Norway has changed its guidelines to apply its corona vaccine after 23 people died of corona vaccine. However, even after these deaths, Norway has decided to continue with the vaccine. All those killed in Norway were above 80 years and admitted to nursing homes. Steinar Madsen, medical director of the Medicines Agency of Norway, said, ‘Doctors must cautiously identify those who are to be vaccinated. Those who are seriously ill and counting their last breaths should be vaccinated only after examining them one by one.
At the same time, the WHO has said that it is monitoring the investigation in Norway. The WHO spokesperson said, “We are keeping a close watch on the Norwegian incidents and are in touch with the health authorities there.” We will closely monitor the investigation of the causes and circumstances of all 23 deaths. Earlier, Norway had confirmed 13 deaths due to the side effects of the vaccine. However, now the number of people who died after getting vaccinated has increased to 23.
