Bowman sympathizes with volunteers who consider unknown protections of a trial vaccine to be better than nothing.

Interestingly, a small team from Copenhagen, Denmark, actually made this happen, with a device it created called Thermodo. It is a beautifully crafted high precision thermometer that measures ambient temperatures, connecting to a smartphone using the 3.5mm headphone jack.
