Is it right to test trial vaccine on volunteers? Medical authorities debate while cure is delayed!


The death toll is rising as we dwell on this case. The Coronavirus pandemic is destroying livelihoods globally. People are ready to take any and all steps to stop this virus by discovering a vaccine. But the production of cure becomes difficult without proper human testing.

With government officials debating on injecting trial vaccines on people, around 3,900 people get ready for injecting. But these people will not actually receive a vaccine. They will actually get a small dose of a weekend Coronavirus in order to find an antidote.

All of these volunteers registered for this program at their will. The entire ordeal is a part of a grassroots organization by the name of 1 Day Sooner. Any individual can go the official website to register as a volunteer and help discover a Coronavirus vaccine faster.
