    The UK is pushing ahead to be the first nation to carry out "human challenge" studies where up to 90 healthy people will be deliberately exposed to Covid.

    The government is putting £33.6m towards the groundbreaking work.

    Is this even valid research? The news said the virus would be injected into the volunteers, rather than via a natural infection route. I assume that is to avoid the biosecurity needed to release the virus into the air.

      Hundreds queue in Yiwu, China for experimental Covid-19 vaccine

      A city in eastern China has started offering a coronavirus vaccine to the general public - although it has not yet completed clinical trials.

      Hundreds of people have been queuing outside a hospital in Yiwu, where nurses are administering the injections for a fee of around $60 (£45).

      The vaccine is available to the public in the city of Yiwu but is still in the final trial stages.
