Volunteers for virus

More than 2 000 Americans have volunteered to be deliberately infected with the coronavirus.

They volunteered to join vaccine trials for a potential cure – when human trials of this kind go ahead. 

The online programme, called 1 Day Sooner, is intended to speed up development of a vaccine.

“We want to recruit as many people as possible and pre-qualify them,” said founder Josh Morrison.
