[Ionic 4] closeKeyboard bug issue on scroll

Here is the issue in action

The rendering of the list items hidden behind the keyboard is delayed when keyboard hides and scrolling begins. They then appear when scrolling stops. As soon as I begin scrolling, the keyboard closes and leaves a black block in its place covering the elements until scrolling is done.

In the Template:
<ion-content [scrollEvents]="true" (ionScrollStart)="closeKeyboard();">

In the .TS:
closeKeyboard() {Keyboard.hide();}

Using the Keyboard Plugin:
const { Keyboard } = Plugins;

This is causing a super noticeable problem for me, making the whole thing look choppy. Am I implementing the desired action incorrectly or could it be an issue with the scroll event firing timing with the keyboard? Cheers.
