Portuguese health worker found dead two days after receiving vaccine suffered heart attack

Sónia Azevedo, the apparently perfectly healthy Porto cancer hospital health worker found dead in bed two days after receiving her first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on New Year’s Day, suffered a heart attack. 

This is the result of the autopsy, explained over a month since the mother-of-two died (click here)

A preliminary autopsy insisted early in January that the death ‘did not establish any relationship with the Covid-19 vaccine’ (click here).

Say reports today, Ms Azevedo’s sudden death “provoked doubts and requests for explanations among family and friends because none of them knew of any health problems” suffered by Ms Azevedo.

Weeks since her death, the ‘definitive results’ of the autopsy have now been revealed, concluding death was caused by ‘acute myocardial infarction’, “commonly known as a heart attack”, writes Correio da Manhã.

Ms Azevedo’s family and friends are described as perplexed that it has taken this long to reveal the results of the autopsy, adds the paper.
