The whole world has been plagued by the Corona pandemic for the past year. The corona, which spread from the Chinese city of Wuhan, engulfed the world in just a few days.

Vaccination is currently the only way to control corona. Researchers around the world have discovered a vaccine against corona and the vaccination campaign is gaining momentum in every country. The vaccines Covishield, Covaxin and Sputnik are also being given to people in India.

The Corona Vaccine is completely safe. India will soon meet its target of 100 crore doses. At the same time, doctors are also perplexed as a strange case of side effects of corona vaccine has come to light in Delhi.

Doctors say that after corona vaccination, there may be problems with blood clotting and a decrease in platelets. A similar pattern has emerged at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in the capital. So far 7 patients have been shown adverse effects of corona vaccine.

According to Dr. Jyoti Kotwal of the Hematology Department at Sir Gangaram Hospital, 7 patients have been found in this case. The first case came to light on June 7. At that time, the patient's serum sample was sent to the Army Hospital. This was confirmed in the Gold Standard Test.

Doctors initially sent five samples to a hospital in Kerala and one to a private hospital in Delhi. Doctors say that low platelets can cause this condition. But blood clots are rare with low platelets.

It has been shown to cause adenovirus-based corona vaccine side effects. Doctors say similar cases have been reported in Denmark, Germany and Canada. Sir Gangaram Hospital is the only hospital in India where testing facilities are available for thrombotic confirmation caused by the vaccine.

Within 3 to 30 days after the first dose of the vaccine, frequent symptoms such as headache, vomiting or sores or bleeding may occur and a diagnosis may be suspected if the platelet count is low. Without it the D-dimer level increases. It is important to consult a doctor.

D-dimer blood contains proteins that form micro clots. It works by clotting blood on the inside of the body. Globally, after corona vaccination, the thrombotic type is found in 1 in 1 lakh patients, which is very rare.

If there are any symptoms after vaccination, the patient should go to the doctor immediately and seek proper diagnosis and timely diagnosis. Asked at hospitals like AIIMS and Lok Nayak, he was told that no such patient was found.
