WHO statement on AstraZeneca shot expected 'very soon'

- A World Health Organization advisory group statement on the AstraZeneca AZN.L COVID-19 shot is expected very soon, a WHO spokesman said on Wednesday.

Global health experts have come under increasing pressure to clear up questions over the safety of AstraZeneca's vaccine, as the number of countries suspending its use grows in a blow to Europe's vaccination rollout.
