A 49-year-old nurse from the Zwettl State Hospital, Austra died on Saturday shortly after receiving a Covid-19 vaccination from Astra Zeneca.

Iran PressEurope: In order to clarify the exact cause and a possible connection, an autopsy will be carried out at the Vienna General Hospital, confirmed Bernhard Jany of the Lower Austrian State Health Agency on Saturday in a report by the Niederösterreichische Nachrichten (“NÖN”).

A 30-year-old colleague of the deceased was receiving medical treatment after the vaccination, reported two Viennese daily newspapers online on Saturday afternoon.

According to Jany, the employee is an in-patient in the internal department at the State Hospital in Zwettl. However, she is currently not receiving intensive care.

“Until a connection can not be ruled out with certainty, vaccinations with the active ingredient of Astra Zeneca must be suspended with immediate effect,” demanded FPÖ federal party leader Norbert Hofer by broadcast.

In particular, the approval of the vaccine for people aged 65 and over on Friday posed a danger. “The health minister must act immediately and no longer have Astra Zeneca vaccinated until the nurse’s autopsy result is available,” Hofer stated.

The Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) announced that a result of the investigation can be expected in ten to 14 days at the earliest.
