Madhya Pradesh: Days after participating in vaccine trial, man dies in Bhopal
BHOPAL: A 42-year-old man who had taken part in the trial of Covan, the indigenous coronavirus vaccine developed by Bharat Biotech, died nine days later in Bhopal, officials said.
While doctors suspect that poisoning could be the cause, Bharat Biotech said in a statement that 'preliminary reviews' indicate that the death was unrelated to the vaccine trial.
Dr Rajesh Kapur, vice chancellor, People's Medical College and Hospital where the trial was conducted, told PTI that Deepak Marawi, the deceased, had participated in the Covan tria on December 12. He died nine days later.

Bharat Biotech said in a statement that Marawi had fulfilled "all the inclusion and exclusion criteria to be accepted as a participant in the Phase III trial".
He was reported to be healthy in follow-up calls post seven days of his dosing and no adverse reaction was observed or reported, the Hyderabad-based company said.
"The volunteer passed away nine days after the dosing and preliminary reviews by the site indicate that the death is unrelated to the study dosing. We cannot confirm if the volunteer received the study vaccine or a placebo as the study is blinded," it added.
Madhya Pradesh Medico Legal Institute director Dr Ashok Sharma said the doctor who performed autopsy suspected that he died of poisoning. However, the exact cause of the death would be known from his viscera test, he added.
Poisoning. It may be sabotage to discredit the Indian made vaccine
I told this before to first to give the vaccines and start by giving to BJP-NDA leaders starting from PM Modi, HM Shah and the rest. Now the innocent citizens are dying for not following the sincere advice.
Whatever happens after vaccination is not due to vaccine. Accept and take vaccine.
Atleast now people should understand,"Say No to Vaccines.Be safe".
Vaccinate first all BJP ministers including Feku who allowed vaccination without completing clinical trials for Bio Tech. Lets them pay the price for their ill actions
That is why, it is Emergency approval. These are Pandemic times and and getting a vaccine is of paramount importance. Other vaccines, abroad, were also given Emergency approval, without getting Phase 3 results. So stop madling in a thing, about which this journo has little idea. Do you know, there is something as Phase 4 of drug development?
Ofcourse... After he took poison after taking vaccine.. Logic
Now watch Congress bhakths n jihadis dance in joy because. For them anything that shows India in bad light is a reason to celebrate.
Me and my entire family will take the Indian Vaccine when it is available. We trust our go nment. So will the large number of Indians who trust our doctors.
Actually PM Modi must not hurry for vaccines so soon let the most advance countries like U.S, U.K first tests these vaccines and give approval otherwise it is very risky and dangerous.
If it is a placebo, it is going to be disappointment to doubters.
In Russia all top govt officials took vaccine. Why Indian govt people in power not taking it? First leaders then public. simple!
Bharat bio was having trouble getting volunteers to test the vaccine so they are picking on poor and illiterate without their knowledge.
One person allegedly died after taking Pfizer vaccine.Do you dirty illiterate person ever heard that once 10 children died of measles vaccines but vaccination did not stop.
Sudden death after 9 days of vaccination can't be related to vaccine.
Doctor must do in depth analysis as this vaccine will be given to mass. Any risk will be like an atom bomb, will destroy masses
vaccine can't kill...at the most it will be ineffective. Don't jump to conclusions without vicera reports.
