Coronavirus Information Report

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - MAY 28: Maria Sole, 4, dressed in a small nurses outfit holds up a rainbow drawing with the words 'Thank You' on it as NHS staff and members of the public take part in the weekly "Clap for Our Carers" event at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital on May 28, 2020 in London, United Kingdom. For 10 weeks, the public have applauded NHS staff and other key workers from their homes at 8pm every Thursday as part of "Clap for Our Carers". Annemarie Plas, the founder of the campaign, has now called for an end to the new tradition, suggesting that an annual clap should take its place. (Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images)
