Cases of post-vaccination cardiac inflammation in the US could be linked to interaction with another microorganism

Cases of heart inflammation tentatively linked to the coronavirus vaccine, which led to an emergency meeting of the US CDC's vaccine control group, could be the result of a microorganism known as Enterovirus .

Some experts have raised the possibility, but the topic is still debated in the scientific community.

Last week, the CDC reported that 275 people aged 16 to 24 who received Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines reported symptoms of heart inflammation known as myocarditis or pericarditis. About 12 million people in that age group have received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

According to the CDC, no more than about 100 cases of heart inflammation should normally occur in 12 million young adults. In response, the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices announced that it will hold an emergency meeting on Friday to look into the matter, because the topic, while not shocking, is still present and to be studied carefully.

Enteroviruses are a family of around 100 viruses, and a subgroup known as Coxsackieviruses has been linked to myocarditis and pericarditis in young adults. It tends to spread during the summer and early autumn. However, even in the presence of this virus cases of myocarditis are rare and the symptoms are very slight or absent, so it is difficult to have a case history relating to these infections. There is therefore the possibility that the infections are therefore due to the Enterovirus and not the vaccine.

“These cases may be overlooked. Tests for enteroviruses are not common and only a fraction of cases are likely to be diagnosed, ”said Charles Gerba, professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of Arizona. At the same time, other doctors instead directly associate myocarditis with the presence of the vaccine, such as Dr. George Rutheford of the University of California. Maybe, in the end, they could both be right: who has ever studied the effects of the vaccine on the presence of other viruses other than coronavirus? Such research would take time, an element that has been completely overlooked.
