Link Between Ramsay Hunt syndrome and COVID-19 Vaccines Has Not Been Established
Social media users have been speculating as to whether Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS), a rare neurological disorder, is caused by COVID-19 vaccines, after Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber revealed he had been diagnosed with the condition. While the disorder is not directly caused by COVID-19 vaccines, experts told Reuters that research of a possible link between the two has been carried out. No definitive link has been established to date. RHS can cause ear pain, a vesicular rash near the ear canal, and loss of motor function leading to one-sided facial paralysis. The majority of people who receive early treatment will make a full recovery.
