Some 127 teachers have died since vaccination programme began: Source

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 10 – A list complete with the details of 127 teachers with their names, the schools and states they were teaching in, positions they held has been released by an unnamed source through the social media today.

The source of the list is said to have come from a compilation made by teachers.

While the authenticity of the list is yet to be confirmed, a high number of the said teachers are from the state of Sarawak which has recorded 29 deaths of teachers.

According to the list 17 teachers from Johor have died, 13 teachers in Selangor, 9 in Perak, another 9 in Kedah while a smaller number of teachers’ death were recorded in Sabah, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan, Pulau Pinang, Melaka, Kuala Lumpur, Pahang and Terengganu.

While the list is not clear if the teachers died due to Covid-19 before or after receiving any vaccination, it is certainly a distressing list like the numbers of doctors and nurses who have succumbed to the virus.
