Web Desk. The World Health Organization (WHO) has also said that there is no reasonable reason to stop the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine. The WHO says that there is no truth in the sign of AstraZeneca’s blood clots.
On the other hand, many European countries, including Bulgaria, Denmark, and Norway have banned the use of AstraZeneca. However, a WHO spokesman said on Friday that the vaccine, developed by the British company Oxford, had nothing to do with clots in the blood.
WHO spokesperson Margaret Harris said, It’s a great vaccine and should continue to be used. As many as 5 million people in Europe have already been vaccinated against AstraZeneca. There have been 30 reported cases of hemorrhage after vaccination in Europe.
A 50-year-old man has also been reported dead in Italy. The WHO says it is investigating the reports but has found no evidence of health problems after the vaccine was administered. On the other hand, AstraZeneca said on Friday that the number of people who have been vaccinated has been very low.
A company spokesman said: “We have the safety data of 10 million people, but we have no evidence that the vaccine has caused blood clots in the arteries or blood clots.” After Bulgaria, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, and Thailand have also stopped the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
Italy and Australia have banned the use of specific vaccine batches as a precautionary measure. Meanwhile, the European Drug Administration said the vaccine did not pose a risk of blood clots. Blood clotting rates among vaccine recipients are no higher than the general population, according to the European Drug Administration. AstraZeneca says it has fully tested the vaccine and declared it safe.
German Health Minister Jens Spahn has condemned the suspension of the AstraZeneca vaccine by some European countries. He also adds, The benefits of this vaccine far outweigh the risks. He said that after talking to European experts, he could say with confidence that there was no clear link between the use of this vaccine and blood clotting.
President of the Robert Koch Institute for Infectious Diseases in Germany, also said that the incidence of vaccines and blood clotting in Denmark and other countries was insignificant.
