Omicron subvariant BA2 is able to reinfect omicron recoverees

The case count in Denmark is dropping sharply as it has in the United States following the Omicron peak.  That's the story.

Her cardiac specialist confirmed she’s one of the very small number to have had the cardiac reaction. 

I posted a link in the long COVID thread just now. While sure may have had a rare reaction to the vaccine, and I'm sorry that happened, serious heart conditions post COVID are emerging as a significant health problem. That problem is cropping up in a different distribution of age groups than those without COVID.

Concerns raised about legitimacy of research linking vaccines and heart attacks

30 NOVEMBER 2021


A study found the risk of a group of patients having a heart attack within five years increased from 11% to 25% after they were given their mRNA Covid-19 vaccine.


Serious concerns have been raised as to the quality of the research. Its publisher notes it may contain “potential errors”.

See the action we’ve taken as a result of this fact check.

“What this research has shown is that markers associated with increasing the risk of heart attack and probably even progression of underlying heart disease in people who have already got some heart disease. There’s been a significantly increased risk from 11% at five years, the risk of heart attack, to 25%.”


A clip of health campaigner and cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra on GB News talking about claims linking the Covid-19 vaccines to heart attacks has gone viral on Twitter and been viewed at least one million times.

He did say the findings need to be replicated to confirm whether or not they are true, but what Dr Malhotra did not mention is that the journal which published an abstract of the research has issued an “expression of concern” about it, noting that it contains “potential errors” and “may not be reliable”.

What the research claims

The research claims to have measured various biomarkers (biological characteristics like blood pressure) before and after patients received their second mRNA Covid-19 vaccine dose (such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines).

It uses these biomarkers to calculate a “PULS score”, pre and post-vaccination, which it claims predicts the five-year risk of developing new acute coronary syndrome (ACS). ACS includes a range of conditions associated with reduced blood flow to the heart, including heart attacks.

The research claims that results from 566 patients showed the risk of developing ACS within five years, as measured by the PULS score, increased from 11% before vaccination to 25% after vaccination.

Circulation also says of the research paper that “the author is not clear that only anecdotal data was used,” which means there may be an element of selection bias, affecting the legitimacy results.

Additionally, the research has not been peer-reviewed.,from%20COVID%2D19.
