Scientists want to know more about the virus and test vaccines against new variants.

The United Kingdom is the scene of an unpublished study on covid-19 that seeks to obtain “unique information” about the coronavirus.

Young and healthy volunteers will be infected with coronavirus to test vaccines and treatments.

It’s about a “human challenge test” and it is the first of its kind in the world.

The study, which received approval from bioethics committees, will begin in the coming weeks by recruiting 90 people between 18 and 30 years old.
