It further said that post-mortem for the fourth death is going on. The government further stated that 10 people were hospitalised so far after vaccination, out of which seven have been discharged.

"The post-mortem is ongoing," an official health ministry statement said referring to the death of a Telangana man, 42, who got a Covid jab on Tuesday morning and died early Wednesday morning after complaining of chest pain.

Preliminary findings suggest the death is unrelated to the vaccination, a health official said.

According to the post-mortem reports, the man in UP died due to cardio-pulmonary disease, while both the beneficiaries in Karnataka died due to myocardial infraction. Post-mortem of the Telangana resident is going on.

"Four (post Covid-shot) deaths have been reported from Uttar Pradesh (1), Karnataka (2) and Telangana (1). Three were because of heart-related events not related to the vaccine," a Health Ministry report said, adding that 10 people were hospitalized across states after today's vaccination drive.
