I was using a query like this one https://api.fda.gov/drug/event.json?search=patient.drug.medicinalproduct.exact:("ELIQUIS")+AND+receivedate:[20110101+TO+20151231]%27+AND+occurcountry:%27fr%27&count=serious to retrieve all adverse events for a specific country. It was working some month ago. But now it seems the searchable fields occurcountry doesn't work anymore. When I deleted it the query works. It is an bug or I missed an update for the API?
