Kanpur Home Guard Volunteers For First Human Trial Of COVID-19 Vaccine

Kanpur: Home guard Akash Gupta (35), a resident of Juhi locality in Kanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, has urged PM Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to allow him to be the human trial for COVID-19 vaccine.

“I saw on TV how researchers are testing vaccines on animals because no human is willing to come forward and it was then that I decided to volunteer for the cause as there can be no greater service towards this country and humanity,” Gupta told The New Indian Express.

“In this hour of crisis, if the country’s scientists need specimens for the human trial to develop a vaccine against coronavirus, I am ready to give my body for this experiment,” said Gupta.

“I would be grateful if the concerned authorities use my body to develop the vaccine, Even if I lose my life in this testing, it won’t matter,” he added.
