One death in Czech Republic likely has connection with COVID vaccine

One death in the Czech Republic has a probable connection with the covid-19 vaccine, says the director of the registration section of the State Institute for Drug Control (SÚKL), Tomáš Borán. Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, he said the death was caused by thrombosis and a reduction in the number of platelets after the administration of one of the adenoviral vector vaccines.

Mr. Borán emphasised that the risk of dying from Covid-19 is much higher, with more than 40,000 people having died from the disease in the Czech Republic so far.
