ANTI-VAXXERS ARE EXPLOITING CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN’S TERRIFYING COLLAPSE

Just hours after Danish soccer player Christian Eriksen was resuscitated on the pitch after collapsing during a Euro 2020 game on Saturday, anti-vaxxers were using the incident to push the narrative that vaccines are dangerous.

The Problem with this theory is that Erikson hasn’t been Vaccinated.

Unfounded rumors received a significant boost when a Twitter account belonging to a Czech national called Lubos Moltl tweeted that a doctor from Inter Milan had told an Italian radio station that Erikson had received the Pfizer vaccine on May 31.

The tweet went viral and on platforms like Telegram, were any anti-vaxxers post updates, the rumor was taken as fact, and used to spread even more vaccine disinformation.

Moltl later deleted his tweet after Radio Sportiva tweeted a denial.

None of this true. Inter Milan’s director Giuseppe Marotta confirmed: “He didn’t have COVID and wasn’t Vaccinated either.”

In a message: “I’m fine – under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations in hospital, but I feel okay.”

He added: “I’m fine – under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations in hospital, but I feel okay.”

On Twitter, the claims about Eriksen’s collapse being linked to the vaccine are also being widely shared, including by former English soccer player Matt Le Tissier, whose verified account has over 500,000 followers.

The claims have made their way into other platforms, with many QAnon channels sharing baseless allegations linking Eriksen’s collapse to the Pfizer vaccine.
