The Swedish Medical Products Agency revealed, today, Thursday, that a woman who was in good health died a week after being vaccinated with the “AstraZeneca” vaccine.

“This is a case of blood clots in the arteries and veins and severe bleeding … it is the case (which is) the focus of the investigation of the European Union Medicines Control Authority,” Veronica Arthursson, head of the drug safety department at the Swedish Medicines Agency, said at a press conference.

Sweden announced today that it will extend its suspension of the use of the “AstraZeneca” vaccine until next week.

The European Union Medicines Control Authority said today, Thursday, that it is still convinced that the benefits of the “AstraZeneca” vaccine against Covid-19 outweigh its risks, after an investigation into reports of blood clotting prompted more than 12 countries to suspend its use.
