According to a research by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), young individuals in India are not more likely to have unexpected, unexplained deaths after receiving the Covid-19 immunization. Actually, the research suggests that getting the vaccination at least once may lessen the likelihood of these unplanned deaths.
The ICMR research found that an increased risk of sudden death was linked to prior hospitalization due to COVID-19, a family history of sudden deaths, binge drinking, and strenuous, unfamiliar activities.
47 tertiary care hospitals throughout India participated in the Indian Council of Medical Research study. The cases, according to ICMR, were healthy people between the ages of 18 and 45 who had no known co-morbidities and who unexpectedly passed away from unknown reasons between October 1, 2021, and March 31, 2023 (less than 24 hours after being admitted to the hospital or seeming well 24 hours before to death).
For every instance, there were four controls that were matched based on neighborhood, gender, and age. According to the ICMR website, “We conducted interviews and reviewed medical records to gather information on Covid-19 vaccination/infection and post-Covid-19 conditions, smoking, recreational drug use, smoking history, alcohol frequency and binge drinking, and vigorous-intensity physical activity two days prior to death/interviews.”
