It has been reported by CNBC that Amazon is working towards developing a cure for the common cold. Amazon titled the venture ‘Project Gesundheit’ and will work toward creating a vaccine that would protect people from being infected. The researchers working on Project Gesundheit are a small team within the company’s Grand Challenge group.
Creating a common cold vaccine would protect large numbers of people from one of the most frequently occurring illnesses. However, developing this vaccine could be difficult for the vast number of common cold strains.
Amazon’s venture into health care could also be significant for the organization, as it is a large industry that could help Amazon further diversify its business.
