Pubs Get Green Light For Outdoor Drinking On The Streets


The beer gardens will be patrolled by staff to enforce social distancing rules and pubs automatically allowed to serve alcohol for people to drink on the sidewalk on the street, under new guidelines for the hotel industry.

The government has made plans to introduce a “new standard” in pubs, restaurants and cafes as they prepare to reopen on July 4, with the the two-meter rule should finally be relaxed following a significant drop in the level of viral alert.

Bars will be asked to strictly monitor their beer gardens to ensure social distancing and customers will be encouraged to order their drinks via a phone app.

In restaurants, staff will not be able to set tables in advance while hotel staff is asked to place room service on the door steps to minimize contact between staff and customers.

There will also be a ban on self-service buffets while towels and cutlery should only be taken out with food, according to new Times guidelines.

The guide also states that all menus must be disposable and discarded after each use.

All hotel guests who fall ill will be obliged to isolate themselves at home or in their hotel room which will be locked for 72 hours after their departure.

Gyms will also be asked to impose social distances between their machines – although they are not expected to reopen until the end of the year.

Last night, a government source revealed that science advisers are now “completely comfortable” in reducing the restriction – provided other precautions are in place.

Infections down 4% every day

The coronavirus epidemic is decreasing up to 4% every day, according to government figures.

The Scientific Emergency Advisory Group revealed yesterday the rate of growth of the epidemic – the speed with which the number of cases changes from day to day.

The epidemic generally decreases as the growth rate decreases by 2 to 4% per day.

But this figure could increase in London and the Midlands.

The R-value, the measure of the number of people to whom an infected person transmits the disease, is between 0.7 and 0.9.

A value less than one means that the disease will eventually go away.

While the growth rate shows the size and speed of change, the R-value only reveals the direction of change.

Professor Keith Neal of the University of Nottingham said: “It is good that the growth rate is negative. As the number of cases decreases, everyone’s risk decreases.

Clubbers may have to wait a while before they can hit the dance floor, as they pose problems of social distancing.

Temperature controls and hand sanitizer at the door could be part of the British night when the clubs finally reopen.

The ministers will publish a law next week to push an “outdoor revolution” in the country’s hotel industry.

Outdoor meals and beverages will be actively encouraged as clients are much less likely to contract coronavirus in the fresh air.

However, there are concerns that long lines outside are an attractive target for terrorism. The council indicates that the queues must be directed around the terminals and other barriers which protect the pedestrians.

But some pubs have vowed to continue anyway. Jack Stein, chief executive of his father Rick Stein’s restaurant chain, told The Telegraph: “ It’s not just about business, we’re British and everyone just wants to go to the pub.

When we can serve that first piece of turbot and that first pint in our pub, it will be fantastic and the whole industry will breathe a sigh of relief.

Last night, a government source revealed that the scientific advisers were now “completely comfortable” in reducing the restriction – provided other precautions were in place.

This may include ensuring that buildings are properly ventilated, greater use of masks or the installation of screens where people may be too close to each other.

The senior source’s remarks are the biggest indication to date that scientists will not resist if Boris Johnson chooses to relax the two-meter rule. The Prime Minister told the public yesterday to “watch this space” when asked if the rule would be relaxed in schools.

Johnson has already announced a review of controversial directions in the face of growing pressure from the pub, hotel and restaurant chains and his own backbenchers.

The indication that the rules could be abolished came when the four chief medical officers of the United Kingdom announced that they would lower the level of viral alert from four to three following a spectacular reduction in new infections, hospitalizations and death.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock called the change “a great time for the country.” Johnson yesterday urged the public to “start thinking about a world where we are less afraid of this disease.”

He said the government would move from a “universal” national lockdown to local restrictions to contain smaller epidemics.

In other developments of the coronavirus crisis in Britain today:

  • The government has been accused of understating the number of deaths from coronaviruses after it emerged that more than 1,000 people died in the UK every day for 22 consecutive days;
  • Schools in England have to wait a fortnight to find out how the government plans to bring each child back to school in September;
  • This comes as plans in Northern Ireland suggest that teachers will have to move between classrooms and school bags could be banned;
  • A Whitehall source said the ministers were considering further loosening the rules by allowing two families to enter “houses in” bubbles of support for each other;
  • A 12-year-old child is among the youngest in Britain to die from a coronavirus after he died in hospital earlier this week.

Meanwhile, a Whitehall source said the ministers were considering further easing the rules by allowing two families to enter “houses in” bubbles of support for each other.

Johnson said yesterday that the two-meter rule will soon be relaxed for schools.

But if it were changed for schools, it would almost certainly be reduced for the hospitality sector, workplaces and throughout government guidelines on social distancing.

Praising the worsening alert level, Johnson told Sky News that the pandemic had been a “horrible shock”.

He added that “ the British people are working hard to roll it back, but we are starting to make real progress with testing and tracing, with treatments for the disease and hopefully as we move towards ‘Autumn, people will be much more confident’.

When asked if the two-meter rule would be removed for schools, he replied, “Watch this space. Watch this space, we will make new changes if science allows.

Hospital salutes milestone

For the first time since the start of the pandemic, there are no patients with viruses in intensive care in the largest hospital trust in England, said its managing director.

Dr. David Rosser, who heads the Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust for University Hospitals, added that there were signs that patients infected with coronavirus “did not seem as sick, on average, as they l ‘were’.

He revealed that the trust had lost 30% of its normal processing capacity for regular services to deal with Covid-19.

Dr. Rosser, whose trust manages four hospitals, including the large Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, said there were only 43 “active Covid” patients in treatment across the trust.

A government source later said that the scientific advisers were “completely comfortable” to relax the rule if “mitigation measures” such as masks were introduced at the same time.

Earlier this week, the Prime Minister announced that he had ordered a review of whether the two-meter rule will be relaxed, which would require the advice of scientists, medical experts and economists.

His intervention came under pressure from business leaders and MPs who warned that the hotel sector would completely collapse unless it was overhauled.

Pubs, restaurants and hotels could reopen on July 4.

But it is not yet clear when the review will be published and whether it will recommend reducing the distance to one and a half meters.

A Lancet study earlier this month found that keeping a meter away reduced the risk of infection to just 2.6% compared to a meter.

Two meters further reduced it to just 1.3%.

The UK two-meter rules are out of step with most other countries and the World Health Organization.

Government accused of downplaying coronavirus deaths at the height of the crisis, as it is revealed that more than 1,000 people died in the UK every day for 22 consecutive days

By Tom Pyman for MailOnline

The government was accused last night of underestimating the number of deaths from coronaviruses after it emerged that more than 1,000 people died in the UK every day for 22 consecutive days.

The figures, which reflect deaths in hospitals, nursing homes and private homes, overshadow those announced by ministers at the time, which included only hospital deaths.

New analysis has shown that there were more than 1,000 deaths a day for 22 consecutive days – coinciding with Boris Johnson’s hospitalization for coronavirus.

Sir David King, a former government chief science advisor and chairman of the independent Sage group, told the Guardian that the divergence in numbers was “ an attempt to minimize the adversity the country faces ”.

Britain’s worst day during the crisis occurred on April 8, just before Easter, when a record 1,445 people died in 24 hours..

When Foreign Minister Dominic Raab intervened on behalf of Boris Johnson, hospitalized on April 9, to reveal the figures from the previous day, he announced that the death toll had increased by 881 – which means that the real count was about 64% higher than what the nation had said. at the time.

Similarly, just three days earlier, Raab described the increase in the number of deaths in the past 24 hours to 439, but official figures show that almost three times as many people have actually died from the virus.

Between April 2 and April 23, more than 1,000 people fell victim to the virus every day, but none of the Downing Street briefings at that time suggested that the number of daily deaths had reached four digits.

Critics argue that the government should have been clearer in explaining that the number of deaths per day were only estimates of actual figures, given the exclusion of thousands of people who died outside hospitals.

A change to include deaths in all settings, including those without the Covid-19 test, was not made until late April, with health officials insisting that collecting complete data was time-consuming and technically difficult.

In the two months that followed, the number of deaths per day fell considerably, sometimes reaching double the figures, now that the peak of the crisis had passed.

This has resulted in a loosening of certain foreclosure measures, with non-essential stores opening this week for the first time since March, but with a series of social distancing measures.

Yesterday, 173 deaths were announced, experts describing the virus as “firmly in retirement”.

Sir David King, who was the government’s chief scientist from 2000 to 2007, previously accused the government of blunders by trying to pursue a policy of “collective immunity” that would have kept the economy going.

He added; “They didn’t say we had to add all these other numbers, which would have been more honest to say.

“This is the most disastrous management of any serious challenge to government in 100 years.”

A government spokesperson insisted that ministers had always been “ transparent ” about reporting the deaths of Covid-19 and said it was “ wrong to suggest that we somehow try is to reduce the scale of this global pandemic. ”

A retrospective series of daily deaths was subsequently published by the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs.

It was recently revealed that April was the deadliest month on record in England and Wales, according to official statistics which reveal the true picture of the coronavirus crisis.

The number of people who died in April each year has remained relatively stable at around 40,000 or in the past 13 years, but has increased dramatically to 88,000 this year as the coronavirus epidemic raged across the Kingdom -United.

WHAT WERE THE MORTALEST MONTHS OF RECORD?

April 2020 is the month in which England and Wales have recorded more deaths from any cause than at any time since the start of the current records in 2006.

It was the only month with the 10 worst that was not in the dead of winter – eight of the 10 were in January and one in December.

The 10 months had the highest number of deaths:

  1. April 2020: 88,153 people died
  2. January 2018: 64,154
  3. January 2015: 60,891
  4. January 2017: 57,368
  5. January 2016: 56,706
  6. January 2009: 55,045
  7. January 2019: 53,910
  8. December 2008: 53,594
  9. January 2013: 52,898
  10. January 2008: 52,057

Data shows that 88,153 people died in both countries – more than double the number recorded last April (44,123) or before the epidemic became uncontrollable in February 2020 (43,653).

The figure, published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), shows that the arrival of Covid-19 on the British coast killed twice as many people as in a normal month.

In London, this effect was even worse, with surprising figures showing that the number of people who died in April was three times what it was the same month last year.

The statistics came as a grim analysis by the Financial Times claimed that Britain suffered the highest excess mortality rate of any comparable country during the coronavirus pandemic.

It showed that the 59,537 additional deaths recorded since the start of the epidemic amounted to 891 deaths per million people. This figure was higher than in any other country in Western Europe or the United States, with Italy at just under 800 per million.

Monthly data showed that in January this year, 56,706 people died in England and Wales, which was high but not unknown for the winter.

Next came 46,653 in February and 49,723 in March.

However, the month of April rocketed the figure from 88,153 to 0.15% of the total population.

Regionally, the largest increase in deaths between April last year and April this year occurred in London, where it increased 197% from 4,102 to 12,175.

It also more than doubled in the West Midlands, which is centered around Birmingham, from 4,527 to 9,932 (119%).

And in the North West, including Lancashire, Cumbria and Manchester, it increased 112% from 5,835 to 12,354.

Britain announces 173 more Covid-19 deaths with ‘withdrawing’ virus as health officials confirm epidemic decreases by 4% every day and crucial R levels remain below level dreaded of a

Britain announced 173 more coronavirus deaths yesterday, including a 12-year-old child, government scientists confirmed that the epidemic was on the decline, the number of new cases falling by 4% per day and the rate of R crucial staying below the dreaded level of one.

Issue 10’s Scientific Advisory Committee, SAGE, found that the reproductive rate – the average number of people infected with each Covid-19 patient – is still between 0.7 and 0.9, which means that the coronavirus is firmly behind after terrorizing Britain for months. It must stay below one or Britain will face another crisis.

Separate data released for the first time yesterday also claimed that the UK’s current growth rate – how the number of new daily cases evolves day by day – could be as low as minus 4%. If the rate becomes greater than zero, the disease may again become uncontrollable.

Health ministry officials say the death toll is now 42,461. But the count only includes laboratory-confirmed patients – unlike other overwhelming figures that take into account all suspected deaths and show that the actual number of victims has already exceeded 50,000.

If the rate becomes greater than zero, the disease could again get out of control

The number of daily victims of Covid-19 announced represents a drop of 14% compared to 202 recorded this week last week and is the lowest figure recorded on a Friday since March 20, three days before the imposition of the draconian lock to stop the spread of the disease.

Nicola Sturgeon claimed coronavirus was “ firmly in retreat ” and Boris Johnson hinted at an imminent change to the strict two-meter social distancing rule after British threat level Covid-19 has been significantly reduced from four to three.

And the director general of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust – the largest hospital organization in England – revealed that there were no Covid-19 patients in his intensive care for the first time since the start of the pandemic. , adding that the British infected with a coronavirus do not look as sick as they did ”.

Government scientists released growth rate data for the first time yesterday. So far, SAGE has only provided details on the rate of R – the average number of people to whom an infected person is likely to transmit the virus.

For the United Kingdom as a whole, the current growth rate is minus 4 percent to minus 2 percent and the estimate of the number of reproductions, called R, remains from 0.7 to 0.9.

The growth rate reflects the speed with which the number of infections is changing day by day and, as the number of infections decreases, is another way of tracking the virus.

If the growth rate is greater than zero, and therefore positive, then the disease will develop, and if the growth rate is less than zero, then the disease will decrease.

It is an approximation of the change in the number of infections each day, and the size of the growth rate indicates the speed of change. It takes into account a variety of data sources, including government-run Covid-19 surveillance test programs.

For example, a growth rate of 5% is faster than a growth rate of 1%, while a disease with a growth rate of minus 4% will decrease faster than a disease with a growth rate of minus 1%.

Estimates of R – which are at least three weeks late – do not indicate how quickly an epidemic evolves and different diseases with the same R can cause epidemics to develop at very different speeds.

Growth rates provide information different from estimates of R, suggesting the size and speed of change, while the R value only provides data on the direction of change.

To calculate R, information on the time it takes for a set of people in an infected group to infect a new set of people in the next group is needed.

However, the growth rate is estimated using a range of data similar to R, but it does not depend on “generation time” and therefore requires fewer assumptions to estimate.

Neither of the two measures – R or growth rate – is better than the other, but each provides useful information for monitoring the spread of a disease. Experts say that everyone should be considered along with other measures of the spread of the disease.

Professor Keith Neal, a specialist in infectious diseases at the University of Nottingham, said: “It is good that R stays below 1 and the growth rate is negative. As the number of cases decreases, everyone’s risk decreases.

But he added that it remains unclear how many of the cases included in these calculations are acquired in nursing homes or hospitals – a surveillance sample taken by the Office for National Statistics released yesterday suggests that 3,800 people were affected by the virus in the community in England. .

Data from the Department of Health released yesterday showed that 169,600 tests had been done the day before, a figure that included antibody tests for the front line NHS and caregivers.

But the bosses again refused to say how many people were tested, which means the exact number of Britons who have been swabbed for the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been a mystery since May 22.

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE REALLY DEAD?

Ministry of Health: 42,461

The latest count of deaths from the Ministry of Health for all contexts is 42,461.

Daily data does not represent the number of Covid-19 patients who died in the past 24 hours, but only the number of deaths reported and registered with the authorities.

It also only takes into account patients who tested positive for the virus, as opposed to deaths suspected of being due to the coronavirus.

Individual health organizations: 32,710

The Department of Health has a different deadline for reporting deaths, which means that daily updates from Scotland and Northern Ireland are still out of sync. Wales is not affected, however.

NHS England revealed today that it has recorded 28,221 laboratory-confirmed deaths across the country. But the figure only applies to hospitals – which means deaths in nursing homes are excluded from this count.

Scotland recorded 2,470 deaths from coronavirus among patients who tested positive for the virus, followed by 1,475 in Wales and 544 in Northern Ireland. These tolls include deaths in all contexts.

National statistical organizations: 52,664

Data compiled by statistical agencies in each of the countries of origin shows that 52,664 people died of confirmed or suspected Covid-19 across the UK in late May.

The actual number of victims will be even higher because the count only takes into account the deaths that occurred until June 7 in Scotland and June 5 in the rest of Great Britain, which means that it is expired until to 10 days.

The National Statistics Office confirmed yesterday that on May 29, 47,820 people in England and Wales had died with Covid-19 confirmed or suspected.

The number of coronavirus deaths was 774 on the same day in Northern Ireland, according to the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA).

National Records Scotland – which collects statistics north of the border – said 4,070 people had died across the country as of June 7.

Their accounts are always 10 days behind the Ministry of Health (DH) because they wait until as many deaths as possible for each date have been counted, to avoid having to revise their statistics.

Excessive deaths: 64,402

The total number of excess deaths has now exceeded 64,000.

Excessive deaths are considered an accurate measure of the number of people killed by the pandemic because they include a wider range of victims.

In addition to including people who died with Covid-19 without being tested, the data also shows how many people died because their medical treatment was postponed, for example, or who are not or have not couldn’t get to the hospital when they were seriously ill.

Data from England and Wales show that there were 58,693 additional deaths between March 21 and June 5, as well as 4,769 in Scotland between March 23 and June 7 and 940 in Ireland from North between March 21 and June 5.

Gavin Williamson reveals his intention to create “ bubbles ” of 30 classes so that ALL children return to school in September, while Boris Johnson paves the way for the relaxation of the 2-meter rule and the coronavirus alert

By James Tapsfield, political editor for MailOnline and Mark Duell for MailOnline

Tonight, Gavin Williamson suggested that the class “bubbles” be doubled to 30 children so that all schools are fully operational by September.

The Secretary of Education alluded to a doubling of the group’s current size, stressing the government’s determination to have “every child back in every annual group in every school” after the summer vacation.

He said the “bubbles” would be expanded in the future to “include the whole class” – which would be around 30 students. But he declined to give further details, saying that full advice for schools will be released in the next fortnight.

“Protective measures will still have to be put in place to ensure the safety of children,” he said during the Downing Street briefing.

Earlier, Boris Johnson solemnly promised that schools would return fully in September and alluded to an imminent change to the two-meter rule – something that would delight businesses and Conservative MPs.

An exuberant PM welcomed the news that the alert level for coronaviruses had finally been reduced from four to three, which means that the Joint Biosecurity Center concluded that there was no longer any “high transmission”.

Asked during a visit to a primary school at Hemel Hempstead to find out if the restriction will be relaxed, Mr. Johnson said, “Watch this space.”

And in his most emphatic statement to date, he stated that his intention was “absolutely” to have all students return full-time by September.

Figures released today show that Britain’s debt is now larger than the economy as a whole for the first time in 57 years, as GDP plunges and millions of people face unemployment. But the news has been better, as retail sales have rebounded from their April lows.

M. Johnson a fait face à un contrecoup à la fin du mois dernier lorsqu’il a annoncé des ajustements au verrouillage, avant qu’il ne ressorte que l’alerte n’avait pas été modifiée par rapport au niveau quatre – ce qui, selon la propre définition du gouvernement, exige que les “ mesures et restrictions sociales actuelles en matière de distanciation sociale ” restent. en place.

Cette décision a été approuvée par les médecins hygiénistes en chef de l’Angleterre, de l’Écosse, du Pays de Galles et de l’Irlande du Nord.

Selon les rumeurs, le médecin-chef de l’Angleterre, Chris Whitty, aurait fait obstacle à cette décision, bien que l’on pense également que ses homologues en Écosse, au Pays de Galles et en Irlande du Nord se soient opposés.

Dans une déclaration conjointe aujourd’hui, ils ont déclaré: “ Le Centre conjoint de biosécurité a recommandé que le niveau d’alerte COVID-19 passe du niveau 4 (une épidémie de COVID-19 est en circulation générale; la transmission est élevée ou augmente de façon exponentielle) au niveau 3 (A L’épidémie de COVID-19 est en circulation générale).

Dans sa déclaration la plus catégorique à ce jour, Boris Johnson a déclaré que son intention était «absolument» que tous les élèves retournent à l'école à plein temps d'ici septembre.

Comment fonctionne le système d’alerte Covid au Royaume-Uni?

Le système Covid Alert Levels a été annoncé par Boris Johnson dans son discours télévisé à la nation le 10 mai.

Le Premier ministre a déclaré qu’il mettait en place le JBC pour exécuter le système d’alerte, qui est similaire à celui utilisé pour établir la menace terroriste.

Il a cinq niveaux du niveau un à cinq en fonction de la propagation de Covid-19 à travers le pays.

Au niveau cinq, la transmission est élevée ou en augmentation et il existe un risque que les services de santé soient dépassés. Le niveau un signifie que le coronavirus n’est plus connu au Royaume-Uni.

Le niveau trois correspond à l’épidémie en circulation générale et à l’assouplissement progressif des restrictions, tandis qu’au niveau deux, le nombre de cas et la transmission sont faibles et des restrictions «nulles ou minimales» sont requises.

«Les directeurs marketing pour l’Angleterre, l’Écosse, le Pays de Galles et l’Irlande du Nord ont examiné les preuves et sont d’accord avec cette recommandation de passer au niveau 3 à travers le Royaume-Uni.

«Il y a eu une diminution constante des cas que nous avons vus dans les quatre pays, et cela continue. Cela ne signifie pas que la pandémie est terminée. Le virus est toujours en circulation générale et des épidémies localisées sont susceptibles de se produire.

“Nous avons fait des progrès contre le virus grâce aux efforts du public et nous avons besoin que le public continue de suivre attentivement les directives pour garantir que ces progrès se poursuivent.”

S’adressant à Sky News lors de sa visite aujourd’hui, M. Johnson a déclaré “ surveillez cet espace ” lorsqu’on lui a demandé si les restrictions de distanciation sociale pourraient être réduites pour aider les écoles à revenir en septembre.

Il a dit: «Bien sûr, sur les mesures de distanciation sociale, comme je l’ai dit,« surveillez cet espace ».

«Nous apporterons de nouveaux changements si la science le permet.

“Je pense que c’est ce que le public veut aussi voir, ils veulent nous voir travailler avec la réalité.”

Le Premier ministre a déclaré que le Royaume-Uni était en train de passer d’un monde où des restrictions générales étaient nécessaires à «un monde où nous sommes en mesure de faire des réponses plus localisées».

M. Johnson a déclaré que son intention était “absolument” que les enfants de tous âges puissent retourner à l’école d’ici l’automne, cinq jours par semaine.

«Permettez-moi d’être très clair – je veux un monde dans lequel, dans la mesure du possible, à condition que nous puissions rendre les salles de classe sûres et je pense que nous pouvons, je veux que chaque enfant, chaque élève, chaque élève, de retour en septembre.

“Je suis sûr que nous pouvons y arriver.”

Il a ajouté: «Nous devons commencer à penser à un monde dans lequel nous avons moins d’appréhension à l’égard de cette maladie.

«Oui, cela a été un choc horrible pour le pays et pour le monde, et je pense que les Britanniques ont travaillé incroyablement dur pour y faire face.

“Mais nous commençons à faire de réels progrès avec les tests et les traces, avec les traitements de la maladie, et j’espère que, à mesure que nous avancerons à l’automne, les gens seront beaucoup, beaucoup plus confiants.”

Le Pays de Galles maintient la limite de voyage de cinq milles pendant encore quinze jours – mais le tourisme reprendra le mois prochain

Le Pays de Galles prévoit de mettre fin à sa restriction de cinq milles sur les voyages le mois prochain et d’autoriser les vacanciers à revenir une semaine plus tard, a déclaré le Premier ministre.

Mark Drakeford a déclaré que les entreprises touristiques ont trois semaines pour se préparer aux changements potentiels, ce qui permettra d’utiliser des logements autonomes tels que des caravanes et des chalets.

M. Drakeford a déclaré que la marge de manœuvre supplémentaire pour lever les restrictions a été créée par les efforts du public pour maîtriser les coronavirus au Pays de Galles, où le nombre R montre que Covid-19 recule plus rapidement qu’en Angleterre.

Il a déclaré que la marge de manœuvre supplémentaire pour lever les restrictions a été créée par les efforts du public pour maîtriser les coronavirus au Pays de Galles, où le nombre R montre que Covid-19 recule plus rapidement qu’en Angleterre.

Il a déclaré qu’au plus fort de la pandémie, une personne sur 1000 au Pays de Galles était «probablement contagieuse», mais qu’elle est désormais tombée à une personne sur 10 000 ou moins.

Cela signifie que lundi verra également la réouverture de tous les magasins non essentiels tant qu’ils pourront se conformer aux mesures de distanciation sociale, tandis que le marché du logement reprendra également, et davantage d’activités individuelles de plein air telles que le tennis seront autorisées pour la première fois depuis le verrouillage. .

La prière privée dans les lieux de culte avec distanciation sociale peut également avoir lieu à partir du lundi, avec des services de garde d’enfants disponibles sur une base progressive pour aider les personnes à retourner au travail.

M. Drakeford a déclaré au point de presse quotidien du gouvernement gallois que l’exigence de «rester local» de cinq milles se terminerait le 6 juillet si les transmissions continuaient à chuter, mais a averti que «le coronavirus n’est pas terminé».

M. Williamson a déclaré: «Nous avons créé des bulles d’enfants dans la classe, créant un environnement protecteur pour ces enfants.

“Actuellement, nous en sommes à 15, ce que nous envisageons de faire, c’est d’élargir ces bulles pour inclure toute la classe.”

Il a déclaré que les signes de réduction du virus signifiaient que les ministres pourraient envisager de «s’assurer que chaque enfant retourne à l’école».

M. Williamson a ajouté: “ Nous reconnaissons qu’il faudra encore mettre en place des mesures de protection pour garantir la sécurité des enfants et garantir la sécurité des enseignants et de tous ceux qui travaillent à l’école.C’est pourquoi nous allons de publier de nouvelles orientations au cours des deux prochaines semaines. ”

Geoff Barton, secrétaire général de l’Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), a déclaré que les écoles et les collèges tentaient de se préparer pour septembre au milieu d’un “trou noir d’information” du gouvernement.

S’exprimant après que Boris Johnson a défini son objectif de retourner tous les élèves en classe cinq jours par semaine en automne, M. Barton a déclaré: “ Tout le monde veut que tous les enfants retournent à l’école à plein temps à partir de septembre.

«Pour que cela se produise, les directives actuelles du gouvernement devraient être modifiées car il ne serait pas possible de le faire tout en limitant la taille des classes à 15. Vous auriez besoin de deux fois plus de salles de classe et deux fois plus d’enseignants.

“Les écoles et les collèges font tout leur possible pour préparer septembre dans ce qui ne peut être décrit que comme un trou noir d’information de la part du gouvernement”, a-t-il ajouté.

Le groupe consultatif scientifique pour les urgences a confirmé la semaine dernière que le taux de R au Royaume-Uni se situait entre 0,7 et 0,9 – bien que dans certaines régions, il pourrait encore être légèrement plus élevé. Tout chiffre inférieur à 1 signifie que la prévalence du virus diminue.

M. Hancock a déclaré que l’abaissement du niveau d’alerte Covid-19 était un «grand moment» pour le Royaume-Uni et a montré que «le plan du gouvernement fonctionne».

Il a déclaré: “ Le passage du Royaume-Uni à un niveau d’alerte inférieur est un grand moment pour le pays et un véritable témoignage de la détermination du peuple britannique à vaincre ce virus.

«Le plan du gouvernement fonctionne. Les taux d’infection baissent rapidement, nous avons protégé le NHS et, grâce au travail acharné de millions de personnes dans nos services de santé et de protection sociale, nous remettons le pays sur pied.

Cependant, le gouvernement est toujours confronté à des doutes sur son système de recherche des contacts – qui sera essentiel pour empêcher le virus de réapparaître et plonger le pays dans un autre blocage dévastateur.

M. Hancock a été hier contraint de faire un demi-tour embarrassant sur l’application de traçage du NHS, admettant qu’elle n’avait pas fonctionné et qu’elle serait abandonnée.

Au lieu de cela, le gouvernement suivra des pays tels que l’Allemagne et se concentrera sur la version construite par les géants de la technologie Apple et Google.

Le logiciel NHS, initialement promis pour la mi-mai, n’a pas été en mesure de repérer 25% des utilisateurs Android à proximité et 96% des iPhones lors d’un essai sur l’île de Wight.

La dette britannique est plus grande que le PIB pour la première fois en 57 ANS à près de 2 billions de livres sterling

British debt is higher than GDP for the first time in 57 years while the coronavirus is wreaking havoc, it was revealed today.

Public sector debt was just under £ 2 trillion at the end of last month, equivalent to 100.9% of GDP.

This dark milestone was reached after the government was forced to borrow £ 55.2 billion during the month. This was nine times the May figure from last year, and the highest since the records began in 1993.

The last time the debt was larger than the economy as a whole was in 1963.

Data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) highlights the extent of the damage inflicted on businesses and public finances by foreclosure.

The government is currently supporting 9.1 million jobs through the layoff plan, which, with the rescue of the self-employed, is expected to cost more than £ 100 billion.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak, who lobbied Cabinet for the two-meter social distance rule to be relaxed, said there was mounting evidence of a “severe impact” on the UK. “The best way to restore our public finances to a more sustainable basis is to reopen our economy safely so that people can return to work,” he said.

Pendant ce temps, la technologie Apple et Google peut repérer 99% des contacts étroits utilisant n’importe quel type de smartphone – mais M. Hancock a déclaré qu’elle ne pouvait pas dire de manière fiable à quelle distance ils étaient.

Last night at the Downing Street briefing, the cabinet minister seemed to point to Apple: “Our application will not work because Apple will not change its system”.

Mais une source Apple a déclaré au Times qu’elle n’avait pas été informée de cette annonce ni consultée sur le projet de collaboration.

«Nous ne savons pas ce qu’ils entendent par ce modèle hybride. They didn’t tell us about it, ”said the source.

Sur l’idée que sa version était moins précise à mesurer la distance que le modèle NHSX du gouvernement, la source a déclaré: “ L’application a été téléchargée de six millions en 24 heures en Allemagne, les Italiens l’ont depuis lundi, le gouvernement néerlandais et Le gouvernement irlandais l’a et il n’y a eu aucun problème de détection de proximité. “

MailOnline comprend qu’Apple était conscient des inquiétudes du gouvernement quant à la précision du modèle, mais la société a souligné que l’Allemagne avait conclu qu’il était “ préférable à la confiance dans la mémoire des gens ”.

Dans une série d’entretiens ce matin, le ministre des écoles Nick Gibb n’a pas été en mesure de confirmer si un contrat avait été signé entre le gouvernement et Google et Apple pour développer l’application de recherche des contacts.

Lorsqu’on lui a demandé si un accord pour développer l’application avait été conclu avec les géants de la technologie, le ministre des Normes scolaires a déclaré à Sky News: “ Eh bien, c’est une question pour (le secrétaire à la Santé, Matt Hancock).

“Il travaille avec Google et Apple, je ne connais pas les détails des contrats qu’ils ont.”

Il a ajouté: “Ce que je sais, c’est que nous travaillons avec Google et Apple pour résoudre ces problèmes avec le système afin de le rendre robuste et précis dans la façon dont il suit et trace.”

L’assouplissement des mesures de verrouillage en Angleterre au début du mois de juin a suscité des inquiétudes car le niveau d’alerte Covid-19 est resté à quatre, ce qui, selon le gouvernement, signifierait que les restrictions resteraient en place.

Il y avait alors confusion quant à savoir si le JBC était opérationnel et quel rôle il jouerait dans la définition du niveau d’alerte.

Le système Covid Alert Levels a été annoncé par le Premier ministre Boris Johnson dans son discours télévisé à la nation le 10 mai.

La coronaphobie fera-t-elle dérailler la reprise? La moitié des Britanniques déclarent qu’ils ne visiteront aucun magasin non essentiel ce mois-ci malgré les appels de Boris Johnson

Selon un sondage, les craintes liées au coronavirus empêchent les Britanniques de tenir compte des appels de Boris Johnson pour retourner dans les magasins et sauver l’économie.

La recherche pour MailOnline a révélé que huit personnes sur 10 n’ont pas encore visité un magasin non essentiel depuis qu’elles ont été autorisées à ouvrir lundi.

Et les deux tiers d’entre eux ont déclaré qu’ils n’avaient pas l’intention de le faire ce mois-ci, malgré les appels du Premier ministre et du chancelier Rishi Sunak pour aider à soutenir les entreprises.

Pendant ce temps, l’enquête Redfield & Wilton Strategies a identifié un fort soutien pour la règle des deux mètres restant en vigueur – malgré les avertissements de l’industrie hôtelière que des millions d’emplois pourraient disparaître à moins que les restrictions ne soient assouplies.

Quelque 57% ont déclaré que la limite de distanciation sociale devrait être appliquée dans les pubs s’ils rouvrent comme prévu le 4 juillet, contre 29% qui souhaitent qu’elle soit assouplie.

Il a dit qu’il était en train de créer le JBC pour exécuter le système d’alerte, qui est similaire à celui utilisé pour établir la menace terroriste. Il a cinq niveaux du niveau un à cinq en fonction de la propagation de Covid-19 à travers le pays.

Au niveau cinq, la transmission est élevée ou en augmentation et il existe un risque que les services de santé soient dépassés. Le niveau un signifie que le coronavirus n’est plus connu au Royaume-Uni.

Le niveau trois correspond à l’épidémie en circulation générale et à l’assouplissement progressif des restrictions, tandis qu’au niveau deux, le nombre de cas et la transmission sont faibles et des restrictions «nulles ou minimales» sont requises.

Aux côtés du professeur Whitty, le Dr Gregor Smith pour l’Écosse, le Dr Chris Jones pour le Pays de Galles et le Dr Michael McBride pour l’Irlande du Nord prennent la décision d’abaisser le niveau.

M. Johnson espère que la réduction pourrait contrer certaines des craintes liées aux coronavirus qui semblent empêcher les Britanniques de tenir compte des demandes de retour dans les magasins et de sauver l’économie.

L’Irlande du Nord présente ses plans pour la session d’automne – avec une feuille de route pour les écoles anglaises prévue pour les deux prochaines semaines

Une feuille de route pour les écoles afin de préparer le retour complet des élèves en septembre devrait être publiée dans les deux prochaines semaines, selon le ministère de l’Éducation.

S’exprimant lors de la conférence de presse d’aujourd’hui à Downing Street, le secrétaire à l’Éducation, Gavin Williamson, a déclaré que le gouvernement voulait augmenter les bulles de distanciation sociale dans les écoles pour inclure des classes entières.

Le Premier ministre Boris Johnson a déclaré plus tôt dans la journée: “Permettez-moi d’être très clair – je veux un monde dans lequel, dans la mesure du possible, à condition que nous puissions rendre les salles de classe sûres et je pense que nous pouvons, je veux que chaque enfant, chaque élève, chaque élève, en septembre.

Les syndicats d’enseignants ont demandé des éclaircissements sur la manière dont les écoles retourneront à leur plein fonctionnement en septembre, après que l’homologue du DfE en Irlande du Nord a publié son propre plan aujourd’hui.

Paul Whiteman, secrétaire général du syndicat des chefs d’établissement NAHT, a déclaré: “ Le désir de ramener tout le monde est correct, mais nous devons savoir ce que pense le gouvernement et les scénarios qu’il envisage.

«Cela donnera aux communautés scolaires ce dont elles ont besoin pour passer ce trimestre et planifier la nouvelle année scolaire en septembre.»

Kevin Courtney, secrétaire général adjoint du Syndicat de l’éducation nationale (NEU), a ajouté: “Les espoirs du Premier ministre ne suffisent pas”.

“Si les exigences de l’éloignement social – afin d’arrêter un deuxième pic – étaient réduites même à 1 mètre, alors la plupart des écoles ne pourraient pas avoir 30 enfants dans une classe”, a-t-il ajouté.

Aujourd’hui, le ministère de l’Éducation d’Irlande du Nord a publié un document de 53 pages décrivant comment les écoles devraient se préparer pour la session d’automne.

Une interdiction des cartables, des heures de repas dans les salles de classe et des horaires d’arrivée décalés figurent parmi les recommandations des nouvelles orientations pour le secteur de l’éducation.

Northern Ireland's Department of Education published guidance on Friday explaining how classrooms could be set out from the start of the autumn term

Northern Ireland’s Department of Education published guidance on Friday explaining how classrooms could be set out from the start of the autumn term

The guidelines warn schools should be ready to exclude students who don’t obey new rules. It writes: ‘Pupil behaviour policy should be reviewed to ensure that it covers COVID-19 related incidents and should make provision for the school to be able to sanction, up to and including exclusion, pupils who wilfully refuse to adhere to arrangements of social distancing and deliberately cough or spit at pupils or staff, putting them at risk.’

For secondary schools, pupils must have a minimum of 50% classroom time, raising the possibility of children attending school for one week in every two.

Pupils in Year 10 (the equivalent to Year 9 in England) and below will be kept in small protective bubbles to limit mixing among the wider school population.

The bubble model will be maintained during meal and play times, with guidance suggesting lunch could be delivered to classrooms.

Children should continue to be educated via remote learning when they are not in class, the guidance states.

It also recommends staggered arrival and departure times from schools, to avoid large crowds gathering at school gates.

Children will be prevented from bringing items such as bags into the school setting and taking items out of school at the end of day.

Pupils will be asked to wash their hands on arrival at schools and at regular intervals throughout the day.

When it comes to practical work in lessons such as science or technology, the new guidance states: ‘Older children should be organised into small, consistent groups and assigned clearly defined zones or spaces within which they should endeavour to observe social distancing as far as practicable.’

Schools are urged to introduce one way systems and apply a flexible approach to timetabling to minimise contact in corridors.

Secondary schools are urged to consider a new model whereby the teacher would move between classes, not the children.

The guidance says children should not wear PPE in school and staff should only wear it in very limited circumstances, such as giving medication to a pupil.

The document also contains guidance for children and pupils who are in medically vulnerable categories or who live with people who are.

Northern Ireland’s Education Minister Peter Weir said the guidance had been formulated in consultation with trade unions, managing authorities and education support bodies.

He added: ‘This guidance in many ways reinforces practices we have all become accustomed to.

‘It promotes regular hygiene practices on arrival at schools and throughout the school day and the application of the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ principles.

‘The guidance also promotes a flexible approach to use of existing spaces as a means of maximising face-to-face teaching opportunities and provides the framework within which workforce planning can now be developed.

‘Today is an important starting point in the journey to reopening schools and reflects our current circumstances.

‘We will continue to be guided by medical and scientific developments between now and August 24.’

Speaking on plans for schools in England, Mr Williamson said: ‘Over the coming weeks we will publish further information and guidance to help schools prepare for a full return in September.

‘We are working across Government and with the sector to ensure these plans are fully in place so that this can happen.’
