The fact checkers say it is just a fluke. None of the incidents were vaccine related. One player may have had COVID before. One player wasn’t vaccinated. So nothing at all to see here. Move along.
I’ve been waiting for the explanation for the 60X increase in rate of players dropping on the sports field.
Here it is from Twitter: “In many of the cases, the athlete in question collapsed due to causes such as dehydration and overheating.”
Of course! That explains it! Good old winter dehydration and overheating problems. Happens every time it gets cold! If only they could invent something that would keep athletes hydrated!
As you can see, the fact checkers didn’t look at a single autopsy report, but they assure us there is absolutely NOTHING to worry about. These athletes couldn’t possibly have been affected by the vaccine (just ignore all the reports in VAERS too).
For example, from PolitiFact:
The first person named, Italian soccer player Giuseppe Perrino, died of a heart attack June 2 while playing in a soccer game honoring his brother who had died of a heart attack while cycling in 2018. A headline on a news story about Perrino’s death reads, “Heart attack kills Giuseppe Perrino like brother Rocco.” Stories about his death do not mention COVID-19 vaccination.
See? Because the stories about his death didn’t mention the vaccine, he could not possibly have died from the vaccine. You can bank on this because PolitiFact says so.
