Chief physician Pål André Holme at Rikshospitalet, Oslo, Norway says that he believes there is a connection between the AstraZeneca vaccine and the serious cases of side effects.
“I think it is difficult to conclude yet. But I would consider it more unlikely that there is no connection, than that there is a connection, says Holme, who is chief physician at the department of blood diseases”
– So there may be a connection?
– I think so, yes, he answers.
One of the three health workers who was recently admitted to Rikshospitalet after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine, died on Sunday. The hospital has investigated extensively to find out if there may be a connection.
“The results are starting to tick in, and we are starting to get indications that there are associations here”, says Holme.
