A 73-year-old woman in North Gyeongsang who died on Oct. 21, the same day she was vaccinated, was given a vaccine from the same batch as another person who died at a later date, KDCA announced in a press release Thursday. Details about the second fatality were not released by the KDCA.

Another two fatalities were found to have been vaccinated from a single batch different from the batch mentioned earlier according to the KDCA. One of the duo was a 79-year-old man who died on Oct. 21, two days after he was vaccinated.

The two batches were both produced by SK Biopharmaceuticals.
