Fans across the globe were devastated to hear about this tragic news. Betty White’s death just weeks before her 100th birthday. Rumours quickly started to circulate about her death. Many speculated that she was killed by the COVID-19 booster. Similar rumors have been made about other celebrities. However, White’s agent is putting those false claims to rest.
Did A COVID-19 Booster Shot Cause White’s Death?
The rumors emerged after White’s fake quote started spreading through social media. “‘Eat healthy and get all your vaccines. I just got boosted today.’ – Betty White, Dec. 28th, 2021.”Many people believed that her death was due to complications from the shot. As her agent pointed out, she never claimed that.
Jeff Witjas, White’s agent and friend, quickly put an end to the speculation, Telling People, “Betty died peacefully in her sleep at her home,”He said this in a statement. “People are saying her death was related to getting a booster shot three days earlier but that is not true. She died of natural causes. Her death should not be politicized — that is not the life she lived.”
“She never said that regarding the booster,”He continued. “Betty died of natural causes. She did not have the booster three days before she died.” While Witjas’ statement did clear up the booster shot rumors, many are curious about what White’s agent meant when he said “natural causes.”
What is it? ‘Natural Causes’ Mean?
Dying of natural causes isn’t a medical term, Sarah Reuss, MD, a pathologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Telled Health. “It’s more of a term used to communicate with people outside the medical field,”She went on.
“A lot of times, what we use to talk to each other [in the medical field] doesn’t make sense to people outside the field, so we have a lot of terms to help people outside the medical field better understand us,” Reuss said.
Erin McNeely MD is an internist at Spectrum Health in Michigan. She agreed that natural death can be compared with an old car breaking down. “The car rusts out, the engine stops, and things stop working over time,”She spoke. “Your body eventually just slows down and stops. Your pancreas, heart, and lungs stop working. It’s essentially multi-organ failure.”
When the phrase “natural causes” shows up on a death certificate, it typically means that the person wasn’t diagnosed with any one health condition, such as heart failure, or that they didn’t die in an accident.
While Betty died naturally, the original report stated that she had died. TMZ later reported that her official cause of Death was Stroke complicationsSix days before her death, the famous actress was suffering from strokes. The booster or the Covid vaccine did not cause the stroke.
