On the wee hours of Saturday, actor Vivekh who predominantly appeared in Tamil films, died in the hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest. On the morning of Friday, an unconscious Vivekh was brought to the SIMS hospital in Chennai. He reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest due to a 100% blockage in heart vessel. It is reported that the actor was revived and underwent an emergency coronary angiogram followed by angioplasty. He was then put on Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation support to circulate blood through an artificial lung back into the bloodstream.
In a way of clearing the air on whether Vivekh suffered cardiac arrest due to the COVID 19 vaccine shot he took on Thursday, Dr. Raju Sivasamy, vice president of SIMS hospital said that Vivekh’s condition was not related to the vaccine he took. “It took nearly an hour for the doctors to remove the block. He was then put on an ECMO. His is an acute coronary syndrome with cardiogenic shock and not related to the vaccine,” Dr. Raju Sivasamy said and confirmed that Vivekh wasn’t infected with COVID 19 virus.
