UK Reports 32 AstraZeneca Related Deaths After Blood Clots

Quite a number of people have suffered rare blood clots after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 jab. To be exact, a total of 168 people have suffered these side effects.

As of today, UK reported 32 new deaths due to the same issue.

The figures for clots or “thromboembolic events” run-up to April 14, by when 21.2 million people had received their first doses of the vaccine. This is according to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

This represents a rise of 10 deaths compared to the period up to April 5 and an additional 68 cases.

“On the basis of this ongoing review, the advice remains that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks in the majority of people,” the MHRA said.

The government of the UK has agreed basing on advice from the regulator to give people under the age of 30 an alternative to the AstraZeneca jab if possible. This is due to the concerns about the rising number of blood clots.

Overall, 93 women and 75 men suffered clots after receiving the vaccine.

Britain has Europe’s highest death toll from the Covid-19 pandemic. However, since the mass vaccination drive began with the AstraZeneca jab in December, rates of infection, hospitalization and death have plummeted.

For the first time since October 2020, the Coronavirus isn’t the number one cause of death in Britain.

It is said that in March, COVID-19 was the third leading cause of death in the nation.
