NEW YORK || As the world waits with bated breath on a medical breakthrough in the fight against the dreaded Coronavirus, the vaccine trials at the Oxford University suffered a major setback on Wednesday. According to reports the ongoing human trial has been put on hold following complaints of side effects on the volunteer's body.
The UK pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca has halted the third and final phase of clinical trials, information says as a volunteer's body saw serious side effects during the vaccine's human trial.
