Everyone is chatting about “blood clots” generically with AZ vax, but the main concern is the type of clot (sinus vein thrombosis) occurring in those under 50 https://t.co/smbdo6vkqJ

- Norwegian Doctor Claims To Find Link Between AstraZeneca Vaccine And Rare Blood Clots
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
As we wait for the EMA’s decision, a top Norwegian health official tasked with investigating a series of three high-profile cases of health-care workers under the age of 50 being hospitalized for similar cases of rare blood clots after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine have proposed a theory that’s bound to infuriate AstraZeneca, along with the EMA and WHO.
Chief physician and professor Pål Andre Holme told Norwegian papers on Thursday, just hours before the EMA was set to release the findings of its promised “safety review” (which was conducted even more hastily than the initial vaccine studies), that he has a new theory about what caused the reactions in the health workers, and unfortunately, per Holme, the AstraZeneca jab acted as the trigger.
“Our theory that this is a powerful immune response which most likely was caused by the vaccine has been found. In collaboration with experts in the field from the University Hospital of North Norway HF, we have found specific antibodies against blood platelets that can cause these reactions, and which we know from other fields of medicine, but then with medical drugs as the cause of the reaction,” the chief physician explains to VG.
“We have the reason. Nothing but the vaccine can explain why these individuals had this immune response,” he states.
In an attempt to explain to readers why they should care, Holme concluded: “We’re talking about relatively young people that have become very sick here, and died, that probably wouldn’t have got such a serious case of Covid.”
More than 2 dozen cases of the rare blood clots have been reported, by local authorities have pointed to a potential link between patients with low blood-platelet counts. Still, after about 10M doses, the number of confirmed blood-clot incidents is just over 25. Those are some pretty low odds.
