AstraZeneca resumes COVID-19 vaccine trials

Sky News Australia – Sep 13, 2020

AstraZeneca has announced stage three vaccine trials backed by the Australian government will resume after being paused for a few days when one volunteer suffered an adverse reaction.

Oxford-based researchers for AstraZeneca will now continue the study after efforts were voluntarily paused when one participant out of roughly 18,000 experienced side-effects.

The Australian government says it has reached a deal with AstraZeneca to buy enough vaccines for the whole country’s population if the trials prove successful.
