The woman had underlying heart problems and other underlying health conditions. Her cause of death is being investigated, the health ministry said.
The same batch of vaccine was used to administer shots to nine other people without any problems, officials said, as reported by Reuters.
Earlier this month, the AstraZeneca vaccine was suspended in Germany, Spain, Italy, France, and some other European countries after reports of blood clots and deaths. Later, the European Medicines Agency and the World Health Organization stated that the data available doesn't suggest that the vaccine caused their deaths.
However, some health officials in other countries, including the United States, raised concerns on March 23 that positive trial results released by AstraZeneca earlier this week for its vaccine may have used incomplete data.
The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) said in a statement that it and other agencies are "concerned by information released by AstraZeneca on initial data from its COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial."
The vaccine is used widely in the UK, across the European continent, as well as in other countries including India and Thailand.
