Vaccine test:UK volunteers to be given virus

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

British volunteers are to be deliberately infected with COVID-19 to test whether a vaccine offers any protection.

In the first trial of its kind, participants will be injected with an experimental vaccine and around a month later exposed to Sars-Cov-2, the virus that causes the disease.

According to FT, the studies - which are known as human challenge trials - will begin in January and are government funded.

It is reported that the trials will take place in a secure facility in Whitechapel, east London, and that 2,000 potential volunteers have signed up in the UK.

That is really amazing. This has been considered to be an unethical method. But this is a pandemic and ethics must adapt to the situations involved.

Reading the article I did not know that the recent typhoid vaccine work involved exposure to the pathogen.
