  • Dangerous anti vaxer video about nurse with Bells Palsy

    Tony L @TonyL Stoneleigh updated 26 days ago

    A friend of mine sent me a video, supposedly of an American nurse who claimed that she had the covid 19 vaccination, felt fine afterwards but within 30 days she developed Bells Palsy, a paralysis on one side of the face. She begs people not to take the vaccination.


    This video is fake.


    30 days is a hell of a long time for side effects to take to appear. The first covid 19 vaccination in the USA took place on December 14th. 30 days from then would be mid January so unless she has a tardis she’s lying.


    Also, just because two things happen one after the other it doesn't mean that the first one caused the second one.


    According to Wikipedia Bells Palsy occurs in 1 to 4 per 10,000 people per year. About 1.5% of people are affected at some point in their lives. It's also nearly always temporary - My dad had it years ago after riding in a car with the window open and one side of his his face got too cold.


    If we assume a middle number of 2 people per 10,000 per year, thats 1 person per 5000 people will get it in a given year. Assuming that the cases are evenly distributed throughout the year, then you'd expect 1/12th of these people to get Bells Palsey or one person in 60,000 to get it in a given month.


    The USA has vaccinated about 2.8 million people so far, so if 1 in 60,000 of those people develop Bells Palsey, then that’s 46 cases just by pure chance per month. In the half a month since they started vaccination that’s 23 cases.


    The video is FAKE! I suspect that anti vaxers persuaded someone with Bells Palsy to record it.


    If someone sends you the video please don't pass it on.
