Clinical trials of Covid-19 vaccines re-started after brief safety pause

The Clinical trials of one of the most advanced experimental Covid-19 vaccines have been re-started after a brief safety pause.

The world’s hopes for a reprieve from the pandemic were dealt a blow earlier in the week when pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca and Oxford University announced a voluntarily pause in their vaccine trial after a UK volunteer developed an unexplained illness.

However, the trial was given the all clear by British regulators following a safety review.

The global death toll from the coronavirus has risen over 916,000 with 28.5 million infections.

A worldwide race to develop a vaccine is underway with nine companies already in late-stage, Phase 3 trials.
