The UK is set to become the first country in the world to deliberately infect healthy volunteers with the coronavirus, the Government confirmed today.
Up to 90 volunteers under the age of 30 will receive a dose of an experimental nasal vaccine, before being infected with Covid-19 in the challenge trial.
It is hoped the controversial study, if approved by regulators, will ramp up efforts to develop a vaccine, with the first only expected at the start of next year.
