You Can Get Paid $4,550 to Let Scientists Infect You with Coronavirus
A British company called Hvivo that studies viruses is one of the many groups working like crazy to find a vaccine or cure for COVID-19, which is caused by the recent coronavirus outbreak. But they need people with the virus to study.
So . . . they're paying up. They're looking for volunteers to INTENTIONALLY infect with the virus for $4,550. Then you'll live in their lab in London for two weeks. So hey, $4,550 AND two weeks of free rent.
Is it risky to intentionally get a potentially fatal disease? On some level, yes . . . but you've got two things working in your favor.
One, they'll infect you with a milder strain. Two, young, healthy people usually handle this virus okay . . . and across all ages, over 96% of people who get coronavirus survive.
The lab is only taking groups of 24 people at a time. You can check out their website FluCamp.comto see when applications go live.
