Young athletes are facing a serious problem that has been creating big problems lately. We could hear a lot of news talking about the heart problems of athletes, from football players Eriksen to Aguero and other famous athletes who have had great success in what they do.
Is the problem a sport that has reached such a level that players have become "robots" whose body cannot withstand so much effort, or is it still a problem in a vaccine that "anti-vaxers" believe is the cause of everything before.
We do not want to go into the nature of such problems, but it is obvious that a certain cause must exist. In July this year, a young Singaporean athlete (16) who practiced weightlifting collapsed after training he had after 5 days of receiving a second dose of Pfizer vaccine.
However, according to straitstimes, the young man trained with "very heavy weights", which could probably be the cause of the collapse. Such cases have happened before, and such things cannot be directly attributed to the vaccine, but the main reason is likely to be determined.
After he was hospitalized, the MOH spokesman said: "The preliminary diagnosis of his condition is an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Clinical and laboratory tests are in progress to understand the underlying cause," the spokesman said.
They also said they would work to find out what the main problem was. "All of the cases in the younger age group responded well to treatment and had recovered or were discharged well from the hospital," HSA said.
However, the authorities believe that vaccination should still be mandatory in order to stop COVID and to prevent the spread of the infection. "Despite low Covid-19 cases currently, explosive outbreaks with highly transmissible new variants are unpredictable, as shown in our recent experience with the Delta variant and similar experiences overseas."
However, they believe that the COVID vaccine has several advantages and that such cases are rare. However, they will continue to monitor the cases that are present and actively help "Vaccination is thus important to protect all individuals from Covid-19, even for young persons," the committee said.
"Overall, based on the data to date, the benefits of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines continue to outweigh the known risks in a pandemic." "HSA will continue to actively monitor the safety profile of the Covid-19 vaccines and relevant regulatory actions will be taken to safeguard public health when warranted."
