Uproar over surgery on a 4-month-old baby in New Zealand

New Zealand’s Health Agency has filed an appeal to the court for custody of a child. The child needs surgery as soon as possible due to heart-related problems. He will have to offer blood, but the child’s parents refuse to take blood. The reason for this is that blood donors are vaccinated against corona.

Heart valve disorder in the child

The child is only 4 months old. He has pulmonary valve stenosis. It is a valvular disorder of the heart in which the pulmonary valve that controls the flow of blood narrows. Also, the vanes inside the valve thicken or join together. In this situation, the patient needs an operation. Failure to do so may result in his death.

Doctors refuse to demand parents.

According to a New York Times report, the child’s mother insisted that “safe blood” be used for the operation. Father said that this was his last decision. His lawyer said that the parents had demanded such a blood donor from the health authorities, who has not got the corona vaccine.

However, New Zealand Health Service officials have rejected the parents’ demands. He says that vaccinated blood is also completely safe. There is no danger to the child from this. The agency does not discriminate between vaccinated and unvaccinated blood donors.

The matter reached the court, and the child’s condition is deteriorating.

On Tuesday, the High Court of Auckland heard the matter and reserved the decision. The next hearing will be on Wednesday. It will decide whether the child should be handed to the health agency for surgery. On behalf of the government, lawyer Paul White said that the child’s health is deteriorating with every heartbeat. This matter has become so big that now the eyes of the whole country are on it.

Experts said – parents are victims of wrong information

Health experts say that the child’s parents do not have the correct information related to the vaccine. They are giving wrong scientific logic in their argument. This highlights the misinformation and anti-vaccine agenda on the internet.

Many people who have not taken the corona vaccine for their child on the Internet are ready to donate blood. Parents have also traced 30 such donors. However, blood donation and operation can be made only after the court’s decision.
