What did we learn from today's UK briefing?

Today's government press conference was with Health Secretary Matt Hancock. It was the first time the minister giving the briefing has not been joined by a government scientist.

Here's what he told us:

People who have had coronavirus can help people currently in hospital by donating their blood plasma, which will contain antibodies. Mr Hancock said he had done so this morning

From 15 June, all hospital visitors and out-patients will have to wear face coverings (not surgical masks)

All hospital staff, whether working in a clinical setting or not, will have to wear a type one or two surgical mask

He implored people not to attend large gatherings, including protests over the killing of George Floyd by police in the US

The R-number (which measures rate of infection) is higher in the North West and South West of England, but remains below 1. The national R number is between 0.7 and 0.9

Coronavirus: Many European countries are lifting restrictions further - BBC News

June 1st marks an important day for many countries around the world in their efforts to try and ease lockdown restrictions. But while countries like Spain and Italy can ease restrictions with the outbreak now under control, the road ahead for Brazil and Russia is much less clear – as cases continue to rise.

#BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource
The Netherlands is easing its partial lockdown today.

Museums can admit visitors again - though it's advance bookings only and social distancing rules apply inside.

The Anne Frank House is restricting visitor numbers to 15 rather than the usual 83 guests every 15 minutes.

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam will allow a fifth of the usual number inside every day. Some of the paintings have been rehung to ensure people can observe social distancing guidelines. Stickers on the floor remind people of the country's 1.5m (5ft) rule.

The surreal experience of flying during the pandemic

Demand for air travel has all but evaporated with the arrival of coronavirus. But airlines are still flying. And now, passengers have to wear masks. Here’s what it’s like to take a flight from Washington, D.C. into Atlanta, the world’s busiest airport. Mandatory stay-at-home orders have pushed demand for flying to almost zero, wrecking airline finances. Carriers are parking hundreds of planes anywhere they can, including on a runway at Atlanta. Inside the concourses there, crowds are nowhere near what they were in mid-March, as coronavirus started to shut life down. Most restaurants and shops are closed. On board flights, passengers will find blocked seats, to encourage social distancing. And inflight service consisting of water and snacks stuffed into a plastic baggie, to limit the interaction flight attendants have with fliers.

Flying during coronavirus - June 2020

With HEPA filters and very few people traveling I felt good about flying from San Jose SJC to Los Angeles LAX. Here is the entire experience of flying during Covid 19 in summer 2020.

My Porsche Cayenne Turbo 955 is waiting to get fixed in the Bay Area after I drove it up the coast of California with plans of doing a road trip.

Travel safety during the COVID-19 pandemic

COVID-19 is a global issue. The disease is in every country and nearly every city. That's why health experts do not recommend any nonessential travel at this time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says crowded travel settings, like airports, may increase chances of getting COVID-19 if there are other travelers with COVID-19 infection.

Dr. Abinash Virk, a Mayo Clinic infectious diseases physician, echoes that sentiment and says people should postpone travel if possible. However, if that's not an option, she says it's critical to be cautious about your potential exposures.

In this Q&A, Dr. Virk answers travel questions related to COVID-19 travel-related questions and offers some advice on how travelers can better protect themselves and others around them.

What did we learn from today's UK briefing?

The UK daily press conference was led by Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab. He appeared without any of the government's scientific advisers.

Here's what he told us:

The government has provided extra money to schools to widen summer programmes for the children of key workers, who won't be able to access their usual childcare, such as grandparents and summer schemes
He rejected the claim that information on the effects of coronavirus on people from ethnic minority backgrounds is being withheld. He said the government wanted to provide concrete advice
Mr Raab said medics and scientists will continue to attend the press briefings but did not say why none were in attendance today
