Denmark’s top health official suddenly fainted at a press conference Wednesday announcing the country would be halting use of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
Video of the briefing shows Tanja Erichsen, the head of Denmark’s Medicines Agency, standing in front of reporters and then collapsing without warning, BBC News reported.
Three men then rush to her aid, including one who tries to raise her legs up. The others are seen moving Erichsen to her side.
She was taken to the hospital as a precaution and recovered.
The country became the first in Europe to fully shelve the AstraZeneca vaccine
in light of recent links to blood clots.
