Brain clots far more likely from Covid-19 than vaccines


Reuters reported on April 15, that according to British research there is a much higher risk of brain blood clots from COVID-19 infection than there is from vaccinesagainst the disease,

The researchers said in a pre-print study that the risk of CVST was eight to 10 times higher following COVID-19 infection than it was from existing vaccines for the disease.

The researchers highlighted that COVID-19 was associated with more common clotting disorders than CVST, such as strokes, and that recent debate around vaccines had lost sight of how bad the disease itself could be. The research team, from Oxford University, said they worked independently from the Oxford vaccine team which developed AstraZeneca’s shot.
