If there was a fair evidence it may prove effective against the coronavirus family, and not one mutated variant... sure...

Otherwise, GTFOH with your snek oil...

You understand the word trial in this context, yeah?
You understand that human trials are the final step in a somewhat longer process? That it wouldn't make it to this particular gate had it not stumbled at the, multiple, earlier ones?

Nah bugger that. Prove it works safely on humans then I'm happy to have it.

Also depends on the stage of clinical trials. Stage 1 for example is just giving it to humans to see what dosages are safe.

Never before in human history have vaccines been rushed to human trials in such a short space of time.
Which is truly mysterious because this is not a new/noteworthy event.

What is new/noteworthy is the sheer volume of pants-whetting fear it has generated.

Doesn't mean there won't be some evidence of efficacy prior to human trials...

Question needs the added context that there's almost always a very nice amount of money to be made from volunteering for trials. Obviously most people won't just volunteer for the lolz.
