Coronavirus Guinea Pigs Wanted

The Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation Centre in London is looking for twenty-four Volunteers who are interested in earning approximately 4,000 euros – in exchange for being infected by Covid-19, the Mirror newspaper quoted today. The laboratory institute’s goal is to find a vaccine for the virus, which has already left more than 100,000 people infected worldwide.

After being infected with the new coronavirus, volunteers will have to be quarantined at the Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation Centre in Whitechapel for two weeks. Volunteers will receive two injections of a weaker strain of the virus which will give them less aggressive symptoms than those with Covid-19.

According to the World Health Organisation, more than twenty Covid-19 vaccines are currently being developed.
