A 63 years old man died two days after he got inoculated with Sinovac CoronaVac COVID19 vaccine in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong started its COVID19 public vaccination program on 26 Feb 2021, and this man got his inoculation on the very first day with Sinovac CoronaVac COVID19 vaccine. Two days later this person brought himself to the emergency room complaining acute shortness of breath with cough, but succumbed a few hours later after deteriorating rapidly.
Although the authority preliminarily considered that the event and the vaccination did not have direct causal association, it is noticeable that the direct cause of his death was caused by a heart attack and respiratory failure triggered by excessive fluid in the lungs, which is cytokine storm.
Most people who contact SARS-CoV-2 virus do not show COVID19 symptoms, which is severe cough, runny nose, breath difficulties.
However SARS-CoV-2 virus could affect immunocompromised people.
SARS-CoV-2 virus could trigger an excessive inflammation reaction, which is almost like a sudden runny nose(cytokine storm), and cause acute respiratory distress syndrome(ARDS), which means suddenly hard to breathe.
It is very unfortunate for this 63 years old man, however recent science shows there is 100% success solution for cytokine storm and gives hope.

American researchers from University of South Carolina administered cannabis ingredient THC to mice suffering from cytokine storm and acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Scientists discovered THC treatment significantly suppressed the inflammatory cytokines, and led 100% survival of mice induced acute respiratory distress syndrome(ARDS).
