Mr Pruktichai Maksin, a lawyer, received the injection at Krabi Hospital last Tuesday (June 8) and died on Thursday (June 10).

Medical staff explained that the wall of Mr Pruktichai’s heart had thickened due to high blood pressure which in turn led to his death.

Mr Pruktichai’s wife, 55-year-old Rattana Klubching, believes that his death was a direct result of the vaccination as he was a fit and healthy man.

Mrs Rattana explained that her husband did not exhibit any unusual symptoms or reactions in the 30 minute period immediately after receiving the vaccine last Tuesday.

However, around 9pm the following day her husband complained of chest pains and was taken to Krabi Hospital where doctors examined him, took x-rays and administered medication to help dissolve blood clots.

Mr Pruktichai was kept in hospital overnight for observation and around 11am the following morning suffered a heart attack.

Medical staff tried to revive him but were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead shortly after. His body was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town for an autopsy.

“I believe that my husband’s death is because of the vaccine, as before this, he was healthy and strong,” said Mrs Rattana.

“Right now, I am collecting documents from the hospital in order to file for compensation with the National Health Security Office (NHSO),” she added.

Mr Pruktichai’s younger brother, Chamlong Maksin, explained that autopsy staff told him that the vaccine injection may have induced an irregular heartbeat in his brother and increased his blood pressure.

“I am waiting for the results of the examination from Krabi Hospital before discussing with relatives on how to proceed,” Mr Chamlong said.

Mr Pruktichai’s body was handed over to relatives to allow them hold his funeral at Wat Nai Chong in Thab Prik, Krabi, yesterday.

Just wondering...do you know if realistically Astra-Zeneca Company is compensating all these people who died because of this vaccine? I mean, have you already heard of any successful legal action conducted in any country against the Astra-Zeneca Vaccine? How long is this process and how long will these destroyed families have to wait before seeing some concrete compensation?

The AZ formula is being produced in Thailand by a pharmaceutical company that has never made a vaccine before and the ownership is  immune from full criticisms and disclosures by Article 112- which is why I'll wait for US made Pfizer or similar.

Where is this vaccine produced and who owns the company?

Several European countries stopped with administering AstraZeneca, due to possible  fatal risks as mentioned in article. Many fatal cases not see day light/ become public. And if becoming public than there is a shuffling in direction of 'underlaying conditions'. True or not true. But case closed. Avoid panic. Keep population calm.
