Chinanews, October 26. According to Korean media reports, the Korean Disease Management Agency said on the 26th that as of 0:00 local time, a total of 59 people had died after being vaccinated.
Under this circumstance, the Korean Agency for Disease Control still stated that the correlation between death and vaccination was very low and decided to continue vaccination as planned.
