Scientists and health agencies in several countries, including the World Health Organization see no links in COVID deaths and vaccines.
The more recent denial of such occurrences is from a WHO researcher who dismisses such links.
Soumya Swaminathan from WHO says no evidence exist linking deaths to any vaccine.
This statement came after numerous European Union countries and other nations suspended the usage of AstraZeneca’s vaccine.
Indeed, these countries fear it is causing blood clots.
“There is no documented death that’s been linked to a COVID vaccine,” Soumya Swaminathan, a WHO clinical scientist, says.
“While we need to continue to be very closely monitoring this, we do not want people to panic.”
“Countries should for the time continue vaccinating with AstraZeneca,” the scientist says.
Meanwhile, The EU’s European Medicines Agency earlier said the vaccine is safe.
They all believe “the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine in preventing COVID-19, with its associated risk of hospitalization and death, outweigh the risks of side effects.”
FIVE EU NATIONS
However, five EU nations France, Sweden, Germany, Spain, and Italy have all suspended usage of the vaccine.
The list of countries suspending the vaccine is growing. Norway, Denmark and Iceland have suspended their rollout of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca COVID vaccine.
This follows the death of a 60-year-old woman who developed a blood clot after being vaccinated.
Nevertheless, professor Robert Booy, a vaccine expert at the University of Sydney says there is no cause for concern.
‘The issue of blood clots occurring is, first of all, one of coincidence. We expect people to have clots coincidentally with vaccination in the previous day or week,’ newsGP quotes him as saying.
‘So the concern is that the increase in the risk of clotting with COVID-19 is the real factor at hand.’
In the meantime, the maker of the vaccine AstraZeneca says ‘no evidence’ linking the vaccine to clots.
AstraZeneca states that “around 17 million people in the EU and UK have now received our vaccine,” reports The Epoch Times.
The number of cases of blood clots reported in this group is lower than the hundreds of cases expected among the general population.
Neither WHO nor the experts speaking about the blood clot has an answer or have a solution to prevent such incidents from happening.
Nevertheless, if they want to limit fear among people they should tell what to do and not do before and after taking the vaccines.
