A Nigerian emigrant in the U.S, Jummai Nache who suffered from blood clots after taking her second shot of Pfizer COVID-19 has had both her legs amputated, and will also have both hands amputated due to the complications.
Jummai, who was working as a medical assistant in a clinic in Minneapolis and was instructed to take the COVID-19 vaccine, migrated to the US with her husband, Philip Nache some years back, working with the Southern Baptists to plant churches among the African communities living in Minneapolis.
According to her husband, after she received her second Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine on February 1, 2021 she started to experience chest pain at work.
“Three days after the chest pains I took her to Urgent Care on February 6, 2021. After the check-up, EKG and other tests, the doctor said there was nothing wrong with her chest and every test showed she was okay.
“She took a covid-19 test and the next day was confirmed positive. Jummai and I were shocked when we received the result that she was covid-19 positive because she had not manifested any symptom before taking the shot. But we later accepted that perhaps, the virus and the vaccine together contributed to the adverse reaction on her body based on the report of the Infectious Disease physician that Jummai was asymptomatic.
“So Jummai followed the CDC guidelines but then a few days later she ended up at Fairview ER and then was transferred to U of M medical center. The next day, 2/14/21 the doctor called and told me that her heart was deteriorating, her oxygen levels and blood pressure were low and she needed to be put on a ventilator. I gave approval for them to proceed with the ventilator as needed.
Philip said after consultation, Infectious Disease Dr considered the test results, Jummai’s condition, the timeline of the administered vaccine and the onset of covid 19, realizing the vaccine might have caused the adverse reaction.
“The consequences of the adverse event are as follows: 1. Arterial blood clot; 2. Respiratory distress—ventilator; 3. Cardiomyopathy; 4. Anemia; 5. Damage to fingers of both hands and toes of both feet; 6 Ischemia; 7. MIS-Multiple Inflammatory Syndrome.
He said after going back and forth with the CDC, they decided to meet to deliberate with many experts around the country in which about 70-80 doctors met on a virtual call to discuss Jummai’s case.
“About 8 weeks after the meeting the CDC sent us a letter of their conclusions which stated that Jummai was infected with MIS-A and covid-19, but they cannot conclude whether the covid-19 vaccine contributed for now.
“On one occasion, the doctor called and told me that Jummai could die at any moment, but God preserved my wife’s life in a miraculous way in response to all the prayers of the church.
“He has continued to do amazing things in her life, to which we testify. Three weeks ago, the cardiologist told us that Jummai’s heart is 100% healed. By God’s grace, this goes against the initial report which was that her heart would never be the same.
“To God be the glory! I have also appreciated God’s grace of healing her from the life-threatening impact of the vaccine/Covid-19 destruction, but it has required high risk surgeries for amputation of both legs (below the knees).
“When those are healed, she is yet to undergo amputations at both hands. My experience on this journey has been so difficult but I can’t imagine the excruciating pain mentally, physically and emotionally that my wife is going through.
“She would have one challenge, and we will thank God as overcomers’, and then the devil will present the next challenge and we will overcome yet again. Time and again, challenge after challenge.
