Investigate every fatality among those vaccinated against COVID-19 – Dr. Yong
The deaths of people who die after being injected with COVID-19 vaccines are not always related to the vaccines. There is, therefore, a need to determine whether there is any connection between the deaths and the vaccine, according to well-known Thai virologist Dr. Yong Pooworavan.
Citing reports of 23 fatalities among elderly people in Norway, after they were inoculated against COVID-19, the virologist from the Faculty of Medicine at Chulalongkorn University said that it should not be assumed that all the fatalities were related to the vaccine without investigation.
From his 30 years of experience studying of vaccines, Dr. Yong said that, even when a person who was vaccinated dies from falling down a manhole, the case must be investigated to find out if side effects from the vaccine led to the fatal fall.
Citing another case of a volunteer who was shot dead two days after his vaccination, he said that an investigation was carried out to find out whether it was possible that the vaccine might cause the volunteer to become aggressive and, hence, was shot dead.
Regarding the 23 fatalities in Norway, he said most of them were over 80 years old and some of them had comorbidities, which could have led to their deaths.
Noting that more than 40 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines, most of them manufactured by Pfizer, have been injected into millions of people, he predicted that there will be more fatalities among those vaccinated.
Since all the vaccines are new, he stressed the need to monitor the conditions of those vaccinated, especially for any negative side effects.
