Researchers who have uncovered a link between AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine and the risk of fatal side effects believe the finding is extremely serious.

Researchers at Oslo University Hospital (OUS) and the University Hospital of Northern Norway (UNN) have shown a connection between AstraZeneca’s corona vaccine and severe blood clots, low levels of platelets, and bleeding.

A total of eleven medical professionals have been involved in the effort in Norway. Chief physician and professor Pål André Holme at Rikshospitalet has led the work.

Researchers have chosen to call the condition “vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia.”

“This is extremely serious. I can hardly imagine any more serious side effects than what we have seen here. These are fatal side effects for three out of five who have had these side effects,” Holme said at a press conference on Saturday.

German study

On Friday afternoon, the case was published in The New England Journal of Medicine. At the same time, a similar German study with the same findings was published. Both state that there is a link between AstraZeneca’s corona vaccine and the risk of serious side effects.

In Norway, 133,870 people have received the AstraZeneca vaccine. The researchers examined five patients. Four women and a man aged from 32 to 54 years have experienced different variants of the same disease picture. Three have died. All were health workers.
