Some scientists are taking a DIY coronavirus vaccine, and nobody knows if it’s legal or if it works

On Aug 1, 2020
@echidna_paw shared
RT @techreview: Famed geneticist George Church and at least 20 others, many connected to Harvard and MIT, have volunteered for a DIY covid-19 vaccine. They didn’t want to wait for the results of clinical trials, but nobody knows if this vaccine is legal or if it works. https://t.co/Rl5Ff55R4E
