A new study has revealed the risk of blood clots from coronavirus vaccines is “much lower” than the risks from becoming infected with COVID-19The past seven days, there have been a total of 50,881 new cases.
The British Medical Journal (BMJ) study looked at data from more than 30 million peoplePfizer and BioNTech said they are working closely wit, finding that the risks of rare blood clotting events were “substantially higher and more prolonged after SARS-CoV-2 infection than after vaccination in the same population”.
More than 29 million people in the study were vaccinated with first doses, 19.6 million with AstraZeneca and 9.5 million with Pfizer, while 1.7 million people who had a positive COVID test were also looked at.
The scientists looked at the data to make estimates for how many adverse effects would occur in 10 million peoplebut it has been extremely difficult to implement social distancing measures. Coronavirus tests are mandatory for those enterin, for each vaccine and then for COVID infection.
