Federal health regulators in America are pushing a quick pause on the consumption of the J & J (Johnson & Johnson) Coronavirus vaccine after acquiring reports of potentially dangerous blood clotting.
FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the United States CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) released a joint statement early Tuesday declaring the agencies are examining 6 instances of a rare and dangerous blood clot happening in ladies between eighteen and forty-eight years old within six to thirteen days after taking Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot vaccine.
J & J vaccine allegedly caused blood clot
The statement said that above 6.8 million vaccine doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine had been pushed in the United States. Moreover, the New York Times said that one lady has died, and another lady in the western Nebraska state has been dealing with the critical condition in the hospital.
On Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that it will conduct an emergency conference of its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices to further investigate these severe cases and assess their potential significance.
CDC will convene a meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on Wednesday to further review these cases and assess their potential significance. FDA will review that analysis as it also investigates these cases.

J & J’s vaccine is going to be the 2nd vaccine that is facing the blood clotting disaster in infections after getting vaccine shots. Furthermore, many countries have released new measures over the use of Oxford-AstraZeneca’s Coronavirus vaccine as the EU’s (European Union) medical official announced a relation between the COVID-19 vaccine and fatal blood clotting.
India appointed at second spot
At the same time, a fresh record of Coronavirus infections in a single day has appointed India at the 2nd spot behind America for the most confirmed COVID-19 infections across the world.
According to Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Resource Center, India reported 168,912 fresh confirmed cases on Monday, which pushes the country to 13,527,717 total cases.
The novel surge happens with the severe lack of COVID-19 vaccine in several Indian states, along with pitcher festival, or the annual Kumbh Mela, at the Ganges River, where all Hindus bathe to seek forgiveness of their sins, ramping up threats it could turn into a super-spreader occasion.
The country lies at 4th spot in total COVID-19 deaths that are 170,179 fatalities, adding 904 deaths in a single day on Monday. Besides this, the country has approved the use of the Sputnik V Coronavirus vaccine manufactured by Russia.
On Monday, Tedros Adhanom (the World Health Organization head) blamed complacency, confusion, and inconsistency in public health guidelines and their application for 7 consecutive weeks of surging Coronavirus cases and 4 consecutive weeks of growing number of deaths, after starting the year with 6 weeks of decreasing numbers.
