Submitted 114 day(s) ago by system

Brazil has said it won't change its recommendation to use a malaria drug to fight coronavirus, even though the World Health Organization has suspended trials of hydroxychloroquine because of safety concerns Brazil has the second highest number of coronavirus infections (374,898) and the sixth highest number of deaths (23,473) in the world, a tally by Johns Hopkins University shows.

Trials in several countries are being "temporarily" suspended as a precaution, the agency said on Monday. It comes after a recent medical study suggested the drug could increase the risk of patients dying from Covid-19. President Donald Trump has said he has taken the drug to ward off the virus.

Who is Dominic Cummings - the PM’s aide at the centre of lockdown controversy? - BBC News - YouTube
Submitted 115 day(s) ago by system

It is highly unusual for a government adviser, even one as influential as Boris Johnson’s chief aide Dominic Cummings, to be in the spotlight. It's raised questions once again about the extent of his power and how far Boris Johnson relies on him day-to-day in the running of the government. Normally for many people events at Westminster would be the last thing on their minds on a sunny bank holiday Monday. But much of the criticism of Mr Cummings has come from members of the public. Many have voiced the perception that he was obeying his own set of rules, unlike tens of millions of others staying at home as instructed.

Coronavirus crisis: govt borrowing hits record level - BBC News - YouTube
Submitted 118 day(s) ago by system

Government borrowing has surged to its highest level on record, underlining the scale of the economic damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The deficit, the difference between government spending and tax receipts, soared to more than £62 billion in April, due to the level of financial support provided by the Treasury, to help businesses and employees through the crisis. The hole in the government finances wasn't helped by a big drop in retail sales. They plummeted by a record amount in April, as many high street stores closed in the coronavirus lockdown. Clothing sales were hit hardest, down more than 50 per cent, although online spending online rose. The company which owns the coach firm Shearings has gone into administration. The Specialist Leisure Group, which is based in Wigan and employs more than 2,500 people also runs the brands UK Breakaways, Caledonian Travel and Country Living Hotels.

Submitted 135 day(s) ago by system

Virgin Atlantic has announced plans to cut more than 3,000 jobs in the UK and to end its operation at Gatwick Airport. The company blamed what it called the “devastating” effect of the pandemic.

Submitted 135 day(s) ago by system

The United Kingdom has recorded Europe's highest number of deaths inked to coronavirus. It has overtaken Italy, and is second only to the United States in total number of recorded deaths from the disease. Dominic Raab, the First Secretary of State, said the latest figures portrayed “a massive tragedy” but he warned against making comparisons with other countries until much more information is available on all causes of death. The latest figures show there were 693 deaths linked to the virus in a 24-hour period in the UK. That brings the total number of deaths officially linked to the virus to 29,427. The impact of the pandemic on some of the most vulnerable people is increasingly clear. The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics show coronavirus related deaths in care homes in England and Wales increased by more than a third in the week ending 24th April. That week there were 2,794 registered deaths in care homes linked to coronavirus, bringing the total to nearly 6,000 care home deaths up to April 24th.

The new Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has used his first Prime Minister's Questions to criticise the government's response to the pandemic. He said it had failed to deliver the coronavirus tests needed or to provide enough protective equipment for frontline workers.

Submitted 180 day(s) ago by system

Shoppers in the UK have been told to "be responsible" and think of others such as NHS workers, after panic-buying amid the coronavirus outbreak. Environment Secretary George Eustice said there is more than enough food to go around - but the challenge for shops is keeping shelves stocked. It comes as supermarkets have been overwhelmed by increased purchasing. Meanwhile, cafes, pubs and restaurants across the UK have closed as part of measures to stop the virus spreading. "Frankly we should all be ashamed," said Stephen Powis, medical director at NHS England, who said panic-buyers are depriving NHS staff of the supplies they need. "These are the very people that we all need to look after perhaps us or our loved ones in the weeks to come." Please subscribe HERE
