Top medical body ICMR has said Covid-19 vaccination did not increase the risk of unexplained sudden death among young adults in India. It added that past Covid-19 hospitalization, family history of sudden death and certain lifestyle behaviours increased the likelihood of unexplained sudden death.

The ICRM said, “In view of anecdotal reports of sudden unexplained deaths in India’s apparently healthy young adults, linking to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection or vaccination, we determined the factors associated with such deaths in individuals aged 18-45 years through a multicentric matched case–control study.”
