Update 28 June 2021: An Expression of Concern has just been published concerning the article by Walalch, Aukema and Klement! I’ve added the text at the end of this post.
As Leonid Schneider reports in the comments to this post, a retraction is on its way. Just now (28 June) an Expression of Concern has been published, here is the text:
The journal is issuing this expression of concern to alert readers to significant concerns regarding the paper cited above .(https://www.mdpi.com/2076-393X/9/7/705)
Serious concerns have been raised about misinterpretation of the data and the conclusions.
The major concern is the misrepresentation of the COVID-19 vaccination efforts and
misrepresentation of the data, e.g., Abstract: “For three deaths prevented by vaccination
we have to accept two > inflicted by vaccination”. Stating that these deaths linked to vaccination efforts is incorrect and distorted.
We will provide an update following the conclusion of our investigation. The authors
have been notified about this Expression of Concern.
