How many of the people in the study you quoted had previously existing conditions or other comorbidities? Be interesting to see how many had other issues that caused those complications.
The incidence of CVT and PVT after COVID-19 is substantially greater than in the matched control cohorts. The incidence of CVT after a diagnosis of COVID-19 is also substantially greater than the expected incidence in the general population in the USA, estimated to be between 0.53and 0.77 per million people in any 2-week periodand the rate is significantly higher than the highest of these estimates (binomial test: P<0.001).
The incidence is also many-fold higher than the latest reported incidence of CVT following administration of the first dose of the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19(‘Oxford-AstraZeneca’)vaccine (reported by the European Medicines Agency to be around 5 per million vaccinated people) and the latest reported incidence of CVT following administration of the Ad26.COV2.S(“J&J”) vaccine (reported by the Food and Drug Administration to be about 0.9 per million vaccinated people).
The increased rate of CVT in COVID-19 is notable, being much more marked than the increased risks for other forms of stroke and cerebral haemorrhage . The PVT data highlight that COVID-19 is associated with thrombotic events that are not limited to the cerebral vasculature.https://osf.io/a9jdq/
“We’ve reached two important conclusions,” study coauthor Paul Harrison tells CBS News. “Firstly, COVID-19 markedly increases the risk of CVT, adding to the list of blood clotting problems this infection causes. Secondly, the COVID-19 risk is higher than seen with the current vaccines, even for those under 30; something that should be taken into account when considering the balances between risks and benefits for vaccination.”
The study is not the first to link COVID-19 to an elevated risk of blood clots. Aaron Petrey, an immunologist at the University of Utah who was not involved in the Oxford study, writes in an email to The Scientist that for both COVID-19 and the vaccines against it, the risk appears to be tied to antibodies against a protein called anti-platelet factor 4. “I think the broad conclusion from this article is correct, and the risk of clots . . . is significantly higher in COVID because you have multiple mechanisms that all feed together which can result in coagulopathy—from endothelial damage to platelet hyperreactivity and the cytokine storm associated with COVID-19 among others,” he writes. “There is a rich body of study that shows COVID is a highly prothrombotic state, and as a consequence, thrombosis and stroke occur in even young healthy individuals who have mild symptoms after infection.” https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/blood-clot-risk-from-covid-19-higher-than-after-vaccines-study-68675
According to the latest data, out of the 30.8 million doses
of the University of Oxford/ AstraZeneca vaccine administered in the UK between 9 December 2020 and 5 May 2021, there have been over 260 cases
of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia cases, equivalent to 10.9 cases per million doses
(although it varies by age groups, see below). The vast majority of events have been reported following the first dose and only 8 after the second dose. Deaths occurred in 20% of the cases (about 50 people in total).https://post.parliament.uk/covid-19-vaccines-safety-and-blood-clots/
I think it’s funny how you now want to appeal to people’s “rights”. Where exactly do these rights you speak of come from? Big man in the sky? The government? Nature?
I wouldn't say anything about this is funny. Millions of people have died from a virus which has shut the down the world and caused untold devastation the likes of which we have not seen in our lifetimes and yet we have people here who with each post seem to imply that it is not actually that serious; that it is not a 'real' threat, that instead of vaccinating people it would make more sense to naturally allow the virus to spread so as to achieve herd immunity (never mind the millions more that would die as a result) and that because my missus's friend's mother had a stroke this casts doubt on the safety of the vaccine whereas the evidence of the thousands of world leading scientists, epidemiologists, mathematical modellers, virologists, public health experts etc. who study these things intensively each day is perhaps not quite up to scratch by comparison. It is absolutely nuts.
The right to life is a matter of basic moral intuition: the intrinsic moral sense that we all share as humans that affords us the ability to have compassion for others and to behave in a reciprocal fashion, and which in turn allows us to understand that if our actions unreasonably threaten the lives of our fellow citizens that there will be consequences. This is enshrined in many laws and in many different ways, including in laws which are designed to punish or deter those who would otherwise compromise the progress we have made since the start of the pandemic -- laws on public gatherings, wearing face masks, travel, quarantine etc.
