Split in government over extension of lockdown

Boris Johnson’s cabinet is reportedly torn over when to end the UK’s lockdown – with some ministers arguing that is should continue for another six weeks. The current social-distancing restrictions were put in place for a period of three weeks on March 23, with the last day due tomorrow. However, the government has already stated that these measures will continue past the deadline. So-far 9,875 people have died from Covid-19 in the UK.

A Cabinet source has now revealed that ministers are split between wanting to save lives and wanting to protect the economy, as some fear current action to keep the public safe could create bigger problems for the UK in the future. According to The Sun, Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Home Secretary Priti Patel want the current lockdown to be extended by three weeks, while Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Michael Gove say the UK needs longer.

Estimated 1000’s care home deaths left off official records

Hundreds of people are dying in care homes from confirmed or suspected coronavirus without yet being officially counted, the Guardian has learned.

More than 120 residents of the UK’s largest charitable provider of care homes are thought to have died from the virus in the last three weeks, while another network of care homes is reported to have recorded 88 deaths. Care England, the industry body, estimated that the death toll is likely to be close to 1,000, despite the only available official figure for care home fatalities being dramatically lower. The Office for National Statistics said this week that 20 people died in care homes across the whole of England and Wales in the week to 27 March.
