S. africa Reports First Death Associated with COVID Jab

Health regulator establishes causal hyperlink between vaccination and a deadly case of Guillain-Barre Syndrome

On Thursday, South African wellness authorities said they had – for the first time – established a direct link between the death of the individual and Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine.  

The South African Health Items Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) said in a statement it was well informed of a fatal case of a rare neurological disorder known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) following vaccination with J& J’s Janssen vaccine.  

The patient’s private details were not disclosed because of confidentiality considerations.  

SAHPRA CEO Boitumelo Semete-Makokotlela said that a causality assessment, conducted in full compliance with the methodology established by the World Health Organization (WHO), concluded the case was indeed  “ a shot product-related event. ”  

“ The events reported in the vaccine recipient were in line with the case definition for GBS and no other likely reason for GBS was identified at the time of illness, ”   she said.  

SAHPRA had assessed around 160 fatalities since the Covid vaccination campaign started in S. africa but had never founded a causal link between a death and vaccination until now, the official said.  

GBS is an extremely rare but severe adverse event that is associated with the administration of various vaccines and other medicines and can also be triggered by infections, ”   Semete-Makokotlela emphasized, adding that the benefits of vaccination still far outweighed the risk.  

Reuters reported that J& J pointed out in an e-mailed comment that GBS has been associated with a number of vaccines as well as other medicines, and can be brought on by SARS-CoV-2 – herpes that causes Covid-19.  

As Semete-Makokotlela explained to reporters, GBS is a uncommon condition affecting the body’s immune system, causing various mild-to-severe signs and symptoms, including muscle weakness, muscles pain, numbness, and tingling. In many cases, the syndrome solves itself with no serious negative effects, but it can become serious and cause paralysis and other life-threatening symptoms.  

Last year, authorities in the US additional a warning about an elevated risk of GBS within the 42 days following vaccination to FDA’s factsheet for J& J’s Covid-19 vaccine.
