Challenge study to begin in UK - ChrisGreene - 02-17-2021

This link is to an announcement that someone in the UK got ethics approval for a COVID challenge study!

As I learned, a challenge study is where one deliberately exposes someone to the disease instead of waiting for it to happen. This way vaccines, drugs, and treatments can be evaluated more quickly.
