UK Medical Research Firm Will Pay You to Get Infected With Coronavirus


A medical research firm in the UK is looking for 24 volunteers to get a shot of the world's most famous virus as part of their testing to develop a vaccine--and they'll pay you a cool $4,588 for your troubles. According toThe New York Post, volunteers will receive two of the virus' weaker strains before then receiving vaccines to test their effectiveness. Those who participate in the experiment at London's Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation Centre should expect to experience mild respiratory symptoms. Of course, you'll also need to stay in quarantine for two weeks while avoiding people and exercise and staying on a restricted diet.
