translated from Spanish: WHO says there is «no reason not to use» the AstraZeneca vaccine

The World Health Organization (WHO) said Friday that «there is no reason not to use» the AstraZeneca vaccine against COVID-19, so it stressed that «continued administration» should be carried out, following concerns about the suspension of its use as a «precaution» in several European countries and while conducting an investigation of thromboembolism cases. WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris has said that «no deaths related to the administration of coronavirus vaccines have been detected to date,» when more than 268 million doses have already been applied. In this regard, Harris has specified that the WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Immunization Experts (SAGE) is already evaluating reports on the AstraZeneca vaccine.» Blood clotting episodes are common in people so it’s unclear whether this was something that was going to happen or whether the vaccine was responsible,» he said, adding that «a causal relationship has not been demonstrated.» According to the UN, Austria, Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, Norway, Iceland and Thailand have so far stopped inoculation with this vaccine as a precaution. It should be remembered that in Chile, the Institute of Public Health (PSI) reported that it requested a history from the pharmaceutical laboratory after reports of thromboembolism in Europe.In view of which, from the PSI, they noted that a safety data analysis of more than 10 million records was performed, without demonstrating evidence of an increased risk of pulmonary embolism or venous thrombosis in vaccinated groups.
