Flights still bringing 15,000 people a day to UK with no screening

At least 15,000 people are still flying in to the UK each day with no screening for coronavirus, according to the health secretary. Matt Hancock said the equivalent of 105,000 travellers land per week, including from hotspot nations such as China, Italy and the United States. The government has not imposed any health checks or quarantine periods for people coming in to the country. In contrast, the US banned all travellers from Europe, and New Zealand enforced a mandatory 14-day quarantine for anyone entering.

One in four London care homes hit by coronavirus outbreak

One in four London care homes have been hit by coronavirus since the start of the outbreak, new figures suggest, as anger grows over the lack of reporting. Public Health England (PHE) said today that around 350 care homes in the capital have declared an outbreak of Covid-19.That means around 25% of care homes have reported outbreaks. However, the true figure is thought to be even higher than that, with one London council leader telling Sky News they believe at least 387 care homes have had cases of the virus. The figures come amid accusations care home cases of coronavirus are being forgotten. Currently, the government’s daily deaths update only includes patients who die after testing positive for Covid-19 in hospital.

Germany sends China £130billion bill for ‘corona virus damages’

GERMANY has rattled China after joining the UK, France and the US in a rare attack, after Berlin called out Beijing’s responsibility for the global pandemic and even issued a £130bn invoice. Germany has sparked outrage in China after a major newspaper put together a £130bn invoice that Beijing “owes” Berlin following the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Germany has followed France, the UK and the US in directing its coronavirus anger at China, where the virus originated. Recent attacks come amid findings that Beijing appeared to cover up the true scale of the crisis, as the source of the outbreak remains a mystery.

On Saturday, Donald Trump warned that China should face consequences if it was “knowingly responsible” for unleashing the coronavirus pandemic.

Currently ‘no evidence’ that COVID-19 survivors have immunity, WHO warns

There is no evidence that people who have recovered from coronavirus have immunity to the disease, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has said.

The UK government has bought 3.5 million serology tests – which measure levels of antibodies in blood plasma.

But senior WHO epidemiologists have warned that there is no proof that such antibody tests can show if someone who has been infected with COVID-19  cannot be infected again.

Many of the tests being developed are pinprick blood tests similar to instant HIV tests and measure for raised levels of the antibodies that the body uses to fight the  virus.

Speaking at a news conference in Geneva, Dr Maria van Kerkhove said: “There are a lot of countries that are suggesting using rapid diagnostic serological tests to be able to capture what they think will be a measure of immunity.

“Right now, we have no evidence that the use of a serological test can show that an individual has immunity or is protected from reinfection.”
