Hi, what are you looking for?


Coronavirus for money, anyone?

Would you be willing to get infected with the novel Coronavirus for a paycheck? If yes, then scientists are looking for you.

According to reports, scientists are looking for 24 individuals who are willing to volunteer to be infected with Coronavirus in an experiment to develop a vaccine the killer virus.

The Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation Centre in Whitechapel, London is recruiting 24 people for the study and according to the Daily Mail, they will be paid £3,500, an equivalent of approximately Ksh471,588.

The study will test if a jab developed by Hvivo will successfully fight COVID-19 and the individuals are set to be injected with two weaker strains (0C43 and 229E) of the virus that has so far left more than 3,800 people dead.

To get their paycheck, participants must stay in quarantine for two weeks and eat a restricted diet. They are also not allowed to have contact with anyone else or even exercise.

The scientists will then assess their response to the vaccine while wearing protective clothing and the room is expected to be well ventilated.

The 24 volunteers for the medical experiment can only be used after the UK’s medicine watchdog Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency approves.

World Health Organization (WHO) has listed about 35 vaccine candidates but Hvivo is not among them.
