Dr Elisa Granato, who volunteered to have the COVID-19 test vaccine developed in The United Kingdom tested on her has said she is doing very fine.
There had been rumours on the internet that she died from complications arising from the vaccine.
However, Fergus Walsh, medical correspondent of the BBC, tweeted a clip from a Skype call he had with her on Sunday.
In the video, she appeared alive and well and was having a cup of tea before she went on to confirm it herself.
See below the video of Granato as published by the BBC:
Fake news has been circulating on social media that the first volunteer in the Oxford vaccine trial has died. This is not true! I spent several minutes this morning chatting with Elisa Granato via Skype. She is very much alive and told me she is feeling “absolutely fine” pic.twitter.com/iWAtYaSkRZ
