BANGKOK, April 2 (TNA) – Deputy Prime Minister and Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said that the Public Health Ministry was investigating the death of the assistant abbot of Wat Samphanthawong that happened a day after he had been vaccinated against COVID-19.

He said that it could be a coincidence because COVID-19 vaccines had passed many stages of safety verification by the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Medical Sciences before inoculation.

“People should not panic about the matter and should be vaccinated. However, please wait for the result of the autopsy on the cause of the death. It will be announced. I guarantee that the Public Health Ministry never conceals any information,” Mr Anutin said.
