Tragedy in South Korea! What Would Cause Mass Cardiac Arrest, a Mass Casualty Event in Young People?
Initial reports were of a crowd event, however other reports indicate that shortness of breath preceded the crowd mass panic. Prayers and Thoughts for the VIctims, and Their Families, and Loved One!
The news today is filled with accounts of a mass cardiac arrest event in South Korea, during crowded festivities for Halloween. Initially this was reported as a stampede event.
But other reports, tragically reporting even more deaths, indicate that difficulty breathing and collapse of some event participants came first.
This article quoting a different bystander also mentions people fainting, and CPR after cardiac arrest.
Could cardiac events have triggered the ensuing panic? This paper discusses catecolaminergic mediated cardiac events, and SADS, following the inoculation that has been given to much of the South Korean population.
The Abstract concludes:
The epidemiological, autopsy, molecular, and physiological findings unanimously and strongly suggest that a hypercatecholaminergic state is the critical trigger of the rare cases of myocarditis due to components from SARS-COV2, potentially increasing sudden deaths among elite male athletes.
South Korea is among one of the most heavily covid-19 vaccinated countries in the world. They had approved most of the available brands for use. While current daily dosing is low, the first peak of vaccine uptake was in mid-June and then August to October 2021, and then the highest peak in December 2021.
Most of the population had already received the products. Current cumulative uptake is 249.88 doses / 100 population. 86.25% of the population are reported to have completed initial protocols and 79.47 doses of booster product have been given / 100 population.
South Korean has an overall current cumulative excess mortality reported of 5.36%, however in weekly data, there was an astounding peak 71.36% excess mortality reported the week of March 27, 2022; the spread of that peak is from 6 February to 6 June 2022 somehow 6 months after that peak dosing period.
Cannot help but speculate if the tragic event just seen in Korea may soon be seen in other mass crowd, mass excitement situations. Where damaged hearts suddenly break!
