The Brazilian health authority Anvisa said on Wednesday that a volunteer in a clinical trial of the COVID-19 vaccine has died, but added that the trial would continue, according to a report from Reuters.com.
The vaccine in this particular trial is being developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University, the report said.
Oxford said it would keep testing, saying in a statement that “there have been no concerns about safety of the clinical trial.” The decision to continue was made by an independent review board according to a spokesperson from the university where the Stage 3 trials were being held, The Federal University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The report added that the trial would have been suspended if the volunteer had received the COVID-19 vaccine, suggesting that the person who died was part of the control group that had been given a meningitis vaccine.
The volunteer, a 28-year-old man who lived in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, is said to have died from COVID-19 complications. No further details were provided by Anvisa, and AstraZeneca declined to comment immediately, Reuters said.
Social Media Users React to Death in COVID-19 Trial
Following reports of the death, social media users on the Facebook page The Highwire With Del Bigtree reacted with dismay over the news.
The page’s users are highly aware about the potential side effects of vaccines, as Bigtree has shared facts, information and figures about this widely underreported issue of supreme medical importance for years.
Bigtree, the former Emmy Award winning producer of the CBS talk show ‘The Doctors,’ made an abrupt change in his career path after learning about the many thousands of cases of harm alleged to have been caused by vaccines since a 1986 ruling made it illegal to sue the companies.
He went on to produce the documentary VAXXED, which chronicles the anguish, pain and suffering that mothers, fathers and their children across the country experienced in the wake of their vaccine related injuries.
“A 20 (year) old AstraZeneca vaccine volunteer dies, they’re not saying whether it’s the placebo which is never a saline placebo or the vaccine itself and why should they be forthcoming with that info,” said one Facebook user named Caroline following the news, which was shared nearly 5,000 times from Bigtree’s Facebook page as of Wednesday afternoon.
Vaccine injuries have been responsible for over $4 billion in payouts since the 1986 ruling, including accusations of serious injuries and deaths. While the mainstream media refuses to share these stories, a growing contingent of people who have been dubbed “anti-vaxxers” has continued to support the search for vaccine injury truth, and the COVID-19 trial death is just the latest happening in a long line of questionable events surrounding vaccines and the harm they are capable of causing.
“Thanks for digging and bringing us the truth. You’re information is in line with what I know and find. Vaccines have killed and injured thousands,” said another user named Stephen.
“This slow degrading processes of poison mankind has been going in far too long. Brainwashed mankind worked wonders on fools. Now they’ll defend (their) self poisoning as if there life, but really their death sentence.”
