Will infecting people with Covid-19 speed up vaccine process?

May 25, 2020 11:18 IST

Researchers from Bristol University believe that 'human challenge studies of Covid-19 vaccine' could help speed up the process of developing a vaccine as well as its efficacy. A human challenge study involves intentionally infecting volunteers with the virus to test treatment possibilities. Researchers shared that the levels of infection in the community are already low, and there may not be enough people secreting the virus to be in contact with volunteers in vaccine projects. Researchers from Warwick University Medical School added that only very healthy young people aged 25 years will take part in the trial and an effective therapy will be worked on. The World Health Organisation has also shared a set of guidelines for human challenge trials.
