    Phang Nga man dies after Phuket Sinovac vaccination injection

    PHUKET: A 43-year-old man from Phang Nga has died after suffering chest pains and a heart attack on Monday night after receiving his first Sinovac COVID-19 vaccination injection at Phuket airport on Sunday (May 23).

    Phang Nga health officials yesterday said they were continuing their investigation into the man’s death.


    Speaking at Phang Nga Hospital, Phang Nga Provincial Public Health Office Deputy Chief Dr Wiset Munam, Phang Nga Hospital Director Dr Thiprat Tonsakulprasert and hospital doctor Dr Peerawit Pinpitak explained that they had requested the man’s family to allow an autopsy be performed by medical experts in Surat Thani.

    However, the family had already requested the man’s body be returned so that he could be buried in accordance with Muslim funeral rites.


    Samples taken from the man’s body are to be examined through laboratory tests and experts from the Epidemiology Division, Department of Disease Control, had already arrived to assist the investigation, they said.


    Phang Nga health officials are also coordinating with the Phuket Provincial Public Health Office (PPHO) to investigate the details of the vaccine that was injected, they added.


    Dr Peerawit noted that another man had been admitted to Phang Nga Hospital after receiving a COVID vaccination injection. The man, 52 years old, already suffered from high blood pressure, he said.


    The man is now receiving treatment at Vachira Phuket Hospital, Dr Peerawit said.


    The first symptom identified was that the man was weak in his left leg. An X-ray examination and blood tests have found nothing abnormal, so the man is to undergo an MRI examination at Surat Thani Hospital today (May 26), he added.


    Phang Nga Provincial Public Health Office Deputy Chief Dr Wiset maintained that Phang Nga officials were not being silent about the 43-year-old man’s death or other issues regarding health effects from people receiving COVID vaccination injections.


    “We will proceed with determination to identify the cause of death as soon as possible by questioning witnesses as well as [considering] the results of laboratory examinations,” he said.


    “In addition, we will investigate the vaccines administered to the deceased and those with side effects, and further detailed studies will be conducted with the relevant departments at the district level, and the ministry will send this information to the Central Vaccine Committee to continue their investigation,” he added.


    “For people who have registered to receive the vaccine, do not be afraid. If you have a medical condition or suffer anxiety, please consult a doctor or health worker at a public health facility near you,” Dr Wiset said.


    The trio of Phang Nga health officials yesterday confirmed that so far the primary cause of death of the 43-year-old man has been attributed to “acute myocardial infarction” (commonly called a heart attack) and that “fatal medical conditions” had been identified.


    The man, now identified as Winai Hemin, a resident of Tambon Thai Chang in Phang Nga Town, had suffered high cholesterol, his wife Ms Poranee Ngamsap, 32, told reporters.


    Ms Poranee said that her husband woke in the middle of the night suffering severe chest pains.


    He was rushed to Phang Nga Hospital, where medical staff worked urgently to try to save his life, but were unable to, she said.


    Ms Poranee said that doctors had given the cause of death as a heart attack, but that she and her family believed that the cause of death was more likely from the COVID-19 vaccine because her husband had received a vaccination injection just one day earlier.


    Ms Poranee said that her husband was a healthy person and liked to play sports, but also said that he had high cholesterol.


    Mr Winai worked delivering dried seafood between Phang Nga and several southern provinces. He received his first Sinovac COVID vaccination injection at Phuket airport on Sunday afternoon, she said.


    “Before the injection he was anxious and his blood pressure had risen. He had to wait about an hour after the injection [before being allowed to leave] and he returned home to Phang Nga on Monday morning,” Ms Poranee said.




    “He had a mild fever, and he took some medicine and even drove to deliver products to Phuket. When he came home, he still had a mild fever and was feeling exhausted,” she added.


    “In the middle of the night, he said he felt that he was very hot. He asked why he was so hot, and he told me to read the post-vaccine advice about what it was, and then he said that his chest was sore on the inside.


    “He was frightened and hurried to call his relatives to take himt to Phang Nga Hospital, but when he arrived at the hospital, doctors said that he had no pulse and that they had worked for almost an hour to save his life,” she added.


    “We are confident that the cause of death is definitely due to the COVID-19 vaccination,” Ms Poranee said.


    “The doctors asked if his body could be taken for a thorough autopsy. However, the family did not wish this because the body has to be taken for Islamic rituals,” she added.


    LOCAL SENTIMENT


    Phuket officials have yet to publicly recognise Mr Winai’s death.


    Meanwhile, officials, community leaders and administrative staff responsible for organising the mass vaccination rollout at Phuket airport told The Phuket News yesterday that they had not heard of news of his death.


    Worawit Sisakukham, Village Headman of Moo 6, Baan Mai Khao, stationed at the vaccination area at the X-Terminal building, said that much of most people’s concerns yesterday were still focussed on people from outside Phuket being allowed to receive a COVID vaccination in Phuket.


    “Everyone must be compassionate because the vaccine in Phuket is limited,” he said.


    “In the past, Phuket allowed everyone to register for vaccination freely [not true ‒ Ed], but there was a problem with some people coming to Phuket to be vaccinated. Many who travel by private car come to register and secretly mixed with Phuket people to be vaccinated along with large groups,” he said.


    Following provincial officials suspending the vaccination of people not registered as living in Phuket, the number of people arriving to be vaccinated at the airport had fallen, he noted.


    “It was very effective because normally at least 2,000 people a day would register to be vaccinated here, but after the announcement the number of people fell to about 1,000 people a day,” he said.


    Sentiment against outsiders remained high yesterday.


    Mai Khao Tambon Chief (Kamnan) Olean Maliwan said that people had expressed concern about one foreigner who did not live in Phuket but regularly travelled to the island for business had been granted permission by officials to receive a COVID vaccination even after the latest announcement.


    Regardless, some people at the airport vaccination centre said they only wanted to focus on allowing Phuket to reopen to receiving foreign tourists from July 1.


    One woman, who asked to be called only “Nang Ying”, said that many people felt the same.


    “I want to get vaccinated because I want Phuket [officials] to open the island as quickly as possible so that everything will be back to the same. Tourists will return to Phuket to improve the economy of Phuket,” she said.


    All people who The Phuket News spoke to at the airport yesterday said they were not afraid of receiving their vaccination injection, saying it was neither scary nor painful. There may be a slight pain like a normal injection, was the common consensus.

    In this instance they should deny the family's request and perform an autopsy.

    Very amusing the way these morons latch onto any "pre-existing" condition in order to exculpate the Chink vaccine, the only one currently available to the Thai because of incompetence.

    So, in the tiny little minds of the Thai high cholesterol could account for sudden death from a vaccine?

    Well, that's half the fucking planet fucked, innit.

    Or being "overweight".

    Or having" high blood pressure".

    Health ministry defends Sinovac vaccine, cites Phuket study


    PHUKET: Public health permanent secretary Dr Kiattiphum Wongrajit has stepped forward to defend the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine, saying that a study by the Public Health Ministry on patients in Phuket found that the vaccine was 83.3% effective at reducing infections and the severity of the disease.

    Dr Kiattiphum said the study was conducted on 386 patients in Phuket with COVID-19, noted a report by the Bangkok Post.


    The study found that six patients who had already received two doses of the Sinovac vaccine did not develop a lung infection, he said.


    Only four of 31 people who became infected after receiving their first vaccination injection did have a lung infection, he added, said the report.


    A separate study was also conducted on 1,366 high-risk people who had been quarantined for 14 days.


    The study found that the Sinovac vaccine was 73.1% effective at reducing the risk of infection among first-dose recipients, Dr Kiattiphum said.


    The study found the Sinovac vaccine reduced the risk of infection by 83.3% in patients, he added.


    According to the report, Dr Kiattiphum said that some 22% of people in Phuket had received two injections of “COVID-19 vaccine”, at this stage presumed to be the Sinovac vaccine, while 45% had received their first injection.


    However, at last report by the Phuket office of the Public relations Department (PR Phuket), as of May 21, 162,225 people in Phuket had received at least one COVID vaccination injection.


    The PR Phuket report noted that the number of vaccination injections at that time amounted to 34% of the target 466,587 to be administered for the island to achieve its goal of vaccinating 70% of the island’s population.


    PR Phuket and the Phuket Provincial Public Health Office (PPHO) have not released any updates to the number of people in Phuket to have received vaccination injections since that report, posted on May 22.


    Meanwhile, Dr Kiattiphum said that as of May 17, there were no new infections in Phuket among people who had received two doses of teh Sinovac vaccine, said the Bangkok Post report.


    Dr Kiattiphum warned that people should still wear masks, practise social distancing, and wash their hands frequently and maintain personal hygiene even if they have received two doses of the vaccine.


    On containing COVID-19 in various clusters in upcountry areas, public health authorities moved quickly to detect infections and set up field hospitals to handle them. Dr Kiattiphum said 70% of people will be vaccinated by October, said the Bangkok Post report.


    The government’s committee on national tourism policy earlier this month confirmed a plan to reopen Phuket to foreign visitors. That is due to begin on July 1, the report added.


    News of the study promoting the effectiveness of the Sinovac vaccine follows a 43-year-old man from Phang Nga dying of a heart attack one day after receiving his first Sinovac injection at Phuket airport.


    The man was known to have high cholesterol, but was reported by his wife to be otherwise healthy and said to enjoy playing sport.


    Health officials are investigating the man’s death.

    untreated high cholesterol could indicate a build up of atheromatous plaque in one or more of his coronary arteries, resulting in a decreased blood flow to the cardiac muscle during exercise when the heart needs to beat faster, hence the heart attack.

    nothing to do with the chinese shit he was vaccinated with.

    Thanks Dr. Oz, but that's generally too young for an Asian to have a fatal myocardial infarction.

    They need to confirm it with an autopsy, but it sounds like the mussies will have had him in the ground by sunset.

    he woke up with fucking chest pains you silly quack.
    he had a heart attack. end of.

    he probably smoked a pack of krong thip every day, his diet probably consisted of deep fried fatty meats and seafood three times a day all washed down with cheap thai alcohol. hes lucky he managed to make it to 43.

    Just a cheap shot against the sinovac. But they should do some tests with all the vaccines and the unhealthiest people. Maybe one is better tailored for unhealthy slobs and that would be useful information

    People die every day for many different reasons, If they are going to vaccinate 70% of the people, some of the ones who die, will do so after they receive the vaccine. Just because we have covid 19, and vaccines for it, it does not mean that all the other problems with life will take the day off.

    I cant wait for the story where the elderly expat fell of the balcony after receiving the vaccine says the wife's "brother".
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    watching this thread for the reason that there is almost zero coverage of negative effects of vaccines. Having seen my posts disappear on other forums within a day makes me believe there is a strong effort to highlight only the positive side of vaccines. If they work, It should be a no brainer to dismiss the negative effects with proper scientific proof.

    Good science must promote a healthy discussion on the topic. If science turns into politics....

    I once donated a pint of blood to a colleague who never smoked or drank, cycled to work every day and was having a triple bypass in his mid forties. Two of his brothers died before they reached 50. There are many cases of hereditary heart disease.

    So we don't know. Hence the need to do an autopsy.

    It has been widely reported, which is how you know about it and how it appears in this forum, even though there is no proof that the death was caused by the vaccine, only that he was vaccinated before he had a heart aback and died. I bet he also showered in the day before he dies, and probably took a shit, and a thousand other things yet you are quick to jump on the vaccine, is it possible that the antivaxxers are looking for a bit of bias confirmation?
    Did you know that many more people have heart attack's From taking a shit than they do from Covid vaccine. But if you stopped taking a shit you would be full of shit.
    Which might explain why the antivaxxers are full of shit.

    That's why it's important to do an autopsy and confirm the death was not related to the vaccine.

    Otherwise it perpetuates the looney myth that they know vaccines kill and they are covering it up.

    There are many such bad news (not always found on MSM), e.g.:

    Model Stephanie Dubois Suffers Blood Clot, Dies Days After Getting COVID Shot
    5/25/21

    A British fashion model based in Cyprus suffered a blood clot and died days after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in Paphos, a health official said Monday.

    Stephanie Dubois, 39, had no underlying health conditions according to health officials at the hospital in the capital Nicosia, where she was hospitalized on May 14 after having breathing issues, reported The Times, a U.K. national newspaper.

    Dubois—who was living in the Tsada, a village just outside Paphos, for the past five months—had a "serious thrombotic episode" after receiving the first dose of the vaccine on May 6, The Times reported.

    The Cyprus Mail, a local newspaper, reported the fashion model suffered a brain hemorrhage and was in a coma before she died Saturday afternoon.

    Her death will be investigated by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), said a Cypriot health service spokesperson, Charalambos Charilaou, The Times reported.

    In a May 6 Facebook post, Dubois revealed she had received the first dose of the vaccine, noting: "And now I feel horrendous...pizza and bed for me."

    I agree with others, without autopsy you can't say the vaccine caused the death, correlation Vs causality.

    IMO this way of thinking should also be used regarding covid deaths, as detecting the virus in the body doesn't necessarily mean the virus caused the death, especially when the deceased was very old and/or had health issues.

    I did see one moron quoting VAERS to prove the vaccine was killing people. The first person on the list was terminally ill.

    Facts don't stop these antivax twats yapping away.

    It's an extremely strange version of confirmation bias when you offer a source that completely undermines your opinion.

    Which science usually does with these fucking retards.

    They read them in a twisted way, keeping points that support their view (e.g one person died after being vaccinated / vaccine efficiency is 90%) and ignoring/toning down the parts that don't (e.g the deceased had serious health issues before being vaccinated / vaccines don't prevent you from catching the virus and passing it on to others, it only reduces the seriousness of the disease).
