The controversies around the covid vaccines continue. These have been surrounded by a lot of issues, mostly about the vaccines’ potential side effects.
Check out the latest gloomy news coming from Japan.
The Guardian writes that, unfortunately, there is a third man has died in Japan after receiving an injection from one of three batches of Moderna vaccines.
A few of them have been identified as contaminated, though authorities say no causal link has yet been found.
The same online publication says that the 49-year-old man had his second shot on 11 August and died the following day.
‘His only known health issue was an allergy to buckwheat, the health ministry said on Monday. As with the previous two deaths, the ministry said it had yet to establish if the latest fatality was linked to the vaccine,’ according to The Guardian.
The same online publication notes the following:
“the shot came from the same batches that were found to have fragments of stainless steel in them, leading to a recall of 1.63m doses of the Moderna vaccine on 26 August. The three batches were manufactured in Spain under contract by Moderna.”
Another important issue worth mentioning is the fact that he company has yet to comment on the most recent fatality.
On the other hand, it’s essential to note the fact that during the course of last week, the company issued a joint statement with local distributor Takeda Pharmaceutical.
Here’s what they said:
“The rare presence of stainless steel particles in the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine does not pose an undue risk to patient safety and it does not adversely affect the benefit/risk profile of the product.”
New corona variant and vaccines
It’s been just revealed that after the Delta variant, now the Mu variant is making waves.
The Delta Covid variant is ruling all the other strains across the globe these days. It’s already been revealed that the Delta variant is the most dangerous one so far, according to more expert opinions across the globe.
Nebraska is the only state in the US to have not detected a case of the Mu variant of Covid 19 – this could mean that the vaccines are becoming less and less effective.
