The total death toll as a result of Coronavirus now stands at 44,830, an increase of 11 as of today. 

Tomorrow the government is set to announce that face-masks will be compulsory in shops across England, however these restrictions will not come into place until 24 July. Fines of up to £100 will be levied against anyone that breaks the new rules. 

The government’s post-EU immigration rules have come under criticism as it has been revealed that the new fast-track immigration system will not include care workers. Many care workers will be excluded from the list of workers eligible for the fast-track because their roles do not require sufficiently advanced qualifications or attract high enough salaries.
