Johnson & Johnson has stopped testing the covid vaccine. The final experiment was stopped. The move comes after one of the recipients of the test vaccine became ill.
Johnson & Johnson said the third phase of the trial has been suspended. The last phase of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was first tested in humans on September 23. The third phase of the experiment is being conducted on about 60,000 people.

‘We are suspending all clinical trials of the Covid vaccine, including the third phase enable trial, due to the deteriorating health of an individual who took part in the vaccine trial. “Serious adverse events are an expected part of a clinical study, especially a major study,” Johnson & Johnson said in a statement.
Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccine is being tested on more than six million people, including in the United States. The recipient of the Covid vaccine, developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca, had previously been diagnosed with neurological disease. Following this, the experiment was suspended but later resumed.
