The year 2021 has seen a five-fold increase in the number of professional of FIFA athletes dying of cardiac arrest on soccer fields. Since teams have been routinely requiring players to be vaccinated for covid some are wondering whether the lightly tested vaccines might be responsible.
The US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) includes thousands of deaths occurring subsequent to injections of the covid vaccines. The vast majority of these deaths involve cardiovascular damage. Is it possible that the strain of attempting to play soccer after being vaccinated could bring down some of the fittest individuals on the planet?
Covid expert and vaccine investor Dr. Anthony Fauci discounted this possibility, saying that “I have seen no evidence that would support the hypothesis that the vaccines are causing these deaths. It is not uncommon for extreme physical exertion to cause a heart attack. The original Marathon runner collapsed and died immediately after completing his 26-mile run in 490 BCE. If more athletes are collapsing now it could be due to global warming.”
Former England and Southampton soccer player Matt Le Tissier said “I doubt global warming can account for this year’s phenomenal increase in players collapsing on the field. Something more immediately connected to a more recent event seems more likely. The only way to find out is to investigate why this is happening now.”
Fauci called the demand for an investigation “unwarranted. Investigations take time and money. That’s something we can’t spare while the pandemic still rages all around us. After we get everyone vaccinated and covid is finally defeated, then maybe we’ll have an opportunity to conduct the kind of investigation being sought by Mr. Le Tissier.”
