South Korea lawmakers and government officials agreed to increase the amount of money offered to families of individuals who died following COVID-19 inoculation, The Korea Herald reports.
Families will be eligible for a payout “regardless of whether the vaccination itself was confirmed to be the cause of death,” the outlet states.
If a family member dies within 90 days of COVID-19 inoculation, families will be eligible to receive 30 million won ($22,500).
“Korea was able to achieve a higher inoculation rate compared with the rest of the world because people trusted the state and went to get vaccinated,” Rep. Park Dae-chul of the ruling party said in a meeting.
“In this regard, it is the state’s responsibility to tackle the blind spot in helping out those who fell victim to the vaccination policy.”
According to Statista, at least 90% of every adult age demographic in South Korea received the initial two-shot COVID-19 inoculation series.
South Korea’s overall initial two-shot series COVID-19 inoculation rate is approximately 86.65%.
SOUTH KOREA – Vaccine injury compensation.
Families will be eligible to get up to 30 £20,000 in ‘condolence’ money if a family member dies within 90 days of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, even if the cause of death cant be determined in an autopsy

South Korea: Government to compensate for all post Covid-19 vaccination deaths within 90 days of the jab, regardless of proof of causality https://t.co/sylBwGfo51

The Korea Herald reports:
In July, the Seoul Administrative Court ordered the KDCA not to refuse compensation to the family of a man who suffered deadly brain injuries six days after the vaccination in October 2021, when he was 34.
The court ruling showed that, as COVID-19 vaccines earned the emergency use authorization instead of a full-fledged approval, an epidemiological causality between the vaccination and his death cannot be ruled out.
KDCA chief Jee Young-mee argued that the court ruling neglects the recommendation of a group of experts regarding the case, and that they would appeal. The comment drew a slew of criticism from lawmakers who said the decision could undermine public trust in the government.
So far, Korea has recognized 11 types of side effects caused by COVID vaccinations, including anaphylaxis, myocarditis and pericarditis, and those who died of such symptoms or suffered severe injuries were eligible for 480 billion won in monetary compensation plus funeral costs. Those suffering less severe injuries could get 55 percent of the compensation.
Korea also lists 15 other symptoms, including abnormal uterine bleeding, transverse myelitis and Bell’s Palsy, as potential post-jab side effects. But those who suffered from any of the 15 were not eligible for compensation. Instead, they were only given condolence money of up to 100 million won in case of death.
“Nearly 30 percent of some 96,000 complaints regarding vaccine side effect claims have been accepted by the government as of August,” the outlet noted.

The experimental COVID-19 inoculations are one of our generation’s biggest lessons in why you should NEVER trust government.
In a recent interview, former NIAID Director Anthony Fauci finally admitted the COVID-19 shots can cause myocarditis.
