Volunteers willing to risk it all by purposefully getting infected with the coronavirus in a bid to find a cure will reportedly receive payment of £3,500.

An experiment will see brave volunteers being paid £3,500 to be infected with a form of coronavirus in a bid to find a vaccine, Daily Star reports

A willing and able few will have to live in quarantine in a laboratory in east London where they will be infected with two common but much less serious strains of the virus that has killed over 3,500 people worldwide so far.

Hvivo, the company which owns the laboratory at Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation Centre at Whitechapel in east London, will infect batches of 24 volunteers with the 0C43 and 229E strains of the virus.

These are thought to cause very mild respiratory symptoms and are far less serious than the killer Covid-19 rampaging through the world currently.

However, it is thought a vaccine that can combat these smaller bigs, could take on the killer coronavirus bringing an end to the global panic.

Volunteers will be held in isolation for two weeks, and will not be able to exercise or have physical contact with other people. Their diet will also be restricted. The most effective drugs and vaccines will then be used on real patients.
