Coronavirus UK news update – Brits ‘will DIE due to Europe’s extreme AstraZeneca suspension over ultra-rare bloodclots’

BRITS will die as a result of EU’s extreme reaction to the tiny risk of developing blood clots following the AstraZeneca vaccine, experts have claimed.

Despite study after study showing the AstraZeneca vaccine to be safe, shameless European leaders have repeatedly cast doubt on the jab, with French President Emmanuel Macron a ringleader of the misinformation.

And in recent weeks numerous European countries suspended their rollout of the jab citing concerns over it causing bloodclots – something there is currently no definitive evidence of whatsoever.

Germany has now stopped giving the jab to people under 60, after the rare condition was spotted in just 31 out of 2.7 million vaccinated people – a rate of around one in 90,000.

And France and Norway are no longer allowing under-55s to get the AstraZeneca’s jab, while Spain banned it for under-65s.

French and Italian politicians previously admitted the suspension was political in nature though, driven partly out of frustration at the UK’s AstraZeneca rollout being a great success story while EU struggles to get a grip on spiralling cases, widespread jab scepticism and supply issues.

The EU is also angry that AstraZeneca has been unable to deliver the quantity of vaccines it originally ordered and has threatened to seize British supplies to make up for the shortfall.

Many have questioned whether the EU’s extreme reaction to the tiny and unproven risk of bloodclots is in part to increase suspicion and drive down demand for the AstraZeneca jab as punishment for the order delays.

Speaking today Dr Simon Clarke, a microbiologist at the University of Reading, told MailOnline it “seems likely” there will be ‘avoidable deaths’ as a result of the EU’s extreme reaction. 

Dr Peter English, a former British Medical Association chief, agreed, saying there was “no evidence” of a blood clot link and that “Any decision to withhold the vaccine will directly cause excess, avoidable Covid deaths.”
