Marcus’ 3 Week Isolation Challenge

by | Jul 27, 2021

Marcus Dahl, former Comparative Human Rights BCL Scholar, is participating inOxford’s world-first coronavirus reinfection challenge trial. He is using the funding from participating in this trial to support efforts to ensure vaccines are distributed equally around the world. Below he explains in more detail his efforts and how to support this important campaign:

Nobody wants to get COVID-19. But I’m participating in a COVID-19 human challenge trial because I believe health is a human right which we all must strive to achieve worldwide. From the hospital quarantine unit, I’m fundraising through Vaccinaid for UNICEF’s delivery of COVAX scheme vaccines worldwide to the places that need them the most. When I walk out of hospital, I will give my £2,000 of compensation money to this.

All life is sacred, and people are equally deserving of treatment and protection in this pandemic. We have not done enough as a global community to be fair in fighting this pandemic, and people are suffering as a result. I encourage everyone who has access to healthcare and vaccines, and the means, to join me. My Vaccinaid fundraiser is linked and runs until the end of my stay in the hospital quarantine unit:  https://www.vaccinaid.org/marcus-3-week-isolation-challenge. Together let’s tilt the scales of this pandemic a little bit closer to equality.
