Italian doctor says new coronavirus may be losing its potency

One of the hospitals in Italy that has borne witness to the worst of the pandemic says that it's noticed a marked change in their new patients: the virus inside them seems to be losing its potency.

Alberto Zangrillo is the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan. Talking to Italy's RAI television, he said: "In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy."

According to Zangrillo, swab tests on patients performed over the last 10 days showed a much lower viral load compared to ones carried out a month ago.

In other words, the new patients have noticeably less of the virus in their bodies.

He also said that some experts were too alarmist about the prospect of a second wave of infections and politicians needed to take into account the new reality.

The European Commission wants EU courts to be able to refuse UK extradition requests for suspects facing whole life sentences unless Britain undertakes to review the penalty either on request or, at the latest, 20 years after the sentence. Whole life sentences have been subject to failed legal challenges on the basis they break the European Convention on Human Rights. The UK has refused to commit to never leaving the Convention during the negotiations, which is an EU condition for continued criminal database sharing, but insists it won't leave it. Brussels also wants judges to refuse extradition requests if they believe they are motivated by the suspect's "sex, race, religion, ethnic origin, nationality, language, political opinions or sexual orientation". The EAW replaced bilateral extradition agreements between countries with a much faster system that involved the judiciary directly rather t
