United Kingdom have promised a ransom of three thousands and five hundred pounds, for whoever can volunteer to be infected with Corona Virus by scientists in London in an effort to find the cure for the deadly virus.
Scientists working on the dangerous project will have to inject the volunteers with two weaker strains of the coronavirus. For the volunteers to get the paycheck, they will have to be quarantined for at least 14 days and eat according to the doctor’s instruction, then they will be paid afterwards.
The exercise will be executed at The Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation Centre, London, and 24 people will be recruited for the study. Whilst 35 other vaccines are being developed, the UK government has promised a whooping £46million in the fight against coronavirus.
However, the ‘unorthodox’ attempt to find the cure for the deadly disease which since killed many across the world has been received with mixed reactions. Some people have lambasted the project, saying that it would be foolish for anyone to get injected with the deadly virus in exchange for money.
