Likewise, infected people are eleven times more likely to suffer a stroke (interruption of blood flow, the main cause of Acquired Brain Injury), with 1,699 additional cases out of 10 million people, than those vaccinated with Pfizer (143 additional cases).

“This huge study has shown that there is a very small risk of clotting and other arterial disorders after the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Instead, the risk of these same problems is much higher after SARS-CoV-2 infection, “said Aziz Sheikh, one of the authors, in a press release.

Researchers estimate that 107 out of 10 million people would be hospitalized or die from thrombocytopenia (low blood platelets) within 28 days of the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine. Conversely, This number rises to 934 people hospitalized or killed, for every 10 million, after a positive test for COVID-19.

Meanwhile, an estimated 143 people out of 10 million were hospitalized or died of ischemic stroke within 28 days of the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, compared to 1,699 who tested positive for Covid-19.
