The government told Parliament on Friday that a study by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) found that young adults in India who received the COVID-19 vaccination did not have an increased risk of sudden, unexplained death.
Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya responded in writing to a question posed in the Lok Sabha, stating that after being hospitalized for COVID-19, the likelihood of unexplained sudden deaths was increased by certain lifestyle behaviors and a family history of sudden death.
The minister was answering a question about whether there had been any documented cases in the nation of a connection between the Covid vaccine and heart attack incidents.
Some people have reported experiencing sudden deaths after contracting Covid; however, Mandaviya stated that there is not enough evidence to determine the cause of these deaths.
In order to gather information about the increasing number of cardiac arrest cases that were reported following the Covid pandemic, the National Institute of Epidemiology (NIE) of the ICMR carried out a study titled.
“Factors associated with unexplained sudden deaths among adults aged 18-45 years in India — A multicentric matched case-control study” at 47 tertiary-care hospitals located across 19 states and Union territories from May to August.
