It's a major setback for a potential Covid-19 vaccine, Johnson & Johnson says it will stop testing its experimental vaccine on humans. Company officials say a volunteer has come down with a sickness and they are the first person to have fallen ill.

Information about the person's symptoms are not being released due to privacy concerns. Johnson & Johnson says the pause in testing is only temporary. Testing in Great Britain, Brazil, South Africa, and India continues.
