The third person is a 45 year-old from Ambon, Maluku Province. “The person in question complained of fevers, coughs and flu. It turned out that he contracted Covid-19, and was already in a terminal stage,” he noted.

“He was vaccinated with the AstraZeneca batch [CTMAV547], which was recently recalled by the government according to media reports.”

Meanwhile, Covid-19 Task Force spokesman Wiku Adisasmito announced that the government will use other batches of the AstraZeneca vaccine, following the recall of the CTMAV547 batch.

“The other batches will be allocated to those who have not been vaccinated, so that reach full immunity, with the vaccines’ help.”

The Food and Drug Agency or BPOM are currently investigating the toxicity of the vaccine and any abnormalities related to the medication.
