LABOULAYE, ARGENTINA – Ronald Biglione, a football player with Deportivo Club Independencia in Argentina’s General Levalle league, has died a week after being diagnosed with blood clots. The footballer experienced multiple health problems shortly after his second dose. He was under advanced treatment for 2 weeks at the Italian Hospital of Córdoba but with little to no improvement. Biglione’s partner, Paulina Carrara, was the first to confirm the diagnosis to Argentinian news outlet Nexos del Sur.
The Regional Football League was suspended for the weekend following news of his death. The president of the league, Sandro Aguilera, said:
“With such sad and terrible news, football goes into the background. On behalf of all the sports teams that make up the organization, we express our sorrow at the death of Biglione. Rest in peace, dear friend of us all!”
Media outlets initially reported that he was suffering from a “rare disease” at the time of his death.
It was later revealed that the cause of his death was actually ITP (thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura) resulting from his second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. ITP is a blood disorder in which blood clots form in small blood vessels throughout the body.
Vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia has been widely reported in medical literature in the wake of vaccine campaigns against the novel COVID-19 disease.
The news came at the same time as Argentinian football star Sergio Aguero was diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia – an irregular heartbeat after suffering heart problems during his home debut for FC Barcelona against Alaves. The striker is out for a minimum of 3 months.Please consider supporting by sharing or making a donation.
