UK – Dozens to be deliberately infected with coronavirus

Young, healthy people will be intentionally exposed to the virus responsible for COVID-19 in a first-of-its kind ‘human challenge trial’, the UK government and a company that runs such studies announced on 20 October.

The experiment, set to begin in January in a London hospital if it receives final regulatory and ethical approval, aims to accelerate the development of vaccines that could end the pandemic

“they WILL get a little bit ill”

1000’s are willing to come forward and do this, not just dozens !
