Is it really the way in which the AstraZeneca vaccines have been given that has triggered the deadly blood clots in several people in Europe? Chief physician and professor Niels Høiby suspects this.
“It may explain the few cases where it has gone completely wrong,” he says.
The use of AstraZeneca has now been suspended in several European countries after the deaths, including in Denmark after the death of a 60-year-old woman. But the professor of clinical microbiology at Rigshospitalet has now zoomed in on the injection itself rather than the vaccine.
