Brazilian health authorities say a volunteer who participated in the third phase of coronary vaccine testing at Oxford University and the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca has died. The news agency Reuters writes about the matter.

The person is Brazilian, but nothing else has been told about him.

However, according to the Brazilian health authorities, the tests will continue. This has been recommended by an independent team of researchers.

In early September, AstraZeneca suspended the vaccine study for some time after one subject became ill. It is not known if this is a deceased person.

The coronation situation in Brazil is bad

Coronary vaccines are being developed around the world. The Sinovac vaccine developed in China has also been tested in Brazil.

Brazil has the highest number of deaths since the United States, more than 154,000. The infection has been confirmed in 5.2 million people.
