What is next for AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine after dosing error in first trial?

AstraZeneca admits it made a mistake in dosage levels on some vaccine trial volunteers; reaction from Dr. Janette Nesheiwat on ‘America’s Newsroom.’

A Texas family says their mother’s funeral, held earlier this month, turned into a super-spreader event after more than 40 people came down with coronavirus.

Delynda Cruz, whose mother the funeral was held for, told Fox 4 News she started feeling sick about two days after the Nov. 8 service.

“I got chills on Tuesday night,” she told the news outlet. “And then Wednesday morning I ran a little bit of a fever.”

Cruz said that the family is speaking out after more than 100 people came to honor her mother because they want others to be cognizant of the risk of coronavirus. Those who were infected ranged in age from as young as 3 to as old as 90, Fox 4 News reported.

“It was frightening knowing that I could’ve been the one that gave [it to] my 90-year-old aunt,” she told the news outlet. “Or, I could’ve been the one that gave the 3-year-old, or I could’ve been the one that gave my cousin that’s fighting for his life.”


Texas has seen over 1.2 million cases of coronavirus and more than 21,630 deaths. The state currently has a testing positivity rate of 10.66%, according to Johns Hopkins University. Several other families have spoken out about spread among relatives including one family who created a PSA about their coronavirus cluster.
