The risk of contracting blood clots is much higher for Covid-19 patients than from vaccines, according to a study released on Thursday. The rare blood clotting known as cerebral venous thrombosis, or CVT, occurred at a rate of 39 per million Covid 19 patients, according to researchers at the University of Oxford, the same university that helped develop the AstraZeneca vaccine. Firstly, Covid-19 markedly increases the risk of CVT, adding to the list of blood clotting problems this infection causes.
