The parents of a 19-year-old student on Friday approached the Kerala High Court alleging that their daughter died due to the compulsory administration of the Covishield vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India. They sought Rs. 1 crore as compensation for the death of their only daughter.
In the petition, Sabu C. Thomas and his wife Jean George of Pathanamthitta submitted that their daughter Nova Sabu, an MA Literature student, was vaccinated with Covishield from a private hospital in Kochi. On the very next day, she fell unwell.
