British regulatory agencies have identified 30 cases of rare blood clot incidents after the use of AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine. The new number is 25 more than the number reported in the past.
Some countries restrict the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine because the authorities investigated reports of rare (and in some cases severe) blood clots in patients who received the prick.
However, officials believe that the benefits of this vaccine far outweigh any possible risk of blood clots.
Last month, the British Drug Regulatory Agency registered five rare cases of cerebral blood clots out of 11 million doses. The number has risen to 22 cases, reported as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, an extremely rare brain clot disease, and 8 cases of blood clotting related to low platelets.
Regulators stated that they have not received any such reports after using the BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine.
