First death in Canada after receiving AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine!



First death in Canada after receiving AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine!  On April 27th, 799 people were newly infected with COVID-19 in BC in the past 24 hours, and no one died.

On the same day, the province of Quebec reported that a 54-year-old woman unfortunately developed a blood clot after receiving AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine and died after being rescued by the hospital. This is also the first death in Canada after vaccination with AstraZeneca.

AstraZeneca said in a statement issued on April 27 that the company had learned of the death, but it also stated that it “should not comment further on the specific case.”

Thrombocytopenia and thrombosis have been confirmed as adverse reactions of AstraZeneca vaccination. According to Reuters, since the first thrombosis case appeared on April 13, Canada has reported at least five similar cases in just two weeks.

In addition, according to Reuters, 40% of the first patients in Europe who were vaccinated with AstraZeneca and had thrombotic reactions have died.

The Minister of Health of Quebec Province Christian Dube said on the 27th that the province had vaccinated 400,000 provincial residents with AstraZeneca, but the governor Francois Legault said that the woman’s death was a “planned risk” and that this Complications are too rare, and the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine far outweigh the risks. Quebec will continue to promote AstraZeneca vaccination.

There were 899 new cases in Quebec on April 27, and the number of new cases has been less than 1,000 for two consecutive days. At 9:30 am local time on the same day, Quebec Governor Francois Legault said at a press conference that the curfew in Montreal and Laval will be adjusted from the current 8 pm to 9:30 on May 3rd.

At present, including Ontario, which has the largest population, several provinces in Canada have begun to provide AstraZeneca vaccines to people 40 years of age and older in accordance with the recommendations of the National Immunization Advisory Committee. At present, the age threshold for people receiving AstraZeneca vaccine in Quebec is 45 years old, and the AstraZeneca vaccine has been resumed in most European countries.
