A new study into autopsies in Germany has identified a link between cases of sudden and unexpected deaths and Covid shots, according to reports.
Renowned cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough has highlighted the study while raising the alarm over the apparent links between COVID-19 mRNA shots and soaring reports of sudden deaths from heart failure.
McCullough is among prominent cardiologists calling for a halt to the shots over concerns about their safety.
In a column on his Substack page, McCullough argues that the German study is the latest red flag to indicate that people are dying suddenly after receiving the vaccinations.
The team of researchers at the Heidelberg University Hospital conducted a study on the autopsies of 35 people who had died within 20 days of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
A total of 25, or 71%, had a final diagnosis that was consistent with a vaccine injury, according got the study, which was led by Constantin Schwab of the Institute of Pathology at Heidelberg University Hospital.
Those diagnoses include myocardial infarction, worsening heart failure, vascular aneurysm, pulmonary embolism, fatal stroke, and vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia.
Significantly, McCullough notes that five cases had acute myocarditis as the cause.
Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle (myocardium), according to the Mayo Clinic.
The inflammation can reduce the heart’s ability to pump blood.
Myocarditis can cause chest pain, shortness of breath, and rapid or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias).
Severe myocarditis weakens the heart so that the rest of the body doesn’t get enough blood.
Blood clots can form in the heart, leading to a stroke or heart attack.
McCullough notes that the German researchers’ biopsies of the heart muscle showed “patchy inflammation very similar to what was seen in the deltoid muscle where the mRNA vaccine was injected.”
“Inflammation in the heart was coincident with the same pattern of inflammation in the arm,” McCullough explained.
“Thus we can conclude death within a few days of vaccination is most likely due to the genetic product and that inflammation in the arm may be a surrogate for a similar process in the heart.”
McCullough argues that the public “is becoming increasingly disturbed with reports of death among the vaccinated.”
“It is natural to ask ‘was the death caused by vaccination?'” he wrote.
“The most definitive way of answering that question is with an autopsy.”
According to a report by WND, Dr. Marty Makary, a surgeon and public policy researcher at Johns Hopkins University, also weighed in on the study.
“This is a German study from a reputable group,” Makary wrote.
“It’s very hard to conduct this research in the U.S.
He noted that German researchers also were the source of a study showing that no healthy child 5-17 years of age died of COVID in the country.

Nevertheless, White House Covid “czar” Dr. Ashish Jha insists that it’s “crystal clear” that a healthy young male needs to take the bivalent “booster” shots, despite President Joe Biden declaring the pandemic to be “over.”
Makary argued that Jha “can’t tell you how many *healthy* children have ever died of Covid” and there is no bivalent trial data.
During a recent video interview with WND, McCullough cited peer-reviewed literature indicating the vaccines cause myocarditis.
He also includes a UK study that found about 100 fatal cases of myocarditis linked to the shots.
Along with Dr. Ross Walker of Sydney and Dr. Aseem Malhotra, McCullough is among three prominent cardiologists who have publicly stated the best explanation for the “sudden and unexpected” deaths and cardiac events in otherwise healthy people is the COVID-19 vaccines.
