In New Zealand, there has been a public response to the news that the first Covid-19-related deaths may have been confirmed.
However, government officials and health care professionals continue to emphasize that vaccination is many times safer than Covid-19. This news comes at a time when the country is scheduled partially soften the very strict restrictions that were announced to stop the wave caused by the delta variant of the virus.
The Independent Vaccine Safety Monitoring Center in New Zealand reported that this could be the first reported death that is “possibly” linked to vaccination.
A woman who also had other health problems lost her life from a myocardial infection after being vaccinated with Pfizer. An investigation has been launched into this case, in which doctors will reach a final conclusion.
Information about the woman’s age and previous illnesses was not made public, but health officials stressed that the incident should not deter the population from being vaccinated, which is still considered the best way to significantly reduce the risks associated with Covid-19.
“I understand that this worries some people, but I want to reiterate that there is very clear evidence that vaccination is much safer than infection with Covid-19. Myocarditis is a very rare side effect. We know about it and are vigilant as well. We have collected very accurate information about any side effects and we do not see anything unusual compared to what has happened in other countries. . “
In New Zealand, home to less than five million people, only 26 deaths and 3.5,000 infections have been reported from Covid-19 infections.
Introducing a four-level alarm system with strict restrictions, New Zealand had long been able to fully trace all rare infections, but due to the delta variant of the virus, a second wave of the virus began more than a year and a half later.
