A 42-year-old male health worker who was vaccinated by covid on Tuesday at Nirmala District Kuntala PHC was rushed to the district hospital today. He struggled with chest pain last night. He was brought to the hospital around 5.30 am on Wednesday. However, doctors have already confirmed that he is dead.
However, the Telangana government’s director of public health and family welfare said that preliminary investigations show that the death was not related to the vaccine. This is the first death in India after corona vaccination. According to the guidelines, a team of doctors will perform the postmortem. Only then can the cause of death be determined.
The concerned departments will look into the matter and submit a report to the Central AEFI Committee. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. There are already many myths about the safety of the vaccine.
This news may further damage public confidence. On the other hand, the Telangana government will complete the vaccination of health workers working in government hospitals by the 22nd of this month and prepare to give it to health workers in private hospitals.
