The family members of the deceased are however of the opinion that the cause of the sudden death is the Covid 19 vaccine whereas the authorities said that the person might have died due to a heart attack as he had a history of heart disease since 2016 and was not taking any medicines.

He was declared brought dead at the SSG Hospital, Aiyer said.

Aiyer further said if a patient does not declare his medical history, and is on medicines, then he should not be vaccinated as per the general guidelines.

“As far as Jignesh is concerned, he had stopped taking medicines despite having a history of heart disease. On the basis of his medical history, we shall be able to get a better picture” he said.

Dr. Devesh Patel, VMCs medical officer of health said that the post mortem report is awaited which will ascertain the exact cause of Solanki’s death.

“The patient had a history of heart disease since 2016. His heart was weak, but he was not taking medicines, as his relatives told us” he said.
