Australian Blood Clot Case Likely Not Linked to AstraZeneca, Leading Epidemiologist Says

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The blood clot case reported in Australia on Friday is likely not linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine, Australian University professor, leading epidemiologist, and World Health Organisation adviser Marylouise McLaws said.

“Before we start linking the dots, we just need to put this into perspective that this is a very rare event and it’s likely not to do with AstraZeneca”, she told 9news.

A 44-year old Melbourne man was admitted to hospital on Friday after having received the AstraZeneca shot around 22 March with a rare blood clotting disorder.

McLaws explained that over 10 million people are diagnosed with a clot each year and the particular case of the Melbourne man was very rare.
