FDA reveals six deaths in Pfizer trial but says not to worry

Six people died in Pfizer’s late-stage trial of the COVID-19 vaccine, the US Food and Drug Administration has revealed just hours after Britain became the first country in the world to roll out the vaccine.

The documents revealed that two people who received the experimental vaccine had died during the trial. Four others who died were on a placebo.

There was, however, insufficient data for the FDA to conclude how safe the vaccine is in children under 16, pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems.
