When asked if an autopsy is being done to ease public concerns, Dr. Oven responded that Dr. Hannam is not a public figure and his family deserves privacy and respect.

Dr. Oven retweeted a post from another doctor arguing that sudden cardiac death during exercise is virtually always caused by an arrhythmia and not by a vaccine.

Sudden cardiac death during exercise is virtually always caused by an arrhythmia. It’s not a new concept and there is no elephant in the room. It’s just a regular tragedy, not an excuse to spread antivax garbage.
