How much would someone have to pay you to get infected with a potentially fatal virus?

One London company is reportedly paying volunteers around $4,500 to be infected with the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

The Daily Mail reported the Queen Mary BioEntertprises Innovation Centre in London is recruiting 24 people for the study.

Each will be injected with weaker strains of the virus as part of research into the development of a vaccine.

Experts reportedly said any vaccine is unlikely to be approved in time to halt the current epidemic.
