For most of us, COVID-19 vaccines don’t cause us many issues apart from the side effects that go away by themselves after a few days.
And although some people get hit by the vaccine harder than others, there are also cases where things that happen to patients are unrelated to the vaccines and just an unfortunate coincidence.
This was apparently the case for one woman, who passed away earlier this month.
Woman Passed Away Due To Heart Failure
In a statement released by the National University Heart Centre, Singapore (NUHHC) and National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) yesterday (26 January), it was clarified that a woman who had passed away after her vaccination had died due to heart failure, and not the COVID-19 vaccine.
Previously, posts circulated across social media platforms claimed that Ms Christina Rodrigues Seah, 39, had been diagnosed with heart issues as a result of receiving the Pfizer mRNA COVID-19 vaccine last year.
It was also further mentioned afterwards that the heart issues caused by the vaccine eventually led to her passing.
However, NUHCS and NHCS refuted this claim in their post, emphasising that “The patient did not report feeling unwell nor had any allergic reaction after vaccination for both doses in April 2021” and that “At the time, COVID-19 vaccination was not assessed to be a direct cause of her heart failure”.
Condition and Cause of Death
The statement also mentioned that Ms Seah underwent a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) heart scan in September. The results suggested that idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy was the underlying cause of her condition.
Idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy refers to disease of the heart muscle.
After discussing her treatment options, Ms Seah obtained a second opinion and scheduled her next appointment with NHCS for January 2022 in order for her to have time to consider her options.
Unfortunately, she passed away one day before the follow-up appointment.
“The case was referred to the Coroner and investigations showed that the cause of death was dilated cardiomyopathy,” the statement concluded.
According to NHCS and NUHCS, Ms Seah’s family has been contacted and their concerns have been addressed.
