Moradabad: In Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh, there has been a stir after the suspected death of a health worker. 48-year-old Mahipal, who was posted as ward boy in the district hospital, has died. The deceased had vaccinated the Covid vaccine covishield on 16 January as part of the Covid vaccination campaign.
“He (ward boy) was given the Covishield vaccine at about 12 PM on Saturday. A day later, he suffered pain in the chest with breathlessness. He had worked the night shift after vaccination and we don’t think the death is due to any side effect of the vaccine. We are trying to verify the exact reason of his death”, TOI quoted the chief medical officer (CMO) of the hospital as saying.
CMO Moradabad said, “There seems to be no reaction to the vaccine. The cause of death is being investigated. The postmortem will be conducted. They were not previously corona infected.”
In Delhi, a 22-year-old security guard at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) as he developed an allergic reaction after receiving coronavirus vaccine. Reports claimed that the guard suffered headache, rash, respiratory distress, and tachycardia after getting the first shot.
