Citing the results of a study by German doctors published on November 27, Dr. Thiravat Hemachudha—currently the chief of the Thai Red Cross’s Emerging Infectious Diseases Health Science Centre—said there have been at least 25 cases of sudden death occurring within a week from a patient receiving a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine.
All the deaths were recorded as resulting from either myocarditis or pericarditis and had occurred in people aged between 45-75 who had received an mRNA vaccine, Dr. Hemachudha said in his Facebook post.
All these 25 cases of heart conditions were confirmed in autopsies carried out within a week after COVID-19 mRNA vaccination.
However, the actual figures of people suffering these two heart conditions might be a lot higher than those officially recorded as previous studies into the link between mRNA vaccination and these heart conditions conducted worldwide were all retrospective investigations which didn’t include sudden death, he warned.
Prof. Thiravat Hemachudha, MD, FACP is a Professor of Neurology, Department of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University specialising in clinical, virological, and immunological studies, and serves on the WHO Expert Advisory Panel on Rabies.
