Inadequate support: Ruby's claim that “fibrous clots” in the lungs were due to COVID-19 vaccines is based solely on an unverified anecdote using a photo of unknown provenance. Gelatinous masses resembling a cast of the airways are caused by a condition called plastic bronchitis. This medical condition was already described prior to COVID-19 vaccines, contrary to claims made by Jane Ruby. COVID-19 vaccines haven’t been reported to cause plastic bronchitis.
A rare medical condition called plastic bronchitis can result in the formation of gelatinous masses in the airways. These masses, called bronchial casts, can replicate the shape of the airways in the lungs. Plastic bronchitis, which was identified in the 1800s, can be due to several causes, including infection or leaking of lymphatic fluid into the lungs. This condition was already identified in the 1800s and there isn’t scientific evidence that shows COVID-19 vaccines cause plastic bronchitis.
FULL CLAIM: COVID-19 vaccines cause never-before-seen “fibrous clots” in the lungs; there are “self-assembling nanoparticles” in COVID-19 vaccines
