The death of a person 10 days after being given a COVID-19 vaccine was by natural causes, not a consequence of the inoculation, according to a senior health official.
On Friday, Thai media quoted Dr Sophon Iamsirithaworn, deputy director-general of the Department of Disease Control, as saying the patient had an aortic aneurysm.
The patient had suffered from a chronic illness since birth and required continual treatment.
The person underwent surgery, but the illness escalated and caused the patient’s death about 10 days after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, he said.
The Public Health Ministry would release further details later, he said.
