AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine trial on hold over safety issue
Al Jazeera, 10 Sep 2020
An “unexplained illness” in a British volunteer has brought trials for the one of the world's most promising coronavirus vaccines to a sudden halt.
The University of Oxford and the United Kingdom-based drug firm AstraZeneca say the delay is routine, but it is dimming hopes that a shot could be ready soon.
This comes on the same day that Britain's Prime Minister put new restrictions in place, warning they could be in force for months.
