The world’s first Covid-19 human challenge study will begin within a month in the United Kingdom, deliberately exposing up to 90 healthy young people to the CoronaVirus.
The study received ethics approval this week, the country’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) said.
During the trial, up to 90 volunteers aged between 18 to 30 years will be exposed to Covid-19 in a safe and controlled environment. The purpose is to increase understanding of how the virus affects people. The study will play a “key role in developing effective Covid-19 vaccines and treatments.”
Dr. Yael Vidal, of Vidal Medical Concierge in Juno Beach, explained to her patients that this unique clinical study will be the first ever of its kind, with regard to Covid-19. Previous studies have tested the safety and the efficiency of vaccines for Covid-19, or of medicaments attempting to cure Covid-19. This new trial would be unique.
A patient who lives in Jupiter, Florida has explained: “I was looking for a high-quality Concierge Doctor near me, near Jupiter, and I was delighted to find Dr. Vidal right here in the neighboring Juno Beach”.
Indeed, patients who seek a concierge physician in Palm Beach Gardens, often find that the proximity to Juno Beach makes Vidal Concierge an excellent provider that suits their goals. In a relaxed and non-rushed setting, the patients of Vidal Medical Concierge can receive the full attention to detail that Dr Vidal can provide them.
