The Piedmont region of northern Italy also announced the suspension of the vaccine on the same day. Starting on the 15th, most parts of the country have re-implemented the “city closure” measures due to the tightening of the epidemic.

 

Disable multiple places

The Irish Ministry of Health said on the 14th that the country’s COVID-19 vaccination center had suspended the use of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine that day. In the morning, Ronan Green, Deputy Chief Medical Officer of the Irish Ministry of Health, said in a statement that the Irish National Immunization Advisory Board had recommended that the Ministry of Health suspend vaccination of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine from the morning of the 14th. The Ministry of Health subsequently confirmed that it had adopted the recommendation.

Green said that the Irish National Immunization Advisory Committee received a report from the Norwegian Medicines Agency on the evening of the 13th, which said that four Norwegian adults were found to have severe blood clots after being vaccinated with AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine. Although the relationship between vaccines and thrombosis has not been concluded, for the sake of prevention, the Irish National Immunization Advisory Committee made the above recommendations.

Due to concerns about the safety of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine, Bulgaria decided to suspend the use of related vaccines on the 12th until the European regulatory agency gave a clear written conclusion.

Earlier, the Danish National Health Service announced on the 11th that the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine was suspended because many people developed blood clots shortly after the vaccination, and one of them died. On the same day, many European countries, including Norway, Italy, and Romania, announced the suspension of the use of related vaccines.

The Dutch Ministry of Health said that the suspension of this vaccination is to prevent potential risks.

The Piedmont region of Italy said that a local teacher died after being vaccinated with the vaccine. It is investigating whether the cause of death is related to the vaccination. The suspension of the vaccination is only a preventive measure.

The AstraZeneca vaccine is jointly developed by AstraZeneca, a joint venture between the UK and Sweden, and the University of Oxford. In the past week, many places in Europe reported thrombosis and even death after vaccination with this vaccine. Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Bulgaria and other countries have suspended vaccination. Austria, Italy and Romania previously stopped a certain batch of AstraZeneca vaccine.

 

Deny association

The World Health Organization, the European Medicines Agency, and some governments and experts emphasized that there is no causal link between AstraZeneca vaccination and thrombosis, and there is no need to question the safety of the vaccine.

An AstraZeneca spokesperson said on the 14th that after analyzing the vaccination data of more than 17 million people, there is no evidence that the risk of blood clots increases after vaccination, regardless of age, gender or country.

The spokesperson said that the data showed that the rate of thrombosis in the vaccinated population was lower than the rate of thrombus in the unvaccinated population.

The British Medicines and Health Products Administration said on the 11th that the existing evidence could not confirm that the AstraZeneca vaccine caused thrombosis, and the British people should cooperate with the vaccination after receiving the notice.

French Prime Minister Jean Castel said on the 14th that France will continue to use the AstraZeneca vaccine. “At this stage, we must have confidence in the vaccine.” The medical system in Paris, the French capital, is overwhelmed and the intensive care beds are tight. It is now necessary to transfer patients to other areas for treatment.

The Italian government decided that from the 15th, including the capital Rome and the financial center Milan, most areas of the country will once again implement “cities closure” measures, closing schools, restaurants, shops and museums.

The latest data on the WHO website shows that as of 17:13 on the 14th Central European Time, the number of confirmed cases worldwide increased by 461,105 compared with the previous day, reaching 119,220,681; and the number of deaths increased by 8,419, reaching 2,642,826.
