No, a Magnus Poirier cemetery did not count 154 dead babies in September 2022 | Coronavirus

However, the man in question is not an employee of Magnus Poirier and the 154 files concern deaths that have occurred since the end of 2020.

I have 12 Muslims, I have 147 bodies in unclaimed storage, and 154 babies to process. This, this is 1er September to now. 154 babies, mansays the man in the video, showing internal Magnus Poirier software that compiles death records at the Laval Cemetery.

It was enough for anti-vaccine activists to link this supposed carnage to vaccination against COVID-19. The video has been viewed over 85,000 times on TikTok, Facebook and Twitter.

We note, however, by analyzing the video, that the files shown date mainly from 2021 and that only 13 of them are dated September 2022.

If the number seems impressive, it’s simply that the files have been piling up for about two and a half years.explains the president and CEO of Magnus Poirier, Jacques Poirier, who is sorry that this video was used to feed the antivaccines.

Mr. Poirier notes that the number may also seem high because the Laval Cemetery of Magnus Poirier is the only cemetery that offers a perinatal bereavement service for the greater Montreal area.

For the past thirty years, hospitals have been offered the transport, recovery and burial of children at no cost, either to the hospital or to the families. Before, it didn’t exist. It’s not something that we advertise a lot, but we have agreements with major hospitals in Montreal and Laval, and it helps some families to better go through the bereavement.says the president of the funeral services company.

Not an employee of Magnus Poirier

Jacques Poirier also confirms that the man in the video is not one of his employees, but a person who infiltrated an office of Magnus Poirier without the knowledge of the company.

It’s a temporary office in a mobile trailer that we use while waiting for our permanent office, which should arrive in two months. We have an idea of ​​who would have entered without our knowledge, and it is not one of our employees.he argues.

The man could be held accountable, once the ongoing internal investigation is complete, in particular for having leaked confidential information.

Vaccination does not increase the risk of stillbirth

Several studies (New window) including one that analyzed nearly 100,000 pregnancies in Ontario (New window) concluded that messenger RNA vaccines against COVID-19 do not increase the risk of miscarriage, preterm birth, or stillbirth.

According to several studies (New window) , contracting COVID-19 while pregnant can increase the risk of complications during pregnancy. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends (New window) therefore, pregnant women to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Quebec statistics (New window) show that stillbirths in Quebec were significantly higher in 2020 and 2021 compared to previous years. Note, however, that the definition of stillbirth from the Institut de la statistique du Québec was broadened in October 2019, which could contribute to this increase. We were unable to obtain statistics for 2022.

A meta-analysis of studies from around the world (New window) published in the Lancet indicates that the increase in stillbirths during the pandemic may not only be attributable to the virus itself, but also to confinements, the interruption of health services and people’s fear of visiting health facilities due to the virus.
