Was Covid the cause of Franklin Khan’s death?

Questions are being raised after the sudden passing of Energy Minister Franklin Khan, as the minister had received his COVID-19 vaccination at the Diego Martin Health Facility on Tuesday.

Khan, according to reports, seemed in good health in the days following the inoculation and his passing was described as sudden.

The exact cause of Khan’s death is not yet known, but he had a heart-related operation back in 2017 and underwent a “minor” procedure last year.

There was no advisory for patients with heart issue against taking the vaccine, but Director of the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) Dr Erica Wheeler recently defended vaccine safety and its use for cardiac patients.
