Indian researchers found that there is no relationship between vaccinethe tion against COVID-19 and unexplained cases of sudden deathreported Reuters.
The Indian Council of Medical Research conducted the study following “anecdotal reports of sudden unexplained deaths in apparently healthy people” between the ages of 18 and 45 between October 2021 and March 2023.
“We found no evidence of a positive association of vaccinethe tion against COVID-19 and unexplained cases of sudden death among young people”say the authors of the study published in the specialized publication Indian Journal of Medical Research. “At the same time family history of sudden death, hospitalizations for COVID-19 and lifestyle associated with abuse with alcohol and intense physical activity are among the risk factors in unexplained deaths”.
The researchers identified 29,171 cases of sudden death and analyzed health records in 729 of the cases as well as a control group of 2,916 patients. According to government data in India 45 million infected with COVID-19 and 533,295 related deaths, but experts say the real numbers are at least several times higher.
