According to the Daily Star, in East London, 24 volunteers will be paid around £3,500 to be infected by a form of the virus and shall be quarantined at the Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation Centre in Whitechapel.

The less serious strains of the virus are believed to cause less severe symptoms and from these laboratory tests, scientists will embark on a process of finding a vaccine.

A jab developed by the company Hvivo will then be tested.

However, UK’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency will have to agree on Hvivo’s plans before this experiment can take place.

Back home, the government has reiterated that there is no confirmed case of Coronavirus in Kenya and a suspected case (now deceased) at MP Shah hospital turned negative.
