By BBN Staff: On Wednesday, a chief scientist from the World Health Organization (WHO) explained that the safety of a prospective COVID-19 vaccine comes “first and foremost.”
WHO reportedly paused a trial of a leading candidate from AstraZeneca (AZN.L) due to concerns over side effects, Reuters reports.
An effective vaccine is yet to be introduced while many clinical trials continue.
“Just because we talk about speed…it doesn’t mean we start compromising or cutting corners on what would normally be assessed,” Dr. Soumya Swaminathan stated.
Prior to pausing the trials, WHO referred to the vaccine being developed by AstraZeneca as probably the world’s leading candidate and the most advanced in terms of development.
The company has since said in a statement that it has initiated a study hold.
