Did famous Indian singer Krishnakumar Kunnath (KK) die from a heart attack caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!
Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Krishnakumar Kunnath Died From Vaccine Side Effect!
Within hours of news breaking that famous Indian playback singer Krishnakumar Kunnath (KK) died after performing at a concert, people started claiming that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.
No Evidence Krishnakumar Kunnath Died From Vaccine Side Effect!
It's becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths on the COVID-19 vaccine.
So it's no surprise that they would immediately claim that KK (Krishnakumar Kunnath) died from the COVID-19 vaccine.
Here are the reasons why these claims are FAKE NEWS...
Fact #1 : KK Died Hours After Performing At Concert
On 31 May 2022, Krishnakumar Kunnath performed at a concert at the Nazrul Mancha auditorium, in South Kolkata, India.
After the show, he complained of feeling extremely cold, and returned to this hotel, where he was mobbed by fans who asked to take photos.
After obliging some of them, he refused the others and headed upstairs, where he reportedly stumbled and fell to the floor.
Attempts were made to revive him, but when they failed, he was rushed to the hospital, but the doctors pronounced him dead on arrival.
Fact #2 : Concert Was Overcrowded
Krishnakumar Kunnath was reportedly sweating profusely during the concert, although it is unknown if he was unwell at the time.
Many concertgoers complained that the air-conditioning was not working, and the heat was oppressive and there was a lack of ventilation.
This was likely due to overcrowding at the auditorium, which was confirmed by staff at the Nazrul Manch auditorium where KK last performed :
Fact #3 : KK's Cause Of Death Was Cardiac Arrest
At this moment, there is no official cause of death. However, the preliminary findings of his post-mortem indicated that he died from a heart attack.
The Kolkata Police registered a case of unnatural death to investigate the cause of his death, and understand the circumstances that led to his demise.
Doctors at the Kolkata hospital where KK was taken to, said that they suspected "cardiac arrest" was the cause of his death.
However, a post mortem examination was conducted to ascertain his exact cause of death, and the final report will be available after 72 hours.
At no point in time or circumstance did any doctor, police officer or any member of KK's team or family suggest that his death was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.
The police have also said that there as no foul play behind KK's death, and told the news agency PTI that the initial report shows that he died from a heart attack (myocardial infarction).
The doctor who performed the autopsy also told PTI that he appeared to have a long-standing heart disease :
Fact #4 : KK's Vaccination Status Is Unknown
Currently, it is unknown if KK was vaccinated or not, against COVID-19. There is no COVID-19 vaccination mandate in India.
That said, India has a high vaccination rate with 81% of the eligible population fully-vaccinated, as of 25 May 2022.
So it is highly likely that KK was vaccinated, but we do not know that for sure.
Fact #5 : Most Indians Received Covishield
The vast majority (over 80%) of Indian citizens received the Covishield vaccine, which is a locally-produced AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
If KK was vaccinated, it is highly likely he received the Covishield / AstraZeneca vaccine. But again - this has yet to be confirmed.
Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause Heart Attack
Irrespective of which COVID-19 vaccine he received, it is important to note that no COVID-19 vaccine causes heart attacks.
The Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines cause cause myocarditis / pericarditis, but they are generally mild in nature and affect adolescents and young adults.
KK was 53 years old when he died. Even if took the mRNA vaccines, they would have posed no risk at his 50+ age group.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Heart Attacks
It is also important to point out that COVID-19 vaccines are only designed to help our body fight off severe disease, and prevent death from COVID-19.
They will not prevent other causes of death, like heart attacks or cancer or stroke.
Fact #8 : VITT Risk Low For Males In 50+ Age Group
In rare cases, Covishield / AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine can cause a special type of side effect cause Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT), also known as Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS).
People affected by VITT or TTS will develop blood clots in the large veins of the brain / abdomen / lungs, together with low platelet counts.
This unique and rare side effect is seen mostly in women younger than 50 years old, and is exceedingly rare in males older than 50 years old - like KK.
Fact #9 : VITT Has Different Symptoms Than Heart Attack
VITT / TTS also presents with different symptoms than a heart attack, like a severe headache, blurred vision, speech difficulties, drowsiness, seizures, nausea and vomiting, leg pain, easy bleeding, etc.
From what has been reported on KK during and after his concert, up to the point he collapsed in his hotel, it does not appear that he was suffering from VITT / TTS.
In any case, KK's autopsy will be able to definitely confirm if he had VITT / TTS, or a heart attack.
Fact #10 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective
COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.
In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.
Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true - the vaccines were not only safe, they were effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.
Fact #11 : Vaccine Side Effects Generally Last Only A Few Days
COVID-19 vaccine side effects are generally mild, and last only a few days.
In rare cases, the recipient may suffer from blood clots (AstraZeneca) or myocarditis (Pfizer), but they develop within days of receiving the vaccine, not months later.
If KK received the COVID-19 vaccine, he would have received all his doses last year. It is quite impossible for KK's death to be related to any COVID-19 vaccine he may have received many months earlier.
Fact #12 : 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.
