In our podcast “Minute Papillon! “, We are interested in the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic, and vaccination campaigns. Because of this extraordinary crisis, but also because information and communication technologies have never been so accessible and powerful, you see a lot of messages, photos and videos going on social networks about this virus. . Among them, false information, such as that affirming that this virus would have been favored by 5G, or that we can cure the disease by taking cocaine …
In this context of crisis, long and agonizing, where the voices of experts, politicians, gurus intermingle and contradict each other, where a truth can be distorted in order to persuade, disinformation thrives and it seems impossible to analyze everything, check everything. The “Fake off” section of 20 Minutes, a fact-checking service, particularly on social networks, works on this on a daily basis. You can find these articles there.
A causal link between the vaccine and death?
In this episode, Mathilde Cousin, journalist with “Fake off”, returns today to the hot topic of post-vaccination deaths in France, Spain or Germany: adverse effects or “natural” death after the injection of Pfizer vaccines / BioNTech? How are the effects of Covid-19 vaccines monitored? Do we know what Barton Williams, a 36-year-old American doctor, who received two shots of the vaccine in January and died in early February?
This episode evokes several investigations by our journalists on post-vaccination deaths. In particular, they interviewed the European Medicines Agency, Judith Mueller, professor of epidemiology at the School of Advanced Studies in Public Health and attached to the unit of epidemiology of emerging diseases at the Institut Pasteur, or doctor Stephen Threlkeld, infectious disease specialist in Memphis, Tennessee.
