Karnataka: Asha worker dies 12 days after jab | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: An Asha worker from Belagavi, who was administered the Covishield dose on January 22, died on Wednesday (Feb 3).
The 33-year-old developed headache and began vomiting on January 30. She was treated for gastritis at Belagavi Institute of Medical Sciences. When the headache persisted, she was shifted to KLE hospital. The cause of death is reported as cerebral thrombosis — a brain clot.
“The AEFI committee believes the death is coincidental as the course of events happened eight days after vaccination,” said Dr Rajani KN, state deputy director for immunisation. “She had no comorbidities.” This is the third death post vaccination in the state.
