KUALA LUMPUR – The Perak Police denied the information on a viral video which alleged that two secondary school students have died after taking the Covid-19 vaccine.
While denying the baseless claim, the Perak Police Chief, Commissioner Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said that the police are investigating the viral video on the fake allegation on the social media.
“The allegation that two school students have died due to the vaccine is confusing and not accurate.
“It is true that two students from the secondary school have passed away but they did not died of vaccine as claimed in the social media video. That is not true.
“On 18 July, a female student passed away due to Covid-19. She has medical history of chronic diabetes and high blood pressure. She was being treated in a critical condition at the Ipoh Hospital (Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital),” he told MalaysiaGazette today.
Another male student died on 17 September due to heart attack.
“These show that the death of the two students have no relation to the vaccination at all.
“Besides that, the vaccination for adolescents only started on 20 September,” he said.
When asked about the action that the police will be taking on the viral video, Mior said that the police have opened and investigation paper and are investigating on the case.
According to him, a woman has been identified with the viral video and she will be called to record her statement and assist in police investigation soon. – MalaysiaGazette
