scientists from London's Imperial College and other institutions announced on Tuesday that they wanted to help contain the pandemic with a targeted corona infection of young, healthy volunteers. The study is scheduled to begin at the beginning of next year and will show the viral load from which a person falls ill with Covid-19. The close observation of the immune response of the test persons should then help in the development of therapies and vaccines.
