Let us know that earlier such trials have been done for diseases like typhoid, malaria and flu. These trials are being carried out to make the Corona vaccine work faster. Participants in the challenge will be 18 to 30 years old. The risk of dying from corona is lower in people of this age.
To participate in this challenge and to make themselves deliberately Corona positive these people will get around four thousand pounds i.e. about four lakh rupees. The challenge will also have 18-year-old Alister Fraser, telling a media house that he will be kept locked in clinics for at least two weeks and his body will be monitored. He said that if this trial is successful then the lives of millions of people can be saved. Apart from him, 29-year-old Jennifer Wright will also be part of the trial. She said, I did not want to lose it when I got a chance to secure people. We are eagerly awaiting the vaccine that breaks this virus.
Explain that such trials were done in the 18th century by scientist Edward Jenner. He infected his son working in the garden with the virus to see if his vaccine was effective on the virus. From this point onwards, such a practice was adopted.
