PNP: COP'S DEATH CAUSED BY 'LEPTOSPIROSIS', NOT 'DENGVAXIA'
Contrary to the report of the Public Attorney's Office (PAO), the Philippine National Police (PNP) on Thursday clarified that the Quezon City cop did not die because of the controversial anti-Dengue vaccine Dengvaxia.
It is the PNP Chief himself who belied the report saying the policeman from QC Police District (QCPD) Station 6 died of leptospirosis and not caused by the Dengvaxia.
PNP Health Service Director Police Senior Superintendent Antonietta Langcauon also said, the policeman was not even a recipient of the vaccine.
Furthermore, the 50-year-old cop, was not qualified for the vaccine as the vaccine is given only to 45 years old and below.
Earlier, PAO Forensics Chief Erwin Erfe informed the public on social media that the cop probably denied due to Dengvaxia effects.
