The Wider Image: In Brazil, vaccine trial volunteers hope to save lives
Denise Abranches, 47, the first volunteer in COVID-19 vaccine trial in Brazil and the first volunteer outside Britain to receive the trial vaccine from AstraZeneca, poses for a photograph in Sao Paulo, Brazil, December 07, 2020. Abranches is a dental surgeon and coordinator of dentistry at Sao Paulo hospital. "I witnessed many lonely deaths here: patients who could not say goodbye to their relatives; relatives who could not say goodbye to their loved ones. When the vaccine trial came, I joined immediately. I never hesitated," she said. "This global effort of volunteers in search of a vaccine will be remembered and will go down in history. Everything that has happened – the deaths, the whole world's effort to find a vaccine, the researchers, the scientists. And the gesture of love from volunteers. That's how I'd like to be remembered."
