In our previous coronavirus report, health authorities in Norway said that there was no link found between the deaths of elderly patients and Pfizer-BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccines.
President Rodrigo Duterte took jabs at who criticized his priority for acquiring Sinovac’s COVID-19 vaccines. Duterte, in response, claimed that the Pfizer caused the deaths of 25 patients from Norway.
However, Norwegian Institute of Public Health director Camilla Stoltenberg said that the fatalities had “serious illnesses” and the vaccine is not linked to their deaths.
“On average about 45 people die every day at nursing homes in Norway, so it’s not given that this represents any excess mortality or that they are related to the vaccines“, she added.
