Groomer honeybees can boost a colony's immunity by clearing deadly parasites off their nestmates using their mandibles, a study has found. The find offers hope for dealing with serious pests including the infamous varroa mite, that attaches itself to a worker's abdomen and sucks out its bodily fluids. 'We suspect that if more bees engaged in these allogrooming behaviours that ward off parasites, the colony as a whole could have greater immunity.' In the experiment the scientists marked certain bees (pictured) and then monitored their behaviour for 30 minutes every day for 13 daysGroomer bees did not have specialised equipment. 'Only a tiny fraction of bees however perform allogrooming inside the hive,' Dr Cini told MailOnline.

Gardaí are investigating Monday’s Black Lives Matter protest in Dublin with a view to potentially prosecuting organisers for their role in such a large public gathering during the Covid-19 lockdown. They are now being investigated under the Covid-19 regulations, one of which prohibits the organising of large events during the lockdown period. People should follow public health advice and exercise their judgement on “impromptu” mass gatherings, he said. “We have no public health advice on protest; our advice is on gatherings,” he told a briefing on Tuesday. PermitsA number of senior officers said they were aware of plans to hold another Black Lives Matter event next Saturday.

Spain reported zero new deaths from coronavirus on Tuesday, the second straight day where officials claimed to have suffered no fatalities. Both daily totals have fallen sharply since Spain changed the way it tallies its figures, amid accusations they are now unreliable. But Spain now only counts cases and deaths in its daily figures where the person fell sick or died within 36 hours of the report being published. The plunge in daily figures comes as Spain tries to tempt foreign tourists back to the country and eases its lockdown rules. A man drinks a coffee on the outdoor terrace of a cafe in Pamplona, northern Spain, after it was allowed to reopen.

Face masks reduce the risk of coronavirus infection by 77 per cent according to new medical research published on Tuesday. The review, published in the prestigious medical journal The Lancet, found face masks were 77 percent effective at stopping infection, while respirators were 96 percent effective. Face masks are not a substitute for social distancing, however. Australia's health authorities continue to discourage public face mask wearing, encouraging them only for people who show symptoms. The Health Department is still discouraging widespread facemask use despite new studies showing it reduces the spread of infection.

Drugs that treat coronavirus are 'essential' to getting a grip on the pandemic because a vaccine will take years to roll out, a top expert has warned. British firm AstraZeneca said it fully expected to have millions of doses of its AZD1222 vaccine, being developed by Oxford University, ready by September. But when several of the most promising drugs - including the Donald Trump-touted malaria pill hydroxychloroquine - stumbled, attention turned to a vaccine. It comes after a leading member of AstraZeneca's Oxford University vaccine trial said the study has only a 50 per cent chance of being successfully completed. 'We said earlier in the year that there was an 80 per cent chance of developing an effective vaccine by September,' he told The Sunday Telegraph.

Experts are looking at whether a special formulation of Ibuprofen could help reduce the serious side effect seen among patients infected. The NHS stopped advising coronavirus patients to take ibuprofen amid concerns the anti-inflammatory painkiller could only make things worse. Those with coronavirus symptoms are now once again told to ‘take paracetamol or ibuprofen if you feel uncomfortable'. But when they are given this special formulation of ibuprofen the survival rates increase to 80%. Half of the patients enrolled in the trial will receive standard care and the other half will receive standard care plus the special ibuprofen formulation.

Russia will mark the 75th anniversary of the Soviet victory in World War II with a military parade later this month having cancelled its initial May 9 demonstration due to the coronavirus. Asymptomatic Russian troops and those who have developed an immunity to the disease will march in the parade, Russia's Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday. A report in May estimated that around 400 Russian troops had been infected with Covid-19 participating in rehearsals for the May 9 parade. 'I demand that contacts are eliminated between the parade crews and troops and civilians not involved in rehearsals.' The number of coronavirus infections in Moscow has dropped sharply, he said, allowing the capital to start easing some restrictions.

Smokers are less likely to test positive for the coronavirus, according to research that offers yet more evidence that the habit may be protective. Studies show nicotine may stop a dangerous immune system over-reaction called a cytokine storm - a phenomenon found to be killing many Covid-19 patients. Those who had previously smoked had a slightly lower (19 per cent) risk of catching the coronavirus, the results suggested. The team wrote: 'The risk of infection by COVID-19 appears to be reduced by half among current smokers. The graph shows the smoking rate of each country against the percentage of smokers among COVID-19 patients.

Ministers quietly changed the law governing reviews of the coronavirus lockdown today to allow them to take more time to make decisions. Details of the scheme, which is due to come into force on Monday June 8 were expected to be revealed to MPs today. The Prime Minister is believed to be backing air bridges to low-infection countries as the government scrambles to head off a huge Tory revolt. The air bridges idea was first floated by Mr Shapps last month, before being played down by No10 sources. 'The idea of putting in air bridges might be a sensible amendment.'
