Deaths post COVID-19 vaccine ; DDGHS clarifies !
Health authorities said a proper investigation will be carried on the two deaths reported in Gampaha to ascertain whether the deaths occurred as a result of the COVID-19 vaccine or not.
Deputy Director General of Health Services, Dr. Hemantha Herath provided an explanation for the death of two individuals from Gampaha who passed away after receiving the vaccine when journalists queried whether the deaths were due to the vaccine.
Dr. Herath maintained that it could not be ruled as 'deaths caused by the vaccine' as yet and will be only treated as 'deaths following the vaccine'.
However, we are carrying out in-depth investigation on the matter.
