Outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Ronda

MADRID (Reuters) – Spain’s government has called a meeting of the interregional council for the coronavrius response on Thursday to evaluate possible resumption of vaccination with AstraZeneca shots after the EU drug regulator said that the vaccine’s benefits outweighed risks.

Spain is among a dozen countries that had suspended the use after reports of blood disorders.

The council meeting was scheduled for 6 p.m. local time (1700 GMT), and will be followed by a news briefing, the government said.
