Slides and datasets to accompany coronavirus press conference: 11 June 2020
Press conference slides and datasets used by The Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP and Baroness Dido Harding.
Wednesday 10th June – PM Boris Johnson:
- PM believes all five tests are being met in England: the NHS is being protected, a sustained and consistent fall in the daily death rate, rate of infection decreasing, testing & PPE are in hand and confident that any adjustments won’t result in a second peak
- ‘Support Bubbles’ for single adult households in England with one other household only, including visiting each other’s households, staying overnight without maintaining social distancing from Saturday 13th June
- Safari parks and drive-in cinemas allowed to reopen from Monday 15th June; zoos are also allowed to reopen with outdoor attractions only and maintaining social distancing
- No new easing announcements before 4th July
BBC: Coronavirus ‘support bubbles’: How do they work and who is in yours?In England from 13 June a single adult living alone (or with children under the age of 18) will be able to form a “support bubble” with one other household (of any size). This means they can act as if they are one household – for instance, they can go into each other’s houses, stay the night and don’t have to maintain social distancing. You can only have one bubble per household – you can’t change the arrangement and add other households. People who are already shielding – with underlying health conditions – will not be able to take part. Some examples of those who would be able to benefit from “bubbling” are:
- A grandparent living alone would be able to form a support bubble with one of their children, which means they could go to see them and interact with their grandchildren
- A single parent could form a support bubble with a parent or friend so they could interact as normal
- Two single people who each live alone could form a support bubble
- A couple who don’t live together could form a bubble if they both live alone or if one of them lives with someone else (in this case the person who they live with wouldn’t be allowed to form another bubble).
If anyone in the bubble gets coronavirus symptoms all of the people in the group will have to self-isolate for 14 days.
BBC: UK economy shrinks record 20.4% in April due to lockdown
The UK’s economy shrank by 20.4% in April – the largest monthly contraction on record – as the country spent its first full month in lockdown.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the “historic” fall affected virtually all areas of activity. The contraction is three times greater than the decline seen during the whole of the 2008 to 2009 economic downturn. But analysts said April was likely to be the worst month, as the government began easing the lockdown in May. The ONS also published figures for the three months from February to April, which showed a decline of 10.4% compared with the previous three-month period.
£63 million for local authorities to assist those struggling to afford food and other essentials
“The extraordinary circumstances of this pandemic have meant real financial difficulty for many households, with people left facing hard choices. To help those who are struggling to afford food and other essentials, today we are announcing an additional £63 million which will be given to and distributed by local authorities to those in need. Local authorities are already doing a brilliant job helping the most vulnerable in their communities and this extra money will enable them to help more families and individuals at this extremely difficult time.”
As the UK gets back to work safely, unemployment is the biggest threat to livelihoods. CBI has laid out ambitious health-first recovery plan fo a jobs-rich, sustainable future for the UK economy
After businesses hammered by the pandemic raised fears about their ability to cope when the Brexit transition period ends in December, a government source says it will take a “pragmatic and flexible approach”. That could mean much less rigorous EU border checks on imports than initially planned, at least temporarily. The UK had committed to introducing full import controls on EU goods next January, with Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove calling them “necessary” to keep borders “safe and secure” and to collect the appropriate taxes. But, according to the Financial Times, ministers have abandoned the plans. The source tells BBC News ministers recognise the impact the virus is having on businesses, and so flexibility makes sense “to help business adjust to the changes”.

Robinsons Brewery who operate over 240 tenanted and 20 managed pubs in North Wales and the North West of England have today announced their next wave of support for tenants as described by Managing Director (Pubs Division) – William Robinson.
We are all eagerly awaiting the Covid-safe guidance from government to provide us with detailed information regarding the safe re-opening of pubs. As we wait, so we are planning for the next wave of support for pubs here at Robinsons Brewery. The last 12 weeks have tested us all, but our extended pub family has risen to the challenge and kept us, as well as each other going with help, motivation, advice and even central heating repairs! To assist pub emergence, we have announced our latest support in terms of rent payments. I wrote to all our licensees this week outlining the next phase of our pub support which included details of further rent reductions. This brings our planned rent support to over £3m which is an average of around £12,500 per pub since this started. On the 16th of March we cancelled all pub rents, with them recommencing in steps from 4th July. The plan to support our licensees through the next few months includes: a discount of up to 90% for July; up to 60% for August; and 30% for September and October with those who did not receive a government grant paying less than those who did receive one”

Productivity rises as almost all major sites back at work
Contractors report that around 97% of infrastructure and construction sites are now operating compared with 93% two weeks ago. According to a survey of firms by trade body Build UK output is now starting to rise slowly as firms get to grips with 2m distancing and safer working practices. Infrastructure sites are now achieving 89% of pre-Covid productivity, up from 85% two weeks ago. Even on more challenging building sites productivity is up to 78% from 74% two weeks ago. Member firms with housing sites confirmed that 93% of their sites in England and Wales are now open, up from 68% a month ago, with output rising from 53% to 78% during that period. In Scotland, the situation is very different as firms wait for the First Minister’s all-clear to open non-essential building sites.
£4.6bn paid out to support wages across the construction industry
The Government has paid out £4.6bn since March to support the wages of construction staff on furlough and self-employed workers laid off in the lockdown. Up to 1.48m construction staff and self-employed workers have received some kind of wages support during the coronavirus outbreak. According to latest Government figures, so far 801,000 self-employed construction workers have received pay-outs from the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme, totalling over £2.8bn. Over the same period, more than 150,000 construction firms submitted claims for Government support for 680,000 furloughed staff under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

Specialist teams from Wates Facilities Management have put together a five-step plan to make premises safe with the company’s headquarters in Leatherhead used as an example in a staff video.
Coronavirus and household spending
More than one-fifth of usual household spending has not been possible during the lockdown, Office for National Statistics (ONS) analysis reveals. In the financial year ending March 2019, UK households spent an average of £182 per week on activities that have since been largely prevented by government guidelines (such as travel, holidays and meals out). This is equivalent to 22% of a usual weekly budget of £831, money that households could be saving, spending in other areas or using to cover any loss of income. To estimate the potential impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on spending, and the extent to which people might be able to cut back, we have categorised household spending from before the pandemic (based on lockdown measures introduced on 23 March 2020). There is more detail on our categories in the Spending classifications section. Across all households, more than half (53%) of usual spending covers “non-discretionary” items such as food and housing costs. We refer to this as spending on “essentials”.

COVID-19 pandemic hits mental health, especially of the young and of women, and widens inequalities
The COVID-19 episode has had substantial negative impacts on mental health across the population. The biggest impacts have been on the gender and age groups – broadly women and the young – that already had relatively low levels of mental health. Pre-existing inequalities in mental health have therefore been exacerbated by the crisis. The study, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, uses new data collected by the University of Essex at the end of April. The data cover nearly 12,000 people who had been asked questions about their mental health annually over several years and who were asked the same questions again this April. Almost a quarter of respondents reported experiencing at least one mental health problem much more than normal, up from just 10% in the most recent pre-crisis data.
