Animal shelter in London at risk of closing due to coronavirus crisis


London, May 22 (EFE/EPA).- (Camera: Neil Hall) The Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) provides a safe home for rescued wildlife who are sick, injured, or orphaned. They rehabilitate animals and birds back into to the wild or provide them with a permanent home. The service is closed due to coronavirus. It does not qualify for government relief to help with the running cost and can't get local council assistance as a charity. Running costs between 10,000 and 12,000 British pounds (about 12,000 to 14,000 euros) per month are usually provided by donations and a now closed cafe. As a result the centre is in danger of being closed. FOOTAGE OF THE SHELTER.

  • Study: You Can Have COVID-19-Fighting Antibodies Without Ever Having COVID-19

    British researchers have made a somewhat surprising discovery about how someone's body can fight COVID-19, even if they'd never had the virus. After catching the common cold, some people--especially children--appear to have antibodies that could also offer some level of protection against SARS-CoV-2. According to HuffPost, the study, published online in the journal Science last week, was essentially an accident. Researchers in London were working on developing new, more sensitive tests that screen for COVID-19 antibodies. They found that among the 300 blood samples taken, nearly half of the children in the small study had antibodies that would recognize SARS-CoV-2. Our results show that children are much more likely to have these cross-reactive antibodies than adults. More research is needed to understand why this is, but it could be down to children being more regularly exposed to other coronaviruses. ,” Kevin Ng, Study author Doctoral candidate Francis Crick Institute, London
