Fact Check-British Airways is not in ‘crisis talks’ with the government over vaccinated pilots
Claims that British Airways is in “crisis talks” with the British government due to the deaths of three pilots who received COVID-19 shots are unfounded, a company representative and British medicines regulator spokesperson has told Reuters.

Shared in the form of a voice recording on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, an unidentified male says he has spoken to a “friend who’s a BA pilot” and explains “things are getting crazy” after three fellow pilots passed away (here , here and here).

“They’ve had the third BA pilot die in the last seven days, yeah? Third pilot dead in the last week,” says the man heard in the recording. “The first two guys were in their forties and fifties; this guy, mid-thirties, perfectly fit, no underlying conditions. He gets his second jab and he’s dead within days, exactly the same with the first two.

“Because of this, BA are now in crisis talks with the government about whether to allow vaccinated pilots to fly. The issue with that of course is that about 80%, according to my friend in BA, 80-85% have been injected.”

The man then goes on to say only “10% of pilots will be able to fly,” branding it a “serious issue”.

On Twitter, some users have also shared a photo of what appears to be four books of condolence next to framed pictures of four men in a British Airways-themed lounge (here). “I believe it was actually FOUR young pilots who died due to the Maxine,” tweeted one user.

Reuters presented the claims to British Airways, which said they were unfounded and that no such talks were underway with the government. The spokesperson, however, confirmed the authenticity of the four condolence books, as four company pilots had recently passed away. “Our thoughts are with their family and friends,” they said, adding that none of the deaths was linked to vaccines.

In a statement to Reuters, the UK’s Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) also denied any such crisis talks with Britain’s flagship air carrier.

“We have not been made aware of deaths of BA pilots after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine and have not had discussions with BA or other airlines, about preventing pilots from flying after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Sarah Branch, the director of vigilance and risk management of medicines for the MHRA. “There are currently no restrictions on aviation or other industries and activities post vaccination.

“Our advice remains that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks in the majority of people. It is still vitally important that people come forward for their vaccination and for their second dose when invited to do so.

“We ask anyone who suspects they have experienced a side effect linked with their COVID-19 vaccine to report it to the Coronavirus Yellow Card website.”

VERDICT
False. British Airways is not in “crisis talks” with the British government about vaccinated pilots. Four pilots have recently died – and British Airways says none of these is linked to vaccines.

Only 10% of Russians have been vaccinated . No one wants the Sputnik vaccine. It lost its approval for distribution throughout the world.
Now if they took out the chips. In Russia's case they actually are putting one in. And it is not like they tried making it small enough that you can't see it.

Important study out of UK Worth your time.
Researchers examined brain MRIs of people before and after they got COVID, matched with controls.
What did they find?
Substantial loss of grey matter in those who had gotten but recovered from COVID

I don’t know why Biden gave Putin a couple gifts when they met. What a waste of money! I saw Hilarys interview on the morning Joe the other day and it was fantastic. She should be our president today really. It’s a great interview . I would love to see her bitch slap Putin. No more mansplainig bullshit allowed motherfuckers. Maybe she will still become President one day. She would be amazing .

Moscow reports 9,056 new coronavirus cases, the biggest one-day increase on record
no wonder Putin is scared. something i gleaned from Biden is that Putin doesn't have a plan because he doesn't have a government and they're going to try to help him through it. self-interest is self-interest..we're going to trade them and they're going to trade us..deliverables TBD. unless Putin acts up then we can pull right the fvck out.

9056? one day? he needs help.

I'm not a fan of Ricky at all. He's a self-entitled asshole IMO. But yeah, I agree that people's choices should be theirs to make, and of course every decision comes with "consequences", but as long as people are willing to own up to the decisions that they make, and understand that they create their own destiny, instead of blaming others, I'm good with that.
Shit the fuck up and stop killing people
