We’ve shared a number of reports and lists of athletes collapsing or dying as a result of sudden heart failure — myocarditis, pericarditis, often during competition, many resulting in sudden death. No overtime. And the list keeps getting longer.
It’s gotten to be such a problem that Wikipedia stopped listing soccer players who had died during matches or just after. A list that dated back to 1889 ends in mid-October.

It’s sad, tragic, and preventable — but refusing The Jab is verboten, and a wide range of occupations are impacted, not the least of which is health care.
