AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine: Vaccination campaigns are being conducted in many countries of the world to win the war against Coronavirus. However, after taking Corona Vaccine, many reports of its side effects have also been revealed. Meanwhile, Denmark has become the sixth country to temporarily stop the use of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine. Danish health officials said Thursday that AstraZeneca’s use of the Kovid-19 vaccine has been temporarily banned, as blood clots developed after the vaccine was taken in some patients. The Danish Health Authority said in a statement that the move was taken after reports of some people developing blood clots after taking AstraZeneca’s Corona vaccine.
Austria announced on Monday that the 49-year-old nurse had died of a severe blood clot after taking an anti-cavid shot, after which AstraZeneca’s use of a batch of vaccine was suspended. In addition, four other European countries Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Luxembourg have also suspended the use of vaccines from this batch, which was sent to 17 European countries.

Soren Brostom, director of the Danish Health Authority, said- It is necessary to state that we have not abolished the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine. We are just stopping its use.
