Dengvaxia-linked deaths may hit 100 -- Public Attorney’s Office

November 05, 2018

Forensic experts of the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO)  fear the deaths linked to the Dengvaxia vaccine would hit the 100 mark before the year ends.

The PAO forensic team has recently conducted examinations on five other Dengvaxia recipients -- Angelito Amiel C. Panugan Jr., Theresa Mae Romano, Baron Rock, Jayson Miranda and King Martin Luther Ancheta.

There were already 96 Dengvaxia recipients whose cadavers had undergone forensic analysis while two other cadavers are scheduled for examination.

PAO said 10 more criminal complaints  were filed before the Department of Justice (DoJ) over the anti-dengue vaccine scandal.
