Claim : Charlbi Dean Kriek Died From Vaccine SADS!
Almost immediately after news broke that Charlbi Dean Kriek died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that the model and actress died from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).
Here are just some examples circulating on social media :
Fact : Charlbi Dean Kriek Did NOT Die From Vaccine SADS!
It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.
Fact #1 : Charlbi Dean Died Within A Day
Charlbi Dean Kriek, a 32-year old model and actress from South Africa – passed away on Monday, August 29, 2022, at a New York City hospital.
Her representatives confirmed her death on Tuesday, saying that , Charlbi Dean had been unwell and was being treated for an “unexpected, sudden illness” when she passed away.
On Wednesday, August 31, 2022, her brother – Alex Jacobs Kriek explained to Rolling Stone that Charlbi Dean died from a lung infection that may have been complicated by the loss of her spleen from an earlier accident.
According to Jacobs, Charlbi experienced some “minor” symptoms that concerned her enough that she asked her fiancé, Luke Chase Volker, to take her to the emergency room. She then died in a matter of hours – on the same day.
Her boxing trainer, Gary Stark Jr, shared that she sparred with him just three days before she died. At that time, she appeared to be in good physical health.
However, on the day she died, she cancelled her boxing lesson at the last minute. This confirms what her brother said – she did not die suddenly, but suffered some kind of illness on the day she died.
Fact #2 : Charlbi Dean’s Cause Of Death Was Sepsis
Her brother was told that she likely died from a viral infection in her lungs, but her cause of death would be confirmed by an autopsy.
On Thursday, December 22, 2022, the New York City Medical Examiner officially revealed the cause of death for the Triangle of Sadness actress.
After conducting an autopsy on Charbli Dean, the medical examiner listed her cause of death as “bacterial sepsis“, that was “a complication from asplenia” caused by “remote blunt trauma to her torso“. Her death was ruled an accident.
The bacterial sepsis that killed Charlbi Dean was confirmed to be caused by a Gram-negative bacteria known as Capnocytophaga, which are commonly found in the mouths of humans and other mammals like cats and dogs.
Capnocytophaga bacteria generally do not pose any danger to people, but can cause illness, including sepsis, in immunocompromised people – like Charlbi Dean who lacks a spleen, or people on certain medications or have an autoimmune disease.
Fact #3 : She Had Her Spleen Removed Earlier
The autopsy results and coroner findings confirm what her brother, Alex Jacobs Kriek revealed earlier – Charlbi Dean had her spleen removed in 2009, after a “very, very bad car accident” that left her with a broken back and ribs.
Fact #4 : Charlbi Dean Kriek Was Likely Vaccinated
While there is no direct evidence that Charlbi Dean Kriek was vaccinated against COVID-19, she was residing in New York City when she fell sick and passed away.
The United States currently requires non-residents to be fully-vaccinated to travel to the US. While it is possible to travel to the United States with a vaccine exemption, it is more than likely that Charlbi Dean was fully-vaccinated.
Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Charlbi Dean was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received all of her doses many months ago.
She cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.
Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.
The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.
Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.
Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven
If Charlbi Dean died from any vaccine side effects, they would have been picked up in the autopsy.
Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.
Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.
Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.
Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective
COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.
In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.
Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.
Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!
Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False
This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.
So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is merely the latest dozen claims that have been proven false!
