Denmark reports two more cases of blood clots

AstraZeneca is investigating cases of blood clots related to Covid-19 vaccinations across Europe. Now two more cases have occurred in Denmark, one person has died.

Denmark on Saturday announced two more cases of blood clots and associated cerebral hemorrhage that occurred after being vaccinated with AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine . Two hospital employees are affected. Accordingly, one of the victims died as a result.

Both people had received the vaccine less than 14 days before symptoms began. The Danish Medicines Agency also confirmed the “serious reports” on Twitter , but did not provide any details. First the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet reported on it. Accordingly, one of the victims should be a 30-year-old woman.

Several European countries had suspended AstraZeneca’s vaccinations after the vaccinated people had developed blood clots in very rare cases. According to the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI) responsible for vaccines in Germany, the suspected cases in Germany were thromboses in the brain, which rarely occur.

At the same time, those affected had a lack of blood platelets and bleeding had occurred. According to the PEI, it is a serious disease that is difficult to treat. Vaccinations with the drug from AstraZeneca were therefore temporarily suspended in Germany.
