A new study produced by the same Oxford University faculty who developed the AstraZeneca vaccine claim that the risk of Blood Clots is "considerably higher" in Covid-19 patients than those that have had their controversial jab.
The paper claimed that although there was an increased risk of having a blood clot after receiving the first doses of the vaccine, it was much greater in someone who had tested positive for COVID-19.
The researchers, make a point of saying that they are independent from the Oxford team who developed the AstraZeneca vaccine, but their findings are certain to take the heat off their colleagues who have come under increasing criticism for the use of unlicensed Gene therapy techniques as a 'vaccine'. Now independent researchers sharing the same coffee machine have written a paper that suggests it's better to take their colleagues creation than run the risk of catching Covid.
Fears over blood clots have led to the restricted use of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine in a number of countries. The researchers, writing in the British Medical Journal, found for short time intervals after the first does there are increased risks of some blood, or blood-vessel, related events leading to hospitalisation or death.
But the paper appears to be little more than cognitive bias. It uses the same assumption as for all covid deaths; that every death following a positive covid result must be caused by the virus. With this basic statistical trick, you can attribute anything as a covid death. A positive test result, from a process that we know doesn't work, and a subsequent death could be attributed to Covid, including car crash deaths. From this starting point you can 'discover' anything you want.
The paper fails to properly adjust for age, time, location, other illnesses or any of the other robust criteria that should be applied, it's little more than an infomercial for the vaccine. There is clear, overwhelming evidence that the vaccine causes blood clotting, but crucially, in patients who overwhelmingly wouldn't suffer from them normally. The only way that any death can be properly discovered is by autopsy, not by academics and spreadsheets.
