slippers or sandals while driving.

JPJ confirmed that it is mandatory for drivers of commercial and public vehicles to wear fully-closed shoes. Those who do not can be fined under the Road Transportation Act 1987.

Fact #3 : Driving With Slippers Is Dangerous

Even though it’s legal to drive a private vehicle with slippers or sandals, I highly advise you NOT to do that.

Driving with slippers or sandals have been shown to increase the risk of accidents through :

  • increasing the time it takes to work the pedals.
  • delay your reaction time.
  • reduce the amount of force on the pedals.
  • getting lodged under the pedals

Even if you don’t get a ticket for not wearing proper shoes while driving, you could end up in a bad accident.

Please stop wearing slippers while driving!

Fact #4 : Taking Off Your Slippers / Shoes Is Also Dangerous!

For those who like to drive barefoot, please don’t do that either!

Taking off your shoes or slippers before driving is a recipe for disaster, as they can get lodged under the pedals.

Imagine trying to pump the brake pedal with your shoe or slipper lodged under it.

If you really, REALLY must drive barefoot, please place your footwear in the passenger’s compartment.

Fact Check : Fake Police Raid On Penang Condo?

A woman live-streamed a police raid on her condominium in Penang, claiming that they could be robbers posing as fake police officers.

Her livestream went viral. Find out what really happened, and what the facts really are!

 

Viral Video Of Fake Police Raid On Penang Condo???

On 12 July 2021, a Penang lady live-streamed a police raid on her condominium on Logan Road, claiming that they could be robbers posing as fake police officers.

It didn’t help that they were all in plainclothes and it was very late at night – about 11 PM.

It also did not help that fake news have been circulating on WhatsApp, claiming that robbers pretending to be government officials using fake warrants to rob people.

She refused to let them in, and live-streamed the entire face-off on Facebook.

 

Truth : Police Raid On Penang Condo Was Genuine, Not Fake!

The truth is the police raid on the Penang condo was REAL, not fake. They were not robbers, but genuine police officers.

The Nilai district police issued a statement on 13 July 2021, clarifying the incident.

On 12 July 2021, police officers from the Nilai Commercial Crime department, acting on Op Pelican information, went to the condominium unit on Logan Road, in Penang.

Accompanied by two fellow officers from the Dato Keramat police station, they were looking for a man to assist in their investigation concerning a case of fraud.

According to Nilai district police chief, Mohd Fazley Ab Rahman, they introduced themselves and presented their police identity cards, but the lady refused to let them in.

The video only showed one of the plainclothes officer wearing a yellow PDRM vest showing what appears to be his MyKad, and not a police ID.

Later, two Penang police officers in uniform arrived at her unit to assure her that the men were not robbers posing as fake police officers.

She then let them into her unit, but they did not locate the man inside. No arrest or seizures was made that night.

MKN Now Allows Busking In Vaccination Centres (PPV)!

MKN amended their SOP for Phase 1 and Phase 2 states to allow busking in vaccination centres!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Busking : What Is It?

Busking is the act of performing in public places for gratuities – public donations.

This can be performed outdoors, or indoors, and is a popular form of public entertainment all over the world.

For example, here is Crash Metal – a busker showing off his juggling skills outside of ICC Sydney.

 

MKN Now Allows Busking In Vaccination Centres (PPV)!

Since the pandemic started, buskers have been blocked from performing, and this has caused a complete loss of livelihood for these street performers.

After all, they need to perform publicly to make a living – literally live hand-to-mouth from each performance.

In a surprise move, the MKN released updated SOPs for Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the COVID-19 Recovery Plan, in which the only change was to ALLOW indoor and outdoor busking at COVID-19 vaccination centres.

This will allow buskers the opportunity to perform publicly again, for a captive crowd (literally!)

If you see buskers at your vaccination centre, please show them some support! Just make sure you keep your distance and wear a face mask!

Again, please note that the new SOP only allows busking at vaccination centres – they are still not allowed in other public places.

Also, this only applies to Phase 1 and Phase 2 states, and DO NOT APPLY to EMCO areas.

MKN likely limited busking activities to vaccination centres where there are police and RELA volunteers who can control their physical distancing.

Even so, this is a great opportunity for buskers, and I wish them all the best. I really miss the Blues Hat band. These guys are AWESOME!

Dell UltraSharp Webcam (WB7022) : All You Need To Know!

Dell just introduced the UltraSharp Webcam (WB7022) for the new Work From Home normal!

Here is what you need to know about the new Dell WB7022 UltraSharp Webcam!

 

Dell UltraSharp Webcam (WB7022) : All You Need To Know!

More than 18 months into the COVID-19 pandemic, the Work From Home (WFH) normal appears to be here to stay, at least for now.

To ensure that those who need to remotely work have the best possible video conferencing webcam, Dell just introduced the UltraSharp Webcam.

With nine patent-pending technologies, the Dell UltraSharp Webcam offers 4K image quality, built-in AI tracking and other video conferencing features.

4K Webcam With World’s Best Image Quality

Dell claims that the UltraSharp Webcam offers the world’s best image quality, courtesy of the large 4K Sony STARVIS CMOS sensor and the multi-element lens that captures more light to deliver “crystal-clear video”.

It supports frame rates of 24 and 30 fps at the full 4K UHD resolution. It also supports the higher 60 fps frame rate, at the lower 1080p and 720p resolutions.

It’s not just about the hardware. It’s also about the software embedded into the UltraSharp Webcam.

Its Digital Overlap HDR capability lets the Dell UltraSharp Webcam preserve true-to-life colours and balance exposure.

Meanwhile, its 2D/3D video noise reduction capability eliminates grainy images, making you look good even in low light conditions.

AI Auto-Framing

The Dell UltraSharp Webcam has AI Auto-Framing capability built-in. This feature uses Artificial Intelligence to keep you focused and centred in the frame.

You don’t have to manually adjust the webcam. It will track your movements and shift the frame to keep you centered, even if you stand up!

5X Digital Zoom + Three Fields of View

The Dell UltraSharp Webcam supports up to 5X digital zoom, as well as three fields of view – 65°, 78° and 90°.

This allows you to fit multiple people in the same conference call, or focus exclusively on you in a crowded place.

Smart Security Features

The Dell UltraSharp Webcam supports Windows Hello, allowing you to sign-in quickly and securely usual facial recognition.

It also has Dell ExpressSign-in capability built-in, allowing Dell PCs to detect your presence as you approach and automatically log you out when you step away, offering you an extra level of security.

Finally, it comes with a magnetic privacy cover that securely snaps onto the lens, or the back of the webcam.

Webcam Mounting Solutions

The Dell UltraSharp Webcam comes with two mounts in the box :

  • a magnetic mount
  • a tripod adaptor

The magnetic mount makes it easy to attach to the top of any desktop or laptop monitor, without obscuring the display.

And if you need to mount it on a tripod, simply slide the webcam off the magnetic mount and slide it into the tripod adaptor!

How To Register Children For Vaccine In MySejahtera!

Find out how to register children aged 12 years and older for COVID-19 vaccine programme using the MySejahtera app!

 

How To Register Children For Vaccine In MySejahtera Video

On 15 June 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) announced that the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA) approved the use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in children 12 years and above.

With this approval, children aged 12 years and above will be able to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

MySejahtera has been updated to allow registration of children for the COVID-19 vaccine, so here is our video guide on how to do that!

 

How To Register Children For Vaccine In MySejahtera Guide

For those who prefer a step-by-step guide with pictures, here is our guide on registering your children for vaccine in MySejahtera :

  1. Make sure you update to MySejahtera 1.0.37 or later before you proceed.
  2. Open MySejahtera.
  3. Tap on the Close button on the upper right corner of the default Check-in screen.
  4. You should see the MySejahtera main screen, and it should show you a new COVID-19 Vaccination option.

  1. Tap on the COVID-19 Vaccination option and it will show you this information display.
  2. Tap on the second option – Add Vaccine Dependent.

  1. You will be shown a screen with your registered dependents.
  2. If you did not add any dependents yet, you can do so by tapping on the Add Vaccination Dependent option at the bottom.
    Otherwise, skip to Step 12.

  1. Key in your dependent’s details – Full name, Relationship with you, NRIC / Passport number, Age, Gender, Current Address and Post Code, and State.
  2. Check the details and tap Save when you are done.

  1. Your newly-added dependent will now appear in the list of dependents.

  1. Tap on the Add as vaccine dependent option of the dependent you wish to register.
  2. You will be asked to confirm that you have the authority to manage the vaccination process for your dependent.
    You are also asked to note that once this dependent is registered to your MySejahtera account, he/she cannot be registered for the COVID-19 vaccine programme with a different MySejahtera account.
  3. Tap on Yes, Proceed to proceed with the registration.

  1. You will be asked to verify your dependent’s name and MyKad / Passport number; as well as confirm that he/she is over 12 years old.
    Technically, it should state 12 years old and older, because the COVID-19 vaccine programme is open to those who are 12 years of age too.
  2. If you notice any mistake, tap Edit to change the name and IC / Passport number.
  3. Otherwise, tap the I confirm that my dependent is over 12 years old check box, and tap Submit.

  2. MySejahtera automatically uses your GPS location, so key the location manually if your child is not living together with you.
    Make sure you also key in the State and Postcode for your child’s current location.

  1. Please BE HONEST in this assessment. It will, after all, be verified by the Ministry of Health.
    When it comes to Question no. 2 – Do you have any comorbities? – that refers to any medical condition your child has.
    For your reference, this includes :
    • Diabetes mellitus
    • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
    • Heart disease
    • Asthma
    • Cancer
    • Chronic lung disease
    • Kidney disease

  2. If you made any mistake, you can tap on Remove vaccine dependent, and begin the process all over again, from Step 12.

Then all you have to do is wait for the Malaysia Ministry of Health to contact you when it is your child’s turn to be vaccinated against COVID-19!

Dropping Off + Parking!

If you need to drop off any dependents, or if you are taking a taxi / e-hailing ride, please head to Gate E.

If yon need to drop off any persons with disability (OKU), please head for the OKU Parking Zone, where a buggy service is available.

Free parking is available at :

  • Car Park B (for HCO A and C)
  • Car Park C (for HCO B and C)

If you are arriving by LRT, please enter through Gate A.

Where To Go?

Before you head to Bukit Jalil Stadium PPV, check your vaccine appointment in MySejahtera for your assigned HCO entrance.

Once you arrive at the Bukit Jalil Stadium PPV, look for the HCO signboards, and enter through your assigned HCO entrance.

At the first station, you will need to scan your MySejahtera to check-in, and check your body temperature. You will not be allowed in, if you are running a fever.

Then follow the signs and roped pathways to enter the stadium, where you will be seated in a waiting area.

Bukit Jalil Stadium is partially covered and is not air-conditioned in most parts. So make sure you bring an umbrella and a bottle of water.

Once it’s your turn, you will be asked to enter into the Registration Tent, where you will receive your consent forms and seated in a waiting area.

This is when you can fill in your consent forms. Just don’t sign them yet.

At the registration counter in Station 2, a volunteer will check your identification (MyKad or Passport) and register you.

If you have MySejahtera, you will be asked to scan the QR code to log that you have officially come in to be vaccinated.

Then you will head to Station 3, where a doctor will brief you on the COVID-19 vaccine, and you can ask your questions. This is also where you will sign the consent forms.

You will then move to the Vaccination Tent, where you will receive your COVID-19 vaccine.

The doctor / nurse administering the vaccine will show you the vial or vaccine label, so you know what vaccine you are receiving.

The doctor / nurse will also show you the syringe to confirm that it has the right amount of vaccine.

The empty syringe will also be shown to you after you receive your vaccination.

After vaccination, you will be asked to wait in a small holding area for 30 minutes. Then you will be called to the counter to submit your consent forms and receive your vaccination card.

If you are worried about any severe allergic reaction to the vaccine, you can sit a little while longer.

After that, you can leave the Bukit Jalil Stadium vaccination centre, and go home!

Don’t forget to take some pictures, and share with your friends and family on social media!

 

After Leaving Bukit Jalil PPV : Post-Vaccination Check List

After receiving your COVID-19 vaccination, you are FREE to do anything you want. There are NO RESTRICTIONS on your diet and daily life.

You can expect some mild side effects – these are signs of your immune system learning how to fight against COVID-19.

You can report any side effects you feel over the next few days in MySejahtera. If they persist, or get severe, please seek medical attention at the nearest government hospital.
