A five-month-old girl has died after being given turtle blood to drink as a bizarre remedy to protect her from coronavirus

A five-month-old girl has died after being given turtle blood to drink as a bizarre remedy to protect her from coronavirus.

The baby’s seven-year-old sister and parents have also been hospitalised after drinking the animal blood too.

Boris Johnson said the system was “relying on people’s public spiritedness” because the system was “our way out” of lockdown, “This is our way of defeating the virus, getting our country back on its feet, and I think people will want to work together,” he said.

“That captivity for a tiny minority for a short time will allow us gradually to release, 66 million people.”

In Paris, the Champs de Mars park which leads to the Eiffel Tower re-opened earlier this month but has sometimes been deserted. 

While some landmarks have opened their doors, including St Peter’s Basilica and the archaeological sites in Greece, others such as the Eiffel Tower and Rome’s Colosseum must still be viewed from a distance.

Establishing local test, track and trace is a step in the right direction but will require significant resources, monitoring and vigilance to ensure that it is working effectively across the country.

Alicia Kearns, the Tory MP for Rutland and Melton, is another to criticise Cummings, while stopping short of calling for his departure. A statement posted on her website reads:

Mr Sorkin defended himself, pointing to the death toll as evidence the virus should not be shrugged off.

Wall Street ended the day on another high note with a second day of posting gains this week. The stock market was closed on Monday due to Memorial Day.
