(LifeSiteNews) — The World Health Organization (WHO) is examining the link between serious hearing issues and COVID injections after receiving thousands of adverse event reports.
According to the WHO’s first newsletter of 2022, the various hearing issues reported in people after the reception of the COVID jabs have been: more than 3,000 reports of tinnitus (ringing in the ears), 153 reports of deafness, 227 reports of sudden hearing loss, and 63 cases of deafness unilateral (inability to hear out of one ear).
In all instances, the “observed” number of reports exceeded the number of reports the WHO “expected.”
While not all reports are investigated by the WHO, the ones that are become designated as an “Individual Case Study Report (ICSR),” and for tinnitus, 367 fit the WHO’s ICSR criteria. Out of those 367 cases under investigation, 26 percent of them were recorded as “serious,” with 9 percent being labeled “disabling/incapacitating.”
According to the WHO’s analysis of the data, 59 percent of the hearing loss cases had an onset period of zero to one day after vaccination, and “most cases were [in] young healthy adults with no comorbidities.”
The analysis further explains that the reason for the “young” age of those impacted by the side effects “reflects several countries’ prioritization of healthcare worker vaccination.”
Many of those suffering from tinnitus or deafness also reported several other side effects to the WHO database, including nausea, vertigo, dizziness, headache, and blurred vision.
Despite governments and so-called health authorities insisting that the experimental vaccines are “safe,” and in many cases mandating the novel shots, major adverse event reporting systems from around the world show that millions of injuries and tens of thousands of deaths have been reported after the jabs.
The FDA and CDC’s co-run database VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System), for example, has received over 26,000 reports of deaths and over one million injuries in relation to the COVID shots, which is more than all other vaccines combined since 1990.
While causation is not explicitly confirmed through the VAERS reporting system, neither can it be presumed that all side effects are reported. Indeed, one study in 2010 found that “fewer than 1% of vaccine injuries” are reported to VAERS, suggesting the actual numbers of deaths and injuries are significantly higher.
Even vaccine manufacturers have calculated at least a “fifty-fold underreporting of adverse events.”
