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


    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.

    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.

    The trials, which could begin in January, aim to speed up the race to get a Covid-19 vaccine.

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