Cummings tested his eyesight on innocent co-drivers and their families to make sure he can safely drive his own family. Can I test Remdesivir on his children, because I'm planning to use it on my cat if she gets corona?

"Diners are to be given a £10-a-meal government discount to eat in restaurants this August, while VAT on the hospitality sector will be slashed from 20% to 5% until next January, chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced."
