Even Fact-Checkers Acknowledge "Covid-Related Blood Clots"
They say "no evidence they are from vaccines"
Almost everyone opined about unusual blood clots that embalmers find in deceased people. Steve Kirsch was at the forefront of the clot discussion.
I wanted to point out something interesting: even fact-checkers acknowledge these unusual clots are real. Check out this PolitiFact fact-check:
Naseem Ferdowsi outright acknowledges that the blood clots are real:
Embalmers and funeral home workers say they are noticing an increase in unusual blood clots among the deceased. Some of them, without evidence, are attributing it to the COVID-19 vaccines.
Experts we talked to say there’s something to the claim about a greater incidence of blood clots, but they dismiss the idea that it’s linked to the vaccines. What embalmers are noticing, they say, could well be the effects of COVID-19 infection itself, and those effects are occurring in people who are vaccinated and unvaccinated.
"The association between COVID-19 and blood clots was recognized early in the pandemic among hospitalized COVID-19 patients," said Yazan Abou-Ismail, a hematologist at University of Utah Health. "These patients experienced blood clots both in deep veins and arteries, which sometimes led to strokes and heart attacks. Although these conditions have mostly been seen in patients with severe COVID-19 illness, people with moderate illness have also developed blood clots."
Abou-Ismail said the incidence of blood clots ranged from 20% to 40% among patients with severe COVID-19 illness, and 3% to 9% among those with mild to moderate COVID-19 illness.
So, even fact-checkers and their sources acknowledge that the new “pandemic blood clots” are real and, they say, “they happen to victims of severe Covid-19”.
What the paid fact-checkers would not acknowledge, of course, is that such Covid clots can also happen to Covid vaccine victims. But they acknowledge the existence and atypical nature of these blood clots.
So, Steve Kirsch and fact checkers agree on one thing: novel Covid blood clots exist and are not made up.
Do I trust fact-checkers? Not in general. But if they acknowledge the existence of blood clots, when it tends to buttress the case of Steve Kirsch, I tend to take it as true.
