DUP man dating Poots' daughter claims his 'tea' can help in Covid battle without scientific evidence

He is seeking funding for his £10-a-pot 'remedy' despite having no medical training or scientific evidence for his claims

A DUP volunteer with close links to government minister Edwin Poots' family has been flogging "medicinal tea" on Facebook as a key aid in fighting coronavirus.

Basile 'G-Star' Sery was pictured leafleting with Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs Minister Edwin Poots, who is also a former health minister, at last year's council elections and now claims he can help "aid" people suffering from Covid-19 by using his own herbal remedy.

"Coronavirus is mucus blocking the oxygen supply and the tea can flush out the mucus," said Basile, also known as Baz.
